Nose-heavy and tail-light, it was straight-line fast — once you got traction — but a lumber wagon in the corners. This robs me of power and mpg's not to mention it's hard on the engine itself. And, too, because suspension engineers are finding ways to allow for some softness on the straights and yet snug down to business when it comes to serious cornering. The car is wider than most cars in its class which gives it great turn hugging ability. All are five-passenger, four-door, front-wheel-drive sedans with 3. Perhaps a little bit of diagnosis before you spend money on parts could help alleviate some of your frustration. NewUsedFilter selectedNewUsedList, null ; newUsedFilter.
It was fairly inexpensive to repair and throughout the process, I was told that this happening was extremely rare. And these are standard sized mattresses too, not those crummy narrow hospital sized mattresses. Everything i need to know about the cars performance is right in front of me at the drivers information center panel which is generously faced towards the driver to deter others from touching your radio, giving you more control of the cockpit-like driver area. The current car brings improvements in all those categories, and a real revolution in interior design, not only in eye-appeal and ergonomics but in versatility, flexibility and utility. The , for example, gets the 5. The outside mirrors are remarkably large for a sedan. I had to do some engine modifications myself to get rid of some of this kr.
I drove this car nearly 20,000 miles in the 8-9 months that I had it, taking plenty of trips from Missouri to California for example. That lowers gas mileage slightly, but accounts for the addition of 60 horsepower to 260 and the reduction by some two seconds in the time it takes to reach 60 mph from zero. My struts are very wore out and need to be replaced. I would give nearly anything to have it back. You can close the trunk door on anything up to nine feet long, like a rigged fly rod, for example. With the rear seat up and five people on board, the trunk still holds 16 cubic feet of whatever those folks need to carry.
The Driver Information Center with its four-line read-out is just to the right and above your fist in a console canted slightly toward you. The dash and shifter are coordinated well, surrounding the driver in comfort. One tap on the gas and I was hooked. One reason is front tires that are larger than the rears. Anyone test-driving such a car has to consciously force attention through to the vehicle instead of simply enjoying the ease of motion, the willingness of the engine, the responsiveness of the brakes.
Yes Review Date: 24th September, 2009 Faults: Well. My car is now 5-years-old and has 80,000 miles on it about 50,000 on its new-used engine. The resulting grille with its trademark Pontiac division is straight across on top with bowl-shaped curving sides. And braking performance--174 feet from 70 mph, and zero fade--is on par for this class. All is controlled so you can't over-rev.
Prices do not include manufacturer's destination and delivery charges. The leather-wrapped steering wheel fills the hand just right. Its large exterior dimensions mask a cramped interior. Coupe-like styling limits visibility and access, particularly to the rear. All this flat and nearly flat space can be accessed through the trunk with a particularly low lift-over height. Happily, there's little to no torque steer in the Grand Prix.
The rear end is as muscular as a speed skater's. A coupe-like tautness characterizes the exterior design of this four-door sedan, thanks to a more extreme wedge shape and a roofline five inches longer than that of the previous-generation model. When Thomas was visiting Australia a few years ago, he was bowled over by the multitude of fun-handling rear-drive cars still available in that lost world of drivetrains. Cross a border, make your selection and read Ks; punch again and it's miles. If you wear your baseball cap backward, this Bud's for you. The headlights are even more slanted and attenuated than on the previous Grand Prix.
The key fob if applicable , should also be removed from the key ring. The black Grand Prix at the press introduction also had a solution for some of my objections to the new grille: a heavier, more important optional chrome surround. Walkaround A commitment to style separates the Grand Prix from other mid-size transportation pods. My only serious gripe is a mechanical omission by Pontiac, which to me is a slap in the face. The office and cars there won't be anything fancy, hence the name cheap cars, however, the people there are the easiest to work with and were really were upfront and honest with the quirks of the car and pricing.
