The Pontiac Fiero Was GM's Mid-Engine 1980s Sports Car

The Pontiac Fiero was the 1980s mid-engine sports car from General Motors. It’s an unusual car, and today I’m reviewing a Fiero GT to show you what the Fiero was like. Then I’m going to get it out on the road and drive the Pontiac Fiero to explain how it feels today.

    I had that same color 86 GT. Painted it yellow and black and out a L98 small block in it. Vroom.

    I drove from New Mexico to Alabama in 1991 in an '86 Fiero with me and my buddy's bags strapped to the trunk rack. His car. Great trip and great memories.

    15:19 That button does not make the sound louder, instead it adds "loudness". Which means it lifts both bass and treble. Funny, how this common knowledge has become uncommon. It is another indicator that the populace at large has lost interest in hi-fi.

    Pretty sure that the LOUD button was to add "loudness" which was a common button on 1980's household component stereo receivers, but you didn't see it too much on car stereos. Loudness added extra bass and treble at the same time.

    Loud (or Loudness) is a feature that boosts both high and low frequencies when you're listening at low levels to make low volume listening sound more natural to the human ear. Its effect is inverse to volume level so as you increase the volume it lessens the boost amount eventually flattening the EQ it provides. It's purpose is to compensate for the ear's lack of sensitivity at low volumes to high and low frequencies. Its label means loudness compensated equalization. In this case it has nothing to do with dynamic range. That feature from this era was usually labeled COMP and it'd only be usable when listening to CDs. Most audio systems do this automatically now as manufacturers apply loads of 'tuning' to their in-car audio systems. For whatever reason, GM chose to make it selectable.

    Love your retro reviews. Always loved the Fiero so it's nice to see you review it.

  • I want one of these before the value shoots up, the fastback specifically

    Doug those lines in the tail lights are to give it a smoked appearance as many Pontiac cars had so you didn’t have to buy head/tail light covers. They were cool. You must have been a late 80’s early 2k kid?

    Lug nut covers are mainly to keep the metal lugnuts from rusting. .not so much an aesthetic thing. Not so wierd

    I'm sure it's been mentioned that a sunroof, (removable glass) or a 'T" top was and is readily available on the Fiero.

    it actually wasn't a sportscar, to avoid competition with other GM sportscars it was marketed as a mid-engine 2 seater commuter

    My Nephew and I bought one just like this, but with a 5 speed, about 20 years ago for $300. It had 4 flat tires and wouldn't run. I learned a lot working on that thing. Pretty neat cars really. Typical GM Junk of the era, but packaged into a neat, mid-engined, sports car. The powertrain and rear suspension is essentially that of the front drive GM X platform, but placed at the rear of the car instead of the front. The front suspension and steering was sourced from the Chevette. The 1988 cars did get a lot of suspension changes just in time to be cancelled. We ended up selling the car for way more than we had in it.

    So funny to see Fiero on every panel. In Italien "fiero" means proud… they may have been proud of it to print it all arround

    The Fiero is one of my favorite cars of all times. I had an '88 Formula that I absolutely adored. I will have another one one day.

    sorry, but you just dont know what you are talking about with the Fiero. Your facts are incorrect and sound very condescending for such an innovative futuristic car of its day.. Shameful..

    Hearing him talk about those taillights makes me wonder if he’s ever seen an 87-93 Mustang GT.

    The loud button is a loudness compensator.

    Owned 2 in high school. First was an 88 4 cylinder, 2nd was 86 se v6. Loved both at the time, but they are typical 80s cars. I spun this thing in the rain on the freeway and around a small curve. Short wheelbase, rear engine, rear wheel drive points to lots of crazy spins…. even with low power. Still love the GT style, but I went through many headlight motors because they had a design flaw. Good times.

    GM made shitty cars and still make shitty cars even now. I would never buy one until the day i die. Even their electric car or truck coming up!!!!! I give my money to Tesla any day to support their vision and in return getting a fantastic vehicle.

    GM is a traitor profit seeker no more no less. They acted along with the oil cartels to sabotage their own electric car effort in the 90 when in fact they had a very good electric car back then. Money blinded their eyes and greed took over. The bowed down to the oil cartels so they all can continue to damage our earth with dirty fossil fuel vehicles. Now they turn around after seeing Tesla cleared the hurdle for them in electric car revolution – they jump in with both legs NOW!!!!!

    Don't believe me see for yourself in Utube "Who killed the electric car"!!!!!!!!!

    I've really tried to like this guy but he just comes off as a condescending jackass. Just stay with rating new cars because you obviously can't understand cars & technology that were made before your time. Idiots will always belittle things they don't understand.

    Loud is an EQ curve, you use tgat button when the stereos volume is set low. The EQ curve boosts bass and treble frequencies. Its a pretty standard feature of car stereos. The Pioneer unit I put in my 2019 Frontier has a loud feature…

    God you don't do research…the brake light lovering is a throw back to Pontiac's of the 60's one of the few differences in an equivalent Chevy. Think Camaro vs Firebird rear break lights. You need to do research if your going to review cars before your time

    Doug, gave you a thumbs up for the vid and I follow you because of your content and personal height of 6'4, seeing that I'm an inch taller. IMHO, you should score old school cars by the standards of their time and not to todays technology. I would also like to mention, that you forgot to speak on the leg room given the small stature which is PLENTY. Keep up the good work!

  • Landon Montgomery

    The “Loud” button on the stereo is short for loudness, which is a pre set EQ curve for lower volumes to make it sound louder, all it did was boost the highs and lows

    Fun fact: The gold car that skinny pete drove in Breaking Bad? yeah, that was a pontiac fiero.
