1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan GTP 4dr Sedan


Review

Horrendous inside. Window regulators breaks every year! $500 to repair each. Interior side of the doors get loose. The quality of assembly and the material is very, very bad. Also, had to change air-condition once and starter twice.


Best Features

Fast engine.


Worst Features

Get a quality interior and lasting window regulators.

Review

I absolutely LOVED my GT. Having 64k miles, only needed regular maintenance - even in tough AZ heat. Would definitely recommend it. Unfortunately it got totalled last week - will definitely miss it...


Best Features

Exterior styling - grace on the road - radio controls on steering wheel - size ample for tall people!


Worst Features

Gas mileage...

Review

Bought the car with 62k miles, have only driven it for 20k and have spent close to $2,000 in repairs already. New wheel bearing, intake manifold, electronic repair to ignition because it wouldn't release the key out the the hole, fixed wipers twice! When the car is running, I like the smooth ride, decent power and the roomy comfortable interior. The sound system is good, but the interior is made up of cheap plastic parts, much like the rest of the car. I would like the car a lot more had it not broken down so much. I'll never buy a pontiac again.


Best Features

Power, comfortable interior.


Worst Features

Too many to list, but the use of cheap parts in the car is its downfall. Use quality parts, improve reliability.

Review

I have loved owning and driving this car. Little things at 6 years like transmission sometimes stuck in Park (requiring an easy maneuver with a screwdriver, but still..), radio LCD's malfunctioning. But generally a very good, reliable vehicle, incredible sound system, very tight, responsive handling, low driving position, extremely "sticky" on the road. Some gaskets have needed work. I think the major Asian producers are indeed better for reliability, so it's time to switch, but I have really enjoyed this car. I know the GTP is noticeably peppier, but I have never felt short-changed for power in the GT.


Best Features

225 tires! It's hard to find such a large contact patch in other comparable vehicles.


Worst Features

Make the auto-climate control cycle from "defrost" to "floor and defrost," the next logical mode - as designed, it comes up as the last option - driving down the highway, pushing buttons...
