I'm hooked. But not Sold!!
By Mak on
2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I rent the GrandPrix just about every
other weekend. I love this car. It is
fun to drive and has fabulous
acceleration. I would love to buy
one. However, tend to keep a car for
more than 5 years and Ponitac's
reliability is unproven. (read
professional reviews as well as these)
I do not trust the car's alternator,
starter, or power train
(transmission). I would definately
recommend renting one and possibily
leasing one for 2 years or less. If
you buy get rid of this car at the 2 to
3 year mark, let somebody else be the
case study for Ponitac. As soon as a
see many 8 to 10 year old Grand Prixs
driving around I might buy one.
Acceleration and Handling.
A power train that is guaranteed for
100,00 miles. Current life about 50-
60K. A starter and alternator that
will last just as long. Current life
about 45K. Get one when GM management
and engineers get their act together
and to start to really compete against
Toyota and Honda.
