2001 Impala Owner Reviews (1)
IMPALA BUYERS BE AWARE!

Shame on GM for putting out an engine with a known defect that costs around $800 to get fix and it happens around 70,000 miles.
The 3400 Engine used in many of GMs cars has a known problem with the lower intake gasket that fails and costs $800 to get fixed. If not caught in time the engine will be ruined when the coolant leaks into the engine oil crankcase. There is a class action suit pending in Canada by GM owners whom have had this problem.
Also a known problem the bushings on the lower A frames fail and you will feel a knock in the brake petal and steering wheel when coming to a stop.
Don't buy an Impala with this engine or you will be sorry!!!!!
