This was a great program car driven previously by Pontiac executives. It had 24,000 miles on it when we got it. It lasted through two new babies and numerous long road trips. Lots of safety features are built into the operator controls and interior features. It was a good car, but not 100% reliable like many of the imports.
Large comfortable seats and good insulation make driving this car a pleasant experience. The all-electric control panel has lockouts for children's windows and doors. Gas mileage of the durable 3.1 V6 was an incredible 28 mpg! 4-wheel disc brakes stop on a dime.
Weak transmission needs torque converter every 90,000 miles. No hazard flashers. Replaced two $200 alternators due to the huge drain of the all-electric controls and daytime running lights. Interior control knobs broke off with sunlight deterioration and were VERY costly.
