2006 Pontiac Montana 3.5L V6

Summary:

Best vehicle for the price

Faults:

No issues at all. Just regular maintenance as per GM schedule.

General Comments:

Shows great reliability and solid build.

Very comfortable seats, easy to read dash, easily accessible controls, lots of room for passengers and cargo.

The ride is pleasant, smooth and quiet. Takes corners like a car, not like a big truck. Steering is a bit overassisted but nice.

Brakes are progressive and strong. 225/60R17 tires are a bit expensive but give great ride. Great improvement compared to my last GM vehicle.

Kids like the DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones. 8 speaker audio is simply great, plays rewritable mp3 discs with no issues. Driver Information Center is very useful tool.

General Comments:

I got my van about 2 months ago and I love it! It has the DVD System and a Power Slider. My last van was a 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport and I loved that van. When I purchased it I changed a few things on it to make it look unique and it was like no other on the road and my van really stuck out. I had gotten new rims for it, and new mud flaps and that's all it took. It was red so that's really all it took to make it stand out anymore, but you couldn't mistake my van for anybody elses. I haven't done anything to my new van yet because I like it the way it is, but it's been very good to me so far. I don't use it much. I usually drive it to work and back home and there is the oocasional trips to the grocery store and to family's houses, but that's about it. I bought it with 13,800 miles and I only have 15,600 miles on it now. My last van I had bought brand new off the lot and when I sold it to my mom it only had 76,00 miles on it. Keep in mind this was a 1998 and sold in 2006. I'd say that's very low mileage. I hope I love this van as much as my last one, Everything seems to be in a very convenient spot. I'm happy about where the CD player is located in my SV6, in my last van I had to get down to the floor almost just to put a CD in. I have only owned Pontiac's and I don't plan on changing that anytime soon.
