Like It — Fast acceleration and tight suspension. it has needed no repairs since i owned it. the syling is nice. The sunroof is nice to have, although i have heard the motor wears out. It gets good gas milage for 260 horse V6. i get about 27 on the highway...low 30's if i take it easy. Its a real fun and fast car to drive, and i can haul the daughter around in it too.

Pontiac went under

Solid Car, Very Good First Car, I Will Probably Keep It For A Long Time. — This is a very good first car, it was really easy to work on. Parts will probably shoot up becuase Pontiac went under but that's ok. I have tinted headlights, taillights, and windows on it. I have a K&N Cold Air Intake on it, Pulstar pulse plugs, and red neon for the undercarriage. Very good car, daily driver. Nice on gas, nice hp.

Pros

Can be modded easily and is capable of 11 second 1/4 miles.

Cons

Mono-colored dash, could use a curb weight reduction, horrible car to launch consistently.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix Gtp Comp G — Performance is excellent for a 4 door car. With minor tweaks the car easily makes it into the low 14 second range in the 1/4mile. Build quality and fit and finish is excellent also no gaps or flushness issues.

Pros

Mileage, Reliability

Cons

It's a 4 door.

My Viv. — Her name is Vivian. She has reliably driven me over 127,000 miles, and I haven't had one hitch, and hopefully never will. Yes, she is a North American made Pontiac (made in Canada). My gas mileage is really good. I normally average 25 to 28 mpg, and this is with a big V6 engine. I'll probably have her for awhile yet, because I still have monthly payments. She is roomy enough, versatile, relatively quick, good handling, smooth riding. I bought her used, with 6,000 miles. If I am going to keep her beyond 200,000 miles, I should probably get new tires, new brakes, and a tune-up done. There are a couple of bulbs out on the dashboard & radio, but I am surviving without them.

Pros

A very pratical car for those who still like to have a little fun.

Cons

Automatic transmission takes away from a large portion of the torque that the car actually produces, and the tranny is sometimes reluctant to downshift.

Great For Hauling Tons Of Stuff While Still Keeping The Soul Of A Race Inspired Car. — One of the best large sedans I have ever driven. I would compare the handling to a BMW 3 series or maybe even a 5 series; however, the large mass of the car is shown when cornering hard, but it still takes the turns well for being so large. Plenty of low end torque, but lacking in top end horsepower.

Still Turning Heads. — This car exceeded my expectations. To put it plainly, this vehicle is a beast! It runs extremely smooth and quiet, but don't mistake smooth and quiet for weakness... it is a very powerful vehicle. No problems passing on the freeways. There have never been smokers in the vehicle so the overall look, smell and feel of the interior has been preserved quiet nicely. Beyond, minor wear and tear, there have been no major malfunctions with this vehicle. Whatever the usage is, this vehicle is equipped to handle accommodate it.

Pros

If you don't care so much about up to date technology, but love what a car has under the hood, then this car rocks.  The GTP is a V6 supercharged beast!  I like to call it the poor man's Vette.  It has a power sunroof, tire pressure sensors, info center, AM/FM/CD.  Oh, and did I mention a growling motor!?  I have only had to replace the alternator once, which was an easy do-it-yourself job, and a thermostat.  Another easy job.  

Cons

Low tech inside.  However, it does have power seats, delay power locks, info center including tire pressure sensors.  It does not have navigation, Bluetooth, XM, or remote start, but not many cars did back then.  Although some Grand Prix of this year had a HUD, this one does not.  The tires are a bit steep in price as this car requires a sporty tire.  Not the best on gas with that darn supercharger, maybe around 18-20 mpg. But hey, this was a 2004 car, when gas was still cheap!

Sporty And Fun — This car can really make your heart throb when you lay down the pedal. You remember the old Pontiac slogan, "We build excitement"? Well, there is plenty of excitement in the GTP series. Great for a new driver who wants to feel like he/she has something sporty.

Gtp -got The Power — Overall this is a well balanced car, speed, looks, comfort. Acceleration is very good for a mid sized car, it will get moving in a hurry. There is plenty of trunk space and front leg room for taller drivers. The heated seats really come in handy during the winter time.

Sharp — It has been a great car! I have had zero issues with it since I bought it, just regular oil changes and tires! Very comfortable and good for long trips. Has a 3.8 engine so it moves pretty good for me!

Pros

A good sport sedan for in town and long road trips

Cons

Back seat was comforatable but with limited headroom.

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt — The Pontiac Grand Prix GT had generous power from a 3.8L V-6. As a sport sedan, it was nimble and had good acceleration. The interior styling was nicely done but the back seat suffered. The dash layout centered around a large speedometer and great center console. The Monsoon sound system was fabulous with both a CD and cassette player. 2004 was before the MP3 player explosion, so it did not have an auxiliary input. The leather seats were extremely comfortable. The backseat angled down a little, making it difficult to get in and out of the rear. Also, the slope of the roof gave very little headroom for back seat passengers. A great sport sedan, but passengers over 6 feet tall would not like the back seat for very long. Trunk was spacious, so as long as you do not have 4 tall people in the car, it made for a great road trip.
