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


Review

Purchased this car for trips and cruising. Front heated seats are excellent for long runs. Never feel fatigued or cramped after all day drives. Receive plenty of good comments on the car's looks and Torch Red paint with the graphite interior. You either like the styling or not, no in betweens. The ladies love this car.


Best Features

Very comfortable seating. Heated seats are great! Roomy rear seating. Steering wheel controls are great. Sound system volume is speed compensating, set & forget it. Average 27-28 mpg consistantly. Very stable at speed even to 100 mph. Split folding rear seat and large trunk hauls large items easily.


Worst Features

Needs a V8! Exhaust system too quiet. Front seat belt placement not good. Fog lamps burn out easily & useless. More storage for center consle. Improved sporting suspension. Better chip resistant paint.

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


Review

This car has been underrated on fuel economy and performance. We have averaged 29 MPG (not just highway) since owning it. It is a beautiful car and had good pick up considering it is a V6. The original tires we had were noisy, and since changing them at 60,000 miles to a style with that in mind, this one drawback has been greatly improved.


Best Features

Our car in an understated solid black with no decals, no bowtie, just the SS in red. We have dark tinted windows. It looks like a sleek, intimidating machine. It is the best looking sports coupe period. We are proud to own it.


Worst Features

Make a V-8, though I understand this is an option in the 2006. Do not make this car more garish.

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


Review

This is a pretty nice car. My wife drives very short distances with it. So the city mileage is low - 14 to 17 mpg. On the highway at 65 mph - 29 to 31 mpg. My gripe with this car is repairs! After having the car 6 months the driver's side air bag (the one mounted on the drivers seat) failed. Then when it got inspected a tie-rod end was bad. And the leather cover on the drivers seat keeps pulling away from the side air-bag mount. The stereo system is very poor. It is an SS so you would expect something really good - and it is NOT.


Best Features

Heated leather seats, driver side - side air bag. A/C works great.


Worst Features

Much better stereo system.

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


Review

I love the looks of the car inside and outside. Still gets looks and compliments. However, I have had major repair problems. They began at 68,000 miles when the transmission had to be replaced at a price of $2,800, the entire ingnition system at a price of $700.00, heating thermostat which cost only $30.00, but had labor of $300.00, and lastly a wheel bearing at $200.00. Items that do not work properly are the turn signals, that only work when they want to, the steering wheel that has a vibration and now recently the window switch is going out on the drivers side. Drivers's side seat heater quit working at about 50,000 miles.


Best Features

Love the interior and especially the controls on the steering wheel. Love the power when you need it, or want it.


Worst Features

Doors are heavy and will slam your legs.
