I love my LS7. There are a couple known issues that need to be taken care of, but once it’s fixed...a giant, torquey V8 that really loves to rev up over 7000 thanks to the lightweight rotating assembly is a thing of beauty. And sadly, something that will probably never happen again in a production car.

The LS engines are the antithesis to DOHC. There is simply no compelling argument in favor of DOHC over an LS engine. Read more

I often see the SS referred to as a sales flop. I was under the impression that Chevy only brought a small number of these to the states each year and they all sold. Sure, it’s still a small number of cars for a company like GM, but the SS was a niche vehicle from the start, and with Holden’s death I don’t think there Read more

Oh brother, now go do the MT videos by Lieberman, Cammisa and Pobst on the SS and the SS reviews in R/T, C&D et. al. The steering is one of the SS’s best attributes aside from wheel control/shock tuning. Dude, the Vsport is an excellent chassis but some of the stuff you’re saying regarding the SS is just dumb.

Strange, I’ve owned my SS for 5 years and the chassis is set up to track or cruise and many of us do track ours. It actually weighs slightly less than your V-Sport and to be honest, the interior materials are just as good as yours. Also, the MyLink infotainment shames your Cue, not that I bought based on that fact. Read more

Correct, GM spent exactly $0 on advertising for these. The owners manual is a plain black and white affair. Everyone always says “They didn’t sell well"; they were never intended to the import numbers were 2400-3000/ year and weren't ever going to be any higher

A lot of people hate on the SS because it’s got an underwhelming look. I personally like that in a car, because it attracts less attention. When i drive, I drive for my own pleasure, feeling the G-forces in a corner, getting pressed in to a seat under acceleration, and feeling weightless over a crest. This car is a CP Read more

It’s not my cup of tea, but I don’t think the price is really far out of the realm of being reasonable.

I think Im going NP. The 6spds are easily eclipsing 30 and low mileage ones constantly go for near 50. Also, my brother in law, just had CarMax give him $24k for a stock14 Auto with 70k last month.

Hey, you said some stuff I agree with, and some other stuff I don’t, but I HAVE to argue that, with 486 rwhp (compared to 415 CRANK horsepower stock), your ‘butt dyno’ is REALLY going to feel that difference!  We’re talking at least 100 horsepower difference here.

To whom though? Car enthusiasts will know what the car is, and non-enthusiasts don’t care. I say this as a G8 owner. I’ve had the car for four years now and I’ve never once had to explain what it is. I get the occasional complement from passersby, but other than that it just doesn’t come up.

My G8 GT was cheap, it comfortably holds 2 car seats and a pile of gear, it’s RWD, has ~400 hp, and doesn’t have the stigma of driving a caddy or the repair bills of a BMW. Read more

The SS is powered by an LS3 V8. The CTS V-Sport... isn’t. Cars are about more than the numbers they can put up on a skidpad, which is something I’d wish more people would realize.

Oof. Painful to read. You need to realize that there are some people that *want* their performance sedan to look like a boring Malibu. Read more

As a proud Australian, I voted NP on this car.

Also, Holden were obliged to produce the SS for Chevrolet and were only ever going to be a limited run regardless, hence why it was never advertised anywhere and had nothing to do with the demise of GM’s Australian Manufacturing.

The decision to stop making cars in Read more
