2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my 2001 MC SS used w/ a little over 60k miles on it. The only disappointments I have found would be the absence of the V8 and manual shifter. Car styling is excellent, much better than the mid-90's models. This car has impressive pwr coming from the V6 when needed. Steering is a bit stiff in tight corners, but really drives great at speeds exceeding 80mph. The only thing that I have noticed that is out of sort is a slight popping coming from the front wheels when pulling off of an incline. I have had this checked out and it seems to be just a qwirk with the traction control feature. Nothing worth breaking a sweat over.
Roomy and comfortable interior. Ride quality and handling. Exterior styling and lines. Black paint is a fan favorite.
Put more horses under the hood. Lack of manual shifter and sheer horsepower. Slight popping/gringing feel in the steering caused from traction control feature.
