Bought this "used" car in March 2005. Very sharp and sporty looking car and very fun to drive. Plenty of power. Fully loaded, has all the bells and whistles that the SSEI has, but without the supecharged engine. But since we've bought this car, it had to go back to the garage 4 times now for minor, but annoying mechanical issues that shouldn't be happening on a 5 year old car. Now it has a water leak on the rear passenger floor. The wife really loves this car, but I wish we had waited and bought a Monte Carlo SS.
Fun to drive and handles excellent. Very sharp looking car, get lots of looks as well as compliments from people.
Improve the quality/reliablity of the mechanical parts, such as passenger heater, power window motor, wheel rims, etc, etc. Poor design of cup holders.
Engine and transmission very good, very good handing. Interior materials very cheap, the seats are horrible and very unconfortable. The body paint need to be improved the quality. The rust is coming out already. I changed two of the four electric motor windows already.
Very good handling and the engina and transmission are top of the line.
Use better parts for the front end suspension and interior, like tie rods. Etc
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.
