"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."

For ease of getting in and out of, good comfort

"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."

"I bought this car new on a whim in 2008 when my Buick started giving me fits. It was on the lot and had remote start and heated seats. I had the dealership install rear parking sensors, which is the only thing I've ever had problems with. I replaced the tires at 70,000 (not because I HAD to - I had a blowout on the highway in a car 30 years ago and am a little OCD about tires now)and the battery around the same time. I had one issue with a belt at the 5 year mark which was replaced under warranty. Overall it has been extremely reliable and a pleasure to own. I love the monthly reports from OnStar regarding the maintenance of the vehicle. My only complaint with the car is noise - road noise is a little loud on the highway."

"Loved this car when I bought it. Has a blind spot in the right rear and is not good on snow covered hills in the winter. Other than that, I would buy another one if they were still made. Have taken several weekend trips over the years and it was easy driving, road well, great gas mileage on cruise."
