Overall, a decent reliable car. Strong engine that will drive for several thousand miles. Be aware of minor repairs that will add up in the long run. Fuel pump, water pump, alternator, battery, coil pack, as well as other things have all needed replacement in the past 3 years. Overall, a good buy for the money!
Convenient location of controls.
Needs better fuel economy. I'm averaging 25 MPG on the HW. Not really pretty considering my '92 Blazer gets the same and it has a 4.6 liter, compared to the 3.1 in my monte carlo.
