2004/2005 Pontiac Gran Prix

5 posts in this topic

I am in the market for a new/used car and I was researching(jd power) the reliability of the gran prix. I noticed that 04's were not very reliable and the 05 and newer were very reliable. Any Mechanics have any input on this vehicle??Good or bad?? And if 04 to 05 really makes that much of a difference? Thanks in advance!

Get it with a 3.8 liter and you should be in a lot better shape than some of the other motor options. Of all the full size vehicles that GM offers I would say they are probably the better model.

I would agree with Airjer.

I just bought a 97 Grand Prix (3.8 only way to go) with 114,000 miles on it. The thing has plenty of power and is big enough for my 6'1" body. Lots of after-market parts too. If you buy one from a kid, ask if he/she put on after-market rims (GP's DON'T like 20's) the trans can't handle it and may need a rebuild then, if not already. Dirve it, feel for things that don't seem right. look around their are millions of them...literally (I bought my car from the FBI from the HSOforum listed below, was used to bust drug dealers)

    • I have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
