1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Overall, I've been pretty satisfied with my Grand Prix, but its reliability has been disappointing. Always - rear bushings produce a slight grinding noise on sudden/bumpy stops 30k - power steering broke down when making a tight turn in a parking lot 40-45k - gas gauge started acting up; every 3-6 months, the stereo display scrambles 55-60k - alternator went bad; friend had same prob around same mileage 70k - seal around the oil pan leaks at the rate of 1/2 qt every 3k mi.

Favorite Features

exterior design, power, handling, comfort

Suggested Improvements

Fix the alternator problem, and overall reliability.
