2006 Chevrolet Impala Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Impala
Watch the speedometer unless you want to get pulled over. It easily goes from zero to seventy-five with little effort. If you're not used to the car, you could find yourself driving 110 in a 75 zone on the interstate and not notice... unless there are other vehicles around, then you'd wonder why they were all driving so slow because you're passing all of them!
I purchased my vehicle used. It was 6 years old at the time and I've had it now for 6 years as well. It's been missing the visor on the drivers side, which is annoying, but I never thing to replace. The passenger back window doesn't roll down anymore, but I want to fix the tiny oil and coolant leaks before that. Also, the air conditioner has never worked. It's the 3.9 liter engine, so I'm spoiled. Every time I drive another vehicle (i.e. designated driver, when my car is at mechanics) I wonder what's wrong with it and why it accelerates so slowly, and then I remember! Dislikes would be Lithia Motors out of California keeps sending me letters trying to purchase it from me, and also, there's been an ignition recall for 4 years that I can never figure out who to contact to get it fixed.
Great and easy car to maintain.
First of all, my 2006 Chevrolet Impala ltz is a great car. It is plenty of room and plenty of trunk space. Secondly, it comes with a spare tire and jack in the trunk compartment. This car runs very smooth and is relatively good on gas as well. The parts for this car are not expensive and some maintenance can be easily done by anyone with the right tools and knowledge of the car. The only flaw that I personally have with this particular car is that it is a full size car, meaning that it is a little longer than an average car. Other than that, this is a really great car and I would recommend this to anyone that is thinking or looking into buying one of these rides.
Sporty & fun to drive, for the family!
The engine sounds race-y which initially caught my hubby's attention. It runs smooth, not loud inside at all. The seats are comfy and the interior is roomy enough to handle our family of four and our shopping trips! We have enjoyed that it has not had mechanical issues. We keep it serviced regularly and are certain that it will keep us on the road, problem free for miles and miles and miles! The only thing I can think of that has ever been an issue for me is the right rear corner does have a blind spot & though it has not caused a crash for me, it is quite possible it could! It's a sporty, roomy car that keeps us going, we love it!
Chevy Impala's have always been a dependable vehicle.
Chevy impala's have been very good vehicles towards myself. They do not require an abundance of gas while driving. Whenever repairs are needed they are fairly cheap because the junkyard always has one or 6 available to pull parts from. The only thing i dislike that I can think of of the top of my head is the front seats. If you drop something beside your seat ( either side) you are going to be digging for 5 minutes to try and get it back. I've torn/cut the top of my hand. There have been countless times I was trying to maneuver my cell phone back up from under the seat and hurt myself form the small space.
Good mileage. Comfortable.
This sedan has been very reliable but when first purchased something was wrong with the battery. The car dealer took it in to check and again it had a problem. I finally took to a mechanic to check the battery and it had some bad cells so was replaced. Apparently the battery put in by Chevrolet was not good. I am very comfortable driving my car but would like some of the newer features offered in the newer vehicles as brake assist and visual for backing up. . Since my car is getting to old been looking at possibility to purchased. Being smaller engine has very good mileage.
Chevrolet Impala include a smooth ride.
Highlights of the Chevrolet Impala include its smooth ride, roomy interior with lots of space for rear-seat passengers, and one of the most massive trunks available in any sedan. Chevy has also updated the latest Impala generation over its life with newer infotainment and connectivity features. What the Impala has in spades, though, is that smooth large-car feeling on the road. … perhaps the more significant issue is that midsize sedans, such as the excellent new Honda Accord, rival the Impala for space and refinement at a much lower starting price.

There's not one like it and only 106 thousand miles on the odor.
It runs good and drives good. It has am/FM and CD player all electrical windows, doors, mirrors, heated back window defrost, and seats for comfort. Big spacious truck for groceries or traveling with luggage room. Automatic transmission been serviced on regular mileages bases with new tires mounted and balanced rotated as needed. Default it has a salvage title two tone gray almost same color but one shade is darker on drivers door, backdoor and back bumper, as well the spoiler it is black but all and all it is been a great car.
It is a very reliable vehicle to get you to and from places. Smooth drive and gets really great gas mileage in city and freeway. It has a really nice large gas tank and depending how much running around you do you can fill up once a week! It is also very roomy in the back seat easily can fit two car seats in the back and leave enough room for one other passenger too. The trunk is fair large too, you can easily stock up on groceries for at least a week inside, or even grab a mountain bike and even a kid's bike inside.
A steadfast starter for your everyday achiever.
My vehicle was a hand me down therefore I cannot give the most comprehensive review. Though it has been been in my possession for the better part of two years now. In that time I have maintained fluids to try and keep her in suitable shape for my family and myself. The power steering has been a consistent problem. Hundreds have been spent trying to remedy it by this point. The sensors have been known to glitch from time to time. It is a simple design, no needless flashiness. All in all it has held up quite well.
Driving an older Chevy Impala.
I drive a tan 2006 Chevy Impala lt. It has an luxury interior and very spacious. Due to the age of my vehicle my car does not drive as smoothly as it would if it were a newer model. The engine still runs perfectly. What I mean by it not driving as smoothly is it you can hear the bumps and the outside noise. A vehicle should be quieter. It is reliable and I can trust my vehicle on 2-4 hours drives. I would not trust my vehicle on 8 - 10 hour out of state drives due to age. I'm a resident of mobile, al.
