Back by popular demand ... The Impala SS sedan returns to the Chevrolet stable this fall after too long an absence. In the 1990s, Chevy sold a full-size sedan called Caprice, an ugly, bulbous machine that became the car of choice of taxi fleets because hardly anyone else would set foot in it. Then, in order to instill some life into the car, Chevrolet turned Jon Moss, who tinkered with performance cars, loose on Caprice. In 1961, Chevy had introduced its first Impala SS, or Super Sport.

If you have thick skin and deep pockets, you'll find the 2003 Chevrolet Suburban more pleasant than many of the other sport utility vehicles on the market.

This was two inches wider in the rear and the lines didn't resemble anything you could buy in a showroom.

Eight years after creating the Geo nameplate to attract import buyers, Chevrolet said Tuesday that it will eliminate the Geo name and start selling its Metros, Prizms and Trackers as Chevys, beginning next fall. The three Geo vehicles, whose sales through Chevrolet-Geo dealerships are up nearly 8% this year, will continue to be produced in the U.S. and Canada by joint ventures between General Motors and Japanese partners.

When Mark Lautherboren bought a new Chevrolet pickup from a Westminster dealership in 1988, he said he thought he was buying the truck of his dreams. But what he got was a lemon. As soon as he got it home, Lautherboren said, he noticed paint blisters and bubbles, scratches, pockmarks, runs and drips, along with fire damage in the engine compartment and torn and deformed seats and door panels.
