1995 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe SE 2dr Coupe


Review

The car looks nice. It has a cool sporty look to it. The 3.1 V6 engine has a few problems, the biggest being the valve cover gaskets will leak after 75,000 miles and it will hurt your engine severely. The car could get better gas mileage if it wasnt so heavy. The weight gives you good traction in the summer but in winter its hard to get up hills from a stop. Acceleration could be better. The stock radio sounds nice until turned up, speakers are nice. Transmission could be better, it tends to shift into 4th before the rpm's get high enough, making it sluggigh accelerating over 70. The honeycomb rims are impossible to keep clean and the paint chips off causing the the actual wheel to corrode.


Favorite Features

Body styling, inside and out


Suggested Improvements

more sturdy front bumper, lighter weight, manual to save gas, rear wheel drive to keep the drivetrain simpler. Better looking rims.

1995 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe SE 2dr Coupe


Review

Well this was my first car. when i got it it ad over 160k on it, and it's being parked at my fathers warehouse (for my younger brother to eventually drive). it's a good car and got me from a to b. sometimes the computer would be anoying with gearchanges, but only if you were trying to punch the gas at 40mph. at about 165k we found coolant in the engine=very expensive to replace. also not uncommon for this car to have the oxygen sensor go out (most grand prix's do) the only big problem (with me being 18 and loving rock music) the sound system is VERY weak, and the steering wheel controls are negated once a 3rd party stereo is installed. i liked my Grand Prix enough to buy another one this week


Favorite Features

still can squeel the wheels if you want, not that many "great features" just the plain car


Suggested Improvements

dashboard broke, fan covers broke, not a fan of the exterior styling

Review

I bought this car used from an individual mainly because I liked the looks of it. I have never regretted buying it. I drive a lot of miles (80 mile commute daily) & even now it's solid as a rock. I've never had to put anything other than the usual maintenence type things (battery, brakes, headlamps, etc.) into it. It's been well worth the $$$ & it'd be a great first car for a kid. Don't hesitate to rely on it.


Favorite Features

Overall style & feel. It has a sporty feel in a midsize body.


Suggested Improvements

The plastic mouldings chip too easily and I'd have preferred a higher grade leather, but it's definitely worth what I paid.

Review

Bought the car brand new. No mechanical problems to date thankfully. The paint started to fade out after two years of ownership and the dash top has faded. Since the car was two years old and had 56,000 miles on it Pontiac would not pay to have repainted but they did pay half of it. The outside has been repainted and looks nice. Good gas mileage. and after ten years of service still looking great.


Favorite Features

Exterior design. esp. the front end and the aero performance package.


Suggested Improvements

better materials for interior and fade resistant paint.

Review

this white 3.4 special edition white grand prix has provided reasonable, reliable service the last 10 years of my ownership. i bought it brand new. there have been maintenance & electrical repairs which have been expensive, but the dealership is only source of precise mechanic work. you do have to put GM parts for replacement to keep this 2dr coupe running smoothly. i am still proud of its handling & i drive it everyday on the highway 50 miles round-trip to work. it remains a fun car to drive.


Favorite Features

wide body side moldings, pillar mounted door handles, heads-up display, trip computer outside thermometer, magna-steer powering steering, hidden wipers, dual-dual exhaust, leather seats, moon-roof, security chip on ignition key, keyless entry, light under hood


Suggested Improvements

additional cooling fan run continuously with a/c on, bigger rotors for braking, wider tires to 17", wipers moving in same direction, battery position placement not being underneath washer fluid container, quiter interior, scratch-resistant textured interior plastic pieces
