The fastest car I have ever owned.

This car fits the bill a throw back to those old American land yachts but with corvette power you can slow like a caddy but when someone thinks their overtaking a malibu or impala then you embarrass them badly with how far you leave them in the dust so quick. the few draw backs are the Bluetooth connection. how quickly the doors lock after exit and how the sunroof doesn't close when the car is turned off before you exit. but if you want a car you can impose your will on the road with this is the car and most parts are relatively cheap in the chevy tradition. 4 brake pads oil change axle oil change filter and wheel alignment with me supplying the parts was only 150 labor and was only 150

Best Sports Sedan Ever

I have owned two different G8GT's in the past this they are great cars. The Chevy SS is the final evolution of the G8 GXP with modern technology, chassis tuning, and questionable modern styling (the G8 styling is better). 2016 Cars come fully loaded and there are only 3 options: sunroof or not, manual trans or auto, full spare or tire inflator. EVERYTHING ELSE is STANDARD. Lane departure warning, remote start (auto trans only), collision avoidance, 415 HP LS3 V8, HUD. Even at full new price, this car is a bargain. And total sleeper. People will think you are driving a normal Malibu which could be good or bad depending on your perspective. No one will ever make a car like this again.
