2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Car would be great if it was not for the poor quality on certain things. AC is out at 85,000 miles, both front hub assemblies replaced by 80,000 miles, moon roof shorts out, replaced radio amp, initially had a coolant problem which years later turned out to problematic, and a catalytic converter problem. There were a few more but I have forgotten. So it has been pretty expensive once the warranty was out. I take car of my cars and do not drive them hard. This would be an awesome car if it was more reliable. It looks sharp great gas for the size. I do get 28mpg. I would pay an extra grand at the beginning for better quality.
Improve quality and reliability. I want to buy GM so bad...but they make it so hard. Can't I get a quality vehicle from GM for 27 or 28 grand??
