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.

Get It Man — It has really good acceleration for a 200hp car and can brake rather quickly and the handling is what makes this car. It has a good build quality depends on how well you take care of it but tends to have problems. The gt and up models all look rather good. the cost is rather cheap considering its power it gets around 22-25mpg avg between city and highway. Its an awesome to drive and great for anyone my age!

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.

Buy It — Its awesome. I love to drive this car and i think it will last for a very long time. I have 90k miles on it but its still amazing to drive. I wish it was a manual car, then i would never sell it.

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.

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

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.

Get Somthing Else. — not to bad on gas. should have bought a spectra SE R spec-V 6 speed. 200hp isn't bad but the car is pretty heavy. but it is fun to drive . sometimes it doesn't turn off though witch is a pain.

Fun To Drive Looks Nice..... Needs Repairs — Build quality is the bad part of this car. frame squeaks but that might be from the curbs i have hit lol. it is quick and the tinted windos and decals make it look nice. gas milage is quite nice it gets and average of 25 mpg. but i have driven alot though. over 140,000 miles. its fun to drive
