2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


This was my first brand new car ever! and I have some doubts if I will ever buy a Chevy product again. At 6000 miles the belts had to be replaced. At 12000 miles the steering shaft cracked and had to be replaced. by 16000 miles the water pump along with rotors/calipers had to be replaced. Around 22,000 miles it was the rotors again. 28,000 miles it was rotors/calipers and the A.B.S modules again. The car has 40,000 miles on it and rotors again. i live in chicago and im sure some it has to be city driving, but i really dont abuse this car at all. The interior design has improved over the previous model but mechanical it much worse.

Best Features

Daytime running lamps. The 10 minute power option delay. 17-18 mpg in the city. That new car that had 7 miles on it, felt well built and had no problems. Enough power for city/highway driving,

Worst Features

Build quality and long term reliabilty. A dual cup holder in the fron. This car is very low to the ground. Maybe raise it
