engineered to fail
By leefan32 on
1999 Pontiac Montana 4dr Ext Minivan
Owned it for 3 years now and everything I heard would fail did. I even changed the tranny fluid and antifreeze when I bought it at 20000 miles (32000km) but this year the tranny was revving high before changing gears and failed, then 3 months later there is a slight smell of antifreeze when the engine is warm and we find out the intake gasket is leaking - this is all before hitting 50000 miles (80000km). I know 4 other people who have similar vans and have had the same things changed. I bought the vehicle with really low miles so i wouldn't have to buy the ext warranty MISTAKE! if you get suckered into buying this do youself a favour get the ext warranty cause you will need it!
good on gas for the size of vehicle but hey it's mostly plastic
reliability!! no wonder your lease program does well most people would rather lease and get a full warranty than buy and keep sinking money in these pieces of junk.
