2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #1

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • 77,000 miles


I have found both sides of the front suspension anti roll bar on my 2002 Grand Prix gtp to have cracks at the pinch weld, where the links attach. On the lhs is it pretty well cracked all the way through, the rhs is cracked approx 50% of the way through. It appears the road salt and corrosion is getting in between the pinch weld and splitting the bar in two. This would not be a catastrophic loss of control but would go from firm cornering to wishy washy. I am a professional technician by trade and do my own work on my pov's. I can supply pictures if needed. The car has about 77000 miles on it at the time. I think the manufacturer also needs to address the oil pan leaks as well. They can leak and drain right on to the exhaust. Again this was found by a routine inspection and verified by buffing it off with a buffing wheel.
