Best vehicle i've had so

Vehicle: 2000 Pontiac Montana 4dr Minivan

I've had a short version of Montana for 5 years now. The van has 380,000km on it and it still runs. I only had to deal with minor problems. Just do your regular maintenance on this car and it will serve you well. So far this van has lived in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver. I'm upgrading to 2003 Pontiac Montana Thunder as it has many improvements over the previous models. AWD and independent suspension are just two of the many features. If you are looking for a good, reliable and enjoyable vehicle to own, look no further; there simply is no better option given their cost.




It is what it is

Has been a decent vehicle for our family. My Grandmother owned one that was plowed into a tree at about 30+ mph and I liked how the vehicle withstood the crash so we bought one. My wife loves it and I have had to make quite a few repairs lately because she doesn't want to let it go. If your Montana is overheating, without getting oil in your antifreeze, and antifeeze is being pushed out of your holding tank it's the head gasket. I learned that the hard/expensive way. Currently has 151,000 miles hope it gives me plenty more.




Wouldn't do it again (continued)

I made the decision to never buy a GM vehicle again in 2005. In that same year, my other vehicle was hit and we used the insurance money to buy a used 1992 Acura Vigor. That vehicle now has 250K miles on it and is just now starting to wear out. In the five years Iíve owned it, Iíve put 130K miles on it and never had to do anything but routine maintenance. In my view, itís too bad that bankruptcy didnít end in GMís total elimination from the market. Iíve driven their cars for 25+ years, waiting for them to improve the quality of their product to something acceptable and it hasnít happened. The cars they made back then had nothing but electrical problems and the same is still true

12. Rear taillight assembly/wiring replaced due to shorts 13. Rear wiper motor failed 14. Rear hatch dampers replaced 15. Rear hatch strap broke almost immediately 16. Rear automatic windows will not open 17. Radio display has not worked for years 18. Gas gauge reads only either full or empty Ė and incorrectly at that 19. Driver and passenger side power windows will roll down but not back up. GM wants $1,000 each for replacement motors (insane). I found them on the internet for $125 each as part of a window regulator kit. 20. AC fan hardly works. 21. Transmission has intermittently shifted hard for 5 years, but has not failed. 22. Gas tank cover door broken and will not close

Well, for those of you who care, here is a rare opportunity to get some more feedback on this vehicle roughly 5 years after the original post. My Montana is now 10 years old and now has 176K miles on it. I think the repair track record (in addition to the normal stuff) speaks for itself: 1. Head gasket ~ $1,500 2. Failed water pump 3. Engine will intermittently rev high and only returns to normal after the engine is shut off and restarted. 4. Driver side sliding door literally fell off Ė failed weld on the main bearing assembly 5. Interior ceiling trim around driver side sliding door fell off. (Held on by double-sided sticky tape) 6. Passenger side sliding door motor failed closed




Loved it

This was the best minivan I have ever owned. I never had any problems with it and it was very reliable transportation. I had two children that were in car seats when this van was purchased, so the dual sliding doors came in very handy.
