1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan

Review

At 6 yrs and 83k miles, I have a few more problems to list. Now the power door lock actuator (front, passenger) works when it feels like it ($52/part). The clear portion of the other headlamp fell off ($72/part). Dealer tried to BS me about WI climate and it not being a frequent problem (I've done the research). Still losing about a quart of oil/change, and now the high pressure hose coming into the power steering module is leaking. I rarely get above 20 MPG, now. I have reached a dilemma, do I buy a Honda, or use the $3k I have in GM Card earnings?!?!

Favorite Features

Paint seelant. My wife's 98 Taurus is faded. While I still have people ask me if my car is a 2001 or newer. Get the UV seelant, it's worth it!

Suggested Improvements

Build quality. I think I would be happy if someone would just fix the headlamps and give me a refund on the $150 I spent.
