Okay, I bought this car for $900 with 85k on it...a steal right?...yes, but just like ma says.."you get what you pay for". This car scares the hell out of me sometimes. There is obviously a problem with the cylinders that causes them to work twice as hard as they should and I'm almost positive the engine has an oil leak in it, which from what I hear Pontiac had problems with on this model in the past. The engine is strong and the car always starts but not without scary sounds from the "grinding" transmission....It's horrible...you can hear every gear! Mine also has a swaybar problem that causes the car to bounce all over the place. The only time it really smooths out is on the expressway!.
ABS, power steering. Incredible fuel efficiency! For such a cheaply made car the stereo is awesome!
Cup holders! The front one can't fit more than a 12oz. can of soda. Better tranny...you should not hear the thump of every gear switch!
