"I bought this car in 2009 with 130000 miles on it. It now has 182000, and still runs like brand new. The 3800 Series II is bulletproof, and runs forever. I've taken it to Florida and back twice, and wouldn't hesitate to do it again, even with the mileage. The performance shift option is appealing, and I love the feeling of the supercharger kicking in. This car is faster than most new cars being manufactured today. 240 horsepower and 280 torque? That's amazing for such an affordable vehicle. Also, the heads up display which shows all your gauge info on the windshield, is a great idea that was way ahead of its time. I work for Audi, and they are just beginning to bring that idea back. This thing is dependable too. I definitely recommend."

"I bought 2 Grand Prixs for my sons. One was a 2003 Grand Prix with the 3.1 litre motor, and I was blown away by how well it drove with 300,000+ miles on it with orignal motor and Trans. My other son wanted a Honda because of their reputation of being long lasting vehicles. I ended up buying him a 1999 Grand Prix GXP that had 220,000 miles on it. 3 years later and 65,000 added, it still runs flawless. After seeing the cars I bought them perform above and beyond expectation. I decided to buy a 2000 Grand Prix SE with the 3800 series 2 motor in it. I can't believe how much performance that little motor produces. It spins the tires when it switches to second gear under wide open throttle. Bottom line, I would not hesitate to buy another grand prix in the future. I have been told the 3.1 and 3.4 sometimes have head gasket problems. If you decide to buy a Grand Prix I highly recommend the 3800 series 2 motor."

"I have owned a number of Pontiacs and have loved every one of them. The sporty look of my last Grand Prix made me a proud owner and loved every minute behind the wheel. Was extremely sad to see the Pontiac brand go the way of the Oldsmobile. When I was in the market for a new vehicle (Equinox LTZ), I bequeathed my Grand Prix to my grandson. It's still going strong to this day."

"My family bought me a 1998 Grand Prix GTP 2 door coupe my first year in college. WOW what a good looking car! Gold with a Black stripe my Frat. colors. This car was a head turner. I would get many complements on car. I kept the car super clean and when the sun would hit that gold color it looked unreal. The GTP package was mind blowing and very fun to drive. This car had great pick up and zip. The inside was very nice with many buttons to play with, I loved showing the car off. The 2 door coupe had plenty of space although the back seat was kind of tight but I never really got any complaints about it. The gas was not good at all but with that big engine we know the car would be bad on gas. I had the car for 12 years the only reason I got rid of the car is that we had a baby and needed a 4 door car. Sold that car to a family member and he kept the car another 4 years. The car lasted 16 years total you can't get much better then that. The car would have lasted longer if it wouldn't have been totaled out. I really loved the car when I had it. Very dependable never left me stranded any where. Sorry that Pontiac stop making cars because this on was a beast!"

"My mother was the original owner and gave it to me at about 20,000 miles a few years ago. Despite regular maintenance it somehow ran out of transmission fluid and the transmission had to be replaced. The brake pads, rotors, wheel hubs, tie rods, thermostat and intake manifold gasket have also been replaced.At 58,000 miles the car now drives like it just rolled off the showroom floor and will do 140 mph. In my opinion it still looks better than most cars on the road. I am thrilled to own it. I just don't understand why my friend's 2005 Honda Odyssey minivan,at 200.000 miles, is worth $4,000 more."
