Bought this for my 2000 Impala with the 3.8L Buick engine. My old one had broken where the plastic end fits into the dip stick metal tube. It was the right size and length but came packaged well and must have gotten bent (metal part) during shipping. I was able to bend it back and it fits perfect. This is a common thing with the plastic end breaking. With the plastic end broke off, you won't get a proper reading of your oil level. It actually will show more oil since the broken off end sits deeper down into the dip stick tube. Would have given it 5 stars but was bent.
The metal is the same thickness as the original, (checked it with calipers) so it's worth the money I paid.
The dip stick isn't tempered so it bends very easily and is not suitable for use. I returned the dipstick for refund but I have not received credit. I do not recommend this product.
This is a perfect replacement for the original. If it were not for the oil stains on the old one, I would not be able to tell them apart. Great value, too, much less expensive than going to the dealer, and better fitting than a universal bought at an auto parts store.
