1996 Chevrolet Impala Sedan SS 4dr Sedan


Review

I love this car! I have owned this car for 11.5 years. This car won runner up at the 2003 Super Chevy Show and many first, second, and third place trophies at other car shows and bracket racing events. Odometer is at 148,000 miles and I would not hesitate to take it on a cross country trip.


Best Features

My favorite features are bad boy looks and the powerful engine. Simple mods easily net an additional 40 horse power dyno proven!


Worst Features

None.

Review

Bought mine with 8 miles on the clock. Now has over 165K. It's been a fun car to drive. A few quirks, certainly, but overall I've really enjoyed the car. Not '96 Supra Turbo fast, but certainly enough ummph to get on the highway with no trouble and impress a few teenagers. Fantastic car for the highway. Plenty of room for the whole family. Large trunk. Reasonable back road performance, given the 4000+ lb. curb weight. The air pump (emissions control) and water pump have been headaches, but otherwise a fairly reliable car. Plan to drive this one till it drops.


Best Features

Engine power, rear wheel drive, exterior styling (particularly the wheels), rear passenger comfort, power seats, maintenance access in engine bay, availability of many aftermarket accessories


Worst Features

Reliable water pump, better factory stereo, manual tranny option (aftermarkets are available--$$$$), slightly stiffer sway bars, more supportive driver's seat (I'm tall, and the backrest hits me wrong; needs more side bolster)

Review

I have owned this car for almost eight years, and will continue to drive it until GM comes up with a sucessor. It is amazing for anything this big and heavy to be either as nimble or quick, yet comfortable as an old shoe. It is unfortunate that we are both getting older.


Best Features

All of it.


Worst Features

Windows that work. Odometer that works.

Review

It does very well on the highway. I drive it on the weekends going on long term drives. The seats are very comfortable for those long rides. To me this is the best car in the world.


Best Features

The fully loaded CD player is my favorite feature on this car.


Worst Features

I say to go back to the 1996 supper sport model because those was the best looking cars.
