2003 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 012006


  • 80,000 miles


Brakes lights and head lights on my 2003 Pontiac Montana have been going out periodically for several years now. After replacing light housing, bulbs and other components, the brake lights continue to blow out. At one point we thought it was because of all of the moisture build up, so after my husband replaced the housing again, he drills holes in the bottom of the headlight covers to help drain moisture. That has seemed to help in one of the lights. The brake lights on the left side continue to go out about a day after every replacement. Most of the interior lighting has gone out as well and the suspension is terrible.

problem #1

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles
A bouncy wobble occurs at speed between 30-55 mph. A lurch occurs after breaking before the vehicle starts to roll. These problems have been stated as being present but no one seems to be able to fix them. We refuse to take the vehicle on the highway as it shakes and bounces. Axle problem, cv joyce problem, suspension have been suggested, but nothing done.
