    Exciting Balance Of Performance, Comfort, And Economy —

    Great balance of comfort, performance, and economy. These car's (GTP or GXP) are quick and handle well for a 4 door mid/full sized car. The fuel economy is better than average for a car in this performance bracket, however, don't expect it to get hybrid like MPG. The engine is a 3800 series III which has proven itself to be one of the most reliable motors on the market. The car has a fairly stiff suspension for better cornering performance but is still very drivable for long trips (for me, it is a good balance). The interior isn't luxurious (mine has grey leather), it is designed to have a sporty performance feel and has Pontiac distinctiveness. The instrument cluster is well designed and has a mean looking red backlight. Some of the other interior elements have a cheep plastic feel but it blends in well enough with the utilitarian performance look. I find the front bucket seats to be adequately comfortable but the back seat is very cramped for a car in this class. If that is a factor for you, look at the Impala SS. Overall a good car, functional, fun to drive, maintenance and repair costs are reasonable.

    Pros: Fun to drive, powerful, decent design, reliable and serviceable drivetrain, sporty but functional

    Cons: cheapish interior, very low ground clearance, cramped back seat

    Buy American! — The Base Pontiac Grand Prix 3.8L series III is not bad as most would think. THe fact is that the car gets flack as an under dog in the mod world. in fact Pontiac engines are so rare to find in its older ancestors (before 78') that pontiac just breeds rarity and thats why they are my favorite cars. Its so great to see the look on a honda/ ford owners face when i smoke them as at 120 miles per hour on the free way. its a great feeling.

    Pros: Handling, speed, cold air, easy mod.

    Cons: Traction control never shuts off, car weight.

    Wow!!! — Great handling, pickup, I picked up the GT2 so it's fully loaded! Performance isn't really much of an option, yet...it still contains the GM 3800 series motor. I paid $18,660 roughly for the car and it is the best thing I have owned so far! But I have a thing for silver pontiacs!!!

    Pros: The entire car is great! Pontiacs are the wasy to go!

    Cons: Don't really have any negatives!

    Fast, Fun Car — With this car, even the base model is really fast. I think that they tried too hard to make it perform good though, and didnt spend enough time on the interior. It has really good pickup for example if I'm gonna pass someone, and im going say 50 when i start to pass, by the time I get back over, I'm going 90 easily without even noticing.

    Owner for 0 years, 3 months

    Pros: Very good pickup, looks awesome, good control at high speeds.

    Cons: Plastic dash, overall not too impressed with the interior.

    Sweet Ride — I've had this car since 2005, and it's actually the 2nd one I've had. The HUD is the "key" feature on the gtp

    Looks Great...but Put Together Very Cheep !!! — Lots of power for just a V6 under the hood. again looks are top nutch in my book but is not strong under neeth at all. 2 years into the lease and there was a problem with the power steering , the sway bar linkage both sides in the front needed replaced , brakes needed replaced one month after we got it . They claimed the factory brakes where experimental and are not working out so they came up with a new material and it did work intill you get them wet and then the same old sound is back every time. but if you want to spank all over......almost everything on the road get a car with a 1600 series motor WOW !

    Pros: looks great

    Cons: cheep , cheep, cheeply made !
