Teenagers Car — I liked it because it was cheap on gas and it did not break down, tires wear good, stereo has its flaws,slow on big hills, but always gets you there.if you need a cheap economy car this is hard to beat.

Performance and Handling

Cons

nothing such an awesome car

45

Get It! — Performance is outstanding, acceleration is good, braking stops on a dime, handles like a sports car with responsive steering. Car itself is pretty nice nothing wrong from factory. It's quite fun to drive and it handles like a charm. Sound system is the bomb, stock sounds better than most aftermarket systems. Gas mileage and maintenance is low, gets close to 20-25 city and over 30 on the highway.

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

Good Car For The Money. — Good looking car, very reliable, pretty good ride. Nice all around commuter car. Head lights are very good and lights up the road well, I added HID and usually that’s a big improvement but they were not a big deal but made the car look better at night. Only 2 problems in 125,000 miles; First the Catalytic Converter clogged but warranty covered that, 2nd variable valve timing solenoid failed, out of warranty so I got one online $60 and installed it in about 10 minutes, very easy to access. Only had to replace front pads twice and rear pads once.

Pros

This car is very comfortable to ride in. Lots of leg room in the front and back seats. It is a very classy looking car and gets noticed wherever you are. It handles well on curvy roads.

Cons

The only negative thing is the gas mileage in town. Hwy driving is good, I get 32mpg but around town is about 16 to 17mpg.

Classy Look And Fun To Drive! — I really like all the options the car came with and the comfort of the car. I really don't like the gas mileage in town. However, I would highly recommend this car to people. It is a well built car with driver, passenger and curtain air bags.

Classy And Comfortable — There is nothing I dislike about this car. The looks, the power, the comfort, the reliability is all there. I have people stop me all the time asking about the car. It is rare, only 2500 manufactured. It is fun to drive!

Pros

This car is nice and comfy and makes great for long trips. Plenty of room and little noise when driving. The engine is very nice and smooth.

Cons

Gas milage is not the best, only getting 17mpg city. It's only bad if you drive it fast!

Fun, Sport, Family Car. — This car gets the job done. From going fast and having fun, to transporting your family members, and to just taking a little sunday drive; it does it all. The A/C is nice, strong and cold for those hot summer days and you also have the sunroof. This is a great first car for anyone and will be a great deal of fun for anyone who is lucky to have it.

Pros

I like the quick acceleration when needed. The car is fun to drive.

Cons

I dislike the overall handling characteristics. Backing (without mirrors) can also be difficult.

Middle Of The Road. — I dislike the turning radius of this car; also its backing characteristics. Huge blind spot. On the plus side, I enjoy its performance. It's very quick and agile in cornering and stable on curves. Braking capability is excellent. In all a nice ride. Buy another? Nah!

Hi, Here's A Car. — Miles over the previous Grand Am, almost CamCord feel to it, typical GM build quality.

One Of The Best Cars Out There For The Money — The cars acceleration for this V6 is brutal. It will throw you side to side if you don't respect it. The brakes stop on a dime. The car is more than willing to be thrown around corners. It seems quite happy to be driven hard. The build quality is very well. There is nothing else that looks like the GXP on the road today. If you put cruise control on the highway at about 70 mph, you can get about 36 MPG. Maintenance is pretty simple. This car is incredibly fun to drive.
