Vehicle1999 Pontiac Montana 4dr Ext Minivan
ReviewWe bought this new and enjoyed it
greatly. This was our 2nd choice, the
honda van was not available at a
reasonable price. The initial ride,
power and economy were as promised. The
dealership offered the car at a
reasonable price fully optioned. Now
with 130,000 miles it is long in the
tooth and not aging gracefully. Even
with careful maintainance there are too
many nickle and dime problems. Warrenty
repairs: trip computer, radio,
seatbelts, power door, power window. Non
Warrenty repairs: Intake gasket at 70k
(900.00 repair avoided using 2.00 can of
stop leak , still holding at 130k), c/v
joint, a/c compressor, air shocks, brake
calipers & rotors.
Best FeaturesInterior comfort and room on trips.
Worst FeaturesMake van more owner friendly by making the engine and accessories more accessable for maintaince. This car is difficult and expensive to maintain over the long haul. Even DIY oil changes are difficult.
