Still 'On The Road Again'

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love driving this car, it has a very small blind spot which is even smaller when the mirrors are set right. The pick up when needed is very good, especially on interstate traveling. And especially on two lane roads where allowed passing is limited. I get the gas mileage that was indicated on purchase., even tho this car is nearly sixteen years old. with 3000 mile oil changes this car does not have to have oil added to date, with it currently having some over 170,000 miles on it. The positive traction is great here in the Midwest. Paint is clear, and except for the usual minor chips from gravel and debris on interstate roads there is NO peeling. I have had no problems except having to take it in for new rotors about 3 months after purchase which was covered under warranty, and a new catalytic converter at about 140,000 miles. Also the speed control switch died about that time, which may have been my fault for not turning it off in heavy traffic. All in all this car has and still serves me well.

Critique of the 2003 Chevrolet Impala from a devoted owner

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

This car is everywhere, very reliable. I don't drive much, less than 6,000 miles a year, I have less than 75,000 miles on it today. I live in a very small town in Texas and there are 4 of them. I'm retired and I'll have this car forever. It is the luxury model with leather seats, bottom warmers for the winter, a/c runs great. I did find a very good general mechanic, which is very important for older cars and getting proper parts. If you want reliability, comfort, and safety, try to find a good used one. If you have to have new, the new ones are very nice and attractive and have heard they are as reliable. My car is inexpensive, except for tires, but got to have them. It is 16 years old so the entertainment tech is basic. I have an iPhone so I can adapt. Being in a hot climate means a/c use so make sure hoses and belts are current and a/c checked every year. Have fun with your new used Impalas!

Long Lasting and Reliable Chevy Impala

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

The car is pretty old and has been in our family for a very long time so it is starting to experience transmission issues but before we got it my mom had it and my grandma and there really were not a whole lot of issues. It has been a great family car and even with the few issues it has been having we haven't had to put a whole lot of work into it. Overall I would absolutely look at Impala's again in the future when it does come time to needing a new car as they have always been reliable

- Miranda F

Fun to drive impala that has been kept in the family.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

Have had this vehicle in the family for almost 10 years and have never had really any problems with it. The only issue I can really complain about is when it is cold out if I turn off the heater and then go to turn it back on it makes a really loud clicking like noise that will keep going for a few minutes until it warms up again. Other than that the performance is great and I do really enjoy using this vehicle.

Having trouble with my car starting.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

I really love my car it has never broken down and left me stranded anywhere so far but I have only had it for 2 yrs and after about 15 months it started not wanting to start unless I unhook the battery for 10 to 20 minutes then it will start right up with no problem at all but even though I still love my car it's great for my family.

- Samantha T

I like the buttons, seats, logos, and trunk.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

The gas mileage could be a little better, and I don't really like how the seats in the back of my vehicle feel. I really love the way my car drives, and how fast she can go when I need to drive fast. A cool thing about my car is that it has an automatic seat, and that I have a little lighter for my cigarette that comes with the car.

- Abigail K

I love that the vehicle is very spacious

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

I guess I don't have too much of a problem with the vehicle it's just that its older and shakes a lot. The style is kind of for older people. I do love all the space it has inside for my kids. That's a plus. Overall it has lasted a long time given its age. I would prefer something more modern. It is also kind of huge.

It's An Ok Vehicle For A Commuter

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

The car is good performance wise, but it drinks gas. I travel often for work and leisure and it get me there sometimes it has issues. I had an 2003 Taurus and it would easily do 150-200 more miles per tank. It constantly needs some part or another due to computer. Overall it's good to me and my family.

It has a great running motor Sunroof A/C blows very good Great CD Player

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

I must say my vehicle is very reliable. I've had my vehicle for about 8 years total. I've had some motor work done to it 2 months ago. It gets me to point a to b. Air blows very good. This vehicle gives me a smooth ride. Also I've recently drove it out of town to Texas last month without any problems.

- Cord W

My vehicle is very zippy and practical.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

The only problems I have experienced other than the recalls that Chevrolet had issued for the car, is the typical spots of rusting every single car of this model has and the ABS system. It drives well, maintains well and is a great vehicle, even without me fixing the ABS issue. It is too expensive.

- Faith S

It has a push cigarette lighter you don't see them in the newer cars

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

I have not had any problems with it. Performance is fine. It is a reliable car. It is very comfortable. It has a large trunk space. It is very roomy inside. I like that it has cloth seats it's easier to clean. I like that it fits seven people. It ride's comfortable on long trips.

- Rosemary B

A efficient car for all to drive.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love the vehicle because it is very comfortable and it has features that are common but make it more convenient to drive. The only problem is the exhaust manifold is prone to rust and therefore the tail pipe cannot be hooked back up to it without significant work and cost.

- Mike W

Great Family Car, Smooth Ride & Comfortable

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

Love the spaciousness and the easy drive. Very reliable, decent gas mileage. Only issues I've had are there are no air vents in backseat so gets warmer back there for passengers, and the cruise control sometimes is a little iffy to use. Great family vehicle overall.

- Cameron D

It is not grandma's car. It has giddy up go. I love my car.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

No problems thus far, just normal wear and tear. Drives smooth, good on gas, and is good in the winter. Always starts even in below temps. It is a four door, rear defroster. Headlights can be turned off, instead of continuous running. Does not need special gas.

- Kitty G

Trusty Old Impala with no Issues

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

This car has never failed us. 200,000 miles and has only ever needed routine maintenance. Such a great car! This is the only car I have had that hasn't had issues. The only trouble we have is the pain worse faster than the car. Started with the clear coat.
