ImpalaWhile undergoing many facelifts in its history, the Impala has proved itself to both civilians and police forces as one of the most capable 4-door cars GM has ever offered. Currently moving towards its 10th generation the Impala is one of the longest lasting and popular models.
My first impala which was an 03 LS 3.8 had 257,000miles and I still see it driving around town. I never changed anything but a power steering pump and thermostat on that car. I was the original owner of that car.
Second impala was a 02 LS 3.8 with a little over 100, 000 miles when I sold it and I never changed a thing on that one. Bought that from the second owner.
Current impala is an 03 LS 3.8 with 95, 000 miles on it. Bought this one from an original owner. No issues so far

I have an '03 Impala LS with ~197k miles. It will be 200k by year end. I haven't had any nightmarish problems, but some irritating problems. The brake disks need to be replaced too often IMO. For the most part though, it's a solid car. Drives great for nearly 200,000 miles!
2009 Impala..31K no problems except a lot of road noise when out on the highway. 2000 LT 4x4 Blazer 102K Replace almost everything on the engine except the water pump its still going, knock on wood...Just had the MAFS clean out and injectors clean. And something none of you mention has the tires replace at 60K, still good. But the best part is the brakes. Did the front at 50k and the rotors really didn't need it. But I'm an old timer so I change things before then break. Change the back brakes at 90,000 miles, get that 90,000 miles and they look like new..go figure..Need to replace the OEM plugs wires when I get around to it...102K on them.
02 Impala, 189k miles, had many problems since i brought it in 02. changed water pump twice, manifold gasket, radiator 3 times, thermostat 2 times, fuel pump, radiator 3 times, battery 3 times, brakes 4 times, so far no major engine and transmission problems. Have to get rid of it soon, god knows what may happen next.
I had 165000 kilometers on a impala 2003 and traded the car because of too many problems. The last straw was transmission problems and this was the end of my impala. I know some taxi drivers that clocked 400 000 kilometers on their impala's
2003 Impala with 3.4L V6. Almost 293K miles, mainly highway. I've replaced the AC Compressor, replaced oem rotors with drilled and slotted rotors, replaced struts & springs and put new gaskets on intake manifold. That's it. Still gets 33 mpg and only on 4th set of tires.
I own a 2004 Chevy Impala 3.4 with 20,300 miles. Knock on wood, have only had to replace the brake rotors once three years ago. I am not the first owner of this car, an older man owned it before me and damaged the body of the car greatly. Runs fine and gets great mileage. I am considering getting an Aeroforce gauge for the car as well.
I had a 2002 Impala which had 38K when I bought it and traded it in April 2010 with 126K miles. Had to do the brakes a couple of times, tire rods, and tires. Was very sad the day I traded it in. Bought a 2007 Impala LT with 42K miles on it. Currently at 58K and did the rotors and replaced the intermediate steering shaft (common problem). Other than that, I still love my Impalas!!!
