These cars are great for anyone who appreciates a decidedly sporty vehicle that is also quite comfortable and practical. Four people can travel in exceptionally roomy comfort and the trunk is surprisingly large for those road trips you will want to take! For the price, I cannot imagine a car that s more fun to drive and has amenities like a good stereo, heads up display (available). It handles well and has very respectable acceleration. For those like me who want "more, the supercharger pulley can be swapped out fairly easily for a substantial power increase. All-in-all, a very fun car to own and drive!

2000GT What a Great Car

by from Cleveland, OH on August 17, 2011

My wife originally bought our 2000 Grand Prix GT in 2002 with 28k on it. She wanted an SUV so I happily inherited it (We traded in my 2004 GTP for that SUV!!) I've been driving the 2000 GT for 4 years...
My wife originally bought our 2000 Grand Prix GT in 2002 with 28k on it. She wanted an SUV so I happily inherited it (We traded in my 2004 GTP for that SUV!!) I've been driving the 2000 GT for 4 years now and it has 176,000 miles and counting. We have religiously maintained this car and it has more than returned the favor. Although we've replaced wheel bearings, a couple power window motors, and a few other non-routine repairs, this car STILL runs great. GM did a great job with this 3.8 V6. It's a really comfortable car-my commute is 82 miles a day. I've owned a couple Nissans (240SX and Maxima) and a Chevy Lumina LTZ besides the 2004 GTP. From a maintenance cost perspective, my 2000 GT blew the others away. Repairs were needed less, and they were less expensive. Overall this may rival the Maxima for the best car I've owned. I'll probably trade it in soon for a newer upgrade, but someone is going to get a great old car that still looks pretty good. Believe me, if you're thinking about buying a new Cobalt or other small 4-door, do yourself a favor and check out a slightly used Grand Prix. You'll thank yourself later. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

Bought used in an auction, I've put 128,00 mile on in the last 5 years. Love the interior space and except for replacing the brake lines, it's been just tires and oil changes. Stick to the road in corners, Heater/Air conditioner is marginal and the engine is lacking in spunk even though it's a 3.8l. However gas mileage is pretty good (consistently 23-24 town and 27 highway). Just put on new tires so I'm looking forward to at least a couple of more years.

Best Car I've Ever Owned!

by from Oswego, NY on May 4, 2011

Had it till almost 200000 miles. The body was rotting away and it wasn't drivable anymore but other than that the engine and transmission could have gone on until the end of time. Great car!

I have personally gone through 5 vechicles within a 4 year span, and this one was the hardest for me to give up. I never had a problem with it at all it was driving great even after 200k miles on it. One of the few vechicles i would let one of my own kids drive its that reliable in my mind and it doesn't look too bad either.

This car is a cool car. I am 16 years old and I think the car is great. Mine is supercharged and goes really fast. The only problems I have had is the wheel bearings were worn and it leak some oil. It did cost $4,000 in repairs. Another big downfall is the gas. You have to buy premium so thats no fun but you still have alot of power under the hood. Its really fun to get on the highway and floor it.

Being the 10th car I've owned, I have to say I wish it could last forever. The Pontiac Gran Prix has been a pleasure to own and drive. I always felt safe that it would make it on a long haul trip with no worries. After 7 years of ownership, I never had any mechanical problems at all. Pontiac did an extremely good job building this car. The comfort and responsivenees rate high.

This car rocks! This is a great peformance car. The GTP can destroy 6 cylinder camaros and mustangs. Another plus is the insurance. When you buy a camaro or mustang you have to pay high insurance just because of the name; with a grand prix the insurance is reasonable. There are plenty of performance parts for those who are interested. The speedometer goes up to 110 mph but ive gotten mine up to 130mph; so that proves that they can fly. Only downsides are: no manual transmission option, and you will have to buy premium gas but its worth it. It has large interior space and trunk space. My friend who is 6-5 can drive it comfortably. Lots of trunk space, can fit a lot of luggage. The grand prix's are front wheel drive so it does well in the snow and on ice. I have a fairly steep hill and it takes a couple of minutes but my car always makes it up there. This is a great car and if you are looking for affordable performnace this is definately the best choice.
