Yeah, the g6 is pretty quick. People dont believe me when I tell them the cars ive beaten. But, it still needs to be opened up a bit more, thats why im getting a tune for it. From what ive seen, it does a pretty good job of waking the g6 up.

The G6 is pretty fast, but I thought it has a speed limiter that's set to around 114 or something. Maybe your acceleration carried you to 120 or maybe I'm just wrong! dunno
My car is at the dealership for warranty work and I was given a 2010 Chevy Impala LT as the rental car. I was expecting it to be sort a fast but was sadly disappointed. It supposedly has 210 hp but it feels much slower than my G6, which has 201. The gas petal feels really hard to press (I seriously thought there was something wrong with the car or the parking break was on when I was pulling out of the rental car lot) and the brake petal is really touchy- a terrible combo! I guess the impala just isn't designed as "sporty" as the G6.

yeah it definitely is more of a family sedan. I looked it up and it's less than 100lbs heavier than the G6.
The weird thing about the impala is that it boasts having more horsepower (not a lot more, granted), only gets 18 mpg city (so you at least expect it to be fast, even if its not really sporty) yet performance-wise it feels like a family sedan. I thought to myself "well, maybe it's good for cruising on the highway..." but I found the steering to be almost over-responsive and it's annoying just trying to stay in a lane at 55 mph (though good in parking lots I found) and I can't imagine it at interstate highway speeds. The responsive steering suggests sporty... It's like it can't decide what it wants to be. In conclusion, however, it's definitely not a G6!
