I am a previous owner of a 2000 Grand Prix Supercharged. After driving that torque monster this car is slow off the line, but the power above 3500 is decent. This is no stoplight blaster nor is it a slug. The 2.3L has enough juice to merge and pass at speed. The suspension/handling is excellent, even on the busted-up streets here in the Northeast. Build quality is solid. I do 80% city or heavy traffic driving and this car gets the job done. I love to have cargo capacity without having to drive a big slow gas-guzzler-box. If you are looking for a fun-to-drive, versatile car with decent fuel economy, this may be the one for you.
Projector headlights & fog lights. Manumatic tranny. Sweet suspension & handling for a FWD. Good interior & exterior design, Hatchback usefulness without the hatchback look.
More torque in the low-mid range, 20- 30 more HP, needs a 5th gear in the auto, better highway gas mileage. Rear seats feel like wooden planks. Too much wind noise above 60mph.
