Pros: "good price, great gas economy, lots of leg room."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I use the van to haul my music equipment and can fit my sound system, full set of drums and four people. No other minivan has that kind of space. It rides really well with plenty of power and until this last year didn't require much maintenance. I did put in another engine when the old one had a head gasket leak and overheated. On the road to W. Va., I used the mileage monitor and it showed 33 MPG. on the highway. Around town, I usually average between 17 and 19. I'm going to hate giving it up sometime in the future."

"Sure it has a lot of little problems with switches and knobs, interior wear and tear. But the motor uses no oil! Nothing leaks!"

"I've had this vehicle for about 12 years. It has been an excellent choice for me, as it is very easy to get into/out of the vehicle. Not only for me, but for anyone riding with me, especially when I take my elderly friends with me. I love the quad seating; the gas mileage has been very good; it does very well in winter weather. Overall, I've been very pleased with the performance and the appearance of this vehicle."

"Upon test drive. Really nice. I drove it for 3 days and it quit running. We have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, pressure regulator, relays,starter,battery, and have checked and rechecked everything to do with the fuel and starting system. Still will not start. I paid $2100.00 it had 181K and looked beautiful. Found out heads had been pulled and had been wrecked. Have been and still am stranded. I have put an extra $800.00 into it. I am so broke now after putting every single dime I had saved into it. What do I do? Cant sell it cant trade it and still it wont start. This is the worst thing that has ever happened. Can anyone help here? It would be appreciated."

"I have owned this 1997 Pontiac Transport Montana for over 8 years(bought it from an elderly family friend)at 59,000 miles. I have traveled cross country with it for many family and sporting events and have really enjoyed owning this vehicle. I recently purchased a 2005 model and am happy with it so far. I hope to continue to purchase another one when I need to upgrade the newer one."
