the ss's are pretty slow...the ls's are even slower
How slow is slow? What are they packing under the hood? I've never really looked into them much.
I think they're not that great looking... there are a few around town here... and an SS that I've seen.. didn't look too impressive
I beat a Monte Carlo SS yesterday in my Mustang Gt. I think they are very slow.
What about the Impala?
all 200 hp.. nothing fantastic. just chevy crap
What about the Chrysler 300M??? I've heard that it's pretty fast. I really need to catch up on my car info.
The 300M is a nice car IMO. Not really fast...but all around a great car for a sedan. I seriously considered one after I test drove it.
I sorta like the 300M too, I have since Chrylser brought them back in production.
As for the Monte....ASS. Pure Ass. Thumbs down. blah
the Monte Carlos and the Impalas both suck ass!!! How do you go from V8 rear wheel drive muscle cars to V6 front drive, so-called, "sporty" family sedans.
Anyone know hp specs on the Monte Carlo and the 300M?

So what would you guys consider a good sedan?
the 300m is awesome. you feel like you are driving on air. my stealth is quicker but the 300 still has some balls. i really like the interior too, it is nice. my mom has a 01 300m and i drive it all the time.

Thanks Steven!!!

The 300M isn't faster even though it has more power? Does it weigh a lot more or something?

300m weighs in at 3560 something. i dont think they are geared for low end? ive never raced one.. but my uncle has one.. never been in it tho.. got me :confused:
What is a good sedan you ask? BMW M5. (A bit pricey, but for the best sedan in the world (IMO), it's a good price)
My buddy has a 99 300m. Pretty nice car but.......We took it out with my G-Tech Pro one day just to see what it can do. The best 0-60 he could get was around 8.0 sec with both of us in the car (about the same result with the autostick). Pretty slow considering it has 253hp or so.

The new Monte Carlos looks like crap. The SS looks a little better but it definately doesn't deserve the SS badge when it comes to speed.
monte carlo
once crap, always crap
even if it's fas crap, it's ugly crap
american crap
did i mention crap?
Its Fugly & wimpy
