The 2nd WORST car I've ever owned!

Bought this car from a friend - it's the Z34 model - who takes immaculate care of their vehicles so I figured it was a safe bet - boy was I wrong! Within the first 2 months the valve gasket started to leak and fouled the plugs, well that was $400.00 to fix and I didn't have the car for over a week. In the next month, the windshield wipers stopped working - was it the wiper motor or the relay switch? Well it cost another $400.00 to figure out it was neither, there was a short in the wire! In the meantime, the lever that controls where your heat or ac blows from stuck on defrost and floor - not even going there to figure out how to fix that! Now my driver side window is stuck down and it's 50 degrees outside and getting colder! This car is a money pit!!

1996 Chevy Monte Carlo Z34

It is a great car even with plenty of miles onit. The 3.1 V6 is the most reliable engine I have worked with. The handling is excellent and can turn on a dime. The only downside I could possibly find is the exterior styling, but hey, it's 1996 and with the rear spoiler it almost makes up for it. Bottomline, it's a good car.
