Nice Car but a Automatic! Price was a bit High, cant blame to get all the money for this car. If a 6 Speed and 18 inch wheels it would be worth more.

Overall:

Fast, Powerful, Fun And Demands Respect — I installed a small performance camshaft and valve springs when the engine only had 5500 miles on it. At 6200 miles I broke a valve spring and dropped a valve into the engine which hand grenaded. I put a Scoggin Dicky 416 CID engine with L92 heads. The new engine dyno'd at 515 HP / 501 TQ. But It had so much power that I had a hard time putting the power to the pavement; i.e. good traction in 1st & 2nd gear was only a pipe-dream. Loved the car though and would love to have another one.

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

Pros: Power and easily upgradable LS2 engine

Cons: Traction and weight

A Real Head Turner, A Blast To Drive — I absolutely love this car. The driver's seat is extremely comfortable for long distance driving. The engine purrs at speed, power is immediately available when you need it. The tranmission makes smooth shifts. I've had no major mechanical issues. Complete brake job done recently. This is a fun car, subtle looks hide great power.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, great acceleration, smooth engine and transmission, very smooth at speed

Cons: gas mileage, small trunk space

Those Aussies Sure Know How To Build A Car! — The GTO can be used for a variety of purposes. It fits well as a commuter car and a weekend car, and performs both quite well. I would recommend the new GTO to anyone looking for a modern muscle car with old school power and new school looks. Thank you GM for bringing this car to America!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable power

Cons: No looks from other drivers, blends into the background when parked

A Classic American Muscle Car With Hot Looks — Handling , braking and overall performance is spectacular. Even though the trunk is very small, the back seats are roomy and the front seats area great. Draws looks wherever you go. The sound system is first rate with Bluetooth mike synced to my smartphone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling, power and interior comfort, especially the front seats which are the most comfortable of any car I have ever been in.  Rear wheel drive is a classic.

Cons: 15 MPG city, 19 MPG highway, small trunk.

I Dont Regret The Purchase, I Wish I Had More Time To Drive It. — I like most everything about this car, it was a great purchase. The car gets looks everywhere I go. The finish is flawless and it still has that new car smell. The only drawback was the trunk size. Its very fast

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

Pros: Rare low production very fast

Cons: Some think its unattractive, I like the smooth style and its stance

These Cars Are Beasts — awesome performance for half the cost. these cars will out-handle out-accelerate just about any mustang. its a shame that pontiac is out of buisness because the future this car would have had would have been amazing, but now they are destined to be collectorsitems

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

Pros: awesome performance

Cons: very underated
