I am a high school student and needed a good reliable car to get me around. I was pleasantly surprised when I could get a reliable car that looks good. So far nothing but good for me and I've owned it about 7 months. The power and handling are better than expected. My transmission is starting to have a problem, but for 155,000 miles stuff like that can be expected. I did just have to have the bearings replace and new rear struts, also my air conditioner has been out. Other than that great buy.
This car was actually noted as a "flood damaged" vehicle and I bought it from a private owner. Excellent and reliable car. Had its few minor problems. The 3.1 V6 is an excellent engine. I've put about 16,000 miles on it so far and it's still going! I recommend it to anyone who wants to buy one with the 3.1 engine!
As a college student, I have always driven "economy" cars. But when I got the Grand Prix, it was the first time I had an economy car that looked GOOD. It has good gas mileage, plenty of power, looks great, is very roomy for a coupe, and could probably last forever *knock on wood* Mine currently has 110K and is still running great.
