1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan

Review

This is a fun car to drive, but a nightmare to own. I purchaced this ride with 49,000 miles in Aug. 2001 and since replaced: water pump, raditor, driver and pass-rear power window motor, driver power seat motor, radio, pass side wheel bearing assy., blower motor, three fog lamps, two headlamps, alternator, all four rotars/brake pads, and finally a battery. Finally I got everything in working order and one hit in the rear from a F-150 later, it's a total. Best thing that's happened to the car since I bought it. Next car will be a Nissan or Honda.

Favorite Features

Ride and acceleration. Style (although it's showing some age). Safety. Smooth shifting trans.

Suggested Improvements

Overall reliability. Flat out embarrasing electrical and cooling system. Plastic interior. Overall poor vehicle integrity. Lots of engine for only 195 hp.(should be in the 240 hp. range without a supercharger).
