Anybody know where I could go on the net to find out what the city/highway MPG of a 1998 Pontiac Tran Sport is. I have found a deal on one for $3500 with only 46k on it. We currently have a 98 Voyager SE with 77K on it. Only gets 17 mpg city and 20 highway though.

Curious to see if it would actually be an upgrade.

Seriously though, if the Pontiac store were giving out Pontiacs.... I'd probably go buy a KIA. No kidding.

I wouldn't guess there would be a lot of difference. Particularly if you account for sales tax and the other costs of switching cars, it would take a long time to recoup that off a 2 MPG increase in mileage or whatever.

My parents said the other day that KIAs make them feel weird because they think KIA should just stand for "Killed in action" and they shouldn't write that on cars.

They are getting older and say some weird stuff.

Take it from a Pontiac owner, keep the Voyager. Or maybe this might convince you... This week I had my 04 Grand Prix into the dealership for a clanking noise in the front suspension that is very noticeable and easily reproduced. The dealer basically told me they couldn't find anything wrong and they wouldn't just go changing parts. So basically there is a problem with the car and they won't fix it. This after different dealer had tried in two attempts to fix the same problem.

It ain't worth the 1 mpg.

Yeah, I'd keep the Voyager. Other than the iffy transmissions, they're damn good vehicles. I've had 4 Caravan/Voyagers and they've been good to me. One of them has 208,000 miles on it and is still going strong. Pontiac was synonymous with junk in the 90's.
