    2.4l Is The Best. — I have 167k on this little guy and et me tell you this car still has it. If you plan on getting this ride do your self a favor and buy the 2.4L ECOTec.

    Pros: 2.4L, nice interior, front wheel drive with trac control(work's great in the snow).

    Cons: under the hood is for the tec savy, grease monky kinda guy (or gal)

    Fun, But Not Gas Friendly — Harly never had any mechanical problems with it. ABS work great. Has a traction control notification to let you know when you don't have traction. Very nice torquey V6 pumping out 200 lbs-ft. Great 0-35mph acceleration. Nice interior space. Gas mileage is respectable for a V6 and a 4-speed with 18 city, 26 highway. Old mpg was 20 city, 28 hwy. I've gotten 24 mpg overall during summer.

    Pros: Great engine, exhaust note. Reliable.

    Cons: Gas mileage isn't so great for a compact.

    Great Car, But Lots Of Easy To Fix Problems — Ignition went haywire on me and I've had to replace the alternator and egr valve and a couple odds and ends, but overall we love it! Good car.

    Pros: Good acelleration and handling, roomy, quiet.

    Cons: Window problems (rears wont work) and alternator issues.

    Awesome Car — GM's build quality on passenger cars was way up on this model year, you usually can't buy the first model year of a car without problems. This car had them, but they were far less than any GM make I had ever owned. Two major flaws were the door seals and the placement of the alternator. The car tended to leak in heavy Florida rain and the heat along with that of the engine tended to bake the poor alternators to death in record time.

    Pros: Quick, smooth acceleration, great handling and excellent paint (I can't believe I'm even saying that about a Pontiac!)

    Cons: Door seals were leaky, alternator placement was a mistake.

    Great Value For Money — This car has been a great fit for me. Sportier than other options in my price range, rides well, parts are cheap and easily found, ok on gas (25-28mpg country), decent stock speakers, looks surprisingly sharp when clean. Good internal layout and multidirectional vents. Had to get used to the key going in the dash instead of steering column, but I kind of like it now. Always starts within a second or two, even on the coldest Iowa day (is garaged). You do want the V6 for sure, runs great and I've heard there are fewer issue than the V4s. Only significant non-maintenance repair I can recall is the A/C compressor clutch coil and seal which was over $300 total (not going to dealer again, ugh). The side mirror's plastic cracks and mirror can eventually fall off (had a friend with same issue) but that's only $60 or so even with the electric ones. Has a cigarette lighter fuse-blowing issue I haven't bothered to track down. Underside front spoilers scrape on curbs and such and get torn up or broken easily. Dad has them bolted on pretty tight now. Some drinks (24oz pop, thermos mug, etc) put in the left cupholder will stop the floor shifter from going all the way into Park. Only an issue if the other cupholder is unavailable. Do get some good tires, can make all the difference with road noise and handling. I found Fuzion HRi's look good and work well for me, but the mileage rating is low.

    Pros: Great value for money
    Cheap to repair & maintain
    Easy to find
    Fun to drive

    Cons: Not very unique, tons of them around.
    Back seats aren't that comfortable/roomy

    My Newest Toy — When i got this car, i was kinda surprised to find that its little 3.1 v6 is pretty peppy, and that its not leaking oil like crazy, which is a common problem for those motors. The car is 2dr and green with grey interior.

    Pros: It accelerates quickly and stops on a dime.

    Cons: Its front wheel drive and green
