    My First Car — great handling, low and wide, takes curves amazingly, gorgeous green color :) my fave color is green so, :) tinted windows, beautiful, i put it in a ditch and was able to drive it away. ery reliable

    Pros: color, handling, stereo, volume controls on steering wheel, roomy back seat (wink, wink)

    Cons: two door, so it's kinda tricky getting in the back seat

    It's Getting Tired In Its Old Age. — When I first got it, it was a dream come true. I loved the style and for a v6 it kicked some a$$

    Pros: the power is still there

    Cons: the body rotted out under all the ground effects

    Ooohhhhhh Yyyyaaaaa Baby!!! — Bring on the thunder in this bad boy sedan, wish I still had it, it was the stud grocery getter of all stud grocery getters. 0-60 in the 7 flat range, gets it done for a sedan!

    Pros: ya, pretty much everything, what an upgrade from the saturn

    Cons: used premium fuel, but got like 30 mpg, as long as you stayed off the supercharger.

    Great Car And Looked Pretty Decent — Its a great car... The gtp would be a better option but the gt still looked good and had good handling for the size of car it was

    Pros: Looked good and had very spacious interior

    Cons: pretty big car women might find it hard to park

    Surprising Performance + Impressive Durability = Winner! — I bought my 1997 GTP coupe from a friend in 2006 for only $2500, with 136,000 miles on the clock. It needed a little TLC (window regulator, supercharger drive coupler, etc) but otherwise was quite sound. When driven carefully, I can get 29-31 mpg highway, 18 city, with a weekly average of 24 mpg. Of course, I had to take it to the dragstrip, and on it's first trip down the track, it ran a 14.6 @ 94.8 mph, beating a Foxbody 5.0. With my wife at the wheel! Strong runner, great looks, and though small things might need repairs now & then, the major components are rock solid (at least in stock form). Even at high mileage, it runs like a top, shifts crisply, and uses no oil between changes. The Series II 3800 is an outstanding powerplant.

    Owner for 1 years, 4 months

    Miles Driven per Year:12,000

    Pros: Strong performer, great looks, lots of room, great deal for the money. Main drive components are bulletproof.

    Cons: Interior is cheap-looking, fit & finish is less than stellar, minor repairs needed from time to time as little stuff breaks.

    Amazing Car — I don't dislike anything about this car. It's easy to work on as well as fairly inexpensive to fix anything broken. I love it. It's fast, it's good-looking, it's reliable. It's got tons of room, too. No one is ever cramped. I could fit 3 bodies in my trunk just fine.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quick. Easy to handle. Easy to work on

    Cons: It's older so things break.
