Vehicle2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewBeen driving for over 3 years. Driven quite aggressively, but the car has held up remarkably well. The engine works just like it was new. No major mechanical problems. Did have some problems with the side airbag on the leather seat, but it was fixed under warranty. I average 30 miles per gallon despite really hammering the throttle. I plan to keep this car until it dies. There is something to be said for the nice low-tech 3.8 liter pushrod. May not have the power of the Japanese DOHC's, but darn, its so reliable and efficient.
Best FeaturesI love the engine and all the dials on the instrument panel. I also really like that the ignition is on the dash instead of the steering column. Trunk space is great.
Worst FeaturesHad problems with the brakes. Dealer replaced them under warranty, but it was like pulling teeth to get that. Ground clearance is a bit of an issue. Traction control is totally stupid. I turn it off when it snows or rains.
