Stylish, Reliable, and Roomy all in one.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love owning my 2008 Impala. It is very roomy, has a huge trunk, and is very comfortable. My first Impala has over 200,000 miles on it and is still running. My main vehicle is also an Impala just with fewer miles. The engines are great! The downside to this year Impala is that they can have shifter issues due to the wiring assembly having too short of a wire. I have also had to replace actuators in both Impalas. They are small inexpensive parts that control airflow. When they break they make a loud tapping sound. Although inexpensive, there are 3 of them and they are tricky to get to. Otherwise, this car is super reliable which is why I own a second one.

- Angie C

My car has been a very reliable car that I've always been able to count on.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My is very reliable. The main issue I've had with it is it makes a ticking sound sometimes when I turn the air on. It doesn't happen all the time but just every once in awhile. It has a standard radio, CD player, and aux cord feature. The middle console sits up and you can fit a third person in the front. I've had this vehicle for about 7 years and it has been a really good car. It was experiencing some oil leaks recently that I had to check on, but it has been good for the past year. I am looking forward to moving on to a newer vehicle some day. Overall, I'm very happy with it though.

Chevy Impala 2008 write up

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My car drives well on clear, dry roads but slides easily on wet or snowy roads. It is big enough for most of my belongings and not too big or too small. It gets excellent gas mileage and very little maintenance. It runs well and only had to change the battery once. It is very reliable on both long and short trips. The radio speaker in the front has gone out and only comes on every now and then but the back speakers work fine and it's pretty loud, the way I like it !

- Kimberly B

It has a decent amount of trunk space, I'm always surprised by how much I fit.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I've had this car for a few years now and I've driven several thousand miles with it. I moved from Massachusetts to North Carolina and I have made several trips back and forth. It makes great mileage and I have a lot of fun traveling. I don't know if it's just my car but the driver side door and rear door on the driver side sometimes do not open and close with the electronic auto lock. I just make sure that I check them whenever I leave my car.

- David L

Basic but reliable vehicle.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Limited vehicle problems since getting it 8 years ago. Other than general maintenance, have had to replace the serpentine belt and drive shaft. Some of the electrics have gone out, such as the lights on dash and window buttons. The gas pump is sensitive, shuts off the gas before it's close to full. Easy to drive, fits a full car pretty comfortably. Plan to keep the car until it's dies on me because I have had such good luck.

2008 Chevy Impala: a brief review

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I've had my Chevy impala for about 6 years, and it has been very reliable. It's comfortable to drive, and has to power to get up to speed quickly. I've never had any large maintenance expenses or issues. It does however have its quirks. There's a loud hammering/clicking sound when adjusting the air on or off from a/c. The locking mechanisms for both back doors don't work... as in they have be unlocked manually from inside.

- Christina S

It is reliable, roomy, simple and easy.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love this vehicle because it is very easy to drive. I have had it for 3 years so far and it has never broken down on me. It is a very roomy car, it has passenger seats. I like to drive me and my friends places so the extra room is always nice. I like how it is a small car but not too small. The fact it is small, makes it easy to park. I am not a very good parker so this is necessary for me until I feel more confident.

Chevrolet impala 2008: A good choice for a small family.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

This is a solid, smooth-riding, fairly roomy car. I have got two small kids and the back seats fit car seats quite nicely. The trunk is pretty big, which makes the car handy for grocery store runs. The car gets decent mileage. It feels safe on the road. I would recommend it to anyone with a small family or who wants a sedan for carpooling, driving friends or clients about town, etc.

Long term issues with the impala

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My car is a luxury car from 2008. As the car has gotten older I've had to get the oil changed more frequently. Recently the power of stirring started to leak, and was told it would expensive to fix. I opted for patches, and went on with my day. The next thing that happened was that the radiator had a hole in it. I paid just over 1000 to have that fixed, and now I'm all fixed up!

- Bridget M

My car picks up speed really well. Its old but it accelerates very well.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My car is a 2008 Chevy Impala, It was once my sister's car but she handed it down to me. It was a fixer upper but it's a really reliable car. I put a brand new battery in it, got my tire fixed, air conditioning recharged, all my windows were broken I got them fixed. It's truly a reliable car brakes are great picks up speed perfectly as well. Just overall a really excellent car.

- Mak W

A smooth, quiet ride that has lots features that make it a must have.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

This car is a smooth ride you will hardly feel road bumps. A gas efficient quiet ride that has lots of sensors that keep you notified of air tire pressure, oil levels, gage notification, and compass. The seats are leather and well cushioned and the heated seats feature is a huge bonus. My guest or copilot would say the best feature would be dual climate control A.C..

- Ally G

Chevy impala zero major problems and many miles!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I have had zero major problems with this car. It has nice leather seats and has about 200,000 miles. It has a huge trunk which has come in handy for road trips and it fits 5 people relatively comfortably. The only thing that I wish was different was that the electronics were more up to date, but that's how it goes with an older car. Awesome other than that!

- Veronica P

Black Chevy Impala with tinted windows and almost a half a million miles.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The car is amazing. It's about 11 years old right now with almost 500,000 and still runs like a charm. The only issue I've had with it is that the starter broke a couple months ago but it was a quick fix and I was back on the road in no time. Takes bumps well, long distance travel isn't a problem and neither is consistent use. I couldn't be happier with it.

- Jacob K

I like the fact that I have a soft top it makes it stand out in the parking lots

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I haven't owned my car for very long. I bought it second hand, 7 months ago. Since then I have only had a couple problems with it, most of which could have been prevented had I known more history of the vehicle. (General maintenance) although now I have to fix the window since they are automatic and the whole switch fell into the door. Just my luck though

- Krystal B

Comfortable and reliable!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The Chevy impala is a medium size sedan. It is very comfortable with cloth seats. Very nice interior. Great gas mileage. It is just a really nice smooth ride. I feel safe in it because it is not too small but easy to drive because it is not too big. It has everything I need in a vehicle but not a ton of extras so it seems it would be easier to maintain.

- Jennifer O

2008 Chevy Impala Police interceptor

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I have had no issues with the car since it was purchased two years ago. Performance for the car is great since it is an old police interceptor car with the 3.9 v6. The handling of the car is great on both dry and wet roads. During the winter it will plow through the snow no problem. The only thing I have not noticed that the car has is the abs system.

- Jordan O

I like to call my car Toni.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Seems to have a lot of problems. That's only because my car is getting older. All cars have problems when getting older. However, my car is very reliable. Which I love. I love the gas mileage. The seats are very comfortable. Everything else about the car is great. I have had little to no problems for the first 10 years of driving it.

- Maddie G

Definitely A Cool Car to be seen in.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

It's a reliable car. Just outdated. It's comfortable. High mileage. Rims. Good on gas. No problems. I might keep it since Chevrolet is no longer making Impalas. Stereo system that is touch screen and Bluetooth features. Manual windows and locks. Small side windows and rear view mirror. Makes it hard to see when your backing up.

- Kristina A

Great performance and very reliable

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

No problems. Great on fuel. Low maintenance. Good riding vehicle. Only issues might be sensors with the tires. ABS is on the vehicle. Good performance in driving. Good suspension system. Also a fuel efficient rated vehicle. Bought vehicle used from CarMax with 25,000 miles. Currently has 156,000 miles. New spark plugs and wires

- Ricardo K

My Chevy Impala is the nicest sudo sporty car that is meant for family!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My Chevrolet Impala is one of the best cars I've ever owned in my life!! Great fuel mileage and very dependable also it makes for a great family car with four doors and it still looks sleek and sporty!! I'd recommend Chevy Impala's to anyone who needed a good reliable car for the next 10 years who doesn't already own one !!

- Justin L

I call my car princess diana cause I love her.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love my impala the heated seats are my favorite features. I also like that the trunk is huge. It is a very smooth drive I have had very few problems now that it is getting older however some of the wiring is going bad. It no longer tells me when I am low on gas, or if I have a light on or if my passenger is not buckled.

- Betty B

Good car not great for a family

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The biggest problem I have with the vehicle is the lack of anti lock brakes. There's been a few occasions that the car has skidded. Also I do not believe the car is big enough for a family, we have 2 children now and its cramped. For just us the car was ok but with kids I would like something safer and bigger

- Arianna M

Reliable vehicle with good gas mileage and features.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Has a lot of electrical issues but has overall good gas mileage and is pretty reliable. I've owned this vehicle now for 4 years and it's only had minor problems. It gets good pick up since it's a cylinder and I like that it takes flex fuel. I would recommend this to someone who needs reliable transportation.

- Kris C

Very basic car but nothing fancy.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

This vehicle is cheaply made with just the basics. There is lots of road noise and it isn't very comfortable. They also have transmission issues with the transmission slipping in low gears. It has been fairly reliable for the long hauls I have used it for. I love the large trunk area for storage.

- Megan G

The seats are very comfortable and supportive.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The car runs extremely well for its age and is very reliable. When first purchased it was a good price for the model and the interior still looks the same. All things considered it's an all around good car with little to no performance problems. Would strongly recommend to other possible buyers.

- Chris J

My vehicle is very roomy for a car

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Overall the vehicle is good. Most problems I have had were very easy fixes. The power steering pump needs replaced at the moment, but besides that the car drives really smooth! The mileage is pretty high but the vehicle is still beyond reliable! I would definitely recommend this car to others

- Roll T

Nice, sharpening looking car with repairs on a low mileage vehicle

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

It's a 2008 only 71000 miles and have had a couple repairs that I'm not sure is adequate for the amount of miles I have on it. Thermostat, bushings, muffler. And next is water pump. Other than that it's a good car. Starts up right away in cold temps, good on gas and drives smooth.

- Teresa K

Old car with many problems but it's a good little car

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Transmission stickers, door locks don't work right, fresh air pump knocks. Rides nice though right front tire valve don't work anymore. The window up and down button sticks and makes a clicking noise. Can't take it through a automated car wash or one of the lower spark plugs goes bad

- Amanda S

Good diagnostic display in the car

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Not many problems. Haven't owned it long. Seems to run fine. Maybe a tire issue but like I said I haven't owned it long. Have had to do the brakes all the way around but that is to be expected hopefully that will stay the same in the future. I this point I would buy this car again

- Pam A

Nice reliable car that drives well throughout the whole year.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The 08 Chevy Impala is Very reliable, it has a big trunk which is good for people who carry a lot of things on them or for trips and moving things from one place to another, Very rarely has the car ever given me any issues in the 10 years I owned. Had a great run with this car.

- Peter B

If You Have a Chevy Impala

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I really like my car, it's clean and drive smooth, it's a very nice car, it's good on gas and I bought it from someone so for maintenance and repairs are minimal, making sure oil is changed and I will need tires soon. It's very roomy and gets me around for my everyday commute

- Julia C

A few problems with the impala.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

It needs wheel alignment, I believe new rotors because it shakes when I am braking. Is not the best on gas and I do not love leather seats. Wish it had remote start and also my lock button does not work for all of the doors. It is hard to find uses tires for this car as well.

- A S

The Chevy impala at it is best.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Spacious interior and spacious trunk areas, smooth riding, quiet, easy to handle, easy to park, love the color, body not too big, seats up to five comfortably, popular name brand car, electronic windows, doors and seats, up-to-date radio, maintenance upkeep is not expensive.

- Marcella E

Nothing interesting it is pretty roomy.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I have had to change the gas pedal sensor several times. Currently it won't start before that it would only start every now and then. The air makes a strange sound. I don't recommend this vehicle at all. It's been nothing but trouble for us. Parts on it are not cheap :(

- Autumn M

It is a comfortable car that rides nice and gets good gas mileage. (For a 2008)

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

It is a comfortable car that rides nice. I've had very limited issues with it. Currently it is leaking some oil, so I sometimes have to add oil in between oil changes. There is adequate room for myself and another person and plenty of trunk room for what I need to do.

- Julie P

Chevrolet Impala 2008 reliability

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My 2008 Chevrolet Impala is extremely reliable. I've had it since 2013. I've driven it all over. I really do rack up the miles on it and it is in amazing condition still. I keep up with my oil changes and maintain it whenever it needs. I highly recommend this vehicle.

- Amanda E

Very comfortable land boat

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My Impala is super comfy, but is low. I worry about going over bumps. Radio is ok, has an aux port. Brakes are pretty good. Car feels like a boat and is roomy. Trunk is huge. It has remote locks and a panic button. You have to press hard, so it won't go off in a bag.

- Indigo F

Great car!! A must buy. You won't be disappointed

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

My car is decent on gas. It gives alerts when the tire pressure is low, when it needs oil and when a door is ajar. Another feature I like is the driver side door won't lock if the keys are left in the ignition (while the car is off). It's just an all around good car

- Ariel W

I really love the gas I use. It not expensive as regular gas. It's not loud.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I don't have any problems with it. It's great on gas using e85. Sometimes it's not too great driving in the city. It's great on the highway. I have had a value put in and also a muffler since the two years I have owned the car. I do need new struts put on the back.

- Julia D

I like driving the car. It has lots of room for my children in the backseat.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The only problem I have is that at times it feels like it tries to stop accelerating. It will start shaking when it does this and you have to let off the gas to go again. The car has been very reliable other than this problem. I am not scared to go anywhere in it.

- Samantha M

Great sunroof and sound system

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

It is a 4 door automatic. Air and heat both work. Sunroof that works and opens in three positions. Never been in an accident. 102,000 miles. New brakes, plug, wires, tires, oil filter and oil. Asking price is 1800.00 but willing to discuss all reasonable offers.

- Sharon V

Great midsize sedan - low maintenance, comfortable and reliable!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

This car has had almost no maintenance issues, and I have had it for 9 years. I love the v6 engine, and the comfort and reliability. I am not worried about constantly taking it in for repairs. It has been a great car, and I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

- Katie P

Safe and reliable vehicle. Great family car.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I love the car. It has a spacious interior, it rides quiet and has a lot of room inside and in the trunk. It is a reliable vehicle. The car is very safe and dependable. I feel safe whenever I am driving and have peace of mind whenever I am driving the vehicle.

- Theresa S

Nice looking car, bad performance

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

The look of the car is very nice, which is unfortunately probably the best part about it. The brakes are constantly acting up and the heating does not work. It often has something new wrong with it, once we get one issue fixed another one pops up soon after

- Maria G

Great find shame it's gone

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Great reliable cars shame it is being discontinued finding a used one is worth it. One issue is the flappers for the ac can break and make an annoying clicking noise for about 1 min upon start and shut off of car. Doesn't hurt anything just an annoyance

- Stephanie G

2008 Chevy impala is more than just a car !

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

Runs great and gets me places I need to be without any problems. No matter the mileage it never disappoints. Great on gas! About $20-$25 lasts me almost 2 weeks. Lots of leg space and room to stretch when needed. Much recommended for small road trips.

- Jasmine C

One of the best most reliable comfortable vehicle have ever had.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

I have been extremely satisfied with my Chevrolet Impala. Strong engine, lots of interior room, comfortable ride, and very reliable. It is also very easy on gas. I would highly recommended it for anyone who's looking for great reliable transportation.

- Peter M

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS

An inexpensive sedan, that is good for a family of four to travel around town or to go on vacation. Plenty of trunk space for luggage. Repairs are inexpensive. Interior has a luxury feel. Small electrical components do however go out after some time.
