1995 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this car in 2005 and have had very few problems with it. The car handles amazingly well. The engine runs strong and I haven't experienced any major issues with it yet. The 275 hp LT1 is a little down on horsepower, but that can be solved with just a few small and fairly cheap modifications. In my personal experience with the car, I find the more I do to it, the more it rewards me with better gas mileage, more horsepower, and more fun when I plant the gas pedal. The seats are comfortable even on fairly long drives. If your car has t-tops then I highly recommend getting T-top shades on hot summer days. This car is for sure one that I would like to keep around for the long run.


Best Features

I would have to say that the LT1 engine would be my favorite part of this car. This engine has a lot of potential and should not be counted out in whatever setting you use it for... be it track, strip, or street use. The exteriors low and sinister stance doesn't hurt the car either.


Worst Features

If the Trans Am was still being made today I would recommend they add a little more storage to the interior, such as a place to put a cell phone or other small items. I would also suggest adding more cup holders, and putting them in different places, besides where you rest your elbow.

Review

This car is wonderful. It has everything you could want in a sports car. A big engine, great exterior looks, an old school exhaust tone. I have had this car since 2005 and haven't had any problems with it besides a speed sensor going out, and a minor oil leak due to the fact that the previous owner didn't tighten the oil pan enough. With improvements has only come better fuel mileage and more horsepower. The car handles extremely well even at high speeds giving a feeling of complete control to the driver. The 5.7 liter LT1 while underpowered if stock, has a lot of potential. It is a hard car to find parts for though, and because the engine area is so crowded it can be a hard car to work on


Best Features

LT1 engine, body style, seating, handling, and all around dependability.


Worst Features

More places to put things such as cell phones and or other small items besides in the center console. Relocated cup holders... not to mention... more cup holders.

Review

This is absolutely the funnest car i have ever owned. i just bought the car for $2700. It has 122,000 miles and is very good condition for the price i paid. Took it to the drag strip and run 15.3 1/4 mile and the car is BONE STOCK. absolutely nothing done to it but a tune up.(just plugs and wires, and oil change). I absolutely love this car. Very very good power to price ratio. I did have to put a right, rear wheel bearing in but i think that is just because the last owner run it a little hard.


Best Features

love the body styling and the t tops are just wonderful. very strong running and handles very well.


Worst Features

interior design, window motors, and ride quality

Review

I bought my Trans AM in October and the only thing that had to be replaced so far is a transmission bracket. i love driving my car and would recommend it to anyone who asks! The car had 85,000 miles on it when I bought it and gets around 18 mpg if you keep your foot out of it (which is much easier said than done). One thing that do not like is the lack of aftermarket visual parts for the car.


Best Features

The strong 5.7 V8, comfortable seating, and the T-tops look great!


Worst Features

Better looking rims, more access to the engine compartment, and stronger sound system.

Review

This car is amazing, my Dad bought it in 1995 and after 12years in the house its been mine for 3 years. Its seating position is low and tiring for long rides but a car like this is meant for racing and the seats with regards to that are perfect. I got 305hp stock motor. It isnt driven in winter. It just won't go straight. Too powerful with low end torque. It still has 47670km on it. It's still brand new, black on black. It's a beautiful summer car. I wouldn't sell in another 50years. Nothing is wrong with it. So far the only thing we changed since we had it are the tires and oils. Other than that the original smell is in it. Beautiful car to have.


Best Features

The body style, the horsepower. The performance button to control the gearshifts. Sound system, sports seats, and the popping sound from the exhaust when the engine is reved. The acceleration that chrips the wheels in 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd. The power.


Worst Features

Cupholder postion stinks. The back seat isn't really useful.
