Fun, looks good but poor quality

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 2dr Coupe
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.
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.
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.
