I took the car to different garage and found that the multi function switch in the steering column was bad an...

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Recalls

Engine Oil Leaks Onto Exhaust Manifold

Engine oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold, causing a fire hazard. This concern was addressed in previous recall notifications, but improvements to the repair have been made. Dealers will make improved repairs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Reviews

Love my 2003 SS! 611,200km and still running! Just changed my first water pump and alternator in it this winter!
Overall this car is great. I live in the Midwest which means I must handle extreme weather--cold or hot. This car handles very well on ice, however, it doesn't take much to get this car stuck in snow since it rides so low to the ground. For some reason, the radio facing gets abnormally hot to the touch. One major headache has been the breaks specifically the rotors. I've had to rotate and repl...
I have been pretty rough on this car but it has served me well. The only issues I've had are with the oxygen sensors and the catalytic converter. Both have had to be replaced multiple times. Other than that I have 132k miles on this baby and she still has some get up and go.
