1982 Pontiac 6000 Review
Horrid. — I could just type "bad" 40 times and get my point across. the 1982 Pontiac 6000 was horrid. It was bad on gas, smelled like gas, had electrical issues, gas pump issues, even after it was replaced, and couldn't be kept in-line, even with new suspension components. It was horridly slow, and not good looking.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: It made it from A to B
Cons: It broke down 5 times between there.
