Best Pontiac I have ever driven
The car wasn't running when I purchased it (had been sitting for 2+ years). Replaced the fuel pump, and have driven it with no running problems.
Has a lot of electrical items that might work today, but then won't work for a week, then come back on. Was told someone did a lot of work and didn't know what they were doing.
Paint (clear coat) is peeling, power steering squeals occasionally, and rattles for a minute when started in the cold. Was told the serpentine belt ran rough until the edges frayed, but I haven't had any problem. The water tank for wiper was removed, and the A/C was barely hanging on.
Looks great, inside and out.
The stereo and wheels have been changed.
HUD works great.
It has a sunroof, power windows, cruise, tinted windows, and electric seats that do everything. It has a lot of power, and it's hard to keep from getting a wheel on take off.
Oil was clean. Didn't change the filter until this month (Feb).
Have been told the 5-speed is rare.
I love this car. I plan to redo everything that has a problem, and put classic plates on her and run her until the wheels fall off, or I get too old to enjoy her, or I finally get my dream car, a GTO.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
