2007 Pontiac Wave

Summary:

Belongs in the scrap yard, not on the road

Faults:

I've had both front bearings replaced, and my ABS light went off when I first acquired the car. The day I received the car, it made rattling noises that no mechanic could figure out.

Recently it had started to leak oil and coolant, and then the alternator blew on the car and is now out of commission. This was a "thank goodness it finally died" moment in my life. It had its years and was nothing but a pain in the butt!

General Comments:

I would never advise anyone to get this car. I understand it may look like a cute affordable little car, but never place yourself or family in one of these. It is constantly problem after problem, especially in the winter time. Everything freezes up and it does not heat up until you drive 20 minutes down the road. It is very stiff and just uncomfortable. Do yourself a favor and never invest in this car!

2007 Pontiac Wave

Summary:

Awesome little car

Faults:

My front right wheel bearing went at 60,000 ks.

My front left wheel bearing went at 80,000 ks.

General Comments:

I was surprised by all the negative reviews on this car.

It has been a wonderful car for us. Terrific on gas, averaging 46 MPG highway.

Only wheel bearings have been replaced. Been driven hard. No rattles, handles great, very quick, and after having it for six years, it still runs like new.

I really didn't expect to keep it this long. As it was cheap, I have red lined it many times, and it will lay rubber in second gear on manual shift.

It has been virtually indestructible, so again I am very surprised about the negativity.

2007 Pontiac Wave

Summary:

Very poor quality, shouldn't be worth more than 9,000

Faults:

First I had to replace a ball joint at 35,000 km.

Then the rear axle bushings went, which required a new rear axle. That happened at 40,000 km, and it took them 2 weeks to get the part in.

At 42,000 km I had to replace the same ball joint again. There was a strange noise in the front end, and I was told that the sway bar needed to be tightened as the bolts were loose.

At 59,000 km, I had to replace the front bushings.

Now at 65,000 km, I lost all power, and the car shook uncontrollably, and it is sitting at the dealers waiting for a back order part. I was told that one of the sensors is gone, but no one has really given me a straight answer, other than it is under warranty and it will take a week for it to arrive.

General Comments:

I would describe it as good on gas and it's a disposable car. Not something that you would expect to last any number of years. Not very comfortable.

I also bought a 2007 Pontiac Wave.

I've had nothing but problems with this vehicle.

I had to replace ball joints, alternator, battery, air breather, wheel bearings, tie-rod ends, rear axle, bushings and not counting all the small things.

Also on this car you can't keep tires. They wear out no matter how much you pay for them.

I had the rear axle replaced 6 months ago and it's gone again. I'm very upset as you can't just buy the parts, you have to buy the whole axle.

These problems started 3 months after we bought this car. It looked like a good car at the time, but once you got it for a few months all the problems started.

I will never buy another GM car for as long as I live and I will make sure that my family & friends will know!

I've also sent letters to the GM head office with no response. Just know that I'm not happy with the service from GM or the Wave.
