Review of the 2002 Pontiac Montana

  • If you can stomach the heavy doses of plastic trim both inside and out, the Montana offers peppy performance and comfortable passenger accommodations in a feature-laden package.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Available eight-passenger seating, folding third-row seat (extended length models), optional rear parking aid sensor, spunky V6, sporty handling, available all-wheel drive, optional DVD video player.

  • Cons

    Weak offset crash-test scores, cheap interior materials, unrefined powertrain character.

  • What's New for 2002

    Pontiac's big news for the Montana this year is the availability of the Versatrak all-wheel-drive system. Also debuting this year on the Montana is the Thunder Sport package and a very cool DVD entertainment system.

Love this

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Montana Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my dark red Montana from eBay in December 2003 for $11,700 and it had 42,130 miles on it. It has lots of extras including OnStar but I don't use OnStar. Mine is not the extended version. This vehicle is the perfect size. Not too large and not too small. It is the perfect height for getting into and out of. My kids would rather I drive a Cadillac CTS but too bad. But anyway I have just had regular maintenance done and a few minor glitches which I had fixed at Firestone. I have 90,750 miles on it now. Love this van. Oh and it gets 23 mpg. For what I paid I consider this vehicle to be a great value.




Minivan madness

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Montana Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned this vehicle for 2 years and had the head gasket go at 39,000 miles. Heat always feels like it's on when it's not. Backlit sometimes stays off. Headlights dim slightly on and off when driving at times. Would not recommend this van to anyone, I would not buy one again. Beware before you buy. Rattles a lot when driving and bad over bumps.




Montana rocks

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Montana Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

This is an affordable, comfortable van that fits a growing family well. The fuel economy needs some work, but otherwise it is a solid, effective vehicle.




First van

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Montana Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

This is the first time I've owned a van and I love it. The handling and performance is much better than the other brands I tested. The Chrysler version worked too hard to shift and was not comfortable even though it had more features. It is so much easier to get in and out of than a low car. Visibility is improved because of the higher profile, especially for night time driving. I am concerned about the handling in winter driving as this one is not equipped with the traction control.




Rattles noises and squeeks

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Montana Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

The slider doors squeek. The tailgate squeeks and rattles!!! Brake lines, etc. rattle underneath. Annoying squeek in the front end. Every day there is a new noise.
