By nice car on
1998 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan
I got this car for free since it was no longer accommodating for my Dad (the very low seating position and getting in and out is difficult when your 72 years old and have hip/knee problems). Replaced all the brakes and rotors (all 4 were warped...no idea why). Put in about $200 for parts and did the work myself. Only problems now are non-functioning electric window on rear passenger side and an oil leak (one from sending unit and a rear main seal). I don't plan to fix these since I don't ride in the back seat (sorry passenger) and the oil leak will probably be expensive....I will fix it if it is just the oil sending unit....won't do it if it is the rear main seal. Got the car 9 months ago
heads up display; good handling; good power out of the 3.8L engine
I was a little displeased that my 1995 Chevy s-10 (4-banger) could rack up over 210,000 miles and still not leak a single drop of any fluid yet the Pontiac (at only 80,000) leaks oil.
