2004 Pontiac Montana Overview

Dropping its Value trim, the 2004 Montana comes in base and Highline MontanaVision in regular or extended wheelbase versions. Though only available on the extended models last year, Versatrak all-wheel drive is an option across the Montana lineup in 2004. XM radio and MP3 players are other new options. The 3.4-liter, 185-hp V6 engine has not changed over the years, and is still surprisingly energetic with a smooth 4-speed auto tran.
The 2004 Montana is a versatile minivan that offers special sports packages to help dress it up in SUV clothing and please driving enthusiasts who have to double as kid-toting parents. The ChromeSport package replaces the Thunder Sport, but offers the same sports suspension, rear spoiler, and 16-inch chrome wheels. ABS brakes are standard on all but the shorter base model, which also doesn't come standard with captain's chairs. Otherwise, you can get quite a lot on the base, including remote entry, cruise control, rear wiper, power features, and a standard roof luggage rack. Dual sliding doors are standard, and there is a power option on the extended trims. Other options include traction control, heated leather seats, parking assist, and an air compressor. MontanaVision is Pontiac's DVD system that comes with headphones and a remote control and keeps the kids occupied while you enjoy the SUV-like handling behind the wheel.
Lots of room, seat configurability (for 6-8 people), good gas mileage, and special options make the 2004 Montana practical and pleasantly comfortable for long family trips. The ride is quiet and the handling can even be somewhat sporty, say owners. The dual sliding doors are a godsend. Aside from ongoing major mechanical problems, the 2004 Montana needs more horsepower, according to drivers. The seats are difficult to remove and there seem to be less storage compartments than in previous years. The interior plastic looks and acts cheap and there are problems with rattling and squeaking.
