by riker93 on Mar 24, 2013 Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe
I just bought this car Feb. 8, 2013, so I haven't had it long enough to report any major problems. It runs great, and was well taken care of by previous owner. It looks almost new, no rust and the engine is so quiet. It handles very well, and takes off quickly. Gas mileage isn't bad, so I'm not spending too much there. It's got all the options I could think of, so as long as I continue to take care of it, I'm hoping to get a lot of miles out of it.

This was my first car, and it was a great first car.
Unfortuneatly, I was rear ended and ultimately had the car totaled.
The time that I had it though, was very enjoyable.
First, a V-6 engine allows for this car to be borderline over the top with power, but that didn't bother me.
The problem with all of the power was that the car averaged about 18 mpg.
The 12 gallon tank also forced me to have to fill up more often than I would have liked.
I had leather seats and they were very comfortable.
It was very easy to carry 4 passengers in the car.
While the doors were huge, it allowed much easier access to the back seat.

I've had 1 major and a few minor problems with my coupe. I'm currently the second owner
and bought it when it had 84,000 miles. Unfortunately the engine blew which was likely the result of poor driving from the previous owner or myself when showing off at times :(
Since then it has been replaced with another engine with 30,000 miles less then the previous one, and I must say this has been the best performance car I've driven! And I've driven 15 to 20 different cars in my time. Handling is great,has lots of room for a coupe, and has ability for modifications on a smaller budget. Gas is average,but factory tail lights are poorly made and may leak in time. Some interior detail is poorly made.
The Grand Prix gets more muscle for '99 with low-restriction air-induction components giving the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 five more horsepower, to 200. This engine is standard on the GT (sedan and coupe) and optional on the SE sedan. A traction control indicator and on/off button are now standard on GTP models. Minor revisions are in order inside, with front-door courtesy lamps and a six-speaker sound system now standard, and an eight-speaker Bose audio unit and OnStar mobile communications system optional. Outside, a rear deck spoiler is standard on the GT model, and two colors have been added to the 1999 exterior paint chart.
