2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

I have driven the front wheel drive 2006 SS for a year now and been happy for chosing it over the other 300 hp 2 door sedans available. Although, not the most refined road manners compared to Swedish sedans I've owned, it delivers 26 mpg on sustained highway trips. It is roomier, lighter and faster than it looks. City mileage is 18 mpg at best, not to mention it should only be fueled with 93 octane. The Goodyears Eagles are a bit noisy between 45-60 mph, but grab very well at high speed manuvering. Not as refined as say the Infiniti GX35 coupe nevertheless I'll take the roomier cabin over flashy interior. Torque steer is noticable when you hard throttle at low speeds, but managable.

Favorite Features

Hands free OnStar telephone, XM radio, cargo net in trunk.

Suggested Improvements

Seat back control arm is not continous. A window defroster that does not rely on AC.
