A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Chevrolet Impala

chevrolet impala 2012

A true classic, the 2012 Chevrolet Impala may not have all of the latest high-tech features of other sedans on the market, but it is a tried-and-true model with lots of room, plenty of comfortable features, and a large trunk for cargo storage. If you’re looking for a reliable sedan that will get you there every time, look no further than the 2012 Chevrolet Impala.

Key Features

The designers at Chevrolet know that you want a good sound system, which is why they include an eight-speaker Bose sound system as an option for the LT trim and as a standard feature for the LTZ trim.

The other big feature of this already spacious sedan is the fold-flat split back seat. You can fold down one or both sections to increase the already sizeable trunk to carry everything you need.

Changes for 2012

Did someone say power? The 2012 Chevrolet Impala now has a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 300 horsepower and a six-speed automatic transmission, standard at all trim levels. The LS trim also got 16” cast aluminum wheels, and a few other features have been added throughout the line.

What We Like

You can rely on Chevy to offer a reliable, standard Impala every year, and you know that you’re not just getting any sedan – you’re getting a very powerful vehicle. With 300 horsepower, you won’t have any problem getting in gear and moving down the road when you need to.

What Concerns Us

While the Impala is a great car for someone who doesn’t want a lot of fancy new high-tech frills, a lot of people love those frills. That can hurt your resale value on this car, which can be good for you if you’re buying a used one today but bad for you when you try to sell it later on.

Available Models

All trim levels of the 2012 Chevrolet Impala have the same 3.6-liter V6 engine with 300 HP at 6500 RPM and 262 lb-ft of torque at 5300 RPM. The Impala is also rated at 18 MPG on city streets and 30 MPG on the highway.

Major Recalls

Three major recalls have affected the 2012 Chevrolet Impala – one for misrouted power steering hoses, one for fractured front lower arm controls, and one for malfunctioning ignition switches.

Common Issues

Some drivers have complained of a one-second delay when accelerating and/or a clunking sound in the transmission or engine of some 2012 Chevrolet Impalas.
