I traded my 96 Caprice LT1 for the SE-
R about four months ago. The
complaints I have is poor gas milage
on the hwy, it's very close to the 96
Caprice with a V8 in it!
The suspension keeps the car glued to
the road and is smooth as long as the
road is smooth. Driving over cracks
and bumps in the road that's a
completely different story.
Lastly, the engine lacks power at
higher (over 90mph) speeds.
Overall the car is a blast to drive,
comes fully loaded and the floor mats
with the SE-R logo, 7 speaker sound
system, rear heat and heated mirrors
are included in the base price. This
car would be sweet with rear wheel
The front of the vehicle looks hot.
The interior is very nice with leather
steering wheel and chrome door
handles, looks more expensive than it
is. Seats are very nice and hold the
driver glued in place.
There is no rear seat leg room and no
light in the glove box! The rear heat
was a nice idea but unfortunately it
doesn't work very well, needs stronger
blower fun. Also a bigger fuel tank
would be nice.
