1994 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback


Review

Well, I was starting college and had saved up enough for a used car. Unlike all my friends, I was particular to the muscle car movement, so I looked for something with a V8 and RWD. I found my car which had some defects but was in pretty great shape for the price and age. I love driving it and have never been happier with a car. I love driving it and listen to the exhaust, "rumble, rumble, rumble, rumble, ROAAAAAR!"


Best Features

6 Speed Manual, 350 LT1 V8, 3.42 gears, t-tops, Mods (long tube headers, custom y-pipe, Magnaflow exhaust, stage 2 clutch), powerful 8 speaker stereo system, etc.


Worst Features

Cup holder behind shifter, problems with window motors and A/C compressor.

1994 Pontiac Firebird Formula 2dr Hatchback


Review

The car is overall a nice car for its time. However owning one today for me is very costly. I have more money in repairs than what the car is worth or what I paid for it and the car has under 60,000 miles. Maybe some last longer, but mine has been giving me grief ever since I owned it. Right now it is messed up and nobody has been able to figure out why. I'm tired of repairing things, and think I'm going to just sell it for a loss. I advise you to look into the reliability of these cars before purchasing. Some can last a long time, but mine has been horrible. I got to know a few mechanics well unfortunately.


Best Features

Decent looking, fun to drive


Worst Features

more reliable, seems to combine a lot of bad ideas to me in the design

1994 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 25th Anniversary 2dr Coupe


Review

Great car. Always fun to drive. Bought new for my wife - she loved it (but said it took a while to get used to all the looks from others). Very dependable. Surprises others that it does so well in snow. Almost 15 years old and it still attracts "The Look" from people. My son might die if we ever sold it.


Best Features

Performance and road handling, even in bad weather.


Worst Features

Lower insurance cost.

1994 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Hatchback


Review

This is by far the best and most fun car Ive driven. I've added K&N air intake and flowmaster exhaust, tinted the windows extremely dark, and added chrome rims and performance tires. Just added a top notch sound system, replaced everything, and I couldn't be happier with the car. It may have a TMV of $2300, or whatever, but there is no way I'd sell it for triple that. I would drive this car every mile for the rest of my life if I could, unfortunately there is no car that lasts that long.


Best Features

The look is what originally drew me in to the Firebird, the performance is what pulled money outta my pocket. I love the feel of driving it, the wheel, the seat, everything.


Worst Features

The only thing I would change is the ability to have a power sunroof installed. I would've had one about ten years ago if it was possible.

Review

These cars (Fbodys) are the best bang for your buck on the market, period! 94-97 Camaro, Firebird, Trans Am are great buys being anywhere from $3000- $7000 based on condition and mileage. 285hp 315ft lbs of torque and gets 25+ MPG on the highway. What more could you ask for?!?! Easily modified to reach 350+ HP reliably. Very few mechanical issues. As with any used car look for service and maintenence records to see how it was cared for.


Best Features

Power. There is no replacement for displacement. It's an old saying and has never been more true.


Worst Features

Bring it back, and dont ruin it doing so. The concept Camaro is a tragedy.
