2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
This car has been very good thus far.
The engine is strong and will move the
car well when pushed. The steering and
suspension are tight, although the car
will float at times over major
undulations in the pavement. The only
downside to having a motor with this
much torque is that it does have a
degree of torque steer. That and a few
squeeks and rattles (that only appear
on rough pavement) are the only real
issues that I have with the car. Other
than that, this car has been very good.
The engine is the first. The
horsepower is good to have when I need
to move. The heads up display and the
on board computer are also very good
for allowing me to keep tabs on
maintenance intervals (absolutely
The seats are not supportive enough for
performance driving. More side
bolstering would be a great
improvement. Reducing the torque steer
would be another. The last is the
instrument panel, it's not as need and
clean as in many other cars.
