1996 Chevrolet Impala Sedan SS 4dr Sedan


Review

I was lucky to find this car. Low miles 75,000. No rust, all orginal. There is no other ride like a big solid RWD car. I know my wife and kid are safe. Better gas mileage that her minivan on the road. More comfort, hauls our boat like a dream.


Best Features

The corvette inspired LT-1 engine.


Worst Features

The placement of the optispark system under the engine where it can get wet. Water and electical charges don't mix. The General make a error of that one.

1996 Chevrolet Impala Sedan SS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Impala SS new and it has been my daily driver. Now has 83K miles and I have never had any significant problem with it. The 5.7 liter engine makes lots of torque. It has huge 255/50R17 tires, but you can gently goose it and shred those 200 dollar g-force tires anytime you are in the mood. Or, touch the accelerator gently and let the low rumble from your exhaust shake up the Toyota in the next lane. Handles and stops well for a 4200 pound car. An excellent highway cruiser, stable yet responsive. Very practical, with lots of interior room, a large trunk and normal insurance rates. I consistently get 20 MPG with regular gas.


Best Features

The 1996 Impala SS is a throw back to the 60's muscle cars, but with modern braking, handling, and comfort.


Worst Features

This is a large car by today's standards, and it doesn't fit well into most parking spaces.
