I'm considering a 2016 Chevy Impala Limited. I've been driving it as a rental

I drive a 2010 Impala and just love it, has the 3.5L with 140,000 miles on it, and just had to replace front wheel bearings and take care of a emissions leak. I did it myself, easy to work on. I have no issues with the Impala and just love the newer and new body styles. I think there real nice cars.

Thanks Roewfast. Did you buy new or used? I opened the hood and see silver tape on some of the hoses. Not sure if this is due to leaks or from the factory.

I bought it used. Had a good service record. Not sure what the tape would be for unless it is by an exhaust manifold to deflect heat, or to deflect wear on the part. I'd have to see. I really don't see a lot of Impala question here on this sight, but from what I do read problems are from neglect, or minor regular maintenance.

What's your take on CPO? The Chevy Impala Limited are fleet cars. Can I safely assume they are well maintained? Possibly accident records don't show up in the car fax?

If it's the car you're already familiar with, consider it a long term test drive. Rental cars are usually reasonably well maintained. They don't want their customers getting broke down. It's bad PR. Accidents, if bad enough, are usually reported to Carfax by the insurance company who handles the claim. Fleet cars usually do have higher mileage on them so they're offered for sale at a lower price. A certified preowned (CPO) vehicle must pass an inspection for it to be certified so it's a safer bet. However if it's the rental company who's doing the inspection, I'd be careful. Visit carcomplaints.com and see what others who own these vehicles are saying about them. You can check for any recalls as well. HTH. -Jim

Oh, must have ben a little tired last night, Js08016 hit the nail on the head when it come to a vehicle from a fleet. I figured you were looking at one from a car dealer.
