Smooth ride, powerful engine.

Love how smooth my car rides and decent on gas considering the larger sized engine. Car does seem to burn through oil more than other cars I have owned but overall this car has been very good to me. Easy to fix smaller issues myself and parts are reasonably priced. Tires for this model are pretty expensive and the evap canister seems to go bad kind of quick but luckily it is an easy fix. Car gets about 25 mpg on highway and a little less when driving in town. I would highly recommend this make and model car, just be aware that certain aspects of maintaining vehicle can be pretty pricey.

My car has great gas mileage.

My impala has great gas mileage. It is very classy looking and very roomy. I love taking it for long trips because it's so roomy and just runs fantastic. I have had this car for over a year and have not had any problems with it. Besides needing tires and oil change. I know that in the future I will purchase another impala. I would love to have the Chevy impala ss. It is a fast and very sharp looking car. I also love the OnStar and the easy reach to my controls on my steering wheel. There's more better car than a Chevy impala.

- Lisa J

Very comfortable and reliable!

Very low-maintenance, the only true problem I have has with it is in regards to the locking mechanisms on the front passenger door�the lock does not move upon clicking the bottom either on the key fob or within the car itself, so I have to reach over manually to unlock it when someone is in the car with me. This is quite costly to fix. In terms of comfort, I love it. The seats are very comfy and the car is spacious (including for someone who is tall, like me). Of course, I like the auxiliary cord feature, as well!

- Kate M

The chain reaction on my car.

Well I do like the way it handles the curves. Since it just required a major overhaul on the breaks. So, as I was driving up my street, I was suddenly in distress, my car was grinding up the hill so I turned it around to come home and black smoke came up. So what happened? The parking brake locked up and broke apart, the back brake shoes lost traction, the it burned off on one tire. I ruined the tire, the parking break and the break shoes in a chain reaction like a week ago.

- Lynda H

It is a very affordable luxury car,

My 2009 Chevy impala is one of the nicest vehicle I have owned. It is very reliable and haven't had to many issues just normal maintenance. It is a very comfortable car to drive and handles very well on the highway. Had a recall but took to the shop and had it taken care of in a timely manner. Have been really satisfied with my vehicle and would recommend to anyone looking for a nice reasonably priced vehicle to check the Chevrolet dealer for an impala.

Used Impala police cruisers rock!

I love this car. My Impala is a used 9c1 police package, flex fuel vehicle from somewhere in Ohio. The acceleration and handling are superb. Repair and maintenance costs are reasonable, too. The vinyl back seats and rubber floors are perfect for dealing with the messy combination of toddlers and fast food. I also really appreciate the extra deer protection the sestina push bumper provides. I could take or leave the spotlight, though.

- Sean A

Recalls unknown - Impala!

My vehicle is wonderful and I love the seat heaters, but it seems like all the electrical things in the car short out or have some issue that stops them from working. There is a factor of unreliability to the car - mine has stopped on the highway once, with no warning. Manufacturer's recalls seem to be commonplace with this car and I feel nervous about driving it - what if there were a recall I didn't know about?

- Charlotte H

Good car, easy to drive, does well.

Good car, blower actuators go bad one at a time which is noisy. Rides pretty nice, roomy interior and trunk. Easy to use stereo system. Have taken on long trips, once overheated and had to replace a part, but drive a lot and usually does well. Have put very many miles on with ease. Newer models are not as comfortable and ergonomic unfortunately. Would like newer models to be similar and they are nothing alike.

- Heather P

Very comfortable and almost maintenance free!

My impala is a beautiful metallic gray. Cloth interior, very comfortable. It handles great and is also very good on gasoline mileage. Also almost maintenance free. Overall a great car! The electric windows have been sort of a problem I had to replace both windows on the left side other than that my only expense has been a new battery and a new set of tires. Overall I am completely happy with this car.

- Charles C

A used well built vehicle with one owner is worth a look!

2009 Chevrolet Impala used, one owner 40, 000 miles, in pristine condition. Paid 9, 000 in 2015. Very comfortable and a good ride. The one problem was 2 sensors went out and the cost was approx. $1, 000. Now in 2018 the car has 60, 000 miles, the interior is light gray and has been well taken care of. In looking for a good used car the best choice is a one owner that took good care of my next car.

- Ginny E

The Impala everything you want and Need for your family's safety and comfort!

My Impala is the best car I have ever owned! It's very roomy! I have a family of 5 and we fit comfortably. Gas mileage is reasonable. Driving back and forth to work(city driving) I fill my tank every 2 weeks. Driving on freeway I get over 400 miles on a full tank of gas. Drives well in the Michigan winter's. Safety crash tests have shown that the Impala has a higher passenger survival rate.

- Beverly H

It is a very attractive car in the summer and tons of fun on a clear open road.

Nice performance for a ss, but none for it is transmission problems and you cannot drive a car like this in the winter because it is front wheel drive and power can put you in a accident with so much power behind the engine that causes the front tires to not be enough balance for the back tire that could have a reoccurring spin if the front tires do not have a complete and accurate stop.

- Asia B

I have had this car for several years and enjoy it very much!

I really enjoy my Impala. It gets good gas mileage, comfortable to ride in and is spacious for people riding with me. One bonus is the truck is very roomy, so you are able to fit quite a few things in there. Even with it a stock model, it has several nice features, one of my favorites is the speakers in it. Overall, it is a good, safe, reliable car that I would look into buying again.

- David C

Overview of Chevy Impala's dependability.

My 09 Impala rides smoothly and has not had a lot of major issues. The headlights have been replaced a few times in the past 3 years. The vehicle has decent gas mileage to get me to point A to point B. The seats could be more comfortable and if you have kids do not buy the car with light creme seats like I did. Overall the Impala is a dependable vehicle and I do not regret buying one.

- Cheyenne F

A simple car with an overall elegant feel.

This is a very reliable car. It has a comfortable setup, and lots of room in the back, as well as a trunk that is surprisingly huge. The only problem I have ever had with it is twice the fan in the dash does not seal and it makes a thumping noise-this was expensive to fix, I am hoping i'll never have to deal with that again. It is a simple car but it has a luxurious to feel to it.

- Whitney M

My car sucks, but it is all I have.

Tick sound coming from foot area of the front of the car Doors do not lock or unlock unless the driver’s door is unlocked by key and the button is pushed on the inside for the other doors No cup holders in the back Gear shift in an odd place (behind the steering wheel) Speakers in the car were blown out due to an over pumped tire being stored in the trunk.

- Gary L

Although my black sedan is a common make and model, I think it is very sleek.

I feel very comfortable driving my vehicle. Aside from small recall fixes and troubles after 125, 000 miles, there really has not been much wrong with it, which I appreciate. Based on where I live, it is heavy and sturdy enough for me to drive around in harsh winters with blizzard conditions, but yet it does not feel like I am driving this huge boat around.

- Rachel P

This car has had some deficiencies but in the long run, was a good car.

Had to spend around $2, 000 for work done on the transmission. The electronic locks work sometime and sometime they do not. Also, had to replace the tires at 30k miles even though I had them rotated every time I had the oil changed. The seats are not comfortable at all. Other, than that, the car was good on gas mileage and I have enjoyed driving it.

- Leslie G

Funky fuel sensor in my Impala.

The gravel dust clogs up the fuel sensor which makes it really hard for me to pump gas into the car. The sensor clicks off the gas pump unless I pump it really slow. In cold weather, this is a pain. The car itself is reliable and comfortable for the entire family. The moonroof is a nice feature. The trunk is spacious. It handles well in all weather.

- Brooke O

The gas does not hold well.

The 2009 Chevy impala is a great car. It is very reliable, and has very comfortable seats. Not only is it reliable, but it also looks nice. The features of this car include a nice radio, electric windows, and seat warmers. The only complaint I have is the gas. I always have to fill my tank up because it does not hold gas very well.

- Megan W

The car is a great working car I would not trade it for anything if it can be fixed.

My car is a super reliable car however when it acts up such as when it breaks down it always happens when I have no money. Other than that I love my car. It has been with me for over a year now. So yes it is a superb car but it has accumulated a bunch of miles on it so all I use it for is to go straight to work and straight home.

- Hannah S

Great car for everyday errands as well as day trips.

We are having a problem with the ac / heater actuator. It gets pretty good gas mileage for the size of the vehicle. It is comfortable to drive. I like the space in the vehicle. We also do you have a problem with the traction control feature. I would not be adverse to buying a newer model Impala with more technology features.

- Monica K

It is purple color is a little unique.

The body style is nice to look a. The interior and trunk are roomy. I am starting to have mechanical issues; it does not like to stay started first thing in the morning. After that it runs fine. I do experience a lug when going up hills. I am also due for front brake replacement (I had the rear brakes replaced 2 years ago).

- Jacob H

Used 09 Impala, wonderful after 200, 000 miles.

I love my car. It was bought used within the last 90 days and has well over 200, 000 miles on it. The car is still in awesome shape, it runs like a champ! Everything works on it with the exception of the drivers side seat, its stuck, but that's a small thing. I will definitely stick with Chevrolet when I decide to upgrade.

- Little R

Great smooth riding car. Any car can have difficulties.

I liked the car at first it was a smooth ride. After having it a couple months it would say the car was hot. Changed the thermostat and fixed it. After that it began making a clicking noise that it still makes today. Something to do with the air conditioner. All in all its a good car. With any car there will be difficulty.

- Savanna H

Chevy Impala are excellent cars, I enjoy the sunroof and all the features it has.

A problem that I have been having is, when I turn the heater or air conditioner on oh, there's a loud clicking noise, I have also noticed a gentleman had the same kind of car at my work, and one day I walked by and it was doing the same thing, so even when you turn the car off it will still continue for a while.

- Andrea B

My car is a very strong and trustworthy car engine never has any real problems.

Well to start off it's a gas, water, and oil eater, it also has a lot of other small problems that turn into big problems later on. But on the other hand it is somewhat reliable, window motors are strong and never go out, windshield wipers may begin to scratch the glass and stop working, no real engine problems.

- Brandon H

Great performing vehicle!

I haven't had many problems with my car. It drives great, accelerates quickly and drives smoothly but quietly. The only issue I really notice is during the winter time. Beings smaller and lighter car, or tends to slide more easily on slippery conditions, making the need for snow tires and traction controls must!

- Breanna G

It is very reliable and a comfortable family vehicle.

I love this car. It has spacious front seats and enough leg room in the back seats. It comfortably seats a carseat in the middle seat. I have only had problems with the steering column. This car gets great gas mileage and has a very large tank. I have a very basic model and it have very minimal feature.

- Madison J

A way for change in driving.

It seems to be useful in the summer. Over this summer we were thinking about a theme. We have one every year, we wanted to work on culture. High achieving great facilities and good community support. But do we do a good job of celebrating that? It as a way to bring us all together to tell our story.

- Tony W

All around good family car.

Fairly reliable car. Gets through snow very well. Wheel bearings seem to go quickly. Otherwise normal maintenance as would be expected. Nice to drive. Good family car. Good gas mileage. CD player and auxiliary port. Sun and moon roof. Comfortable seating. Heated front seats. All around like the car.

- Jacob B

My current vehicle is very spacious and the interior design is very nice.

I don't really like my current vehicle. Its big and bulky. I'd like to have something smaller. It has good horsepower and drives great. It would be a good family car because its really spacious. The color is silver and black. It's in really good shape and the interior is in really good condition.

- Cheyenne J

It is spacey and has good gas mileage. Gives warning when car needs some help.

It is fairly spacey for a car, I can fit my kids (car seat and booster) in the back no problem. It has performed very well for us and gets good gas mileage. It normally gives a warning or something if there is something that is wrong or needs fixed in the car, such as air in the tires, etc.

- Kelly T

Consistently needs maintenance but is a good family car

The electronic vehicle regular maintenance alerts are annoying and when one issue happens it affect the whole vehicles performance such as traction control maintenance due will cause the engine power to be reduced and sometimes will lock the steering wheel which is not safe while driving.

- Jen F

It is a wonderful, delightful car. I would tell others about it all the time.

Has no problems. The car runs great and is a good vehicle and reliable to use I would tell others to get this car. It is a wonderful, delightful and enjoyable car. I think everyone should check out Impala 2009 it is totally awesome. Cheap and affordable. Good on gas and good on repairs.

- John W

Great car, lots of space, comfortable.

Bought this as a replacement for a Dodge intrepid and was so glad I did. Easy to drive, ergonomic, more comfortable to drive and sit in than newer vehicles. A few pretty consistent issues but for the most part a great car. Large trunk and interior. Can be a little snug with car seats.

- Heather P

It is very spacious inside yet still looks rather compact from the outside.

It is spacious, dependable as I use it to travel a lot for my kids sporting events. The gas is okay, it could be more fuel efficient, kind of a gas guzzler when taking short trips but on long hauls it is good. The lights at night are also a little dim, hard to see on a dark highway.

- Anna L

2009 Chevrolet Impala- a great family car.

I love this car. It is reliable and stylish. This particular year all the vehicles have a rotor issue. The rotor warps and causes the car to shake when the brakes are used frequently. The seats are not super comfortable on long trips. The backseat is roomy and it has a large trunk.

- Angela L

Great car, reliable and dependable. My next car will be the same make and model.

My car has great performance. It's very reliable in getting me to a from where I need to get to. It came with nice interior and very comfortable seats. Came with a nice stereo system and also a AUX port for music. Most the problems I have had have been just normal wear and tear.

- Michael H

Good reliable car. Good for anyone.

I like it. I've only had it a month but its been reliable. No problems heat works well comfortable to drive. Performance is good. Huge trunk space. Radio sounds good. Gonna upgrade tires soon but stock rims and tires look nice as well. Heard it's a good long lasting vehicle.

- Sarah M

I inherited it from my mom who didn't drive, so it only has 50,000 miles.

It is very comfortable and has been very reliable. It does pretty good on gas. I have a problem with a thumping noise in the dash, I think it is called an actuator. I wish it had a back wipers. I also would like more compartments and cubbies for sunglasses, CDs, and drinks.

- Linda C

The wear and tear of an American make vehicle.

My car has a lot of space and is great on gas. My car is reliable and its performance rate is a 7. My car is nine years old and still is great for travel. The con is that there is often problems with the air and heat system. I replace parts three times at the Chevy dealer.

- Cadence A

Price is always a concern for me.

Its good and reliable and fits my budget. I have had no problems with this car. It was a great value and really good on gas and has good warranty and oil change and is maintaining great on all parts of the vehicle and good customer service and the warranty is substantial.

- Darlene W

Impala, great day to day vehicle.

Love the roominess. Tire sensor system is helpful. Actuator gears has broken twice though and is pain to change. Great car as long as you don't run out of funds to keep up with routine maintenance. I have had this car since 2010 and not many major things need to be fixed.

- Bobby F

2009 ride to shine. Putting reverse into drive.

Ride smooth, warranty coverage no matter who owned the vehicle., products to fix car reasonable, gm mechanic experts on fixing car, design of car is a conversation piece, fun to drive, modern technology allowed on most vehicles, fair pricing and value depreciate slowly.

- Dawn W

Traction of the tires. It has a awesome sunroof, and AUX connection as well.

The sensors on the module where the speedometer, and all the other info about the car sensor is broken. An sometimes the gear shifter gets stuck. And just recently the driver window motor is out. And the tires need to be rotated. But other than that everything is good.

- Kristen Y

09 Chevy Impala, makes me love Chevrolets even more!

I love my car. I recently bought it, used of course, but even with 10 years on her he is still a wonderful car. The only issues I have are small mechanical ones that are expected when you buy a used car. I'll be purchasing another Chevy when I upgrade in a few months.

- Sandra B

I have never had a problem, love my car.

I love my car drives great. I take my kids back and forth to school and doctors appointments and I have never had a problem. Right now I do not have anything wrong with it and hope I never do have a problem. A lot of room for my kids. I would tell anyone to get one.

- Shea K

The car is very spacious and good on gas.

It makes a clicking noise every time to turn off the ac, the car or even when I start the car. My check engine light is on although there’s nothing wrong with the engine. The car is good on gas. It is spacious. The trunk is huge with us good for grocery shopping.

- Ken Ya L

Love my Impala have owned two and likely a third soon!

No real problems. Now have problem with traction. It catches every now and then. I also have a seatbelt light on all the time. Its pretty good on mileage comfortable to ride in and drive. It's the second car we have had and I will more than likely purchase a third.

- Camilla V

As I had mentioned, it was bought used and I have not had it very long.

Just bought it used a few months ago, so really no history. Reliable transportation; handles well; good gas mileage; comfortable; I like it ok; really do not know what else to say since I haven't had it that long; just adding characters to reach the 250 required.

- Paul A

The car from hell and I wish it were still there.

It sounds like a machine gun firing when you change the air duct flow, the power locks do not always work properly, the passenger door does not feel like it closes properly. In other words, this is probably the biggest piece of junk I have ever owned in my life.

- Richard D

Turn signal and an interesting detail.

What I like most is how nice it drives on the highway and how well it accelerates. One thing I would change about it would be it is turn signal sound, it is not very prominent and it I do not make a full turn I do not hear it clicking still and then I feel bad.

- Ashley H

An very spacy vehicle for all your needs.

I love the car I have it is a Chevrolet Impala 2009. . I love how much room there is in the car, especially in the trunk very spacey. I enjoy having the option to have an AUX cord in it. The seats are comfortable as well. The interior design I liked very much.

- Erica M

It has great trunk space.

I haven't had any problems with this car since I got it. It is very comfortable. It has a good amount of space in the front and in the back. It is an ok car if you have someone y'all riding with you. There’s is really good trunk space. It runs very quietly.

- Dimples😘 D

It only takes about 35 dollars to fill up.

I like the fact that it can get us around when needed. I hate that fact its has a thumping sound. I hate the facts it's always a problem with something under the hood. I love the fact that the a. C still works. I love the fact that the car still push through.

- Kimberly N

Good but a pain could be better.

To may issues with recall problems, recall on airbag for passengers side that also goes to driver side and will not fix. Window switches that break, shifter problems, fuel mileage from summer to winter is huge difference. Just some minor but expensive fixes.

- Dawn N

Dependability and style in an economical car.

The 2009 Impala has been a great car. Low maintenance costs, good fuel economy, and very dependable. I change oil on a regular basis and get it maintained at the recommended levels, based on mileage. The ride is great and it is a great, comfortable ride.

- Mike R

A vehicle that performs excellent.

Very reliable car. Rarely has any issues. Great for road trips. The miles per gallon is also great. This car is a workhorse. I would recommend this car to anyone. You can also find this year and model at a good price these days, so you cannot go wrong.

- Chris F

When driving my car you cannot remove the key unless you hit it pacific button.

I had to buy this vehicle because I need a car asap it has a lot of issues with this the motor mount is bent and he's brakes rotors pads something to do with tie rod I need some work but overall it still runs really well and I still take care of it.

- Brandy H

It is reliable. And I have a national warranty that is renewable every 2 years.

Good performance, engine runs smooth. Pretty good on gas. Does not run hot. It is a reliable vehicle. It has a sporty look. I love the leather interior and the sun rooftop. It also has the OnStar feature for navigation and hands free calling.

- Lorraine S

It is dependable, has a larger trunk and a smooth ride.

It is an okay car. Do not get me wrong, I am very thankful that I have a vehicle but I feel like for an ‘09 it could've now na little more “up to date”. One automatic window, no gas light or miles until empty just “fuel level low”.

- Sadie S

Spends a lot of time at garage

When I first bought it I really like It's styling and performance. Later on it started to have a lot of mechanical issues ie. brakes, engine light coming on, suspension issues. So I will be looking at different car next time I buy one

- Paul H

Dependable is the word I use to best describe this car.

Very reliable, good mileage, dependable and easy to maintain. The car performs well and with the recommended maintenance, this car will last a very long time. Great buy, as I believe all Chevrolet products are well designed to last.

- Mike R

It stays on the road well. Handles well, and holds lots of stuff.

Like the way it drives, gas mileage is good, but could be better. Have had more trouble with the tire sensor system and engine light coming on than I had with my previous car which was the same make and model, but earlier year.

- Linda G

It's reliable, smooth and safe vehicle you can feel confident in putting your loved ones inside.

I like the spacious trunk that we have. It meets all of our needs as well as drives smoothly. It's been a great car. I wish it had more compartments. It's extremely basic and I never seem to have a place to put anything down.

- Bethany S

Wouldn't buy this vehicle

I don't care for the quality of the vehicle. The back seat has very little leg room. It's difficult to get in and out of the vehicle. The doors are very heavy and do not stay open unless you are able to get them fully open.

- Dawn L

It is reliable and comfortable. The interior is spacious. The systems work well. My one complaint is that the message system is placed where the odometer reading is given so that if there is any kind of message you can't see the odometer reading.

I believe that my Chevy Impala is a good car with some luxury features and that if I take good care of it, it will last me a long time. Also, because it is an Impala, I named it Vlad. That's right--Vlad the Impala.

- Susan W

I guess I would say that the most important thing that I would like others to know about my car, is that it fits my style.

I really like our Impala. It is a very dependable car. I like that we have a lot of room in the rear. I like the car and design of the car. I can't really say that there is anything that I dislike about the car.

- Chris R

Take care of it and it will take care of you.

I really cannot complain. I was a Ford person no matter what, but my impala has been a great car for me. Little to no repairs, but I do take care of it and I think that is why there have been. Few repairs.

- Joyce T

the leg room is very comfortable

car is easy to access for a handicapped person, good on gas and I have had no major mechanical issues. only complaint is the windshield always gets dirty on the inside no matter how often it's cleaned

- carol W

One interesting detail of this car is how easily it drives and breaks.

This vehicle is incredibly reliable. I love how nicely it drives for being almost 10 years old. I have never had any major problems with this car other than the occasional repair of some engine parts.

- Lauren W

It is well maintained and well cared for. It is in good condition.

The things I like about my car is it is reliable & dependable transportation. It is has good gas mileage. The thing I hate about it is that it sits too low on the ground & hard to see other vehicles.

- Richard P

It's heavy and a bigger vehicle so I feel safer in this car.

It is a good running vehicle, good sized engine (V6), and being a firefighter I need a reliable car. I like how it handled in the snow, it's heavy and it has a wide stance to get through heavy snow.

- Vince J

It is very good on gas. Has lots of storage area in the trunk and fits 5 people comfortably.

This has been a very very good car for me. I the only complaint I have is that the defroster in my back window has gone out, otherwise very mechanically sound and has run great for 7 years for me.

- Mindy S

If you are short, it will be hard to turn around to verify nothing is coming since the headrests are so high. You can use the mirrors, but always taught to double check. Hard to do in this car.

Dislike the seat controls. Can never find the best setting. Like it's a basic car. Like has get up and go. Dislike the visors do not go all the way to the outer edges so you get blinded by the sun.

- Brenda G

Why I love my Chevy Impala.

I absolutely love my Impala. It is a beautiful metallic slate gray. It drives and handles great. It is probably one of the most comfortable cars I have ever ridden in. The stereo is just the best!

- Charles J

Its pretty good on gas and the parts are relatively inexpensive.

I would not say it has problems to speak of. I wish it had a lighted vanity mirror and/or a light on the rearview mirror so I can check my makeup when it's dark out (not while driving of course).

- Deborah K

It is very comfortable to ride in.

It is nice and comfortable to ride in and the trunk is very large. I enjoy the sunroof and remote start and leather seats. It is now starting to have issues I have a lot of miles on the vehicle.

- Kathy G

I feel very comfortable and safe. American made. Good on gas.

I like the fact that it is an American made car. It is great condition and drives nice. It is also a nice looking car. I don't like that it doesn't have a lot of upgrades because it is old.

- nancy T

It has great gas mileage for the drive I do.

Heated leather seats. Remote start. Sunroof and ac. Its sporty. Sharp looking. But have issues with electrical and actuators for fresh door louvers and not being able to get it out of park.

- Dawn N

There is plenty of room both inside and in the trunk

Family had Impala when I was a kid. Bought it 18 months ago after wreck. Was not really considering another one but it was a BARGAIN at CarMax. LOVE it - roomy, ok gas mileage, looks great

- Frances D

It's a great family car. Big enough for 2 kids, and a good size trunk.

A very simple, efficient, family sedan. I have owned it for 4 years and 40k miles, and it has been a wonderful car. Aside from needing tires and brakes, it has been incredibly reliable.

- Matt E

Good car. I had my car for 9 years and no major problems with it.

It has heated seats which is great in the colder months. It has a sunroof which is nice. It also has remote starting which is wonderful. It gets pretty good gas mileage and runs good.

- Laurie B

It handles well on ice and wet roads.

It's dependable and I feel safe in it. It handles well. It's downfall is that it has too many blind spots. You have to be very aware and have to count on looking multiple times.

- alice F

Even after 10 years years and some needed TLC, this vehicle runs beautifully.

I'm a fan of the Chevrolet brand. I bought my car used. I would've loved for everything to be in top order, locks dont work properly, however she runs beautifully. And she's blue.

- Antoinette L

That there have been very many recalls with Chevrolet vehicles

I like my car because it's reliable, it gets me where I need to go. I don't like my car because it's not very fuel efficient. I like my car because it wasn't all that expensive

- Meghan N

It runs very well, and it has been worth what we've spent on it thus far.

I like the fact that it is able to play music by means of my phone. I do not like the lack of bag bars across the top, I would like it much more if I were able to attach a bag.

- Henry B

That it's mines and you will respect it and that it's beautiful and that I love it with all my heart

I love this car it great it gets me places fast and it ride smooth ion have no trouble with it and I just overall love it not I do dislike the horn it never works in these cars

- Jay T

Traction control feature issues. Had car worked on but not fixed. Still have issues with this feature.

I like the way car drives. Handles well. Comfort is average. Problems with the traction control. Very expensive to have worked on. Price is a good value for a mid size car.

- Lila S

That it is very dependable,and reliable and it has a very good handling capabilities and is very comfortable to drive. It needs very limited maintenance. It is the only brand of car I would drive

It a vehicle which gets me around. I like the brand of car that I drive. It has some features that I added after purchase and that is some better speakers,and satellite radio

- Ronald M

My car has always been well maintained. Everything needed is in the computer where I have maintenance done to it.

It's a good, dependable car. My dislike about it is it sets too low to the ground compared to a pickup truck. A pickup gets better visibility at a stop sign compared to a car.
