Review of the 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

  • Generally a lackluster coupe in terms of styling and handling, but the addition of a supercharged SS version should spice things up a bit.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Spacious interior, low sticker price, strong acceleration with supercharged V6.

  • Cons

    Mediocre performance on non-supercharged models, bland interior with cheap materials, no passenger side-impact airbag.

  • What's New for 2004

    In an attempt to revive Monte Carlo's performance image, Chevrolet adds a supercharged SS version for 2004. The LS gets new 17-inch aluminum wheels, and there are a couple new appearance packages, Sport and Winner's Circle, available on the LS and non-supercharged SS.

Never again.

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I would never buy a Monte Carlo again. I love my car but I have had it for almost 3 years and have had nothing but problems. I am having to get my roters changed CONSTANTLY. If not, and I am on interstate and slowing down to get on the off ramp, it shakes horribly. Anyone else? Then sometimes when I turn real sharp, it makes a screeching noise and sounds like my power steering is going to go out. Now recently, it has been leaking antifreeze and overheating. I talked to a dealer and he, himself even said they are nice cars, but have many mechanical problems.




A very good car

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my car new. I have driven it 68000 miles. I have never had any problems with it, and I get very good gas mileage. It still looks new inside and out, and I hope to drive it another 5 or 6 years. For a Chevrolet, I think it is a very good product.




Great car

Great gas mileage. Roomy interior with lots of storage. Large aftermarket for parts.




Problems, problems, problems

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

The electronics on this car has been a nightmare!Air conditioner, several sensors, dash board assembly, multi function switch, catalytic converter, gas cap have all been replaced! Most all of these items have cost me over 500 every time! Multi function switch, when it goes bad headlights will go out on you going down the road! Of course there are never any re-calls for these problems and every time something else goes wrong dealer ship says those cars are known for this! I've called GM several times about the car and told them they sold me a piece of junk but they never offer to replace anything! Wish I had never laid eyes on this car. It will be traded off! GM never again !




Great performance and comfort

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my SS a year ago and couldn't be happier with it. It is fun to drive, comfortable and gets great fuel economy to boot! I average over 30mpg on the highway and usually get around 26mpg overall.




Love my monte

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I'd never been in a Monte Carlo until I test drove mine. It was love as soon as I sat in the driver's seat. Way comfortable, love how it handles. But it seems like it's lost power and isn't fast enough for me anymore. It didn't hold it's value as well as i was hoping it would have too but it's one hell of a solid car!
