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


Review

This is a great car, I would buy another in a heartbeat. The power of the 3.4L V-6 is great and it still gets great gas mileage. The ride is extremely smooth and quiet, like a luxury car. The interior is very comfortable and has held up well. The trunk is larger than any other car I have ever seen.


Best Features

Gas mileage (30+ highway on a full size car!) Made vacation cheap with 33 mpg and a roomy trunk that could carry everything we needed! Excellent power from the base engine.


Worst Features

It is somewhat hard to get out of the back seat.

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


Review

I bought my Tony Stewart 2005 SS a year and a half ago. I have had several people offer me more than I paid for it. This car is a keeper. If you have one hang on to it. It will be a collectable. What a sweet ride.

Review

I bought the Tony Stewart SS model and have had it for about a year. I have had no problems. This car is a real head turner. Don't buy anything but an SS--this baby will get out and go

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


Review

I have owned my Monte for 2 weeks. I love it, love it, love it. Where are the handling problems I have read about? It handles like a dream. No abs is fine with me, I want the control. As far as hydroplaning, not once have I experienced that. This car is peppy, and I finally found a car that agrees with me and my pickiness.


Best Features

Exterior and interior, awesome. It looks "bad" even when it sits still. Interior is roomy, and I have plush interior. Very comfortable.


Worst Features

None that I can think of. Keep up the good work Chevy. This car is awesome!

Review

I've put 18k miles on my Monte in seven months and it has been the best car I've owned. I bought it because I needed good gas mileage and after all the incentives and rebates last summer, loaded it was cheaper than a fairly stripped Civic. Every day I drive 70 miles round trip and I average 28MPG which I think is great considering I live at 9300' altitude and work at 5000' so its either going up hill in passing gear or down all the time. I have had no problems or repairs and its a very comfortable car to drive. If your concerned about its ability to handle snow and ice, get the traction control option and as long as the front end doesn't start plowing snow you will be fine.


Best Features

Traction Control Sunroof XM & sound system Steering Wheel Controls Comfortable ride gas mileage


Worst Features

Low ground clearence on the front end. Front seatbelts obstruct entry to rear seats.
