1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 2dr Coupe
Great car to drive. Average in snow, good in rain. Have had some mech. problems after 60000 miles. Supercharger bearings need replacement;appox. $500 to do myself, close to $2000 for a shop to fix. Power window switch replaced;$80. Automatic dimming rearview mirror stopped working;haven't replaced. Comfortable for 4 adults. Decent gas mileage if not driving too hard.
This car moves along very well with the supercharger. Instant response from gas pedal. Heads up display bothered me the first few days I had car but since then I got very used to it. Car handles excellent in dry conditions and O.K. in inclement weather. Love radio controls on steering wheel.
Seat belt tends to dig into my neck. Steering wheel pulls from giving too much gas on takeoff. Typical for front wheel drive cars.
