Pros

For the price it can't be beat. It's a sleeper for sure.

Cons

The only problems I have are that the trunk is too small.

An Awesome Sleeper. — The GTO is a great car for the price. The first mods that need to be done are the radius rod bushings and a single piece aluminum driveshaft. After those must have upgrades I would recommend a set of shorty headers and exhuast. I've had mine for 9 years and its been pretty reliable. I think I've gone through a radiator and 1 set of front brakes.

Exactly What I Wanted — You have to know what you are in for with this car. Fast and fun to drive. Don't plan too many family trips though. Can't wait to get it on the track and have some real fun. Only a few modes but that is all you need.

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

Pros

Big back seat. Fits children perfectly with a lot of space.

Cons

It's a 6.0 engine yes gas mileage is not great compared to an economy car. But you do not buy a GTO for that.

Awesome Car Needs No Repairs Or Maintenence. — I love these cars I've had 2 2006 GTOs. It's the only car you can get a corvette v8 six spee manual and fit the family in. They handle very well. Ride very well. And Maintenence is very cheap. Of course it's a GTO what's not to like.

Great package. Corvette 6.0 Litre. Stainless steel long tube headers. Stainless steel Magnaflow exhaust with attractive chrome tips. K+N air filter. Good fuel economy.

Cons

Two door only

Clear — Great packaging. These cars were very well executed. The orange exterior really shines. The subtle black leather interior is very tasteful! Comfortable vehicle for four adults. Independent rear suspension, handles extremely well. These cars turn allot of heads! Getting hard to find in this condition.

Lots of power for a reasonable price

Cons

Little to no cargo space, fuel tank is literally in the trunk.

Sweet Ride! — I love my car, corvette engine and tranny without the annoying 'vette price tag attached. Still beefy enough to quiet the kids around in their rice rockets and not even have to do anything but turn it on and let it rumble.

Great Muscle Car — This is a very comfortable and fast car. Based on the Holden Monaro but made for the US market. The optional 6 speed makes for a very enjoyable experience as well. Many owners will say the seats in the gto are the most comfortable of most cars in this class.

The MPGs

A Very Fun Toy For The Weekend — When i saw that it had 400HP stock, i told myself i must have it, i must say i was impressed by the brute power of this car, Only downside i have found so far, with brute power comes unsettleing MPGs.

Pros

Awesome power, will outperform anything it or near it's price range. Looks like nothing else on the road, very rare to see another one.

Cons

Very small trunk, some model specific parts can be a bit pricey as they need to be imported from Australia. Some dealers may not be very knowledgeable as they are quite rare.

Great Performer, Not A Family Car. — Great car if you like people always asking what it is. It is rare enough that the majority of people are clueless when they see it. Has more power than most will ever need, and handle like it's on rails. Best car I have ever owned, but time for something with a larger backseat and some cargo room.

Bolt On 2006 Gto — Great car, stock 4L60e does not like 140+ mph. Car ran a 12:41 at 109.5 with just bolt on's, got 23.5 MPG with just axle backs on it at the time, Fast Flashy and Fun for a cheap price.
