Fun To Drive — This car is fun to drive. You really notice the kick when you punch the accelerator. Car handles the corners good as well. The confort inside is good but it does make a few rattles and squeaks. The supercharger is fairly loud as well. Sound system is great and can really pump the bass. Recent problems with it have been the engine oil gasket ($800), throttle control, ($205 including towing 1.5 miles) and the coolant sensor (getting fixed on Wednesday). At 116,000 miles I would expect probably all but the oil gasket. That was a design flaw in GMs design.

Great Sports Car If You Need To Haul 5 People And Have A Limited Budget. — I loved everything about this car, from the nice roar of the exhaust to the black leather interior. It was faster than a Mustang GT in every race you could put it up to while getting better gas mileage. Amazing car!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

1999 Gtp Sedan — Where to get started? Well... It's pretty quick... not a supercar, but it does what i want it to do... The build quality isnt the best in the world, but it doesnt necassarily break down every second. In my oppinion its pretty good looking and its going to look even better after paint this week. All in all its just a great car. Fun to drive, Looks good, pretty quick, good gas milage. You cant go wrong.

Supercharged....nuff Said — The performance speaks for itself in the word supercharged. With 240 horsepower and a performance shift option, this car SCREAMS down the road. The transmission is the 4T65e and ive never had a problem with it. The braking is good but pontiac needs to figure out the brake dust issue (on all pontiacs not just mine). The handling is great. The build quality is great. I built it and so far (knock on wood) nothing major has happened to the car. The exterior is very aggressive. My car has the factory 40th anniversary Ram Air hood on it. The interior is amazing. All leather with power and heated drivers seat, floor shift, heads up display, and a great stereo. The stereo is completely factory with 8 speaker Bose system with a factory amp in the trunk. The cost of ownership isnt that bad. Its getting about 26.4 mpg with the supercharger belt off. Yes the belt is off. My dad said not a chance. Plus I get to run Regular gas in my car. Maintenance is easy and affordable as well. Fun? Um yeah this car is a blast.

Sporty Mid Sized Car — I love the style of the older Grand Prix GTP, great car to drive, lots of power, feels like she just hugs the road. Has 169,999 miles and I would not be concerned about driving her anywhere. very dependable. well took care of, lots of tread on tires, every oil change they are rotated, no rips or tears on leather seats.

Pros

My Grand Prix GT is fast, but also pretty good on gas. It's a sleek black 2 door, with everything. Runs well, handles great, plenty of room.

Cons

The only thing that I don't care for is the position of the front cupholders. If I have a tall drink in them, it gets in my way when I use the shifter.

Just An Awesome Looking Car With A Lot Of Power. — I'm very pleased with my Grand Prix GT, so far it's been a pleasure to drive, and own. The only recent thing that kind of stranded me, was the starter went out, and it wouldn't start. I had to have it towed back to my house from where I work. Not very far, so the tow bill wasn't bad. We went and bought a new starter, and my son installed it. It started right up, and so far hasn't failed me.

The Money Pit — Stylish sedan. Fast and easy to handle and drive. Very quiet interior but made of hard cheap plastics. Huge expenses for repair which were often. Poor transmission which was replaced two time in two years. Poor gas mileage. Horrible build quality!

Pros

Brisk acceleration (1/4 mile - 14.97 @ 90 mph) only took it to an NHRA strip once and had a good time.

Cons

Allows a bit too much road noise.

Would Buy It Again. — The car is quite impressive in acceleration, good braking qualities and corners rather well. The overall build quality is good. It has required brake repair on two occasions (not bad for 14 years old) and the wiring harness was replaced, under warranty, at 27,000 miles. A few squeaks but certainly not bad. The cars appearance remains great. On road trips the GTP has gotten 29 miles per gallon several times, while cruising at 65 mph. Has had frequent oil changes, every 2,500 miles and 3 sets of tires. The car actually remains fun to drive and I consider it my great friend!

Pros

Good steering and brakes and overall handling. Strong engine for 192,000 miles on it. Good beginner car for a kid- has good looks and style. Great Bose sound system- (factory.)

Cons

Other than the issue I am having right now, nothing that I can think of.

Good Beginner Car For A Kid. — I grew up in a GM family, this is the fourth Grand Prix we've had since 1963. I have always loved them- they have always been good cars. On this one- I bought this for my daughter's 16th birthday. She learned how to drive in a Trans Am, and with my previous experience with GP's, I knew this would be a good choice for her. Ours is a two door, has plenty of room in the front and rear, has a big trunk- for the junk...lol I think it's a good choice for a new driver. It's big enough so they wouldn't get too hurt in an accident, it has enough power to get out of the way, it handles and brakes good- really hasn't been any problems, other than what is going on now. Would I buy another one? yes.

Ruben's Gtp — That this car kicks butt! With the supercharger you can mess with faster cars and look good doing it! This car does 0 to 60 in 8 seconds which is awesome! I have a 194,000 miles and it's still running strong!
