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

Review

The front driver/passenger have a fairly good ride Transmission is smooth with plenty of motor power. Misleading ads when it comes to available storage space, compared to the previous models. This model is drifting away from its true mission of what a mini van should stand for. It was poorly conceived to carry baggage with the seats folded. There is a need to increase the size door pockets to storage. This model has too much for for movie goers, with 4 oversized hardplastic headset holders poorly located for passager's own comfort, 2 pop-corn table with plenty of pop holders. The passager's second row of seat has a lot to be desired with restricted leg room. They did away with fog lights

Nice Ride

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

Review

The SV6 is a very stylish fun to drive vehicle. The kids love the dvd system, and all the captain chairs and soundsystem. The low step in height is great. Front visiblity is perfect while not so in the rear(head rests get in the way) The power rear doors are great. The seats are super comfortable much more so than others we test drove.( My husband & I test drove them all I bet). We didn't mind them not being stow and gow as they were so much more comfortable. The only complaint is maybe power when on the highway fully loaded with people & luggage felt a little sluggish but other than that perfect.

Best Pontiac I have had so far.....

Review

I rented the SV6 for our Grand Canyon vacation this year. With 2 12 yrs olds, a 17 yr old and 2 adults traveling together - we loved it. Plenty of room and everyone had excellent views while traveling. We were impressed enough to trade in my 2000 Boneville for a 2005 SV6. For me at 5'3" the SV6 in much more confortable to drive than my Bonneville had been.I commute 65 miles roundtrip each week day and after driving the SV6 for two weeks - I am very pleased with it.After 2 Bonnevilles and a Grand Am this is my favorite Pontiac yet.It doesn't feel like a minivan at all - sure doesn't look like one either.

2nd Montana

Review

When I saw the employee pricing, I decided to trade my 03 Montana for a 05, but I could not find one that I wanted. Looked at the SV6, thought about it and got a loaded one. 4 weeks later it was on the road for a 4 week vacation in NE. 3 bikes on top, rear seats down, loaded to the gills. What a joy. DVD and the ability to multitask the sound system was great. Satellite radio! Where was it when I was driving cross county in 1980. Seems to be a little less elbow room in the front, but the change in the interior of the doors makes up for it. Plenty of storage space, like the removable storage compartment. Good for putting things away when parking in the city.

It's A great Van!

Review

I shopped around for a few months looking for a van and this was the best layout and design for our family that i found. The options were exactly what we needed and the fit and finish were excellent. The van is quiet and a lot of fun to drive. The braking is noticably better than other vans.

Early use, but promising!

Review

Having owned a '96 Voyager previously, we were VERY pleased with our Montana. The quality and materials are first rate and the build appears to be solid. We had to get the chrome wheels for $650 (pricey!)and weren't allowed to exchange them for cheaper alloys due to the employee discount rules. The ride is butter smooth and the power adequate. With the employee discount, we feel that we received an excellent value for the money. A reccommended vehicle!

A Great New Minivan
By Francis Patt on 07/24/05 09:03 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

The drive was very quiet, much quieter than Chrysler products and much less body roll than either the Honda or the Toyota vans. Acceleration was reasonable, if not peppy, it again was better than other "top reviewed" vans. The power doors aren't hard to close and the remote button is awesome. Handlimg was all I would have expected and the braking was excellent. Much better than the priginal Montana and better than the Chrysler product we traded in. Apparently the four wheel disk brakes function much better than the drums in the rear of other vans. This van is for my wife and she loves it. I'd say GM hit a homerun with this vehicle.

Great performance and mileage
By Montana Owner on 06/13/05 12:41 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

Excellent acceleration beyond what the horsepower rating says. Maybe it's due to the torque. Handling is great too. No problems with reliability or anything else. Mileage is super compared to the performance too. I got 26 mpg with 4 adult passengers with luggage on a long trip, and 27.5 mpg on a solo trip when I set cruise control at 60 mph.

Better ride styling ,power ,engine. Not crazy about the 17"wheels.They do nothing but add cost to the van. Safety has been greatly improved.They deleted 8 passenger option.Very useful. Center seats do not fold as well as previous models
