    Really Good Car. — LOVE the heads-up display! And the Dual Air. The acceleration is very good and so is the braking. It also handles very well on corners. The engine has blown twice, both times on interstate at about 80 mph. It still makes funny noises sometime, but I'm not sure if they are all like that or its just mine. Also, the window motors go out worse than the actual motor. And that's NOT just mine. Interior and Exterior styling both are great. It gets about 14 or 15 mpg in town. On interstate: about 24. Its really fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Heads Up Display is AMAZING!

    Cons: The only thing that sucks is some things have to be replaced more than once.

    I Would Buy It All Over Again — What a dream. The Grand Prix was a white 4-door torpedo that drew as many stares as compliments. The naturally-aspirated 3.8L V6 was smooth and powerful, delivering exciting performance and mid-20s economy in mixed driving, and made nice noises under hard acceleration. Knifing through traffic was a cinch and the console- mounted shifter gave complete control of the gears. The leather seats were comfortable if a bit thin on padding, interior quiet, a/c very strong. The stereo and interior trim were excellent. The factory Goodyear Eagle LS rubber was whisper quiet with good grip. Best all- around domestic luxo-coupe ever!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance, build, appearance, regular gas

    Cons: Skimpy seat padding

    I Love Being Noticed In It, But Hate The Build. — I am the second owner to my car. Looks sexy ( I baby the outside and inside of my car) does better on gas mileage now that I have fixed almost everything in the fuel system (not cheap). The downfalls; These cars are TERRIBLE for overheating, even sitting in idle. The thermostat takes forever to open and the radiators are prone to cracking. Be prepared; if you replace the radiator everything else in the cooling system that wasn't replaced will go bad. Has faulty sensors sometimes. If you even run the car down to E before filling up, expect to replace the whole fuel system because the car will die. I'm not impressed with this car and if one thing goes wrong...something else does. The only good thing about this car is that it is comfortable and stylish (maybe thats all GM was going for)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: stylish, sexy, handling is great

    Cons: everything mechanical with this car goes bad (its almost sequential)

    3.8 Liters Of Awesomeness — Just an amazing engine with lot of room for upgrades. Very fun and fast for a cheap penny. All the options that came with it are amazing as well. The only thing wrong with these cars are the window regulators. Mileage is fairly good too. i get almost 30 on the highway

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

    Pros: Fast and fun

    Cons: Goes through windows

    Good Car — reliable car, peppy, comfortable. all in all a pretty nice car. turn off traction control and hit the dirt, it handles allright allittle sloppy. watch out for o2 sensors if you dont change your plugs at a regular basis otherwise the o2 sensor will foul and throw a bad reading

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfort

    Cons: if you wanna stand out in a crowd this is not the car for you, there are so many of these
