so im thinking about getting a grand prix some tiem in the future. im thinking a gtp but i dunno what the best model and year to get is. im thiking $15,000 or less. i want one with the best after market and easy to mod and upgrade to be pretty fast. waht do you guys think? im sure somepeople here have GPs like Sol.
The 97 is the first year for this body style, and the cheapest. There is no traction control in the 97 GTP too. All the years are pretty close to being the same. There are minor changes with each year.
If you get a 2 door, your insurance will be higher.
Overall, they are very reliable cars. If you are planning on spending over 10,000, you can find one with pretty low miles. The aftermarket is great for these cars, and they are very quick.
You sure you wanna spend upwards of 15,000? Go cheaper...say 10k for starters. High miles isn't all that bad if the previous owner(*) were good to the car. As for what GP you should get: 98-2003
97'* were a little quirkly and the new gen'* are too expensive for what you can afford. Also shoot for a 4 door. As strange as that sounds its only about 50lbs heavier than a 2 door and insurance will be less. Good luck and take your time!
