Used 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Consumer Reviews
I bought my Pontiac Grand Prix safetied almost a year ago at 246xxx kms. I’ve had a couple issues since Including the elbow hose under the hood which was causing it to spray coolant out and my car would overheat. Got that fixed and since then I’ve only had to replace a wheel bearing and my gas line. It’s been very reliable and surprisingly good on gas. Something to look out for on these cars is the transmissions. On the base model (which I have) they are better, but I’m at 274xxx kms right now and my engine has been on and off starting to clunk for the past 20k......also is doing this thing when I reach around 80mph is starts rocking back and forth and almost seems like it’s bogging, but after accelerating a little it stops. It’s very easy to fix things on these cars, and I’d say they’re good starter cars.
I bought this car with 194,000 miles and now it has 218,450 miles. The radio and back right window motor was replaced around 100,000 miles. Car runs smooth and it starts pretty good in cold conditions. One problem I have had while owning it is the dash rattling. Whenever this car goes up my driveway which is dirt here in virginia, everything starts to rattle. this car is in almost perfect condition.
