2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This is the third Monte I have owned. I still have my 2004 Monte SS. This 2006 is head and shoulders above the previous years of Montes. It is quiet, smooth riding and responsive. It appears to have much more quality than the previous models. It turns a lot of heads. The styling reflects NASCAR inspiration and excitement.
Love the leather heated seats, the Nascar appearance. The premium sound is great. Road handling is superb. No oversteer or roll in sharp curves. The sound of the engine is deep, throaty, like the old glass packs of the 70's
It is a bit squirrely to handle off the line when you punch it, but a little practice and one can compensate for it. I an not getting the 28 MPG advertised yet but I only have 500 miles on the car, hoping it will get better.
