2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT2 3.8 series III V6 from North America
Styled like no other car on the road
The only thing that has been wrong with the car is the rotors. I had to have the rotors on the front brakes polished. Grooves formed in them around 6,000 miles causing the car to vibrate while braking. This I think was my fault more than cars, because of my over use of the brake pedal.
I really love this car. I bought a fusion orange GT2 for 19,000 on the road. It is completely loaded with Xm radio, Heads Up Display, and a 6 disc cd changer.
The Grand Prix's performance is really good for the price I payed for it. From my shopping around they're only a couple of non GM cars that are the same performance for the same price.
The styling is really what sold me on this car. Toyota Camrys, Nissan Altimas, and Ford Taurases are all good cars for the price, but all these cars in my opinion are bland and just fade into the background in interstate traffic. However, when you meet a 2004 Grand Prix on the road you know it. With its flaring orange running lamps and it's reptilian looks there is not another car on the road that looks like it.
However, if you are looking for a family hauler this probably won't be your car. The backseat is cramped even for small adults. The only people to ever fit comfortably in the backseat are my small young cousins who are 8 years old and even then they can't see out the back windows. But, the front seats are very comfortable even for me and I am 6'5" and weigh 360 lbs. But if you are looking for comfortable, stylish, and zippy sedan to carry yourself and another then this car might be for you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
