"Just recently purchased my 2006 impala ss and LOVE IT!! Car clings to the rode better than i expected. Other than a few issues with the tire monitor system and the brakes, its flawless. The 5.3 emits a nice throaty sound comparable to the camaros and firebirds. With the car i get about 16-20 in v-8 mode and a crazy 26-34 in 4 cylinder mode. The only problem is i can't seem to get this lead foot of mine in check.
The only thing i wish i could get on this car is an awd or rwd drive system (with a manual). I would recommend this car to anyone of any age group."
"Pros: Quiet, nice ride, firm handling, feels like driving a Toyota, pleasant, stylish interior. Terrific acceleration, good fuel economy. Very reliable, no problems now have 23K miles.
Cons: Front seats are uncomfortable, lumbar support sticks in my back and I can't retract it far enough to be comfortable. A right-front-seat passenger complained as well, so I know it's not me! The Impala gains speed going down a slight grade, it's such a light and fast car. My Toyota Highlander didn't do that."
