$50.00 pr./Front $100.00 pr/Rear.

$500.00 Transmission was used from a salvage yard, it cost $250.00, the seals, oils, and misc. pieces cost another $250.00.
Door handles are replaced every 2 years, due to stress failure.
These are the prices of doing all the work on this vehicle my self. I have not paid a mechanic to do this work, you can expect to double the prices to have a mechanic do the work for you.
I love this car, I have and will buy more Pontiac vehicles.
This is a very mechanic friendly car, most mechanical tasks are a breeze, and I am not a pro mechanic.
Great gas mileage.
Very comfortable seats, very adjustable.
Prices of parts are very reasonable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
