My husband bought his car last year, we have only had it for a couple of months , and most of the time it's at the auto shop. The flexplate keeps breaking , it has already been fixed like 2-3 months and has a new transmission and know we are having a problem with the flexplate again . Since the time we bought it we have really had the car for almost 2 months to ourselves with no problems besides that it's always at the autoshop getting fixed.

I have my pontiac for five yrs. it has 130,000 miles on it.I have not had any issues with it. and now everything is starting to act up. my power steering has been locking up. and my drivers side window will not let down anymore. but i'm going to fix her up and keep on moving because i love my car.

I have 120,560 miles on and had very few problems..nothing major yet..i know now with all these miles if I will start seeing the major problems.i am hoping that I can get by another year with few problems..right now I am in no position to dish out 1,000 of dollars if something big were to happen..i say a prayer evertime I get into my "little green machine". wish me luck guys.and alittle prayer for me won't hurt.do you think I can get another 40,000 out of her if taken care of..any replys will help my nerves. thank you .Katie.

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.
