"For an SUV that supposedly comes from GM's performance division, there is nothing sporty about this car's driving dynamics. At least the styling is slightly better than that of it's (nearly identical) corporate sibling, the Chevrolet Equinox. The interior noise is far too loud - why didn't Pontiac include a cargo cover/shelf? The engine's 180 HP and 201 ft/lb torque (from a 3.4L V-6 no less) are simply an embarrassment and don't get me started on the fuel economy. Ride quality is poor due in large part to incredibly stiff springs. How many buyers of SUVs actually take them off-road? Very few. So why, GM, did you seemingly engineer the suspension for the Paris-Dakkar rally? Thankfully this vehicle is a stop gap car for me. When the transmission on our 2001 Honda Odyssey failed earlier this year, I needed something to get me through the summer. (Oh how I miss Honda's smooth, powerful and fuel efficient 3.5L V-6!!). I can't wait to trade this beast in on a Honda, Volkswagen, Hyundai or Toyota while it still has trade-in value left."
Pros: "Driving, smooth, safe, mid size, well built"
Cons: "technical errors, MPG"

"Awesome for both highway and city driving with just the right amount of room for those people trying to decide on a smaller or bigger car. The vehicle is now up to 197000 miles and nothing major has broken on it yet. The only downside is the StabilTrak system lights flashing and the tire pressure system usually is not working but that can be easily overlooked to how well the car drives and its reliability mechanically. The only complete downside to the car is its MPG compared to todays cars, with it getting about 116 city and 20 highway, which was not bad at all in 2007."
"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."
