Chevrolet Impala Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • Took my 2000 Impala to Meyers Chev Olds in Ottawa for routine service today, because I was tired of the morons at Jiffy Lube and Mr. Lube telling me I needed all sorts of crazy repairs that weren't necessary, and tearing my car apart without asking first.

    Myers is a well designed dealership. There is an indoor service area into which you drive and park your vehicle. The service rep sits at a desk right where you pull up and then you can organize what service you need. They offer free shuttle service so you can drop your car off in the morning and go to work while they work on your car. They have an excellent on site cafe where you can get free food Mon-Thurs and watch your car be serviced while you eat. They also have a body shop and rent cars.

    The odo just turned over 80,000 km, so I had that service performed (power steering system flush). In addition, I asked for an oil change, and to change the engine air filter and passenger compartment air filter. Much to my surprise, they told me afterwards that both filters were not dirty and did not need to be changed. The service personnel are very knowledgable and don't jerk you around.

    I did not buy my car at this dealership, but perhaps I will when it is time to buy again.

    Hi Folks: Took my 2002 LS in to Carter GM for the TSB re the "clunking steering". They lubed it, no fix, so they replaced the intermediate steering shaft without me even having to ask. Problem is now gone. If only it was this simple each time!

    I bought my 2000 Chevy Impala Base used from Century III Chevy in Pittsburgh, PA.

    I was able to get the vehicle for $10,900 plus tax, etc., etc. This was a year ago so that seemed to be a good deal at the time.

    The dealership is very aggressive, but as you walk out the door from their ridiculous sales pitch their reality mode kicks in. I bought a Blazer from them as well and have been happy with the service.

    The Impala had 25,000 miles on it. Today it has 46,000. I do a lot of highway driving so my car's mileage goes up quite a bit each year.

    Problems? Other than my unhappiness with the 104 amp no real issues.

    Bob Peck Chevrolet is a small dealership in a large metro area in business for 60 yrs. family run. Nobody believes what I paid for 03LS but I had the old GM card with lots of GM earnings. This and the Beyer Volvo dealership have been my best buying experiences but Impala is more reliable and better value IMO--this is a Chevrolet board, isn't it?
  • We bought an '03 Impala LS for my wife a couple weeks ago at Love Chevrolet in Seaside, CA. It was the easiest car buying experience we've ever had. There was absolutely no pressure.

    Even before we got into the "little room" to discuss price and financing the salesman said "We'll work with some numbers and send you home to sleep on them." And they did. There was no pressure to sign that day. They even called the next morning with an even better deal which made the sale a no-brainer. In the end, after rebates, discounts, and trade-in we paid only slightly more for the Impala LS than we paid for my wife's Mazda 626 in 1995! And the Impala is a much better car.

    We are really happy with the comfort, handling, and responsiveness of the Impala, and we love the service we got from Love Chevrolet.
  • Nobody buy impala these years? Or nobody wanna share buying experience here? don't let the dealer rob us, let's talk.
  • A salesman quoted me $500 over invoice and you also get $1000 rebate (or low financing from GMAC) on 2006 Impala.
  • that will be invoice+500+tax+TTL-1000,right?
    and maybe some other fees. for me, the dealer ask for paint sealant($100) and consumer services($300).

    BTW,which model did you quote?
  • I have a 2006 Impala with the LT3 package on order. The only reason I didn't go for the LTZ was my wife doesn't care for leather interiors. The car is equipped with a sunroof, Bose speakers and the universal garage door opener. Invoice is $24,804. I bought it for $25,132. I think I could have bought it at invoice with a little more effort on my part. I get to keep the 1k rebate. Dealer says about three weeks delivery but I'm betting on more like 8 weeks.
  • that's a very useful message,thanks for posting.

    So you mean you paid $25,132-1000. totally? including everything?
  • The total price was $25,132 minus $1,000 rebate equals $24,132. I will probably pass on the rebate making the total cost $25,132 and take the 3.9% financing. This doesn't include tag and tax which is around $1,750 in my area. Keep in mind the Chevy dealers get a 3% holdback off of MSRP so they did ok on the deal.

    After ordering mine I saw another local dealer advertising the base LS model for $500 below invoice.
  • Wonder if that price of $500 below invoice included the $1000 rebate from GM. Then, you are paying the dealer $500 more than invoice then the grand from GM results in the $500 below invoice.
  • That's a good question. After I ordered my car, I made the car lots on Sunday morning and and saw the LS on a local dealers lot with a sign on the windshield noting "$500 below invoice". I'm assuming that was not including the rebate but I don't know that. The dealer in question is relatively new, very small, I don't think they will be in business long. For that reason they may be discounting to establish volume. I have mine on order so I guess it doesn't matter to me.
  • I wanna sent the dealer this email to negotiate the price.
    maybe it looks stupid. please give me some advice.

    ===============================
    Dear Sir/Madam:

    I hope this email can save our time. I want to buy a Chevy impala 1LT with 3 options: 1) Wheels: 16 in 5-Spoke Styled Cast Aluminum; 2) 4-Wheel Antilock Disc Brakes;3) Flip & Fold Flat Rear Seat. Everything else will be standard.

    Other N/C options will be the front 40/20/40 split-bench seat. The exterior color I wanted is Black, Glacier Blue Metallic, Laser Blue Metallic, Silverstone Metallic, or Superior Blue Metallic. Either interior color is fine with me.

    Here are my questions:
    1) Can you offer me the price for "invoice-500+options+destination fee+tax+tag-rebate”?
    2) How long will it take you to order my choice?
    3) How much can you accept my credit card payment? I am going to finance with my credit union.

    I think that is going to be $21,861.88 totally. This price will be the final out of door price with nothing else. So can you do it?

    Sign on to www.chevy.com. You can build and price the impala of your dreams. Options colors etc on line. Then ask for a quote from the Chevy dealer in your area (zip code ). The Dealer will get back to you very quickly with the price and rebates for the vehicle. You can negotiate from there with out leaving your house. That's how I bought mine. :)

    Best,
    Ken

    I purchased the Impala LT3 with moon roof for $23,583.84. That included tax and title out the door.
    ( I believe the tax in North east Ohio is about 8% )

    The only difference in options between the LT3 and the LTZ was the leather seats that I did not want. It actually has the same options as the SS model with the exception of the small block V8 engine. The LT3 has the bigger 6 cylinder engine as standard.

    I feel it was a decent price for the model and options I wanted, and I did this with out a hassle or leaving home until I had the deal I wanted.

    Best,
    Ken
  • Congratulations.That's a very very good price. Unbelievable!

    It seems much cheaper than the 24,132+tax+title one with sunroof,bose sound system and door remote.

    we are getting good deal now.
  • kenymkenym Posts: 405
    I didn't do the upgrade on the bose sound system. I am 68 and just listen to AM talk radio anyway. I believe that's about a 3 or 4 hundred dollar difference. Door remote and remote starting was standard on the LT3.

    Best,
    Ken
  • The door remote is the universal garage door remote opener. I think that's about $80. Your price is very good though. It's about $1000 less than my expect. Is it hard to negotiate? Can you please share more experience?
  • Yes, this truly is a great price, you bought it for $1,500 below invoice.
