    New Owner Of A Intimidator Ss — I've only owned this 2004 Monte Carlo Intimidator SS for a few months but have had more fun driving and more compliments on this particular car than any I've ever owned. I have to admit it's not as easy on gas as I hoped it might be, but I definitely enjoy driving it enough to overlook the gas milage. Some of that may be that being supercharged, I find it sort of hard not putting my foot into it a bit more than I have to, because I love the acceleration.

    Owner for 0 years, 3 months

    Miles Driven per Year:7,000

    Pros: Very attractive and all the toys a guy or girl could want, as well as enough power to keep driving fun.

    Cons: A bit hard on gas, and ride is a bit chopy.

    Sinister Super Sport — Just Love this Car All the way Around!! Great Looking, Sporty, Handles Great almost like my former Corvette in turns at higher speeds grips the road nice, but definitely gets way better gas millage 23+City / 28+Highway.. Weather your Young or Old these are great vehicles to own.. One of the Best Vehicles I have ever owned, Hands Down a Keeper..

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

    Pros: Handles Great, Very Reliability, Awesome Gas Milage, Nice and Comfortable, Sporty/Luxury Full Size 2dr Coupe

    Take Heed, Owners Of Japanese Cars! This Is What American Car Engineering Is All About!! — My 2004 Monte Carlo SS Supercharged 3.8 V6 is the nicest car I've ever owned. It rates as much fun to drive as it is to look at standing still,(which isn't too often) with it's shiny yellow sporty paint job and beautiful black leather interior. I've owned it since September 2007 at 28,000 miles put on by the lady who leased it from the dealer for 3 years. It has better acceleration by far than the three Corvettes I have previously owned. ('75, '78 and '79) and is every bit as much fun to bend around a sharp corner as it is to unleash the 13 psi Eaton Supercharger out on the open highway. It has easily kept up with much more powerful V8's pushing 390 HP such as the Toyota Tundras and Nissan Titans in the passing lanes, even though it only pushes 240 HP! The styling is great and really attracts a lot of attention. I've had compliments from both young and old everywhere I go. The interior is as nice as any leather interior I've seen in any luxury car and still has that "new car smell" every time I open the door. The CD sound system blows away any standard system I've had in any car before this one. It is a 6 speaker amplified "Monsoon" system that came with it and it ROCKS!!! The Bass just jumps out at you even at low volumes. The heated seats are a blessing on those cold mornings and evenings and the HUGE trunk comes in so handy when shopping at Costco. The collapsible rear seat is a real handy item, too! Ladders and longer items fit easily into this car. The 4 wheel disc brakes work effortlessly even at high speeds and the stability in high speed cornering is impressive to say the least. There are no rattles, squeaks or other annoying noises that most used cars seem to develop. The engineers at Ward Engineering have done an admirable job in designing a sports car that has all the features and advantages of a big solid car combined with a race car feel. Not an easy thing to do!! I've noticed that switching to Castrol Syntec 5W-30 oil has made a big difference to my gas mileage. Well worth the extra money for the high-end oil. I'm now getting an extra weeks worth of driving before a fill-up. About 28 mpg around town and easily 35 on the highway. As far as power, I've had it up to 120 mph numerous times on long trips, and it feels as if I am going 60 mph, it's that smooth a ride with no steering wheel bounce or front end shimmy. A very solid and responsive machine, indeed! The "fun-factor" is off the scale with this car, as I look forward to driving to work each day, unlike most of the cars I have driven in the past. It has every imagineable option you can desire in a car, and some I was surprised to find. Also, due to the front wheel drive, this car is incredible in deep snow! It is a big, heavy vehicle which helps trememdously in slippery snow. I remember back a few years ago, when I lived on a terribly steep hill, just how easily and effortlessly the Monte Carlo plowed right up the hill. I took only a short run at it as there was a sharp corner at the bottom, and it made it all the way to the top! This was a road that all the neighbors were afraid to use and were parking their Ford trucks at the bottom!! Another bonus to owning this car! Peace of mind in the worst weather conditions Canada can throw at it!! An update as of April 22, 2012...I have just purchased a "G-Force Performance Chip" for this vehicle and am astonished at the difference it has made to my gas mileage, acceleration and overall performance! I have gained at least 30 HP, my gas mileage has dramatically improved and acceleration is now instantaneous. The G-Force website is easy to find on the Internet, and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone and everyone to make the $69.95 purchase for their vehicle A.S.A.P. Why give your hard-earned money away to the oil barons when you can cut your trips to the gas stations by installing this little gadget. It takes less than 30 minutes to install it, and will virtually pay for itself in the first month after you get it. I noticed a huge difference almost immediately and am very impressed with this product! It does EXACTLY what it says it will do. ( Reprograms your onboard engine computer to optimize horsepower, fuel / air mixture to 14.5 to 1 ratio, reduces emissions and betters engine overall performance.) I now buy gas once a month instead of every 10 days! This product really works! Buy it!! It's the best $69.95 you'll ever spend on your vehicle!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A rocket on wheels! This car turns heads wherever I go! People actually stop me as I get into my car, or honk at me from the next lane and ask me about the car!

    Cons: Higher car insurance costs and general maintenance is expensive because the engine compartment is so crowded due to front wheel drive engine.

    Monte!!! — 0-60 est low 5 secs.Best 1/4 13.74 at 99.4 mph. Pulls 55mph in 1st gear. Motor pulls strong up to 110 or so, top end not the best. Blower whines like none other. Cons--- ITS FWD. No traction, but once it catches, it pulls pretty damn good. Not the best in the corners. But for the most part an overall good car.Hope to keep on modding it up.

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

    Pros: Clean and full of torque

    Cons: FWD

    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!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its big and comfortable, trunk is large

    Cons: none
