2009 Chevrolet Impala Reviews

Overall it is a good car. Gas mileage with the 3500 engine is excellent. My issues have been sensors, ABS/Traction Control,and airbag sensor issues as well. I have 113,400 miles and it runs great. No issues other then the sensors.

I have already had to replace rear driver side power lock acuator and now the front passenger side power lock acuator is bad. $230 for eah repair. first one was covered under warranty. Very expensive and pretty upset this has happened to 2 windows and car has less than 50,000 miles on it.

bought 2009 used with 19k. battery replaced 2x, ac issues off and on, front end alignment done, do oil changes faithfully every 4-5K, K&N air filter no issues, brakes have been so so from the beginning, appears they are now warped and need replaced, will do that with better quality brakes this time, have the same issue another writer addressed with the transmission slipping at odd times, appears for me that on an uphill incline is when I have noticed it lately, will be taking it in since have a 100k extended warranty.

Impala is worst car when it comes to transmission, every 6 months I have to change my tranny, catalic converter is a problem, body throtle is problem, engine power reduce is problem, lots of lots of problem.

best car, thats why we've had 3 since 2006! all brand new and loving them!
