This is one of those cars that's almost as American as apple pie. Pontiac is one of the companies you think of when you think of a modest quality car for a modest price. It's not big and fancy, it's not small and extremely fuel efficient. What it is... is reliable. Pontiac allowed much of the public access to a great, affordable, stylish car, with just enough pizzazz above the Grand Am. For the age of the vehicle I currently own, it has stood the test of time. The interior is still in great shape, the electronics all still work, the handling and ride feel of this car is impeccable. It sails smoothly down the road. The gas mileage is respectable at 28 mpg average between city and highway driving. For a car packing a powerful, six-cylinder engine, this is a great balance of ride versus f... (more)
Story
When the girlfriend and I pack up the vehicle for camping trips. We were able to have enough space to fit our camping gear and hit the road for a fun adventure, often several times a summer.
Pros
On my particular car, it has power mirrors and a power driver seat. The cloth interior is very comfortable, even though the seat has become deformed over the years, it's held up very well. The trunk is very spacious, and the rear seats fold down to provide even more interior space for transporting items that are longer than the trunk can accommodate by itself. The red dash lights are easy on the eyes for night driving.
Cons
Probably the most negative thing would only be the recalls that were necessary due to poor design of the intake gasket of the engine.

I do not like that it requires a lot of tire rotations. For some reason, the tires wear uneven, and it requires them to be rotated frequently. The ABS and traction have gone out, but the car still drives without issue. Overall, the car has been really great for winter driving. It stays on the road even in the snowiest/icy conditions. It starts every time in cold weather. No issues with the power steering, but mechanics have commented on whether I have struggled with steering. I would definitely buy this type of car again if I didn't need something bigger.
Story
North Shore, MN, we drove down an icy hill to see a lakeside park. We didn't realize that we would then have to drive back up the icy hill. I thought we would need a tow truck, as there was no way this tiny car would make it through all the snow and ice. But the car made it up with little to no problems with the snow and ice. There was a few moments where we thought the car was about to slide ... (more)
Pros
Reliable, power features, performance, steering, comfortable seating, spacious trunk, drivability, and size.
Cons
Tires wear unevenly, back window is tiny, wish it had a audio adapter or cassette player instead of the CD player, and the back seat area is tiny long legs don't fit well.

It's the only dealership I've purchased from. It was okay, they sold me the car and there weren't many hassles involved.
