    2003 Pontiac Vibe - Base FWD

    Pros: The driver controls and instrumentation

    Cons: I honestly haven't found a feature I dislike...sorry!

    Advice: Drive

    It is fun to drive my new 2003 Vibe. Once you're behind the wheel, the experience begins to unfold as you close the door(quality sound) and gaze at the interior design and spaciousness. The Vibe's fit and finish is very good. The driving experience is comfortable, quiet, responsive and secure. For $19,000 this is a well equipped vehicle that is very versatile in it's ability to carry passengers and parcels. A road test is a must to experience this new design, the new age 'station-wagon' of efficiency.

    2002 Pontiac Grand Am - GT Coupe

    Pros: The sound system

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: It drives as well as it looks.

    The performance of this car was great. It had a lot of power along with control and comfort. The way this car looks really contributed to pursuading me to purchase the Grand Am GT.

    2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - SE Sedan

    Pros: Steering and handling

    Cons: Problem with the motor

    Advice: Buy the GT model with the 3800 motor

    Purchased 2001 Se with 3100 motor, and 30,000 km. Had to take the motor in for repair. Sloppy pistons. Factory defect. Apparently found out from contacting GM that this defect is very common with the 3100 motor. This defected motor has been sold with the SE model for over 3 years, so why hasn't GM corrected the problem?????

    2002 Pontiac Sunfire - Sedan

    Pros: Cruise Control. Excellent on gas

    Cons: I love everything about my Sunfire

    Advice: You will definitely love it.

    I love my Sunfire-Alpine Green. This car definitely has some get up and go. Put it on cruise control and let it fly. I'm glad I got the Sunfire instead of the Cavalier. The spoiler on the Sunfire is standard-plus it seems to be larger than the Cavalier. Perfect 1st new car. Great car for the money.

    2003 Pontiac Vibe - Base FWD

    Pros: INSTRAMENTATION

    Cons: NOTHING

    Advice: BUY IT IT IS HOT

    THE VIBE WAS VERY ROOMY, TIGHT HANDLING, AND COMFORTABLE. I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY ATTRACTIVE LOOKING. THE HOTTEST THING HOWEVER I THOUGHT WAS THE INSTRUMENTATION THE DEEP RED BACKLIT GAUGES WHERE JUST GORGEOUS. THE ROOMINESS IN THE REAR WAS JUST AMAZING. I THOUGHT THIS VEHICLE OVERALL IS A HUGE HIT!

    2002 Pontiac Grand Am - SE1 Sedan

    Pros: It rides comfortably when it is not on a tow truck.

    Cons: It is mechanically unreliable with seemingly poor quality parts.

    Advice: Don't purchase this car. It is much more trouble than it is worth.

    This vehicle rides quite well, when it runs. We have two Grand Ams in the family and both have left us stranded on multiple occassions. It seems to be plagued with battery and electrical problems and in general uses poor quality parts (we have had to replace a gasket within the engine, a belt, the alternator, front brakes, the body control chip module, the cassette deck and the coolant cap. I have already had multiple repairs totalling several thousand dollars worth of work on my 2 1/2 year old Grand Am and had to have it towed back to the dealership again today. It was there only 28 days ago for the same problem. If you want reliability, this car is definately not the one to buy. I am a proud American and I support my country as I can, but I am also a hard working consumer who expects some quality and dependability in exchage for my hard earned dollars. Pontiac failed drastically. You and your family deserve better. Don't get stranded. Don't buy a pontiac.

    2002 Pontiac Montana - w/1SA FWD Extended Passenger

    Pros: VERSATILITY ... VERY CONVIENIENT... ELECTRIC SIDE DOOR

    Cons: Hard to say ... maybe the armrest could have more cushion.

    Advice: I would highly recommend the MONTANA

    I've owned a Pontiac Montana for 3 years .. it had to be repaired one time for a minor repair .. a small foreign made motor on the rear window had to be replaced ... it was repaired when I took it in for a routine oil change in less than a hour.... that's it. It's as reliable and comfortable as any Minivan on the road .. I would highly recommend the MONTANA ... I owned a Voyager for 9 years ... which was a good van also .. but the Montana is a step above ... it does most things better .. it rides quieter ... smoother and the Electric side door is fantastic ... it saves a lot of grief when loading and unloading .. especially in bad weather ... this van gets a 'work out' and takes it all in stride .. the gas miliage is better also .. the 185HP engine has 'guts' and is well suited. 4x8 sheets of material fit easily... you can close all doors and not even have to take seats out ... just fold the back seats down and the material rests on top of the back of the seat.... I just bought a Rendezvous that has the same drivetrain as our MONTANA ... I think it is the best going ... I've heard nothing but good about it... from mechanics ..and owners.
