Chevrolet impala lt: the power sedan.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

The car runs well for a long time, so the life quality is great! Gas mileage is something I always want the best of, but it does fairly well even compared to some newer models. Nothing beats the spacious interior and-better yet- the trunk has enough room for even the longest road trips! The digital dashboard features are much more useful than I originally expected and can help a lot, like showing me the pressure in each of my tires or even the oil life. The car does seem to have some issues with the actuator(s); a couple have 'gone bad' and create an awful knocking sound. It is temporary, but starts up at certain times. It is more an annoyance than anything else. The car can handle a lot from hot summer days to far below zero temperatures. The gas tank easily hold 16 gal, which is nice to not fill up so often. The e85 flex fuel alternative is a great sustainability mark! That on top of the upper tier gas mileage really sells me from an environmental standpoint. Electric seat adjustment allows for that perfect, custom fit to give you a comfortable drive. The armrest compartment provides room for your sunglasses and more. It even flips up to serve as the back of a sixth seat- with an extra seatbelt, of course. The 'seat' converts into a pair of cup holders in two different sizes to save you frustration. The back middle seat also reveals a pair of cup holders, though this does remove the option if there are three people in the rear. There is no shortage of power adapter ports! Everyone will be able to charge their devices with two in front and one in back. It is all-around a stellar choice sedan for a single adult or a small family.

Chevy Impala, a great car all around.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

My Chevrolet Impala LT is a wonderful car. It is very comfortable and roomy, even on long trips. The trunk is huge, so there is plenty of space for luggage, groceries, coolers and all of the belongings you want to take along with you. I purchased my Impala new and have never had any problems with it. There were a couple of recalls on it but very small issues that were easily corrected at the dealership. I never had any performance issues. It is a very well-built, safe vehicle that responds quickly. I am amazed at the pick-up when I accelerate even now, as an older model. I am also impressed with its reliability. This car has never failed me. I turn the key and it is ready to go. I like the dash information about gas mileage, oil life left and tire pressures. I would definitely buy another Impala.

- Lynne K

It's a lot of fun to take on road trips and late night drives!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

My car drives very smooth but it does has a lot of blind spots like when you're about to turn onto a road you have to double/triple check because you sometimes can't see what's in front of you. I don't know what to call it but it's thick plastic between your door windows and the big window. But other than that it's great! It very comfortable, you can fit 5 people in the car. I love my cars sunroof! I think that's my favorite thing about it! But it does has a really nice big trunk as well!

- Chelsea Y

Ideal car for individuals/ families

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Not ideal for short-legged drivers. The steering wheel is way to close for comfort. You can change ac/heating on each side. Aux cord option available also. Plenty of cup holders, very roomy. The trunk is actually a lot bigger than it looks so it's great for traveling and going shopping. Great on gas! I can travel from southern ky to northern Indiana on $30 with gas left over. Ideal car for families, couples, and self.

Chevy impala 2008. Clicking??

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

there is a problem with the fan motor and the CD scanner. The sensor in the fan motor clicks even when the car is not in use, it doesn't allow ac usage or heat until it stops clicking, and the CD scanner eventually wears out and will tell you there is a disk stuck in there even if there isn't. The seats are very comfy though, and adjustable. The backseat is roomy and allows lots of space for 3 back passengers.

- Sam R

Frequent repairs that once your warranty expires, you're stuck fitting the bill!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

I purchased the car brand new and it began making this awful knocking sound. It turned out to be the actuators which help regulate the ac. There are 5 or 6 and when I would get one fixed another one would go out and begin making the same noise. The window bands would snap every year and I would have to replace them or my windows wouldn't go up. Terrible experience with the Impala!

- Lorena T

2008 Chevy Impala, Reliable!!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Bought the vehicle with about 27k miles. Have put almost 20k and had very few problems. The Impala has been very reliable and a nice ride. Need something reliable with our 1 year old son. Car is a decent size. Still plenty of legroom even with a car seat in the back. Has all standard features with A/C, power locks and power windows.

- Josh R

Wood grain interior and tan and brown vinyl.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

The only problem I have encountered with this vehicle so far is a ticking noise that comes from the ac on the passenger side. Also a problem with the gas tank sensor that makes the check engine light come on. But other than that this is a wonderful car to have just need to fix those two minor problems.

- Jennifer G

My 2008 Chevy Impala is pretty reliable

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

My car has power windows doors and seats. It has been pretty reliable since I purchased it in 2017. At the present time it has minor issues power doors and seats are not working cigarette lighter isn't working. I cannot charge my phone when needed. Need new tires part has to be replaced on gas tank.

- Shawn M

The car is very efficient and very roomy. Lots of leg space and even trunk space

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Reliable up to about 100,000 miles and then everything seems to be breaking down. Everything from shocks, sensors, lights, cables, and even dash lights are burning out. I would expect a car to last longer with less issues, but it seems a bit early for everything on the car to be breaking.

- Josh P

Silver Chevy Impala, still pretty after all these years!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

It's been a great car. No major problems. I don't put a lot of miles on it, but has held up well. Still looks good too. Has a small spot of rust on front left fender, by mud flap. Can probably be due to winter weather in our area. Doesn't use much gas, about 30 mph even at 11 years old.

- Linda K

Most Long lasting and reliable car

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Had Great performance. Very good on gas. They are long lasting vehicles. And very easy repairs. Cheap overall but good vehicles. I would give it a good review and recommend these vehicles. Nice design compact car good for families with kids. Has a lot of room inside of the vehicles

- Barbara A

Great reliable car for a young family or someone who need a good daily driver.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

No major mechanical issues other than regular maintenance that should be performed anyway. Comfortable to ride in. Lots of room for kids and car seats in the back and tons of trunk space. Most reliable car we have owned to date. Love that it has XM radio and aux cord capability.

- Megan D

GREAT CAR! MOST CARS DON'T HOLD UP 10 YEARS BUT THIS ONE DOES!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

My impala drives great, and really holds up for a 10 year old car. The only problem that I have with it is the constant clicking noise that comes from my dashboard. I can't seem to get that to stop. But other than that awesome car. The seats are cloth so I'm always comfortable.

- Jay A

An interesting detail of this vehicle, is sturdiness and the comfort of space

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Very reliable sturdy vehicle. Has great gas mileage. Minimal malfunctioning equipment. I use this as a daily driver and have a long commute to work. That being said, I typically fill up for gas around once every 4-5 days. This is great because it saves me a ton of money on gas

- Michael S

Smokey as the Chevy Impala

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

I honestly think my transmission trying to go out but overall it's an amazing car. It also gives good mileage. Also, the lock on the passenger side doesn't lock have to lock by hand. The key itself is messed up. I have a new battery in it and it's still not working correctly.

- Natasha P

Good quality vehicle for price.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Windshield wipers arm went out recently then when fixed the fuse for the wiper fluid blew. No other problems yet. Comfortable and roomy. Sound System kind of seems to be going out towards the front half recently. Low plastic front bumper. Can seat six people. Large trunk.

- Anna M

Chevrolet Impala is an electrical mess

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

There are several electrical problems throughout the car. The actuator ticks like a bomb when we turn off the car, the key gets stuck in the ignition and the one of our headlights keeps going out. The car also drifts backwards when sitting at a light if we're on a hill.

- Jennifer L

Gas mileage is the best of this car.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Certain parts are repeat replaced. Very annoying. There's really not enough leg room for tall people. It is a older model and I am sure newer impalas are probably better built. It does drive well and still gets pretty good gas mileage. Overall it's been an alright car.

- Kim H

Comfortable family car with style.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Very comfortable. Not too big in size. Fits 5 passengers. Great on gas mileage. Actuators go out, common problem. Inexpensive repairs and maintenance. I honestly like the car a lot. My family likes the car and we take it on road trips and on every day adventures.

- Deborah L

Very nice ride in smoothness.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

The Impala not only looks classy(mine is black) but also rides very nicely..very smooth. The pick up is great and have had very little troubles. One thing was the door locks in the back. They won't unlock after awhile of being used. Pretty expensive to replace.

- Lisa K

The overall performance of the Chevrolet impala

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

All the cars door locks, the driver side seat belt all gave out. The car also has transmission problems, though it has been replaced the car is slow to take off at times when I come to a stop at stoplights and in traffic. It is a good running car overall.

- Kim B

I love my impala here's why

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

- Patricia C

Great car at a great value. I will buy another!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

This is a quality car I have been driving for 8 years now. I have had very minimal issues with over the years. It currently has 165,000 miles on it. Still runs good. The exterior is showing signs that it's going to really show the rust over the next year.

- Chad S

Good and the bad. Engine issues, but great comfort.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Transmission issues. Auto door lock issues. Tie rods go quickly. Drives smooth. Great gas mileage. Interior is nice. Very good electronics for a 2008. XM radio, CD player.Auxiliary cord option. Cruise control. Power steering. Plenty of room in the trunk.

- Jimmy A

Has electric issues but all in all a good vehicle.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

My car has certain electrical issues that causes it to take longer to start or even not start at all, it also has trouble turning when it rains. All issues aside it is a good sturdy vehicle and I would strongly recommend it to anyone for their first car!

- Brennan B
