2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this car used and I think it had around 45,000 on it. One month later I had to have the transmission replaced. Needless to say, I wasn't too happy, but I did end up getting a GM warranty when I purchased it. Now, about 11 months later, it sounds like it's acting up once again. Get an extended warranty, unless you don't plan on keeping it for very long. And like with all warranty work, the dealers like to take their sweet time getting your car repaired...
Smooth ride and it's just a nice lookin' car.
How about NOT putting crappy transmission in these cars. That would be pretty nice.
