Pros

The feel of supercharged boost

Cons

Room for the family and comfy ride

Fwd Muscle Car — Its a sleeper, Wolf in sheep's clothing. A lot of low end grunt with a Supercharged 3.8L V6. Capable of high 20s MPG and plenty of room for 5 adults. Looks sporty but not very aggressive. The chassis is solid, Drive train is Powerful and robust, Interior lacks attention to detail but is comfy. Braking and high speed cornering leave room for improvement but the car is nimble for its size.

Impressive — I really enjoy this car because you have to room and space to modify. I bought mine stock and it had decent horsepower and i loved the look of the car, it looks sleek but mean. I think GM did a great job with the stability of the car, there is no lean at all. I havent encountered any mechanical issues at all and I have done a lot of modifications to it, that just shows it has a strong built motor that can handle more horsepower than what it was designed for. The car is very fun to drive and show off. Stock, the gas mileage is decent for a large sedan but now that it is modded its a little iffy. I enjoy the car tremendously and it is the best purchase I have ever made. I own the GTP Special Edition and love it, it definatly will not be traded in. The super charger puts out 10 lbs of boost which is really good for a super charger that is stock to a car. The car hauls and sounds great, the exhaust they manufactured with the car is wonderful, you can actually hear it!! This is the car you have got to check out, it is nothing like I have ever experienced!

Huge trunk for an awesome system

Cons

fogged over headlights

Grand Prix Gt — I've had three Grand Prixs. This one is lacking on the acceleration dept.it just takes it a little longer to accelerate then my last one but it handles well. There is no rust a few minor scratches, can barely see them unless your really looking. Very fun to drive. Very good on gas. Needed all around pads and rotors, the headlights are also fogged over as are the rest of the grand prixs. Yes, i would recommend this car to my friends.

Pros

Performance (14.3 @ 96 mph stock!), ride, room. Decent highway mileage (31) for a car of this size. Good in snow as well, the traction control does a good job when the roads get nasty.

Cons

Build quality, mechanical issues.

Great Performance, But Build Quality Is Disappointing. — I bought my '01 GTP Sedan brand new, and though I love the styling, performance, and features & options, I'm not happy with the fit & finish of this car. Mechanically, it hasn't been too bad, but it has required a few repairs, such as; New R/F wheel bearing and fuel pump at 7,800 miles, new L/S CV shaft at 25,000 miles.

Nothing But Problems From The Beginning!!! — I bought this car brand new. I have had nothing but major problems with it, since it had only 18K on it. It is always things that mechanics tell me I shouldn't have wrong with it, with the amounts of mileage that I have on it. I had a Grand AM before it, that was also nothing but trouble. That one always had electrical problems. I made a promise that I will NEVER, ever again, buy an american car, and am sticking to it. I will be looking at Honda's this week. I will never suggest a Pontiac to anyone!!

Pros

Stylish, comfortable seats, good sound(mine has bose speakers), plenty of leg room in front and back, the trunk is huge! It handles well, I live in Kansas, where there is just no telling what the weather will be like. This car can handle any weather conditions. Unless you get over like 5-6 inches of snow, it sits a little bit too low to drive through that.

Cons

When it starts having problems, those problems get really expensive, really quick. And these cars are notorious for their problems.

If You Can't Afford A Better Car, This One Will Work For Awhile Until You Can. — It is a great car, until things start having problems. Then it seems like a chain reaction into more and more problems. However, this is a by the car basis. I used to own a 97 grand prix, and drove it over 200,000 miles with hardly any problems. And the last couple thousand of that were after I got in a wreck with it. If you can find one of these that has been well maintained, with decent miles, for a good price-well then you might find a winner. But I would definitely take a mechanic with you to look it over before you buy it.

Pros

Much more fun to drive and look at than a Camry, at a lower cost, lower insurance premium and at the same reliability. Plenty of trunk space and interior is roomy with exception of hip room in back. Very few problems experienced in 199k miles of daily driving. Extremely reliable engine.

Cons

Very few. Transmission could be improved. That's been my biggest complaint of the car. Not well matched to the car's "sporty" appearance.

A Great Mid-priced Coupe That's Easy To Own. — In over 12 years of ownership, I have put just short of 200,000 miles on this car. It is front-wheel drive, so tires need to be rotated often. However, I've experienced good mileage from most of the tires I've put on this car. I upgraded the brakes and some suspension parts (stabilizer bars and links), using available GM parts, and that was both inexpensive to do and made a dramatic difference in the cars handling and stopping ability. Average handling and braking in stock setup. Reliability is this cars strong suit. The 3.8 liter, natural-aspirated engine (L36) is almost indestructible. The only weak point has been the upper and lower intake manifold gaskets, which were redesigned in later models. I had to replace those gaskets in 2012. As a daily driver, it is excellent, no drama, always starts and gets decent gas mileage. Not bad on a trip with 3 or less, I would not recommend putting 4 or 5 in the car for any distance. I have been extremely pleased with this car, which is why I'm still driving it every day.
