2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe GTP 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I ordered this car brand new to my specifications (Special Edition GTP, Navy Blue, Graphite Two-Tone Heated Leather, HUD, Moonroof, I also got an extra set of 3 Spoke Polished Aluminum Rims to go with it) I love this car and will keep it forever!! It has 17K miles (I barely drive it, it's my pride and joy!) It's been a great car to me! Very comfortable, enjoyable/head turning, reliable and it looks great doing so!


Best Features

Everthing in/on it!


Worst Features

Nothing whatsoever!

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe GTP 2dr Coupe (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

The GTP coupe is truly the last of the classic Grand Prix line.Nothing against sedans,but this is the best looking model since the '70s.At 3,500 lb it has the weight to match the 240 hp/280 ft.lb.supercharged 3.8L engine.Feels like the classic performance models of '60s.At 73,000 miles there's been no major problems except a dead battery and dry-rotted tires.Slight oil seepage but that happens at higher mileage. Gas mileage isn't that bad for a supercharged engine, using premium actually gives it better mileage, go figure. Nice leather interior, drivers seat is comfortable when finally dialed in. Overall a sharp, solid car.


Best Features

Favorite features include the supercharged V6 engine(that is great on the freeway),leather seats,Bose speakers,HUD,electrochromic rear view mirror, Torque-Star wheels.


Worst Features

There has been substantial problems with these models, but it's a GM quality issue with all divisions. This among other elements is why sadly olds and Pontiac are now gone. If you're lucky enough to get a good 2001 gtp coupe, maintain it well, it could a collectors item someday.

Review

It's great! I got everything under the hood squared away. High-mileage runs like a new car though. Cheesy interior. Oh and the pad under the glove box is slightly hanging down. I purchased it that way.


Best Features

the sun roof


Worst Features

new interior

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Adjustable drivers seat. cruise control is solid. suspension, axeles ball joints seem good. still a smooth ride at 165k miles spark plugs last 100k miles according to manual nice feature since they are a pain to replace.


Worst Features

More testing on durability. I know 3 or 4 people with the same vehicle with the same main problems, sending unit, transmission, carbon build up on the gas pedal, rotting gas tank, Parking switch. Need more cup holders and larger ones.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Excellent acceleration.many standard options such as cruise, sunroof, fog lamps,dual exhaust,comfortable leather interior and many compliments on having a sexy exterior.


Worst Features

Looks like power window motor problems are common with other owners.
