Great Car — Great Car. I havent had a problem with it since ive had it. Great on gas, cheap parts, is able to go when floored in cases. Since it is a older car it needs struts for a comfort ride. Hope this car lasts for many years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability

Cons: The older model of the Monte's

Great, Fun, Relaible Car. — The performance on the car is excellent, it doesn't really kick until about 2,000-3,000 rpm, but after that you can really fell the Z34 kick in! :P For build quality is amazing so far, (knock on wood of course) i've only had to do general maintence and replace the battery and cables easy fix, the apperance is amazing it is very curvy and sleek, the car just looks good, cost of ownership is really low, i get about 28 miles to the gallon for a 13 year old car with 127,000 miles on it. lol and since it is a mid 90's engine can get a little annoying. For fun factor I love driving the car, I always take the long way home. :) It also has a huge interior with leather seats and power everything.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage, huge interior, really good stock sound system, just fun to drive.

Cons: Mid 90's engine.

Chevrolet Did It Again — this car is a very reliable car, black 3.4DOHC bout 220hp, 230lbs torque. rocker panels rot before the engine goes, very reliable transportation. very easy to customize interior. this is not a persons first car, needs to be taken care of in order to save her. :)

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

Pros: very fast... got some balls

Cons: not a first car

'96 Monte — Customized with a Brickyard 400 package. I was the original owner and drove it for over 8 years before it started to nickel and dime me to death. Unfortunately I had to get rid of it. This was one of the best cars I ever owned or drove.

Pros: Great cornering, handling, speed.

Cons: Once it hit about 86000 mi, it cost me a lot to keep it running, kept itself in the shop

Monte — Amazing car, never had a better one.. its fast, sleek, and stylish.. power up the ying-yang.. few upgrades just put in it. no backseat less weight.. acceleration could be a bit faster but the body style makes up for it. it handles like a dream from 0-60. cant beat it

Pros: fast

Cons: rims stink

Z 34, Nuff Said — love it, fast, clean, nice looking, handles like a dream with performance tires, gas is good unless you stand on it, fits a carseat for families like mine, the ride is a little rough but then again it is a sports model, and performance tires dont make it any smoother

Pros: fast, sporty

Cons: gass guzzles when u get frisky

My Monte — Well i bought it second hand It had 180k when i got 2months ago and not it has 195k Its got good acceleration thanks to a 3.4L DOHC v6, it has 4wheel disc brakes and 16" aluminum rims with Sumic tires. Its needed minor repairs like Plugs and plug wires and a starter. Its bright red nice z34 body kit (upgrading eventually) with a fully loaded all leather interior, power everything(windows,locks, power adjustable seats).I get around 25mpg i know its not much but its got a big tank (64L i think) so i cans till go pretty far on a tank. and Yes its very fun to drive with that 215 Hp. I'd recommend it to certain people but not others cuz some cant handle her eh b'y LOL

Pros: Fast Solid built car

Cons: Gas Mileage, Motors hard to work on

The Car I Wish I'd Have Never Wrecked. — I just sold the car for parts after the transmission went out in August, 2007 which I think was caused by getting hit by a Jeep in May, 2007. It always got anywhere between 24-29 mpg. To this day I wish I'd never wrecked it or else I'd still be driving it today.

Pros: Roomy, ran great, got great gas mileage. Also, had plenty of power for a car that weighed 3,300 lbs.

Cons: Cost me $450 to put intake gaskets in it.

My Mothers Car — average performance, has a rev limiter of 4000, and the interior is quite large. very big car as well, and the 3.4l is a touch noisy for the usage of it. (even though i know it is a Z34) quite slow of the start, but grabs after 2000 rpm, and picks up quicker... not the best rendition of the famed montecarlo, but its a car...

Pros: has the same styling as the lumina, so parts are abundant. large interior room, and loads of luxury features9that were not standard in 1996) has buttons on the steering wheel... and the same stereo as the 2001 GMC sierra lol

Cons: it has the same styling as the lumina, and the car has a rev limiter. long front & rear overhang, and long wheelbase... not the montecarlo that i expected to drive

The Monte Carlo has been a classic from its inception, to have found one with only 35,000 miles in absolutely pristine shape was both a surprise and a great blessing. Thank you Car Gurus! Read More
