Comfort And Value For The Money — I am the second owner of my 2001 grand prix gt. I personally believe this car is over looked by many .Out of the box this car handles reasonably well,loaded with options standard,great gas mileage for a large car and decent comfort.......$8200.00 used come on............. Well did you know that there are lots of performance parts available for this car? And they make a huge difference in performance, handling and braking.GM performance makes handling and braking packages for the g body.ZZPerformance manufactures custom bolt on parts for the GP. They also modify stock parts to increase HP on the 3800.I personally have purchased many of these parts.My GP has picked up at least 100 hp.It handles as well as a BMW of its size, and stops on a dime.It still gets 28mpg when my foots not in it........Thats just my opinion. And by the way I have not had one major problem with this car.

Owner for 2 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

Pros: For a sports sedan,Good value for the money

Cons: Rear tail lights retain moisture. Front headlights get cloudy. With sun roof open at 85mph makes a lot of cabin noise.Hard to stop this car with stock front brakes. Front brakes need upgrading to 12inch rotors and new calipers.

Great Performance, But Build Quality Is Disappointing. — I bought my '01 GTP Sedan brand new, and though I love the styling, performance, and features & options, I'm not happy with the fit & finish of this car. Mechanically, it hasn't been too bad, but it has required a few repairs, such as; New R/F wheel bearing and fuel pump at 7,800 miles, new L/S CV shaft at 25,000 miles.

Owner for 6 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: Performance (14.3 @ 96 mph stock!), ride, room. Decent highway mileage (31) for a car of this size. Good in snow as well, the traction control does a good job when the roads get nasty.

Cons: Build quality, mechanical issues.

At 75,000mi. the fule pump began to act up,now it dose not register the proper amount of fule in the tank.At 90,000mi.the wheel bearings had to be replaced.At 95,000 the fan switch and eng management system seams to be on the blink.

Pontiacs Rule — This is one of the most reliable cars. But there is some minor issues. Lets see for one i have had recent problems with the Alternator. So when i was going to school one day the car just stops and i looked at the alternator and i saw that the belt was off and all that. So i got it towed to our class cause i take automotive tech and he said that we can work on it as a class project. After all that i have never had any problems with the alternator ever since.

Nothing But Problems From The Beginning!!! — I bought this car brand new. I have had nothing but major problems with it, since it had only 18K on it. It is always things that mechanics tell me I shouldn't have wrong with it, with the amounts of mileage that I have on it. I had a Grand AM before it, that was also nothing but trouble. That one always had electrical problems. I made a promise that I will NEVER, ever again, buy an american car, and am sticking to it. I will be looking at Honda's this week. I will never suggest a Pontiac to anyone!!

Silver Bullet — For the 3 years I have owned it, it has had numerous problems. It seems after the car had reached 110k, I have been doing nothing but making repair upon repair. It also seems like there is no simple way of dealing with the power steering issue with the reservoir that I cant find a local mechanic to repair correctly. The car is up to 130 k and have had enough!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: roomy, fast.

Cons: many repair costs since i purchased. seems like something wrong every day...

If You Can't Afford A Better Car, This One Will Work For Awhile Until You Can. — It is a great car, until things start having problems. Then it seems like a chain reaction into more and more problems. However, this is a by the car basis. I used to own a 97 grand prix, and drove it over 200,000 miles with hardly any problems. And the last couple thousand of that were after I got in a wreck with it. If you can find one of these that has been well maintained, with decent miles, for a good price-well then you might find a winner. But I would definitely take a mechanic with you to look it over before you buy it.

Pros: Stylish, comfortable seats, good sound(mine has bose speakers), plenty of leg room in front and back, the trunk is huge! It handles well, I live in Kansas, where there is just no telling what the weather will be like. This car can handle any weather conditions. Unless you get over like 5-6 inches of snow, it sits a little bit too low to drive through that.

Cons: When it starts having problems, those problems get really expensive, really quick. And these cars are notorious for their problems.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt — The 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT. This is a transporter that lives up to its domestic heritage and more. Domestics have been known for their power and size - lots of passenger space and trunk space. All the creature comforts a man needs to become one with his machine and ergonomics to keep up with the Europeans. Good styling and great looking to rival the Japanese and European competition. Handling is quite responsive and acceleration is quite good - with the potential of adding a supercharger. The Series II 3.8L powerplant has the ability to be efficient on gas mileage if one is able to resist the urge to race between destinations with or without TCS aka Launch Control. Winter handling is improved with traction control and anti-lock brakes, however this front wheel drive like so many others has a tendency to understeer on icy roads when exceeding the safe speed limit - also the low ground clearance makes this a good candidate to retire for the winter months. I'd own a second one of these should the opportunity arise - this second one with a Ram Air Hood Scoop & Intake Package and a Supercharger.

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

Pros: Too many positives to list!!!

Cons: Not worth mentioning the negatives!!!  Not many at all which pale in comparison to the positives.
