Won't buy a Pontiac again
LINCOLN, CALIFORNIA -- Bought a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix Coupe used in 2003. Had only 45K miles, ran good (then) and was generally happy with the overall performance of the vehicle. Then all kinds of things started to go wrong with the car. First electrical problems blowing fuses and now when I start it up, it runs OK till the engine warms up then it loses all power. Thought it was the tranny but a diagnostic found nothing. Then to the dealership where purchased who promptly sent me to the Pontiac dealership itself and they wanted $300 just to check into it. So I took it to the nearest auto repair facility and they charged me $80 to tell me what I already knew about the car,... loss of power. Too bad I can't suspend the payments while I try to find the money/time to get this lemon fixed. Second GM product and will be my last. Going back to Japanese. Oh, in case you're wondering, GM is a big company and I don't have all day to sit on the phone and jump through hoops just to talk to a rep who will eventually tell me it isn't their problem. And we all know that's exactly what will happen.
