Best 1st car

Vehicle: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 2dr Coupe

Very 1st car I purchased, paint was peeling, muffler falling off. I paid about $1,500 cash when I was 15 and it brought me right up through my jr. year of college when it was replaced b/c mom was getting a new truck, so dad got her old one and I got his. almost 200k and she purred like a kitten. I spent some money to repaint her myself but that's the fun of your first car.




Super dependable

Vehicle: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 2dr Coupe

I bought this car from my dad. It had been his company car. Then I used it in college. Then my sister used it. Then it sat for 2 years. Finally, I bought it, put a new battery in it, changed the tires, and have driven it just about every day since. It is great in warm or cold weather, handles well, gets good gas mileage, and just runs like crazy.




There will never be another....

Vehicle: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 2dr Coupe

I have put 234,200 miles on my Grand Prix and I should have been able to put more on but I sheared number 1 spark plug and I think it is over. This car has been unbelievable. I bought it with 6 miles on the odometer. She tended to burn through alternators but here is the list of stuff still on her from Detroit - radiator, water pump, entire exhaust system, front shocks/struts, transmission, all light bulbs except one (side marker - this fact never stops amazing me), all gaskets (did have to replace coolant return once), electric fans, spark plugs wires, A/C works like new, there is still just so much that is original equipment.




Best i ever owned

Vehicle: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 2dr Coupe

I have had many cars in my day, but my 90 Pontiac Grand Prix is the best I've had. She had 20000 miles when I bought her and now 12 years later and only 165000 I haven't spent hardly anything on her. Total since bought is: replaced alternator, replaced engine gaskets, 4 tuneups, 1 set brakes, 3 sets tires and thats it. Still running original clutch and exhaust. Wish I could find a new one as good. I'll keep her until she or I die, whichever comes first.




Old and solid

Vehicle: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 2dr Coupe

The Grand Prix has been a very good car. It's very solid for 180,000 miles. Only did an alternator and tie rods, tune-ups,that kind of thing. Good runner and very quiet. Good mileage with a stick. Aging very gracefully and never a surprise.




Best car i ever owned

Vehicle: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix LE 2dr Coupe

I have had this car for 10 years. Bought it with 22,000 miles and it now has 160,000. It has been driven all over the US, including Alaska where I bought, it with minimal expense. I have never had a car that performed this well.
