Same here. I can barely find a GP with a 3800 series for that little. Most that are that cheap have the rental car 3100 series.

For a 97 with that many miles 5000 bucks is in the right range.. maybe a tad low, but I saw a 99 with 78k miles fully loaded every option GTP for only 9995 $.... the grand prix is a very common car, and dosent really hold its value that well from what I have seen. (Waiting till the summer then I'll probably be getting my a GTP or Regal GS... The LeSabres been good to me but I dont need a huge car... I'm a single male, 20 years old... a maroon lesabre dose not impress chicks.....

Ive seen prices for GTP'* range from 5,000 to 10,000+. Sounds like a good deal, the tranny in that is the 4t65-HD, right? If it is, there are some design defects you might want to check out. 100k miles isnt too high, its only about 15k miles a year. If I were you I would definitly sell the car privatly, the only reason I would ever trade a car in is if the milage too high or if there are some mechanical defects.

That is not true at all the Grand prix "GTP is nothing more than an add on when it comes to pricing it. I have access to auctions, and the Buyers guides, and sadly the GTP'* lose just as much value, and are harder to sell because people are worried about a premium fuel bill and the added insurance costs that can sometimes come with a supercharged car. SE"* and GT'* out sell GTP'* many times over.

my Girlfriend just bought a supercharged 98 GTP Pace Car #1398 0f 1500 (0ne of 200 with a sunroof) with 70k for $8500 RETAIL, the guy who traded it in got $5800 for it, The 04 has made the valus of the 97-03'* drop big time. just like any other time a new model is out on any car.

I decided not to get it. I just moved out of my parents house, and the car would put me on too tight of a budget. Oh well, hopefully its for the better, it seemed like a "too good to be true" kind of deal.
