Review of the 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix

  • Though still an attractive choice because of its high performance, newer sedans from Honda and Nissan offer similar levels of power, as well as superior refinement and features.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Solid drivetrains, loads of features, fun to drive.

  • Cons

    Overly complex interior design, cheap-looking dashboard plastic and switchgear.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Grand Prix coupe has been dropped from the lineup, leaving the SE, GT and GTP sedans as the remaining models. SE versions now come standard with an AM/FM/CD stereo, rear reading lamps and a ski pass-through, while all Grand Prix models now offer a standard overhead console with vanity mirrors and assist handles. A new Limited Edition package for GT and GTP models is available; it includes a new rear spoiler, special wheels, embroidered floor mats, blue foglamps, a monotone lower fascia, unique badging and door sill plates, white-faced gauges and special seats with leather inserts and blue stitching. ABS brakes are now optional on SE and GT models.

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car with 71K miles on it in 2009. The clock currently shows 137K, and I am fairly impressed with it. Starts every time I put the key in, no matter how hot or cold it is. The good: plenty of power with the standard 3.8, decent sound system, good fuel economy with the size of the car, the overall look of the car is pleasing to the eye. The bad: needed intake manifold and gaskets right at 100K, a solenoid in the trans is going bad, low roof line so my head is almost rubbing the ceiling (I'm 6'1"), very picky about which alternator is in it. My overall opinion is this is a good car, and that takes a lot for me to say being a die-hard Mopar fan. It's old, and people still like it.




Roxanne, my grand prix

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I picked up my grand prix at a dealership that came to my town. she's white, with a loverly tint and 18" chrome rims. Her first big test was when I got a dui because my dumb ass was flying down a dirt road. I sideswiped a sign, lost control, and flew through a barbed wire fence into a deep field of mud. It sounded like it was supercharged for a minute till i found out i had to replace the water pump. After doing so it runs smooth and is still sexy and sleek.

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

The Grand Prix GT I purchased off- lease in June, 2006, had 33000 miles at purchase. It now has 55000 trouble- free miles. I have replaced only the battery and a heater fan switch. The styling is still one of the best even after five years! Fuel economy is 17 mpg in stop-and-go city and 30 mpg at 70 mph on the highway. I still feel great about this car and, every time I think about something newer, I change my mind and stay with this car. Too bad GM is dropping this model after 2008.




Great bang for the buck

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Fun car to drive and still turns heads four years later. Excellent power and handling for such a large car. Exceptionally reliable. In 70,000 miles, have only changed front brakes and a set of tires (oh - forgot about the water pump). Still gets 30 mpg on the road with a driver, three adult passengers and luggage.




Nice ride

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Drives really nice. Gas mileage isn't bad for a 3800 v6. Very nice inside, good trunk space. A good buy if you can get a good deal on it.




Nothing not to like about

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

We did a LOT of shopping around before we purchased this preowned Pontiac. This is everything we hoped to find in a preowned Pontiac...and more! It handles beautifully, esp. on ice/snow. Comfort is superb. The same day we bought it we went through a fast-food drive-thru & the lady working at the window was craning her head out to see what kind of car it was. She said "Oh I'm sorry; I'm just trying to see what kind of car this is." We told her & she said "WOW! This is NICE!" This car has been well-maintained & we see no reason that w/proper care/maintenance that it couldn't easily go to 200K. VERY happy customers here & would purchase another one in the future, no doubt about it.
