1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan


At 6 yrs and 83k miles, I have a few
more problems to list. Now the power
door lock actuator (front, passenger)
works when it feels like it
($52/part). The clear portion of the
other headlamp fell off ($72/part).
Dealer tried to BS me about WI climate
and it not being a frequent problem
(I've done the research). Still losing
about a quart of oil/change, and now
the high pressure hose coming into the
power steering module is leaking. I
rarely get above 20 MPG, now. I have
reached a dilemma, do I buy a Honda,
or use the $3k I have in GM Card

Best Features

Paint seelant. My wife's 98 Taurus is faded. While I still have people ask me if my car is a 2001 or newer. Get the UV seelant, it's worth it!

Worst Features

Build quality. I think I would be happy if someone would just fix the headlamps and give me a refund on the $150 I spent.
