If you can find a manual for under 15k in good condition Id hop on it. Dont bother with the 4l60e (auto). The 04 has the ls1 compared to the ls2 in the 05-06 which is a little quicker but not by much. The sky is the limit with these ls motors. The suspension is super soft GT style, some bushing upgrades and coilovers could be used. Its heavy but super comfortable (most comfortable GM car for the time). If you dont know how to work on vehicles I would buy yourself a Prius or a V6 mustang because these cars need care to be quick, fun and reliable. These LS motors are very sought after in the performance market and the GTOs are becoming more and more rare. Jump on it.

Big Fun On A Budget! Fast, Competent, And Comfortable. Who Cares That It Looks Like A Big Toyota? — I got this car new off the dealer's lot where it had been sitting for a year. I didn't go looking for a yellow car, but for 25% off the sticker, I'm glad I got one. Aside from the color, the car is visually inconspicuous... but it is extremely potent! A real "sleeper"! I got it to replace my aging 3rd gen Trans Am, which was beating me up with it's stiff suspension. The GTO is completely different... much faster, much more comfortable, much more composed in the turns. Very easy and rewarding to drive fast. The last generation GTO is a real grand touring car, unlike earlier generations.

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

Pros: Remarkably competent, blindingly fast, yet comfortable car.  6 speed manual feels and drives like a BMW with a Corvette engine... what's not to love?  The '04 design is cleaner (no fake scoops) than the '05/06.  LS1 motor with manual trans gets remarkably good MPG on the freeway!  Most comfortable back seats of any car I've owned, but rear headroom is a little tight for tall people (as in any sports coupe).

Cons: Brakes can be significantly improved by installing 2005/6 rotors and calipers in front, and 2005/6 vented rotors in the rear.  The back of the car looks much better without the wing.  Can't put wider tires/wheels on the car, so get the best tires that you can afford.

Built Like A Tank, Runs Like A Race Car, Handles Like A Sports Car — Probably will be the best GTO ever after a few more years have passed. Novices need to exercise care in driving this car. The power to weight ratio is incredible. The handling on mountain roads is outstanding and the braking cannot be faulted.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Engine reliability is really superb. I have had no problems ever.

Cons: Two piece driveshaft is a bit wimpy!

Great Car For The Money! — I wasn't excited about the looks of it, wish they had really tried to retro an old 1969 better. The car is very comfortable to drive and it's alot of fun. MPG for a muscle car is pretty good. I would definetly buy another.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a nice handling and comfortable ride for a muscle car.

Cons: Small trunk

The Gto — Bought the car in march 2008 and have been slightly customizing it and modifying it ever since. In a world of Mustangs, camaros, and challengers, this car is a sleeper as there are still people who didn't know Pontiac re- introduced the GTO.

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

Pros: Love this car

Cons: How slow the power seats are

Nice Street Car — Great representation of the GTO, could have used a little better styling but that is what the first GTO was all about. Big engine Base Tempest looks. Handles amazing compared to Mustangs I have owened. Power is great from the LS1 could have used one more gear in the automatic.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power

Cons: Back Seat Entry, Small Trunk

2004 Gto Procharged — Good Car overall Acceleration if you had it super charged would keep an edge out on evo's and sti's without problem cornering is a whole nother ball game though and the car is one of the most fun cars i have had the chance to drive it is very tail happy gas mileage was ok 25 mpg what i saw and it could get you about 500 miles on a tank maintenance was expensive but not that of a japanese or german car

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

Pros: would love to still have this car

Cons: tires get expensive when you like to light them up easily

Pretty Decent Car — would have been better if they produced a lighter edition and made the car length a little shorter, also should have came in white color, but for the year of the car the horse power actually is great and out did its competitors.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: HP from Factory is great, pretty decent gas millage to be a V8, great head and leg room in back seats

Cons: could have done better with the looks, overall car is bigger than most sports cars of its class, Wayy to heavy
