3.8 V6 solid as a rock
By Arrowhead on
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.
Handling. Style. Bulletproof motor in the non-supercharged 3.8 V6.
Quality of interior components. Parts pricing and availability.
