Vehicle: 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport 3dr Minivan

Manifold repaired, electrical problems everywhere, interior heating and cooling does not work, engine light, air bag and abs sensor lights on, worst vehicle I have ever owned The handling however is the best I have had even over a Honda Civic Family owns a 2000 Montana - same problems so GM is not listening or caring

Owned for 1 year with no problems. Has plenty of power. With the standard length van means less weight to lug around.

Owned my 98 for 4 years. Traded it in with 55,000 miles. Engine coolant leaked and brakes were squealing.
