2007 Chevrolet Impala Expert Review
My 2007 Chevrolet Impala is the perfect for me. I love the space in the trunk.
The car is great! I have very little problems with it. A slight annoyance however is that if I wear a ponytail, it hits the headrest and is very uncomfortable. I have not tried adjusting it yet, but that is a very small problem. Also, the cup holders are two different sizes so you cannot fit two big drinks. I will say that the radio does not turn off for a long time when you shut off the car – you have to turn it off manually. Not a big problem, but I found out that owners of the same kind of car also have this problem. For my car, the back door on the passenger side does not always unlock no matter how many times you hit the button. Again, not that big of a deal and I am sure it would be a quick fix if I took it in to someone. The heating and cooling works wonderfully as well. It does not take long for the car to heat up or cool down at all. The trunk is great as well. It is surprising how much room there actually is – it is great for when you are traveling with a lot of luggage and whatnot. It was perfect for when I moved into my college dorm. The remote start is a great feature that I am going to appreciate a lot this coming winter. The AUX cord is also another great feature. I tend to use that more than the radio. All in all I am very satisfied with the car!
Considering the miles I put on my car drives smooth and its good in the snow.
There are a lot of recalls on this make and model. A lot of the recalls just came out the last couple of years and it screwed people that a lot of miles because it didn't cover us even the fact is it is many years later so not fair to the car owner. It also has had many issues with the computer part that controls the traction control likes to turn it is self on and off very dangerous. I have had a lot of issues with the actual control part of the computer would give off the wrong signal and a lot of times the part was actually fine and worked perfectly fine. I am having issues with the board in my steering wheel that has my signal for my turning signals and my bright light control every time I hit a bump my bright lights switch on and blinds people in front of me.
Great family car, dependable and spacious.
Purchased my Impala for it is dependability and roomy interior. Had one previous owner who took care of the car so I had none as well. First repair was a slipping gear in the transmission manifold. Not had any problems since replacing faulty parts. Car has remote start which has been helpful in the hot summer months and cold winter months. Had 3 kids since purchase of vehicle and was delighted to find that 3 car seats are able to fit in the back seat. Trunk is spacious for hauling groceries and car is also great on gas. Have had other minor repairs including water pump, alternator and battery. Overall satisfied with my car and it is perform.
