1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe

Review

My vehicle was at the dealership at least once per month to diagnose problems. While the car looks great, and the performance is fantastic, the car lacks in overall quality. It is unreliable, costly to maintain, and quite frankly, unsafe to drive when one considers the nature of its mechanical failures. In total (before I got rid of it at 190K), the vehicle incurred approximately $16,000 in repair costs, with $12,000 of those costs incurring within the warranty/extended warranty period. This includes an engine overhaul after total engine failure at 120K.

Favorite Features

Great exterior lines; well-designed interior; exceptional performance; good gas mileage.

Suggested Improvements

Totally unreliable. If you enjoy spending tons of $$ on repairs and practically living at the dealership, you'll love this car! I wouldn't even recommend this car to my worst enemy!
