"I love this car and that is why I have kept it this long. The only complaint that I have is that it does not handle snow very well especially more than 3+". Love the comfort and the ride. Enough room for me to work out of. Would probably buy another one if they were still available."

"I really like the hight of the seating. Just slide in and out. Love the way the steering handles.Take curves and corners with ease. Never got stuck anywhere.Has gumption. Press on the gas and it goes! The only thing that I didn't like was the way the windsheild was put in. Hard to get the snow cleared."

"This vehicle was a great addition up to about 1 year ago. Since then, I continue to burn oil, have had to have the power steering module replaced and have over heating issues."

"I like the handling, comfort, and reliability. Its AWD plows through Michigan's Upper Peninsula's heavy snows. I purchased it at 14,000 miles and only had 2 issues in the 98,000 miles I have driven it so far. The rear wiper shorted out and one transmission issue that was covered under warranty. This is my 3rd Pontiac and I like them (I put 215,000 on a Bonneville, loved that car!!!). Very disappointed they have been discontinued."
