My red 4 door 99 Pontiac GD had no problems for about 6 years when I first bought it. Then in winter 08, all the head gaskets blew at once and that was a $1700.00 fix..
Then the tensioner and belt fried; that was a $450.00 fix.
Then the water pump went, anti-freeze leaking everywhere, smoke everywhere. That was a few hundred dollar fix.
Now I think there is an electrical problem, because if I start it and let it run, I have to roll the window down a little bit so I can reach my hand in and unlock it, because it locks and unlocks by itself, and the trunk will pop open, and the dash lights will go on and off.. even when I am driving it.
I haven't got that checked out because I am sick of putting money into this car. Seems like a lot of people are having problems with their GD.
I have only replaced the alternator once luckily. But today my service engine soon light came on. I am worried to go get this checked out.
Also the car makes a rattling noise.. everyone says it needs new struts. I have put more money into the car than what I paid for it!!!
I will not get another Pontiac!!
