Pontiac was a GM brand that produced cars and SUVs that often were often sporty versions of the General Motors platform they were based on. Pontiac produced muscle car icons the GTO and the Firebird. Pontiac was also one of the few U.S. automakers to utilize a mid-engine design with the Fiero in the 1980s.
Pontiac offered the Torrent SUV, but never featured a truck line. Many Pontiac dealers also sold GMC trucks and Buick cars to offer a diverse product mix. The Grand Prix sedan and coupe of the 1990s and 2000s sold well as did its follow-up, the Pontiac G6. Pontiac offered the Vibe in the early 2000s, which was based on a Toyota Matrix platform.
Pontiac developed the Solstice in the early 2000s, which as a competitor to the Mazda Miata. Pontiac also imported and rebadged an Australian Holden sedan and offered it for sale in the late 2000s. The brand did not survive GM’s bankruptcy and reorganization and was phased out in 2010.
“We love your site--with the help of your video my 17 year old son and I changed a flat tire on our car this morning. First time he had ever changed a tire and I had forgotten how. Thanks! ”
“THANK YOU! I went to walmart to see if they could replace the head light on my 2004 GMC Envoy. They told me I would have to take it to a dealership because you have to take the front end off to replace the bulb. I went a head and bought the bulb. I came home and found your video and in less than 20 minuets I had the bulb changed and the car put back together! P.S. I am a 30 year old girl! ”
“Thanks....good video on changing light bulb ”
“Thank you very much. It made it a whole lot easier for me to change a simple turn signal bulb. I will be recommending your site to as many people as I can. And I'm sure I will be back. ”
“Awesome site! Very specific and understandable, a real help to those who leave the big stuff to the experts but do try to maintain their cars as much as possible. I grew up working the Chiltons manuals, in which you better have a certain level of systems knowledge of a vehicle before you used the manuals. Good site...nice to have. Thanks ”
