Pros

Best bang for the buck.

Cons

There is no reason to avoid this vehicle. Affordable for the price.

Upgrade The Brakes With Aftermarket Gear. — It has more than enough power only drawback is the braking. The brakes could be improved greatly. The cost of ownership for me has been great as I have not had any problems with maintenance of this vehicle. Very reliable transportation.

Pros

Remarkably competent, blindingly fast, yet comfortable car.  6 speed manual feels and drives like a BMW with a Corvette engine... what's not to love?  The '04 design is cleaner (no fake scoops) than the '05/06.  LS1 motor with manual trans gets remarkably good MPG on the freeway!  Most comfortable back seats of any car I've owned, but rear headroom is a little tight for tall people (as in any sports coupe).

Cons

Brakes can be significantly improved by installing 2005/6 rotors and calipers in front, and 2005/6 vented rotors in the rear.  The back of the car looks much better without the wing.  Can't put wider tires/wheels on the car, so get the best tires that you can afford.

Big Fun On A Budget! Fast, Competent, And Comfortable. Who Cares That It Looks Like A Big Toyota? — I got this car new off the dealer's lot where it had been sitting for a year. I didn't go looking for a yellow car, but for 25% off the sticker, I'm glad I got one. Aside from the color, the car is visually inconspicuous... but it is extremely potent! A real "sleeper"! I got it to replace my aging 3rd gen Trans Am, which was beating me up with it's stiff suspension. The GTO is completely different... much faster, much more comfortable, much more composed in the turns. Very easy and rewarding to drive fast. The last generation GTO is a real grand touring car, unlike earlier generations.

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

Pros

Too many to list. Go for a ride in one and you'll understand.

Cons

Bought it used, there's a few minor wear and tear issues to deal with. The traction control gets annoying at times too (I have a heavy foot.) so I usually just turn it off.

Clean, One Previous Owner. I'll Get It When I Finsh Making The Payments. In 3 Years Or So.... — Powerful, fast, and handles like a dream. Cost is low, but when you hit that throttle after you slam it into 4th gear, you feel like a million bucks everytime. Insurance on it isn't too bad either. The only downside is it gets rather expensive filling it with premium unleaded, only because performance suffers a bit on anything less.

2004 Custom Gto — its my brother's car. he bought it and not even 2 weeks later took me out to teach me how to drive stick. i was 15, just finished my first driver's training day and went to drive a 350 horsepower car. great drive though. it now has an iron block v8 bored out to 6.7 liters and pushing 550 horsepower at the wheels. it has a custom wide body kit, 18 inch wheels and a new fiberglass hood. its an amazing car stock but so much better and faster now. love the car and is amazing just to hear rumble

2004 Pontiac Gto Coupe Gets Two Thumbs Up! — Car has been 100% reliable and utterly maintenance free, apart from schedule. I'm aware of the disappointment among GTO fanciers in the looks department, but I like it's understated profile. Those who know, turn to look. Those who don't, turn to look at the rear bumper when I put the hammer down. I have the special edition with the W40 appearance package, and everyone remarks on the vivid shade of red and the terrific looking interior. Well mannered handling, enough power for the price, and a really fun ride. Hard to beat for the price.

Cons

Its seems some of the controls wiring has been crossed.

Love It. — Performance is great. Only thing I would change is the wiring. My controls are messed up sometimes. Had to replace the BCM. But other than that I havent had any problems with it. Its a lot of fun to drive and handles very well. Definitely a car thats going to stay in my driveway!

It's A Gto, Nuff Said — Why this car didn't fly off the showroom floors is beyond me because this is a great car for the money. $33k got me 350 hp/365 tq V8 6speed IRS midsized 2 door coupe (or a 2 door sedan with a really small B-pillar). I've added Kooks SS headers and a Svede1212 intake and she really gets up and goes now, probably around 320-330 RWHP, still have to get a tune. Pedders Xa coilover suspension, lowered about 1.5 inches all around.The seats are comfy and offer a lot of support. The interior is nicer than anything GM ever put out stateside. AND this car puts a HUGE smile on my face everytime I drive it. I LOVE this car!

Built Like A Tank, Runs Like A Race Car, Handles Like A Sports Car — Probably will be the best GTO ever after a few more years have passed. Novices need to exercise care in driving this car. The power to weight ratio is incredible. The handling on mountain roads is outstanding and the braking cannot be faulted.

Don't Let The Look Of The Car Be Your Final Decision -take It For A Spin.... You'll Fall In Love! — Good handling, love the performance-nice kick for being such a small car. no major problems except the radiator blew at 37k miles. Can't find another car within this price range that has 350hp/5.7L. Needs a more "muscle" look, it looks too similar to the Chevy Cobalt which is a big big BIG NO NO! All in all...looks aside, i love it and love to drive it!
