Confidence on 4 wheels
Stereo speakers cut out intermittently, although they're working now.
Rear defrost stopped working.
Heater blew cold air. Fixed it myself.
Small rattle in the driver's door.
I just returned from a 1,600 km road trip, and my Monte Carlo made the long drive a pleasure. Comfort, great fuel economy and enough power to go from 120km/h to 160 km/h in 3-4 seconds when passing. The car also gets a lot of second looks, because with midnight blue colour and custom rims, it looks very unique compared to all the 4-door cookie cutter cars on the road.
In the city it is also very quick and agile, with handling and brakes that are like what you would expect on a higher priced sports car.
Although there are a few minor quality issues, none of them affect the car's purpose of getting you where you want to go.
I have found this car to be extremely reliable, and I feel very safe and confident driving it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
