1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2dr Coupe


I love this car. And that's why it hurts so much. Drives great, comfortable, good power, decent mileage. Fun to drive. Would keep it if it didn't cost so much and so often to repair. Babied, always maintained and still have multiple repairs. Steering gear ($1k to replace) goes every 30k. Leaks oil, regardless of regular 3k oil changes. "Ghost" problems in the electronics that don't log into the computer and the dealer can't fix. Originally planned to keep it for many more years, but trading it in while it still is worth something. A gm guy to the core from the first car I ever owned, this car changed my mind. Love the car, but have to give it up. Will not buy a gm this time. A real shame.

Best Features

Head-up display (going to miss that!), tight suspension, excellent look, steering wheel controls, automatic air conditioning, overhead console lights, bose stereo, roomy interior and cool red dash with trip computer.

Worst Features

Reliability. Car began to fall apart around 39k. Steering problem still not fixed, Sis has a 2005 gp and the gear went on that car too. Otherwise, it was a nice car.
