2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
First of all I picked the Monte Carlo SS because I love driving and around my area there are many winding country roads which makes this car a lot of fun to drive. Softer suspensions are no fun at all on these kinds of roads. The power of this car makes it easy to to pass slower moving traffic and is also quite economical on highways. Even though I am 59 I feel 30 driving this car. It is very comfortable when driving on highways or other smooth road surfaces.I usually change cars every 4 years but I will be keeping this one much longer. This is my best and most fun to drive car I've ever had. Quite a switch from 2 Malibu's in a row to this car.
My favorite features are #1-the power #2-Onstar #3-hands free phone #4- appearance (get many compliments from many people) #5-dashboard #6-18"wheels help comfort
The most important improvement would be to have the Monte Carlo SS fitted with a variable transmission. Also this car would sell much more than it does if GM advertised it as much as the other cars in its lineup
