Best Car Ever

I have had this car for a few years now and have never regreted it. I have 227,000 on it and is still going strong. the only problem i had was the cam shaft sensor go out and the driver side window motor...but got those fixed and has never been an issue again. I would recommend this car for a college student, or for a first car.


Awesome Ride

I have owned my 2002 Grand Prix GTP for going on 4 years. I love it. I have had to fix small things like converter, replace headlights but they are cheap, my mechanic suggested drilling a tiny hole in the cover to let condensation out, have to do this. Great mileage, performs well. I enjoy driving this car every single day to work and travelling.


reliable used car

i perchased this vehicle in may 2010 with 158,000 miles on it. I immediately took it to my mechanic and he stated this is a good used car. he stated i really lucked out. The only thing he recommended was to change the front passanger tire. which we didi immediately that day. Gas mileage is fantastic. Im averaging about 345 miles on a full tank IN THE CITY. so far I have nocomplaints....lets keep our fingers crossed.


2002 GTP 2 Door

I bought this car new and it's still my daily driver. I lightly modified the car the 1st year I owned it, 2.4 pulley, CAI, Plugs, Shift kit, exhaust, HPTuner custom tune. The car runs very strong and is a blast to drive for a big car. I average 17 city and high 20's highway still with mods and moderately aggressive tune and driving habits. However it has it's problems & issues. The problematic plastic upper and lower intake manifold gaskets went bad at 55k which I replaced for 200 bucks saving close to $1000 the dealer would have charged. I had the trans replaced but that was from me beating on it but its the weak link in the drive train. Last year my keys got stuck in the ignition and wouldn't rotate. Fixed that too but it took some research on the net to do so. At the end of the day I still love this big fast American made car and it still make people smile when the supercharger starts whining and the car starts flying.


lots of problems

many things have gone wrong with this car, at 77000 mi the auto trans went, aT 80000 MI THE FLAP FOR A/C DOOR BROKE, $600.00 to fix, at 82000 mi the heater/a/c control switch went,$165.00 to fix, at 90,000 mi the right front & left rear anti lock brake & traction control modules went, $500.00 to fix also windshield washer motor went,$ 20.00 for new one.. not a good car at all



I have had 1 for over a year and have got to take it in 4 time to get it fixed. The lights and 1 part that have learn needs to be fixed on all of this model costs $1000 just for the part.


Simply Reliable

I've had a 1994 Pontiac Grand prix but I sold it because I wanted a 4-door vehicle. Well I bought a 1998 Jeep Wrangler and was not satisfied with it so I sold that and bought myself a 2002 white Pontiac Grand prix sedan and I love every inch of it. i've owned this car for about 4 months now and my only problem is that the 'low oil light' goes on when im on a hill but I checked the oil and it's fine so I think the light has a problem. other than that i recommend this vehicle to anybody!


nothing but trouble

everything from intake gaskets, mass air flow sinsers, fuel pressure regulator. If you want problems buy one.


must reliable car i've owned

After driving it for 3 1/2 years it is one of the best pontiacs i have ever driven (2002 grand prix) and i have owned a 1978,1979 boneville a 1981 grand prix,a 1993 grand prix and grand am,a 1984 fiero,a 1998 boneville , 2 diferent 1985 trans am one with a dual carburator and one with twin port injection.


The Best Car I Ever Owned.. Almost

I have an 02 Grand Prix SE, its looks good, handles well even though the tires do shriek a little in hard corners & u turns, its really dependable (started perfectly in harsh nyc winter), the fuel economy is not good even with me cutting out my heavy foot & stoplight racing, the engine is good, has that V8 feel & exhaust note but I am used to more power (owned a 98 Regal LS 25th 3.8 V6 previously but it was totaled) probably will get another car though for the city driving, the city gas mileage is not good at all for an average size V6 (3.1 Liter)
