2005 Chevy Impala SS

by pketch:      Apr 3, 2008

Product Rating: 5.0 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Ease to work on. Ride. Power. Fuel economy. Standard amenities
Cons: Lack of little things like memory seats, auto climate control. Placement of Trip Information.
The Bottom Line: Strong buy

Got lucky. Bought a one owner with 30050 documented miles and still under the factory warranty . Serviced by the selling dealer; Mobil One since new, you don't just find this type of car everyday. The ride and the power stand out as something that should be noted. The tried and true 3800 Super Charged power plant is as strong and efficient as it always been. The drive train is likewise. Being these two have been paired together as far back as I can remember, I felt very comply knowing what I was getting into. The styling caught my eye as I parosed the used car lot that had it. The standard options were impressive but could have offered just a tad bit more in my opinion. It would have been nice to see memory seats, auto climate controls and a drop down passenger mirror. The trip information read out could have been placed in a better place. As I read others reviews I have noticed only one of the concerns. That would be the rub of the front valance while going over deep drainage curbs. I contributed this to the lowered clearance and the tuned suspension. All of which support a very tight handling unit. The rest I have not noticed. So far so good. The styling I liked up until I pulled up next to a newer one. Mind you it is not that I dislike it it is just that the newer ones look more like what one would expect a SS to look like. There could have been better badging indication the SS
