I've owned this car for 7 years and never had a problem. At 115 000 miles Im just changing my shocks and struts for the first time. all I ever did was change the oil every 3,000 miles and change the breaks a couple of times. Completely happy with my car. Ive beenbuying Pontiacs since 1960. Im going to miss them. Never had a bad one.
I've never been so ready to get rid of anything like this in my life! Looks can be deceiving.
