Review of the 2002 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. May it rest in peace.

  • 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 2002

    Entering its last year of production, the Firebird gets few changes for 2002. Power mirrors and a power antenna are now standard on all models, and Bright Silver Metallic replaces Blue-Green Chameleon on the color palette.

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Convertible (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I have owned my 2002 trans am convertible for 10 years.It is by far the best car I have ever had. Yellow collector edition,6 speed manual WS6 It runs like hell,and I have goose bumps every time I drive it. It is a fabulous muscle car that I will keep for life. I can't go anywhere without someone asking about the car."Do you want to sell it" NOOOOOOOOO!!!! I could not get more fun on the road and hope to stay out of trouble. This car is my dream car,what else can I say...

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Got this car back in March and wish I had got it sooner. I absolutely love this car! SOM, LS1 power of 300+ HP, 6speed, the works. It has just about everything you'd want for a muscle car w/ room for improvement.

These cars are fun

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

This car is super fast, look great, and turn heads of all ages everywhere I go. It's now 9 years old and is still one of the best looking cars on the road. I've owned mine a few years now with zero problems and I will say that the car is as much fun now as the day I bought it. Highly recommended!




Fantastic!!

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

WS-6, Trans am 2 door coupe artic white, 6 speed manual tranny. Great car, fun to drive, very powerful, lightning fast, great sound system, great gas mileage (28 MPG on a 600 mile round trip). Too bad GM stopped building these. This car will blow just about anything off the road. The car turns heads ( young and old )with it's great looks everywhere I go. It's one of the sharpest cars on the road and the SLP exhaust system sounds great. The car sounds so good that I really don't listen to the radio much. I enjoy the sound of the engine. She purrs like a kitten when idleing or driving at road speed but she roars like a lion when you wind her up. I love this car with no plans to trade or sell.




My ws6 rocks!

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I love my WS6, it is the best car I have ever owned. I have done some under the hood work and with not a lot of money or wrench time. It's now over 450 horsepower and kills just about everything off the line. The interior is a little cheap and needs some work but the engine totally makes up for it. I have never had a serious problem with the car, and she loves the cold weather and the heat and air work better in this then in my friends BMW. Bottom line the WS6 is an amazing machine and not to mention she looks like a beast in someone's rear view mirror!

I am a car guy who has owned over 30 different cars over the last 20 years. All I can say is WOW! This WS6 TA rules the road. I can't believe Pontiac screwed up the marketing so bad. This is an awesome ride. It is blistering fast and can hold four people. It is the closest thing to flying a jet fighter and can still get 26 MPG. I can't praise its handling enough. Mine ran a 13.10 and it is totally stock and I had never raced before. Pontaic under rated the horse power for sure!

After 2002, the Pontiac Firebird/Trans AM will be discontinued. Look for the Opel Speedster (Lotus Elise spinoff) to replace it at your nearest Pontiac dealer:...
