Monte Carlo

  • 1,200 miles


I have a 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo with 56,000 miles on it. It has been nothing but trouble. Have had alot of repairs on it. Now it has a popping noise in the steering column, and loud front end noise. I was told the steering column problem had a recall on it, because one of my friends Chevy Impala had the same problem and theirs was fixed under recall. I contacted Chevrolet, they said there was no recall on my Monte Carlo. Seems if thre is a defective part on this model, GM should replace it with no charge.also, the frontend has had a very loud roar in it since we purchased it used with 12,000 miles on it. We replaced the tires, which did not help, and I was told the front hubs had defective bearings which did not have enough grease and could not be greased. My friend replaced the front hubs on their Chevy Impala with improved hubs and corrected the problem. I have had numerous electrical problems with this car, including the electric windows repaired four times, starter, altenator, turn signals and hazard flashers, paint, the car is supposed to be black, instead it's black and white polka dot. I believe this car should be declared a lemon under the lemon law. I have put way to much money into this car with just 56,000 miles on it. I would appreciate your help on my problems with this car, as I believe there should be a recall on the front hubs and the problem in the steering column. I can't afford to keep spending money on this car, I just keep throwing good money after bad.I think GM should repair these problems at no charge. Thank you very much for your time.

We have had this problem since the car was approx. 6 months old. The engine cradle has been changed and the problem has returned. It has been to the service dept. 4 times and they just keep us on a waiting list. The problem is in the steering. When you turn the steering wheel to the left or right, you get a banging or loud creaking noise. We have been told it is safe to drive, but it seems to be getting worse and we are fearful something is going to let go while we are driving. We are very satisfied with the car other then this problem...I hope you can give us some kind of advise or answer to our problem, because the dealer sure has not.
