2001 Pontiac Firebird Base Coupe W68 3.8 from North America
Great looking car that turns heads everywhere I go
Transmission was throwing a code when I bought it. Turned out to be the torque converter. Changed it for $600 and has been fine ever since.
Had to replace ignition coils once at 100k miles.
Window motor needed to be replaced.
I love the looks of this car. I am constantly getting comments how good it looks.
I really like the roominess of the interior in the front seats. I am 6'4" and my Firebird is the only car I can stretch my legs comfortably in.
Gas mileage wise, I get 22mpg around town and I have gotten 32mpg on the highway doing 65-70 the whole way, with 100k miles on the engine.
It's pretty quick for a V6, however the V6 Firebird with the performance package is quicker due to the gearing, which I do not have.
The W68 appearance package looks amazing!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
