I am the second owner of my 1965 Impala. I purchased it in January 1973. It has now been driven a total of over 500,000 miles with 2 engine rebuilds, and 1 transmission rebuild. It still looks good, is reliable and fun to drive!

Do you drive a 1965 CHEVROLET IMPALA?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
