Our 2000 Monte Carlo SS has been a solid car. Lately though the steering was becoming slightly loose compared to what it was not too long ago and when turning, there was a clunking soung. Apparently this is a common ailment on these cars. My parents took the car into GM to have it looked at and fixed. Turns out it needed a new steering shaft (?) and upper control arms on both sides. I believe the steering components were covered under extended warranty, the upper control arms were not. However, GM picked up half the bill for it, and we're grateful and happy. The streering shaft is on back order, but everything is tight and good again. GM continues to take care of us.
