2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Supercharged SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I own a 2005 Monte Carlo SS Supercharged, and i fell in love with it instantly. This car is the 3800 series L67 supercharged. The previous owner kept it in very good condition. The SS models have the full guage cluster (Supercharged - added PSI guage / Non Supercharged - added Volt guage / both added Oil Pressure guage). The acceleration has a fun giddy up. The handling is good and easy to control. I've gotten compliments and people looking, the black w/ galaxy silver ss trim is an eye catcher. LOTS of room, and lots of trunk space. Compared to modern cars of course it falls behind a bit in performance but was a player of its time period and it still preforms like new today. The only downfalls are driving in the snow can be a little tricky, and all the plastic in the car. I've heard these cars lasting a long time, and i hope mine does too. 10/10 would buy again.

2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Supercharged SS 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

Looks good, inside and out. Love the light Gold color! Stereo sounds great! Comfy ride, in town or on Freeway. I did however have an issue with the headlights not working at night, while the day running lights DID still work. It needed a new multi function switch. Rather pricy part! The read tail light lens are getting full of hair line cracks in em too. That dont look to good, will have to replce soon I recon? Good milage! Friends all like it too. Good cold duel control AC, nice! Power everything! The fuel gage now is acting a lil squirlly. Dont always read right. I'm being told it may need a whole new instrument cluster. Also told, thats NOT cheap either! All in all though, love this car!


Best Features

The style of the body. The sound system. The QUITE confortable ride!


Worst Features

Better rear tail light lens, that dont get all the lil hair line cracks in em. More dependable multi function/bright light switch! I hear that is a very common problem on these!!

2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car as a Certified Used Vehicle from Lithia in Alaska. From the sticker in the trunk and how it got shipped around, with a lack of winterization, I determined it was a rental until its 27000 miles, then was sent around to be sold. Its currently at 58000 miles. The car is great. I love how it doesn't feel cheaply built, I love how the doors are heavy, as with the rest of the car. It sticks to pavement with the greatest of ease. I bought Triple Tread tires for it, and it gets around well in the winters with ice, but I'm sure with Blizzaks it would be a tank. However, its not really a winter car in that respect. The power on the LS isn't that great, and the LS cant be chipped.


Best Features

Weight. Design. Power. Awesome power, just awful that there are no chips to put into the LS.


Worst Features

This car has a lot of road noise. I bought the spray on noise dampener for the undercarriage and quiet tires, but the road noise is pretty loud. Other than that, FANTASTIC car.
