2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Bought the 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT which was the third pontiac that I purchased since 1998. The 2002 Grand Prix was a trade in. The Lower Intake Gasket went out on it at 15000. It went out again at 30000 and again at 115000. The car brakes tend to wear prematurely averaging 30K on brakes and rotors. The AC/Heat Knobs tend to break prematurely. The tires goodyear 225/60R16 last about 30K per set. I've had to replace speed sensors, the fuel line rail, the rear suspension, and wheel nut caps that crack easily upon removal.

Best Features

The car is still a fun car to drive and rides smoothly, is good on gas 20/26, but is an expensive car to maintain costing me over $1000 per year.

Worst Features

Change out Intake gaskets; fuel line connectors; AC/Heat knobs; replace wheel nut caps, increase size of wheel rotors; and increase change size of wheels. Get rid of a lot of plastic parts that have to be replaced frequentlyu.
