2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Before I bought the car I was considering the Ford Mustang. I am a tall person and the Monte Carlo fit my bill better plus the front wheel drive is better than the rear wheel drive on the Mustang. So far I've driven the car 700 miles and have been averaging 20.7 to 21 miles per gallon overall. Not bad for a v8. I also like the comfort of the leather seats with the lumbar support. If you have back problems its great. The stereo system is excellent, also the remote start is awesome too. Overall I'm very happy I bought the Monte Carlo instead.
My favorite features are the remote start heated leather seats the lumbar support in the seats and the performance and good gas mileage of the V8.
The position of the heater controls is in a real bad spot by the shift lever. And also I think the highway mileage displayed on the sticker price should be changed from 28 miles per gallon to more like 25 miles per gallon.
