Designed to fail catastrophically

2002 Pontiac Montana Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

For the longest time, the van seemed to be doing all right. Certainly it was comfy to drive, mileage was great, but then things started breaking. A/C, door seals, ABS light, headlights full of water after rain causing me to buy new halogen bulbs every month, various electrical gremlins. The final nail in the coffin was the gaskets failing. Plenty of oil and plenty of coolant, suddenly mixed together then cooling and coagulating in the engine to a peanut butter like consistency. It's being hauled to the auto wreckers this week. Rather than throw the equivalent of a down payment on a new car at this miserable van to fix it, I bought a Toyota 4 Runner instead.

Best Features

Seats were comfy, it had great acceleration.

Worst Features

Everything mechanical and electrical. It's as if its designed to break so they can profit from your mechanical woes.
