1990 Pontiac Trans Sport SE 3dr Minivan
Moved to the North Country 12 years ago and needed a safe, dependable vehical for my wife. Working as an Automobile Consultant for a local dealer, I saw and elderly couple trading in their 1990 Trans Sport SE with 123K miles on it in 1998, I asked the owner of the dealership if he would sell it to me for the amount he allowed the owners of the van in trade, ($1000.00) which he agreed to and when I took it home I realized that the previous owners had taken excellent care of the van and it was loaded with every option that was available in 1990 for that model. I now have 200K miles and it still looks great and runs great. What a great investment. Thank you Pontiac. PS, it gets 24 mpg too.
Great handling, center of gravity seating in very comfortable seats, smooth ride, great visibility.
Too bad it had to be a Unibody because the frame will rust out before the rest of the vehicle, the fiber glass body is a great idea and still looks new.
