So, can we assume that--unlike the supposedly "real" people" in those incredibly annoying Chevy ads-- you are not sitting in the driver's seat exclaiming, "Wow!", over and over again?
However, in all seriousness, before totally dismissing that model's handling ability, I think that it would be a good idea to check the tire pressure. I can recall when we (mother, father, me, and brother) took a test drive in a new '66 Galaxie. I found the handling to be really terrible, but then I found that the tires were inflated to only 16 psi.
I increased the pressure to 26 psi, and found that it handled as well as any other American sedan of that era. (Translation=not great handling, but light-years better than it had been with only 16 psi in the tires.)
