Great Power And Awesome Handling — I loved this car just to small for me and my long legs, It had lots of power and great handling and excellent on gas would be a great 1st car for a girl going to school and wanting to come home every weekend to see family and 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.

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.

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!

The feel of supercharged boost

Cons

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.

My Grand Prix — I love this car, yeah it may be the standard stripped model and it does not have a racing engine, but for what I paid for, this car is amazing. Since my purchasing of the car on September 2, 2009, I have put in a 300 watt 2-way subwoofer in the trunk, a brand new kenwood 300 watt stereo with AMP, a new full exhaust, new tires, some blue accented lights inside and more. It has a great strong build and The body style has alot of potential. I painted the front under grill and the side skirts semi-flat black and Im going to do a solid stripe along the whole bottom. This car runs amazing and very comfortably seats 5 people. Gas mileage is great, I get around 22-27 mpg on average. Putting 93 in the tank instead of 87 really brings out the power in the car, you really feel a pull when you hit the gas and it takes off. The engine has a pretty distinct sound for not having almost anything done to it but a new stainless steel exhaust and some minor work to the block, but it sounds great when you really hit the gas. The build quality is pretty good, My only problem with mine so far is the front bumper. It is a little bit shaky, mostly because it has been backed up into about 5 times since september 09 when I bought it. But nonetheless it has a sloid build and a great look. The car is really fun to drive, being so comfortable and big you get a great smooth ride and the handling, especially with my Yokohoma touring S tires on it, is flawless. I give this car a thumbs up, especially for a first time driver like I was.

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...

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt — The 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT. This is a transporter that lives up to its domestic heritage and more. Domestics have been known for their power and size - lots of passenger space and trunk space. All the creature comforts a man needs to become one with his machine and ergonomics to keep up with the Europeans. Good styling and great looking to rival the Japanese and European competition. Handling is quite responsive and acceleration is quite good - with the potential of adding a supercharger. The Series II 3.8L powerplant has the ability to be efficient on gas mileage if one is able to resist the urge to race between destinations with or without TCS aka Launch Control. Winter handling is improved with traction control and anti-lock brakes, however this front wheel drive like so many others has a tendency to understeer on icy roads when exceeding the safe speed limit - also the low ground clearance makes this a good candidate to retire for the winter months. I'd own a second one of these should the opportunity arise - this second one with a Ram Air Hood Scoop & Intake Package and a Supercharger.

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.
