2002 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)
I bought a 2002 Grand Prix SE. I do
alot of long distance road trips, and
this seemed to be the ideal car for the
bucks.Very comfortable on the long
runs, with plenty of cargo room. This
SE model has the 3.1 engine, which is
pretty sluggish with 3 average persons
in the car. Engine noises a month after
my puchase( needs pistons ). Thats a
bad start, for a car loan. I should
have bought the GT with the 3.8L, or
just stayed away from Pontiac all
together.Stay away from the SE models.
I love the keyless entry, and all the
power options. Also, I like the split
comfort control, and the Power seats.
The car needs a few suggested
improvements. Deeper cup holders, re-
design the emergency brake, better rear
window defoggers,better speakers, and
make the 3.1L a much better engine with
more horsepower.Extend the engine
warranty on the Grand Prix SE.
