Our Montana was wheel chair adapted with an automatic side ramp. All modifications were to our satisfaction. My husband is in a power chair and easily has enough head space. The size of the van was a deciding factor in purchasing this van for our needs, and also a domestic product. It is a 2003 with 78,000 miles and is still going strong. We just decided against buying a new van because ours is still low cost maintenance.
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:)
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.
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.
I bought my Montana with 7000 miles on it and now have 254,000. Consistently get 24-25 MPG. Put new heads on at 200K;seals at 100K but nothing else major.Been a great vehicle for the price. Hope to make it last another 2 years. 300K possible?
I like everything about this van and would like to buy another one, but the reviews for the 2006 scare me away. Love the fold down third row seat.
