Good, Dependable Family Car
2003 Chevrolet Impala Base
This car was great when new but requires a lot of maintenance once you put over 75,000 miles on it. Having said that, I now have over 210,000 miles on it. These cars tend to have a security problem that I know other people have had as well. Occasionally, the car will not start so you have to leave the key turned on for 10 minutes then it will start. You never know why or when this will happen but it seems to happen more often when it is hot than during the cooler months. The car has continued to get good gas mileage. It is very roomy and comfortable for long trips. Trunk is very large with plenty of room when vacationing. Back seats do lay flat so you can haul longer items through the trunk. Considering it is 16 years old, it has been a good, reliable car and I would recommend it.
