Summary:

The van looks good, but it doesn't give the buyer much peace of mind

Faults:

The van had to have an oil leak repaired which cost over $500.00.

Less than three months later, there was a problem with the intake valve.

The A/C sometimes would not work.

General Comments:

The Trans Sport was an impressive looking vehicle, it's extremely unreliable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Faults:

This car has been serviced many times. Most problems were in the first 2 years after I bought the van. It had an electronic defect, the motor on both windows has had to be worked on, the back glass leaks, and it had a leak in the windshield wiper fluid tank. It also had to have a new gas tank installed.

General Comments:

I probably would not purchase another transport but would consider another model from this manufacturer.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a question that pertains to the 1995 Pontiac Transport. Can you explain why the check engine light comes on and then if you turn the engine off, the check engine light goes off, but if you are driving around it comes back on again? We have had our Transport serviced at least 4 times within the past 5 months and the dignostics testing comes back saying to check something else, but yet the other test comes back okay. Can you please give me some answers? We want to go on vacation, but yet we don't want to be stranded either! Thank you.

I have a 95 Pontiac Transport with the 3800.

I am experiencing problems that when the gas tank gets low, but still with more than 3 gallons in tank, the engine gets starved for gas due to a vacuum in the fuel tank. Twice, the car has stopped running and when I got out and opened/closed the gas cap to relieve the vacuum it ran fine.

Could it be a faulty gas cap or an indication of a larger problem?

I own a used 95 Pontiac Transport, and this past fall I replaced the transmission. Ever since the transmission replacement, the vehicle has always smelled warm. Now I can't get the heater to work and its -20 below. Is there a good chance that the wiring harness has melted or should I be checking the blower motor?

Thanks.

My wife's 1995 pontiac sub frame had to be dropped. This was done using a lift to raise the whole vehicle and then removing the sub frame. Big!!! Job!!! done by a experienced mechanic.
