A What? — Just an all around beautiful car unique luxury with power very comfortable car easy to relax in very spacious very nice factory options stereo and the embroidered leather is very nice too. The factory wheels arent bad either the vehicle in general has great potential.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: custom interior and exterior moldings

Huge Impala Legend — Extreamily loud, wich I love, dangerous in curves, but it is a dream with to much torque, so roomy and cool, for a 2.5 tons car, great suspension, very easy to repair, motor at least, but the widenes has made lost mirrors one to many times

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: so sexy and savage

Cons: window controlers

Great Styling, But Not For Everyone. Big V8 With Great Low End Torque. — Classic styling with Gen II LT1 small block V8. Seriously de-tuned from the factory, but with bolt ons the car will run low 14s/high 13s. With a heads and cam package the LT1 will power this behemoth down the 1/4 in the 12s.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It will get you looks and is capable of schooling cars half its size.

Cons: None.

Good All-around Sports Sedan — The most suprising thing about the car is its balance. It has great straight-line speed, but the handling is world class for a 4000lb. car. This is despite the fact that the power steering is very light with a slower steering ratio. A manual transmission would also be welcome. Yet the car looks great, sounds great with that mellow V8 rumble and provides amazing performance.

Pros: Plenty of power, great handleing, low key look, drives like a 4 door Corvette

Cons: No manual transmission, light power steering

Fun Fun Fun Fun!!!! Yeehaw — I've owned my SS for about 6 years now. I bought it with 8500 mi on it and now has 44,000. I recently did ALOT of high performance mods to my car. I researched for about 6 months before I started my mods. I like everything about this car overall and what I didn't like I just made better. The stock performance for a 4,200 lb car was great. There were some issues with the build that was questionable however there are fixes for alot of them.(ie. odometer, window tilting, water in MAF) I didn't buy this car to gripe that it can drink some fuel. I bought it to have fun! Really if you stop to think about it, after first buying my car I did 3 mods - Hypertech download, air intake, exhaust. I was getting around 23 miles on the hwy. Now for a 4,200lb high performance LT1 - Not to bad! I have alot of hands on with my car not to mention my younger brother and mother had one also. Between theirs and mine I can say I'm pretty knowledgeable with 96 Impala SS.

Pros: There are to many positives for me to list here. My SS is just an overall fun car to drive.

Cons: To me there are no negatives. If anyone has any questions on their negs and how to fix, pls ask

Modern Muscle — If you want a traditional muscle car (no turns here) then the impala is on of the best. Great stock platform to work with and the small block can be swapped with anything more modern if you should like.

Pros: Classic looks, loads of parts.

Cons: Heavy, expensive to maintain.

Big Bang For The Buck — Purchased this car new in 1996 use it for 40,000 well enjoyed miles :) plenty of road trips with the family all around great car. Now enjoys it's semi retirement sitting on jackstands in the garage. Hope to take it out soon now that the snow has melted :)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Performs when it needs to even with a trunk full luggage

Cons: Front seats can use a little more stuffing a lot of road noise but other than that great car.
