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.

Expensive to fix

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.

Cheap, Unreliable — Worst car I've ever owned. The 3.4L V6 engine is severely under powered compared to other engines of similar size.

DOESNT RUN RITE NOW

Verrry Nice Quoted Like Borat — right now it doesnt run so that sucks but it runs well when it does. Very nice body, 500 used, leather interior with a crazy sound system. The car is very fun to drive it is automatic, which blah... GAS

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

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.
