Now that I've owned this car for four years, I'm glad to finally be getting rid of it! Talk about HEADACHES!!! Every time I fix something, there's something else waiting to go. Starting with electrical problems, the power widnows worked sporadically for months till they found the problem. Then the fuel pump went, or was it the belt tensionor that went next... I've replaced the intake gasket. Then the front hub-assemblies, half-shafts & tie- rod ends. Surprise, then the altornator went! Now the odometer has stopped & the guages have gone crazy... No waite maybe it's me going crazy! Best of all, now the whole engine needs to be resealed!
I bought my Monte LS with just shy of 70k on it and am finally selling it off to afford a vehicle to better accommodate a new addition to my family. I think a good portion of the complaints about this car can be attributed to 1.) people too lazy to fix their own stuff and 2.) this being the first Monte produced when they brought them back. More so 1 than 2. I've taken her on many road trips, and she has always been comfortable to drive for them! To this day she is 15 yrs old and still has the factory ac! Everything in the 90's wasn't user friendly when working under the hood no matter who the manufacturer was.
Engine V-6. The exterior is dark blue with 2 or 3 very small dings on the doors. The windows don't have any cracks. It has never been in an accident and has always been garaged. The interior is in very good condition. The air conditioning, gages, electric defroster in the back window and all power accessories are in working condition. Tires and brakes are in good conditon also.
This car is an unbelivable machine for what you get with it. The engine is a little rough around the edges but if you do a little work to it there won't be any problems for the future. I have completely tricked out my monte with the underbody kit and the ground effects with mirror tinted windows and it also has an engine that has only $1250 in work and pushes triple the amount of horsepower. A normal Z34 comes with about 225 hp mine is pushing 695 hp and can still reach higher. For those car lovers who like to do work on their cars this is one machine that should intrigue your senses. For those who really love montes this is one that you should look into.
