Hi everyone, new to this great site with lots of info on this generation Impala. My father-in-law recently passed away and my wife and I are thinking about purchasing his 2002 Impala from her siblings. It’s a Base model with the 3.4 V6 and 42,000 miles. The car was always serviced by the dealer. Recent oil changes at least once a year. LIM gasket replaced under warranty in 12/05 at 20K. New tires to replace OEM ones in 5/10 @ 37K, with intermediate steering shaft replacement and alignement, as well. The body and interior are in great shape, except for a few 'senior citizen' scrapes on the exterior. One concern. The service records keep showing dead batteries, with it being replaced in 7/08, 6/10, 12/10, 1/12, 3/12 and 11/12. Is this the ’pass lock’ gremlin being misdiagnosed? Also, what do you guys think would be a fair offer? I was going to try to offer $3000.00 Thanks for any input.
