Puke.
I remember a reviewer from a major automotive mag said its basically the American muscle sound but without the speed because its geared too high. Supposedly it will do 100 MPH in 2nd gear.

Of course it's real.
Matt puke back at you. Is this reviewer your god? Only a puke would pass offensive judgement from some review without finding out for himself.I need it to be almost new for reliability and warranty coverage, and I can't afford a new SHO. I need a big 4 door and I got one with a v8 because I wanted it to be somewhat sporty just as I did with the Lumina LTZ. Its 0-60 is in the low 6s, not bad for carrying 5 people and luggage, in that trunk the size of rhode Island, and getting over 30 mpg in the process.

I actually kinda like these, although I hear torque steer pwns. Sure, another gear in the tranny might help - but probably not necessary since the thing already gets decent highway mileage. These are parallel models to the Grand Prix (or whatever they call it), correct? I remember reading an article saying they used a larger tire size on the fronts to combat torque steer (on the Pontiacs). Is this the case for the Chevy?

It has 235/50/18 I don't find the torque steer a problem. It's a little more than the EGT had but not bad considering all the hp.

I know if I put it up It's subject to neg feedback, that's fair but do we need to insult peoples' taste in cars? nobody likes every car for sure. It's easy to say you don't like large sedans or whatever, but I need one. I would love to have a Ferrari instead. If I have to get a large sedan I want it sporty, and a new SHO is twice the price, how can you fault it? Plus I'm getting older and the creature comforts start looking attractive now. The heated seats prevent back injuries by heating the back on the way to work LOL. I had a W body for 5 years before this one and it was the most reliable car I ever had. W body owners do tend to buy another.
