Very Good Overall Car For Both Family And Students — Wish the back seat had a little more room. Good for kids but a bit tight for adults. Also, head room is a bit short if your a 6' plus person. 3.8 motor is one of the best motors on the market for reliability, power and fuel efficiency.

Pros

Great gas mileage, room, sporty looking, trunk space, rides good, runs good.

Cons

Haven't really had any cons with this vehicle. The only thing I can think of is a little bit of road noise which honestly could be from the type of tires that are on it.

Great Vehicle For A Variety Of Different People. — This car has been a great car. It is a 4 door, so has good access for kids in the back seat, it gets good gas mileage for a 4 door vehicle and still has plenty of power if you need it. Even though it is a 4 door car it still is sporty looking.

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

Pros

Great looking car.  Handles well both summer and winter. Lots of room inside.  Reasonably economical for a large car.

Cons

Rides a bit rough.  Front seats are marginal for comfort. Headroom when entering ant exiting front doors is poor for those of us who are taller.

Excellent Family Car With Some Sporty Performance In Gtp Trim. — Great car. Looks good and with the supercharged 3.8 has good performance yet remains reasonably economical for a big car. Overall quality is good and apart from the usual problems with GMs of this era (wheel bearings, axle shafts, fuel pump, intake manifold gaskets and low gloss paint) and has been a great and reliable car.

Pros

Car with staying power. General maintenance done and this car has lasted a very long time with only 1 major repair, that being the transmission.  I did pull a small trailer for a period of time with the car so that may have contributed to the need for transmission repair at 186k.

Cons

Bearings by GM are poor quality

Very Good Value. — Love the power and handling. Have had to replace bearings three times. GM quality in bearings for this and similar models are poor. Heated seat is fantastic. Seating positions to anywhere which makes traveling very comfortable. Large trunk and roomy rear seats add to the overall great family car design.

2003 Pontiac Gp Se — overall i really like this car it handles well and gets pretty good gas mileage. (26mpg hwy-23mpgcty) im sure i would love this car if i had a gt or gtp with more options on it. the only thing i dont like is that is has the 3100 instead of the 3800. which is offered in tyhe other models. and i also think it alows a bit much noise in from the outside.
