Bought this van in 2005. I have the one built in Canada. I use this car on a daily basis and drive it 5 hours a week on the highway. I have not had any major issues with this fantastic vehicle. Issues in 5 years: replaced tires 4 times in 8 years the engine icon lights turns on occasionally, but after check up everything is alright. Sometimes the front a/c vent stops working for a couple of minutes and automatically starts again. I had never owned vehicle for this many years. I am a satisfied customer.

I bought my 2005 Montana used 4 years ago and actually loved it during that time, but in the last 2 months, I've put over $4000 into it in repairs which seem neverending. Overheating was the initial problem and I've had coolant leaks fixed, a new water pump and thermostat put on. The problem continued and I've ended up with a leaking head gasket, then the battery died and now it has electrical problems. Door locks have never worked properly, the temp gauge sticks so I don't even know anymore if it is overheating. I love it for comfort and roominess but I've lost all faith in it, and I only have 72k miles on it and drive it gently. I'll be trading it in as soon as I can get to a dealer.

Next one is a Toyota

I have worked in a g. M. Dealership as a technician for 25 years (last 18 @ a Pontiac dealership) I can honestly say, I hate this van. Fabric on seats is horrible, stains if you look at it, Cruise control I swear will blow the engine on hills, red lines the r. P. M's (good one general motors) rattle city, suspension is sloppy, noisy, a. W. D (all wheel drive) is disabled if their is an antilock brake issue and yes the ABS has failed. Several times. Nothing better than needing the all wheel drive and have the a. B. S. Light on, might as well have a pedal bike. In short, I can honestly say Pontiac blew it with this vehicle, and they know it. I no longer work at a g. M. Dealership, and our next van will be Toyota

This is crap from a lemon!

We bought it with 50,000 km on it and in the first month the brakes had to be done and the heater fan went. Very uncomfortable if your over 6'. Cloth seats stain badly, nice whistle sound at freeway speed, 20,000 km later brakes are gone again, tranny hesitates, slider doors don't close properly, center fold up consul was thrown out the first day, ext. trim falling off, electronics malfunctioning on a regular basis.

I clearly made a bad choice by purchasing this vehicle (it happens). This has been in the shop more times than I care to count (tires, electrical, dvd player, both stabalizer bars, radio quit), the problems are endless and it only had 40,000 miles on it. Cant wait to see whats to come ! At least they dont make it anymore, and spare someone else the frustrations.

This is the last of the old-style Montanas, sold in Canada as a 2005 model. I was attracted to the low price (used) - half the cost of an Odyssey or Sienna. I had also heard the bad head gasket had been solved. Ours had about 42,000 miles on it when we bought it. It has performed well over the past year, though we had to replace a bad front wheel bearing, the rubber door gaskets came loose and the wind stretched the driver's door hinges (fixed at our local college). Recently replaced the crap General tires with Michelins and vastly improved the ride and noise; gas mileage is better too. The one thing we can't address are the rattles in the sliding doors. Overall, great value in a used van.

From the second day I purchased this vehicle, we have had nothing but problems. Our first year alone it was serviced 14 times. I wont even start to describe all the problems. From bumper to bumper , we have had problems. Poorest handling, poorest acceleration, when you hit a bump the doors feel like they are going to fall off. We are on our 3rd set of tires, we cannot keep an alignment on it. Unfortunately for us, we have tried to trade for another mini van of better quality, most car dealers will not accept them on trades and if they do , my kids bicycle is worth more than the van.

Very disappointing. We have bought only GM for 20 years. Automatic sliding doors open while driving and won't latch. Mystery to dealer and GM. They could care less this is a serious safety issue. We are stuck having to go in and have the doors fixed once every few months. GM customer service tells us it is fixed each time so what the heck do we want from them?? We are so unreasonable to want a car that works Fabric inside stains easily despite many coats from the dealer of Scotch-Guard. Cruise control accelerates by red-lining RPM's causing loss of control of the vehicle. JD Powers gives this van its worst ratings across the board. Hello Toyota - GM doesn't care if they lose a customer.

The good news is the Montana is a well designed minivan that eats up the miles comfortably and returns good gas mileage. The bad news is the van is built with cheap plastic inside that readily falls apart. The rear hatch pull strap broke in my wife's hand after only a few months. The transmission hesitates a little and I fear it will break down sooner than later. Wind caught the driver's door last week and yanked it hard against the hinges (fully open) and bent the top hinge. Talk about cheaply made! Now the door whistles on the highway. Looking for a good bodyshop that can fix it properly. These vans are very cheaply made!

Traded '02 Montana, first day knew I had made big mistake. Alternator, air conditioning, CD player, OnStar, side doors, first year 14 times in for service. Will never purchase another GM product. This vehicle is unsafe. Unfortunately, it is worth nothing. Anyone that does not agree with this does not realize the poor quality of this vehicle. On my third set of tires, cannot keep an alignment on it. Also just replaced brakes for the third time. I am not a reckless driver. Car dealers will not even accept these vehicles on trade in, will have to give it away. Buy a Toyota, I know I will be from now on.

We enjoy the Montana SV6. We put on a lot of miles (now 117,000 miles) each year and live in a rural area of Quebec where the winters are harsh and the snow is deep. I have the extended version and have found that it has good control on the road year round. A few problems, which were limited in scope and not serious. Consisted of the following: slight rattle in dash - easily fixed, rear windshield wiper motor has given up - will need to be replaced, paint delamination next to rear center taillight - dealer will fix. I have worked inside an Asian Automotive manufacturing plant and find the quality here relatively close but the value is in the price - probably a third cheap

I read the other reviews about the wind noise, yes that was bothersome, but by using a little silicone down the drivers side rubber weather strip, problem solved. I do though have a leakage of some kind on the drivers side on the inside, my floor mate is soaked and I cannot figure where the dampness is coming from, unless the A/C line to the rear is under the flooring? I have worn a hole in the flooring from the foot action while driving. I do drive alot and it has helped on gas expense. Last I have some sort of electrical problem with the temp gauge. At times after drive for a bit and then shutting down, the gauge will max out. I have to turn the ignition switch back and forth rapidly.

Purchased new at dealer in Fall 2004. Bad electricals from the start (flickering head lights & dash lights) as well as annoying wind noise at 60 mph+. Dealer has no clue as to fixes. Electrical wiring short occurred at 3.5 years and 106,000 miles involving main electrical circuit. Dealer charges $2,500 to fix!! This has not been a good vehicle given the fact that the van is worth about $6,000. GM deserves what they get in the world of cars; they are losing market share for a reason. Others make better cares and treat their customers slightly better! I will never buy from this dealer or GM again!

I have had the van for little over a year. Bought new. Been in to dealership 3 times for brake work. Still squeaking. Power sliding door alarm goes off for no reason when driving, have to pull over and reclose. Gas gauge not working properly. Also, no room for legs in 2nd row. Took seats out and its wonderful. Dealership nor I could find a plug in adapter. Not as comfortable as old Venture van. Guess it doesnt matter, GM is not making minivans any longer.

We leased this SUV/minivan in June 2005. It is a great family road trip car with plenty of pick-up to pass on the highway. We are getting another vehicle as the use of space is not good for our family. With three kids, half the third row has to be up and this decreases storage. We get 18 MPG overall

This is a follow up to our SV6 purchase in July 2005. The car does not always start - dealer found no problem with this - still happening. Tires are worn after a year - seems you are to look inside the door and not read the tires for the correct pressure. The radio switches channels without catching all of the stations on it's own. Brakes are worn and noisy. The air had to be recharged - was not keeping the inside cooled down.

I have had to alternators installed, both front stabilizer bars installed, power rear window bracket installed, does not have a lot of power to get onto the freeways. The air conditioning does not work all the time, it cuts in and out ( more out than in ) in traffic, better to open the windows. I have been a GM buyer for a long time but after this one I think I will change.

We've now had this van for a full year. Generally, we're still quite satisfied with the van, its comfort and quality. The leather has held up well, the DVD player is more popular than ever and the AC blows like a January blizzard. However (oops, there's that word...) a few minor things have cropped up in the past year including a powered door that stopped working, brake trouble (not serious )a loose trim piece covering the sliding doors' track and a radio that switches stations w/o warning (only happens on one certain frequency ...huh?) All fixed quickly and cheerfully and under warranty, but should these have happened in the first place?

Purchased 1 yr old with 25K miles. Put 20K on it during ownership. Tons of room, with a comfortable-for-adults, fold-flat third row. Fits 5 adult passengers with 2nd row bench seating and 6+ full-sized luggage pieces with third row folded. Much storage. Engine was powerful to begin with, but definitely had lost noticeable "punch" after one year. CD stereo radio sound was adequate but not great. Questionable build quality created worrisome driving @ 42K miles with a loud, metallic "clanking" sound when riding over bumps (dealer attempted to fix, but sound resurfaced within 5K); "ghost" power door that closed on command but opened by itself when parked; "chirping" noises when I turned right.

Our experience was good until at 11,000 miles an awful harmonic sound began occuring at highway speeds of 65-75 mph. Dealer could not locate it and we all directed it to the replacement of the passenger side headlamp but to no avail. After 3 visits to dealer,and 3000 miles, it was discovered that noise "probably" taking place in driver's side door as we placed a handkerchief on the weatherstrip by the mirror and it ceased completely for 1500 miles. But the sound is attempting to return but not as painful as before. Plastic door trim on each side appears loose and causes concerns of faulty installation.We miss the lights that stay on on our dodge caravan as well as the door locked sound

It's been great...

We just purchased our montana with 29,000 miles. it is still under warranty but we also bought the full warranty just in case so we do not have out of pocket expenses down the road. We had a 12 screen dvd player installed for the kids as an after market feature. it is awesome. we love it so far. I did notice a whistling type sound coming from the windsheild when going over 50....anyone else had that?

Bought the new SV6 due to the expanding family. Looked at others but none except ford/mercury included the expanded features for a reasonable price. While I like the apperance and the creature comforts of the SV6, and the drive is typical of a minivan thats all there is to be happy or content with. My vehicle has been in the shop 4 times over the first 3 months for various reasons including a faulty aligned door, replacement of a rear sliding door motor, replacement of a door handle, replacement of body molding, steering well casing replacement, windshield stripping replacement, and a dead battery. Highway noise (wind) on this vehicle is terrible. Recommend pay extra $ for better quality

Previous vehicle was a 96 Trans Sport with same 3.4 liter v-6. Got 260,000 miles out of that without any major mechanical problems, it paid for itself! This van is on the same path. Already, there is 32,100 on it and the only problem was a TSB for the throttle body. Didn't cause van to run poorly, it just made a whistling sound on light acceleration. Dealer fixed though under warranty, and that's it. Great comfort, very good acceleration, average fuel econ. (20 mpg. w/ mixed hwy./city driving), and great dependability. I would not be afraid to take this vehicle anywhere on a trip. I look forward to any years of "Driving Excitement" with this Pontiac!

We purchased this van the day before we left on an 1100 mile vacation. That is always the making of a disaster. However, against our judgments we did it anyway and were not disappointed. It performed well during our trip and every since. The DVD player was nice for the kids and the sanity of my wife and I. The restyling of the front end has greatly improved the looks of the Montana's.

Loved the van when we first bought it, but several things have happened since then. The transmission has slipped either going from park to drive or taking off from a stoplight/stopsign. Almost all of the decals have fallen off on the rear hatch. The battery also quit on us. Now I feel we are stuck until we get caught up payment wise to merit selling or trading in on another vehicle.

Un-reliable and Un-Safe!

We loved the traction control, and the load leveling system at first. In Dec., everything went wrong! load leveling system stopped working in awkward stance and it was more up in the back then the front. dealer charged us $863.00 for that to be fixed. Then the headgasket went and the emergency brake failed when parked. After we got all of that fixed, an accident ouccured in January. We were on the NYS Thruway and we were going on a trip. Then we were hit in the back of the minivan by a SUV and then we slammed into the pick-up truck in front of the van and intruded into my wife and I and we were sent to the hospital, and my wife was in a coma for 4 months. Will never buy a GM again!

I traded in my '99 Suburban, against my wife's wishes(!) because it was costing too much to operate. The SV6 was the perfect replacment. We took the 1SA package, because I could not pass up the deal. The dealer had loaded units available, but I really didn't all the extra items. I only wish that every option didn't come in a package. It would be nice to have rear window defroster without having to spend $2200 for everything else that come with it!

The front driver/passenger have a fairly good ride Transmission is smooth with plenty of motor power. Misleading ads when it comes to available storage space, compared to the previous models. This model is drifting away from its true mission of what a mini van should stand for. It was poorly conceived to carry baggage with the seats folded. There is a need to increase the size door pockets to storage. This model has too much for for movie goers, with 4 oversized hardplastic headset holders poorly located for passager's own comfort, 2 pop-corn table with plenty of pop holders. The passager's second row of seat has a lot to be desired with restricted leg room. They did away with fog lights

The SV6 is a very stylish fun to drive vehicle. The kids love the dvd system, and all the captain chairs and soundsystem. The low step in height is great. Front visiblity is perfect while not so in the rear(head rests get in the way) The power rear doors are great. The seats are super comfortable much more so than others we test drove.( My husband & I test drove them all I bet). We didn't mind them not being stow and gow as they were so much more comfortable. The only complaint is maybe power when on the highway fully loaded with people & luggage felt a little sluggish but other than that perfect.

I rented the SV6 for our Grand Canyon vacation this year. With 2 12 yrs olds, a 17 yr old and 2 adults traveling together - we loved it. Plenty of room and everyone had excellent views while traveling. We were impressed enough to trade in my 2000 Boneville for a 2005 SV6. For me at 5'3" the SV6 in much more confortable to drive than my Bonneville had been.I commute 65 miles roundtrip each week day and after driving the SV6 for two weeks - I am very pleased with it.After 2 Bonnevilles and a Grand Am this is my favorite Pontiac yet.It doesn't feel like a minivan at all - sure doesn't look like one either.

When I saw the employee pricing, I decided to trade my 03 Montana for a 05, but I could not find one that I wanted. Looked at the SV6, thought about it and got a loaded one. 4 weeks later it was on the road for a 4 week vacation in NE. 3 bikes on top, rear seats down, loaded to the gills. What a joy. DVD and the ability to multitask the sound system was great. Satellite radio! Where was it when I was driving cross county in 1980. Seems to be a little less elbow room in the front, but the change in the interior of the doors makes up for it. Plenty of storage space, like the removable storage compartment. Good for putting things away when parking in the city.

It's A great Van!

I shopped around for a few months looking for a van and this was the best layout and design for our family that i found. The options were exactly what we needed and the fit and finish were excellent. The van is quiet and a lot of fun to drive. The braking is noticably better than other vans.

Having owned a '96 Voyager previously, we were VERY pleased with our Montana. The quality and materials are first rate and the build appears to be solid. We had to get the chrome wheels for $650 (pricey!)and weren't allowed to exchange them for cheaper alloys due to the employee discount rules. The ride is butter smooth and the power adequate. With the employee discount, we feel that we received an excellent value for the money. A reccommended vehicle!

The drive was very quiet, much quieter than Chrysler products and much less body roll than either the Honda or the Toyota vans. Acceleration was reasonable, if not peppy, it again was better than other "top reviewed" vans. The power doors aren't hard to close and the remote button is awesome. Handlimg was all I would have expected and the braking was excellent. Much better than the priginal Montana and better than the Chrysler product we traded in. Apparently the four wheel disk brakes function much better than the drums in the rear of other vans. This van is for my wife and she loves it. I'd say GM hit a homerun with this vehicle.

Excellent acceleration beyond what the horsepower rating says. Maybe it's due to the torque. Handling is great too. No problems with reliability or anything else. Mileage is super compared to the performance too. I got 26 mpg with 4 adult passengers with luggage on a long trip, and 27.5 mpg on a solo trip when I set cruise control at 60 mph.

I had a 99 Montana. Loved it. But when the lease was up, I traded it for a Rendezvous. Big mistake. It was a long 3 years! I've had my 2005 SV6 since March 1st. It's wonderful. It rides better, handles better, has fewer blind spots, than the Buick. I'm so glad I came back to Pontiac.

Thank You so much for making this van. Not only is it fun to drive, but the looks that this van gets and all the awes! I have had the van for almost a month now and can't find anything wrong, I drive a lot and back roads that wind the van handles very well and seems to form to the road. The traction control is another great feature the other day I found it to be very handy and I didn't have to kick it in, in just kicked in on its own. I have to depend on a dependable ride and I know that i've found it. Again thank you for such a great Van. PS: The leather interior is really sharp and all the extra features are wonderful.

We traded in our Aztec for a nicely equipped Montana SV6 with 1SB package. The standard OnStar is not only a nice feature, but helped to lower my auto insurance because it is considered an anti-theft device. The optional rear parking assist, optional power sliding doors, and standard DVD player help to keep us all happy and our 18 month old content). While some might find the 200 horses lacking, I find it to be plenty after driving the 185 hp Aztec for 3 years. I miss the heads up display and fog lights from the Aztec, but otherwise am very happy with the purchase. The body styling is MUCH more appealing than the OLD Montana too.

Front and side air bags provides excellent safety with light to extremely fast opening depending on type accident. Excellent cargo space. interior lighting for front and rear passengers excellent. Rear heat and air plus headset jacks for passengers. Rear heat and air controled from the drivers area and the rear passenger area. Factory fog lighs excellent assistance in bad weather as well as just night driving. Rear windshield wiper and front wipers poor design for snow and ice area of residence. Freeze and hard to thaw.

Wanted a vehicle that would allow some movement in the vehicle while traveling. This one has auto outlets as well as a 110 outlet that can be used for a small plug in fridge. When I need to use the 4 cup coffee pot or microwave I just unplug the fridge for a few minutes and use the micro to pop some popcorn or what ever.. It also has a built in pump for pumping up what ever is needed. Last week I had a flat from a slug I picked up. Instead of having to change the flat tire I just got out the hose for the pump , blew up the tire and drove to the station for repair. Excellent handling and roadability.

Cold --- even in a mild climate, you freeze if the temp gets below 10. Windows frost over at any temp below 40, defrost doesn't help. Why RED dash display?? We've known since 1970 when watches with red led displays came out... YOU CAN'T SEE RED LED DISPLAYS IN SUNLIGHT!.... RED DISPLAY IS USELESS IN SUN LIGHT. Seats do not fold out of the way. Front windshield needs to be made thicker, first hit with a peace of flying gravel, good buy window. Headgasket leaks, wheel bearing out at 80000 miles. I would expect this from a CHRYSLER product. And not last or least.... what it the engine thermostat doing imbeeded so far down in the engine it takes 3 hours repair time and a $250.00 bill to replace it?

The price is very affordable, the insurance is great also. It's great on gas. My children love it, my 3 year old gets in and out herself, the power slider door is wonderful when dropping off or picking up at school, no need to get out anymore. I love driving it.. it sure beats the suv I used to drive... so take it for a test drive... just make sure you get a sales persons that's right for you, and take the time and check out the dealership first.. ask around if anyone has dealt with that dealership.

The 2003 Pontiac Montana Van (long version) is a powerful V6 family vehicle. It has a very pleasing, sporty stylish exterior with all around rocker panel protection, aerodynamic body design, and heavy duty built under body. It has one of the highest gas milage ratings of all the minivans, and lives up to the rating on and off the highway. The interior design with captain chairs second row and split bench in rear is modestly roomy and functional design. The rear seat fold down and easily removable seating is a plus in design capability. There are no mechanical, electical or interior vices after 3 years of usage. The only negative aspect is the uncomfortablness of the front captain seats.

I knew as soon as I saw this coming attraction that I would have to hold off purchasing a new minivan until it arrived. I bought a Montana in 98 and knew that I didn't want another minivan unless it was another Montana. I was not disappointed by the look and style - It's the only truly sporty minivan as far as I'm concerned. I didn't plan on buying leather this time but I felt the cloth interior just looked too cheap. It seems to handle fine but even though the engine is 3.5 instead of 3.4, I'm not convinced it performs better than my old one. There are little things I miss such as a light in the glove compartment, aux pwr outlet up front, dash space, reclining rear seats, see below

To top it off all the repair bills I had on the other one was oil changes no major repairs that is reliability. Thanks Pontiac for making such a great car!
