#11807 of 13618 2004 Impala Changes & Thoughts
Apr 22, 2003 (10:31 am)
Gotta hate the deletion of the Charcoal bodyside moldings are no longer available on Impala LS:)
I sure wish they would have made that deletion before I bought my 2001 Impala LS. LOL!!
I just can't see paying what Chevrolet is asking for the new Impalas. Major improvements have not been made to the Impala line to date and all the little improvements (like offering a supercharged 3.8L engine, used in the Pontiac Grand Prix, in a all-new black-only color Impala SS) does not add up to price they are charging for these cars. Some may be satisfied with these minor improvements, but many Impala buyers are not.
Just my thoughts. Take them for what their worth.
#11808 of 13618 Traded the 2000 IMPALA for a 2000 Venture

Well guys, the Impala has been a great ride but with the new baby, we decided to trade in the 2000 Impala LS for a 2000 Venture LS minivan. Never realized how much STUFF little kids need. Yikes!
The Chevy Venture is a far different animal than the Impala but if it proves as reliable as the sedan, I'll be very happy.
Good Luck to all with your Impalas - I'll probably drop by now and then to see what's happening.

Sorry to see you go. May you have good success with/on your Venture:)

Take a look at a factory order, you can get an LS for about 18K if you have GM card rebate, a great value IMO if you skip the options like a CD player--do you really want to carry your CD collection around in your car? This will no doubt flame some but I'm building my new GM card earnings for a new base for a commuter for even less so I can get rid of the dreaded minivan station car.

I just got back from Michigan via Canada. It is a 570 mile trip. On the way out I got 29 mpg and on the way back I got 30.5. I must have caught a tailwind. The trunk was packed full & 2 adults & 2 kids. We just hit 9000 miles and that is no typo. The car ran great at close to 75 mph the entire trip. I checked all the fluids after the trip and all were full. I even marked the antifreeze level and that stayed the same. I took the Trailblazer to the store when I got home and it felt like I was driving a monster truck.

for the tip on the Michelins.
Laddie2, you should have gotten the XM radio. I wouldn't be without mine!

Yeah, the car I found had everything I wanted except the XM and everything I didn't want (sunroof) so I just had to do without the super radio. Matter of fact, I had a darned hard time finding the LS sports appearance package anywhere - I had to travel 75 miles to another location to find my car. No one seemed to have any Impalas with the sports appearance package - not sure why except that it was more expensive, but in my opinion, makes all the difference in the world in the appearance of the car. Anyway, 5 days into the car, I still love it!

Will stock Rims and Tires from a 1994 - 1996 SS Impala fit on a 2000 impala?
<shrug>I had to ask.
