1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Consistent problems with this well beyond wear and tear. Other owners of Grand Prix have been very satisfied overall, not I. Here's a PARTIAL list: 2 batteries; 1 alternator; 1 condensor; 1 compressor; 2 o2 sensors; 2 fuel filters; 1 steering gear bushing; 1 fuel regulator; 2 heat selector resistors; 1 stereo; 3 wiper arms; 2 sets of spark plugs rated at 160 000 kms I have 114 000; the rocker panels have rusted been repaired and rusted through again; windshield is separating from the car and there is a leak in the tunk so water has left it mildewy and now it is behind the back seat. A lot for 3 years of owning. Expensive.

Favorite Features

3.8 is responsive and strong. 5 year cooling is a bonus. It's a smooth quiet ride and location of devices is driver friendly. A beautifuly sleek car but needs a 3000 a year budget beyond gas and car washes. I just replaced the brakes at 112 000 kms, they're rated at 80 000- not bad.

Suggested Improvements

Pay more attention to making sure all cars leave the factory in 100% perfect condition not most.
