Review of the 1999 Pontiac Firebird

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V6, spectacular V8, true muscle car performance package at bargain-basement price.

  • Cons

    Boy-racer-in-gold-chains image, cheesy interior plastic, sky-high insurance rates for V8 models.

  • What's New for 1999

    Electronic traction control is now available on all models, with a bigger gas tank and an oil life monitor standard. A Torsen limited-slip rear axle comes with V8 models (and V6 cars with the performance package), while an eight-speaker Delco/Monsoon sound system goes into the convertible. A power-steering cooler is now available for V8s, and a Hurst shifter is optional on the six-speed manual transmission. The Ram Air WS6 package now sports dual outlet exhaust, and two new exterior colors debut, Pewter and Medium Blue Metallic. The 30th anniversary Trans Am sports an extroverted paint scheme that features two blue stripes running over the hood and deck lid.

True american muscle!!!

Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Convertible

Awsome car!!! I owned 4 of these cars, 2 of which i still have. I will own nothing but a Trans Am my entire life. I have both the 30th and 35th anniversarys. the 30th is a Daytona 500 Official Pace car and both have givin me absolutely no problems. Have had to replace back brake lights and front turn signals (maybe 5.00 woth of replacements) The handling is awsome and the speed is amazing. I am a 19 year old female and cars are my life, and this one is the only one that has really cought my eyes. Its a real head turner and a guy getter. Pontiac did an awsome job making this monster. It looks and sounds so mean. A great car for a responsible driver. Way too much power for a new driver car...
