My wife bought it brand new in 2007. I inherited it when she wanted a new car this time last year.
In the first month of me driving it I had to have the camshaft, camshaft position sensor, and windshield wiper module replaced. Luckily, the camshaft and whatnot was under warranty so no charge there but the wipe module came out of my pocket.
Within 3 months of driving it one of the rear window defrost contacts popped off due to poor design (the plastic that covers the frame/shell on the sides of the window rubs on the defrost contacts). That still hasn't been fixed because the dealership said the entire window would have to be replaced due to the fact that the contacts are stamped onto the glass. (and yes, I tried fixing it myself. I'm damn good with a soldering iron but getting that piece back on there is impossible.. even epoxy didn't work).
Those problems weren't my fault but within the last 3 months I've replaced the front windshield, the passenger side windshield wiper arm, the battery, and now the lights behind the heating controls have gone out.
So, crappy workmanship coupled with a run of bad luck has put a sour taste in my mouth for pontiac. I'm glad they won't be making any more of them - I'm done with GM after this one.
