Good at first...!
By Matt on
2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe
I first bought the car and was excited because not too many of them were around. It had a few problems at first covered under my warranty, fuel filter leaked, needed a rear strut. It shifted great at first and now at around 125000 its really rough. Things started to go wrong after the 120000 mile mark. Little things at first, coolant temperature sensor, some of the plastic paneling in the car. Windshield wipers The main problem is the tranny which is very common around 120000 k. Besides that the car is powerful for being a large sedan. 0-60 in about 8 seconds. You can by-pass the governor as well...as soon as you reach the governor quickly put it in neutral and back in to gear, there ya go!
Comfortable, quick, Not bad on gas.
Get rid of the cheap interior, build them to last, make them in a 5-speed, place everything in and around the engine in a better spot, cant even change power steering fluid without getting angry! Had to remove head pipe to change temperature sensor.
