Love this car

2008 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I have owned this car for 2 yrs, put 24k on it so far. Love this car, the power, torque steer. Averaging 21.7 mpg on 15 mile ea way commute to work and all my other driving, including some passes on the 1/4 mile. I think this is excellent for a 300 HP full size car. It corners and stops pretty good, though it has quite a bit of understeer when you push it to the limit - overall not bad for a full size car. Also needs to side support in the seats like the Grand Prix GXP has - these seats are too bench like. The drive by wire has some limitations as it will cut the throttle at times when I don't want it to - sharp movements that it thinks the car is out of control. I plan to own 10 yrs+

Best Features

300 HP V8, good cornering for full size, XM radio, displacement on demand, lumbar support for lower back, plenty of head room, hook to keep floor mat in place, instant economy meter in dash, tire pressure and oil life monitoring systems

Worst Features

More power (always want more power!), beefier transmission to firm up shift, side support in seats, better storage area in center console, SS emblem on the front
