1996 Chevrolet Impala Sedan SS 4dr Sedan


Review

Being 24 years old, buying this car was
the best purchase decision of my life.
It was the one car that had everything
I was looking for. It had a torque-
monster V8, rwd and it wasn't a truck
or a Camaro/Mustang that you see
everyone driving nowadays. It's
distinctive and will always turn heads
and receive thumbs up on the road or at
the track.


Best Features

By far the best feature is the engine. It's low-end torque has the ability to roast its rear tires from a stand still.


Worst Features

Its relatively low horsepower is apparent when the hood is raised. A restrictive intake and exhaust system is all that holds this beast from blowing your tire budget.

Review

The 94-96 Impala SS is the last of the
rear wheel drive supercar sedans.

The current retail value posted is not
realistic, the average retail value on
one of these cars is several thousand
higher in the case of an average
condition '94 and as much as double
for a pristine '96 with low miles. How
did you arrive at such a low retail
value?


Best Features

Fast, faster.....dearly beloved.


Worst Features

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.

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.
