Well built American sports car, just needs better performance for a 3.4 V6
Alternator 30k, tension pulley at 75k, engine check light at 100k comes on and off, fan motor at 120k, all pretty normal for an American car.
This car has been pretty reliable for 135,000 miles. I drive it daily and take it a lot to 105mph on back roads. It's only a 3.4 V6 auto, it is a shame my previous 94 Honda Civic DX was faster in 0-60 and in top speed - 118mph my Firebird on a good day can only do 110mph.
The Pontiac does good mpg - on the highway 29mpg and the city 20mpg. Just change your transmission oil every 30k and sparkplugs and engine oil at 5k with 5w-30w, and the car will be just a good as any import.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
