06 Monte Carlo SS
By Chris Paffett on
2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have a bias for the shape of the roofline on 2006-2007 Monte Carlos. For me it has lots of interior room, something that cost above 40K in a Asian or Euro coupe. It is very fast when you stand on it. I have upset at least the following imports; Audi Q7 with V-8, BMW 650 convertble, Porsche boxster. Yes it is a front wheel drive and a amiable performer one click down from the Pontiac GTO and the last year of the Z28 Camaro. It will deliver 25 to 28 mpg on flat highways when driven at speed limit, I average about 23 mpg on highway due to spirited driving. The Goodyears hum at around 45-55 mph then get quiet. Plenty of trunk room, leather seats are firm and so is suspension. Like it a lot.
Hands free phone when paying for OnStar.
Coin slots or storage near the cup holders. Door pockets will swallow coins due to drainage slots and rattle when shut. Make a better seat back adjustment lever.
