1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe
500 miles after buying it the belt broke. Didn't have any problems until the lights started going out ( ignition harness ) and most recently a thermostat which is minor. I think the washer fluid motor is shot now also but it is another nickel. I also have to recharge the A/C every year but at only 30 bucks or less its cheaper than fixing it. I have done all these fixes myself with the help from auto forums.
The gas pedal!
GM really needs to beef up this 3.8 and make it more reliable. The foriegn makes are leaps and bounds ahead of GM in the HP, reliability and quality. Way too many basic quality issues. Paint chips to easy, bad weather stripping, interior parts loose or coming loose.
