1989 Pontiac Grand PrixReview

I'd Trade My Sebring For It!! — This car was superperformant!! the 2.8 L engine had enough torque to pik-up that hood. This lil V6 was very well made never broke down and was super secure and well designed. With only one manufacturer problem that was never fixed thats why it was lost.

Pros: Economic , Powerful, Secure and well-designed!!

Cons: Manufacturer default and odometer broke!

Update On March 2013 - Now At 346,000 Miles And Still Dependable. — I bought this in 1989 when it was 6 months old with 10,000 miles on it. I now have 346,000 miles on it. It's my daily driver and the engine runs great. I have had the transmission rebuilt and for some reason it has gone through four alternators since I've owned it. I get an average city/hwy mileage of 25 mpg with the 3.1 V6. It still does not burn oil (I've changed the oil every 3 - 4,000 miles). Interior was totally modified by Tim's Auto Upholstery in Duluth, GA. He did an awesome job (a real pro). It's not as fun as my 2006 GTO, but it's good for daily driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mileage, engine smoothness, and reliability.

Cons: Transmission rebuilt at 250,000 miles.  Interior cloth degraded.  Interior plastic parts become brittle and are difficult to find in the 'gently used' recycled parts market.  Very few new interior parts found, even on ebay or craigslist..

1989 Pontiac Grand Prix SE Review
This was a fast enough car with decent gas mileage and very comfortable on the road. The one showed in white was the one I had and IMO the sharpest.
