2000 Pontiac Grand Prix review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Pontiac gives the base Grand Prix engine more horsepower and adds a racy pace-car replica as a special-edition model for 2000.

The Grand Prix coupe is the foundation for Pontiac’s entry in NASCAR stock-car competition, and a modified production Grand Prix paced the Daytona 500 last February. To mark the occasion, Pontiac is offering 2,000 replicas of the pace car with silver paint, checkered flag and Daytona 500 graphics on the rear flanks, a rear spoiler and hood air intakes. Under the hood will be a 240-horsepower supercharged V-6 engine.

Though usually considered a midsize car, cars.com includes the Grand Prix with full-size models because its 110.5-inch wheelbase (distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels) exceeds 110, the magic number for full-size status. The Grand Prix’s overall length of 196.5 inches is in the same ballpark as the BMW 740I and Lexus LS400, full size luxury sedans.

Grand Prix is unique in this class for being available as both a two-door coupe and foor-door sedan. The curvaceous styling is the same on both except for the rear doors and rear side panels.

The Grand Prix is shorter than the Bonneville in both wheelbase and length, yet still plenty roomy. Headroom is plentiful for all seats, and there is adequate leg space in back even when the front seats are as far back as they go. The deep trunk holds 16 cubic feet of cargo. A pass-through section in the rear seatback allows storage of long items.

Under the Hood
The front-drive Grand Prix comes in three flavors: mild, spicy and hot. The mild SE sedan uses a base 3.1-liter V-6 with 175 horsepower, 15 more than last year from a variety of changes.

The spicy variety is a 200-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 that is optional on the SE and standard on GT models. The hottest is a supercharged version of the 3.8-liter with 240 horsepower that is part of the GTP Package available on GT models. All come with a four-speed automatic transmission and standard traction control.

Supercharged -super happy

I have a 2000 GTP supercharged 184k normal things like alternator , battery etc went wrong with it but the core of the car is solid Fast, good handling, solid If you can find a clean GTP for under 3k buy it


Very great running car

I bought this 3 years ago my truck engine blew. Pd $1200.00 rust, air didn't cool but happy. Would like another after virus is cured, no loan for me right now. 1 bad thing the car rides too low to ground I hit bottom hard on muffler. Living in Michigan I get stuck pretty easy in snow. This summer I got a short somewhere, car runs great but nothing electric works, seats windows,heater fan works great. Back left tail light, thus left blinker wont work tried few bulbs, fuses waiting to get pulled over about that. Needs new brakes, whole muffler system from hitting ground. If I get a 10 ticket to fix tail light I'm gonna have to junk it. It's old have no idea what up keep it had before me. I really like the ride, size and looks of car. It's not worth fixing all this now, body is pretty rusted. If I can fix this short myself I'll drive it till it dies. Very reliable start.


I wish Pontiac was still around

I bought a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP in 2008. It had 110,000 miles on it. Ten years and 338,000 miles latter I finally had to let it go. This car was one of the best and most fun to drive cars I ever had. It was very reliable and very comfortable to drive. It was a great car and I often had complete strangers walk up to me and ask to buy it. If I could do it all over again I would buy another one.
