1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 3.8 from North America
I will never purchase from GM again
I bought the car with barely 90000 miles on it and everything worked fine. The features were great and it looked awesome. I have had it for less than one month and everything has gone wrong. It has terrible gas mileage, less than what websites say. The electronic display for how much fuel you have used and how mnay miles you have left continues to not turn on. When you start the car, it takes about a half an hour to turn on. There was recently a short in the car and now whenever I turn it on, it usually does not turn back on. The power windows will work just fine, but then they will roll down sometimes and they will not go up at all. Don't roll them down when it is cold outside. I hope that I never purchase another car from GM again. The car looks great, but it does not operate worth crap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

How can you blame the manufacturer for an 8 year old car with over 90,000 miles on it?
You seem to have expected a NEW car!!!

Like the commenter above I fail to see how General Motors is at fault. However I will give you some advice: If your getting poor mpg try taking it in for a tune up. Odds are you need your O2 sensor replaced and perhaps it's time for plugs as well. AS for your electrical issues, you may have a bad ground. Again when you take it into the mechanic he'll be able to diagnose it for you. This car needs maintenance. All cars do over their life. It's your job as the vehicle owner to keep it running properly, not GM's.
