1998 Pontiac Montana Transport from North America
Great for room, but electrical problems are a nightmare
As soon as this van hit 100,000 everything just keeps going wrong. The automatic rear windows do not work. Apparently I have to replace the mult-function switch, which is not a cheap part nor is it easy to find. We had to shut off the switch for the windows completely because there is no manual alternative for the windows. I've always had a lot of problems with the heat not feeling hot, pretty much just a lukewarm. Also the automatic sliding door will sometimes come open on its own while driving. As I have a child in that side seat, it's pretty scary. At least I get a slight warning by the dome lights flickering before it happens. Also when it's cold the automatic door doesn't work at all. And it won't shut all the way manually.
I have 7 kids so I really loved the idea of an 8-seater. I just wish the electric issues wouldn't be so bad on this vehice. As it doesn't give you a manual alternative to automatic, it really makes us stuck when there's an electrical problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
