2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I was very disappointed by this car. I've always bought North American, but no more. First, the interior console peeled and had to argue with dealership to replace. Now, paint is peeling in large chunks in wheel wells (hear this is common), taking side body paint with it. It is covered in paint "pops" (paint popping from underneath, not ships as dealer is trying to claim). I am a former paint chemist who knows coating failure when I see it. GM should be ashamed in this day and age of putting this quality on the road. That they do nothing about it says volumes about a car manuf. that I will no longer trust.
Beautiful car. Dismal quality.
Produce a quality product. Stop talking about it and start doing it. Fix the problems you create. Own up to them. My car now looks like a piece of crap next to my 9 year old Chrysler Stratus. And its not even 4 years old....Enough said.
