I went to D&M for body work on my 76' Stingray. I was told they would blend the front to match the paint. Then I was told they said if it was needed they would....but originallly they explained that the cost of blending was built into the estimate. So after the Body Manager explained how he owned his own body shop and only worked on porshe and ferrari and that these cars(corvettes) are cheap and you can not get a good match unless I fork over another 1,500. I spoke with Mr. Glass the owner he was nice at first until he realized the solution would cost him some time and labor to fix.. then he blew off my 67 year old father off by having promised to fix the car at no cost to us. When my 67 year old father came in to drop the car off at the time Mr. Glass told my Dad to be there he had to deal with Pete who was the original problem that Mr. Glass promised would not be there and that he could deal with Ken...Pete went on his same act telling my Dad that the insurance company was coming into inspect the job and they would determine what work would be done. My Dad asked to speak with Mr. Glass...he was told by pete that he was no where to be found...needless to say Mr. Glass would not return our calls..I ended up just taking my car and going home. Will never go back again

Fun with the sports car look and a beautiful green/blue flake paint (chameleon.)I'm kind of small in stature and it was hard to see out of as the dash is tall and the nose of the car is long. Got some front nose scrapes from trying to turn tight. As soon as i buy this it starts turding on me with expensive repairs. AC compressor $500 and fuel pump failure $700. The fuel pump replacement is a nightmare. Must remove gas tank to get at. Sold it to a Firebird/Transam enthusiast who has much experience repairing them. It's not for the older mom (me) who lives on Social Security.

Absolutely the Best most Reliable car I ever owned

I'm the 2nd owner and I've had it for 11 years. Other than regular oil changes, replaced serpentine belt @ 140,000, replaced a/c compressor, 2 tune ups, 2 sets of tires and brakes twice oh and a head light or marker light once in awhile is all my car has required and I've driven it to South Carolina and back twice (from Vancouver,WA) and numerous trips back & forth to Seattle through the years. My husband wrecked it a few years ago that's the only reason it is being sold.

We purchased our 1998 Firebird from a friend who kept it in a barn in the winter and barely drove it in the summer. Only paid $4,500.00 for it and it is in mint condition. Fully loaded and faster than a raped ape. With this car you get the muscle, class and speed without having to pay a ridiculous price for a name. Especially one you can "blow away" LOL.

This car is awesome! It is my first car and I would not trade it. there is zero room in the back. The T-tops are awesome, but they can get cumbersome and annoying to take out and put back in. But this car is Amazing, if you can, get the Ram Air version. This is a fun and sweet ride.

Love this car! Fun to drive and the 5.7 liter coupled with a six speed tranny is pure throwback American muscle. All the horsepower and torque of higher priced cars is readily available under your right foot! It's really hard to beat this car in the bang for your buck category.

I just got my bird about 3 months ago and I've fallen in love with it. I'm only 16 and this is already my second car. I love driving to school in this baby and watching all the heads turn as I pull in the lot. Going to the mall is now more about getting there than being there. The car is so much fun to drive. Taking corners at 70 mph as if I was only going 30. The feeling of power as the body shakes when revved up. It's muscle all the way. The inside is a little cramped though and the system sucks big time. Don't recommend for a taller person. The passenger seat is REALLY cramped with a small bump in the floor. All in all though it's a blast to drive and is a head turner.

Everything about this car is awesome. My gold WS6 T/A vert gets stared down by everyone in the city. The hood scoops and front end are the baddest of any car out there. The power and sound of this beast let you know that its a real muscle car. With 300hp at the rear wheels, this thing flies. It was disgustingly underrated by GM so that it wouldn't take sales from the vette, but in reality they have the same engine. 350hp would be more realistic. The chrome 17" wheels are the best looking stock rims i've ever seen. With almost 100,000 miles on it, nothing has gone wrong. Doing routine maintenance will hopefully keep this car running strong forever! Long live the Trans Am!

Good horsepower, outruns most stock. Good buy vs any '93 to '02 Camaro, Firebird, and Mustang. Great style over all the others mild performance mods will crush the competition. The last Pontiac will ever make.

Words cannot describe how truly amazing this car is. Having owned many other sport cars in the past I didn't think I was going to get much better. Boy was I wrong! The Formula has an extemely powerful LS1 engine which is the same engine in the Corvette. The engine is incredibly smooth and sounds great. Also, I get 26 miles per gallon highway! I ran 13.48 at 105mph (stock) and I have the conservative 2.73 gears in the rear end. I am not one to insult the inports but those cars (300zx turbo, 3000gt vr4 and rx7 turbo) have nothing on this car when it comes to straight line acceleration plus it handles very well. The only import car I would put up against it is a Supra TT. Drivers race!

Even with the unfair advantage the my wife was supposed to buy a truck for me while I was in Iraq this car has impressed me. Being in siding and window sales I lacked space and often bottomed out the suspension while carrying a lot of samples. It is also difficult to get a child restraint in and out of the back seat. All in all I would have to give my Firebird an excellent rating and would recommend it to anyone without infant(s) and/or sells siding. I've only had it in the shop a couple times for minor repairs that I didn't have time to do myself.

Great Fun

Driving this vehicle is really fun, definitely the funnest I've ever driven. Being able to take corners at 30 mph without feeling like your going to roll the thing is a great ride. Only things I don't like are the traction problems in wet weather and its ride height. I love the fact that its low to the ground, but its a pain to drive worrying about scraping when going through the smallest dips or transition from level surfaces to a steep slope.

Bought the Bird myself when I was sixteen and haven't regretted it one minute. Insurance isn't too bad since it's a V6, but heck, it still wastes a majority of comparable cars (let's see you try that again, Mr. Mustang 'GT'!). Averages about 23-27 MPG, and it doesn't take Premium like TA's need. This is a very solid car, mine is now seven years old and doesn't have a dent or crack or speck of rust or broken interior plastic. Absolutely GORGEOUS car. Only problems are with headlight motor gears, weak passenger power window, and corroded cooling system hoses (beware the black sludge). Rides rough but can turn on a dime at high speeds, and definitely turns heads! Very highly recommended!

Everything you'd want out of an American muscle car. The in-your-face styling, the mean exhaust note, and enough torque to peel the pavement up. This car is so much fun to drive although I wouldn't recommend driving in the wet/snow often cause you will spin the tires constantly. This is a great car to pick up if you love American performance. Get on with the potent LS1, slap on an exhaust, intake, pulley, and cam along with a few suspension mods and you will never want to stop driving.

I am a firebird fan - always will be. My first car was a stock 1996 FIREBIRD V6, and I have loved the car ever since! The smell, the feel, the way people look at you when you cruise past. No other car replicates the feeling you get when you're in a Firebird. I bought my 1998 TRANS-AM CONVERTIBLE about 4 months ago, and absolutely love it! The first time I mashed the pedal to the floor, I couldn't help but smile! There is SOOO much power it is unreal.. even on the freeway, the car can rip up to 100 without missing a beat. It is a fantasticly redesigned exterior that absolutely SCREAMS, "Bad Ass" - this car demands respect!

What an improvement!!!

My previous car was a 96 camaro, and i gotta say WOW this firebird is such an improvment over my last car!! The performance package is awesome!!! Dual-exhaust - body kit - high performance shocks/springs. Everyone mistakes me for a TransAm cuz i almost sound like one (stock!) and look like one. its great except when they race me with their GT mustangs and beat me- hey dude this v6 almost had you!

This is the best car that I have ever owned. Out of all of the usage that I have on this car I have only replaced the alternater after nearly 100000 miles. The car is now 6 years old and it feels the same as it did when I bought it brand new. Every where I go people are always turning their heads and looking at my car. I get compliments on my car all of the time.

The main focus of this car is styling and performance. Merging with traffic on the highway has never been more fun. Simple things like the aftermarket ASP Pulley or a whisper induction lid will give you an extra ten horses a piece for a cheap price. More expensive mods like headers and cam packages I've seen (ranging from 800 - 2,400 dollars) can add anywhere from 70 - 150 ponies to your ride. Of course, suspension upgrades are in order with this much power or you risk twisting your chassis, but even suspension parts should put you back less than 1,000.

Fun, but beware

After 5 yrs and 56K miles I still in love with my bird. This is my 2nd Firebird. The 1st one (1986) was the worst, but this one (1998) is the best car I ever owned (of 14 cars so far). CR use to rate the reliability of this car as the worst, but my experience is very very very different. Except for the regular Lube and New tire installation, this baby has not been touch by a mechanic. Thats right, NO PROBLEM in 5 years. Thats a lot better than my neighbor's Camry.

The car is absolutely beautiful and very fun to drive. I have only had a couple of problems with this car. The running lights have a tendency to burn out very quickly and I have also had problems with the motors in the lights. It does eat up a lot of gas but it's worth it. I have had no major engine or transmission problems with the car yet.

Truely the most bang-for-your-buck performance car you'll find...especially the WS-6 Ram Air! This car has it all; power, style, personality, and heritage. There is NOTHING like getting behind the wheel of a 4th generation Trans Am! This car is not for those who don't want to get noticed, nor the timid. I was surprised to find out it even gets pretty good gas mileage....considering the 5.7 liter V8! I get 19 MPG city. Not the best in wet/snowy/icy conditions so watch the back end. Buy one while you can still find one.

The Pontiac Trans Am offers super overall performance at a low point of entry. This is my third Trans Am and the best of the lot. The LS1 is a great engine, and maybe the best V-8 in the world, save for the LS6. A great value that is now dead. However, the new GTO will lead GM into mid-market greatness.

I bought my standard firebird model in April of 1998. The only problem I've ever had with it was with the gas gauge not working correctly but the dealer fixed it with no problems after that. It has been a very reliable car. I had 2 Pontiac Grand Prixs before this car and I have to say that I have had very good luck with pontiac cars. One of my most favorite features on the Pontiac are the radio controls on the steering wheel.

No matter what you think you know, you have no idea till you drive one. Go test drive one, your adrenaline will be pumping so high that you will write a check in the car on the way back while trying to still drive it. They lose value fast, so get a used one.

Great car for the money! I only paid $16,500 for it. By far the best looking and most fun to drive for that kind of money. I bought this car new in 1998 and have only had it in the shop 3 times for minor work in 36,000 miles (driver's side mirror broke twice and one spark plug wire went bad). The performance of the car has been great. With intake and exhaust mods, it ran the 1/4 mile in 15.3 seconds. I get 28-30 mpg on the highway easy, 18 around town.
