Fun Pontiac — I owned this car during my college years. It got me through many 300 mile trips to and from college, as well as trips across the country. It sounded great after installing a magnaflow cat-bat exhaust. The only downfall was the ever increasing maintenance as it reached the 100,000 mile mark. More maintenance than other cars I've owned at the same mileage.

Good Car — gas mileage is good, needs front struts, window motor on the passengers side is out, has the annoying clicking all the time but getting it fixed. accelerates way better than the talon I had. about as good as the regal. not as sporty as the gt I had

Little Red Hottiac! — I love the COLOR and the Looks of the car. It's quite comfortable and seats 5 comfortably as well. The gas mileage is good and maintenance is inexpensive. Performance on this car is pretty good! It accelerates, brakes and handles well on the road. I felt safe and in full control while driving! This car is Simply cool and fun to drive!!

Great Car — Great car, had it for awhile now and it handles exceptionally and really does everything you could possibly want. Though my car has a lot of after market parts i still think its great either way. The only thing i would change is the head lights. very hard to win the right way and hard to replace.

I Would Never Own Another — I bought this car thinking that it would be a great buy with my kids but come to find out after driving a semi for more than 3 years I hate the car I think I have a goose egg that will never go away....the car is to low and uncomfortable to go long distances in....cant get tires for it in my town have to drive 500 miles for tires....cant get to my fishing spots in it either.

Reliable Car With Only 77,000 Miles??? — This is a very reliable car that gets great gas mileage. Plus, there's only approximately 77,000 miles on it. I just had a oil change on the car in June. Plus, the car was just inspected in June and passed with flying colors!

Fun Sporty Sedan For The Family Or Low Key Person — This car is a great car for the family person that wants a little sport. Accelaration is enough to get you going with a 3.4 V6 engine that has 175 horsepower its of the highest grade of stock GA's. This car comes stock with a SC/T package which includes a Front to back kit with fog lights and a s poiler and Chrome rims. gas milage is estimated at 20 city I think so its okay. No major maintence problems in the 5 years my mother has had the car just some electronical issues which was a quick fix. This car is a ton of fun and a looker.
