According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), numerous safety recalls were reported for Pontiac Grand Prix GTP models made between 1996 and 2010.
The most recent recalls were issued in 2015 for the following concerns:
- Engine Oil Leaks. Pontiac Grand Prix models manufactured between 1997 and 2004 are at risk engine oil leaks onto the car’s exhaust manifold, which can increase the chances of an engine fire.
- Headlight Failure. Some 2007 models have been recalled for a faulty headlamp driver module (HDM) that may overheat—failing of the headlights and daytime running lamps to illuminate.
Since 2015, no new recalls have been issued on any Pontiac Grand Prix GTPs—so if that’s what you drive, you’re in the clear! Likely that recall concerns have already been addressed in most models—but if you’re on the hunt for a used Grand Prix GTP, it’s worthwhile to look into the vehicle’s maintenance history to find out if any recall repairs were ever performed.
