Great looking car, and in 2004, it
still looks as contemporary as the new
cars coming out. I always get
compliments on the on the exterior
styling. I'm somewhat disappointed on
the MPG, I've been gettting around 23
mpg on the road and I set the cruise at
72 MPH. A few squeaks, but nothing
unusual for a domestic vehicle. The
factory sound system is better than any
car I've ever been in, and I've worked
in the car business for the last 12
This car is great for the money. I got
this when I graduated from college and
it did not cost me and arm and a leg.
Getting a new car hasn't really crossed
my mind. The Grand Prix has been
treating me well for the last 3 years.
I have made frequent, long-distance,
weekend trips with the car. It is
comfortable and gets good gas milage.
Passengers have noted how big and roomy
the back seat is. I really like the
hatch in the backseat, that opens up
into the trunk. I normally have a ton
of sports equipment sitting in the back
seat and this makes it really easy to
toss into the trunk when I need the
backseat for passengers.
I totaled my 97 Camry and needed a car
fairly fast, saw it, liked it, bought
it. Fit and finish is pathetic, there
is plenty of horses when I need them,
however that comes at a fuel premium.
Window motors, window switches, cup
holder broken from normal use, Drivers
window regulator, all had to be
replaced. Leather is complete junk,
sure if you dont sit in it, it lasts.
I am meticulous with my car
maintenance, however the engine makes
ticking noise, burns oil, and the
breaks squeek constantly, even when
they are new. It's a shame Detroit
can't figure out how to build a car
like the Japanese, the Sweeds or the
Germans. Im selling for a new Volvo.
Acceleration, Dealer is great
Fit and Finish, use some quality parts,
cars arent cheap and you can surely get
a better built car for less money
I bought my 99 Grand Prix GT mainly
because of it's good looks. Still
looks good! I got the four door
model because I thought I might have a
family one day. I have been pretty
much happy with my GT. The
trunk leaked, but they fixed that.
transmission started slipping on me
after the 3 year warrenty was up. But
recently I complained so much that
they fixed it,(it had a bad throdel
body in the tranny) even though it was
out of warrenty.(5 years old, 36,000
miles). Now that the tranny is fix,
(what a relief!) I'm happy. My GP
seems to be put together pretty good
for the most part. Hope it stays that
way. It has been really good for an
Power stays on to put windows up or
listen to the radio after you shut the
car off. V6 power, turn signals sound
if you forget to cancel them, controls
on the stearing wheel, interior
lights staying on/come on when you
enter/exit car, a great feature is
that the car locks automaticly
too many controls on the turn signal
stock, I still am not
comfortable/smooth with the windshild
wiper opperation, would like to be
able to turn the head lights off at
times, wish it had a folding back seat
or 60/40 folding back seat instead of
the pass thru in the back seat
I purchased this new with every
possible option minus the CD changer.
It is a low miles car (6K per year).
The only problems have been window
motor (couple times) and poorly
operating seat heater. It does have a
rattle in the dash. Engine performance
and handling is great. I do wish that
I got the supercharger in hindsight.
Interior capacity is very spacious, and
there are no complaints here. I would
definitely buy from Pontiac again.
With all of the creature comforts,
engine power, exterior styling, good
reliability, and relatively low price,
you cannot beat this car.
