Bargain of the year
By Don Nelson on
2005 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
The Impala SS may not be a head turner but in terms of the "bang for your buck" factor it's tough to beat (especially considering discounts being offered on soon to be "old style" 2005's). It's comfortable, quick and has all the amenities. You can get an SS with an MSRP of over $30K for $23-24K. It may not be worth $30K but for $23K it's a steal. Critics have blasted the Impala. Check it out and make up your own mind!
Supercharged 3.8 quickness, subtle SS styling cues, 17 in. wheels, luxury car amenities such as xm radio, heated seats, great visiblity, comfort - head and leg room for tall (I'm 6-6") drivers, despite relatively compact outside dimensions.
The glove box. Sounds silly but check it out you'll see what I mean! Hardly a deal killer.
