Chevrolet Did Their Homework Here Love It — Love The Car Hated That the Bean-counters of GM killed a great car. 2000 ill attempt of a comeback was a complete joke. GM kept building the Caprice for the Middle East but not here we got FWD piece of junk re-badged Lumina.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great All Around Car

Cons: Optispark Ignition sucks

Classic Car One Must Have — GM created a classic when they discontinued this great car. last of the full size rear whell marquee. balanced suspension and engine performance. very clean burning engine. takes turns with very little sway breaking the typical "boat" handling reputation of large cars. holds value better most cars. i can find a fault for this car except wishing GM put in a big block motor.

Pros: fun car to drive, yet hauls family. no car insurance penalty.

Cons: not for daily  transportation. too precious for that.

It Is A Must Have — This is a fantastic car to drive. It has great acceleration and top speed, good handling. It's build quality is pretty good also, the only thing wrong with it is that it squeaks when you drive, nothing more. It has needed some repairs, we replaced the entire front end, and got a new transmission recently. The paint job is a Dark Cherry Metallic and interior is grey leather. It can get alright mileage at around 22 mpg highway, and around 16-18 city. This car is so much fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Faster than most things out there

Cons: Goes through transmissions fast

Eventhough The Interior Build Quality Isin't The Best, It's Still A Great Car And I Oved Owning It — Very nice car, extremely large and comfy. Decent acceleration and handling (excellent for it's size). Exterior of the car is typical for 90's American cars. decent paint (a little pealy, or heavy texture for my taste). Body lines and molding line up with the exception of the drivers door (only a few fractions of an inch off, easily remedied. The interior though is very disappointing, all the cheap plastic rub together creating a horrible squeaking (I went throught the car with dynomat and felt to get rid of it all).On the whole it was a very reliable car with very little problems. Very comfy and fun to drive and if you kill people you can get 4 maybe five in the truck w/o having to go and dump the bodies so often.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, fast, good handling, giant ---- thumbs up

Cons: interior build quality-- tumbs down

4 Door Corvette — performance is good for the year of the car but as new cars come out to compete got to put money in the drivetrain build quality is pretty good the interior is kinda cheap but the exterior and interior look sexy gas mileage is poor and maintence is cheap it is really fun and gets alot of attention

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

Pros: big,fast,confortable and a chevy

Cons: gas mileage

Love It!!! — Great torque off the line. Needs new springs, retainers and roller rockers (1.6) cause at 100,000 miles it's getting a little tired in higher RPM range. Looking for new paint job but it isn't all that bad for a 1996 relic. Eats gas like a '96 Chevy w/ LT1 but is a blast to drive, especially with a redone suspension.

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

Pros: Pimpin driving slow, torque, sterio system, and it's an SS

Cons: crapy interior quality control and gas (but that's to be expected)

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
