1996 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan


I bought my Impala SS new and it has
been my daily driver. Now has 83K
miles and I have never had any
significant problem with it. The 5.7
liter engine makes lots of torque. It
has huge 255/50R17 tires, but you can
gently goose it and shred those 200
dollar g-force tires anytime you are
in the mood. Or, touch the
accelerator gently and let the low
rumble from your exhaust shake up the
Toyota in the next lane. Handles and
stops well for a 4200 pound car. An
excellent highway cruiser, stable yet
responsive. Very practical, with lots
of interior room, a large trunk and
normal insurance rates. I
consistently get 20 MPG with regular

Best Features

The 1996 Impala SS is a throw back to the 60's muscle cars, but with modern braking, handling, and comfort.

Worst Features

This is a large car by today's standards, and it doesn't fit well into most parking spaces.
