How long will this prix last?

Asked by Sep 17, 2014 at 04:48 PM about the 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix 2 Dr SE Coupe

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm looking at a '96 prix on craigslist, listed for $2000 or best offer. It's in overall nice condition but I'm worried about the engine. It's a 3.1L V6 and it has 244k miles. Would this car even last me a year? How much could I talk him down to? Only repairs it needs are new tires at the moment.

Find out if the head gaskets have been replaced yet. At that mileage I'd suspect that they have. But make sure. They're notorious for failure on the 3.1s. I'm sure this car is at least on it's second transmission by now. But pay close attention, when you test drive it, to how the transmission behaves. They're notorious for being troublesome, especially the shift solenoids. They're inside the tranny and big bucks to replace! If it shifts hard they're on their way out! So pay attention! HTH. -Jim
