2000 Chevrolet Impala


PostPosted: Fri Oct 09, 2009 9:14 am    Post subject:  New to the forum Reply with quote

Hello all,

Just joined the forum, I drive a 2000 LS with 180 000km on the clock. My relashionship with that car started on a very bad note. Bought it from a use car dealer in 2005 and it had 109 000km on it. A month after the parchase, on my way to Quebec city the tranny was surging while on the cruse( 2500$ for the rebuilt the overdrive shaft was worn over 85%), another month passed and an intake valve spring unlock it self destroying one of the piston and scoring beyond repair the cylindre. Since it was my main car at the time, decided to drop in a GM core engine in it $$$$.

After all this, I was ready to burn the car down. My wife managed to control my madness and we decided to keep it for a while.

We have been driving the car for 60 000 km now and the only problem we had was minor and easily fixable.

Today I drive the car every day and would not replace it with any other car, its size, fuel effetiency, its comfort. Its just to good to be thru.

This forum will proove helpfull I'm sure.

Ok, ok I'm sure I could find something. I was just trying to say that for now the car suits me good and fit my budget. Wink

You can always repeat my mantra. "It's paid for... it's paid for...". Laughing
