It's Pretty Badass — I bought this car in April 2007. I've had my share of issues with it, but nothing surprising about buying a used car. Sometimes I wish I would've bought a newer model with an LS1 and manual transmission, but I got this for a decent price and I'm pretty attached to it now.

Pros: Fast, sounds good, looks pretty sweet, good LT1 engine and drivetrain, Magnaflow performance cat-back system, decent factory audio system. Lots of horsepower and torque too.

Cons: Pretty much all the electric motors throughout the car are crap - I had to replace the wiper motor, window motors, and antenna motor. Also, the suspension gets stiff and creaky in cold weather. Oh, and the headlight motors aren't that great either. LOL.

1997 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Review
Robert says:
Very comfortable. It was a 6-speed standard. I enjoyed the shifting part. Plenty of power! Down side of that was that I frequently had to replace tires.
