Pros

It's sexy, nice amount of horsepower for a daily driver. Steering and power ate right there when ever you want it. Love the the paddle shifters on the steering wheel!!

Cons

Only made for four years so finding  replacement parts is difficult and costly.

It Had It's Con's, Like Any Car Does But In The End The Pros Definitely Outweigh Them!! — I love this car!!! She always has plenty of sass and power and does exactly as she's told . Although I would have preferred a tranny that's at least capable of handling the same amount of foot pound of torque that the motor is capable of delivering. I find myself holding back at times for fear of an expensive tranny repair

Knight In Shining Armor — OEM tires are sized different front to rear so that conventional tire rotation is not feasible. Minor repairs have been minimal;p. Pontiac crammed a lot of horsepower into a V6 engine compartment. Overall this car has definitely been a satisfactory experience.

It is a great Car beside regular P.M my car has deliver as advertise,Feels,Looks and overall  performance I wouldn't trade for for anything. She is My Baby. I've had plenty of other cars and makes but Pontiac did really good with this one.Pontiac 4 Life.

Cons

Not to many I can say but they should have gave the the passenger the same treatment and made the seat power. But love the flip down front seat for more cargo space :)

Reliable And Powerful — I like everything about this car from Performance,Looks and Gas economy it was build to please its owner and drives. One thing dough, the competition did not know what was coming for them when Pontiac release the 2006 Grand Prix 5.3 L 303 HP 453 pounds of torque all american muscle. There was no Sedan out there that could have competed to its top performance and great handling of the roads as the 2006 Grand Prix GXP . Wide track system that can manage any curves like its on rails. and with its sophisticated system in gas economy that can Provide Displacement on Demand. Sincerely,Pontiac4Life

Fun To Drive Despite Older Platform. — Lots of fun to drive, and I love the color. Surprised a few folks with how fast this car really is. Interior design left some things to be desired, overall cheap feeling despite a few nice details. Don't miss the red gauges.

Awesome — This is a great reliable car that has a ton of power, a stereo that booms and great gas mileage. Over the last four years I have had to do no maintenance and the car has brand new tires. Perfect family car. This is a car for a teenager, big, safe.

Pros

Super charger makes a difference. It sounds nice and looks good. Plenty of space for big folks.

Cons

Somewhat light in weight. Could stick to the pavement better when handling curves. Noisy ride.

06 Grand Prix Gt — Its a shame Pontiac went bye bye. They had a nicely balanced family sport sedan. It is a noisy ride, but that sacrifce for the performance and price is well worth it. Bottom line, for the price you get an athletic vehicle that turns heads, gets average + fuel economy, and is reliable. Stay away from the GXP, and go with the GT if your looking for reliability along with your performance.

My Baby — I love the looks and performance of this car. Get alot of compliments and alot of people saying that has a v8? lol. The ride is a little rough but it makes up for it in performance. And the sound of the exhaust is great.
