2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP w/Comp Group 3.8 Supercharged from North America


Wonderful performance sedan that did not forget the family


Something in the front suspension (some bolt) came loose 2 times. Last time the dealer fixed it right.

General Comments:

Wonderful performance sedan that did not forget the family.

If you want any kind of performance out of it, must use super unleaded gas.

Only thing to make it better is 30+ more horses (see 2006 GTX) and AWD.

Best car I have ever had


Nothing to complain about.

General Comments:

This Grand Prix is one heck of a car for the price. Sporty looking, powerful, comfortable, drives like a dream, sounds good. I could go on and on. Instrument panel is easy to read.

Bad brakes


The only problem we have had is the brake issue. The car has 20K miles on it and we are being told by the dealer that the car needs new pads and rotors. This was something that we were told is not covered under the manufacturer's warranty because this is normal maintenance.

I asked the dealer how this car could need new brakes after only 20K HIGHWAY miles AND they said that they see it all the time. They wanted $180 to repair the brakes. I told them to put the wheels back on and give it back to me.

Later I find out that there is a GM service bulletin out there that says they are not to re-cut the rotors unless they are pitted or warped. I called the dealer back and asked them why they were going to charge me for something they are not to do. Then I asked if they were aware of the bulletin. The response shocked me; "I know there is one out there, but I have not read it.." That's when I lost it and my threats came. I am awaiting a resolution with this now.

General Comments:

I think it is crazy for this car to need new brakes with 20K highway miles on it. This car was driven off the lot less than 7 months ago. Then I see all the complaints on this site relating to the brakes. This is obviously a widespread issue.

I am scared to find out what will fail next after reading this site.

Also as a side note, I had an issue with the dealer in which they tried to pull the old bait and switch thing.. I called for a quote over the phone and they said they had a brand new vehicle in my price range. When I got there, I looked at the car and saw cigarette burns and also that there was 6000 miles on it. I was furious. I threatened and they gave me a few bucks off...

If anyone knows of a recall or interested in taking this off my hands, let me know.

First of all, you docked points for the car when the car had nothing to do with your problem. You said the car had 6000 miles on when you bought it, so you don't know how bad the brakes were worn at the time of purchase.

Second, a lot of places won't turn down rotors anymore. It is very hard to do because if there is any type of flaw in the rotor after turning them, you'll ruin a new set of brake pads very quickly. Over the years, the cost of rotors has come down so much that is usually cheaper and easier just to put new ones on the car.

Plus, if that 180 bucks included labor, then that's not a bad deal for pads and rotors all the way around.

I’ve had my GTP Comp G car for 16 days now…and so far so good. The car is powerful and handling is excellent. Mt friend didn’t like the amber lighting in the interior, but I think it looks pretty cool, also very easy to read and easy on the eyes.

The only problems I’ve had are the headlights. Much like a problem another reviewer had, the headlights tend to ‘bob’ up and down. I plan on taking the car in and getting them adjusted/tightened.

Also, while the 9-speaker Monsoon stereo system sounds good, the bass tends to rumble and become distorted and fuzzy at higher volumes. This was never a problem with the Bose system in my TrailBlazer with the same CD’s and same volume level.

Again, I’ve only had it for a little over 2 weeks, but so far I am very pleased with my purchase.
