My previous car was a 1997 Bonneville, Series II 3.8L V6. I have to say, that with this new Grand Prix, I felt so secure with the purchase because the engine is just exceptionally dependable and easily modified. I'd never owned a GP like this one, and so far I absolutely love it. Easy to maintain, smooth shifting, and somewhat powerful(could use some mods though). I can't wait for dual exhaust, short RAM intake and my new hood. I have to say that the shifty squeaking/clicking I get in the steering column is something I could do without though. The factory sound system is more than I expected, with more than enough bass to keep me happy for a while.
Sound system, ease of maintenance, aggressive handling, stylish interior
Glove box is way too small. Put another gadget into the base models that don't have TCS so that button isn't just a waste of space and something for your friends to ask about. I could use an "Air Restriction Indicator" to let me know if my engine's getting enough air.
