2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 3.8L V6 from North America
This car is a very good value for a sporty mid-sized sedan
The only major problem I have had with this car was an exhaust gas recirculation valve that went bad around 50,000 miles. It cost around $400.00 for repairs.
The upholstery right in front of the brackets for the driver's seat started to wear after less than two years, but the floor mat covers it.
The 200-hp 3.8 liter V-6 has plenty of power for quick acceleration and passing on the freeway.
The car handles better than any other vehicle I have ever owned, and the ride is pretty smooth considering the tight suspension.
The brakes work very well -- I've hardly ever had to use the anti-lock brakes, and the anti-locks work like a charm.
One downside is an annoying buzz produced by the exhaust that is very noticeable on acceleration.
I spent the extra $500.00 for the Bose premium sound system and it was worth it!
The leather seats are very comfortable, even on hot days.
The trunk leaves something to be desired. It has a very small capacity and most large boxes/suitcases/crates, etc., don't fit.
Surprisingly, this car is very good on gas. I average around 25 miles to the gallon overall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
