A sporty alternative to my two door 99 Grand Prix!
Line pressure solenoid in the transmission (not a big problem, 60 bucks).
O2 Sensor went out, blower resistor in heater, kind of a pain because I froze my ass off on the way to work.
None of this came out of my pocket thanks to my limited warranty.
I bought the car from the dealership I work at, so it was well taken care of. I originally wasn't in the market for a vehicle, but our immaculate Arizona rust free 99 Durango was totaled, so now, my first car loan. I previously had owned a Silver 99 2 door Grand Prix GT, and swore I would own another one.
Then one day window shopping on my work lot, spotted a 2000 4 door Redfire Metallic GT, that hadn't been PDI'd yet. We got the insurance check and now are driving this beauty. Like the Durango it has no rust and no metal deep scratches, and the mileage is considerably low. It has the same award-winning 3800 V6, but when compared with my coupe, which only had a cassette player, this has a single CD player with 7 band equalizer, which is a thoughtful touch.
One Pontiac trademark I've always loved, is the warm red back-lit gauges, which sets off the red paint a little nicer than my Silver one.
Power is plentiful at any speed, and magnasteer and widetrack handling make the car a joy around hairpin corners.
The only downfall of this car, is the taupe beige interior shows stains easy, so extra care is needed. But even as a Dodge truck lover, it's no wonder why I keep coming back to the Grand Prix.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
