I'm broke

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

This car was good until 85k miles. I understand things need to be changed and replaced with a high mileage car like brakes oil filters fluids etc. My costs of repairs have been doubling since my 4th year of ownership. Transmission @120k 3 Master cylinders, brake lines twice, 3 EGR valves, ball joints, Emmisions problems like crazy, carbon build up on the gas pedal, sending unit replaced, electrical grounds rotting off, electrical switches failed early at 40k miles, rusting early 50k miles(once a week washing with a professional detail twice a year)hub assymbly at 83kmiles, wind sheild washer fluid rarely works in cold weather, door seals and locks freeze, thermostat replaced at 130k.




Miss the old grandpix

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Love the smooth and quite ride. Its was so quite i accidently tried to restart it a few times oops! My bad. but it never hurt the starter. I really miss the car and may get another after seeing one on the road today. I bought mine brand new in 2001 and replaced it in 2007 to buy my daughter a used car. She liked it and learned to drive in it but wanted something smaller. when i got rid off it i racked up 160,000. mostly highway miles to and from work. the only problem i ever had was one power window motor which i fixed myself.Never had to do a timing belt because it was chain driven and never had to replace any CV joints or driveshafts. Just normal wear and tear items.

Good on gas and has pep. Love the car. It was a one owner before I bought it so I don't know prior history. Engine light came on once because I forgot to replace the gas cap on it. I reset it by disconnecting the battery cable for a few seconds.

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Having been raised in a Pontiac family, I have owned more Oldsmobiles and Buicks. Bought this car for a reasonable price back in '05 with a GM certified warranty. This car has needed periodic maintenance per the owners manual of which absolutely no one follows. Doing the correct fluid flush's on time, the filters, injection cleaning, wires, plugs, brakes, tires. Its motor is bullet proof. I plan on keeping this car another 3 or 4 more years and I can most certainly expect with normal on time maintenance, it will perform as desired. It hauls quickly o-60, it handles incredible, has plenty of room. Some cheap interior stuff, but it just can be overlooked with its looks and reliability.




Ouch, it's the tranny

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I just took my GP GT into the dealership after hearing a bit of extra noise under the hood. They called me back saying that it appears that a bearing is going and pieces are floating around the transmission. Cost to repair it, $3400. Not too happy about GM build quality after this. The other issues I've had are "warped", distorted windshield, a spot in the paint that had been redone poorly at the factory, and a leaky rear window that had water sloshing underneath the rear seats onto the floor.
