Vehicle2005 Pontiac Montana MontanaVision 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewThis is the last of the old-style Montanas, sold in Canada as a 2005 model. I was attracted to the low price (used) - half the cost of an Odyssey or Sienna. I had also heard the bad head gasket had been solved. Ours had about 42,000 miles on it when we bought it. It has performed well over the past year, though we had to replace a bad front wheel bearing, the rubber door gaskets came loose and the wind stretched the driver's door hinges (fixed at our local college). Recently replaced the crap General tires with Michelins and vastly improved the ride and noise; gas mileage is better too. The one thing we can't address are the rattles in the sliding doors. Overall, great value in a used van.
Best FeaturesMontanavision DVD works great. Comfortable seating can be removed as needed. Good power and gas mileage - better than our old Mercury Villager. Styling is better than the dorky Montana SV6.
Worst FeaturesFront brakes grind - looking forward to replacing them with premium aftermarket parts. The interior rattles drive me crazy. GM needs to spend more time sweating the details.
