2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I'll start by saying that I've always
liked Pontiacs. My wife and I have
owned 6 between us. I put 200,000 mi
on an 86 Firebird. This is our second
Grand Prix. Loved the first, the
second became completly unreliable at
38,000 mi, when the transmission
suffered a catostrophic failure. Being
out of warranty, we paid our mechanic
$2000 to rebuild it. Pontiac will not
help with this cost because we used our
own mechanic not theirs. To make this
worse, our mechanic has not been able
to solve all the issues with the
transmission. Even after replacing it.
6 months and counting.
Style - inside and out
rethink the transmissions. I now know
2 people that got rid of their Grand
Prix due to tranmission issues.
