Good First Car — Over all this was my first vehicle. It is very reliable. I never have to worry about this car breaking down on me. It gets great city and highway mileage. Low maintenance car, rare when it is in shop besides oil change and tire rotation. Definitely recommend for someones first car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage. Low maintenance car. Great sport looking car.

Cons: No room in back seats. Not very comfortable. Interior functions seems to break easily.

Great First Car — I love this car. It's my baby. This is my first car and I bought it pre-owned it when I was an inexperienced driver, so as a result, it's a little rough around the edges. Maintenence is fairly cheap, I've avoided my fair share of accidents due to driving skills I've acquired, but also the abilities of the vehicle. I definitely feel like I'm always in control, even in rain and snow unless the roads are completely covered. It's been from NJ to FL and back, and I had no issues at any point in the 18 hr drive. It's comfortable enough for 2 people, and it could take on a third if it had to, but any more than that, and somebody would start feeling cramped. Overall, a good car. No major complaints, nothing to be incredibly excited about. It gets me where I need to go, and that's what cars are for

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty, decent fuel economy, comfortable, reasonably priced maintenence

Cons: Pontiac is antiquated

Good Economical Student Or Work Car — Like that this car has plenty of power to get up to speed when you need too. Good car for finding small parking places to squeeze into. Good car for a couple, small family or as a work car. Lot of truck space to put any from groceries to suitcases for a trip to favorite destination. Cons: Just two doors can be a problem at times.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car for a couple or small family

Cons: Limited to two doors

A Compact Sports Car — This Pontiac has been consistently reliable for my family. She has driven us long distances, and has never quit on us. The only problem is the lack of leg room for tall men, which our family often hosts. It'll be a shame when we trade her in for a bigger car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Our little Pontiac has gotten has been reliable in getting us to our destination. From VA to NY to SC, she's been a trooper that we can depend on.

Cons: There have been some rattling noises coming from it, but the mechanics have checked it out, and says there's nothing wrong. Besides that, the car is really small.

Not To Bad — it was a great deal and it is a fairly nice car but it isnt as refined or fun to drive as a civic. It would have been nice if gm would have given it a 5 speed auto that got the most out of its horsepower. It is definitely better than some of the other cars gm has built in the past

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap, sometimes fun to drive

Cons: if you have the money look at getting a civic with a better driving experience and better gas mileage

Good Fun — Awesome car. Has enough zaz to go around. The gas mileage could be somewhat better but depending on your driving. Could use somewhat of a face lift to make it distinctful from all the other cars. No need for repairs yet, all in all very fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing really
