Good Drivetrain, but not much else! by SeanMan in Ontario on 09/12/2008. Trim: 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Car has nice styling, powerful acceleration, great gas mileage, and a sporty feel to it. Reliable drive train.
Cons: The interior parts are cheaply made, especially those made of plastic. Most on my car are broken. The electrics on this car are what will burn you as it gets older. Lights, signals, wipers, trunk release, windows. They all begin to act up as the car gets up there in age and the repairs are pricey. (Mine is at 280,000km right now.) Engine and tranny can get leaky and must be fixed. Spark plugs are very pricey to replace because of the labor. (They're hard to get at!). Replacing the battery is an all-day affair due to its asinine positioning under the washer fluid tank! My gas tank rotted out and had to be replaced at 275K.
Overall review: GM got the drivetrain right, but not much else on this car. There are more reliable used car values out there.
