1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Overview

The Pontiac arrowhead logo is meant to symbolize forward propulsion. The newly redesigned Pontiac Grand Prix is hoping to live up to that icon, and is certainly giving it its best shot with the 3.8-liter, 195-hp V6 that sits in the GT sedan and coupe. When equipped with the GTP package, it gets a supercharged version of this engine rated at 240-hp. Not bad for a mid-size family car. The only change to the 1998 Grand Prix is that traction control now comes with the supercharged GTP, making it standard across the Grand Prix lineup. Starting with the base SE sedan, which carries the old 3.1-liter, 160-hp V6, for a decent price you still get a lot of features, such as ABS brakes, dual front and side impact airbags, power windows, locks, and mirrors, remote entry, air conditioning, and tilt steering. There are plenty of options in the form of leather seats, power driver's seat, sunroof, and a heads-up display which projects dash information onto the windshield so you don't have to take your eye off the road. The GT and GTP sedans and coupes are the main attraction, though, for their engine power and loaded offerings. Though practical for families due to its large interior room and large trunk, the 1998 Grand Prix also satisfies drivers looking for a little fun on the highway. The 3800 engine is perfect for cruising at high speeds, and the wide track platform provides solid handling, less body roll, and responsive acceleration. The Grand Prix feels confident in the snow. Owners agree you get a lot for a small pricetag. The main problem with the 1998 Grand Prix seems to be unpredictable power windows, thanks to a faulty window regulator. Other complaints mention the headlamp lenses tend to fall off, the plastic interior looks cheap, and the gas mileage is not as good as reported.
