2007 Pontiac Grand Prix - 2GWP5525711- Ashtabula, OH: April 12th, 2012
Driving on the highway at 70 mph and all of a sudden the car shuts down, like someone unplugged the engine. This was the most horrific moment in my life, semi trucks zooming past me. Finally made my way to the side of the highway and had to call a tow truck, car was towed home and the tow truck guy put the key in the ignition and it started right up. Drove the car to work and it shut down again this time i was only doing 35 mph. I waited for about 30 min and the car started right back up, on my home from work it did it agin. The following week it did it agian, took the car to a "gm" ceritified mechanic but of course they could not find a problem, picked the car up and drove it for a few days it happened again, took it back to the gm mechanic, still couldn't find anything wrong, picked it up a week later same issue. To sum it up i have had the ignition module and the crank sensor shaft and still can not locate th problem. The car is too dangerous to drive and now it's just sitting in my driveway and won't start at all. Gm really needs to take a look at this situation brfore someone gets really hurt, the car is defective.

2007 Pontiac Grand Prix - 2G2WC58C971- Shorewood, IL: February 20th, 2012
The car has had off and on transmission issues. From a stop, when trying to accelerate. It bogged badly, like it was in 2nd, suddenly it slammed into first and i was on my way. There have been several instances of rough shifts. Also, at times i'll be going very slow 0-10mph and need to accelerate in traffic. The car hesitates for a second before regaining rpm. I have not been stranded yet but wanted to record the incidents. I have been very happy with this car and the 4 gms i drove before ( all 100k+, 2 of them 220k+), but these issues are starting to worry me.

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix - 2G2WC52C251- Middletown, VA: February 20th, 2012
I have a 2005 pontiac grand prix gxp with recurring transmission trouble. The transmission has been replaced by gm at 50% cost and the same symptoms are occurring again. Failure is eminent. I have what most are calling the rev and clunk syndrome in my current transmission. My 50,000 mile warranty on the new transmission has just ran out, but i have records where complaints were filed with the dealer with nothing found. After doing some research i see that i am one of hundreds that have had this same problem. Help!

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix - 2G2WC55C161- Xenia, OH: January 4th, 2012
Auto transmission is shifting hard and slipping. Shifts hard from 3 to 4 and will slip just driving down road at road speed. Getting worse day by day, and much worse when cold. Started as a whinning noise about a month ago. I have been told by gm dealer that transmission will probably need rebuilt. I am original owner, car has never been driven hard.

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix - ZGZWP552X61- Brownsville , TN: October 18th, 2011
When i'm driving the lights will go off sometimes they'll come back on and sometimes they stay off! The automatic lights do not come on sometimes when the ignition is turned on... I changed the dimmer switch twice and the lights still do not work even if i turn them on manually.

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix - 2G2WC52C651- Westland, MI: October 10th, 2011
I have a 2005 grand prix gxp in which the transmission has failed. I took the vehicle in for service last year because it would hesitate from a stop and slam violently into first gear. At the time the dealer could not reproduce the concern and told me to bring it back when it got worse. My extended warranty that i purchased separately from gmpp expired on the 22nd of september. This is a dangerous flaw when you are unable to accelerate when pulling into traffic, especially on the gxp model which has over 300 horsepower and torque steer that is hard to control when it finally shifts into gear. *kb

2008 Pontiac Grand Prix - 2G2WP552381- Magnolia, AR: September 15th, 2011
I bought this car used with low mileage, around 30,000 miles in november 2008. My headlights are not working on dim. They work fine on bright. Seems like this could be an electrical problem or a short, because the dims work at times and then will go off if you hit a bump. This has happened several times since i bought the car. Warranty ran out so i took it to an individual mechanic who replaced the dimmer switch. That didn't fix the problem. I also had to replace the power steering pump within the first year or two of purchasing this car. *kb
