1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan

Review

Very reliable car. I have over 100,000 miles on it. Only major trouble was with intake manifold gasket warping (I hear this happens a lot with the 3800). I got GM to pay for the part, with plenty of complaining. just a few minor problems. Keyless entry when new had very short range, now it is even shorter because it doesn't work. I tried to get a new remote for it, cars computer would not let mechanic program it( I refused to let them hook it up to the dealers computer to find out why, because it would have cost $75 over and above the cost of the remotes). Ignition switch shorted out. I could not get the key out, or the car out of park.

Favorite Features

I have a black GT. Looks great (when clean. For over 100,000 miles the car has always started (I live in a cold climate, WI).

Suggested Improvements

GM builds a car cheap. I would be willing to pay extra for a total quality built car. That is why my other car is a 2000 Acura 3.2 TL.
