1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan


This is a fun car to drive, but a
nightmare to own. I purchaced this
ride with 49,000 miles in Aug. 2001 and
since replaced: water pump, raditor,
driver and pass-rear power window
motor, driver power seat motor, radio,
pass side wheel bearing assy., blower
motor, three fog lamps, two headlamps,
alternator, all four rotars/brake pads,
and finally a battery. Finally I got
everything in working order and one hit
in the rear from a F-150 later, it's a
total. Best thing that's happened to
the car since I bought it. Next car
will be a Nissan or Honda.

Best Features

Ride and acceleration. Style (although it's showing some age). Safety. Smooth shifting trans.

Worst Features

Overall reliability. Flat out embarrasing electrical and cooling system. Plastic interior. Overall poor vehicle integrity. Lots of engine for only 195 hp.(should be in the 240 hp. range without a supercharger).
