2003 Pontiac Montana EXT 3.4 from North America
Nice ride, but poor reliability
Major Problems :
The lower intake gasket needed replacing at 65,000 miles.
The bushing and control arm rods were worn at 70,000 miles.
The rear wiper motor needed replacement at 62,000 miles.
The plastic wheel nut covers keep falling off while driving.
The interior rattles.
The cup holder in the front broke.
Changing the air filter on this van is a real pain, you have to remove so many parts to get at it.
Things I like about this van:
Easy to drive.
Lots of space.
Looks and drives good.
Very good for a big family.
Lots of nice features.
Things I don't like about this van:
Poor reliability for such low mileage, I didn't expect to be repairing those things until the van was at about 100,000 to 120,000 miles.
It's too bad GM cannot make a vehicle last more than 5 years or 60,000 miles. I don't think it's too hard to engineer a car to last longer. Other manufacturers are doing it, why not GM.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
