2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Supercharged 3.8 ltr V6 from North America


A good car


The only thing that has gone wrong with the car since I purchased it was the inside rear view mirror fell off.

General Comments:

From the first time I sat in the car, I liked it. I am kind of tall (6'5") and I was looking for a coupe that had enough leg room, and power for me. It's exterior styling had to also be appealing.

This car really surprised me with it's spacious interior. When I sat in it, I actually felt that I would be able to take it on a road trip and not feel crammed in it. The HUD is convenient when driving at night, but not too visible during the day. The radio controls on the steering wheel are a plus.

The only negative thing I can say about the interior is that I don't like the trunk release in the glove compartment, but that is how it is with most Pontiac's so I just use the one on the remote.

I really like how the car handles. With the wide track design, it lets me corner at much faster speeds then I did with previous cars.

The engine is powerful, the 240 horses and 280 foot lbs of torque come in handy when I want to pass someone or when I'm in a hurry and need to get somewhere fast.

I do think that the car could come with bigger breaks to accommodate for quicker stopping, and a stiffer suspension to take the road bumps with out bouncing as much.

When I stand outside of the car, I like how it looks, from the dual exhaust pipes, to the fog lights, I like how the car looks. The only things I would change are I would put some tint on the windows, and get some bigger wheels, but those are minor.

I agree, the stock wheels are "OK"...but that's about it. They're fine for the every day type driver, but I like to have something that sets my cars off from the rest. My problem has been trying to find a set of wheels that look appropriate on the car; most of the ones I've seen are marketed toward the rice racer crowd, and just don't look right on a GTP. Any ideas on where to find some decent, muscular looking rims that will fit properly?

Totally. I'm thinking of buying a 2001 GTP from a friend of mine. It has 20" chrome rims and lo-profile tires. It looks awesome with the silver body and the dark tinted windows. Although, I'm worried about the SuperCharger going out. His car has like 85-90k miles on it. = (What do you people think?

The 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT affords reliability and performance for a decent price


A Factory Re-call on the coolant seal was completed.

The blower motor caused my heat to remain on overnight until the battery died, wherein the blower switch needed to be replaced.

The driver door refused to latch and latch was replaced.

The car seems to love to eat brake pads and rotors more often than the average vehicle.

There is condensation in the driver headlamp.

There is condensation in the rear driver side tail lights.

There is a leak which causes water to run into the trunk, causing a damp musty mildew smell and wetness.

General Comments:

Overall I am pleased with this vehicle.

The repairs have been minor thus far and it has been very reliable. In fact, the most reliable vehicle I have owned.

I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for performance and reliability. I would buy another Pontiac product in the future.
