I own a 2005 Special Edition Monte Carlo and this car is very reliable and a very good bargain. Not only is this car fast, but it has a great look to it. The only thing bad about this car, is that it is front wheel drive.

This car is scary---it's a great machine, impressive and amazing. I just hope Chevy brings them back so I can keep buying them. It's got speed, safety, GREAT gas mileage and the looks inside and out are fantastic, I love this car, some of my friends have them and they talked me into test driving one--after the first block I was in love and sold on it. I love the fact that the car has a lot of room in it, I never feel cramped or unsafe.

The 2005 Monte Carlo is an excellent car for the price. Its strong points include, a very nice balanced suspension, a very comfortable passanger interior and a price that can't be beat for a car of this size. In the LS (which is what I own) I would have to say that acceleration is only addiquite(I can only assume this would improve with the LT or SS). The steering is decent some have said it is too stiff but it works for me. Some of the interior materials seem somewhat cheap, but at the same time still look good. I really like the exterior styling on the Monte it is bold but not to bold and won't be confused with anything else on the road. I think the car shines when driven on the highway. It handles bumps and dips in the road well and keeps engine and wind noise to a minimum. This to date is a car that I would defintly reccomend. I can't however comment on reliability since I have only owned the car for about 6 months.

I have the LS the interior is cheap plastics on the dash are falling off, slow to take off plenty of power over 60 mph, 32mpg also developed a slip in the trans when taking off from a dead stop at 120k mile. I bought this car with 87k miles on and i use it as a work car. The best thing about this car is the gas mileage.

I bought the car new (12 miles on it). My 2005 does not like the cold weather. When you start out from a dead stop at a light i.e., the car sits there for a few seconds and then feels like it jumps forward suddenly. The engine really runs well when it's warm weather and you cruise about 80 mph.
