My newest Monte Carlo
By joecrt on
2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I turned 100,000 on my 1997 Monte Carlo
with no plan to sell. But I learned
about the incentives, went out to get a
Grand Prix and came home with a Gray
Metallic 2004 Monte Carlo. It's an SS
where the previous one was an LS - 25%
percent more powerful. This car has 4-
wheel disk brakes with ABS. I live in
Michigan and really noticed the
difference on ice and snow as my
previous car (which I loved) had rear
drum brakes. The stereo is awesome.
I'm thrilled with the car, my last one
made it to 92,000 without repairs and
then needed a right front ball joint.
Anyone from Michigan knows about the
condition of our roads in the winter.
Love the acceleration. Love the ride
and handling. Love the stereo. The
glove box has a metal hinge - my
previous one had a plastic hinge, which
I broke. The trunk has hydraulic lifts
so you don't crush your junk in the
I don't think they could have done a
better job and if this one is as
reliable as the last I'll be happy for
a long time.
