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


Review

We had a GTP 4dr with the supercharged V6. It had all the options. Bought it used with 100000 miles and didn't have a thing go wrong with it. I only had to do routine maintenace, get new brakes, and a align it. The ride was good and the interior was appealing. These are great, stylish cars.


Best Features

the engine performance, heads up display, and all the options.


Worst Features

seats could be more comfortable.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After totaling my 2003 Ford Explorer Limited V8 I was looking for a family sized sedan that was good on gas considering that I spent $120.00 on gas a week on my Explorer. When I first saw the grandprix I absolutely loved it. The aggressive front end, flared fenders, and its aggressive stance. I purchased it with 125,000 miles and it drove like it had 25,000 miles on it. Performance is on point, handling is precise, BUT fuel economy was extremely poor. I spent almost the same amount of money on gas as i did with my Explorer. I realize that the vehicle saves gas with 89 and above fuel grade than the lower grade 87. It even improved the performance. Overall this is the best car i ever had!


Best Features

Its aggressive looking front end, flared front and rear fenders, and its low sitting stance. I call it my mini sports car. (mini as in mini engine) lol


Worst Features

Of course the fuel economy. I went bankrupt from spending so much on gas. The front seats are very uncomfortable. Its like sitting on cardboard with absolutely no support. And lastly a better stereo system. Overall i love it!

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


Review

This was the biggest waste of money I have ever seen. I will never by a GM product again. I had to get the intake gasket replaced twice which was over $1200 each time. The headlights, heat, air conditioning, and windows stopped working. It burned anti-freeze and I had to replace blown-out tires 3 times. NEVER buy this car!!


Best Features

it has air bags and comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Scrap this car and start over!

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


Review

I have owned my 2001 Pontiac GTP 4 door sedan since it was new. It has been a very fun car to drive, and I never grew tired of looking at it. Now one has to step up to a Buick to get the Heads Up display which I use all the time. It had a leaky manifold gasket at 74 K miles which I fixed immediately and so far I have not had the bigger problem with a failed head gasket which some of the GM Dex Cool engines have experienced. I have had to replace some wheel bearings in front, steering gear, and other suspension components. I still drive it to work daily and I have had a mechanic offer to buy it. We drove it in the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise this summer. It gots lots of smiles.


Best Features

Supercharger is responsive, quick, with little torque steer. Heads Up display is also very useful. I like the aerodynamic styling as it contributes to the good gas mileage as well as good looks. I am averaging 22.5 mpg overall which I consider quick good for a performance vehicle.


Worst Features

Needs passenger seat heater.

Review

To the idiot writing the first review: brakes,tires and ROTORS, are normal wear items on any vehicle. My Grand Prix is the best purchase I have ever made. The Pontiac 3.8 L engine is by far the best production engine ever made. If it is well mantained it will never wear out. I've had mechanics tell me they've seen 3.8's with the oil run out of them and seize not even need new rings! They run strong with excellent fuel economy and power - what more is there to want??


Best Features

Power, performance, perfectly smooth ride. I run mine every week at over 100 mph without a rattle, shimmy or shake - and mine has over 100k miles!
