Review of the 2000 Pontiac Firebird

  • Although were not thrilled by the cheap plastic interior and poor visibility, the Firebird never fails to serve up plenty of cheap tire-smokin' fun.

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2000

    New wheels, exterior and interior colors and engine revisions for improved emissions and better throttle response on manual transmission-equipped cars top the list of Firebird changes for 2000.

I love my trans am!

Vehicle: 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Convertible

I got this car before I got pregnant with twins, so it doesn't see as much use now as it used to. The WS6 coupled with the convertible was actually my dream car and I was amazed and thrilled when I got it! It has never disappointed me at all. At 8 years old with close to 90k, I've only replaced a wheel bearing and a window motor outside of regular maintenence. A pretty good record if you ask me. The gas mileage is unbelievable for this 5.7 too! I use Bosch platinum plugs and get over 30mpg when I keep the air filter clean. I have absolutely no complaints with this car after 4 and a half years of ownership, and I still drive it multiple times weekly even since the twins! Can't go wrong!
