2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo ss 3.8 V6 from North America
Overall it's a good buy
The monte ss is a beautiful looking car and fun to drive. I have a white 2002 monte ss. However I have had problems mostly with rotors and calipers since I bought the car new in 2002..Also recently noticed problems with the paint flaking and I also had to have the cat. converter replaced. The engine itself has been very strong and the car handles very good.
The car handles very good overall except on rain or snow.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Yes I agree with the last comment about the paint flaking on my white 2002 Monte Carlo SS that was purchased new. This flaking shows no undercoat and is right down to the metal.
I paid just over $40,000 for this car and it looks like crap. Plus I also have a problem with my ABS and Trac light always coming on, not sure if this is a sensor issue or what. Should I be contacting Chev and does someone have a phone number for this paint issue especially? Obviously it's past the warranty stage but has been chipping and peeling for a couple of years.
