The engineers who designed the quad4
engine ought to have to pay the repair
bills. Not only is it a costly engine
to keep up, but with the design it is
costly to get to other components to
repair. Just replacing gaskets
everytime you need a repair (such as a
water pump) takes up a month's food
allowance. Now I'm trying to decide to
see if someone will trade it with
needing a valve job or get it fixed and
dump it on another poor soul. I
usually like Pontiacs, but this one is
definitely at the bottom of the
barrel. A costly purchase when 75% of
the purchase price is put into repairs
with in 1 1/2 years.
I don't really have any. Am disgusted
with the whole car.
Get a decent performing engine that
costs "normal" to keep up. Seats are
too hard -- not comfortable.
