As of 2010, General Motors will no longer produce new Pontiacs, but support for current and future owners won’t be shelved. In the meantime, Pontiac has reassured us that operations will continue to run normally, meaning warranties will be honored just as they were before the announcement.

Other concerns for Pontiac owners include the availability of repair parts as well as resale value. Replacement parts won’t be an issue because GM will continue to make parts for Pontiac cars. In fact, they’re still producing parts for Oldsmobile, which was axed in 2004.  

The resale value of Pontiacs will likely take a hit; the same was true for Oldsmobile cars after the brand was killed. For more information, see our full coverage of Pontiac news at our KickingTires blog.
