Real good fuel economy low maintenance cost, these things are all over the junkyards so parts are easy to come by

Overall It Was Good Car, Started Everytime (even After It Threw A Rod) And Handled Snow Well — I really like this car. It's held up pretty good for a 10+ year old car. It has some minor issues but what car doesn't? Pretty spacious for a 2 dr and it has some decent trunk space. Good car all together.

Great For Anything — Great car all the way around. Tons of power coming out of the V6. Excellent on gas and comfortable for the whole family. Tons of room to pack away everything in the trunk. I would recommend this car to anyone!

Dream Car — I look great driving it and it makes a lot of heads turn. It is super loaded with options. The stereo system is the loudest stock system I've ever heard. I would get another one in a heart beat. Love it!

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

Pros

Good styling, large trunk, great stereo. Sunroof is a nice touch. 3800 engine has always been a reliable performer.

Cons

Sure would have liked a V8.... but that's just me. Heck, it has dual exhaust, spoiler, the styling, just 1 more little step and voila.... done.

They Made It Work For Nascar, Why Not Us? — I have loved Monte Carlos since they 1st appeared as the 70's monsters. Lost my love during their identity crisis, especially in the early 80's. Then this 6th gen my folks bought, to my surprise, won me back. I just live in this fantasy world of rumble and roar, hoping that smoke will once again bellow from those rear wheels allowing me to do a proper burnout.....

Powerful V6, I'd Buy It Again If I Had The Option. — Great car, its one of 1150. 2002 pacecar edition. Got a strong V6 and I put in a performance chip and a super charger, and is at about a 14 second quarter mile. Overall the car has a great sound for a V6.
