Fell in love with the car as soon as I test drove it off the lot. The handling is wonderful and comfy to drive and ride! Even though it's the smaller engine the V6, 3.5L still has some get up and go! I love my Impala!!!!!
The Chevy Impala SS is a great car for the family man in many ways. First, it it very practical. Good luck finding a bigger trunk. It seats five very comfortably. My 3 daughters love riding in it, in fact they would rather ride in the back seat of the car instead of a Dodge Grand Caravan that seats 7. Second, it is a great value. Unbeknownst to the import loving crowd, GM (mostly Chevy and Cadillac) has lately produced great cars that are better than the mainstream Japanese and German cars for the same $$$. Give the import loving media a while longer to discover this. How could it be a better value? The materials, fit and finish and features. My car has a sunroof, bose system (8 speakers), heated leather power seats, 6 disc cd, tire pressure monitor, oil life monitor, etc. There are no cars that compare for the price. Third, performance. There is no Accord or Camry or Maxima that come close. You could buy an Acura TL for 8k more and have equal performance. Keep the 8k and buy the Impala SS. Here are the performance specs: A) 0-60: 5.6 seconds B) 1/4 mile: low 14's C) gas mileage: personally I can get 28 easily every tank (mostly highway). If I drive with a purpose - 25 mpg D) Torque: 330 lb-ft. That is a lot of power for a family car. This is the kind of power that puts a smile on your face. E)303 hp from a V-8 with cylinder deactivation. It goes from economy car to juggernaut seamlessly. Save the enviroment - don't buy a Prius (the batteries are actually toxic waste), buy an Impala SS. Keep America Rolling! You will be glad you did. When my wife and I were trying to decide to get the Impala or not, we decided to ask the next person we saw driving one. It didn't take long to find. We were in a Walmart parking lot when a woman parked close by. To get to the point - she had driven BMW's for many years but loved her Impala. It was the best car she ever had and she highly recommended the SS. Hope this helps.
The car is great, I love it. My wife knows a lot about cars, so she picked it out. In my opinion I'm getting every dollars worth!
