My Grand Prix — It's a 3.1 V6 Engine pushing out about 200 hp on good days. Hoping to upgrade exhaust systems and wheels in the future to get some more power out of the Grand Prix but for now I love power it already has. As of Aug of 08 it's got about 150,000 miles and still starts and runs the way it was when I first got it

Plastic bumpers, leather in summer sometimes not to much fun, and you'll love the car so much, if anything happens to it you'll want to kill the other person....guarenteed

2002 Grand Prix 40th Anniversary Edition — Okay, i will just have to probably go in order here so that way i dont start trailing off about this car. My first thought of buying this car was its a grand prix so i probably won't be too impressed with it, but boy was i wrong. The performance of my car is great. Maybe not compared to my neighbors 2008 beemer but for a average get around car, it moves. No problem squealing the tires on a bad day. The build quality was good up until other cars become involved. It will hold together but if someone hits you, the front and rear bumper are plastic and will get scraped and sucks to repair like i had to. Everything else is plain old metal and everything including the electric work and everything in the car is working good and holds up well. The appearance is amazing. It's a 40th anniversary edition so its got the special paint and its got the two tone leather on the inside. Dark cherry and black, and its also got a bose system, heated leather seat, and is the most amazing everyday car i have ever seen. My only regret is pontiac closing down and not making a 50th anniversary edition.

2002 Grand Prix Gtp Review From An Owner Of V8 Sports Cars — What can I say..I Looooove It!!! It's a super comfy car to cruise in anytime. On a 12 hr road trip it was great. I have osteoarthritis in my lower spine so I have major back pain and the seats are fully adjustable and heated allowing a person to customize to their complete comfort.The only thing that I'd say is a thumbs down on the seats is the passenger doesn't get the same treatment ie. no heat,no power lumbar or power anything.They changed this in the next generation. My GTP is fully loaded with every option possible which to me is great cause I love the bells and whistles,not all GTP's have this according to GM. I love the HUD(Heads up display) and wouldn't want another car without it.I never look down at the gauges because the HUD tells me everything I need,I'm sure everyone else that has this would agree. Basically all the options such as the power one touch drivers window(thumbs down for not having it for the passenger windows),changeable imperial to metric gauges for everything,programmable drivers info center,steering wheel controls,one touch power sunroof,keyless doors and trunk are all a great feature that I appreciate.The cup holders are kinda not where I like them but there isn't any place else really to put them.I Find using the cup holders gets in the way of shifting and if you spill from accelerating too hard or something of such it goes onto the shifter and consule.I do wish the Boost gauge showed up on the HUD though. *For the interior styling and options I give it a 8/10 The handling is great and feels solid.I can take corners at high speeds without feeling body roll and it feels like it hugs them as if it were on a rail.The discs all around make braking decent,never had any problems, although bigger calipers & cross drilled/vented discs would feel even better.The ride is very smooth and quiet inside,the suspension give on bumps is great and handles it accordingly.I do have a squeak on the left side hitting hard bumps which is from the shock,but makes no difference in handling.I am used to rear wheel drive cars so changing to a front wheel drive took a bit to get used to when the wheels start spinning and the torque thrust hits the steering wheel.I wish they would have made these cars rwd, it would have made them a bit more fun to goof around in. *For handling,suspension,braking etc., I give it a 8/10 The acceleration is good for a car that's not heavy but not a lightweight either.The supercharger is a definate plus and makes this car tons more fun.Because of the sc off the line is great and spanks a lot of other cars with bigger engines.For a little V6 it isn't a slug by any means and being a V8 owner for most of my life,I was very surprised by it and in awe.The nice thing about this car is there are tons of things that you can do to the engine to boost the hp with little money and effort. *From a done up V8 owners perspective I give the engine/performance a 9/10 The body and styling on these cars is good.The front end being my favorite to look at.It's low to the ground and wide making it look like more of a performance car.The wheels that came stock on mine aren't the worst I've seen for stock cars and are tolerable, but a simple polished or chrome 5 star would have been best,which came on newer models.The basic grand prix without the rear wing looks terrible,the wing that's on the GTP looks decent and sleek but I prefer the GTX wings giving it a sportier look.All in all the look of the GTP is nice and clean but fat and kinda gangster(is what the kids say now..lol). For exterior styling I give it a 8/10 Cost of ownership is great,no repairs have had to be made other than the GM recall.Regular 3 mos or 5000km oil changes and proper fluid changes when needed have kept my car running like new.They are picky about the plugs you run in them as they are supercharged and need a cooler running plug.My car runs best on 94 octane,GM recommends 91 or up so with the price of gas initial fueling can shock you.They have great gas mileage and I get 28mpg highway, but city driving depending on if you shift manually and use the gas pedal heavier you can go down to about 19-22mpg,which is fair for a larger car. *For Cost of ownership I give it a 10/10 The fun factor of this car is awesome,every time I get into it and drive it I fall in love all over again.With all the good this car carries with it, it is a real drivers car.It's got enough jam for the V8 nut,enough comfort, ride and handling for the Cadillac/Lexus driver and more than enough bells and whistles that will keep anyone happy.For this year of car it was priced decent and out beat more expensive cars that had the same performance,styling,quality and options.GM did well with this car and the new model is something to definately go check out and test drive as they are even more smokin fast,more optioned and still decently priced compared to other makes of comparable cars. I have changed the most faithful to a certain make, and stubborn minds with this car.That says something about these cars. All in all I give this car a 9/10

Love This Car But Want Something Better On Gas. — Overall I love this car. My friends who have one feel the same way. It's reliable and I can fit a total of five people in the car at once including myself. It is great for traveling and moving since there is a ton of space between the trunk and the back seat. It is not the worst on gas but it could be a lot better that would be my main complaint.

Grand Prix — Performance = Solid 3.8 liter makes this car very fun to drive and fast. A definite sleeper. Appearance = a very sleek and sexy car. Very appealing to the eye. Cost Ownership = A very cheap car to maintain. Great mpg ratings and 3800 series motor makes it very reliable. This car is a definite recomendation. That is the 2000's and up...

Love This Car, I Would Get Another One. — Bought with 55000mi used, still runs good, most current thing is revving issue between 1500-2500rpms & transmission leaking. Cost of ownership is low. The performance is good, fun to drive, was more fun to drive if fuel was lower in price. Build quality is good. Appearance is great.

Pretty Good Family Car. — I like this car because of the options, this car has a supercharged V6 engine that puts out 240 horses, so it's not to shabby. It has a cool heads up display on the windshield that shows all your important driving info like speed and gas :) Heated seats, sunroof, 12 speaker audio, leather seats. Not a bad ride.

Pontiac Grand Prix Gtp — I love my car...Its so unsuspecting. Lots of room, Great ride,Great power, Powered by a 3.8L supercharged engine. Pushing 240hp and 280lbs ft with a curb weight of 3400lbs. Lots of power great handling. Brakes are awsome with the slotted rotors. Gets about 18mpg all around not alot of matenence required, just the stuff in the manual 3k oil changes etc. The car is very fun to drive for an automatic. Not alot of cars on the road can keep up to this one.
