2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I fell in love with the car on a rental. Was very pleased with power,comfort and fuel efficiency. When a similar used SS came up at the local dealer,I couldn't help buying it.Loved the car Around 70000 KM, it started showing problems, acceleration seemed to miss, transmission shifting hard. These problems increased and now at 120000 KM, I had to spend 2000$ to get it to work so-so. Mass flow sensor was bad, I replaced both front wheel bearings, steering fluid is leaking, yellow light in dash always reporting some problem, windows wont go down on hot days,radio does stupid things, transmission shifts hard (850$ ), still hesitates at high accel. To many probs to list.
Style, power, comfort, stuning sound system.
Steering a little too sensitive Make it damn reliable for more than 100000KM! The alarm goes off all the time because of the poorly designed remote which gets activated by anything in your pocket!
