2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I have purchased 2 SS Monte's and while
I have loved them both, I need to ask
why GM cheapened it in 2004. I did a
favor for my inlaws and passed along my
2000 SS with only 31000 and ordered my
2004 expecting it to be identical, boy
was I surprised. GM removed the gear
selection from the console, took out
the glove box light, did away with the
coin holder, and took off the "Monte
Carlo" emblems from the side. And what
is up with all of the mirrors being
black except on the yellow paint. I
love my SS, but I can't believe that GM
removed some of the "nice to have"
items to gain a few bucks, shame on you.
Sunroof, ride, everything.
GM quit being cheap and the Monte
lovers will keep coming back !
