Nothing but headaches
When I purchased this car I was in love. It was very classy looking. Drove and handled beautiful. I have nothing but problems with it. Electrical, replaced catalytic converter 2 times. On my 3rd muffler system. My carpet on the driver's side is torn very badly. I had leaks where water would come in when it rained. My passenger side would get inches of water. Same with the drivers side in the back. Replaced head gasket, just replaced radiator. Had to have ac fixed. Radio and amp replaced. Still doesn't work. I only have 180, 000 on it. Not bad for a 2001. I have a folders about 4 inches thick of all the repairs. My guess is I got a lemon. I have replaced every wheel sensor. I dont think I will ever purchase another chevy.
The best car I ever owned.
I literally traveled a toured the United States with a 1977 Monte Carlo. Then did it again in a 2001 Monte Carlo. It was a beast. Both of them. I owned 5 various ones. I never ever had one break down. A dream to drive. The seat got crushed in and a little difficult to sit for long periods but a trip to the scrap yard for 20 bucks then got you a fresher seat easy to bolt in or take out. I had a flat tire occasionally that was kind of hard to shove up under the body and onto the lugs but the miles together were well worth one little thing I overlooked. Steroes were and still are easy to change. 8 cylinder 350 Montes were very good on gas too. I wish I still had one.
A great find of a used car
The car I purchased is very clean, all original no rust at all with a few minor flaws, I replaced the exhaust from the cat back, replaced the headlight assemblies, the tail light assemblies, and put new custom wheels on it and stayed in my budget of 8147.00. I had been rear ended 45 mph hit in my 2012 honda civic with only 31000 miles original owner, it was totaled out for 8147.00. I drive maybe 100 miles a week or less. The car does sit under a carport and covered.
