Chevy — Performance - It runs good but goes through brakes like every two months. Quality - Its old so of course it needs repairs but the motors new about 5, 000 miles on it now. Aperance - I love the way the Monte Carlo SS looks in every year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Really Fun To Drive And Quick For A Small V8. — I really like that this car is fun to drive and isn't the worst thing I've driven when it comes to gas mileage. Had it to drag strip last fall and was really consistant and had a ton of fun with it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Best Car I Drove — I bought this car a couple years ago for $3,500. The guy was originally asking $5,500 for it, but my dad was able to talk him down. I have yet to get this car 100% on the road yet. It does run, but I still need insurance for it. From the little bit I drove it around the neighborhood, it handles great. Acceleration is outstanding with it's 305 V8 engine. The only thing I won't like about this car is how much it's going to guzzle gas...My uncle (who is a mechanic) estimates it will get about 15 MPG. If anyone knows anyone selling any older Monte Carlo SS, you should definitely buy one. These are GREAT cars!

Pros

Tons of power and fun to drive!

Cons

I don't like my gas mileage and have considered swapping to an OD trans or adding a GearVendor.

Great Car All Around — 80s performance, other than GM turbo cars, was lacking. My Monte SS has an upgraded rearend, a T400 trans, and a 383 Lunati balanced and blueprinted stroker kit putting 310hp and 356lbs of torque to the ground. Gas mileage would be my only complaint, but it's a blast to drive!

Nostalgiac Ride — Really nothing bad about the car minus the gas consumpstion. I would like for the front seats to be better adjustable but I can take care of that with aftermarket seats. Other than that Im pretty happy with it all in all.

Can Be Customized Easy. — All ratings are low. This car can be restored into a beautiful custom. The original motor is way under powered. It makes a great street or drag car. I want to install a big block crate motor. Watch my progress.

Monte Carlo — Guys this car is amazing.It can be white, black or a blood red with pin striping down th side. And if you reallly want to get rare....look for a monte carlo ss aero. Only about 3000 were made. I would sell my left arm for it. Its my favorite car.

Nice To Drive And It Turns Heads But Won't Pass A Gas Pump W/o Stopping. By blabonte
