2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
After spending a month with the car, I
am beginning to really like the car.
For everyday commuting it is very
comfortable and gets very good gas
mileage. What it isn't is a
performance beast that makes me want to
take it out for the hell of it and just
cruise around. For a SS moniker car I
expect it to outperform the average
sedan from Japan. Sadly, it just does
not cut it under the hood.
Stereo, message center, seems well
built, overall comfort and styling.
Handling is good for a front drive car.
Underpowered, needs the Bonneville
supercharged 3.8L as an engine option.
The sunroof design seems like an
afterthought. Not enough headroom.
