Vehicle

2005 Pontiac Montana Minivan SV6 4dr Minivan w/1SB (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I have had to alternators installed, both front stabilizer bars installed, power rear window bracket installed, does not have a lot of power to get onto the freeways. The air conditioning does not work all the time, it cuts in and out ( more out than in ) in traffic, better to open the windows. I have been a GM buyer for a long time but after this one I think I will change.

this vehicle has plenty to offer. It has surpassed my expectations. Roomy interior and practical environment. Stands out in the "mini- van" category.

2005 Pontiac Montana Minivan SV6 4dr Minivan w/1SB (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

We've now had this van for a full year. Generally, we're still quite satisfied with the van, its comfort and quality. The leather has held up well, the DVD player is more popular than ever and the AC blows like a January blizzard. However (oops, there's that word...) a few minor things have cropped up in the past year including a powered door that stopped working, brake trouble (not serious )a loose trim piece covering the sliding doors' track and a radio that switches stations w/o warning (only happens on one certain frequency ...huh?) All fixed quickly and cheerfully and under warranty, but should these have happened in the first place?

Roomy, comfortable, problematic
By unsolicitedadvice on 08/01/06 00:23 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2005 Pontiac Montana Minivan 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Purchased 1 yr old with 25K miles. Put 20K on it during ownership. Tons of room, with a comfortable-for-adults, fold-flat third row. Fits 5 adult passengers with 2nd row bench seating and 6+ full-sized luggage pieces with third row folded. Much storage. Engine was powerful to begin with, but definitely had lost noticeable "punch" after one year. CD stereo radio sound was adequate but not great. Questionable build quality created worrisome driving @ 42K miles with a loud, metallic "clanking" sound when riding over bumps (dealer attempted to fix, but sound resurfaced within 5K); "ghost" power door that closed on command but opened by itself when parked; "chirping" noises when I turned right.

Do Not buy GM

Review

I brought this van in Sep05. The ENGINE has been replaced 2 times. The Low Oil Presure Message and the ABS light are still coming on once a while. The gas gauge is fluctuating. The dealer still does not know how to fix it. DO NOT BUY GM.

Pontiac Montana has a few discomforts
By pontiac montana on 04/04/06 10:20 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2005 Pontiac Montana Minivan SV6 4dr Minivan w/1SA (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Our experience was good until at 11,000 miles an awful harmonic sound began occuring at highway speeds of 65-75 mph. Dealer could not locate it and we all directed it to the replacement of the passenger side headlamp but to no avail. After 3 visits to dealer,and 3000 miles, it was discovered that noise "probably" taking place in driver's side door as we placed a handkerchief on the weatherstrip by the mirror and it ceased completely for 1500 miles. But the sound is attempting to return but not as painful as before. Plastic door trim on each side appears loose and causes concerns of faulty installation.We miss the lights that stay on on our dodge caravan as well as the door locked sound

It's been great...

Review

Our first close to new vehicle... it is perfect for all of our needs. I would like to have had it in an all wheel drive. It is very comfortable to drive. Our first preference would have been the Toyota Sienna, but this fit our budget better. Highly recommended.

Review

We just purchased our montana with 29,000 miles. it is still under warranty but we also bought the full warranty just in case so we do not have out of pocket expenses down the road. We had a 12 screen dvd player installed for the kids as an after market feature. it is awesome. we love it so far. I did notice a whistling type sound coming from the windsheild when going over 50....anyone else had that?

Love the SV6!

Review

I had did comparisons between the Uplander and SV6. Found the SV6 to be a better deal. We purchased a 2005 in 2/06, so it was one of the last of the previous year to be sold off the lot. Had pretty much all options on it, which is great. The standard DVD system is great for our 2 yr old.
