LOVE MY IMPALA SS
Pros: way it hugs the road and of course heated seats and automatic start
Cons: the wipers stopping point-in front of drivers eyeswent from an SUV to an impala and was worried but I love it
Nice car but the seat comfort is very bad ,It seem like the bottom of the seat is to short. I hate taking long rides in the car. It's roomy enough for 2 people but not a family of 4 even though it has 5 seatbelts. The power is good execpt for when you get on it you can loose control of the car because of the power tork in the steering.
Advice: BUY IT!Lots of spunk! I like the interior layout, simple but sophisticated.
Pros: leather seats
Cons: No auto dim interior mirror
Advice: Try it you'll Like itThis is the third Impala I have owned. They are a great trouble free car.
Pros: The safey of traction contol
Cons: That one would have to step up to the Impala SS model to out perform the Maxima
Advice: You can not get more bang for your buck then selecting an Impala( Model LT3, LTZ,SS)The seats appear a little to firm at first, but I quicky adjust to them and actually now I perfer the. The 3.9 Liter in the LT3 produce really good power and the car performed well in rainy conditions and night. In short I was sold on a one week rental of an Impala . It woulds take something speical for mo go back to a Toyota or Nissan
Pros: Interior comfort
Cons: Some interior plastic.
Advice: Be sure to test drive and consider this one.I am just over 6'4' and I found this car to be one of the most comfotable that I have ever driven. It is much easier to get into than many other models I have tried. It was very comfortable on some long trips (8+ hrs) and the handling is excellent.
Pros: The horsepower of this vehicle is awesome
Cons: Torque steer is excessive
Advice: Drive it.The 06 Impala SS is an impressive ride. The fit and finish is excellent. The horsepower is unbelivable for a sedan. The trunk reminds you of a pick up bed. The ride is very firm. Smooth roads are enjoyable, rough roads are not. The fuel economy is very good averaging around 26 mpg. The DOD feature that GM is now adding to the V8's works excellent.
