2005 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

Creak, pop, clunk noise coming from the front of the vehicle. The noise is noticeable during slow parking lot maneuvers, and is mostly evident in a completely stopped condition when turning the steering wheel left and right. I spend money trying to get my car fit, and no one could find what the problem was.

2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 automatic sliding door opens while driving, bad sensor and broke cable was replaced. The consumer also stated the engine failed, which ultimately led to an engine replacement. The vehicle began shaking and misfiring. A bad plug and the stabilizing bar links were replaced. The undercarriage was cracked which was causing a loud knocking and thumping sound under the vehicle. The consumer also had the seats replaced with an after market leather kit because stains had formed on the seats due to moisture. The consumer later discovered a recall had been issued because the after market kit could cause the passenger sensing system to malfunction if the passenger sensing system malfunctions, the front air bag on the passenger side may be disabled when it should be enabled, or enabled when it should be disabled. The consumer was informed his vehicle was not included in the recall
