Start Making These Again! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/26/2014. Trim: 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT2, Owned 10 years.
Pros: I like how it looks, drives and has held up for the past 10 years. Very little maintenance and still has a sporty look for a bigger car. Several people have commented on how good this car drives and handles, even for its size. It get compared on many websites with Toyota Camry's, due to size, occupancy, engine output power and price. Well the Camry is an appliance type car, these Pontiacs still have a soul.
Cons: That it is no longer made. That the non supercharged models have less options. Some of the cheap plastics and odd round buttons on the factory stereo. Rubber suspension components on non GTP models.
Overall review: I would buy two more of these for personal use if they were still made. I own a GT2 but would get the GTP or GPX versions is they had not shut down Pontiac.

A Good Car With a Few Minor Exceptions by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/09/2012. Trim: 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT1, Owned 6 years.
Pros: I like the handling and acceleration of the 3.8 L engine. It looks very appealing and there were many of these cars made, so parts are easy to come by. It gets pretty good gas mileage, such as hwy at 70 mph it gets about 28mpg and at 55mph it gets anywhere from 30 to 34mpg. I like how the gauges go up and back down when started. Like the textured plastic on the front and rear bottom of the car, because this prevents scratching the paint.
Cons: The oil pan gasket starts to go around 100k miles which will cost about 350 dollars, but if you do it yourself 20 dollars and 3 hours of your time. There are two poly elbows for the cooling system that are attached to the engine. Because of the heat they only last about 100k miles. There are grounds for the electrical system behind both headlight housings that easily corrode because water will sit there, but that is an easy fix. Sits very low to the ground. If you are going to let the car sit outside year round then use DI-electric grease to prevent corrosion and this will prevent almost all electrical problems. Also have your computer updated at the dealer.
Overall review: Great family car, but needs a little more maintenance than most.
