Very nice, solid car. VERY FAST and gets a little hairy from the torque steer. The stereo needs to be premium, as mine is just the CD player and needs the full upgrade. The car is quiet and sound. The mileage (18-20mpg combined) is a downer with the premium gas, but for the cost and the ride, it is worth it. The 18" low profile tires are stiffer than all Monte's I've owned, but for the handling and cornering, responsive steering, it's OK. A sharp, head turning car! Get a radar detector, you'll need it.
