It's been a good car overall
By Duke on
1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan
I got this one with 62,000 miles on it and have 208,000 now. I've put several alternators on it and two batteries. Just had the struts replaced as well. I've enjoyed the fuel economy as it has an 18 gallon fuel tank that allows me to drive for 500 miles when on road trips with work before needing to fill up. Gas guage broke a year after I got it, so I just fill up every 350- 400 miles to be safe. I got 224,000 miles out of an '89 Grand Am, so these cars can go for a while if you take care of them. Also have an oil leak and did with the Grand Am too. That's been my biggest complaint along with the alternators.
The red paint job. This car is older, but still looks awesome when cleaned up I think waxing it 4-5 times a year the first few years has really helped keep its shine.
