Monte and Impala are the exact same for interior/trunk space. It just feels like you have more room because the B pillar is further back in a coupe.

My wife didn't like it because, well, she just didn't I guess. It wasn't her car. The only reason why I'm glad I traded it was because of the car payment being cut in half.

watch for oxidation of them on the faces. 3 of mine are like that and cause of the machined face they are not easily fixed. eventually they will end up like this (not one from my car but one i ordered off ebay and sent back)

i just got back from the undercoater and he said gm stopped putting undercoating of any kind after 2005. and stopped giving anykind of corrosion warrantee, unless you live in a area they dont use any salt, and even then its rust through only so pretty much useless to anybody. that zeibarts not a bad deal it seems 300 and free resprays every year. i might take it back sometime and get the rust proofing done
