2000 Pontiac Firebird 2 Door Coupe V6, 250HP from North America
Power, performance, and darn good lookin'!
Quirks include door rattling and minor window and hatch leakage in the car wash. All under GM warranty.
Put your Firebird in the garage in the winter. Car handles like a greased up toboggan with a drunk seven year old at the controls.
A souped up V6 gives the coupe power and punch during acceleration.
Solid ride at low and high speeds.
Looks darn good. Sleek, curvy design. Blue-green chameleon paint adds extra visual appeal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm sorry to try to fix what you said, but when I got my Firebird all it had was a 200 HP 3800 in it as do all stock Firebird V-6s. Was there some package the dealer offered or did you supe it up yourself, and if you did it yourself, please tell me what you did.

Thank you for our info. and I am just curious about your comment about the winter garage thing. Since I'm living in Minnesota and street parking is my only choice, do you think it's gonna hurt the car?

To be honest, as long as you do a oil spray every early fall and keep doing that, then the body should withstand the winter. Speaking of driving in the winter, well with the RW-Drive it's a bit of a dance at times a specially if you have that beasty 5.7L V8. Good winter tires help a lot, but you just need to develop a good feel with your gas and clutch pedal.
Good Luck Buddy

3800 = 200hp, not more, maybe even less. Stock. They run good for daily driving, but don't race it because you will get smoked even by a Hyundai.
