You're right, plenty of first drives, but no full reviews yet. A video in today's paper had the the Falcon XR6 Turbo up against the Commodore SS in a 1/4 mile drag, on a sticky track.
Falcon = 4.9 seconds, SS = 5.00 seconds even. Falcon = 362 hp, SS = 348 hp.

So,according to Ozstrat, the SS Sedan runs the 1/4 mile in 5.00 seconds.

I was wrong.
Ozstrat is an educated auto enthusiast.
The SS Sedan is best auto deal of all time and I can easily look past the lack of a manual transmission option.

I am driving over to the nearest Chevy dealership right now to hand a dealer a certified check for $45,000.
Firstly 5.0 = 5 = 5.00 Sorry it confused you.

And no, I am not saying the Chevy SS will do the qtr mile in 5 seconds. What is wrong with your comprehension? Were my words too big for the nugget that masquerades as your brain?
I am saying a lesser version with 55 LESS horsepower will do the qtr mile in 5.00 seconds.
Did you understand that? Too many zero's to get around?
Do you not wonder what an extra 55 hp might do?
Of course I may have confused qtr mile with 0-100 klm/hr, but that should be obvious to even a hillbilly.

Folks, this is pretty silly. Just because someone confuses 1/4 mile times with zero-to-sixty does not necessarily negate everything else they have to say nor brands them as an idiot. Can't we try to assume that people have GOOD intent here on this board, so that everyone can make their own decisions on whether this vehicle will fit their needs? I have been lurking here for a while, and I have to say, the back-and-forth and negativity is taking a toll. Thanks for listening.

I thought it was funny. :tempted:

And it wasn't my point but I'm stunned you thought it valid.

And your less than over-hyper-roided response may indicate you've learned to settle down a bit and perhaps do think sjaroslo's point is truly valid.

Maybe this place will be a little better to hang around now. :hope:

I expected some backlash for my typo...thanks for the support from those who got the gist of the message.

Meanwhile, here is a quote from the Oz version of Top Gear magazine on the HSV Clubsport R8, which is very similar to the SS.
"Another area of noticeable improvement is ride quality. Aluminum lower control arms at the front, and retuned springs & dampers, remove much of the Clubsport's nervousness and busy ride over rough services.
Also reduced is the tendency to lean heavily on the outside front into & through corners, which means this Clubsport is less cumbersome, more adjustable and yet more stable. These are not minor changes - they have a major impact on driver confidence and enjoyment. The Gen-F sets new benchmarks in ride & handling for HSV, with a maturity and poise befitting more expensive, premium European sports sedans".

SS makes the 300 look like an ugly offspring from the hood.


How it drives

Holden: Surprisingly responsive for such a big car, it changes direction well and feels well-balanced. Predictable handling encourages you to push harder. The brakes bite hard, too. The steering is a particular highlight: nicely weighted and very direct.
Chrysler: In true American style, the SRT8 feels more at home on the drag strip than on a twisty country road. It lacks the agility of the SS-V. It feels a lot wider and the visibility isn’t as good. But the ride is comfortable and composed for such a big car riding on such big wheels.

I hope you are joking.
That is NOT a test or a review.
That's a weak opinion piece.

1/4 mile times, curb weight, observed mpg, track times, etc are all parts of a REAL test.
What part of "Not at all comprehensive" are you not able to understand?

Verdict

Holden: It may be less powerful but its performance in the bends and its significantly better value make it the clear winner here.
Chrysler: The SRT8 Core is a good car if you want to stand out and if you value sheer power. But Holden’s aggressive pricing strategy for the new VF Commodore range means the Core is outgunned in this duel.
Winner: Holden

This can't be true. Some dipstick on this board said the SS is too expensive!

I'm not wrong.

I didn't make the AUD to US conversion. You did.

I wasn't comparing Australian prices to US prices. You are.

I simply posted an opinion that says the SS is aggressively priced. That is a fact.

You read into what I posted. Another fact.

Now, you have once again been shown that YOU are the "uneducated fool" and that you are the "dipstick" I was referring to.

Go away. This board would be better w/out you.

[edit: and don't ever delete your posts. They continue to show the world how you really are.]

Your reading comprehension needs work.
Go back and actually READ what I posted.
No one is converting or comparing currencies or prices.

The price discussed in that AUSTRALIAN article you quoted is the AUSTRALIAN PRICE for the 2014 AUSTRALIAN Commodore that was lowered $10,000 from the 2013 Commodore IN AUSTRALIA.

So, yes, anyone would point out that the price is good when a slightly IMPROVED 2014 is $10,000 less than the replaced 2013.

So, you're WRONG.....again.
I absolutely cannot be wrong to quote a story. That is all I did.

You are the one that assigned your meaning to my quote.

And everyone on this forum already understands who put out the article so you can stop repeating that it is an Australian article as it does not help you look any less stupid than you already are.

I've told you before and I'll say it again. Messing with you is easier than catching mullet. You take every piece of bait thrown your way. It is easier to rile you than it is to shoot fish in a barrel.

Just how old are you?

Never mind. You'll just lie about that too.

Wow.
You're not even man enough to admit you're wrong when you make a obvious and public mistake because you're in such a hurry to try to start #$hit with me?
No one is buying your attempt at misdirection, reverse psychology, or simple denial.
I'm actually embarrassed for you.
I like how you constantly try to berate people you disagree with. You seem to call people stupid or ignorant or some other form of derogatory comment. Does that make you feel better about yourself? You know, to think that other people are stupid or in some way lesser than you?

Now you think I'm still wrong and am attempting "misdirection, reverse psychology, or simple denial" or that I should be "embarrassed".

This is happening to you because you insist on choosing to believe my points are lies or that I'm being dishonest. This too is another character issue of yours...that you are always right and that anyone who is opposite of you is therefore wrong.

Well, I hate to tell you this. But I've only been wrong one time since I joined this forum. And that was when I thought you were right about something.

Once you calm down and the tears dry, you'll have a clear head and should probably go back and reread everything. You'll see where you made your mistakes and you'll understand people can have opinions and that you don't have to attack people for their opinions. You'll also see that I am still right about everything.

If the above doesn't help you then you can go:
"faaaack yourself" ;)

You used an Austalian article's positive comment the lower 2014 Commodore price to mock my opinion of the SS Sedan's MSRP while being clueless about the fact the Australian price was lowered $10,000 from the 2013 price.
Then, when you were called out on it, you lied and tried to weasel out of it instead of just saying "Wow. My Bad. I didn't know that".

If you continue to try deny the facts above, you just make a bigger fool of yourself.
That is the way you see it. That is not what I did.

You're just further proving my points two posts above. :signlol:

Don't spit the hook out so soon. Let the barb sink in a bit.
