    Great — This car is one of a kind, the mods were easy enough to do. My sunfire is going to be a whole new breed of performance though. As much as i love and will miss my grand prix. On to better things

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

    Pros: Easily modified

    Cons: watch your underbody and strut tower rust

    Best One I've Owned To Date. — Best car I've owned so far. Has an amazing balance of horsepower when you put your foot down compareed to gas economy when you drive it nicely. Very easily modable. Many parts out there if you've got the cash to spare.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: power and economy

    Cons: many tiny problems here and there (intake gasket, wheel hubs, strut bars etc.)

    Fun Car, The Size Of A Boat. — I love this car! The seats move with the flick of a switch. The back seat is more comfy than my bed, and almost as big! The dashboard is like the helm of the USS Enterprise. The car handles like a race car, and is the funnest thing i have driven in a long time.

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

    Pros: It is amazing

    Cons: The '97 was recalled.

    Best Car Ive Ever Owned — very quick for an all motor v6. the 3800 is unstoppable and easy to mod. handling is very good also seeing how low the car is. looks very aggressive outside and very luxurious inside. great gas mileage and tons of fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: one of the greatest cars gm ever produced

    Cons: few flaws here and there but none really

    One Of The Best Cars I Have Had. No Major Problems. — Great car, good gas mileage and quiet running. Engine is quick to respond and has ample power with a 3.8L six. Car still looks good, mine is a 1997, and has 167K Klicks. It;s solid, and hunkers down to do any serious driving. This car has cost me one Battery, and a a.t. recharge. I would reccomend it to anyone.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Ecellent Handling, in bad weather.

    Cons: Key gets stuck in the ignition sometimes.

    Grand Prix Gt Review By Mike — acceleration is good, brakes are great, handling is good even with a worn out suspension. it has a little squeak or two in the interior, nothing major, no major repairs. love the exterior styling, interior is pretty decent too. gas mileage is not bad at all for a 3.8L V6 (+ 18-city, +29- highway). i love my car and i would never get rid of it, its been too good to me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: i made it look the way it does and i think its hot.

    Cons: nothing
