2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
A very good balance of performance and luxury. Unfortunately my catalytic converter clogged, shot-up my EGR pipe and melted my intake manifold. Completly covered by the warrenty. Otherwise, very, very reliable. And the aftermarket is making some very affordable, as well as reliable go-fast goodies(!) for this 3800 engine.
Simple dash lay-out with no distracting silver rings around the gauges. Much easier to read at 55, without distracting color rings!
A factory trans-temp gauge would be nice, but since this car has ceased production, I would recomend a few aftermarket goodies. A lower 180 T- STAT + W-Pump pully & anti-pogo kit from ZZP, goodyear assurance plus tires, same type & DIA as stock, .4" wider ($20.00 more, but better traction in snow!)
