Overall pretty good car. Steering rack was leaking, had it replaced under extended warranty. Window motor went out, again replaced under warranty. Great Gas Milage. Intermediate steering linkage has been a problem, fixed under recall but now acting up again. Purchased car almost three years old with 23,000 miles and bought it for half of new car sticker. Never owned a Pontiac before, thought I would give it a try.
I bought this car new in Dec 1999 when the new styling was introduced. I love this car. Lots of features, power and luxury that's hard to beat for the price. Very roomy interior, fun to drive. Great styling. Very reliable. Have had a few minor things repaired. I recently purchased a new 2004 GXP and love this car even more. My wife is now driving the 2000 SE.
this car looks very nice, looks a little like a race car. However I have had problems with this car also, struts make noise when you turn the wheel, outside temperture gauge, fog light switch, And even the passenger leather seat heater burnt a hole in the seat!! And drivers heating element burnt out completely, looks nice but if you plan on owning this car for a long time, dont dream of it. This car is only 3 years old, and I cant imagine whats going to go wrong next in another 3 years.
looks, style, stereo, tires. HOT SEATS.
this car makes america look like our workers are slackers. who ever put these cars together was obviously just concerned with output # than reliability.
Love this car! Hate green but bought
this green car because it was worth
the money. Husband wanted a Bonne so
I relented. Now I wouldn't trade it
off and hope to put 200,000 miles on
it. I now have 120,000 miles on it
and have had very little wrong with
the car. The cup holders are somewhat
small and I do hate the battery behind
the back seat. Under warranty, the
alternator had to be replaced but
really has worked great since.
Handling is a major plus! And the car
has plenty of power with the 3.8
engine-pretty good fuel mileage (25-
Best car I've ever owned overall;
rides nice and solid, 30-32 mpg
highway. Other than a brake rotor
problem during warranty period, I've
had nothing done to it except
scheduled maintenance in 50,000+ miles
of driving. Only problem is an
annoying shimmy at 70mph which started
in front and went to the rear after I
rotated the tires, so it's either a
bum tire or a wheel hole off center.
This is a lot of car for the money. My
only beef is with those annoying red
dash lights that can only have been
designed by someone under 40; too hard
on older eyes!
Ride quality, solid feel, steering
wheel radio controls
Ditch the red dash lights. Attention
to detail is what makes imports a
little better. GM markets this car to
the 35-55 crowd but failed to
understand the bi-focal crowd doesn't
see red as well as other colors. Also
cup holders too small; again,
attention to detail!!!
