Cons: $$$1700.00 to replace upper and lower coolant gaskets @ 46000mi.
I purchased this vehicle brand new for 26 grand . I have already had major transmission problems that the dealer took care of. Recently it started to leak coolant. I took the vehicle to Lane Pontiac of Melbourne and they informed me it would cost $434.05 to replace coolant intake gasket,and if the bottom gasket was bad it would cost me over $1700.00. I have keep this vehicle in top condition by changing oil,fuel and oil filters at required intervals.I have a two year old vehicle that is not even half way paid off and I have got repair bills out the you know what.I need a dependable vehicle to travel a 100 miles round trip daily I'm seeing now that the Buick and any other GM product might not be what I need. I should mention that I do not have the extended warranty, but strongly agree that GM should build a more dependable ride. Next time I'll go and buy a dependable car from Japan.Another union job lost due to poor workmanship or product Were is America going . How can the little man survive.
