Given its long-standing reputation as a car to be avoided, even as a free upgrade at the rental car counter, it is easy to have low expectations for the Chevrolet Impala. But the 2014 redesign dramatically transformed the model from a woefully uncompetitive and outdated offeringl into a thoroughly modern and remarkably enjoyable car.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2015 Chevrolet Impala owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

Backup or other camera/sensors

"Passenger side blight spot warning light, located in the passenger side rear view mirror stopped operating properly"

Anonymous, NY (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.6-L V6)

"Forward collision sensor needed to be replaced. In addition, that sensor also impacted the lane changing warning system. I was unaware that either of these systems had failed until I nearly had an accident when changing lanes as a car was in my blind spot. I've since learned to not trust the system fully even after having it replaced"

Anonymous, PA (2015 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"The blind spot wearing sensor shorted out due to water. The parts were on back order for many weeks. It has now been repaired and working okay."

"for some unknown reason my Mylink infotainment screen went black not blank black for about 3 days .and I was unable to use my radio or navigation system. Than after getting in my car and closing the door the screen came back to life. It has done this twice so far. I believe I have a loose connection some where in the dashboard."

"sometimes it does not work"

Francis J., NY (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.6-L V6)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"The MyLink system is not fully compatible with the SiriusXM traffic notification subscription as the map does not show the type of traffic (light, medium, heavy) for all roads. For example, around Baltimore MD, it will only display the type of traffic for the beltway (695). It ignores all others including 70. I've contacted both GM and SiriusXM and they blame each other. I'm siding with SiriusXM as my previous vehicles (a Ford and Chrysler) worked fine"

Anonymous, PA (2015 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"Nav system locks up after about 1-2 hours on long trips. You have to stop and shut off system for at most 10 minutes to reset nav system. Two attempts to fix failed. Cant tell if fixed until you take another long trip. Therefore it takes months for most average people to determine if fixed. They wont know until it messes up next family vacation."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 3.6-L V6)

"The module that controls onstar and the GPS navigation did not work when we picked up the car"

Michael K., MI (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.6-L V6)

"After operating for several hours on a long trip, the system loses it's instructions where it is going. It knows it's present location. Chevrolet was unable to duplicate the problem although they ran some system checks. The service manager told me to stop the vehicle and turn off the ignition. Wait 30 seconds and start the vehicle and the system should function properly. I have not taken a trip since which is over 2 1/2 hours and the system has not malfunctioned since then."

This sensor repair is listed at over $1,200.00, but the dealer is going to try and get GM to pay for it. While I'm waiting, the front sensor started acting up also."

Gauges came back, eventually but I continued to have intermittent problems with error codes related to traction control, power steering, and more; including the speedometer and tachometer fluctuating wildly while driving. Just error codes and gauge fluctuation with no apparent affect on the actual systems or mechanics - car still drove fine. After having it checked out three times but an independent shop and a dealer, it was diagnosed as a communications error between the key fob and the car. Dealer replaced the battery (one I had purchased from the same dealer less than six months previously, and the issues seem to have largely abated. I still had at least one instance of wild gauge fluctuation while driving, but nothing else."

Headlights

"When head lights are used on dark nights they suddenly go out! when I manually use the control knob and change from automatic to Manuel the lights work OK, but it does get a little scary when the lights suddenly go out!!"

Herbert M., PA (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The headlights on this vehicle provide poor illumination. There is very little lighting provided to the periphery. Brightness of the headlights is very disappointing and would keep me from buying this vehicle again"

Anonymous, NY (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.6-L V6)

"Headlights are inadequate and present a definite safety issue. The lights were not adjusted properly when I bought the car & it was difficult to see the road at night. I took my car back to the dealer and they adjusted the angle of the lights which improved the lighting slightly but not enough for me to feel safe driving the car at night. One night, my mother-in-law even asked my husband why he hadn't turned on the headlights because it was dark. The scary thing was that the lights were already"

Trudy W., NY (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.6-L V6)

"Headlight became fogged due to condensation from water that got into the sealed compartment. This happened when I was 1,000 miles over 35,000 mile warranty so I now have to pay over $1,000 to get it fixed"

Patti-Jo A., NY (2015 Chevrolet Impala 3.6-L V6)

"Dirt/debris that was not filtered by the fuel filter caused engine to go into limp mode. Dealership didn't cover the repair, which required a couple of new injectors, because it said it was caused by dirt in the gas. It was a $1,600 repair. Costco, where I bought the gas, denied the problem of dirt in its gas, and said it had never received that type of complaint before.

"We had the dealer add chrome to the car on the doors that was not factory installed and the chrome and glue that holds the chrome strips keeps peeling. Consumers should only buy factory installed chrome and not the glued on strips, or they will have"

Ed K., MS (2015 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.6-L V6)

"The entire front "clip" (nose and air dam) are a continuous problem (which may have been exacerbated by previous owner). The major panel including the grill tends to come loose and threaten to fall off. "Push-pin" fasteners secure this panel to its upper surround (both sides of latch assembly). They have worn or stretched their holes so as to be unreliable. (larger sizes, which may or may not help are very hard to obtain). Related problem here in Texas. I am aware of the importance of a functioning air dam, however, one regular driver parks where the curb stops contact the dam. The dam to ground checks (vehicle empty) at around 6 inches. Yes, it has been checked by a body shop. Due to texans reliance on oversize pickups, most curb stops are higher. My wife loves the rakish look of her Impala and, some of that rake may have been designed to improve vehicle stability at the speeds of which the Impala moves so effortlessly. I still believe the car should have been designed to contend with "less than perfect" parking conditions. One other "body" plaint - A damaged mirror shouldn't cost $890 to replace. People walk in to them in parking lots."

Transmission Minor

Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.

What Owners Say

Rough shifting

"The 1-2 and 2-3 shift are what I'd describe as very lazy. There is a significant and noticeable lag and loss of power between shifts, especially at low speeds. Taking off from a stop, the car responds fine, then it noticeably shifts out of first gear, the car slows for a heartbeat, then second gear activates. It's a noticeable and irritating loss of momentum, to the point where my head and my passengers' heads will bob slightly at the momentum change. The dealer says unable to replicate the issue. I've never experienced this in any other vehicle with an automatic transmission. It almost feels like a manual transmission. I've used the manumatic function (or whatever GM calls it), and the same delay is present."

Transmission computer

"Happened twice. Both times car would not drive and just prior to was shifting poorly. Had to take the car in twice, first time they could not "duplicate" problem. Next time they recommended new transmission and computer to prevent whatever it was that they were never really able to pinpoint. Expensive repair, not happy."
