Pros

Safe, Great MPG, Fun in-town car.

Cons

Acceleration(3.1L), some models have been known to catch fire, Rare!

85

Great Car, But A Little To, "family Friendly" For Me. — Acceleration- 3.1L in town its a fun car, out on the open road its a wimp. the 3.8L however is fun and gives you some rush when you put the "pedal to the metal" Handling- low center of gravity gives it greater cornering, but raises concerns about bottoming out. Breaking- Is excelent if you looking for a safe quick response car, then you've found it.

Pros

All the custom work i did to make it my own, that beautiful 3800 engine, and the bose sound system

Cons

If gm made a product that sucked i wouldnt have owned 4 of em, that being said this along with basically every 3800's downfall is the transmission, the overdrive gear likes to fail, luckily I already had that fixed when i bought it

195

The Specter Gt — Performance, its pretty quick, 210 horse power at the crank shaft Build Quality, its a GM, great product what more can i say Appearance, Arctic white paint with red accents in as many places as i was able to paint em on, and i love my polished aluminum wheels, shiny arent they? Cost of Ownership, i think ive got about 3500 in it, and it gets around 19 to 20 in town and 28 highway mpgs, hopefully with some E3 spark plugs and a Cold air intake that will go up to 30-32 highway and maby 22-24 in town Fun Factor, yea its fun to drive, with the windows and sunroof open and the stereo playing it doesnt get much better, though it will once i finish my 5k audio build

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Ona 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Gtp Sedan — Performance; for a 3.8L supercharged sedan, it will launch fairly well, shifts nicely and can run up to desired speed quickly. Breaking is handled well once you upgrade to a slightly more aggressive pad. The major downfall with the performance side of the GTP is the handling, it is soft, with quite a large amount of body roll for a "performance" sedan. Build Quality; As with any modern American car it seems the list of squeaks and rattles could be almost endless. On the repair end, I must say that I have had to rebuild the transmission twice in the last year and a half. The second time, was six months after the first, and the clutch packs had hardly had a chance to break-in. Appearance; For a car designed in the late 90's it still looks great with more modern cars on the road today. The interior could have been laid out a little better, but overall, it is a pretty well designed car. Cost of ownership; This is where my real problem has been, each transmission was about $1400 to rebuild. Gas mileage is horrid in the city, and considering that is where most of my driving takes place, this is not a good thing. City mileage tends to hold stead around 19 mpg, but this can be redeemed if you do a fair amount of highway driving, because then the engine comes into it's own, and runs very economically averaging around 28 - 30 mpg. Which for a V6 at 75+ mph, is pretty good.

Pontiac's Best Sports Coupe Is A Cra For All Seasons — This is a sweet car. It has a full load and the 3.8 L motor delivers great performance with good fuel economy. The only thing that would make this car better is the availabilty of a manual transmission. The car has a good ride and decent handling and a cavernous rear seat is it has a wheel base that is common with the four door. We like the styling. We bought the car used in the spring of 2010 with 80,000 miles on the odometer. We had to do some work to the car (typical maintenance) shocks - front end parts, brakes tune up etc. and now it runs great. We did have some hot start issues which were cured with three things. New ignition coils, new crank and cam shaft sensor and a new fuel pump. Lets face it the car is 10 years old and lightly used when we bought it so we are not upset about that. 2010 has been a scorcher heat wave here in New England and since we had the repairs completed, the hot start issues have vanished. The shade tree mechanic may find the rear spark plugs along the fire wall tough to change. We accessed ours from the bottom of the car while it was on jack stands. We installed iridum plugs so that will not be a problem for 75,000 miles or so. Even replacing a serpentine belt replacement is a major event as we had to remove the coolant over flow tank to get the required clearance. This car is a hoot to drive and the factory installed bose sound is decent with the heads up speedomoter being positively space age. The rear control arms on the suspension were also replaced. We dumped the lousy u shaped GM arm for a box section arm from rock auto. The design detail on this car is impressive. (Makes me wonder why they killed Pontiac)I like the top engine braces and the cross members in the engine bay. GM obviously made this car to perform and it does not disappoint. The exhaust note is symphoney like and the power steering gives enough boost but not too much as you see in some cars. (nice to feel connected to the road). The rear end stying with the spoiler is tasteful and there is minimal torque steer. I am hopeful that the traction control combined with dedicated snow tires will make this a gem in winter as well. I will post another review once the snow flies. Trunk space is decent and the rear center arm rest allows access to the truck. My sons friend summed up the back seat accomodation this way "I love sitting in the back seat as it has bucket seats". Not exactly how I might describe them but they look comfortable.

2000 Grand Prix Gt Coupe — -Handled and performed much better when it was new -I still love the exterior appearance; still love it compared with the new body Grand Prix -Used to be fun to drive, now its so so hum hum -There's way to much cheap feeling plastic used in the cabin -A few things do not work anymore, like the power seat and a window...which is to be expected in a 140k mile car

Daytona 500 — The daytona 500 is the most prestigious race in the history of NASCAR. So when i wrecked my GTP and found a GTP Daytona 500 Edition, I had to have it. 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 phenomenal. The handling is great. The build quality is great. The exterior is very aggressive. 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. Maintenance is easy and affordable as well. Fun? Um yeah this car is a blast. WV6 Daytona 500 Pace Car Replica Package: -Unique 3 Spoke High Polished Aluminum Wheels -Daytona 500 Edition Rear Spoiler and Exhaust Tips -Daytona 500 Edition Heat Extractors on Hood -Nascar Style Roof Fences -Daytona 500 Edition Front Seats with Special Instrument and Console Trim -Daytona 500 Edition Ext. Decal -Galaxy Silver Metallic Ext. Paint
