"Look around and see if you can find a fast sporty car of any brand like the Trans Am.... especially for the money! If you want your jollies then this car should be on your short List. I have been trying to find a newer sports car that I might like better but the newer model cars from Mercedes Benz to Corvette are having boatloads of $ervice troubles for 4 times the money!"

"I have to say I will drive this car as long as it lets me. I am very happy with it. Considering it is over 13 years old I have had little issues with it. Nothing major and I still drive it today. It has 170,000 miles on it as of now."

"I disagree with the price Kelly Blue book gives my Firebird TransAm WS-6 special edition package.. No selections in the KBB list for the HEARST drive train package or the WS-6 high performance and suspension package or the full leather interior or the 12 disc CD changer package etc.. Additionally, I have one of the very last ones built in 2002, a collectors edition. And the $15,000 price KBB puts on the quote is just not realistic, especially for pristine not made any more vehicles. As for the car, there is no other like it. From the body conforming seats to the power output to the amenities like subdued internal stock LED lighting, this car is awesome. And driving it is second to none.."

"I bought this car with 91k miles on it and it is awesome. fast and turns heads, when in this shape it runs ok. love the sound and feel. i love it but i got to say not the most reliable car ever, it has left me stranded a time or too. plus not very easy to get in/out of and storage space is a joke, i always put groceries in the backseat because the little trunk is already filled with essentials. fuel tank is tiny and i cant tell exactly how much is in there because there is no heads up light and the guage is dysfunctional. and: NOT a winter car. no sir. still sexy"

"Still an incredibly fun, fast, responsive car. While I have a 2013 Challenger, it stays in the driveway. The Trans-Am is in the garage. And that's how it should be. Other than the A/C compressor, all original. The dealer had literally just gotten this car in so I was able to break it in myself which so far guarantees long life in my cars. This one is and always has been a keeper."

"This has been a great car. ALWAYS starts! Gets 22 miles to the gallon. Pretty to look at and great lines. Has stayed in very good condition without any major repairs. The engine is beautiful! Love the sound of that power. Little hard to get in and out of, but, i'm getting older, lol! Overall, has been a great vehicle."
