2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


It's a good daily driver that still turns heads almost like when it was new. I only drive about 11k mi. per year, but take some 7+ hour road trips. It's a big comfy car that looks sporty and gets great gas mileage. Seems very stable at high speeds. I got an extended warranty still in effect which has paid off. Stuff that failed: hazard flashers in 1st year; 3 year - main computer died as did the battery; 5-year - catalytic converter failed and burned up the intake manifold and seals, alternator went out, in the shop several times for the intermediate steering shaft (fixed now?), and a front wheel bearing went out. Some other weird computer quirks with interior lights and auto locks.

Best Features

Traction control, large interior space, engine power with great gas mileage, exterior styling with 2-tone sport package, sunroof, nice stereo

Worst Features

Needs improved interior styling
