I've always liked the way these Monte Carlos looked and after a test drive I knew it was coming home with me! For the smaller V-6, acceleration is rather impressive. Whoever designed the interior got it absolutely right. The controls are all easy to reach and where you would want or expect them to be. The trunk is enormous as well.
Three words. Bright. Red. Paint. The way the car sits, the way you sit in the driver's seat, the design overall is sporty but comfy with a touch of muscle car thrown in. Very fun to just cruise around in.
Turning radius is poor, but that's expected on a car its size. The doors are very heavy. Suspension is a little stiff.
