1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan

Review

I drove this car for 220k miles, then handed it over to my 16-year old daughter. She is now 19, the car has 265k miles, and it drives great. Spent $1,900 to put a new transmission in it at 185k. Other than that it's been relatively expected maintenance for more than ten years. What a great engine. You could probably shoot it with a shotgun and it would still run smoothly. After 250k, the interior began gradually deteriorate, but how can I complain. I went out and bought a 2003 Grand Prix to replace it, and have already put 190k miles on that one.

Favorite Features

Drives GREAT! Engine is powerful and reliable. No car payment for 7 years - priceless! Exterior Still looks good (original finish).

Suggested Improvements

Specific Dial settings for AC/heat make it hard to get the temp just right (I need a setting between 1 and 2). Pontiac obviously saved some money on the cheap plastic knobs and buttons and the interior finishes.
