96 horsepower is not safe to drive

The performance is extremely lacking. The car would function better in flat warm climates. Don't purchase this vehicle if you live in snowy areas, or the mountains. Cause chances are it will die on you in nine months. The performance is extremely lagging, its dangerous for me to even drive on the highway. While driving on the highway, it decided to half stall. The car was still going, but it seemed as if the fuel wasn't reaching the engine, like it was jammed. If in the event that it stalls, take you foot off the gas for five seconds, then floor it to regain the proper speed. The car's lagging can be explained by the 96 horsepower. Thats right 96 horsepower. For those of use that live in the mountainous regions that is not enough. So in the end you are just better off just getting another car such as a buick that has significantly more horsepower especially if you want to get around safely. This is definately one embrassment that pontiac should hope to forget, as well as the azteck.
