The Best of the Best Super dependable. Never have any problems.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

My car is a very dependable vehicle and I haven't had any problems out of it except putting a new battery in it. I am a Chevrolet guy born and raised that way. The Chevrolet brand of cars has always been dependable for me and my entire life. I think of the best make model company. My Impala starts every time it has 106,000 miles on it and runs like it's brand new air conditioners never went out never had any problems out of the motor suspension transmission electrical components I've had no problems whatsoever except replacing the battery. I will keep this car probably for another three years it'll probably get up at three or four hundred thousand miles that's just the way Chevrolet is. I would recommend Chevrolet to anyone you're the best of the best

Amazing, Spacious, and Reliable.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The Chevy impala is extremely spacious. We have a 6'5 male in our family and a son that is not too far behind. They both can fit comfortably. The car itself is very reliable. We have driven it across country without problems. It is a 2006 and we've only had to buy new tires, a new battery and about $100 in replacement parts. My fiance replaced everything himself. Thru internet video sites, you can easily find how to do it and with the Chevy impala it is extremely easy. I would 10/10 recommend this car to anyone.

- Dallas K

Good car

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I own a Chevy impala 2006. Great cars very spacious. For having over 300,000 kilometers on it its runs not bad. Had issues with rotors on it. We had to replace the transmission twice. Which is now slipping again. The rpms bounce while driving the lights flicker. Rim's kinda suck always have to fillup the tires when its cold. The seals along the driver and passenger door are slowly going. But its reaction gas not to expensive to get replacement parts. Smooth ride.

2006 Chevy impala overview

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Great car. Great for younger drivers because the car is heavy and well built. Meaning should you get in an accident, the car is very safe. We have a six cylinder which is very responsive regarding power. The vehicle is very comfortable and has great features such as Bluetooth capabilities and GPS. Very few mechanical issues. Most are minor and basic wear and tear. Overall. We love it

- Chris H

Why the 2006 Chevy Impala is a great ride.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love my Impala. It is a very smooth ride, has comfy seating, good mileage especially for a first car, and is just an overall nice vehicle to drive in. It needs to be maintained well so that the engine doesn't have issues, which can happen easier than you'd think. I've had to do a few fix-ups here and there over the last two years, but overall it is a great car and I love having it.

- Lauren H

A reliable car as long as you keep up with regular maintenance

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Fairly reliable, and I nor the previous owner have had no major problems up to this point. At 13 years old it is starting to need a new exhaust but overall the car is doing well. There's over 140,000 miles on it so there is some normal wear and tear. I can fit a lot of things in the cab and trunk. Being able to sit six people has helped with carpooling.

- Emma S

Comfortable and Amazingly Reliable

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I enjoy the smoothness of the ride. All emergency features and comfort features have been incredibly reliable. The amount of space in the trunk and legroom throughout is one of my favorite features. Lumbar support in the front seats are amazing. I would prefer more cup holders, but the amount of other conveniences make it difficult to notice.

- Tatiana T

2006 Chevrolet Impala stays dependable.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Car is roomy. Therefore is quite comfortable. The ride is much better than many other cars I have ridden in. Trunk is roomy. Has great pick up when taking off from a stop. It has been a very reliable vehicle for us. We have had to replace tires and do regular maintenance. Other than that we recently had an issue with struts on the car.

- Lori C

I've always wanted an impala. I've always said Chevrolet were good cars. Roomy.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I am currently having problems with my left driver front tire or rod.. When I turn left the tire locks up and the car hesitates.. I feel like it's unsafe. I can turn right but my left turn needs to be looked at. It just recently started doing that. Thought it was the brakes, got the brakes changed and it still not the problem.

- Natasha S

The speed is what I like. I also love the dynamic body design

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

It's a great car. Spacious and comfortable. The car rides really well and it's surprisingly fast. I don't have a big engine in it but it really keeps up with cars that are supposed to be faster. The safety of the vehicle is really reliable. I have never had any issues out of it and only had to perform the minimum repairs.

- Paul W

The smooth rider; The blackout tinted back windows 3.5 engine.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

My Chevrolet impala is all black I have all new tires front and back I drove my impala to Atlanta Georgia/ East Point Ga where I am currently living from Michigan. So I would say my car is in good shape. But since I've been here there have been minor issues traction control, brake assist, and oil pan gas casket leakage.

- Menzies G

It's a very great car, I recommend anyone to buy a Chevrolet

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Nothing is really wrong with my vehicle I actually love it, I had it for about 5 months now I just currently lost my keys and it's very expensive to get another one that's the only problem I have with my car, I really love Chevrolet cars they last a long time I recommend anyone to get a car made by Chevrolet honestly

- Michelle C

Tinted windows and full size tire.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

My impala is the package. I really enjoy the size and how comfortable it drives. It came with a full size tire so changing a flat is difficult with the jack it comes with and it does not have access to the trunk from the inside cab. The cup holders could be placed different and it has no ashtray or cigarette lighter.

- kelly C

Dependable Impala with low cost maintenance and room for an average family.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The Impala is a very dependable vehicle. We have only had to do minor repairs and upkeep on this vehicle such as routine oil changes, battery, windshield wipers and new tires. It is stylish yet not too expensive. It seats five comfortable or you can easily put in two car seats for the grandkids.

- Terry G

My comfy and reliable vehicle.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

My vehicle is very reliable. The whole car is quite roomy. It has four doors, so it's easy for passengers to get in and out of the car. I drive long distances every other week and I know I can trust my car. It has two cup holders which come in handy. I can even fit a third person up front if needed.

- Nancy G

Chevy impala: big and smooth rider

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Reliable, comfortable, lots of legroom, rides smooth, has aux port and CD rom space. Radio works well, can fit a lot in seats and in trunk. No major issues other than being over ten years old and the power steering is going out. Will fix soon. Works well and without issue on long and short drives.

- Faith B

- Walter J

Honest opinion on a great car

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Spacious and Roomy. It has lasted for a very long time. The gas mileage is not bad for what I pay per month. My kids fit in the vehicle just fine and love all the room. Can get quite warm in the summertime. That is about all I can possibly say about this absolutely terrific car from Chevy

- William H

Decently reliable and comfortable around town.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The performance is average and it was part of a recall which had to do with malfunction in the steering column. It catches a lot of wind when driving on the highway, especially when it's windy. Other than that it has been pretty reliable and there is an aux port built into the console.

- Eric S

Chevy Vehicles- Forever the Best Vehicles

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The Chevy Impala is a really great vehicles. Like many vehicles, it does have its issues but those issues aren't severe. The Chevy Impala is a perfect family vehicle. This car does great on gas. It is very reliable for packing. It surprisingly had a lot more room than I had thought.

- Dominique G

Has a sunroof silver and ugly.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I bought it for 2500 and that was the worst mistake. Everything is wrong with it. I put so much money in it and it still doesn't run. Someone told me when I first got it that I pretty much bought a paper weight I should have listened because not even a week later it blew up on me.

- Rebekah M

2006 Chevy impala review.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I enjoy my impala though it has had issues with the engine and also has collected some cosmetic damage. Reliable but not the most luxurious car. Overall a solid ride. Could use more technology for the year make. Still would be willing to recommend an impala to someone interested.

- Timothy H

Power, comfort, and reliability.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love my 2006 Chevy Impala. It's comfortable to drive, there is plenty of legroom for passengers and car seats in the back seat. And plenty of room in the front seats as well. The 3.5L V6 has more than enough power and beyond basic service, I have had no problems with my impala.

- Nathan B

The engine has good power and doesn't take a lot of money for gas.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I've had very few issues with the car. It's never not started. It's in great shape and I like the performance. I'd love the woodgrain in the interior and the color. The car is big so I have a lot of room. It's comfy and I have a huge trunk. It heats up quickly in the cold.

- Derek A

Comfortable to seat and drive. Enjoy the power the car gives.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I did three years have to get a new engine, but before that and the present I've had no major problems. I enjoy driving the car. It is very comfortable to set and drive. I enjoy that this is a power car. I feel confident in it is power while driving on interstate highways.

- Linda M

White Chevy impala 2006 review.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The only real problem is the headlight cover gets moisture in it and fogs. The lock covers are deteriorating also. The dash faded and there are places where the paint needs touch up. The car runs fantastic just needs normal repair such as tires, brakes and motor mounts.

- Terry G

The vehicle is reliable and fairly durable.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The vehicle has lasted for quite some time, and has only needed a few repairs. It has had a couple of issues, unfortunately, the worst of which has been its tendency to pull to the right even after a front end alignment. Overall, though, it has been a reliable vehicle.

- Brian H

Simple looking beautiful car. Good for a daily driver.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The seats are so comfy, it's spacious. It looks nice inside and out, beautiful wood grain. The only problem I have about the Chevy Impala is that all those cars tend to have the same mechanical problem which is the power steering pump. It goes fast, runs smoothly.

- Lorena P

Great family car dependably great for long. Trips

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

Its spacious has plenty of room in the trunk an ice cold air conditioner awesome on gas. It has airbags cruise. Control the only negative part is the front seal on the transmission leaks a really smooth driving car. Great for long trips over all great family car

- Bonita T

It's a safe, reliable car.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

It's a good car that I haven't had many problems with. The front hangs really low and gets caught on curbs often. It has fake wood paneling inside that dates the car. It's a big car and I think is rated high on the safety scale. It has a sunroof which is nice.

- Kristen S

The car drives very smooth and is very spacious.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

the vehicle has some problems at times with the tires. The transmission mest up a time or two but we applied a new transmission. The car needs a new paint job the front is off with the paint and there's is also a black spot on the left driver side of the car.

- Cristina R

Okay if you have to drive, but not my first choice

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

I had the engine replaced, the axle snapped in half 6 months ago and it just generally would make a better paper weight than car. I know it's 10 years old but it's not fun to drive, the door was squeaking so bad you thought the car was tipping over and dying.

- Lynn D

It runs excellent on gas!

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

This vehicle has an overheating issue. I have gotten the radiator completely taken out and new one was put in. I just found out I have a broken head gasket. It runs great on gas! I did get sealant put on the broken head gasket and it hasn't overheated again!

- Amanda K

Older version still amazing!

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

There is no problems with the car. It is an older model so it is missing some amenities: leather seats, bluetooth, etc. but outside of those few things the car is comfortable, has a huge engine, gets good mileage and is comfortable and extremely spacious.

- Olivia A

Very dependable ride for years.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS

The vehicle runs fantastic however there have been little things have gone wrong over the last three years. The rear window defroster does not work there have been various electronic features that do not work radio warning lites, lock in the glove box.

- Lisa B
