The Car that Could Have Been, But Isn't

2008 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Rented a brand-new Impala SS for a recent two-hundred mile trip. With a nice exterior styling and a roaring V8, this car could have been a huge hit for GM. However, it lacks the refinement, features and quality that are present in even entry-level import sedans. Despite its sport pretentions the car's steering and suspension are numbed with novacaine. Transmission lacks the auto-stick feature and is neither sporty nor refined. Wind noise is pronounced The interior lacks any character and feels generations behind both in quality and in content of my 06 Civic. The quality throughout is inconsistent. Overall, the car has a feel of being designed by the bean counters for the rental lots.

Favorite Features

exterior styling, roaring V8

Suggested Improvements

interior design, quality of materials, steering, suspension, transmission, unsupportive seats, wind noise, quality of stereo sound
