Best overall combo ofcomfort and
handling of any car I have ever driven.
Bought mine used 8 years ago for almost
nothing, and currently have 160000
miles on it. Extremely reliable, but
has a few quirks which are minor if you
understand them , and potentially major
if you don't. These have killed the
reputation, but also result in a great
used car buy for the informed if you
can still find one.

When I got my red 1990 Monaco ES, it was
a fabulous sedan. Everything was
powered, including both front seats and
the antenna. The MSRP was high at over
$20k, but slow sales led to hefty
rebates and discounts, which made the
car a steal at under $16k. This car is
really a Renault sedan, and was the last
Renault in the states as part of
chrysler's obligation to Renault when it
purchase AMC. Parts are a bit pricy, but
fortunately few have been needed. With
proper care, this car carried on though
many a MI winter without a hitch, and it
took many cross country trips in the
heat of summer with no disappointments.
New model is virtually identical to Eagle Premier. LS and ES trim levels are available, with ES including four-wheel disc brakes, touring suspension and alloy wheels. An automatic is the only transmission choice.
