1998 Pontiac Trans Sport Montana 4dr Minivan


Review

I have had a few problems with my Transport as well. The Manifold gasket and the radio display being 2 of them. I have also had to replace the power window switch twice on the drivers side. Overall this van has been exceptional. It never breaks down and all problems have been caught in regular checks. I was going to drive it till it died. But it's 10 years old and not even sick!


Best Features

Quality interior & seats. Lots of Power and reliability.


Worst Features

Cup holders are awful, kids stepped on them the first week. Stereo display drove me crazy till I replaced it.

Review

I really like this van, however; I've
had so many problems with it.
Fortunately I bought an extended
warranty, which still has me ahead on
cost compared to Chrysler. However,
the constant trips to the dealer was a
pain. Some of the repeat repairs may
have been due to the dealer's ability.
Problems include: (3)new wiper
assemblies, (2)new torque converters,
new transmission, air leakage
around windows, sliding door alignment,
instrument panel lights & switches at
$125 each, Traction Control Circuit
problems, ABS Brake problems, new
ventilation blower motor, & fuel
level sensor level sensor.


Best Features

Lower initial cost than Chrysler and more features, much nicer interior, and better exterior styling in my opinion. Side plastic keeps the grocery cart dings away, load leveling keeps it riding flat, air compressor great for rec equip. Very comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Just make it more reliable.

Review

With all the money spent on the vehicle, I was sorry to find out that my
Pontiac Montana had virtually no trade-in value. The dealer from whom I
purchased the vehicle did not want to give me more than 1500.


Best Features

The sunglasses holder in the driver console area which now has been replaced by the on-star system controls.


Worst Features

The ability to open the back window for air flow.
