After ten years, my '94 Impala SS is still fun to drive and looks good. There is plenty of room for my family of five and all of our stuff fits easily into the Soprano-sized trunk. The acceleration is exciting and the roar of the iron block V-8 never fails to put a smile on my face. I was surprised to see on Edmunds that my car has retained 50% of its value since I bought 10 years ago! The car is very comfortable to drive around town or on a long road trip. Gas mileage is good. I get high teens in town and low 20s on the highway where I cruise at 70. I get the same mpg on a 2003 Honda Odyssey van that has a V-6 and 5 speed automatic.
The speed, power and roar of the engine are best. Plus, the radio/CD player and HVAC controls are easy to use. All seats are as comfortable as the Lazy Boy in my living room. GM achieved perfection with this one.
None. The tiny new Impala SS with front wheel drive could never lure me away. I heard GM is contemplating a 400 hp rwd full size model. Bring it!
