Now that I've owned this car for four
years, I'm glad to finally be getting
rid of it! Talk about HEADACHES!!!
Every time I fix something, there's
something else waiting to go. Starting
with electrical problems, the power
widnows worked sporadically for months
till they found the problem. Then the
fuel pump went, or was it the belt
tensionor that went next... I've
replaced the intake gasket. Then the
front hub-assemblies, half-shafts & tie-
rod ends. Surprise, then the
altornator went! Now the odometer has
stopped & the guages have gone
crazy... No waite maybe it's me going
crazy! Best of all, now the whole
engine needs to be resealed!
The single cup-holder for all
passangers was thinking! Seriously
though, I like the stereo controls in
the steering wheel, the car feels very
sporty to drive with lots of horsepower.
To replace the battery? removal of the
windshield washer fluid tank & a frame
support is necassary. For a tune up,
the intake manifold along with many
other components will be in your way.
A bottle of asprin would fit nicly in
the cup-holder. Then where would I put
I bought this car because of it's high
power/weight ratio, low mileage (60 k),
and reasonable price (around $3800),
cheap for something with this much
power. But coming from a '90 MX-6 this
car is a lot bigger and thirstier. It
does get to 60 in under 8 seconds. But
this is a big car and you won't confuse
the handling with a sports car.
Moves on hwy & from lights. Car looks
really clean in white w/white rims.
Leather is nice, has abs & 2 airbags,
huge trunk, decent audio sys., dual
exhaust, engine sounds great. Lots of
storage spaces. No timing belt. Hit
hard in rear, no damage.
Ridiculously long/heavy doors. Seats
need side bolsters. Cruise, cd chgr,
kyls entry broken on delivery. Make car
more sporty, less hwy cruiser: stiffen
suspension, 17 in wheels, 4 wh discs.
Change nose, so it looks less like
Lumina. IMPROVE FUEL ECONOMY!!!
I have owned this car from day one. It
is still in great shape. You can not
tell it is 8 years old. Only have
54,000 miles on it, but just replaced
my second alternator. The brakes went
in 30K miles and cost a lot to
replace. I enjoy this car a lot. It
is geared for a quick acceleration off
the line. Revs to 7,000!!
However, crap mileage compared to
I like the engine even though it has
Make the front suspension better. When
you get up in speed, the car bounces
around way to much. My Firebird will
hug the road at insane speed, this one
makes you nervous.
This car is an unbelivable machine for
what you get with it. The engine is a
little rough around the edges but if
you do a little work to it there won't
be any problems for the future. I have
completely tricked out my monte with
the underbody kit and the ground
effects with mirror tinted windows and
it also has an engine that has only
$1250 in work and pushes triple the
amount of horsepower. A normal Z34
comes with about 225 hp mine is pushing
695 hp and can still reach higher. For
those car lovers who like to do work on
their cars this is one machine that
should intrigue your senses. For those
who really love montes this is one that
you should look into.
The handling and the look. The curved
bottom gives it a different but good
it makes it different then
any other car ive seen other then the
1994 Beretta GT. The handliong is
unreal on this car you can take a
fairly decent corner on the thruway at
80 mph and not have any problems.
Definently needs a better engine, this
engine can reach insane amounts of
horsepower if you know how to do it,
but if you don't know how to work on
engines is very expensive.
I just love this car! It has a very
nice ride, in fun to drive, and most
people like the looks of this vehicle.
However, the gas mileage is not too
good and I have now replaced the
alternator 3 times and it only has 43K
miles on this car!!! If that is not
bad enough, the cost to repair is
outrageous. I'm so concerned about
future problems that I am now
considering trading in my favorite car
for a more reliable one. It's really
too bad that I bought it in
95'...should have waited a few years
when the rating showed less problems.
This car is not only an exceptional
looking car, but it handle very well
and is so confortable.
Fix the alternator problems and other
engine problems that the ratings show.
Also, my cruise control has broken
several times within the first few
thousand miles. The part that keeps
breaking is made of plastic and just
doesn't hold up to the temperatures.
