2005 Pontiac Montana MontanaVision 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


The good news is the Montana is a well designed minivan that eats up the miles comfortably and returns good gas mileage. The bad news is the van is built with cheap plastic inside that readily falls apart. The rear hatch pull strap broke in my wife's hand after only a few months. The transmission hesitates a little and I fear it will break down sooner than later. Wind caught the driver's door last week and yanked it hard against the hinges (fully open) and bent the top hinge. Talk about cheaply made! Now the door whistles on the highway. Looking for a good bodyshop that can fix it properly. These vans are very cheaply made!

Best Features

Comfortable seats; long-distance cruiser; decent gas mileage; inexpensive to buy used (steep depreciation).

Worst Features

Better interiors (Pontiac listened - the SV6 is way better), stronger unibody and improved transmission. I'd like to buy American, but I'm afraid my next van will be a Toyota.
