2000 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Hatchback


Review

I've owned this car since it was new. Originally I had trouble with the power antenna and one of the headlights not popping up. Four trips to the dealer and the headlight finally was fixed - loose connection to motor. One other problem I had was the gas line regulator valve leaking gas into the engine when it was hot causing hard starting. I've not had any problems since these. I've been real happy with the gas mileage. I get 18 mpg in town and 30 mpg on the highway. That's with a heavy foot. Would have bought the TA except insurance would have been 4 times higher even though I haven't had a ticket for 15 years. Also, cost difference was $16 grand - buy another car for that.


Favorite Features

The Monsoon Stereo system is awsome. Can't beat the T-tops on a nice day. Love the red night-lighting on the dash at night. The body stying is great and acceleration is as good as most other sports cars in town. Faster than 40 mph just gets you a ticket anyway.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger trunk, Stock Goodyear Eagle GAs are junk, wore out at 30,000 miles - probably why they quit making them. Rear spoiler holds water making opening the trunk during rain a chore. Need better molding of back panels next to back seat - they keep popping loose.

Review

We all know you can buy a Honda Civic and put $10,000 into it to make it a nice car. Why not just buy one of these Firebirds and have the better looking car, and the performance. Do not be fooled by editor's bias towards import cars. This lovely car does twice as much as they can, has more features and looks better. Don't be the butt of everyone's "deck out your cheap Honda" jokes, and be the envy, get the Firebird!


Favorite Features

The Engine! It is very powerful. The interior is sleek and new, no more 'plain Jane.'


Suggested Improvements

None, this car is perfect.

Review

Wow! Absolutely mindblowing acceleration and handling! Used to own a Mustang GT and there is no comparison. Aftermarket add-ons to increase horsepower are extremely inexpensive so you can do all kind of things to the motor real cheap! Love it!!


Favorite Features

Performance and handling, 6 speed Hurst is a blast to operate.


Suggested Improvements

Obvious gas guzzler but it comes with the territory. T-tops and front windshield make alot of noise in the cold weather but when it's warm just take the T-tops off and you're all set!!!

Review

I got my car as a certifiedused vehicle from GeneralMotors. I love the whole Firehawk appearence package. Car is even better in stick. This car does 14's with ease, if you put some slicks, even low thirteens.


Favorite Features

Whole car


Suggested Improvements

SLP did a not so good paint job on the hood and spoiler of the car. Other than that, everything is great.
