Long term reliability of the Impala
I have spent nearly $1000 on my 2004 Impala LS since last July, and the car only has 85,600 miles on it. The actuator for the door that controls the airflow in the A/C system had to be replaced, the thermostat had to be replaced, and I just had to have both front wheel bearing/hub assemblies replaced. I think my power steering unit is leaking, too.
The car had to have the intake gasket replaced twice, but it was under warranty then. There was still the inconvenience of taking it in to have it fixed.
I think a brand new car should need only routine service plus a brake job and a set of tires during its first 100,000 miles of service. Is that being unreasonable?
