2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

The Supercharged 3.8 Series II engine is very reliable. 100,000 miles and the engine is flawless, but the rest of the car started falling apart. The Supercharger is not a serviceable item, so when the bearing goes out you have to replace the whole thing ($600 rebuild w/ installation). Both front wheel- bearings needed replacing. Power- steering pump went out. All within 10,000 miles of 100k. The car is definitely worth keeping and repairing. The GTP is the only way to go. If you are considering a Grand Prix, only get one w/ a Supercharger (20% more horsepower than the GT, and it shows). Before buying one, listen to the supercharger, if you hear a grind, get it replaced.


Best Features

Power! Zoom. Traction Control great on ice. Car accelerates quick on slippery roads. Bose Speakers! OnStar was great, but was an Analog system that wasn't upgradeable. Forced to disable OnStar.


Worst Features

Seats that hold on to you. Interior plastics are garbage (ie cup-holder). Add a Recirculate button for the HVAC. Stiffer suspension. Better stereo to compliment the Bose speakers (Factory stereo doesn't do the Bose justice).

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I've owned a Jaguar and a BMW and this is still a far better car. It has timeless styling and the dashboard isn't boring at all. I bought it four years old and have only done routine maintenance and replaced the brakes. It is a great car. Mine is a black GTP. The supercharged 3800 is excellent, powerful, and still gets great mileage. Buy one if you have the chance, but I would only go for the GTP.


Best Features

Heads up, information center, pretty much everything.


Worst Features

The back seat is kind of uncomfortable

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Great car, with highway mileage at 65 mph 30 mpg, 24 in town, only small problems. Great to handle on sharp curves, hugs the road. Same battery that came with the car, now have 80,000 miles on it hard to wash though always leaving dirty spots in the creases.

Review

I bought this car new from the dealership in Golden, CO. Had 1,000 miles on it, was the general managers car. It has been a great car and very reliable. Oxygen sensor went out under warranty replaced no charge. Mas Air Flow Sensor, fuel filter and power steering hose replaced at 80,000 miles by dealer. Just replaced 1 fuel injector at 105,000 miles myself as well as transmission fluid and spark plugs. Car is loosing a little coolant through leaks I believe in manifold or head gasket. Window problems intermittently but working fine currently. Had a problem with original rotors shimmying when hot at 78,000 but no problem since I replaced them. Paint still looks good.


Best Features

Fun to drive, comfortable, great sound system - Bose, good gas mileage, leather is holding up well. Nice to drive with the sun roof open.


Worst Features

Have heard about problems with engine gaskets, otherwise no concerns at this time.

Review

Ive had this car for a month and I absolutely love it! I bought it with 28k on it so its practically brand new. I was really hesitent to get a car this big but Im so happy I did. I went from having a 4 cylinder to a 6 so Im not used to the gas mileage yet but it doesnt seem to be using that much. The car looks awesome and is so fun to drive! Im hoping to have this car for a long long time.


Best Features

Fun to drive, feels really fast, looks great


Worst Features

Cheap plastic interior pieces crack and break easily.
