'97 Pontiac Trans Am. Love my baby! I bought this car used (one owner), and it's now 11 years old, but you'd never know it. It's been very dependable and hasn't given me any major problems, except that I go through rotors fairly fast even though I'm not hard on braking. Obviously not recommended for everyone, but it's awesome to drive. It's my daily driver, and I put about 8,000 miles on it annually. Not too good in the snow, but if you've driven RWD before, you'll know what to expect - Traction control helps. If you have a "beater" and can keep a car like this in the garage in the winter, that's the best option. It's a shame GM doesn't make these anymore; they are sorely missed.
Beautiful body, nice Monsoon stereo system, bucket seats, strong power and delicious V8 rumble.
None really. In really cold weather, the heater has trouble keeping up with temperatures, but this isn't really a winter car anyway.
This car is more fun to drive thing my mom's 2006 mustang. I have be out standing happy with my car. and it has never left me anywere. even after the waterpump went out. i was able to limp her 2 miles home. the only bad thing is she lecks a little oil. but i dont have to add oil between oil changes.
A 60-something sport touring motorcyclist - I bought my 1997 WS6 in 2000 replacing a ten year old Mustang GT. The WS6 had run out of warranty, so I bought an extension from the GM dealer for just over $1,000. It paid off. In the next four years I had about $3K of work done for free, replacing the Monsoon audio system and rear woofers, and the power window motors.This car is a blast to drive. It corners as if it were on rails, the power lumbar support is excellent, the throttle response is incredible - the exhaust note awesome. The only thing I can liken it to is an XKE V-12 that I once owned.My wife loves the lines - says it reminds her of a Ferrari.It's been a blast!
I've owned a black '97 Trans Am WS6 for the
past year and my experience with it has been
great. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a
powerful and stylish sportscar that is all about
having fun driving. The car is solidly built,
hugs the road, handles like a dream, and can
take off like a bat out of somewhere very hot.
I'll NEVER sell this car, and it's the one thing
that makes the trip itself half the fun of going
Awesome power, beautiful styling (I personally
find it more visually appealing than 95% of
exotics), flawless handling. Accessible and
intuitive control placement.
Better quality materials for the rear end,
retractable headlight motors, and interior trim.
Stronger reinforcements on the chassis.
