Originally purchased with 132,000 -
currently has 314,817 miles. Its on its
2nd water pump! The original got me to
313,000. Have replaced the IAC Valve,
Alternator, BRAKES,Got 150k on my last
set of tires. Its a tight car.
Excellent road car unless you are a
passenger. Car has the console mounted
compass. My tip is to use Synthetic
motor oil and the BEST filter you can
get. I change the oil every 6k miles,
but once went 16k. Had one wheel
bearing replaced. Overall a great car.
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
Gas milage is excellent. Very
comfortable to ride in.
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.
Solid, tight body for high mile GM car.
Quiet/no wind noise. Old car still gets
looks. Good quality clearcoat paint on
mine (gray).Decent power.
Somewhat poor rear visibility; parts of
interior are gaudy/Cassette holder just
weird looking. Surprisingly wide
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
It is a very comfortable ride and the 5
speed transmission helps make it easy
on gas. It has the original clutch
still going strong.
