2012 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I love this car. Bought it in 2013 with 16K miles and now have 48K on it. I've read many reviews suggesting that the Impala has lackluster handling. I wonder if these reviewers have really driven an LTZ. It has GM's FE3 suspension which is also standard on SS Camaros of the same year. This car handles well, but the ride is a little stiff. One big improvement would not be using the Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires.
While these tires have worn well, especially for the lead foot driving I do, they are a true hazard on wet roads. One of the worst wet handling tires I've ever owned.
Oh, and the Bose sound system...Wow!

Best Features

Horse Power, remote start, Bose Sound, MPG for the H.P. you get. Good solid build

Worst Features

Ditch the Goodyear RS-a tires. GM if you're going to put the stiff FE3 suspension on the rear of the car, go ahead and stiffen up the front. Weight distribution is heavy towards the front and you can really feel it.
