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

Totally Worth It — It does alright for being a stock sports car. I'm planning on doing some upgrades tho. Lot's of miles so it's got some smaller issues with more to come, but I'm gonna bite the bullet and fix all of them when they come.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's fast, glued tothe road, and just looks sweet.

Cons: A little high maintenance

Loved It, Wish I Still Had It, Will Always Miss It — I loved this car and will miss it forever! Preformance-Acceleration, top speed, handleing and breaking were FANTASTIC for a 4000lbp 3.8L V6 (I got it to 120 MPH) Build Quality- I didnt have mutch luck as far a durrability gose with it, but thats simply because of the cars previous owner(s) Apperience- In general, they looked fantasic but my car was a 10ft car, it looked great untill you got closer than 10ft away. Cost of ownership- Great gas milage even driveing it hard. Fun Factor- Two thumbs up!!!!!

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

Pros: VERY fun to drive, VERY fast, VERY nice

Cons: gets stuck in anything slicker than your average wet asfault

Really Nice — I like the look and the appearance the car gives off coming down the road, but when u put the pedal to the floor u go but not fast. The 3.8l V6 is nice on gas, but if it were up to me i would substitute the gas for a nice V8 350

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

Pros: Fun,Economical, T-Tops

Cons: its only a V6 Automatic

Greatest Cars Ever 4th Gen F-bodies — I love my car! It looks amazing. the aerodynamics are great. It is easily modified. There is a huge aftermarket for it . You can change anything you want and build it to whatever power level you would like from mild street to insane strip! You can modify the engine, transmission, brakes, body, interior, suspension, Forced induction, nitrous, Etc... I have not done many upgrades yet, But I put a K&N intake on it, that will soon be replaced by an SLP Intake. I put Pace Setter Ceramic coated headers, and a full Magnaflow exhaust, a Hotchkis adjustabe panhard rod, An Inland Empire single piece aluminum drive shaft, and drilled and slotted rotors.

Pros: Easilly Modified, Fun To Drive, Relatively Inexpensive, Very easy for a proffesional to modify.

Cons: A little hard for an amature to work on.

Gets More Than The Job Done — basically this car rocks.the cops seem to love it as much as i do. its a spectacular rush very time you step on the gas. the only problems i have had with it would be regularly scheduled maintenance, a couple of window motors and little annoying vandalists who like to do stuff to any car nicer than their's.

Pros: lots of power and plenty of torque to please any power loving car freak

Cons: very small back seat, i wish it was a 6 speed

One Of Pontiac's Greatest Achievements! — I've driven this car for 2 years now and i tell you it still drives like the day i got it. It has the WS6 performance package so power and handling is never an issue. its always eager to spin the tires. The interior is great as well. The Monsoon stereo is crystal clear and gives off plenty of bump, especially when hooked up to the 10" Fosgate T2 i have in the back. Overall, i wouldn't trade this car for the world!

Pros: 11 years old, stock, and still faster than most cars today

Cons: Gas is beginning to become an issue now

Super Car — An exceptional car. I have had the car for four years and it still amazes me. The power and ease of driving this car is great. The faster you go the better the car handles. The only problem is the seats, they could be a little more firm. I will pass this car on to my son.

Owner for 2,171 years, 4 months

Miles Driven per Year:2,500

Pros: Handling, power and over all good looks

Cons: Cheap construction of the interior
