2002 Pontiac Firebird Hatchback Formula 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The pontiac 2002 Firebird TransAM coupe has the looks that make you just want to stare at it when you see one. I suspect the Ram Air would put most sports car lovers over the top with envy. There are some negatives that come with the acolades. Three issues in particular are the way the car idles when standing still with the car in drive and foot on the break.( shaky ). The second problem is the Rotors warp frequently. Suspect bad manufactured pads cause extream heat friction that cause the warpage. The third item is the Head lights make alot of noise when closing them. ( Bang! ) Otherwise a great car looking car with excellent speed when you need it most.


Best Features

Body looks. T-Tops and Stereo 10 speaker system


Worst Features

Breaking system, idling, headlights closing.

2002 Pontiac Firebird Hatchback Formula 2dr Hatchback (5.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

It is the best car to drive. fuel economy is great when you consider the power it puts out. it is very comfortable for 2 passengers and the t- tops are great, you essentially get a convertable without convertable problems. The price was great when you think of what you can get in that size for that price. A vw bettle?


Best Features

T-tops! 6 speed tranny with a powerfull 5.7L and the sound system is top notch for a stock system with 500W peak power 10 speakers and a graphic equalizer. I like the storage for the t-tops it is not like you have to leave them at home like other full removable roofs.


Worst Features

Factory tinted glass would be nice. Aadjustable suspension like the corvette would be perfect to switch between soft and firm ride, I find the ride to be too soft some times but other times it is just right and rides smooth down the highway.

Review

Recently bought a loaded 02 base coupe, just an unbelievable car. Looks, performance, and features all well worth the price... Get compliments all the time, and it's a blast to drive also.... why are they being discontinued??? This is Knight Rider's car!!!!


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

Bring it back in '04..... just imagine what a marketing "scam" that would be to "discontinue" it for just a year....

Review

This is a fun vehicle to drive. 200 horses is plenty to get around town...and occasionally out run some other cars. The steering is great and makes corners a blast. T Tops are a must for this car.


Best Features

Braking is great as well as just about everything else Pontiac did to this car.


Worst Features

Response time from gas pedal to engine is a little slower than my 95 Firebird, but other than that, its great
