I have now owned my 2006 Impala SS for forty months and have to say that it is absolutely one of the very best cars that I have ever owned. It is blindingly fast, exceedingly comfortable, handles very well, quiet, solid, free of problems and generally of extreme quality. I have had very few problems with the car and which are limited to a bad battery which was replaced under warranty and a defective power steering hose/clamps, also done under warranty. The dealer service experience has also been unparalleled with polite, competent and thoroughly professional service each and every time I have taken the car in for service. I have been most impressed with the level of professionalism.
The speed and responsiveness are breathtaking! The fit and finish are without parallel. The Bose sound system is without peer. The solidity of both the exterior and the interior are the equal of any car on the road. Generally, the car gives the impression of extreme quality.
I would prefer a factory navigation system to OnStar.
