Has Been Excellent Car For These Past 23 Years — Not many left on the road but still see a few here and there. Still a very stylish body for its age. Had to replace the 5-speed transmission due to a part failure, had a few engine problems which took a while to sort out, but engine is still strong and could last another 125k miles. Car is comfortable to drive long distances as the front seats are all way adjustible. It is a heavy car and rides well on the highway and gets great highway mileage.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Have owned it since new and always enjoyed its styling. It is a rare 5 speed transmission model and very economical on the highway where it cruises along at 70 miles per hour at 2000 rpm. I've gotten over 32 mpg on cross country trips.

Cons: Parts are getting very hard to locate. Need to reupholster the front seats and get it a nice paint job.

Great Car To Own And Be Seen In. — 210 HP V6 engine with Supercharger and 24 values and double overhead cam was the fastest and best handling car I had owned at the time. A real fun car to drive with great acceleration and cornering. Had a very European styling look to it. Bad brake pedal slider design meant excessive front brake wear and multiple replacements due to the rear brake seizing up (in effect giving you front wheel braking only) because of corrosion from winter road salt in my area. The problem was finally rectified with the installation of stainless steel slider rods on all four wheels. Th only other problem was the replacement of the alternator twice because of bad placement at the back of the engine were it received very little cooling. Apparently this was corrected on later models with the introduction of a cooling duct.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks and performance.

Cons: Some design flaws.

Not The Best Car But Hey Its A Car. — Not a bad car. very throaty exhaust and not a real bad build quality either. although the door handles are not the best. All in all not a bad car, even though I blew a rod through the block which sucks.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the exhaust

Cons: um....its dead.

1989 Grand Prix Se — It's mean Awasome And I Love It. With Overdrive You Can Fly In This Thing. Just Watch for The 5.0. It Picks Up speed Fast. Just Kepp The oil changed and the engine tuned and you will Be Fine. These are The Only car's I Drive On The Road. It's Built For The highway. Yes The highway. I Mean the 400 Series. it was a switch from km/h to m/ph cuse the speed is digital.

Pros: It's got a great 2.8L V6

Cons: Just No Supercharger

Rammin' The Ram — The term "rode hard..put away wet" best describes this truck..there is no where that my hubby has not taken this truck..it has been hunting, shopping, bogging, climbing, chased horses, sheep. the only thing it hasn't done yet is been on its side or roof..has put up with years of hard driving and still makes an effort..seems to run better now while pulling a full load...ugly does not describe it but it has character,,,Hubby put glowing eyes into the ram head..looks pretty cool.

Pros: Tough, honest work truck

Cons: rusty, rusty. rusty..

Absolutely Fun To Drive — I loved this car. It was absolutely my favorite. It was mostly basic but had a digital dash and premium stereo. It was a 2 door and was so fun to drive. I loved the interior and the ride was very comfortable.

Pros: great on gas, fun to drive and looked good too

Cons: Bad rear brakes common with these and also common the o-ring for the oil pump drive dries out, also the coil packs mounted in a very bad spot
