Poorly Built Car
By Jarod Hart on
Vehicle2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewWhen I first bought the car I loved it. Drove/handled well, smooth ride, etc. Even liked the power (although I now feel like it is a little on the weak side). That has quickly gone downhill since. This past year alone I have invested $2500-$3000 in repairs. Since purchase with 29,000 miles I have had to rebuild the trans (at 54K), replace a high pressure line for the a/c, replace struts and bearing plates, replace temp. sending unit, resolder rear defrost, rebuild brakes all around (including calipers), replace tie rod ends, thermostat, theres a short in the headlights causing my daytime lihts not to function properly and my highbeam indicator to continuously flicker.
Best FeaturesI like the usual, pw, pl, keyless entry. Moonroof is nice in the summer. Digital thermostat and compass is nice to have. Homelink system is a plus.
Worst FeaturesBetter build quality. It is a joke that I have had to put as much money for repairs in the car as I have had, at the mileage it is at. My suggestion - do not buy.
