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.

    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.

  • Rochester I noticed the only time you used the word "Mustang" was in the opening sentence, LOL. It's all good, should be just Mach-e anyway.
  • Add Lightness As a kid, it was Germany, then Japan, then Korea, now China. Italy was and still is, the maker of needy mistresses.
  • Add Lightness So now new Mach-E buyers have the choice whether they want to save $8,000 or become indentured the finance companies, possibly for life.Buy what you can afford, even if that means buying tools and learning new life skills.
  • Dale I like it. Not sure when we will be in the market for a 2nd EV, but this looks like a nice hatchback.
  • FreedMike Cute car. If it's priced right it could be a winner.
