1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 3.8 Supercharged from North America
To date low cost of ownership, good fun to drive and quite practical too!
Heating blower motor replaced (by dealer under warranty) - I did not see a problem 27000 miles.
Power window motor replaced (by dealer under warranty) - I did not see a problem 10000 miles.
Lenses on front headlights came off - put back in place successfully with white caulk - 40000 miles.
Passenger foot-well filled with rainwater once (2inches) 55000 miles - not happened since.
Tensioner on serpentine belt 'eroded' - nothing left of rubber - replaced tensioner and belt after 65000miles.
Occasionally get weird sound on CD/radio - especially when wet (!)
A/c not cold @ 70000 miles - probably needs recharging.
Car has great trunk space - can get a mountain bike in it with the wheels removed. All can be locked in the trunk.
Performance is great - seriously fast if you floor it.
If you are easy on the gas can get 25mpg on the highway.
Can seat 5 adults fairly comfortably.
Handles really well in the New England weather.
Seats are OK, but a little thin in front.
Don't like the 'pleather' on the doors where the seats have real leather.
Sports car, but quite practical.
Cheap to insure in MA compared with Japanese and German cars with better performance - saved overall. Wife has a 2000 Nissan Maxima with more mileage and more problems...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
