I Love My Car :] — Totally stock besides my halo headlights and it's got blue interior lights and pink turn signals. It's pretty quick for bein a huge car and handles really smooth. I get about 20mpg and fill it up every week, but I drive it a lot.

A Good Car For Someone Who Is Easy On Cars. — this car has good accelleration for a family car and despite it's long wheelbase holds corners well. the brakes work well but durability could be much better. if anyone puts a car through it's paces, it's me. i've put 45,000 miles on mine in about 9 months of driving and found that most people would not have major issues with reliability. however, when things do break it is difficult to work on and issues often arise in groups. i've put roughly 3,000 dollars in repairs into the car, mostly in suspension and brake parts. the 4 speed automatic tranny blows shift solenoids every 20,000 miles (2 years for most people) and the spider gears in the differential will explode easily under full throttle takeoff after a while. on the highway at 60 miles per hour it will get astronomical gas mileage- i made it from springfield mass to bucksport maine on 4.5 gallons last summer. this car is fun to drive but watch out, you won't think you're going as fast as you actually are and it will get you in trouble.

I Loved It So Much I Bought Another! — My first car was a 4 door Grand Prix GT. unfortunatly it was totalled in and accident but I knew I wanted another one just like it. The one I have now is a Silver 2001 GT Special Edition. The second time around I found EXACTLY what I was looking for the first time. I love the acceleration off the line. Braking has saved me a couple times and the handling, well, let's just say I've taken it out on a road course (both the sedan and the coupe) and had a blast! I was driving and yelling all at the same time. It is a soild built car. Repairs are typical of an older car along with the maintenance. Maintenance is relativly low as it is a daily car. Gas mileage for what this car is capable of is great. Highway I normally get between 30 and 35 (it pays to take good care of your car) The car looks as sharp as a GTP (most people think it is a GTP) The added factory Special Edition package makes the exterior look sleek. No body rust and it has been WI/MI kept since it came off the lot! Interior is close to showroom condition. The two toned leather and all the additional options (heads up, heated seats, dual controls, etc.) make the interior as comfortable to be in as higher end sedans. Only real drawback is the low clearance-I will occasionally drag when pulling into driveways.

Cons

Awesome First Car! — First car, and has definitely been awesome. Great on gas, accelerates well (especially under my lead foot). Best part, I only paid a couple grand for it! Driven it to Greenwich, CT from Cape Cod, and back and forth from CC to FLA. Handles great, no blind spots (thank God!) and definitely likes to go fast every once in a while (that may be me, but oh well.)

Very Sporty — I really enjoy driving this car. It looks really great and I enjoy turning up the music with the sunroof open on a sunny day. The only downside is about the AC not working. But, it's really not that hot outside around here anyways!

The Cost To Keep Her Well Groomed And Running Great @ Her Age. — When I purchased this car is was just for going shopping and making it to all my appointments and to be of service to others if needed. Well I did not know what I had unit I was getting so many question as to how much do I want for the car and is it for sale, NO! Well I was surprise to hear and see it was the young people that wanted my car. So with that knowledge I had a Remote Starter with an Alarm system put on it. Wasn't thinking...I did purchase it from a young Amish Boy who was returning to the way of the Amish People driving there horse and buggie. I have known them for about 9 years now...He gave me all the paper work of the up keep and cost of the repairs he did. I enjoy this car so that sometime I would just go for a drive on the back roads of the city (the road less travel) as if I was going out of town...

Nice Car, Dead Relaible, And Can Be Faster Than Almost Anything For Less Than Half The Price — stock... nothing special. but after all my mods, i run side by side with evo. and even with all the mods included, and other interior/ exterior upgrades to look better. its still less than 1/4 of the price. all in all a great mod car

Pros

The engine. the 3.8 has some torque to it.

Cons

The brakes! It needs drilled/slotted rotors, and some better pads.

25

It May Have A Few Little Things Wrong With It, But Its A Great Car — Man, i love this car. its the first car thats ever been in my name. Currently, it has a couple little things wrong with it, and something that i need to get fixed. But other than that, its a great car. Definitely an attention getter. I have a lot of faith in the 3.8 under the hood.. except for my city milage. lol but even stock, i think the dual ehaust has a great note, with the rumble that you would want.

GM did a horrible job putting these cars together.

Pontiacs Need To Be Treated With A Lot Of Car. Great For Power/high Speeds, Terrible For Reliabitly. — Car drives, and performs amazingly. Only negatives I can think of are the build quality. Several parts tend to fail, and some of the designs seem poor. The cost is pretty high, only due parts that always seem to break a lot. Over all I love it.
