I have a 2002 Monte Carlo.the problem with the car is that both doors passenger and driver door has damaged and bended both fenders. I have seen a lot of Monte Carlo cars like mine. With the doors bending the fenders it's hard to get in and out of my car and it also causes water to get in my doors every time it rains causing my speakers to not play right.
