Used 1999 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Consumer Reviews
A Trans Am is a great car for drivers that a really responsible and use caution. I love driving my car everwhere I go because it is very dependable and fuel effiecient. I think Trans Ams are the most popular car among U.S. consumers today. I think that they will bring these popular cars back out on the market soon because, people can't live without them.
I've had my Trans Am for almost 9 years. I have 225,010 miles on it and I still love it! I am going to have to get a new car within the next couple of months because I'm on the road so much and I need something with better fuel economy - if they still made them I'd get another one though!
The ls1 is a world class engine that no other manufacturer can match for the money, BAR NONE. It is more reliable, makes more power,& responds better to modifications than any other engine I've seen. There is no better bang for the buck, PERIOD. END OF STORY. There are better cars out there, Sure, but I'm not gonna pay TWICE the money or more for the same performance this car offers. It's had a couple headlight motors go out, two headlight bulbs, and a couple window motors fail. It's not a 100k dollar car though, so I can't complain.
The Firehawk edition offers excellent performance. The car accelerates extremely well, and the handling is good with the modified suspension. I also like the look of the custom hood. The sound system is excellent for a factory system. My only complaint is that I've had several major repairs done under warranty, which make me question build quality.
I recently sold my Firebird Convertible for something a little quicker. This car currently has 37,xxx miles on the clock and its in outstanding condition. I love the power coming from the 5.7L LS1, same motor as my dad's '00 Corvette Convertible. When you stomp on it, this thing answers back with a lot of roar and put-you-in-your-seat power. I've done a few things with the motor to free up some more ponies and put some grippier rubber on with new 18 inch wheels, really makes this car that much more enjoyable. Its a shame GM isn't talking about bringing it back, they could really make some money if they did. I know I'd buy one, if they designed it right with the enthusiast at heart.
