I bought my montana with barely any miles on it it was in pristine condition! After having it for five years I hunt, fish, camp, and haul quit a bit with it! I have a one place trailer that my Harley(motorcycle) Skidoo(snowmachine)and polaris(4wheeler) all fit on nicely (one at a time that is) and i don't even know they are there i make 1600 plus mile long trips in the thing in Ak witch isn't known for its nice flat hyws if you know what i mean.Then I slap the seats back in it and its my ol'ladys soccer mom wagon! I have had to replace a few things on it but mostly because of operator err like I said I am very hard on things and yet this mini van seems to keep right up with me! I Love Mine!

Just as other reviews have stated, I too have had to replace the bearings.
The headlight housing fills up with water during every rain storm.
This in turn has caused my Instrument Panel to kind of short out.
First the heat/water gauge, next the gas gauge, then the speedometer.
Which comes and goes at will.
It's arount 700-800 $ to fix, but with the water short problem, I don't see the point with the poor design.
Also everything plastic in this car has broken.
The cupholder door in the front of the van.
The window switches on both sides.
The motor is going on the drivers side window which is used more.
This is my second GM product and I won't be fooled again.

This car was purchased new in 2004. It currently has 172,000 miles on the odometer and it still runs great. I have kept the oil changed every 3,000 miles and Dealer recommended services performed. The only problems I have had with the car is the wheel bearings had to be replaced and the air conditioner has problems cooling as it should.
Versatrak all-wheel drive is now an available option on all models as is a CD/MP3 player and XM Satellite Radio. Front and side impact airbags are now standard. Pontiac has decided not to offer separate Value and base trim levels this year; the lineup now consists of a base model and the highline MontanaVision. Note that ABS and second-row captain's chairs are now optional rather than standard on base models.
