Ignition Key Removal
By S Hook on


1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 2dr Coupe


I have been having problems removing the
ingition key. The problem turned out to
be a faulty switch on the shift lever.
The switch was a part of the gear lever
and could not be replaced independently.
This problem has a $425 price tag to
repair. I was told it was a problem that
is common but there is no bulletin or
recall. Something like a switch should
be designed to be replaces on it's own
and not as a part of a complete
assembly. Automobile repair costs are
a;ready high and a design like this is
just another reason to look at Japanese

Best Features

Great motor with impressive fuel economy. Fun to drive and a very nice body design.

Worst Features

Failure of little things has been an issue. I purchased a second party extended warranty to insure I would limit my expenses. I would like to drive this car for 200,000 miles but the little things may cause me to look at a Japanese Import.
