Cool Ideas on How You Can Customize Your Pontiac Montana
The Pontiac Montana is a crossover sport van and has a sportier appearance than other GM minivans and can hold up to eight passengers. It is known to ride comfortably, handles capably, and is at least on par with most of its rivals, if not better than them. Performance is a strong point of the Pontiac Montana; it is energetic when starting and can pass and merge effectively despite its size. However, because there hasn\'t been a new production for this model since 2005, the Montana looks a bit dated when viewed alongside other vehicles. If you still have this trusty van but want to personalize it a bit, here are some ideas on how to do it.
Aftermarket car seats
You don\'t have to stick to the same seats your Pontiac Montana came with from the dealer. You should not bear with tacky seat covers to cover up the tears and stains, either. Give your van a cool, new feel by installing aftermarket seats, perhaps ones that are made of leather. It is a great way to add value to your vehicle if you are planning to sell it, or simply provide more pleasure and comfort to your driving experience. When shopping for a set, you will find a lot of options available. Some are automatic, while others are fixed. Some are also made to fit in your van while others do not, though you could still work with them and adapt them to your vehicle.
You can change the character of your Pontiac Montana simply by modifying the suspension. Not only that, but by lowering the suspension, your van can get better aerodynamics since there\'s les air going underneath the vehicle. Its traction and handling also improves traction and handling, as having a low vehicle can increase the tires\' grip on the road. Tuning the suspension also reduces your van\'s rollover risk, and overall you can experience greater comfort while driving. However, you need to be careful about your van bottoming out, as lowered suspensions mean that your vehicle hits the road more easily when it bounces. This makes speed bumps and uneven roads problematic.
Nothing screams personalized more than a set of good aftermarket wheels. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it can also help reduce weight, thereby improving your Pontiac Montana\'s handling. When looking at aftermarket wheels for your van, make sure that the designs accentuate the vehicle and do not look tacky. You should also go for ones that are made of a lightweight aluminum alloy. These wheels are stronger, look better, and are high quality, so you don\'t have to worry about it oxidizing easily. Alloy wheels can also reduce tire wear, deflection, and rollover. You might also notice an improvement in brake cooling since aluminum is an efficient heat conductor. However, if you don\'t have the budget for alloy wheels, you can just get some wheel covers to update the stock wheels your van already has. Don\'t bother getting aftermarket steel wheels, as these are just the same as your vehicle\'s stock and won\'t add much value.
