1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34 3.4L DOHC V6 from North America
Looks good, that's it
Constantly replaced vacuum lines.
Catalytic converter clogged.
Fuel pump going.
I had got this car in 2007 for my 16th birthday, I was so happy because it was the exact car I wanted. The engine was powerful, but sucked gas back like crazy.
Unfortunately I owned this car only 3 months and less than 2000kms; it broke vacuum lines on 4 different occasions in 1 month, and then a clogged cat/dying fuel pump in the last month of ownership. Instead of fixing it, I traded it in at a dealership for $3500 credit on another car.
Overall I don't recommend these cars with the 3.4L V6; they're powerful (215HP/205LBS-Torque), but it's just not reliable enough to warrant a purchase.
If you really want a 90's Monte Carlo, go with the 98+; they use the 3800 Series II engine, which is much better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
