1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS 3.1L V6 from North America
I just got this car like a week and a half ago. When I purchased the car I didn't notice that the oil was bad. So the next day I go to take it in the get an oil change and they say that the car required specific coolant. The orange orange/pink stuff. So I had that flushed. When they tried to start the car it wouldn't start. I had it towed back to the dealership immediately. When the car got off of the tow truck it started right up and the dealership guys test drove it around the block, and said it was fine. I drive it for another day until it did the same thing while I was in the process of getting new tires. I had it towed AGAIN and they finally figured out that the module chip to the fuel pump was bad. Ever since, it has been okay.
The rear right shock absorber needs to be replaced.
The transmission shifts hard which kind of frightens me. Just thinking that it could possibly be going. I think I might have the trans. fluid changed and flushed this weekend. I heard that Lucas slip stuff helps it out a lot.
I love the car! its very sporty, pretty quick. Its very heavy though, I think GM should have just put the Z34 engine in all of them.
The sound system bumps like all new. I love listening to anything in it.
I like how it has the heater and AC temp's for both different sides. (driv. and pass.)
So far, I still like this car.
I just hope that this transmission doesn't have any serious problems in the near future.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
