Pros

great comfortable car not bad stock sound system but plan to switch it out

Cons

be careful of the engine had a bad cylinder at 89 thousand

25

All Around Not Bad — performance- brakes are a little weak but the handling is excelent it could turn on a dime Performance- its defineatlely not on the light side so the standard v6 has a little more weight to pull around speed- not super fast comfort- super spacious its an awesome cruiser

Great Car — Performance is impressive for a V6, while getting 28 MPG! No squeaks or rattles (only 30K miles) One of the most recognizable cars on the road Great gas mileage Fun car to drive, but wish it had a v-8

The Monte — This car is perfect for me. It defines me because it combines luxury and performance. It isn't the fastest car on the road but it moves. That lil 3800 puts some pep in it my lead foot. The SLP aftermarket axel back exhaust makes it sound mean, you know when I'm about to roll up. Overall a great car I have not a single complaint thus far!

Amazing — It picks up speed, maintains it and rarely needs maintenance. Great on gas and road trips. Amazing trunk space and speaker quality. Seats are comfy and roomy. And the sun roof is an added bonus. Also the big doors help too!

A Little Bit About My Car — There is nothing i don't like about it. The BFG's have made the handling even better. This is the limited edition Yellow SS. It is a blast to drive. With 121000 miles still looks and runs like new. I have spent countless hours keeping it clean and polished. I get 20 mpg in the city and over 30 on the highway. Of course I do get into that throttle now and again. We also use all synthetic transmission fluid and oil Amsoil. So, I love my car!!

My Ss — I bought the car second hand in 2005 with 12,500 miles on it. It now has 155,575 miles on it. I have had to do minor repairs on it. I love the way the car rides and looks. I just added nascar wheels and new goodyear tires. It is going to get a custom paint job soon. The car gets 30 mpg. I have gotten one speeding ticket since I bought the car. It is fast for a 6 pack.

Handling

M Nnmnj — The braking could be improver as well as the handling. And some modifications im thinking about doing is the intake and full exhaust. The interior is all black leather with a sunroof fully loaded. This car is very enjoyable to drive.

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

I like that it gets looks and is fun to drive. Alot of the Interior parts of a Chevelle also work on this car. Has lots of power but is also a very heavy car so not real fast on a track. Read More
