Third Car I've ever owned.

It has just enough legroom for a giant person like myself (7'0/300 pounds). When it comes to comfort, the car easily fit five people and a dog. I dislike the center console, but it was functional. The radio was very poor quality when we bought it, but the car comes equipped with a amp and subwoofer, and it is supremely high quality sound. This car has put up with 100 mile round trips daily, and it still works, despite us not taking great care of it. We have had to replace a lot of parts in the engine, partially because we didn't keep it up to standards, but also partially because of it's age. I would highly recommend this as a first time vehicle, or a high schooler vehicle, if you can get it for under $3,000.

This car is in constant repair mode. When it's fixed, it runs like a dream, but every month it seems something else breaks down. It's a shame, because as a larger person, this car has plenty of room for me, and the bench seating is something I'll sorely miss. However, it's not worth having what's essentially a monthly car payment's worth of repairs.

Great car for everything

We bought our Impala over a year ago and we still love it. Great for tall and plus size people. Four adults can travel out to dinner in comfort without feeling cramped. The trunk is enormous holds my roommates wheelchair plus and months worth of groceries. It could get better gas mileage but it is a very big car. It drives and maneuvers excellent in tight parking lots without seeming like a boat. I would buy another one tomorrow. The only real con about the car is the very dim interior lights.

Best Car I've Owned

I bought this car new in September, 1999, and have been driving it for nearly 16 years. Outside of a few warranty-covered repairs early on (cooling system, battery & ignition switch) it has been a first-rate performer. I did have to have the hub bearings on one of the front wheels replaced recently. I am now retired (since 2010), so the amount of driving I do has decreased, but it still has over 100,000 miles on it. This car is the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned - only once has it failed to start (dead battery, caused by a very hot summer). It no longer gets much over 20 MPG, but that's mainly because most of my driving is urban. It is great for trips - very comfortable. Handling is very sure - I always feel confident that the car will respond quickly to brakes and steering. The air conditioning has not been touched since purchase, and it still keeps the car cold on the warmest days of summer. What can I say? I love this car!

What may look like a decent car, is everything but. My grandfather bought this car from a friend, and I bought it from him. The man assured it was a great car, and from the looks it was. Well little did we know we would later on have to replace every motor mount and just about everything else under the hood, but the motor and transmission. The hair and heat only blows on defrost, and it makes a loud whistle when you mash the gas! Wow, yeah I hate this car!

Makes Me Proud

My first car, I bought my 2000 Chevy Impala LS at a local dealer at almost first sight. I got it with 142k miles to start and have put about 5k miles on it now. It's needed some repairs I needed to pay for such as a wheel bearing and sway bar. I can tell that the previous owner wasn't very enthusiastic but I've shown this car nothing but love. The 200 horsepower 3.8L V6 sounds amazing, and the torque really gives you a rush. The car reaches 0-60 in about 9 seconds. She handles especially well even being a full sized sedan. It is extremely spacious inside with more than enough room for me (Standing 6'0 tall). The backseats as well have enough room for my chair to be pushed back and a full sized adult behind me. The car has controls on the steering wheel for the radio, as well as a cruise control button. It also boasts a compass at the top, which can change into an instant MPG calculator or average MPG meter, as well as telling you how many gallons of gas you've used. The car has a helpful rear defogger as well as dual climate control. The trunk room is also massive, I did a test and fit 2 of my friends (both over 150lbs) into the back and they still had room to spare. The interior is a dull grey color and is simple but decent for being a middle of the line car. This car gets good mileage for its heavy weight. I average about 22 MPG with bigger 3.8L engine. With a good wash this car looks like the sharpest thing in the parking lot at my school, and all my friends really love it as well. For her size she's earned the nickname "The Chevy Landyacht" I really love this car and am glad I purchased it. She's my first car and I'm glad I made a good choice.

i bought my 2000 impala in 2003 with 50000 miles on it. for the first few years it was only short trips. the last 4 years i have been commuting 84 miles to work 5 days a week with no problems. now with 160000 and counting it runs like the day i bought it. Only work done to it is rear wheel bearings. I also have experienced the issue with the directionals working sporadically. Overall a solid car, will likely buy another when this one dies
