Pros

It's very powerful and very fun to drive, despite being a FWD. Super reliable, and can run for over 300,000 miles. (mine is currently at 80,000 only). Lots and lots of cargo space, probably nearly 20 cubic feet in the trunk.

Cons

The car length is too long; 196.5 inches. Long and big but not totally a muscle car.

25

Fun To Drive And Reliable — The car is too long and so it is hard to maneuver through tight turns and in small parking lots. Very nice sounding V6 and pulls hard when you step on the gas. Leather seats and interior, high quality features for its time.

Pros

Dependable, Spacious,Great Family car!

Cons

Very sensitive..one little mistake and it could break down! got to treat it like a baby. Also the heater and air conditioning only go up to level 4/5 levels. after 4 it turns off. And if I leave the car charger in it the battery dies. very sensitive.

Reliable. — overall,reliable. great little work car. Very sensitive I would give it about 3.5 stars. it is a very sturdy car and I haven't worried to much with it just about the possible coolant leak and that it overheated once but overall it has treated me good...I just hope it will last a couple more years it only has 120k miles on it,.

Pros

Safe, Great MPG, Fun in-town car.

Cons

Acceleration(3.1L), some models have been known to catch fire, Rare!

95

Great Car, But A Little To, "family Friendly" For Me. — Acceleration- 3.1L in town its a fun car, out on the open road its a wimp. the 3.8L however is fun and gives you some rush when you put the "pedal to the metal" Handling- low center of gravity gives it greater cornering, but raises concerns about bottoming out. Breaking- Is excelent if you looking for a safe quick response car, then you've found it.

Sweet Car — This is an excellent car. the shift option gives you the choice of go like stink or coast and get good gas mileage. the wide wheel base makes the car hug the road even at high speeds. so far no repairs and runs sweet for 180 km. the style of the car looks sweet all aroun. the interior is comfortable as hell, plenty of room front and back and a huge trunk that can fit 4 dead bodies. on a scale of 1 to 10..... get one. NOW!

Pontiac's Best Sports Coupe Is A Cra For All Seasons — This is a sweet car. It has a full load and the 3.8 L motor delivers great performance with good fuel economy. The only thing that would make this car better is the availabilty of a manual transmission. The car has a good ride and decent handling and a cavernous rear seat is it has a wheel base that is common with the four door. We like the styling. We bought the car used in the spring of 2010 with 80,000 miles on the odometer. We had to do some work to the car (typical maintenance) shocks - front end parts, brakes tune up etc. and now it runs great. We did have some hot start issues which were cured with three things. New ignition coils, new crank and cam shaft sensor and a new fuel pump. Lets face it the car is 10 years old and lightly used when we bought it so we are not upset about that. 2010 has been a scorcher heat wave here in New England and since we had the repairs completed, the hot start issues have vanished. The shade tree mechanic may find the rear spark plugs along the fire wall tough to change. We accessed ours from the bottom of the car while it was on jack stands. We installed iridum plugs so that will not be a problem for 75,000 miles or so. Even replacing a serpentine belt replacement is a major event as we had to remove the coolant over flow tank to get the required clearance. This car is a hoot to drive and the factory installed bose sound is decent with the heads up speedomoter being positively space age. The rear control arms on the suspension were also replaced. We dumped the lousy u shaped GM arm for a box section arm from rock auto. The design detail on this car is impressive. (Makes me wonder why they killed Pontiac)I like the top engine braces and the cross members in the engine bay. GM obviously made this car to perform and it does not disappoint. The exhaust note is symphoney like and the power steering gives enough boost but not too much as you see in some cars. (nice to feel connected to the road). The rear end stying with the spoiler is tasteful and there is minimal torque steer. I am hopeful that the traction control combined with dedicated snow tires will make this a gem in winter as well. I will post another review once the snow flies. Trunk space is decent and the rear center arm rest allows access to the truck. My sons friend summed up the back seat accomodation this way "I love sitting in the back seat as it has bucket seats". Not exactly how I might describe them but they look comfortable.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

All the custom work i did to make it my own, that beautiful 3800 engine, and the bose sound system

Cons

If gm made a product that sucked i wouldnt have owned 4 of em, that being said this along with basically every 3800's downfall is the transmission, the overdrive gear likes to fail, luckily I already had that fixed when i bought it

235

The Specter Gt — Performance, its pretty quick, 210 horse power at the crank shaft Build Quality, its a GM, great product what more can i say Appearance, Arctic white paint with red accents in as many places as i was able to paint em on, and i love my polished aluminum wheels, shiny arent they? Cost of Ownership, i think ive got about 3500 in it, and it gets around 19 to 20 in town and 28 highway mpgs, hopefully with some E3 spark plugs and a Cold air intake that will go up to 30-32 highway and maby 22-24 in town Fun Factor, yea its fun to drive, with the windows and sunroof open and the stereo playing it doesnt get much better, though it will once i finish my 5k audio build

2000 Grand Prix Gt Coupe — -Handled and performed much better when it was new -I still love the exterior appearance; still love it compared with the new body Grand Prix -Used to be fun to drive, now its so so hum hum -There's way to much cheap feeling plastic used in the cabin -A few things do not work anymore, like the power seat and a window...which is to be expected in a 140k mile car

Unique Muscle — High in performance, and value. Strong powertrains, sporty styling, loads of features, fun to drive One of 2000 made originality guaranteed with this daytone 500 edition. Not exactly a family car although the back seat is surprisingly roomy and seats 3 comfortabley

Pros

Had a lot of power and was just fun to drive.

Cons

Trim on the door started falling off. Headlights were extremely foggy. Overdrive had some problems. Brakes were barely there.

A Decent And Powerful Car — The brakes and headlights kind of sucked, but this was a fast car. Had a lot of power and sounded nice when you stepped on it. It was a lot of fun to drive even though it did have some mechanical issues.
