2005 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
This is my first Impala, and I have to say it is the best car I have owned. Had it for a year now, and I'm still impressed. I looked at the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry, but the Impala SS gave me the best value for money. Was able to get all the bells and whistles for a great price. Plenty of room, lots of power, stylish good looks, and great gas mileage for a large sedan. It's a joy to drive. I get tons of complements on the laser blue color. It looks blue or purple depending on with angle you look at it. Great for long drive or short trips around town. I would buy another Impala.
Price for what you get compared to others in it's class. Sporty looks. Gas mileage. Sound system. Interior room. Trunk space and handling.
Rear wheel drive with horsepower worthy of the SS name. Something on par with the Dodge Charger sport models would be nice.
