2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, a very fine car. Well designed with plenty of room and excellent gas mileage. Great looking too!


Favorite Features

roomy interior, good leather, functional and useful driver information center. Good power.


Suggested Improvements

Have glass moon roof panel retract inside the roof (as with some other GM models) and not slide open over then top of the roof which makes it look like some cheap after market product

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Fell in love with the Monte's after owning a '98. But now I am ready for a divorce. Paint is flaking off, sunroof no longer works, head light sockets keep melting, random rattling sounds under the car, bad a/c unit and broken seatbelt covers. And what did Chevy do about it when I called them? They gave me a survey about my Chevy ownership history and then told me that I was out of luck, that the paint problem was because of living in New England. Since I don't plan on moving, I apparently am discluded from owning any more Chevy's. Of course, after they told me I was on my own with all the other issues, that was the last straw, and I babied this car! Horrible trade in value.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, sporty looking, handles bumps well.


Suggested Improvements

Improved body integrity, better warranty.

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Compared to the 1999 Monte Carlo the new design 2002 drives like a barge. This design is harder to steer and the cruise control looses up to 5 miles per hours attempting to maintian the current speed. The whole car seems to be under powered.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage is better than the 1999 model.


Suggested Improvements

Time to re-think the design.

Review

This car was a poor choice. It looked more exciting than it is.. Fit and finish are terrible and the non stop problems are becomming depressing. I knew I should have gone with the Altima instead. Live and learn!


Favorite Features

NONE


Suggested Improvements

Everything needs improving.. Maybe Chevy needs to take lessons from the Japanese!
