Review of the 2003 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

We love our montana mini

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Montana MontanaVision Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

We bought our Montana minivan new in 2003. It is now 2013 and we're putting it up for sale. It has 260,000 miles on it and has been the best reliable vehicle we've ever bought. The only thing we had to replace was two hub assemblies and the alternator just went out last week. 260,000 miles on the same alternator.. Unheard of.. Just crazy. We've been from New York to Texas to Florida and all parts in between. It's been a great family car. Thank you GM for making a reliable vehicle. It's been a great ride:)

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Montana Value Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

The best used car.. We bought this car used with 90k+ miles on it. Now it is 140k++. And its still running fine, without any issues. Just oil changes and brakepad changes. Very stable car and great pickup. Hwy MPG can go as high as 27-28, better than any sedan of the same time frame. Excellent car.

Satisfying to own

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Montana Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

We've had a good ownership experience with our Montana. It's been quite reliable, with few major breakdowns in our eight years of ownership. While the vehicle isn't luxuriously equipped, it is comfortably appointed and feels luxurious in a Pontiacian sort of way. Haling the seats in and out is a pain...even worse than the Pontiac TransPort we had before it...but it has been one of the more satisfying cars I've owned.

What's New for 2003

The Montana gets only a few minor upgrades for 2003. The most notable change is the addition of an extended-length version of the Special Value van with a 60/40-split bench second-row seat as standard. More available free flow options also give the Value van a greater range of equipment.
