1993 Pontiac Trans Sport SE 3.8 V6 from North America


Is really awesome car and the engine is really good


Fuel filler cap doesn't open from inside the car - have to manually do it from outside.

Driver side window does roll down, but cannot be rolled up and has to be done manually.

Rear door doesn't open from inside - can be fixed easily, but am too lazy to do it!

General Comments:

For an engine that old - is very reliable there is no sign of any leaks and does well on long drives. I recently completed a 14 hr (non-stop) drive to Pennsylvania, without any incident.

The drivers seat is quite uncomfortable, but the passenger ride quality is awesome and is a joy to go on long drives.

The engine of late has been a bit sluggish and probably the transmission needs to be checked.

1993 Pontiac Trans Sport 3.4 from North America


Great car; I would buy another


The ABS light was on from the start. This was fixed at the dealer under warranty.

The front window switches did not work, this was fixed at the dealer also.

The gas gage went bad at about 140,000 miles. This was a whopping $400 to fix, I let that one go.

The cruse control went out recently (at 172000 miles). I haven't fixed that either.

The back gate lock on the right side broke, it was almost $100 for that (just the part, I replaced it myself).

The handle on the lift gate lock broke of just now.

The lift gate lifters were well wore out too, and I replaced those as well.

The alternator went at 90,000 miles.

General Comments:

A very reliable car. The bucket seats are a bit of a pain on long trips, but it was because of the seats that I bought it, as they were removable and much better on my back than the old Plymouth bench seat. As you can see from the length of miles on the car, most of the original components have lasted very well indeed. The engine has been a very good one, nicely powered, and few problems.

1993 Pontiac Trans Sport GT 3.8 liter benzine from Switzerland


The worst vehicle I have ever had the extreme misfortune to own bar none!


The automatic transmission had to be replaced 1200 kilometers after purchase.

The new automatic transmission only lasted 5000 kilometers.

The air-conditioning never worked properly even after numerous services.

The handling was always very poor.

The engine used a great deal of oil and fuel.

For such a huge engine this vehicle had no performance at all.

Leather seats are terribly uncomfortable and did not wear well.

General Comments:

This is the worst vehicle I have ever owned.

I was warned about American vehicles, I should have listened!

Extremely poor quality workmanship compared to the superior French Citroen.

Extremely poor service.

Extremely expensive parts.

Terrible handling even for a minivan!

Never again will I purchase an American vehicle!

I would have to agree. My vehicle has had the transmission replaced, tie rods (twice),Master Cylinder, brakes are atrocious (multiple replacements of many parts) and all this while under the 7-70 warranty. The only thing that hasn't been replaced at least once is the exhaust.Now it has such a history I don't think I could sell it if I had to.

Looking for a new car now (2003) and am getting serious about Chrylser vehicles-- I'd never own another Pontiac.

Poor workmanship- poor engineering--

The seats are nice, though.

Nothing wants to break down


When the weather is cold, transmission engages only after a minute or two of idling.

Rear hatch does not lock.

General Comments:

Quite comfortable seating front.

Pleasant "floating" ride.

Baa-ad acceleration for a minivan.

Quite unusual looks.

Great interior lights and a compass...

1993 Pontiac Trans Sport 3.8 from Germany




Air conditioning lines at 100000.

Rear suspension struts at 118000.

General Comments:

Reliable, but the prices for Pontiac parts are extremely high in Germany i.e. I paid for a seal DM8.50 at an American price of $0.89.
