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.

Pros

the 3800s are bullet proof

Cons

not as respected as they should be

25

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

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

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.

Nice Car

Cons

Gas Guzzler

Its Great To Drive And Its Fast But It Eats Gas — Its just black with a white pinstripe. The car itself is a nice car and I can't complain overall. It def could use some aftermarket stuff put into it and the it should regularly serviced for sure. Thats about it.

Gtp — Would be better if it had a turbo in stead of a roots blower. the roots blower heats up way to much and the car starts to lag in pick up. its a daily driver though so i guess it doesnt really matter.

Its a freaking awesome car to drive

Cons

Fuel milage could be better

I Love This Car — An excellent balance of power, speed and durability at an affordable price. Performance wise, a little slow on acceleration, excellent braking and handling. Interior is ver nice inside. Now, you can get car for dirt cheap. Very Fun to drive.

The look and the performance

Cons

The tranny in the GT models wasn't built to handle as much as the GTP models

Fun To Drive, Nice To Have In Winter. — The 97-03 was the best body build, the performance could have been better but its solid. The overall maintenance cost and random fees wasn't bad and it was a blast to drive. The chicks loved it and I loved all the perfromance parts available
