Great performance, stereo system

Cons

cheap plastic on the doors

Great Car! — Performance is amazing, even with a V6 engine and 180HP this machine really has a great pick up. 0-80 in a matter of seconds. It's a fun drive with a great design, really gets you noticed on the road. Build quality is great too, as this car is basically built like a tank, when in an accident you'll be ok (I've never proved that point thankfully yet though). As far as gas millage goes, it isn't the best, but it's ok. It has a larger engine, so not that great if you have a long commute, but overall it's not bad. The interior is not that great, definitely used cheap plastic on the doors, but the seats are comfortable and the standard stereo system is extremely good. Maintenance is pretty good too, I've had it for over 7 months, never had to take it in except for it's scheduled oil changes.

Its Ok For Now — its got style and sound and the right look at night. looks good with some nice 22 inch rims on it gets good mpg and easy to fix and an awesome ride all it need is that candy paint put on.

The Daily Driver — I got this car in March 2008. Its a 3400 V-6 with AOD transmission. I have added some decals to the rear quarters and windshield to spice it up a little. I love driving my Monte it has great passing power and sounds good from the factory. I hope to install an aftermarket exhaust system on it soon and throw new tires and wheels on it as well.

Pros

its supercharged, black, leather interior, heated seats, and sun roof

Cons

front wheel drive, not stick, needs premium gasoline, and audio system isn't the greatest

My Own Personal Bat-mobile — My black 2005 super-charged monte carlo has amazing acceleration and when that super-charger kicks in it goes like a bat outta hell! hasn't needed any major repairs that i can remember... it has a leather interior with heated seats so thats always nice in the winter and a sunroof which is nice in the summer. My car is tons of fun to drive i love rippin around in it! Theres only a few things i dont like about it... its front wheel drive which im not a big fan of, its not stick (even though i cant drive stick that well i would still like it better that way), it needs premium which though means better performance costs a lot more, and finally the speakers aren't the greatest but i can easily look past that...

Road noise, and the 3.4L has a some problems with the head gaskets.

Great Car — Good acceleration for being the LS package with the 3.4 liter. Built very solid, some road noise. Nice factory speakers. Very sharp looking, comfortable to drive. Small back seat but for a driver it's very comfortable. It's definitely a fun car.

Love It And Recommend It — I like it because it's nice it's got a spacious backseat thuogh it is only 2 doors (Which I'm starting to hate). It runs okay but can smell gas sometimes and stinks :P. it accelerates fast and brakes quick. Sometimes it does have a little rattle in it but goes away. Exterior the silver paint is nice and shiny while interior is grey and cloth which is comfortable but I have blackand blue seat covers. it currently has alittle more than 75,000 miles on it and I get anywhere from 350-400 MPG. It tells me when I am about to be low on fuel, low washer fluid, and needs oil change. has a good stereo, On Star, and Sirius radio. It's very fun and easy to have a good time in!

My Monte — This car gets 30 to 35 MPG,looks great and is very good on the roads. Dont know why some of the reviews say 21 to 32 MPG .The 3.4 v6 is plenty of power for my use .The styling is what makes this car so unique,,,looks like a nascar to me .
