1996 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe SE 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought this car with 91k miles in excellent condition for only $2k. Mechanical quality is very good, however interior workmanship is very weak. All plastic parts are loose and tolerances appear to be plus or minus about an inch... definately not up to japanese standards. But good looking and cheap and seemingly reliable.


Best Features

Inexpensive, good styling.


Worst Features

Incredibly poor interior materials and tolerances.

1996 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe SE 2dr Coupe


Review

My car had 122k on it when I bought it and ran and looked brand new. I have the "Special Edition" package, which basically is the paint, wheels and sound system, and the stickers. The only problem I have ever had with any of my Grand Prix's has been alternators. I have put one in every GP I've owned (except this one, knock on wood). Other than that, it's a great ride. It's my sexy car!


Best Features

I LOVE the buttons on the steering wheel. I also love the fact that it is sporty, but still roomy inside (especially for a two-door). I also love how the car handles -- it owns the road!! This car has made me a loyal Pontiac owner for life!


Worst Features

Pontiac needs to re-evaluate the electrical system... other than that, I have no complaints...

Review

My car has had no problems so far and it has 90000 miles on it. It drives like it's brand new.


Best Features

The exterior is probably my favorite feature, but the radio controls on the steering wheel are great too.


Worst Features

There are none that I can think of.

Review

This car has been a pleasure to own, other than alternator failure times three. I've heard similar stories from other Grand Prix owners. Perhaps Pontiac needs to address the electrical system. Having heads up (a/k/a eye Q) has spoiled me for any car that lacks that option. Upgrading the tires to Toyas much improved cornering and quieted the ride.


Best Features

Heads up Radio controls on steering wheel


Worst Features

Alternator problems
