1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 3.8 Series 2 from North America
Good looks, performance and comfort
Most recently the drivers side window began malfunctioning. It went down without any trouble, but it didn't want to go up. Before forking out money for a new motor and regulator, I took the switch out and cleaned up the contacts. It now works like new.
The car was also stalling shortly after I got it, but it would always start back up immediately. Bought an OBD2 code reader, got the trouble code for the Crank sensor and replaced it. Trouble free since.
Operating temperature was a little low, replaced the thermostat.
One rear speaker is on its last leg. That can be expected when installing an aftermarket deck and cranking the volume too high. :)
I love this car, I've been quite happy with it. It was frustrating when it was in its stalling phase, but it was a fairly easy fix.
The 3800 is a real solid engine, it has plenty of power and it has a nice torque curve. The interior is actually of better quality than what I'm used to in a GM. The looks of the car are great in my opinion.
It handles well for a larger car, and rides quite nice too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
