2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe GTP 2dr Coupe


Review

This is an absolutely fantastic car. My GTP is 9 almost 10 years old and runs like new with 132,000 miles. I had a full run of tests done on this car when my a/c went out and it had only three problems 1.a/c pump went dead 2. small oil leak due to old gasket on oil pan 3. Not exactly a problem yet but i was told to keep an eye on the CV boot. Fun to drive, starts just like a GM should, 0-60 somewhere in the mid 6's. pretty comfortable on long drives except the leather makes your back sweaty. got the a/c pump replaced and i am going to put a new oil pan gasket on myself during next oil change. This car I think could benefit from a 5 speed instead of a 4.


Favorite Features

Heads-up display looks cool and it is a great safety feature. Steering wheel mounted audio controls are a great addition. The classic GM interior that is sightly turned towards the driver is always awesome. good brakes. The heated seat I've come to love, at first I thought it was a bit much for me.


Suggested Improvements

Sadly the interior is pretty cheap. But I look at it as, yeah it is cheap but it is light there for making the car faster and consumes less fuel. And with the powerful 3.8 liter supercharged V6 anything that makes the car more fuel efficient is a welcome addition. 20-22 city 28-30 highway.

Review

Car has been very reliable. Car was originally a repo, got it for a steal. Have had this car for 2 years and still haven't/won't get bored with it. The roaring supercharger and exhaust make it all worth while. It's well worth using Premium Fuel. Red coupe, black leather, heated seat, Heads Up Display, fully loaded for a 2000. Even came with the original factory sticker. Bulletproof L67! Love the sound system! Plastic interior can be dull at times, but the red instrument panel lighting is awesome! If I could do it all over, I would. Sad to see Pontiac was discontinued.

Review

The 3.8 SC motor is under-rated at 240hp, unlike the Japanese who over-state their motor output. My stock motor on a Dyno put out 304 hp. If you dream of Audi S4 performance, but need reliability, look no further than the Pontiac GTP. These engines are bullet proof, except for the occasional intake gasket which although time consuming is not a terrible job. $500 tops at any shop. A Wards top ten engine mated to a reworked GM trans able to take the extra output.


Favorite Features

The GTP engine. It differs internally from the normal 3.8. The HUD display is pretty neat and the stock audio system isn't bad!


Suggested Improvements

CRAPPY interior. low rent economy interior the door panels will break, knobs, buttons all break, but thank goodness for ebay and a zillion do it yourself video's on you tube. I would invest in the upgrading the front brakes to the same vintage Impala calipers and hanger.

Review

Bought the car new. Still like the car, but expensive to maintain. Have had lots of minor problems and some major ones. Water leaks around doors and trunk, lumbar support switch replaced several times, Bose radio led disappeared, heater fan replaced, headlight plastic replaced, power window switches quit working, auto feature on rearview mirror does not work, fuel pump replaced, brake light wiring shorted out, etc. Major problems: Car vibrates when accelerating. Dealer replaced HUBS and axles and motor mounts three times as well as brake rotors. Alignment did not help. New tires did not help. New wheels did not help. I just live with the vibration now.


Favorite Features

I like the design of the car. The engine is powerful and if treated lightly will get good mileage on trips. The Bose sound system sounds good even if I have to guess at the station numbers. I can still see them in the heads up display.


Suggested Improvements

Better qualified dealership mechanics, ones that can fix a car and not just replace parts. Better quality interior and electrical systems. Like a lot of others said; the car needs better headlights.

Review

I have now owned my GTP for three + years now and I love it ... I have had to do some work to it.. Fuel pump resister, window motors, and upgraded the brakes... But all in all a fun car to own and a lot of fun to eat up all those v8 guys out there.. Have had a cooling system problem at like 190,000 but all to be expected Now working on upgrading the interior and putting in a gen 3 motor for more power...Would definitely suggest for a fun weekender that will get you to work on mon...


Favorite Features

Heads up display(no looking down when racing) Keyless entry, POWER, Sound System, Styling, POWER, Racing feel inside, 240hp still getting 24+mpg


Suggested Improvements

Wider wheels and tires, Brakes (upgrade), Strut tower braces ( at 100+ front struts sway, at @ 135 rear towers start to sway
