Thus Far Dependable — If I hadn't bought the extended warranty some issues would've peeved me to pay for. I.E., early on A/C compressor, some ball joint wear and steering shaft looseness. But all of these were covered and I have otherwise pampered this car.

Great Care Sporty Handling And Has Some Pep In Its Step — I love this car out of all the cars I have owned this one is by far the most fun to drive and mod. It is a shame that pontiac went out of business we have all lost a very good car company

Pros

This car offers the benefits of a refined engine lineup, fine-tuned ride and handling characteristics and a more driver-friendly cockpit with large gauges and, for the most part, simple controls. 17" Wheels. I love the GT over the other trims because of its balance of power, fuel economy and handling.

Cons

Build and materials quality still needs some work, tight backseat, noisy engine.

Fast And Fun To Drive — This Pontiac Grand Prix offers a sensibly sized family sedan, with plenty of performance on tap thanks to the availability of peppy, 260 horsepower, V6 engine. Styling continues to be a draw, with a sweeping roof line and the signature twin-grille nose. If performance is paramount, this car is for you!

Great Little Family Car, Or Even That First Ride — I like the extra space in the trunk as well as the Gt pull when pressing the gas is needed . Roomy rear seat area as well as the convenient trunk release on the drivers door the delayed door lock switch

Pros

It's a nice car if you're on a budget. It'll treat you right as long as you buy one that has been well taken care of and continue to take good care of it.

Cons

Gas mileage, the fact that it's a Pontiac, and of course, with all older vehicles, you're going to run into having to fix wear and tear items.

05 Pontiac Grand Prix Base — It has a good amount of power, probably just what you would expect for a 3.8L V6, but you totally pay for it in city gas mileage. I've been getting under 20mpgs in the city, but I get slightly over 25 on the highway which is very good in my opinion. Cost to own is great, no complaints here... I bought it in 2009 with 85,000 miles on it, and right now it has 120,000 miles. I haven't had to do much work on it, other than oil changes, tire rotations, new tires, brakes, and wheel bearings. All of the mechanical work I've had to do to it is wear and tear. As far as appearance goes, I think it's a great looking car. The only complaint I have is the wheels. I bought mine with steel wheels and hubcabs and those are just about the ugliest things imaginable. The interior styling is great, but plasitc- y just like all GM's. The fabric interior and carpeting has held up very well. And yes, it's fun to drive. Don't get me wrong, it's not a fast car... it'll get up and going pretty well but I've play raced and had my ass kicked by Eclipses and Civics. I think in the end it's just too heavy, but off the line acceleration is good.

P G P Gt — The only thing I dislike about this vehicle after owning it for such a short periord of time I replaced the transmission and not only was it an arm or leg to purchase but these mechanics are ridiculous their costs were more than the transmission with warranty cost. I am now thinking of taking up classes at an local tech college for automotive repair. But I love this car great with long distance traveling.good with these gas prices reaching unbelievable amounts.

What Everybody Needs To Get The Groceries. — This Pontiac Grand Prix GXP has to be the best handling front wheel drive sedan in its class. With the 5.3L V8 it has all the power you need to have fun and it has factory Brembo designed brakes to bring it all to a halt. With the displacement on demand it doesn't get to bad of fuel mileage. I average 22-25 on my hilly 20 mile commute to work. Don't overlook this car when looking at other performance sedan cars.

Best Car For The Money — I have had this car for about 5 yrs now and i love it. i have a tow package on it and i use it to tow a small trailer from time to time. this car pulls great and you do not even know you are towing anything. I have never had a major issues with this car the only thing I can really talk about is some ABS issues but other than that a great car.
