    I just cant accept a SS badge on a car that isnt RWD (or AWD like the TB) and carrying a V8 under the hood.

    that model completely slipped my mind hence the LT1-LT4 comment
    You say that as though the new Impalas have less hp.

    08/09 White Impala SS is on the short list in the event the wife's SLS becomes unreliable. Hopefully not too soon!

    I agree with all on the terrible torque steer comments. Reminds me of our 99 LHS. But that car was complete crap, with the bonus of bad torque steer.

    I find that going from my grandfather's SS to my STS is like going from, well, a Chevrolet to a Cadillac. The Seville is a 20x better driving car, and definitely a more comfortable car to ride in for long distances. As nice as the Imp is, I would never want to have one.

    I will say, the car is much better built, and uses much nicer materials than the Seville does. It also has a great exhaust note and a good, reliable engine. However, compared to Seville it's just... ehh.

    Impala SS is pretty quick with the 5.3 engine in it. I raced once when i had my 745i Sport and that car had balls.
