2008 Pontiac Grand Prix 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


I've owned an '86 Park Ave and a '92 Olds 88 prior to buying this car--both with 3800 engines. The 3800 is solid. My car has 31,000 mi. I look forward to keeping this car for the next 15 years. I bought the car used a year ago and have put 6,000 mi. on it. There's only 2 problems: the keyless remote needs new batteries and the rear seats could use a little more leg room. However, on the pro side, the car handles great in the city and on the highway. Plenty of power in any situation. I'm 6 ft. tall and feel fine in the driver's seat. Some folks grip about the interior finish--I think it's fine. Overall, I still love the car after a year and would recommend it.

Best Features

Leather steering wheel, powerful proven engine, radio has good sound for being stock

Worst Features

Antenna (behind the radio) is frayed. This is a simple fix.
