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.

Pros

It's a Monte Carlo SS (stands for Super Sport) enough said.

Cons

Now that the grandkids are here - it's only a 2-door. Not very car-seat friendly. Still love it and make it work.

35

Awesome, Great, Love It!! That's Why I Bought It!! — I really like my car - that's why I bought it. Chevy is driving excitement!! For size of car compared to size of motor - there is nice acceleration, all around performance. Very fun to drive - I don't like to leave it sit anywhere. All I have had to put into it is regular maintenance, even after a trip across country. Since my car is loaded with all options, styling is awesome. Gas mileage is good - 24 to 27 mpg - good for size and motor. Love it!

Pros

SS, supercharger in some models, the suspension is amazing.

Cons

v6, front wheel drive, low horsepower for a v6.

Purebred Nascar Love Child — it may scream redneck, but it is in the SS line of Chevrolet. the 3.8l v6, is a strong reliable engine, but not all have the supercharger

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