Surprising Good For An Economic Car. — Bough a color Black one in sept/2008. I was expecting to have many problems with it because this is a GMC, but no, that thing just keep running. It has 60000 Km now (Dec/2010) and only had a problem with the fuel tank cap, changed under warranty, in the 1st week of owning it. Headlights are awesome (low beams more intense than normal high beams in other cars), reasonably comfortable for a cheap car. Power is fine. Plastic everywhere is ok -> I have no rust at all (this cars sleeps on the street all the time). Cheap in gas. Power nothing accesories -> less stuff that can get broken. Always starts, so far in -30C it still did start without plugging it in.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pontiac Wave 5 Review — this review is for pontiac wave 5 hatchback. solid car, good in winter (with tigerpaw uniroyal tires....). no problems after 100,000km. car is simple to make with minimal electronic features, so it is simple to fix yourself. nothing complicated, no special tools. the car itself was new and cheap, gets the job done. sore ass as chair not comfortable :( oh, one thine is the CD player doesn't work until car warms up.. ya, that's anoying.. but whatever, just wait 5 minutes. besides, i didn't buy the car to play CDs

Pontiac G3 Wave 2009, To Avoid — A real trash can, 10 times or more at the dealership for repair; rattles, engine, transmission, worst time; 10 weeks. Bad re-sale value, no feeling at all on pedals, bad suspension, terrible sound system. not even close to have good seats. bad fuel economy, What a mistake to buy this car. By the way, it's not and ECOTEC engine, it as a timing belt, and it cost me 317$ +tax just the belt.

Overall I Give It An Epic Fail — Where do i start with this thing??? I feel sorry for anyone who actually has fooled themselves into the mindset that the G3 is an acceptable form of transportation. Thankfully this plastic childs toy is just a loaner for use while my HUMMER is in the shop. I will admit getting 35 MPG and filling up with change for a $20 are awesome feelings!!! This car has horible handling, absolutely NO POWER no power anything mirrors seats windows doorlocks no leather no navi, not even a dimming rear view mirror. the interior is cheap and windnoise starts at a paltry 35mph. Amazingly, the windshield wipers work well. I think my 4wheeler has more power. overall it FAILS so miserably it might be considered a WIN.
