Pros

Plenty of power, reliable powertrain, decent mileage, plenty of room for hot chicks

Cons

UGLY, cumbersome, slow steering, lousy brakes, seemed to have new rust spots every time I looked at it.

Fast In A Straight Line, Ugly, Can't Stop Or Turn-very Gm — It was a good first car. Fast enough to win street races against punks in civics, yet stealthy so the cops never busted you. The huge size meant it was safe. In typical pontiac fashion its performance was limited to straight line acceleration. Had lots of gadgets to break, paint was terrible when new

The Best Fwd 4door American Sedan For The 90s! — It sounds like a muscle car and accelerates lke one to. Its fun to drive in the winter becauxe it is front wheel drive. It get ok gas mileage. It might get better mileage if I didnt drive the way I do but then that takes out all the fun.

Fast In A Straight Line — My dad owns this car. 3800 Series II Supercharged V6 makes for a fast car just don't try and turn at speed. This car is at home on the open highway. Cruises very nice. Around town it does use alot of gas. This car has over 300K and is till running strong.

Pros

lots of options for a low price, spacious

Cons

many interior plastic parts have broken, could use a little more power

25

A Good Car For The Money, Easy For Work On, Spacious — reliable engine but cheap plastic interior parts. not the slowest thing on the road, but could still use noticably more power. comfortable, plenty of options for the money, a decent looking car for being a mid nineties pontiac. very few aftermarket parts however

Bad Car — it drives ok but i wouldnt reccomend it to anyone who is looking for good gas mileage it will get you around but like i said the gas isnt that great unless you like getting 16 miles per gallon provided that it has 172000 miles on it
