1995 Pontiac Trans Sport Minivan SE 3dr Minivan


Review

Have put about 40,000 miles since purchasing this vehicle. The engine was replaced 120,000 miles ago, but the chassis is very good. At 290,000 miles, just starting to get minor tranny leaks and just now replaced the tie rods (cheap if you do it yourself!). The gas mileage seems poor 18-20 per gallon and it really labors pulling my 12' pop up camper. I would not tow more than a boat with this even though it is supposed to be rated at 2400-3000 lbs. The tow package has no transmission cooler so you could burn out your tranny in a hurry. Good second vehicle for a big family. Fits 7 but is cramped on long trips. Looking to upgrade to a conversion van for space and better towing. Ditto on electic issue


Best Features

Body refuses to rust, chassis was built solidly. Leather looks nice and lasts.


Worst Features

Engine is not very durable compared to other V-6. A lot of electrical issues. Power door works during certain phases of the moon, temp monitor way off, gas guage not accurate, relay dead on cruise.

Review

Since I bought this car in 2001, I've
put a few bucks into it. Two water
pumps, a computer and prom, neutral
safety switch, one ball joint, one tie-
rod, and a fuel pump. The front brakes
and rotors I did myself so that saved
me a couple bucks. I was having trouble
with the passenger side window but I
found the broken wire. The A/C Heater
control has never lit up with lights on
but I know where everthing is even in
the dark. New plugs & wires were done
at 115,000 miles. The car now has
138,000 mi. on it. I guess my biggest
fear is that of the unknown....How long
will the tranny last.Right now it seems
fine but who knows?


Best Features

The traction control and power sliding door are two great features as well as the dual Heat/ Air cond. The best feature I believe is the plastic body...no rust! I had a Buick mechanically sound but the body was shot.


Worst Features

The rear window washer switch is screwy. To wash you go all the way down but if you don't quickly move the switch to the wipe position, it's on delay and it doesn't keep wiping to clean the window.

Review

Of all the cars we've had during the
course of a 48 year marriage, this is
our favorite. We will never trade it in.
The design is perfect, especially the
slanted front window and vertical back
window. Air currents when the car is in
motion keep the windshields free and
clear. It's a comfortable car to drive
or to ride in.


Best Features

The front windshield is canted so that it stays clear whether you're driving in a snowstorm or bug-storms.


Worst Features

Bring the design back. We need a new car.

Review

WATCH OUT. We are having to put the
3rd engine in this vehicle. On our way
home from our holidays, the bottom went
out again, just 16 months after putting
in another motor (not rebuilt). There
is a pattern here. It seems that the
motor "goes" at about 155,000
kilometers. DO NOT BUY!!


Best Features

Leather interior and space is ver nice.


Worst Features

GM needs to do something about the motor. Having to put in a 3rd motor (the 2nd in 16 months) is TOO MUCH and TOO COSTLY!!
