Why is GM Still Unable to Get it Right!!
By NoLongerAGMCust on


1997 Pontiac Trans Sport SE 3dr Ext Minivan


Vehicle ok for warranty period. One month out of warranty, wing windows died. GM has a new wiring harness to fix problem, but won't cover cost. Lots of squeaks and rattles. I maintain the car per the manual. At 60,000 miles had to repair transmission at approx $1800. Have gone through 3 A/C compressors. Display of radio failed about 6 months out of warranty, along with one of the steering wheel radio control buttons. Contacts for sliding power door don't work well, causing door to not close. Dealer wanted $160 for a replacement cup holder!

Best Features

Like 7 passenger layout with Captains Chairs in mid row. Extended van has good room.

Worst Features

Have friends with Toyota and Honda minivan's without these kind of issues. This is my last GM Vehicle.
