Model Highlights

Both sporty and luxurious, the 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is offered in three models: the LS, the more luxurious LT, and the high-performance SS. The LS and LT both get a 211-horsepower 3.5L V6 with variable valve timing, and the SS gets a 303-horsepower 5.3L small-block V8. The V8 uses Active Fuel Management technology to help decrease fuel consumption when coasting or cruising. Both engines are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.

The top-of-the-range SS builds on the model's NASCAR heritage and strong following in the Southeast, with a distinct front and rear appearance, Corvette-inspired bright exhaust outlets, and an available Rally Stripe package.

The front-wheel-drive Monte Carlo claims to offer good handling in all variants, with gas-charged struts and stabilizer bars used front and back. Two different suspensions are available on the Monte Carlo. The FE2 suspension standard on the LS and LT has a calibration that emphasizes ride quality and comfort while maintaining sporty handling; LT model is offered with larger 17-inch wheels for better high-speed control. The top FE4 suspension gets larger front and rear stabilizer bars, along wit 18-inch wheels and W-rated performance tires for a stiffer ride to handle the V8's power.

Fuel economy is also a strong point on V6 models, with an EPA highway rating of 31 miles per gallon.

Inside, the Monte Carlo's interior has a cleaner, simpler appearance than past models, with available Nuance leather seating that brings center-cushion French seams, firmer padding, and improved lumbar support.

All Monte Carlos get four-wheel disc brakes; ABS and electronic brake-force distribution are also standard on the LT and SS. Seat-mounted side air bags, which provide head and torso protection for front-seat occupants, are optional.

The base LS model comes equipped with most popular conveniences, like air conditioning, cruise control, remote keyless entry, and an AM/FM/CD sound system. LT models upgrade to steering-wheel audio controls, an upgraded gauge cluster, dual-zone climate control, a remote vehicle start system, and an MP3-compatible audio system with auxiliary input jack. The SS--in addition to the V8, appearance changes, and a number of mechanical upgrades--gets interior features similar to those of the LT. Notable options on the top models include a sunroof, upgraded eight-speaker audio, and heated leather front seats.


Pros

Available powerful V8; smooth ride; front-seat comfort; highway fuel economy.


Model News

For the 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, the 3.9L V6 has been dropped. Suspensions have been retuned across the line, and a factory-installed remote starting system is now available. The mid-range LT model gets increased standard equipment and the LTZ model has been discontinued. A new Rally Stripe package is available on the SS, XM satellite radio is now standard on the SS, and 17-inch alloy wheels are now standard on the LT.


Value Writeup

The affordably priced, front-wheel-drive 2007 Chevy Monte Carlo is one of the few affordable luxury coupes to offer a V8, and the V6 models boast impressive fuel economy on the highway. It also stands out for offering both an agreeable ride and sharp handling.

Summary
This defect can 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. General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Buick LaCrosse, 2006-2011 Buick Lucerne, 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille, 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS, 2006-2014 Chevrolet Impala, and 2006-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the weight on the key ring and road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.

Consequence
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Additionally, a key knocked out of the run position could cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). GM's number for this recall is 14299.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
