Still a good van after 5 years

1997 Pontiac Trans Sport Minivan SE 3dr Ext Minivan

Review

I've been very happy with this purchase. We have 4 children and the rear air and 8 passenger options were a perfect choice for our gang and their friends. It's been paid for for over a year now and we have 95,000 on it. I don't have any plans to sell it. It still looks and runs great.

Excellent Vehicle rating

1997 Pontiac Trans Sport Minivan SE 3dr Ext Minivan

Review

We bought this van new, the first model year. I was anxious about having the first model year and so we purchased the extended warranty, we have not had a single problem with the van and it now has 90,000 miles on it. It was reliable on all our cross country trips and has gotten better gas mileage than most cars. Our friends have trouble with their Caravans, Aerosports and Honda Vans, our Transport has been the most reliable.

Beware of first year models
By Disappointed Owner on 06/05/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

1997 Pontiac Trans Sport Minivan SE 3dr Ext Minivan

Review

It is the most comfortable van to take road trips with, powerful, and for a minivan, get's excellent gas mileage. About 26 to 28 on the highway. Since 1997 was the first total re-do of the Trans Sport line, this may be one reason it hasn't faired too well in the long run. I purchased the van used (in 1998) From about 60,000 miles up, the following has been repaired: Power steering pump Power steering rack (twice) A/C Compressor Radiator Water Pump Steering column failure ABS and TCS system Power Accessory Control Module Wiper blade arm (stripped) Front headlights fell apart Air bag (still to be repaired)
