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

Pros: HUD, Leather Heated Seats

Cons: I have to get rid of it in a month

Powerful And Fast. — 2005 GTP. Comfortable on the inside with a sleek design on the outside. Under the hood is a 3.8 supercharger series III engine. Factory specs say 270HP. FWD, four door sedan. Fully loaded.

Pros: Leave ricers in the dusk!

Cons: Be sure to fill up afterwards!

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 !

Love! — Ive had my car for almost 3 years and it drives so nice, it is really a heavy duty car. It gets a lot of use on the road as I travel alot. The sun roof has leaked and left watermarks on the inside roof. the paint scratches easily. The interior is comfortable.

This Car Looks Great And Handles Very Good. — The car looks very stylish I have been told and is comparable to other high end midsize cars. It handles great and fuel mileage is not bad either.

For The Money, A Very Nicely Outfitted Sport Family Sedan With Lots Of Standard Features. —

I have had the car over 1 1/2 yrs. It handles nicely for a car its size. It isnt " numble", but doesnt wallow either. Took it on 5 hr trip up to mtns for ski trip last feb 2012, did nicely in some very tight turns and iffy road conditions. The auto headlights/DRL's work nicely, the heated seats are wonderful in the winter and warm up fairly quickly. I get addicted to how easy it is to change stations or songs with the steering wheel radio controls. When not in my car, find myself hunting for the buttons. Power front drivers seat with multi-way back and front support is nice. Like to pump up the lumbar and lean into it. Steering is solid, not to mushy, bit of understeer but only when actually pushing in a corner, which I generally dont do. Have had no mechanicals in this time frame. Battery died, but, thats completely separate. The cruise control does get a little twitchy, when trying to resume after tap on the brakes, if you dont hit it just right, you have to reset it. Not a big deal, and only real electronic glitch I have run into so far. Gas mileage is above what EPA says I should get by a fair margin. EPA is something like 19/26 mpg, even putting from store to store, I have never gone under 23.5 mpg, and hwy I have hit over 29 mpg, usually avg hwy 28-28.5. For a 3.8l V-6 not set for fuel economy, in a car its size and weight, not bad at all. Style isnt bad. Interior room is exceptional. Lots of room in the back seat, and the trunk is enormous. Folding rear seats, and you can take enough stuff with you for two people to go on a 15 day romp across the U.S., and have room for souvenirs . The leather isnt "Cadillac " plushy, but it is pretty comfortable, for a car in this price range. 4 wheel disc brakes, car comes down quick when you lean on the brake pedal, never had an issue there either. Sunroof is powered, nice option to have on fall days. No problem with leaks or movement. These cars in GT form or higher ( you have 3 trim levels with a v-8 also in the highest trim level ) are very loaded. Only thing missing is an MP3 player or aux input. That I do miss, and would consider replacing the stereo for that accessory. But the stereo itself, a Monsoon, had 7 speakers, a nice range, lots of options for tweaking the sound, stations, etc. Ok, on the whole, this is a very solid sport sedan. The engine has plenty of pep, it handles nicely for its size and weight. You have a great deal of room, large supportive seats, smooth transmission, loads of accessories, dual climate controls and dual heated seats. Prices on this car, in solid shape, are reasonable to cheap when compared to pricier vehicles. I dont think you can go wrong with this car, either as your main driver, or as a nice, sporty, but affordable second car or students car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handles well for a car its size. "Sport sedan", Heated leather seats, a/c is very cold, dual climate control. Steering wheel radio controls, enormous trunk, spacious rear seats, comfortable seating for long trips, leather seats, traction control. power sunroof. MPG is well above EPA rating.

Cons: paint on radio controls comes off easy after awhile. car is heavy, if you really REALLY have to go, it will, but you need to stomp it. Gearing in transmission could of been a touch lower in first 3, with the same drop in o/d. But, that is one reason my mpg is probably better than what I am suppose to get.
