1995 Pontiac Firebird t/a 5.7 LT1 from North America
Should have bought a Ford
The first night he got it it over heated, lifter made noise for 10000 miles under powered (compared to my 03 lightning),traction control is a tid bit screwy.
Apparently if you hydroplane at 70mph lifter will correct itself, traction control has a mind of its own, you just can't beat a truck that can can out perform a car in every way, but seating arrangements.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You're an idiot.
And I'm sure no one in the history of mankind has ever dogged a car out and just so happened to hit a spot of oil.
Why did you buy a car with so many miles on it, in the first place. Why are you driving 70 miles per hr in the rain? While a 03 Lighting may be slightly quicker than a used 95 LT1 stock powered car. The mustang GT's or Cobra's (except 03 SC Cobra) don't have a chance against a LT1 in the 1/4 mile! Oh and one more thing- the 98-02 LS1 firebird TA will spank a new Lightning- no contest!
Hey man.. you must be insane if you think you should have gotten a ford over a pontiac... my buddy got an 02 mustang gt and is going to race my other buddy with a 96 Z28...and the mustang is going to SMOKED like a chimney.
Why are we comparing a 03 lightning to a 95 bird anyway? what relevance is that?
No KIDDING... why would you compare the two. From what how it sounds... you don't take very good care of your cars. By the way a lightening is a waste of a truck. I might as well compare my 07 Dodge sport turbo diesel to your lightening. In fact it would probably hang considering it is a diesel. WAY TO GO BUD.
Just bought a 95 formula (LT1) with 127,000 miles on it... It is amazing and in great shape. As long as you take care of the bird it will last a long time. This one looks brand new and according to 3 mechanics is an amazing car all around.
