1996 Chevrolet Impala Sedan SS 4dr Sedan


Review

Have enjoyed owning & driving it for nearly 13 years, transmission & engine have been flawless, water system/radiator/cooling required replacement, been thru 3 sets of tires, still turns heads. I am very proud to own such fine machinery that gets rarer yearly, get offers to sell all the time, have driven across country north-south & east-west, makes for great made-in-America advertising, insured as 4-door Caprice but is actually a Super Sport (no complaints), passes state emissions/safety tests without fail, plan on keeping all the way


Best Features

Awesome power, beckoning looks, engine, solid mechanicals, ease & price for repairs, longevity, roominess, handling at high speeds, wide tires, no road noise, engine purrs at 2000 RPMs at 70MPH, uses regular unleaded, stainless steel exhaust, LT1 engine, chassis/rear diff


Worst Features

Body assembly quality, the famous rear diff gasket, speaker quality, odometer, door window glides (failed on all four windows), turn signal lever robustness, steering at low speed, engine heats in heavy slow traffic, wide tires slick in rain (but love 'em), spoiled me against all competitors

Review

A few replacement parts here and there. Usual upkeep as with any car. I get 19-21 mpg (still) highway miles. I love that it still looks good at its age. Alloy wheels could be replaced but that's another story. It has truly been a great car. I have owned this car longer than any other car. I plan to drive it till the wheels fall off.


Best Features

Leather seats. 350 LT1 Corvette engine V8, the way it handles


Worst Features

I wish it was not rear wheel drive.

Review

I bought my SS with 89000 miles on it in 2005. This is a great car. Took it on trips no problem. Everybody always asking me do I want to sell it. The best big body car ever made. Runs real strong and lasts with the best of them.


Best Features

Big body, stock rims, and all the space inside the car.


Worst Features

None
