1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe GTP 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought the car with 3 miles on it. I took it home and used a hair dryer to remove the Cloisone GTP emblems. They came off clean as a whistle. This car has the BEST styling of any Grand Prix ever. The supercharger is a work of art! I have basically kept up with Trans Ams and dusted off most Firebirds and Camaros. The HUD is imperative! I wish it had a 6 speed! But overall, this car is a real sleeper! Competent enough in the twisties and better than most off the line and rolling on!


Best Features

The 3800 has proven to be one of the best GM motors ever built.


Worst Features

6 speed

Review

Overall decent buy. I bought the car wit about 153,000 miles mostly highway miles. I now hav 160 and so far had a dirty EGR valve, bad O2 sensor, and a faulty crank shaft position sensor. The position sensor cost $160 to fix. The O2 sensor was a great opportunity to upgrade to a performance sensor $80. The car attaches itself to you. Great looking, and great open throttle sound bouth inside and out. Keeps up with many newer tuner cars!


Best Features

Engine sound, especially after a cold air intake ($280). Acceleration. Styling, and all right stock system.


Worst Features

Too much work just to change spark plugs. Seriously! It seema easy until you try. The plug is stuck unforgivingly to the boot. and the 3 plugs in the back are a pain to get to. When it rains all night, there is water in the car. Headlights are too dim.

Review

This car has been amazing since the date of purchase. Currently at 200,000 Km. I've only owned rear wheel drive vehicles before so going into a front wheel drive was going to require an adjustment but this car feels like it is RWD with power on tap and it never lets me down. Only repair issue was the front end snapped ($2000 repair job from GM) but that's been it for 6 years of ownership. Not like the average GM vehicle, brakes actually last for a long time, no head gasket issues, transmission doesn't kick, interior plastic parts haven't snapped off yet!! Another great thing is the amount of aftermarket parts for this car (projector headlights, body skirts, spoilers...)


Best Features

The power baby!! only states 200 hp, I think thats a lie, it feels much more powerful. The body styling (I've done a slight GTO mod, added functional intake hood scoops) The exhaust note is awesome too, I can always tell when another grand prix has passed my home by the sound of the exhaust.


Worst Features

The stereo has to be amplified, its so weak, too bassy and no treble. The instrument cluster is starting to dim to such a point that its hard to see it at night. Keyless entry died very soon into ownership, battery replacement was not the issue, actual sensor inside vehicle has stop working.

Review

This car has been good so far with only a few major repair jobs. I love the power of the engine and the quick acceleration. Even with over 100k miles on it the car still pulls strong.


Best Features

Power and acceleration, Supercharger, heated seat, HUD, radio controls on steering wheel, TCS


Worst Features

Manual transmission! Better head lights, more responsive brakes, less cheap plastic
