1995 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP from North America
Just walk away..
I made the mistake of buying this car as a totaled vehicle. My parents own an auto body shop, so fixing it wasn't the problem. For a long time I blamed a lot of the engine problems on the probability the car frame got tweaked in the accident. Now I don't.
Power steering pump.
I go through batteries fast.
Tires wear quickly.
Replaced breakers, rotors and calipers,
Replaced a strut.
Replaced the door handles 4 times or tried to self fix.
The door locks won't work.
One window won't roll down, replaced/fixed power window mechanism.
Antenna stuck in the upright position.
Replaced thermostat twice.
Replaced the intake gasket.
Air conditioning went out twice (not fun in the summer with leather seats and shorts).
I'm praying to make it to 200,000 miles.
I've put A LOT of money into this car when I should have just bought a new one.
It's a beautiful car, handles well, and looks great.
It used to have awesome power and acceleration but didn't handle well in the snow (driver error, maybe?). It's roomy for a two door and the back seat sits great. The doors are awfully heavy, though.
I'm bittersweet toward Pontiacs. I don't want to own another one, but for the price it's a hard temptation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
