New here, and my first Pontiac

Recommended Posts

Hi all,



I always loved Pontiacs, and while I have driven a few over the years(including a 1980 Trans Am my friend loaned me once in a while), I never actually owned one until now. Our '02 Grand Caravan crapped out last week, and I was very impressed with a 2005 Montana SV6 Extended, So we bought it, and just took possession yesterday. Loving it!

All stock, and it will mostly have to stay that way, but I will have to add a few personalizing touches, here and there.


The performance is not bad and the handling excellent. Might get me in trouble if I don't watch the lead in my toes. :)

Yeah, it's in very good shape. Some wear and light stains on the front seats but otherwise, excellent. Maybe it will get some nice seat covers. While the Caravan was a decent vehicle, and served us well, the Montana makes it seem like a tinker toy, by comparison.

Well, we're not overly far apart then. I have never been to Sarnia, but do get to London fairly often, via the 401, and ocasionally(only if I can't help it. :) ) Toronto.

I suppose one thing I could wish these had had were manual transmission options. I do love a good stick-shift.

Thanks. That one looks pretty good too. I've been to the falls area, once. And yeah, I van it. We live a bit outside of town and haul a lot at a time, plus, my wife is disabled and I have a spine issue, so getting into and out of a van is much easier than a car these days. Even the last actual car we had was a station wagon. An '85 Nissan Maxima, with the 3.0 V6.
