2013 Chevrolet Impala User Reviews
- $25,860 - $30,400
- No trim specified for this review
- Simple to use dashboard controls, decent fuel economy and a very large trunk.
- Very loud wind and outside noise, and may sensor issues. Rear seat space also is cramped.
Purchased As Used
I drive an 07 chevy impala as a family car and have done so since it had 16k miles on it. I also drive a 2013 impala for work so I can review both in one setting since the only changes are the engine / transmission.
Now almost 6 years later I have 115,00k miles on imy 07 and the transmission and engine only seem to get smoother as she goes.
I must note, however, that although the engine and transmission are great and I have never had problems with them, I take extremely good car of my car with oil changes every 3k miles and major service checks every 30k miles. These usually run in the $200-$300 range.
Lets just start with Negatives...a smaller back seat than my wife's Prius, very loud wind noise, many computer sensor issues, cheap exterior paint, cheap fake leather, cheaper than dirt interior materials, and way outdated.
Now for the Positives...good gas mileage for a car its size(have reached 34 mpg on straight highways, but expect 27-29), decent engine power, extremely good engine power with the 2013 3.6 liter, good for tall people only if they are driving, and an enormous trunk.
The engine will go forever if you take care of it, but if you expect to keep it for a long time, expect to pay dearly for the little things.
For the 2013, the transmission needs a little more refining as it often hesitates to shift in low gears, but when she goes...she can fly with 303 horsepower. You've been warned.
