    08 Ss, Bland Buisness Cruiser Or Sleeper In Disguise? —

    2008 Impala SS, mine came with the Heated leather seats, otherwise its just the 'basic' SS, no sunroof or bose stero. Now, Performance, one cannot ask more for then what the SS gives, 303 HP standard out of the V8, its very peppy and I can say she has no problem getting you to 60 in under 6 seconds. Downfall, is the torque steer apparent from the FWD application, everyone wishes this car was RWD, but the FWD does have its advantages for northern winter driving. Build Quality, I would rate average to above average, I know some SS owners who have a bit 'rattly' of interior, personally mine is just fine, I think it varies, but its definitly not a constant build factor for interior parts, exterior wise, no complaints. Apperance, well its about as boring as boring gets for general looks, but I prefer it that way, this car can scream down the highway but thanks to its non-attractive looks, even the cops don't seem to give this car much attention. Ownership costs, so far maitenance has been nothing more than needing new rotors/brakes as the stock rotors are definitly not built to stop 4000lbs of american steel on hard stops constantly, generally aftermarket rotors fix this problem pretty easily. Gas mileage for me, averages 18-20mpg city, and up to 32mpg highway, thanks to the DOD on the V8. Fun factor, The V8 sound and the power behind this car adds to the fun-factor 10 fold once you drive this car, she does have some body roll in her, for anyone who buys an SS I would HIGHLY recommend the addition of STB bars and braces for the STB bars.

    Pros: Power, Roomy, Comfortable, Price

    Cons: Looks, Still heavy, Wrong wheel drive.

    Was My Rental Car In Hawaii — Great Horsepower a 5.3L V8 it has heated seats in it too which I also liked. This was my rental car in Hawaii and i never expected it is a impala SS. The gas milage so poor and is expected for a V8 engine like that.

    Pros: A V8 Engine Great power

    Cons: Gas Guzzling

    Drove It A Week; Will Never Again — Just took the car on a 700 mile road trip. What a horrible car! Sure, it goes fast, but it doesn't hold the lane well, turns like a truck, has outdated controls, uncomfortable seats, and lacks basics like even a thermometer. I hated this car. Poorly designed machines like this are why Detroit fails to compete with imports that look, handle, and feel better.

    Pros: fast

    Cons: everything else about this car

    Love It — I can not get behind the wheel of this car without grining ear to ear. I pray for every light I approach to turn red just in case the car next to me might thing that he's faster. I've never lost.

    Pros: Unheard of acceleration from a family sedan in this price range.

    Cons: I fell bad for my tires :) and wish it had auto. climate control.

    A Pretty Sweet Ride — This one of the oly cars I like. Its very roomy, has good performance and fuel economy. Im not a huge fan f the color (white) but hey its still a good looking car. The interior is nice and spacious and the trim is classy, but kinda lacking in the cup holders area, it only has 2... all in all a great car

    Pros: good fuel economy, handles well, roomy interior

    Cons: missing cup holders, base stereo kinda lacks...

    2008 Impala — One of the best cars I have ever owned. It is big, luxurious, looks great, and lots of power + good gas mileage for a full size car. We got the LT2 for a few more options, the leather is a must!! The active fuel management system allows you to choose the 3.9L engine and still get good MPG.

    Pros: See the review

    Cons: None

    Best Car I've Ever Owned!! — I loveeeee my new car. I've had it about a month, and I just love it so much!! It rides well, has a great stereo system with XM radiio and On Star. I picked Silver Metallic color and Black for the Interior. This car has the "Flex Fuel" option. You can put that E-84 or whatever that Ethanol fuel is called, but I've not tried that yet. I've not had any problems with it yet, and I'm hoping that I don't for a long time!

    Pros: XM Radio, ON Star, and it also has side door airbags..for extra safety

    Cons: none

    Very Impressive Performance For A Family Sedan! — A very solid domestic family sedan in the $20,000 range that can either be a hopped-up runner or road-warrior.handling and brakes are great and the acceleration is extremely responsive, especially in town! I would highly recommend this car to anyone in need of a reliable vehicle for any circumstances.

    Pros: engine, transmission, interior, materials, economy, creature comforts, overall appearance,
    affordability

    Cons: hard to see out of back window when backing up (high seat-backs), accelerator break-in
    period

    Fairly Decent Car, But Hardly An Inspiring Performer. — There are better choices out there, as the Impala feels dated compared to just about every other midsize and fullsized sedans offered by the competition. While there is nothing terribly bad about this sedan, there is nothing exceptional about this sedan. The interior packaging is lousy, while the drivability is decent overall. The ride is good, but far from the best in class. The handling is mushy, as well as the braking performance. The engine sounds quiet at cruise and idle, but is very thrashy during acceleration.

    Pros: Styling doesn't offend, quietness at idle and cruising, Optional 3.9L engine

    Cons: Lackluster handling, braking, acceleration, rear seat room, seat contouring, Good for rental fleets, but hardly awe inspiring for the consumer.
