GM got it right, then quit!
By soccercoach99 on


1996 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan


I have seven cars, including a Porsche Boxster, Jaguar XJ8, Honda S2000 and some winter AWD/4WD vehicles. Driving the SS is somehow very very satisfying, it lopes along, big, black, bad, and then, when called on, just puts you into the comfy seats and gets to really outrageous speeds in a blink. I'm sure that more modern vehicles beat the numbers on acceleration, etc, but blasting around a freeway on ramp at 80 to 90 in a couple of heart beats with this beast is extremely fun!

Best Features

comfort, torque, handling for a large vehicle, bullet proof feel, stability at speed, great stock engine, wheels, tires, brakes package!

Worst Features

can really tell the build quality difference from GM to the overseas marques, just little stuff -- knobs, trim, window guides, handles and such -- would be nice if they didn't break or fall off when I'm a little ham fisted.
