Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
It all depends on if you can afford another lease and if you want to get rid of the vehicle.If the Pontiac has low miles and is in great shape if it were me I would change out the oil,fuel filter,air up the tires,check the coolant and other fluid levels and check for any leaks and repair any small issues found.If any major issues are found then you would want to determine if you want to sell the vehicle or repair it from there but if they are minor issues then myself I would repair it to drive the vehicle to save on paying for a lease model.
If you do get rid of it I would think you could get more then $500 on craigslist if it is in good condition.You might even get $1000 which is more then what charity can offer on a tax break but if a tax break is more important then I would go with the tax break myself.

The problem i am facing now is the registeration, do i have to pay a penalty, as the registration is incomplete. how to drive to a mechanic shop or a smog check shop to fix the issue?
You will have a penalty but usually from what I have seen is less then $50.Once it is registered then you can take it to a repair facility to have it diagnosed and repaired then they can smog it there and you can then have it smoged to pass for where you live.
Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here.
