Best Chevy I Ever Had! — I have never been a chevy fan, but I like my Monte. I bought it 2 years ago with 157,000 miles. Now it's got 213,000 and still going strong. I was getting poor milage til I had the transmission rebuilt. I didn't even realize overdrive wasn't working! Now it always gets high 20's and I even pulled 30.2 mpg at 80 mph while crossing Tennessee. I love the power and the high revs of the engine, and I use it often. The motor reminds me of the high reving mopar small blocks. Usually a chevy engine doesn't hold up to my style of driving, but this motor seems to thrive on being used! On the down side, it is one of the hardest motors I have ever had to work on. It has a poor design for an oil leak where the distributor used to be, and it takes a long time to bleed the cooling system. I like the appearance of the car because it doesn't grab attention. I also like that I do not have a wing or any bright emblems advertising the Z34 package. Other than the 2 tailpipes, it looks like a regular monte. Noone expects a 2-door Lumina to run with the V-8's. The Z34 handles great with a great feel to the steering, but it doesn't turn very sharp for parking. I have had problems keeping the back brakes working properly and finally just converted the whole brake system to regular brakes, not anti-lock. Now I have better brakes than ever, but I still have a lot of brake fade while driving in the rain.

The Monte "lumina" Carlo — I bought it to replace the Beretta. The z34 with the 3.4 Twin Cam is a decent car, moderate power with good control (four wheel independant suspension). The 3.4's are expensive to mod so they are cheap cars to get used if you plan to leave them stock. The car runs and drives perfect but the transmission is failing, which is a week point in these cars.

Beautiful Car — Mine was black with a gray leather interior. The V-6 had enough power and the got good gas mileage. Trunk was huge and front and back seats were very comfortable. It was a great highway cruiser. It always attracted compliments wherever I went.

Pros

Its a 2 door Coupe which gives it more style. Got the bigger 3.4l V6. Has leather interior. Bigger wheels and breaks. Tight suspension and handling. Fast as hell.

Cons

Belt driven cams. Tight engine compartment. Expensive motor to maintenance.

Its A Fast Car With Tons Of Extra Torque. — Overall this is my favorite car. Shes got great Torque to HP ratio. Decent gas mileage. Its a great car if you know what to tinker with. Did a Suspension upgrade and a Front disc break and pad change. She stops better and accelerates amazingly.

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

Pros

It only cost $500. Of all the cars I've had over the year this one is definately the best bang for my buck.

Cons

The oil leak that would cost more than I paid for the car to fix.

I Would've Loved To Have Had This Car When It Was Brand New. — I got this car for $500 and it doesn't owe me a dime. Other than a severe oil leak that would take 12 hrs to fix I just add about a quart a week. This car is like a Monte SS. They didn't make the SS for a few years so they made the Z-34 instead. This car is a blast to drive, even though it weighs like 2 tons it's got sufficient power.

Fun Car, But Costly To Maintain — I bought the car with 98000 miles on it. It runs great for the $1200 I bought it for. I have not had any problems yet. The transmission was rebuilt when I got it. It has great acceleration and handling. It's fun to drive. The downside are that it's front wheel drive, and the engine is difficult to work on.

Was A Good Car In Its Day — I just got the car about 6 months ago with 95000 on it. The acceleration is great for a 3.4L Its seeming to go through brake pads on the driver front, it has an idle problem and a hifting problem. I do not like the lumina look a like styling. gas milage is terrible im getting 12 combined city/hwy. its not worth selling im this condition and its going to take more than what its worth to fix.

Monte Carlo — I loved this car and I really miss it. Not sure why, I can't really explain it. It completely died with 109k miles on it, so I had another engine put in and that one died about 500 miles later too. Build quality was ok even though a couple lights on the dash didn't work.

My Vehicle — To start, I have been preaching the word of the Monte Carlo since the 7th grade. The 3.4L dual overhead cam engine has a unique torque curve, really kicking in at 4K RPM. The trans in my beast isn't too bad, it buzzes when its hot though. Gas mileage isn't great, but overall is ok. Except the cost of fixing it. Its expensive. And just like me, she hates sitting in traffic.
