#2 of 17 back seat width??
Mar 13, 2006 (5:58 am)
Someone posted a comment that the Impala SS's back seat is notably wider (for families) than the Grand Prix GXP.
If you're still out there... can you please elaborate? Did you try putting in car seats in both? Is it the difference between having 2 and 3 kids back there?
Thanks very much!

I have an 06' Impala SS, and I currently have 2 car seats and 1 booster seat in the back. It's a little tight, but they're in there properly.
I looked at the rear seat dimensions on a LOT of cars when it came time to buy. I assumed that the Grand Prix and the Impala would have similar dimensions since (I thought) they were built on the same platform. However, going by the numbers, it seems that the Grand Prix's rear seat has smaller seats by a decent margin.
I can't speak to whether or not 3 car seats will fit in the Pontiac, but they WILL fit in the Chevy.
#4 of 17 Body side molding is pulling away a bit from door
Oct 05, 2006 (4:59 am)
I have a 2006 Impala LTZ and the body side molding strip on the left passenger door is pulling away from the door a bit at the front edge. Is there something that I can use temporarily to make the molding strip adhere to the body until the Chevy body shop gets a new molding and installs it? (They have promised to do so as a "We Owe" but are taking awhile.)

without making it difficult for the service dept to do whatever they plan on doing, whether completely replacing it or just using an adhesive, and though not the prettiest... I'd suggest simply using painter's tape or any other tape that won't damage the clear coat/pait and won't leave a residue. good luck.

I actually drove up there today and they put on adhesive to see if it would hold. The body shop people were helpful; the sales people have not been. This Chevy dealer is one I will not recommend or return to...especially since there are a few closer to me. If it starts to pull away again, I think I will use painter's tape until it can get replaced, but I expect difficulty with the dealer (unfortunately).

"I expect difficulty with the dealer (unfortunately). "
That's silly eh?! It's rather quite an easy fix... it'd be stupid for the dealer to get all pissy about it. But I guess it happens. Good luck.

So far it has held for 36 hours. I'm hoping the adhesive will set enough and that the problem does not reoccur.
This dealer is one with whom I should not have concluded a deal, but they had the only used 2006 LTZ in the whole area, and once I drove it, I was convinced it was a great car.
#10 of 17 2003 impala outer door handle
May 03, 2007 (2:52 pm)
Hi I own a 2003 Impala LS. My passenger side rear outer door handle just snapped off on one side. I was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this and how difficult it is to change? Ive taken the door panel off but have not removed the door handle as I am awaiting the part to arrive. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
