The major problems with the car happened in the first few years that we had it.
I can't even remember how many times we had to replace the motor mounts and alternator belt.
The car would stall in the rain (Hasn't happened for years now).
A/C went about a year after we bought the car. Never bothered trying to get it back though.
The engine was rebuilt when the car was 13 years old.
A few years ago, my daughter has put this car through hell- TWICE. When she was first learning, she lost control, and somehow managed to rip the ENTIRE wheel of the back left tire off. When this happened, the back end of the car smashed on the ground, and has caused heavy damage to its undercarriage. Then a year after that, she ran the car into a ditch about 4 ft. high in snow when she encountered black ice for the first time. Luckily, only a few fuses had to be replaced.
The car is 21 years old. Naturally rust and the accidents my daughter has made its toll on the car, and it's now in desperate need of bodywork.
This is THE best car I have ever owned. We also own a 1998 Honda Accord, and our Pontiac literally makes it look bad. Mechanically, this car has gotten better with age. All of the problems we had with the car in the first couple of years that we had it have vanished! I think I've only had to put about $250 into it in the past three years, which I can't say for the Honda. It has given my family nothing, but great and reliable service for the 16 years that we have had it now. No matter what it's been through, it always starts right up again (I think my daughter has proven this). If I was given a million dollars, I would put as much money as I could into bodywork for this car, which is probably the only way I can thank this car. GM should be proud!!!
