2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS 3.8 V6 from North America
An attractive Super Sport speed machine
So far I have only had a few problems with the vehicle, none of which however have been serious or affected the cars ability to drive.
The traction control doesn't work, but I'm told it can be fixed relatively easily.
The battery gauge needle points down instead of up.
The temperature gauge sometimes doesn't work, which is due to a bad sensor.
The last thing is not a mechanical problem, but still a nuisance, and that is the cars gas mileage isn't the best, but it may be due to a dirty fuel filter, I'm not positive.
The SS package makes the car look more aggressive than the basic LS models with the Silverstone Metallic ground effects, SS badges, and larger wheels and tires.
It handles amazing, especially on the freeway going around tight bends, thanks to the wide tires and heavy duty sport suspension.
The overall car is larger than most other coupes of the same year, and has a large comfortable interior with a equally large back seat area.
The engine provides plenty of power, and the transmission shifts smoothly and quickly with no "shift shock".
There is no vibration in the steering wheel when driving, due to a titanium brace in the dash.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
