2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Review

I originally bought a 99 gtp that went 154000 miles before a deer got it. Couldn't bare to pay close to 20k for an new econobox, so bought the last of this generation in 2007 for half that. It is a comfortable muscle car. Acceleration and long distance cruising are its forte. Handling is okay but sloppy when really pushed. The transmission does this clunk at times when starting from a stop?? The "leather" is more like vinyl and the rear seats are not adult comfortable over the long haul. The hvac setting doesn't work in the first 2 positions. The brakes fade under repeated hard use. A 5 speed [m]transmission would have made this car much quicker. 15 mpg city 26 mpg hwy. Feels solid but fat.

Favorite Features

Looks, Acceleration, practical. Value. Thus far reliable. Bose sound with the steering wheel controls. HUD. Decent fuel economy for a big powerful car [ I have a heavy foot ] No snob appeal. Decent handling. Space for size.

Suggested Improvements

5 or 6 speed [a/m] transmission. Better brakes. Tighter suspension. Quicker steering. I'd prefer cloth to cheap leather. The GPs after this generation are not good looking and drive heavier? What am I saying Pontiac is dead, but this was one of their best vehicles.
