Review of the 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

  • Fast and fun to drive, the Grand Prix is still too rough around the edges to steal the hearts of import buyers.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong supercharged V6, nimble handling, attractive gauges, easy-to-use controls, big trunk, fold-flat front-passenger seat.

  • Cons

    Build and materials quality still needs work, tight backseat, noisy engine, not enough storage or cupholders, no auto climate control.

Gm retired a powerhouse

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT2 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Bought the car in 2005 with 6k on it.It's now around 114k and still running splendidly.Never really had any major problems until last year when I accidentally hit a curb. Soon after had to replace tie rods, brakes found leaks in the coolant tank and power steering reservoirs. Got them all replaced at around 5k, now the car runs like smooth as silk. Even now i get a thrill out of an early morning acceleration rush. the a/c brings temperatures to polar regions in the peak Texan summer effortlessly. The car used to sheer through Michigan snows without so much as a sway. Many friends who had Hondas and Infinitis would ride with me because the stability of the Grand Prix in those conditions.

Have to keep an eye

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I have had an amazing experience with this car in terms of it's performance, but for you fellow owners, you have to be VERY AWARE of any issues with your power steering unit as well as any minute leakage that may be undetectable from your water pump. Watch your temperature gauge for any increase in heat and monitor your coolant levels. I just experienced the worse case scenario when driving on the freeway and suddenly getting the ping informing me to shut down AC due to engine overheating. 4200.00 later valves had to be replaced and head gaskets machined in addition to much more. Google make,model,year "engine overheating" for more info. Please be diligent about this.

Vehicle performance and reliability

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT2 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased my 2004 in 2008, from a local auction with 104k. It has 192k on it. I have gotten excellent service. Oil changed every 3k miles at dealer. All maintenance done at dealer, the usual wear. Travel south 3x yearly, without problems. Very reliable vehicle. GM stop making, why. Would or will purchase another and keep current.
