I bought this car in February of 2014 with 126xxx miles on it. Currently I have over 133xxx. This car is awesome. I love the interior cockpit design; it really makes the driver feel in charge. The heads up display in this car is by far my favorite feature. It's really hard to find those with other cars nowadays. The GM 3.8 is an amazing motor. Going down the highway I get 30 mpg easily, which is amazing given the size of the car. Whenever a friend of mine gets into my car, their immediate reaction is, "wow, this is a solid car".
Then again, these are people who drive Volkswagens and Hondas... They're shocked on how safe they feel in an American car.

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.

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.

I bought this car used in Sept 05 with 33,000 miles on it.
I am now looking to retire her with 220 plus.
Overall she's been very reliable but this car does have some design flaws.
Rainstorms are not its friend.
Water runs down into the AC system and I had to have the heater box replaced.
The blower began sticking on last year, got it fixed and didn't last.
The AC system has now burned up in it completely and I'm not getting it fixed.
The floors will also get soaked in heavy rain which is really strange.
The backseat is too cramped but the trunk is the size of Nebraska.
I have loved the power and good looks of this car though.

I bought my GP GT2 used with about 32,000 miles on it and now have 115,000.
I have not had to have any major service done on it, ever.
I have had to replace normal wear and tear items like brake pads or rotors, and have oddball issues that occur still.
The fuel pump seal is bad so when the car sits for a bit the fuel drains down the line.
Turn the key to ON a couple of times before going to START and you're fine.
Exhaust sound is outstanding, handling is great, and power is nice but a little lacking by today's standards.
Fit and finish is OK but kind of bland and cheap looking.
Overall though, an excellent purchase.
Well worth the money.

This is my second Grand Prix. Traded in 95 with over 200K (transmission started failing). Bought my 2004 with 33K in 2005. Now has 180K and engine still runs as smooth as when i purchased it. Transmission tends to slip when HOT. This car has had NO REPAIRS since purchased. I call my car THE ONE. She will never leave me stranded :) One down fall i will admit is the back seat. With a tall toddler and being tall myself i have to adjust my seat forward for him to have room. Great mileage since day one. I take great car of my car as well and hope to see 250K before i turn her in. Or maybe i'll keep her and buy a 2008 with low mile's. Love my Grand Prix :) wish they would make MORE!!!
