Just one of many things that this "piece-of-crap" car has had to have fixed. Let's see...@ ~12,000 the oil pan gasket went, @ ~20,000 the transfer/axel something gasket went, ...shortly afterwards, BOTH tie rod ends where replaced, ... recently, BOTH wheel bearings had to be replaced! THIS WEEKEND --> new alternator

ANTICIPATION BEFORE SUMMER IS UP --> BOTH struts will need replacing (they are popping right now!)

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR --> DON'T BUY FROM PONTIAC!!!!!!!!! When I contacted them, they "shook their finger" at me because I had someone other than a Pontiac dealership do the work I (since the work was NOT under warranty). Basically, they feel as though my troubles with this car "are customer maintenance items."
