Pros

durability and handling

Cons

lack of common options

Completely Worth It — my grand prix was always fun to drive and i felt confident when driving it, it had a very spirited v6 and the car was very cheap to maintain i really liked the full length tail lights and front light-bar but really wanted traditional fog lights

Pros

This was the 1988 *car of the year* award winner, still looks good in '91 even with the addition of the plastic addons, the DOHC engine made the car more enthusiastic to drive but one paid for it at the pump, the DOHC also suffered from little bottom end torque only because the head & cams profile was tuned to upper RPM performance. The FE3 suspension on the upscale models made the car handle well, but there's always room for improvement.

Cons

Rear brakes were always a problem for the W body cars, only because they were constantly neglected.
Timing belt used on the DOHC was a intense item to replace, when the engine first arrived on the scene GM specifically instructed their shops *pull the engine* and replace it when a problem arose instead of diving into it to attempt a repair.
The location of the alternator mounted to the DOHC made replacing it major effort, not something for the faint of heart or without the proper tools to do so.

Nice Sporty Design, The Coupe Is Not A Family Car, Reasonably Reliable Vehicle. — The 4th year for the W body platform, gone were the modular front headlights on the coupe models, being replaced by miniquads, the flanks got a new *boy racer* plastic cladding added to them, first year for the GTP & the GT. The electrics were prone to problems if one had the electric lumbar seats and the airbags for the headrest would often leak & deflate, the seats themselves are a blessing for long distance drives, one can set then to whatever one needs to get comfortable in them, the headlights leave something to be desired (mini quads), they just don't throw a good beam for viewing at night, the heater tubing/hose routing caused the supply side to rot because of it's location to the passenger side front wheel and the mud & debris thrown up on it. The cars that were equipped with the power moonroof are definitely a *want list* feature. Overall I like the model, no car is perfect, I always will despite it's shortcomings.

Pros

They were very nice cars. The 8-way leather seats are very comfy. Once you have HUD you can't go back.

Cons

The 3.4 DOHC needs to be loved or it will bite you.   Had some issues with the back drivers side caliper. Check the rear suspension links, the mounts can rust causing allignment issues.

Gtp -- Nice Car For Cruzing Around. — The power of the 3.4 DOHC was decent, not the fastest car out there but what you loose in power it makes up for in handling. The independent suspension with disc brakes at all four corners helps the car carve. I really liked the HUD (Heads up Display) on these cars. This car got about 32 mpg average. (My other 3.4's are lower at around 26 mpg.) Change the oil on this motor often and it will be good.

91 Grand Prix 3.4l 5 Speed — I picked this up because it is a very rare factory 5 speed car... It has the 3.4L DOHC in it... There are a couple minor things i need to fix but that is expected on a 17 year old car... I have many plans for the future with it. It is currently red but will later be painted black.
