The SS is Back

Vehicle

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Chevy is on the right track this car deserves the SS tag. This car is such an upgrade I traded in my 2003 LS model to be driving the SS again. The car has great power. The options available with it fully loaded are plenty for most people, and the best part is they have managed to keep it at a low price point compared to other luxury sedans. After comparing to many, the SS stands up to ones that are much higher priced. They body is sleek and the interior as well is classy with great controls and availability. For those who knock the gas mileage (which is not that bad) should not buy a V8. You pay a little for the power and know that going in. This is as happy as I've been since my old 64 SS.

'06 Impala, the best yet

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Purchased this vehicle in September '05. My wife & I may keep this vehicle FOREVER. It's FUN (a little torque steer on hard accel can be forgiven & easy to get used to), Laser Blue is BEAUTIFUL; lots of looks & comments; all good+. It can get good gas mileage but it's hard not to 'jump on it' once in awhile which doesn't help mileage. Engine & exhaust sound fabulous. My brother purchased a new Mustang GT (which is also fun to drive) but he & I both prefere the SS if you are driving any distance. I would rate the Bose sound system at an 8 (very good, not great). More fun to listen to the exhaust sound (especially with the sunroof open but OK without).

Pretty good so far!

Review

The interior is much what I expected. The V8 and associated rumble are great! I'm not impressed with the handling or braking, but I'm kinda chalking that up to its being "just another Impala" - I don't mind terribly. It's fascinating to watch the driver display go from 4cyl to 8cyl. XM Radio is pretty cool, as are the 36! presets. Ditto moonroof, OnStar, steering wheel controls. Can't stand the auto door locks.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I have enjoyed everything about my new Impala. It rides smooth, accelerates when I need, and is an eye catcher. All my neighbors were impressed.

Great car love the fact that it runs on gas or E85. The DIC is a very nice feature. Very quite and smooth at all speeds.

Disappointed

2006 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Having owned the 2000 Impala I was excited about the new body style of the 2006. While I enjoy the comfort of the car and the drive performance, I have experienced nothing but problems with the ABS/Traction Control System. I have been back and forth to the dealership at least five times and they have replaced the electronic braking module and the rear wheel harness attempting to remedy the problem. To no avail the problem is still occuring intermittently. I love my car, but I hate the problems that I am experiencing. Looks like I will have to trade it in sooner rather than later. Looks like GM is going to lose a valuable customer.

Impala

2006 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Performance is excellent. I hit 80 before I realized it. It felt like I was at 60, given noise and road feel. Gas mileage for the trip from Dover, Delaware to Somerville New Jersey was very close to 30 MPG. In fact it exceeded the EPA estimate of 27 MPG for that vehicle. Build quality, fit and finish is clearly equal or superior to any similarly priced import. This car has the leather seats, which are very comfortable. The quality of workmanship from design to engineering to assembly and dealer prep that went into this car is impressive. The trunk is large and well thought out. Hardware is out of the way, so it doesn't interfere with cargo or luggage. To summarize - WOW!!!!!!

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

I traded in a 99 STS. I'm very happy with my new SS. Power, comfort is all there. I had torque steer B4 you learn to drive with it. Sideview mirrors are much more aero than the ones on the STS.Side curtins great saftey improvment. Engine very smooth and much quicker than the STS. Don't like the trim around the dash and the unfinished door jams,still a nice car.

Review

I've had my Laser Blue SS for about a month now, and in my opinion it's a great car. It's very comfortable, quiet, and rattle free. With 93 Octane gas I've been averaging about 19 mpg with mixed driving, and the motor is very strong and smooth. FYI this car will also fit two car seats and a booster seat in the back. So far, the build quality / fit and finish seem great. I haven't noticed any defects, and you don't hear the road or the wind much at all. The car handles great for a large 4-door sedan, it really seems to stick to the road well. Also, the Bose stereo sounds great, and the MP-3 player input is very convienent.

Not Happy

2006 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Life long Chevy driver, I am very disapointed with my new car. In to dealer twice already (1500 miles) vibration and ticking from the engine when brake is applied at a stop light or sitting in traffic. "New engine" so what, make it right before you send it out. 3.8 V6 was better. Service people are great and I believe they are trying, but I do not like driving this car at this point. Hopefully after further trips in to dealer and more aggravation they will be able to fix it. This is not what one expects when buying a new car!
