Wish I Could Replace It With Anouther Brand New One. — Nov23,2011 - 242,000 miles and still the best car I ever owned. Bought my brand new Blue SS in 2004, today Oct 09 I have 174,000. So far its been the best and most reliable car I ever owned in my life. Yea ... it could have used more power, but the gas mileage would have suffered, And yes it could have been rear wheel drive, but would it have got me home during a snow storm? The best part ... best heated leather seats ever made! I travel for my job and I choose to drive then to fly and this is first class all the way!

Good Car For School Or A First Car, Not Going To Win Your Heart Over — Great car for school. It has decent horsepower and handling for such a large couple. The driver is very comfortable with the space around the driver. There are some rattles that accompany any Chevy model car. It is very well styled, however you see a lot of them. The gas mileage is outstanding for a V6 and maintenance costs are minimal. It's not going to get your adrenaline going.

Pros

Great car, looks fantastic, (Inside and out) gets 30 MPG HWY, sounds great at about 5600 RPMs ;)  I think it's safe to say. "I love my car!"

Cons

Front-wheel drive.....

75

I Love My Car! — The 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS has the strongest V6 I have seen. Unfortunately it is only a V6. That means when you get on it (For whatever reason) it's like driving a restricted engine. Of course they do offer a supercharged V6 and I can only imagine how much more power that would give you. One more thing on the downside and then I'll talk about something good about it. Who invented the front-wheel-drive? I would like to ask them what the point in that was, then I would like to ask Chevrolet why they made the Monte Carlo a front-wheel drive. But other than those small details that only someone who likes cars would notice, the car drives great. It is a couple of years old but in no way looks like it. It's only got 22k miles on it and has had no problems at all even though I've driven it everywhere. It's got great fuel mileage which is good in todays world. (I like to call it a fuel efficient racecar). Great car, looks fantastic, (Inside and out) gets 30 MPG HWY, sounds great at about 5600 RPMs ;) I think it's safe to say. "I love my car!"

No power seats and missing controls on steering wheel.

Red Monte — I love my car I wish it had more features like power seats and radio controls on the steering wheel but pretty sure it was a rental car so can you say bottom of the line. I paid a really good price for it. My trany is slowly going I'm waiting for the day it wont shift. Its only a 3.4 v6 it takes a while to get 'er reved up, lol.

My 2004 Chevrolet Ss Supercharged Monte Carlo!!! — It is one of my most favorite cars. I was so happy when I got her and I still love driving her whenever I can. It's just so much! I love that I've got the power under the hood finally and someday I wanna take her to the strip and test out her true power! She's got the paint job I wanted, usually gets around 26 mpg, nice star wheels, got power, and she's got under 21,000 miles on her.

Fun Ride :) — I own a 2004 signature edition Dale Jr Chevy Monte Carlo. It sports a 3.8L supercharged V6 engine capable of producing 240hp at 5200 rpm and 280ft lb of torque at 3600 rpm. The Monte hugs the curves real well steering response is great which makes it really fun to drive when you are in the mood for a little speed :) I recommend this car to anyone who is a fan of Dale Jr and can find one lol

Chevy Power! — Big system, clean lines. solid and pretty fast. it does seem to find peace with 115mph very comfortably. The car is a blast to drive, but its been getting fixed for the last month or so because of the crash...

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

Best Car I've Ever Owned. — Build Quality: It's been a fantastic car that is both fun to drive and comfy for long road trips. I still love it as much as the day I bought it. Car Comparisons: I considered both small suvs and other sportier cars such as a Nissan 350Z but the overall package of this car sold me.

it looks great, has a great wide stance

Cons

the rear shocks

Great Car — It is big, roomy, and a nice car to ride around in., Performance is great for a big car, that 3800 series v6 gets up and goin, at the moment suspension sucks though. Otherwise a nice looking car with sleek looks.

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