1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 2dr Coupe


Lots of power on demand for passing or
steep hills. The "head up" display is a
feature ALL cars should have. It is
convenient and more importantly, a
saftey feature. It does not interfere
with normal driving vision as it is
projected only slightly above the top
of the hood.
The only real problems have been the
Driver Info Computer, which resets
itself at times, and wind noise from
the side windows. Mazzei Pontiac
couldn't repair either of these
conditions after several repeat visits.
I'm sad to hear that GM will drop the 2-
door model when other manufacturers are
now producing 2-doors at an invigorated

Best Features

"Head up" display. Power of a big V-8, with small V-6 mileage. Great dash layout and redundant controls on the steering wheel. Muscular styling with an aggressive ("shark"-like) look.

Worst Features

Use softer leather and add more padding to the seats. Eliminate the noticable Magnasteer "whine" at speeds under 10 mph. Add passenger side heated seats. A remote fuel release would eliminate the need to buy a locking gas cap.
