Review of the 2001 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 a bargain price.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2001

    For 2001, V8-equipped Formula and Trans Am receive five more horsepower and five more pound-feet of torque, new exterior and interior colors join the palette and the Ram Air Formula is dropped from the lineup.

Fun car not reliable daily

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

This car is fun to drive with like a sports car but with the v6 you don't have to worry about gas. The only problem with this car that I have had so far are strange electrical issues (ex. The headlights flip up and down when using the power locks with the remote?) also has electrical problems after being stored. Still a great convertible for Florida weather

I have recently purchased a 2001 convertible. I know it is old and has a few miles on it. I bought it with the prospect of fixing it up into a mean machine. The car is one of a kind.




I love this car

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Convertible (3.8L 6cyl 5M)

I didn't go with the V-8, still it is a blast to drive. The top comes down fast and smoothly for cruising in the sun. Very recommended for people who want a fun car to drive.

Fun car to drive. Always get a lot of compliments on style and color. I have not a problem with this car and it gets great gas milage. Averages 22mpg in everyday use and 27 mpg on trips. Very little wind in the cabin with the top down and can drive in 80 degrees plus with the air on and down to 50 with heat. Best car I have ever owned

Remember, the new GTO is more $$ then a GTP and replaces the Firebird/Transam as another 5.7L V8 rear drive car and Pontiac still makes coupes of the Sunfire & Grand Am......
