"Bought this car used from original owner. It had 135,000 miles and was in good condition. I paid $2,300. I love the way it drives, it is comfortable inside with many nice features like the seat warmer, control of the stereo from the steering wheel, and dash board is well lit."

Dependable workhorse

"I bought my 1997 Grand Prix SE in 2005 with 67,476 miles. I have now owned it for 9 years and the car currently has 260,600 miles. Issues: the back two windows have something wrong with the motor so I have to use a small wooden plank to keep them up. The ceiling of the vehicle has become a bit droopy as the cloth has detached from the ceiling in some spots. Other than that, I have only had to do minor maintenance with nothing out of the ordinary for a car this age and with this many miles. The most "major" event was a coolant leak and having to replace the water pump. Once I replaced the water pump the problem ceased immediately. The pros of this car FAR outweigh the cons. It has the 3800 Series II engine which is an absolute workhorse, one of the best ever made. The transmission is showing no signs of slipping and everything under the hood is in great condition. The car has very minor rust on the bottom which isn't unexpected for a car that is un-garaged and has gone through many winters of sand and salt on the roads. Many of the reviews I have read for this car say 17 MPG city & 27 MPG highway. I still consistently get 26-29 MPG and that is a combination of city & highway driving. I have just recently begun a job that requires a lot of traveling and this car has been up to the task;the miles have been really racking up the past few months but the Grand Prix has been smooth sailing. Final comment: With regular oil changes and routine maintenance there is no telling how long the Grand Prix will run. Even today, I would recommend purchasing one of these older used Grand Prixs. A truly dependable workhorse."

Pros: "Fits tall people - especially if no power sunroof"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"First drove one as a rental years ago - knew I wanted to buy one if given the opportunity. Being over 6'5", legroom is vital. The Grand Prix is one of the only cars that has adequate legroom. With the seat back, I can place my feet on the firewall and not bang shins on the dashboard. I don't want to get rid of it since I don't know which other cars fit tall drivers. Mileage is at least as good as posted, it jumps dramatically if driving a bit conservatively."

Cons: "Fit & finish, and electrical"

"I have loved the "Widetrack" since they were released at the end of 1996. I have owned 2 over the years and persuaded a couple of friends to buy them too. I like the way they look, the way they drive, the way the interior is laid out, and they are comfortable to ride in no matter which seat you're in. (4 friends over 6 feet tall went on an 800 mile road trip in a coupe and were comfortable the entire way.) The supercharged GTP package has plenty of power for a daily driver and there are several upgrades that can be installed to make more. With that said, they are still a GM product. Fit and finish is a little rough and I expect maintenance to be higher than a comparable Japanese car. My car has only stranded me once and that was due to the "Pass-Key 3" anti-theft module failing. I don't expect the engine to ever fail, but rather the transmission or electronics will be the most likely culprits."

"Traveling to the state of WA, we got 50 mph~YES 50MPH! We had a tailwind, other wise our actual mph exceeded 32! Even though I never wanted this vehicle, it has been so dependable. Great highway mileage, within the past years, have gotten an average of 30."

Pros: "fun to drive, sporty look, spacious interior"

Cons: "cheap plastic cup holders, slow acceleration"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought a white 2001 Grand Prix SE from my RA in college and have loved it ever since. My 3.1L gets up to 30 mpg and is fun to drive. I have put almost 30,000 miles on it in two years and hope it will last for a long time. The frame is incredibly resilient, since I rear-ended a car at 40 mph and the radiator was just nicked in a few places; moreover, I have not noticed any change in the car's drivability since the accident. My only complaints are: I had to touch up a few large spots of paint (although a previous owner did live by the beach), the cup holder was cheaply made and barely functions, the taillights collect water so my dad and I drilled holes and replaced one, and the engine has slow acceleration. Despite the slow acceleration and chips in the paint, this car can really fly on the road and I am glad that it is my first car."
