Pros: The dvd player
Cons: the air conditoner blowing the back of my head
Advice: shop around for the best priceThis van drove very well. It was so comfortable and easy to drive. It fit me like a glove.
Pros: radio controls on the steering wheel.
Cons: cup holders between the middle seats.
Advice: quad seating is the easiest for back row seating access. Manually adjustable seats are easier to adjust then the 6 way seating.This is our second Pontiac Montana, having traded in 2000 for our current 2002. This was and in our opinion still is the only minivan on the market that feels like you are driving a car instead of a van. It doesn't look like a traditional 'kid' vehicle, has a sporty exterior, but a family friendly interior.
Pros: VERSATILITY ... VERY CONVIENIENT... ELECTRIC SIDE DOOR
Cons: Hard to say ... maybe the armrest could have more cushion.
Advice: I would highly recommend the MONTANAI'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.
