2000 Pontiac Firebird Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 10 reviews
The 2000 Pontiac Firebird was fast approaching its final year, bringing to an end one of the last remaining holdovers from the muscle car era. As such, few changes occurred in 2002, aside from some new colors and new 17-inch wheels for the WS-6 V8. A re-engineered throttle in the 6-speed manual transmission was also new. The 2000 Firebird was offered as a 2-door coupe or convertible in either the base 3.8, 200-hp V6 or the Formula and Trans Am V8. The convertible was offered only as a base and Trans Am trim.
If you don't mind paying the extra insurance, the V8 models are the true powerhouses. The Formula and Trans Am 5.7 V8 rates 305 hp, but with the WS-6 performance package, revs up to 320 hp, hitting 0-60 in 5 seconds, making it one of the fastest Firebirds ever. The base model V6 can also be outfitted with its own performance package, which adds dual exhaust pipes and a limited-slip differential. ABS brakes and dual front airbags are standard on all 2000 Firebirds. A 5-speed manual is standard in the base, with a 4-speed auto transmission option. A 6-speed comes standard in the V8 models.
Owners love the aggressive style of the 2000 Firebird, although its dragon-like flared nostril scoops are up for debate. Mostly they love the V8 power, road-hugging grip and tight cornering of this modified street racer. Gas mileage is a nice surprise, though the V8 will go through a lot of it. Affordability, a good sound system, and nice cargo capacity are added benefits. And though it fits cargo with the fold-down rear seats, that's about all the rear is good for. Passengers find it cramped and hard to access. The rear spoiler causes several problems for drivers, including blind spots and a tendency to collect rain water, which it then dumps into the trunk when you open the hatch. Rattling, cheap plastic interior parts, low ground clearance and no traction on wet roads are big downsides.
