2009 Chevrolet Impala Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Impala
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.
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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
