    Pros: room
    Cons: cost

    Summary: We have a 1998 transport and we absolutely love it. We have had almost a year and a half and have had little problems with it. It had to have a new power window motor put in and a new radio, but it was covered under warranty. The pontiac service is ... read more

    Pros: Planned room and seating are very functional. Not many vans can seat 8.
    Cons: Cheap interior parts. Everything breaks.

    Summary: We were quite happy with the TransSport when we purchased it new, in 1998. We liked the flexibility of folding and removable seats; two side doors. We also liked the low financing, and the family discount that GM offers. We liked the roof rack, and ... read more

    Pros: Hauls lots of stuff. Seats comfy enough for long rides, spills wipe up easily.
    Cons: The tint is too dark, making it hard to back up at night.

    Summary: Been driving our 1998 Pontiac TransSport for about a year now and could not be happier with it. We bought ours with all of the options (leather, traction control, load leveling) and have been very happy with it. It had about 60k miles on it when we ... read more

    Pros: A smooth ride.
    Cons: A/C system.

    Summary: I'm the type of person, who just needed to buy a new/used vehicle. As we all know, we first begin by doing some research followed by the features and options of the vehicle. When I decided to buy, I went to look at the showroom display they were ... read more

    Pros: This van has good looks and is very functional to meet passenger and cargo needs.
    Cons: Poor engineering

    Summary: Hey, this van looks pretty good (as far as a van goes) and meets a family's needs. Reliability problems have soured my experience with the Trans Sport. With 28K miles the transmission (rebuilt) and power steering have been replaced, 3 leaking ... read more

    Pros: Features
    Cons: they don't always work

    Summary: I bought this vehicle to haul 5 kids around. I love the cosmetics of the vehicle as well as the features. I hate the small problems that seem to multiply with this vehicle. I only have 29,000 miles on this vehicle and already I have had to replace the ... read more

    Pros: Style, Dual Sliding Doors, Comfortable
    Cons: Seats are not user friendly for small hands

    Summary: Averaging just over 3500 miles a month for the last 3 years, my Pontiac minivan has pulled its duty as a family vehicle. The extended van has enough room for my family of five and their constant flow of friends to accomodate with comfort that you would ... read more

    Pros: comfortable, handles well, and front wheel drive
    Cons: I haven't seen one yet

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Front Wheel Drive, 2 Sliding Doors, Removable Seats
    Cons: Parts are hard to get, minor bugs to work out

    Summary: The Pontiac Trans Sport Van is somewhat of a good/bad vehicle. One good thing is that it has two rear sliding doors. It also has front wheel drive, and where I live front wheel drive is a life saver in the snow and ice. The removable rear seats are ... read more

    Pros: Roomy, powerful, comfortable.
    Cons: Cost, slow defroster

    Summary: I purchased my 1998 Trans Sport in June of 1999, after test driving a 1997 Montana. I bought this model because it has the two back sliding doors. That was the one thing Hubby said he wanted after driving the '97 Montana with just the one door in the ... read more
