1997 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 4dr Sedan


This is the first time I have ever done a review but I wanted people to know that Pontiac Grand Prix was a blast. I purchased the car in 1998 with 30,000 miles on it. I have never had any problems other than replacing the alternator several times and the usual brakes and oil. Last week the car was at 323,800 when the car finally gave up. I have owned the car for 12 years going from coast to coast in it for family vacations. It will be truly missed.

Best Features

Responded fast and fun to drive on freeway. Traveling over the years this car was comfortable and handled well in corners.

Worst Features

Can think of any for improvements other than it kept going.

Congrats Marlene! I owned mine for 12+ years as well, and bought it same year you did. Mine had 25,000 miles on it, and I put another 206,000. I loved this car, and I too will miss it. Sounds like you had even better luck than me regarding mechanical repairs. I'm looking at the 2012 Ford Focus now as a replacement. What did you buy?
