    Torque. — This car has a massive amount of power for a front wheel drive car. It follows in the footsteps of a traditional 60s muscle car in terms of being a fairly standard sedan with a large engine transplanted into it. Mine is black with black heated leather seats, woodgrain trim on the dashboard, Bose speakers, and an aftermarket Flowmaster exhaust kit that the previous owner had installed. The build quality makes it hard to believe this is actually a Chevy. GM has vastly improved in the last couple of years. The styling is understated and elegant, with no cheap plastic glued to the sides. The interior has a lot of hard plastic, but it is contoured in a way that does not look cheap. The new gauges and stereo controls look like they belong in a Cadillac. I bought it with 25k miles, and I had to get the steering unit replaced at 30k miles (under warranty) because it was leaking. Other than that, I have enjoyed owning this car.

    Pros: Tons of power and torque. Even though it's a FWD automatic, it is still a lot of fun on on-ramps. The interior is very nice and spacious. The trunk is huge and there is a plastic cargo area under the back seats when you fold them down. This car is practical as well as fast, and it looks good whether it's parked next to a Silverado or a 7-Series. The gadgets are cool, such as the fuel economy readouts, remote start, and heated seats.

    Cons: There's torque steer, but that's not necessarily a bad thing if you pay attention to what you are doing. At least it tends to hurl the car toward the shoulder rather than the oncoming lane. The gas mileage is what you expect from a 5.3 L V8. I am averaging 19.2 mpg. Long term reliability remains to be seen, as the LS4 engine is a new development.

    Only American People Can Drive This. Hopefully They Don't Try To Sell It In Europe — 4 speed transmission is a piece of crap. TCC goes Off each time you hit the throttle. Poor shift quality, especially in cold conditions. Marshmallow suspensions. Poor quality of the interior. This car seems to have not been completely finished.

    Pros: Space

    Cons: Loose suspensions, crappy transmission, poor quality

    Pretty Good Family Car With Performance — Wouldn't buy off the lot, but since I got a new 2006 model for $10k I couldn't pass it up

    Pros: Good performance/pick up

    Cons: poor gas mileage

    Overall A Great Sturdy Car And Good In The Snow. Nothing Too Much To Complain About — Loved the V8 engine (very quick to its full potential). Enjoyed the comfortable leather seats along with them being heated. Nice to turn on the radio and hear how powerful it is. Braking and handling is average to a little above. It's not your G-6 type car that can turn on the dime but you gotta remember that the V8 Impala SS is a heavy car and your above average family car (sedan). I used it only for going to and from work. Some could use it for sport performance and some could use it for running errands and then "garaging" it the rest of the time. Just depends what you will use it for. Pictures are coming. It's dark outside and I work the midnight shift. I will get them later today.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks like a cop car and many people stopped me at the gas station to tell me "that car is sick", meaning very cool :)  . Has the "get up and go". Is very comfortable to drive on the highway. Has heated seats which are excellent in winter.  Remote Starter is a big asset. A lot of leg room up front and in back.

    Cons: Blind spots when trying to see traffic at a "Y" in the busy road. You can sometimes hear road noise even with your windows up and radio on at a half decent volume (some people would probably be fine with it). Had it in the garage a couple times for not so major things. One was the water pump being replaced which was under warranty.
    The other time it was in the shop was to replace a Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor.

    This car handles well and the speed is amazing. Its extremely comfortable and the interior quality is beautiful. I have ZERO complaints on this car and will buy one again.
    Front Seats Ranked 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 worse.
    "Quality and comfort."
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 better.
    "The charger is a bit larger and can hold just a bit more stuff than the Impala."
