2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Coupe SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Gotta love it! Great looks, great ride. Black w/dark tint looks like an intimidator on the road. Get looks from everyone who likes cars and from many who normally wouldn't notice. Have been a mechanic for 20 yrs. and from a repair standpoint this car is exceptionaly built, keeping it simple and yet having all the amenities of a far more costly car. When it does have to be worked on it is roomy and straightforward for the repair tech, which will make him/her smile while performing the repairs needed. Will be purchasing another SS to hotrod and park beside our '81 Monte Carlo. Nothing else has enough class to wear a bowtie other than a Chevy!


Best Features

Smokin hot body style. Reliable and bullet proof old school 3.8 litre.


Worst Features

Don't mess with perfection!

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this vechile in Oct '05 and I am loving it. It was a one owner vehicle and had 150,000 miles on it. It has 165,000 now and looks and runs like new. No rattles, doesn't burn any oil, drives like a new one. I would recomend this car to anyone. I contacted the original owner and he said he had no problems in the time he owned it other than a traction control malfunction that was fixed by the dealership under waranty. I drive it everyday and would reccomend this car to everyone.


Best Features

I like the sunroof, OnStar, dual climate control, 200 watt cd system, and the way it looks and handles. No rattles, no rust and looks new.


Worst Features

cCould use a few more horses.

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Coupe SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I fell in love with this car and bought it when I was 7 mo pregnant. The rear seats have plenty of space and are comfy. I have tinted windows and have replaced the stock radio which greatly improved sound quality w/o getting new speakers/amp. Ibought my SS in 09/01 and about to hit 60,000 mi. and have this popping sound that's felt in the steering wheel when turning. It is bothersome and annoying. Have yet to look into the source. Rear window was replaced due to defrost not working and there's leaking in trunk ever since. Dew is in trunk and rear taillights and items in trunk are damp but there's no leak though they insist. Auto windows are slowing down now. But I still love my SS.


Best Features

Sunroof and amplifier for sure. Roominess for a coupe for back seats and trunk. Heated seats, automatic lock. Spoiler. The design.Get lots of compliments especially after the tints and one summer with customized rims really turned heads.


Worst Features

The tire pressure light is an ongoing issue. Had turn signal issue like some others have mentioned. Seems like there are issues with rear defrost. A solution to the popping noises that are felt/heard when turning that seem to be getting more frequent now. Have some chipping with paint to front end.

I have enjoyed this car for 6 years and would buy another. The gas milelage was 22 in town and 28 mpg on the road. I had to replace the radiator fan unit this past year. My air conditioner will need to be replaced next year.


Best Features

Cloth buckets seats. The NASCAR type rear spoiler. The 3.8L engine. The instrument panel, and warning system in the ceiling. Gear shift handle. The rear seat room for passengers.


Worst Features

Adjustable height for the shoulder strap.

Review

Battery was bad at 10,000 miles. Head gasket blown at 45,000 miles (constant low coolant light on = expensive repair). Fuel injectors bad at 25,000 miles (cleaned). Engine mounts replaced at 60,000 miles (very expensive). AC controls bad at 40,000 miles. Electronic module computer bad at 60,000 miles (replaced = very expensive) Mechanic at the dealer's said he has seen these problems repeated over and over with this model. Who pays for it? Who did you think? GM? Naahh... I had mechanical breakdown insurance, but had to pay $250.00 for each incident. What I saved with 0% finance, I have spent in repairs that one would never believe to occur in such a new car. No more GM! Enough!
