Bad engine!

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

First I owned the car for a month, had to replace the engine because oil wasn't going to one of the rods. Now, 2 years later, it's sitting waiting to be sold for the same problem. Had about 100,000 on both engines. Had it in the shop all the time, it was never the easy things that were wrong either. I would not buy this car again.




Fun car, hindered by gm

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

The 3.8L makes this a pretty fun car to drive, however, as a GM "cookie cutter" car, it suffers from subpar engineering and build quality. Panels like to fall off, something that could've been prevented with a better plastic. The powertrain is generally reliable, but that's about it. You can eek pretty good mpg out of this car, but it's a bit of a pain to do so. If great MPG is your priority, look elsewhere, but don't worry about this car burning holes in your pocket.




Been good since 140k

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

Great car. I've owned for a couple years and haven't had too many issues. Currently at 181K miles and I may need some new belts, but other than that, the engine is a haus. Feels like I couldn't do anything other than crash it to stop this thing from running. Best car for the money if you don't mind riding in a pontiac. Took it on a 3k roadtrip in the 170K range, and it made it there and back with only a wheel bearing that needed replaced. Regular problems/maintenance with this car, bearings, brakes (better than most cars), rear windows, some sensor problems, and from my experience and noting others, usually tranny needs to get rebuilt at some point during the life of the car.




Great car

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

Great car, still own it and I am at 227,000 km, runs like a charm still. Only regular maintenance required and a yearly oil spray for the Canadian winter to prevent corrosion. Only problem I've had is that my seat has broken




One of the best car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

After totaling my 2003 Ford Explorer Limited V8 I was looking for a family sized sedan that was good on gas considering that I spent $120.00 on gas a week on my Explorer. When I first saw the grandprix I absolutely loved it. The aggressive front end, flared fenders, and its aggressive stance. I purchased it with 125,000 miles and it drove like it had 25,000 miles on it. Performance is on point, handling is precise, BUT fuel economy was extremely poor. I spent almost the same amount of money on gas as i did with my Explorer. I realize that the vehicle saves gas with 89 and above fuel grade than the lower grade 87. It even improved the performance. Overall this is the best car i ever had!




Love my gt

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

I bought my GT 4dr in Sept. of 2001. All 165,000 miles are mine. I have all service records, the car has been excellent. The only problem has been two power window motors, the dash cluster went out and had to replace the fuel sensor in the gas tank. Other than that all has been routine. I still own and love to drive the car.
