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.

Pontiac Gto: A Modern Muscle Car From Australia. — This car is really great. It combines the best parts of European and American cars as they did it in Australia. Performance: Nice torque, solid power, not as explosively fast as my other coupe, but more comfortable. Build quality is adequate, there are some gaps where they aren't supposed to be, but that is not that important to me. There are some design problems in cold winter weather, like the heater needs to be adjusted as it lacks heat to the windscreen and side windows in the same setting and heated seats and mirrors for example. Trunk space is poor as the gas tank is situated inside the trunk instead of the original placement under the trunk. It is also difficult to get into the rear seats. Styling is nice, how they changed basically the styling of Opel Omega into something special, it's based on the same platform, but it's wider, lower and sleeker. Cost of ownership is irrelevant. Gas mileage is a bit poor, but this car is not for anyone who is interested in that. Spare parts can be a problem as the car was never sold officially here in continental Europe and the car is pretty rare here as every car is privately imported. Fun factor is 100+ even I also own an another car with really good fun factor which is even faster than this and has better gas mileage. This is more reliable. The late model Pontiac GTO (and Holden Monaro already before) has been my dream car since 2002 when I saw the first photos of the car. It still is now when I own and drive one.

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!

I Love This Car — This car is by far my favorite car I've owned. It is comfortable for 4 people, even for my friend that is 6'3 when he is sitting in the back. It is stock with 350 horsepower and does 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. not sure what the top speed is, but it's at least 155.

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.

Great Car For The Money! — I wasn't excited about the looks of it, wish they had really tried to retro an old 1969 better. The car is very comfortable to drive and it's alot of fun. MPG for a muscle car is pretty good. I would definetly buy another.

The Gto — Bought the car in march 2008 and have been slightly customizing it and modifying it ever since. In a world of Mustangs, camaros, and challengers, this car is a sleeper as there are still people who didn't know Pontiac re- introduced the GTO.

Nice Street Car — Great representation of the GTO, could have used a little better styling but that is what the first GTO was all about. Big engine Base Tempest looks. Handles amazing compared to Mustangs I have owened. Power is great from the LS1 could have used one more gear in the automatic.

2004 Gto Procharged — Good Car overall Acceleration if you had it super charged would keep an edge out on evo's and sti's without problem cornering is a whole nother ball game though and the car is one of the most fun cars i have had the chance to drive it is very tail happy gas mileage was ok 25 mpg what i saw and it could get you about 500 miles on a tank maintenance was expensive but not that of a japanese or german car

Street Monster — Overall the car is great. A lot of people under estimate the gto. Mods to the LS1 take very easily. Just a intake and headers will gain you around 50hp to the rear wheels. If you are looking for a head turning street monster. Look no further!!! The only reason I am selling my GTO is to make room for the new baby.
