2002 Monte Carlo Ss — Bought the car brand new and have loved it ever since. The performance is good but could be better it accelerates great, brakes well, and handles like a dream. The only thing i have done is replace the turn signal switch, replaced the battery, and changed oil regularly. I love the leather interior and the bright yellow paint job. The gas mileage is great usually between 25-30 when keeping my foot out of it. The car is great for taking out on the town on the weekends to have fun in and race people.

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!

New Car — This car is very fun and smooth car to drive. The 3800 engine is very strong and runs forever. I love the heated leather seats and sunroof. Not the best if your are really tall but it works. Overall its an amazing car.

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

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!

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.....

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