Chevrolet Impala: Meet the Owners

I did finally get some pictures up though:
However, it looks like we're listening to the same CD. Is the second-from-the-right CD in the last picture the Matrix soundtrack? Very wierd!!
Kenbuzz - Although I do talk to myself frequently, I try not to "chat" or e-mail myself too often! However, my neighbours do think I'm nuts because I wash my car so often and ride my mountain bike over 2x4s on my driveway!
They cost me over 150. They are also on ebay Item #591908677
Dont need them since I am trading in LS for an Avalanche. Hate to, but want to. I love my LS so much.
Was a little cautious and had my first oil change today. I love this car!
Bug/tree sap remover works wonders but I have never used to to remove an invisible bra...
It seems to be quite common. I, and others, thought that rocks were hitting our windshields. It drives me crazy. I instinctually flinch every time it happens, in reaction to the non exsistent rock.
I belive there is a GM TSB called "Snapping/Popping Noise From Dash Area". Unfortunately, I don't have the full bulletin. If anyone does, it would be so nice if they would post it in the "service issues" topic. It may explain how to get rid of it.
Model: Impala LS
Interior: Gray Leather
Build Date: 06/01
My wife and I decided on this car after renting it several times. (Including one 1800km road trip) I have rented plenty of cars and this was the only one I could actually fit into, especially entering and exiting the vehicle which is usually a challenge for somebody my height. I'm 6'6" tall so I don't fit in a Honda. My wife is almost 6' tall so she's not exactly short, either. The headroom is superb and the power driver's seat is a blessing. We liked the lack of a centre console on the base model because I don't wack my knees on it like I would in other cars. Probably the best thing I like about the Impala is the automatic transmission. I have driven plenty of cars, and I don't think anything else on the road comes close to the performance and smoothness of the tranny on the Impala. It never hunts for gears, even driving through mountains.
You mentioned renting. Perhaps you'd be interested in this?
The New York Times is interested in hearing people's reactions to the special car rental deals currently in effect. You can now borrow a car for as low as $9.99/day from Enterprise or $20/day from Hertz, and you can get a Ford Ranger at $19.99/day or $99.99/week from Budget. How does that fit into your travel plans? Or, does it inspire you to rent a vehicle locally for personal use?"

I just purchased a 2001 Navy Blue Impala LS - Loaded. Excellent Car. Drove it 1500 miles home and at 70-75 mph, I never averaged under 30 mpg highway! Plus my wife is extremely happy since she no longer needs here "pillow" to see out the front! As soon as we get some sun here in North Dakota, I'll post some pics to my web site.
P.S. This is my first post...
unfortunatley i have been in an accident with this car (not my fault) i was rear ended. for the speed the cop (yes, a cop rear ended me) was going, it held up pretty well. Thankfully everything on the body is fixed now.
this is my first time to the site and looking forward to all the info!!!
Please send your response to [email protected], or post in Talk to the Press.
In any case, if you are not satified, go after the dealer. "That's how all the cars are" or "they are made that way" is a cop out.
If you have some time, we would really appreciate Town Hall members writing a review of their current auto, or a favorite make/model. It takes approximately a week for your review to appear on that make/model.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
I am concerned about used vehicles and Chevy burning oil - Luminia needed valve job at 120,000. Been burning oil since 32,000 but dealer said that was normal - lol.
Go with an LS and you'll be happy. I'm one of those anal people who likes to get brand new cars so my opinion on new vs. used will be totally skewed.
Somewhere on the driver's door there's a sticker that shows the build month/year. We used to have sort of an unofficial date of Dec. 99 or so that we suggested avoiding anything made before - basically if you're going to get a '00 model, get one made as late in 2000 as possible - otherwise, any 2001 should be fine.
But if you could find a 2000 model in Auburn Nightmist, as far as I know you'd be the only person posting here who ever had one in that color. By far the rarest color (only used on 2000 models), and odds are it wouldn't be a hot seller as a used car either.
Ha, like what else does he have to do all day - after all he is a car salesman. Geez - I am starting my internet search for model I want and a dealer who wants to sell cars not play sales games.
Also found a 2000 LS built prior to Aug. 1999 for $17580 also loaded. Salesman said it has a Fidelity 1 year warranty on powertrain...?
Which would you pick?
Sounds more credible. Is 20,995 reasonable for this vehicle?
