Pros

Decent gas mileage and quite reliable.   Seats entire family very confortably and great for long trips.   Quite reliable considering odometer is into the mid 130,000 range and does a great job getting my kids around.

Cons

The only thing I could possibly complain about is the sound system.   Stock radio CD player still works okay but speakers are sketchy with scrackling and loss of radio display a couple years ago.

Love This Car And Very Happy To Have Bought It. Hoping It Continues To Perform Well. — I love the power of the 3.8 liter V-6 engine. It definitely has the good pickup I enjoy, but is easy to drive at the same time. Tons of room even though I am quite tall and has plenty of space in the back seats.

Pros

Amazing , is probably a word that summarizes this car. Anti-lock brakes, 3.8 Six cylinder engine sleek style only car I know that has 4 doors and still passes as a sports car. Very reliable. Automatic transmission, power lock doors, seat warmers,  power windows, sun and moon roof, a/c and heat work like a charm.

Cons

Leather seats are bigg no no especially in the summer months in tennessee, when the power steering pump goes out trust me you will hear it, gas can be a bit pricey

Amazed And Highly Satisfied — This car is great for someone who is 6ft and under, the power of this car is amazing especially since its all stock from the dealer. The car has a 3.8 liter engine under the hood which is very durable, keep your oil changed and he will stay strong. I usually put a gas treatment in after every oil change followed by 100% gasoline not that ethanol stuff it can harm your engine and kill your horsepower. The only thing about this car I've had problems with is the power steering pump, other than that great car.

Very Sporty — I really enjoy driving this car. It looks really great and I enjoy turning up the music with the sunroof open on a sunny day. The only downside is about the AC not working. But, it's really not that hot outside around here anyways!

Great Power And Awesome Handling — I loved this car just to small for me and my long legs, It had lots of power and great handling and excellent on gas would be a great 1st car for a girl going to school and wanting to come home every weekend to see family and friends

The Cost To Keep Her Well Groomed And Running Great @ Her Age. — When I purchased this car is was just for going shopping and making it to all my appointments and to be of service to others if needed. Well I did not know what I had unit I was getting so many question as to how much do I want for the car and is it for sale, NO! Well I was surprise to hear and see it was the young people that wanted my car. So with that knowledge I had a Remote Starter with an Alarm system put on it. Wasn't thinking...I did purchase it from a young Amish Boy who was returning to the way of the Amish People driving there horse and buggie. I have known them for about 9 years now...He gave me all the paper work of the up keep and cost of the repairs he did. I enjoy this car so that sometime I would just go for a drive on the back roads of the city (the road less travel) as if I was going out of town...

Pros

the 3800s are bullet proof

Cons

not as respected as they should be

25

Nice Car, Dead Relaible, And Can Be Faster Than Almost Anything For Less Than Half The Price — stock... nothing special. but after all my mods, i run side by side with evo. and even with all the mods included, and other interior/ exterior upgrades to look better. its still less than 1/4 of the price. all in all a great mod car

Pros

The engine. the 3.8 has some torque to it.

Cons

The brakes! It needs drilled/slotted rotors, and some better pads.

25

It May Have A Few Little Things Wrong With It, But Its A Great Car — Man, i love this car. its the first car thats ever been in my name. Currently, it has a couple little things wrong with it, and something that i need to get fixed. But other than that, its a great car. Definitely an attention getter. I have a lot of faith in the 3.8 under the hood.. except for my city milage. lol but even stock, i think the dual ehaust has a great note, with the rumble that you would want.

Lots of power, 3.8L Supercharged can keep up with the best.

Cons

GM did a horrible job putting these cars together.

Pontiacs Need To Be Treated With A Lot Of Car. Great For Power/high Speeds, Terrible For Reliabitly. — Car drives, and performs amazingly. Only negatives I can think of are the build quality. Several parts tend to fail, and some of the designs seem poor. The cost is pretty high, only due parts that always seem to break a lot. Over all I love it.
