05 Pontiac Grand Prix Base —

It has a good amount of power, probably just what you would expect for a 3.8L V6, but you totally pay for it in city gas mileage. I've been getting under 20mpgs in the city, but I get slightly over 25 on the highway which is very good in my opinion. Cost to own is great, no complaints here... I bought it in 2009 with 85,000 miles on it, and right now it has 120,000 miles. I haven't had to do much work on it, other than oil changes, tire rotations, new tires, brakes, and wheel bearings. All of the mechanical work I've had to do to it is wear and tear. As far as appearance goes, I think it's a great looking car. The only complaint I have is the wheels. I bought mine with steel wheels and hubcabs and those are just about the ugliest things imaginable. The interior styling is great, but plasitc- y just like all GM's. The fabric interior and carpeting has held up very well. And yes, it's fun to drive. Don't get me wrong, it's not a fast car... it'll get up and going pretty well but I've play raced and had my ass kicked by Eclipses and Civics. I think in the end it's just too heavy, but off the line acceleration is good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a nice car if you're on a budget. It'll treat you right as long as you buy one that has been well taken care of and continue to take good care of it.

Cons: Gas mileage, the fact that it's a Pontiac, and of course, with all older vehicles, you're going to run into having to fix wear and tear items.

P G P Gt — The only thing I dislike about this vehicle after owning it for such a short periord of time I replaced the transmission and not only was it an arm or leg to purchase but these mechanics are ridiculous their costs were more than the transmission with warranty cost. I am now thinking of taking up classes at an local tech college for automotive repair. But I love this car great with long distance traveling.good with these gas prices reaching unbelievable amounts.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I LOVE THIS LITTLE CAR AND ALL IT'S FEATURES GREAT HANDLING CAPABILITIES.

Cons: PARTS ARE A BIT COSTLY

What Everybody Needs To Get The Groceries. — This Pontiac Grand Prix GXP has to be the best handling front wheel drive sedan in its class. With the 5.3L V8 it has all the power you need to have fun and it has factory Brembo designed brakes to bring it all to a halt. With the displacement on demand it doesn't get to bad of fuel mileage. I average 22-25 on my hilly 20 mile commute to work. Don't overlook this car when looking at other performance sedan cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A ton of power
Great brakes
Sounds amazing

Cons: Wide tires make Snow and Ice driving a little harry.

Best Car For The Money — I have had this car for about 5 yrs now and i love it. i have a tow package on it and i use it to tow a small trailer from time to time. this car pulls great and you do not even know you are towing anything. I have never had a major issues with this car the only thing I can really talk about is some ABS issues but other than that a great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great ride

Cons: ABS issue

2005 Grand Prix — Overall my Grand Prix is a great car. It has decent performance even though it is a V-6. I get about 22-27 MPG with it. It has decent acceleration and doesn't sound like a riceburner. It also has good looks for a sedan.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable, good performance

Cons: Nothing to plug in my iPod

Great Buy If You Want Reliable And Economical Transportation — performs great, not many cars keep ahead of it, never needed anything except tires=), looks good especially with the tint, 35 mpg when the wife drives, other than that, if we had room for more kids in it that would be all i could ask for

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: when you want to pass you can

Cons: if you have more than 2 kids, no room

Perfection For The Price — I love this car. It might as well come with a Cadi badge! the suspension could be a bit more responsive, But overall for a base edition. You could not ask for more. And it would be much funner outting in this car if the performance was a bit more appealing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Leisure

Cons: Nothing
