2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LTZ 2dr Coupe (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
We have put about 1200 miles on our '06 Monte. So far it has been a real fun ride. The interior is roomy enough. The kids fit fine in the back seat. Not real practial with children, but oh well. The heated seats and stereo are great. The car has a fairly stiff suspension and hugs the road well. You do feel most bumps in the road. Braking is very strong and the steering gives you a solid feel of the road. The car feels solid and substantial. The 3.9l V6 is plenty powerful for us with lots of passing power. Fuel economy is running about 23 around town and 27-28 on the highway. Overall, we are very pleased with the car and have not had second thoughts about our selection.
Heated seats, stereo, ride, acceleration/power, the economy computer, and oil life/tire pressue sensors.
The insteps on the doors could use a guard against being scratched. The pillar on the driver side creates a blind spot The spoiler traps water when washing making it difficult to get a good drying without lots of water drips.
