Used Car of the Day: 2017 Chevrolet SS

used car of the day 2017 chevrolet ss

I'll admit it -- the one chance I got to drive a Chevrolet SS, I was a bit disappointed, mostly because the manual transmission felt a bit too rubbery for me. That said, I still love the idea of this car -- a full-size performance sedan with a manual transmission and a big honkin' V8.

Maybe I should drive on over to Michigan and give this 2017 Chevrolet SS a shot. Maybe the car is better than I remember.

The seller here is the original owner, and the car apparently has been garaged in the winter. The seller claims that a "technician from the original development team at GM" has maintained the car. Not only that, but the seller says he or she was the vehicle dynamics engineer for GM. So the seller is an SS expert -- and there's a unique Easter egg awaiting the buyer.

Outside of some custom stitching, the tires (Michelin 4S's), and a few other items, the car is stock. It has been tracked and has some minor chips.

The seller asks $48,000 and the car has a tick over 39K miles on it.

Check it out here.

    Best car I've ever owned. Magnaride allowed it to handle like a much smaller car. Aesthetics a little meh, but amazing acceleration and very nice interior. Owned for five years and not a single issue. And rather unique. I saw fewer than 10 driving the Chicago area the entire time I owned it.

    Favorite way to show Mustangs my tail lights.

  • William Piper Awful exterior styling…would be a hard pass for that alone. Perhaps for $60k, but $100 large? For this?
  • Sgeffe Gee, a hybrid can have some actual horsepower behind it! With a four-pot ICE as the generator!See what Stellantis can do, and with 1.3 liters, Honda?! (Whose “Accord” will be spanked by a PRIUS!! 🤬🙄)
  • Kcflyer I get the argument to not compete in the sedan market in order to maximize short term profits on SUV's and Trucks. But what happens if Toyota ever gets serious and builds a full line of light and heavy duty trucks? What I'm saying is maybe Ford should continue to build the best vehicles they can in this and other mainstay segments. To paraphrase the last good Dem president, not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Even if the Japanese don't eventually bankrupt Ford, Tesla just might. I understand their sedans sell quite well.
  • Kcflyer Nice looking ride
  • Kcflyer If it was as likely to be reliable as the Lexus LS I would look to pick up a used low mileage unit someday. But I would not trust this to be long term reasonable to own.
