    Fun Car To Drive/own If You Have A Winter Car Or A Beater. — To sum it up performance wise its a poor mans Corvette. Had to make a few undesired repairs such as wiper motor/wiper arm and the radiator. The rear differential made a whining noise cruising around 65-70. Sleek styling that doesn't grab too much unwanted attention. Most people think its a grand am haha. Gas mileage was semi-decent due to the 6 speed transmission as long as there wasn't too much spirited driving. Definitely a very fun car to drive.

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

    Pros: Fast, european styling, Australian ride American pride!

    Cons: Big V8 gas mileage, poor build quality

    Limited Production Modern Muscle Car — The car that started the muscle car erra back i nthe 60s! Interior is one of the best interiors Pontiac has ever done. Do not be fooled by its plane jane looks on the outside, crack on the key and release the beast.

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

    Pros: LS Motor

    Cons: Traction

    A Blast To Drive. — Love the unique looks, power and sound. Has the power ti easily light up the rear wheels, and people hear you coming. Easy to have fun. A little heavy for heavy cornering or braking. The six speed gives great highway gas mileage.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun with power.

    Cons: Low-tech

    Not Made For Tall People I Always Hit My Head On The Windsheild Pillar When I Look To Pass. — The car could be a little lighter. It is hard to get into reverse. Down shifting is not very smooth when looking to pass quickly. Accelerates extremely well. Does one Helluva burnout (traction contol off of course)! Will give a Corvette a run for its money. As for a Mach 1 Mustang they haven't gotta chance!!

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

    Pros: Horsepower. Corners well for a heavy rear wheel drive. Independant rear suspension

    Cons: Can't think of any...

    Everybody Who Has One, Loves It. — With a face only a mother could love, and a motor touched by the hand of God himself, the Goat returns for 2004 from the land down under. It's a rebadged Holden Monaro, a platform that has been around since the early 1990s.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Blazing acceleration, great build quality, nice interior, the best seats ever.

    Cons: Bland looks, crappy stock suspension, no large rear tires, and no trunkspace.

    Recommend It To Everyone — I love it, wouldn't have anything else. The power it can produce the ride quality is great. I have had no major problems from my car. This is my second one, we are expecting our first child in October and she will enjoy it as well..lol.

    Pros: Fun!!

    Cons: Some people may want more room, but hey its a sportscar not a minivan

    2004 Pontiac Gto Coupe Gets Two Thumbs Up! — Car has been 100% reliable and utterly maintenance free, apart from schedule. I'm aware of the disappointment among GTO fanciers in the looks department, but I like it's understated profile. Those who know, turn to look. Those who don't, turn to look at the rear bumper when I put the hammer down. I have the special edition with the W40 appearance package, and everyone remarks on the vivid shade of red and the terrific looking interior. Well mannered handling, enough power for the price, and a really fun ride. Hard to beat for the price.

    Pros: Performance, build quality, fun

    Cons: I hate to look at the gas pump.

    Nice New Age Muscle Car — this one was a 475 horse package really through you back in the seat 6 speed hurst on the test drive we hit 110 without thouching 6th and it left a nice mark great muscle car sound even with stock exhaust but it looks like an every day run of the mill sedan othe than the racing sripes and dual exhaust it doen't look like a fast car at all

    Pros: great sound tons of power throws you in the seat

    Cons: doesn't look like a performance car

    2004 Custom Gto — its my brother's car. he bought it and not even 2 weeks later took me out to teach me how to drive stick. i was 15, just finished my first driver's training day and went to drive a 350 horsepower car. great drive though. it now has an iron block v8 bored out to 6.7 liters and pushing 550 horsepower at the wheels. it has a custom wide body kit, 18 inch wheels and a new fiberglass hood. its an amazing car stock but so much better and faster now. love the car and is amazing just to hear rumble

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    Pontiac Gto: A Modern Muscle Car From Australia. — This car is really great. It combines the best parts of European and American cars as they did it in Australia. Performance: Nice torque, solid power, not as explosively fast as my other coupe, but more comfortable. Build quality is adequate, there are some gaps where they aren't supposed to be, but that is not that important to me. There are some design problems in cold winter weather, like the heater needs to be adjusted as it lacks heat to the windscreen and side windows in the same setting and heated seats and mirrors for example. Trunk space is poor as the gas tank is situated inside the trunk instead of the original placement under the trunk. It is also difficult to get into the rear seats. Styling is nice, how they changed basically the styling of Opel Omega into something special, it's based on the same platform, but it's wider, lower and sleeker. Cost of ownership is irrelevant. Gas mileage is a bit poor, but this car is not for anyone who is interested in that. Spare parts can be a problem as the car was never sold officially here in continental Europe and the car is pretty rare here as every car is privately imported. Fun factor is 100+ even I also own an another car with really good fun factor which is even faster than this and has better gas mileage. This is more reliable. The late model Pontiac GTO (and Holden Monaro already before) has been my dream car since 2002 when I saw the first photos of the car. It still is now when I own and drive one.

    Pros: European styling, American power, modern coupe with a V8 engine.

    Cons: trunk space, difficult to get to back seats, gas mileage
