Good vehicle for those with children who need space and less distractions.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

We have had issues with the engine light always being on due to the gas cap. Gas cap was replaced resulting in engine light turning off. However this only lasted about a year and the same problem has arisen. The ride is not as smooth as a person would expect. I personally do not care for the seats. The front seats cause your back to curve in an unnatural manner. The front and the back seats are too high causing extra blind spots and difficulty when backing up. I do love that the car is reliable even on the coldest or hottest of days. The heat and AC work quickly and efficiently. The displays on the dash are great to have as reminders to have oil changed, check tires, and how far you can travel before having to stop and fuel up. There are also buttons on the steering wheel for the radio and volume; this helps to deter from any extra distractions during driving. The impala also has a spacious trunk and backseat locks for infant car seats. There are child locks for those times when you have a curious toddler or child in the backseat.

Not first choice or my second or third.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

This car was purchased used and in good order. My biggest complaint is poor gas mileage and a terrible shimmy at 55 - 60 mph. Wish I could have gotten fabric seats. Headlights blow on the reg. The rear seat design is awful with large humps invading the driver's rear sight line. Overall would not have chosen this vehicle. Was purchased for me and in my absence.

Chevy Impala: The most efficient car ever

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

It is a very reliable car, it takes me where I need to go and gives me no problems. It is efficient for family or if your single. Don't really have car problems because my husband works on the car throughout the time we drive it around. I really enjoy the comfortableness of the car, the air condition was amazing and the heater keep me nice and toasty.

- Veronica Y

Love my Chevy impala, would recommend.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

I have had this vehicle since 2014. It was previously my dad's company car, which he put many miles on. The car still runs great with only a few things I have needed to fix, including brakes, wheel bearings, and shocks. This vehicle is very reliable and comfortable and I would recommend it for daily commuters.

The pros of owning a Chevy impala.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

The only problem is the ac actuator. The car is very reliable. The car is great on gas. I love that is has 6 seats if the console is lifted up. It is very comfortable to take on long road trip. The cost of the car is reasonable. The ac and heat work really great. Another amazing feature is the automatic start.

The way the car functions

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

Don't like how it makes noises in the door and if your a short person can't see what traffic is coming from just looking over have to adjust your body I believe the Chevy is a good car but I don't feel like it's the right one for me. So it's best to test drive vehicle before purchasing to know your right fit

I have a great solid, reliable car.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

My car has always been reliable. The heater is great in the winter and the a/c amazing in the summer. I still get great gas mileage. It rides nice, my other cars weren't as smooth. The best thing about the car is the remote start. Definitely a plus during the winter! Very glad I bought the car.

Chevy impala: sturdy car, good gas mileage

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

My impala works perfectly for me - no fancy bells and whistles, but still necessary features for me (such as heated seats). However, it does take a while to warm up/cool down. Good gas mileage, and much more durable than my previous Nissan. I'm currently at >100,000 with no problems thus far.

A reliable and dependable vehicle.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

The car is very reliable. The only issue I've had that I've also heard from other owners is the ticking by the glove compartment. Which is annoying but you get used to it. The vehicle is for a small family. It has good trunk space. The interior is ok. The car is pretty smooth as well.

- Pearl S

2011 Impala with all the options.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Retail

My 2011 Impala has been a great car! Very few problems. The previous owner had taken great care of the car and it is still in wonderful shape. The car is comfy for the long car rides and has great power for the highway. Good gas mileage and stellar sound system as well.
