You are in the Chevrolet Impala
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Impala, Sedan

"I also went by a Pontiac dealership and they had a navy blue supercharged Grand Prix with a MSRP of $28,030. Significantly less than a Impala Sport without a supercharger!!"
Did you compare 2003 to 2003? I have seen GTPs for less than $25000 on many occasions. Regal GSs too. While it doesn't seem right, Impalas sure are selling a hell of a lot more than GTPs and Regal GSs, so you can't say Chevy screwed up can you??

#11050 of 13621 Check Engine update
Nov 29, 2002 (10:01 pm)
I took my Impala to AutoZone this morning; they offer a free "check engine light" diagnosis (they have a code reader they can hook up, and give you the fault code). I believe the one I had was P304 "misfire on cylinder 4". I had them reset the codes, and I'll see if it comes up again. Figuring if it was a one time thing, it won't come back. If it's a real problem, I suspect it should return soon (but having driven it about 150 miles today with no problem, I think it's probably more the fluke variety).
Also must recommend going to AutoZone as an option when the check engine light comes on; I suspect they'd have done the same thing at the dealer, but I probably would have had to drop the car off and picked it up later, and they'd either have charged me for the diagnosis, and/or tried to sell me new plugs/wires/etc. Not saying I may not need these things, but the folks at AutoZone didn't try to sell me anything (and indeed, their assistance was free).

Several days have passed and no one older posted yet. Does that mean I'm old? I always liked the Hudson Hornet. They were really hot back in the 50's. They did well at Daytona when they were running on the beach. Hudson had some good features like step down design, roof antenna,twin H power, and back up brake system. They didn't hold up well in salty areas like Detroit. Young folks in their 20's back in the 50's couldn't get credit very easily so few had new cars. May be if Chev had an Impala in 54 you would have tried harder. Enjoy the ride.

Ditto on the Hudson Hornet. Only car I wanted when I was a teen. Wasn't that what James Dean drove??
Anyway, by the time I could buy a car I went for the Impala but was refused financing by GMAC since I had just graduated college and did not have a credit history. However, a commercial bank gave me an auto loan and I bought another brand so GM lost a customer for 14 years.
Picked up my 03 Impala LS last week. For $17,600 after rebates and GM earnings it's a great family car value IMO.
#11053 of 13621 BASS VIBRATIONS
Dec 02, 2002 (3:57 pm)
Just got the new CD by Norah Jones that everyone is talking about, "Come away with me."
She is everything everybody says she is, an amazing singer.
Put it in the '01 Impala with the new amp and the bass rattled the doors.
Turned the bass down 2 notches and the acoustic bass was still rattliing the doors.
This is a sparsely recorded cd and maybe I have it turned up louder than I normally do.
The only other time I get buzzing is from the radio because they add emphasis to the male announcers voices.
Anybody else experience this with specific cd's? None of my others do this.

I have the Norah Jones CD and played it in my LS. No problem to report.
By the way, my dad wanted to drive my Impala LS this morning. I was stuck driving to work with his '98 Camry. All i have to say is....I WANT MY IMPALA BACK!!

Replace the crappy factory speakers, and you'll see a world of difference. The bass will still be quite full, but decent speakers will reproduce it clearly. Night and day, my friend.
Also, GM has issued a TSB regarding the over-abundance of bass in the auto-tone settings. The dealership can reprogram it.
