2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
We bought this car after trading in a xcab f150 ford truck,which i loved. But owning two trucks was not fuel wise! After looking for a better gas milage vehicle, but still didn't want a "granny car", this sporty looking car caught our eyes! The car has every option including a moonroof, except leather interior,i don"t like leather. The seats are horribly uncomfortable, especially the passengers.Drink holders are a joke!! Oh!!! Let"s don"t forget that great transmisssion. They"re so great i have to have it replaced for the "4th", i said "forth", time.This is not a car to keep. After 58,000 miles,trans went out, again at 82,000 miles, but returned witin days for more repairs! And now at 88.000
Car looks great, motor seems good. But i suggest a extended warranty. Thank god i bought one!! I would be in serious trouble without it.
Pontiac knows it has problems with the trans, as stated in so many statements above. So why not fix it!! Maybe when my car goes back to the dealership tomorrow(hopefully it will fall off the recker}, it might send up a flag!
