1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan


Review

It has a few nice features. Worth at least 3x more than dealerships will give so it's a keeper.

1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 2dr Coupe


Review

I absolutely enjoy my GTP. It's such a good car. It has been reliable throughout my 3 years of owning it. While it is a big car it drives like a sports car. I've done alittle bit of engine work to mine though. The 3800 is a great platform to build and work on. They will take the abuse and building power is easy and relatively cheap to reach higher power outputs.

Review

so theres a lot of stuff that goes wrong with this car. coolant elbow under alternator goes bad, blower motor only works on 5, and some other little quirks. but thats not where i want to go with this review.
This is a SOLID CAR. i beat the crap out of my car for 8 years. from 118k to 212k miles i drive it hard. always changed the oil. the only thing that happened is 3rd gear stopped working. and honestly im surprised it lasted as long as it did with all the burnouts and snow doughnuts i did.


Best Features

HUD is the coolest feature of this car even though i never used it. and the range meter.


Worst Features

more power. better rust protection, better seats.

1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe


Review

Needless to say, I absolutely Love this car! I enjoy destroying others on the street and absolutely confident on back country roads, does not shy from bends, twists or any kind of roads, even goes nicely down dirt or gravel roads.


Best Features

Mine has a Glasspack fitted on the exhaust, new Intake. The power is smooth, handles great, And I love the interior. Very simple and clean. Oh, 30 mpg hwy doesn't hurt either


Worst Features

RWD and a V8 with a 5 speed manual would make it the ultimate sedan/ coupe.
