06 Grand Prix Gt — Its a shame Pontiac went bye bye. They had a nicely balanced family sport sedan. It is a noisy ride, but that sacrifce for the performance and price is well worth it. Bottom line, for the price you get an athletic vehicle that turns heads, gets average + fuel economy, and is reliable. Stay away from the GXP, and go with the GT if your looking for reliability along with your performance.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Super charger makes a difference. It sounds nice and looks good. Plenty of space for big folks.

Cons: Somewhat light in weight. Could stick to the pavement better when handling curves. Noisy ride.

My Baby — I love the looks and performance of this car. Get alot of compliments and alot of people saying that has a v8? lol. The ride is a little rough but it makes up for it in performance. And the sound of the exhaust is great.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car is awsome. Lots of power, good handling, awsome apperance, good sound.

Cons: When putting the pedal to the flood the steering likes to wonder alittle.

Better Than An Str8 — Its fun to drive, great sleeper and compromise. Comfortably seats 6' adults in the back seat. 90k miles and only repairs have been under warranty. Some owners complain about transmission problems but they drive the cars hard and do not put a tranny cooler. Install a bar in plate tranny cooler and synthetic tranny fluid and you wont have any issues with the tranny. The heat is what kills it. I have towed 3000lbs trailer 70mph for 260miles and tranny temps only got up to 208. Prior to tranny cooler adn synthetic fluid 217* while running down the interstate was normal. ** re manufactured transmission usually void the warranty if tranny temps reach or exceed 260* (there is a temp sensitive sticker they put on the tranny)**

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a sleeper, no one thinks or expects the Grand Prix family car to have the power it done. Its performance numbers rival the pre 11 mustang GTs.

Cons: Its FWD, makes traction a bit of a problem when racing plus that configuration they had to make the intake and exhaust rather restrictive.

2006 Grand Prix Special Edition — I have loved these cars for many years now. Started with my 1999 GTP which was quick and fun to drive. I now have this one plus another 2006 supercharged. They have been the most reliable cars I have owned including the bullet proof 3.8L drivetrain.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fantastic reliable pleasure to drive head turner.

Cons: Could have a bit more headroom in the front seat.

Makes You Feel Like The Meanest S.o.b. On The Road. That V8 Rumbles Just Right. —

I got this as a replacement for a 1998 Monte Carlo Z34 that met an early end after encountering a patch of ice on a New York hillside road. It was shopping mainly for Mustang GT's, 2006-2007 Monte Carlo SS's and the odd Charger R/T. This thing caught my eye in a dealership parking lot and when I saw the V8 badge thought at first I was looking at a GTO. I had no idea that they had shoe-horned a 5.3 V8 into a Grand Prix! What I like about the car... Power. Loads and loads of power. 303 hp in stock trim, plenty to use during the stoplight to stoplight "show and tell" sessions. The amenities in this car are well thought out. Heads Up Display that gives you the vehicle speed, gear selected (when in manual shift mode), warning messages, all kinds of information, with even more on the driver's information center in the console. Wheel-mounted paddle shifters (might be better placed on the steering column, but still.. at least they're THERE), 6 CD Monsoon stereo system, leather wrapped steering wheel, leather seats, moonroof/sunroof, flip down rear seats for expand trunk storage, AND the front passenger seatback folds FLAT so you can carry up to 9ft long items! Oh... did I mention this thing has POWER? Yeah, I thought I might have. It's applied through the front tires folks. That's my only complaint. This much power needs to go to the rear wheels. Fancy engineering and fatter tires up front than in back, however, help keep it all manageable. Displacement On Demand helps keep this V8 from drinking TOO much fuel, but only on the highway. In town, it's a thirsty beast! And those tires bring me to the major downside. Tires are expensive for this beast, they are NOT rotatable, and if you drive this in a spirited manner, you'll be buying lots of 255R45/18's!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's unusual.  It's powerful.  It's gonna make you smile!

Cons: If you're looking for a gas-sipper, move on, this ain't it.

Lots Of Space, Quiet, And Fast — Performance -This car has plenty of power thats for sure, I can't tell you how many times I've squealed the tires on accident. So much torque. It gets going fast to it does 0-60 in about 6 seconds flat, so there's great acceleration. Braking isn't perfect, it doesn't exactly stop on a dime, but that's mainly due to this car has a lot of weight, average braking. It corners great, body roll is at a minimum, a very fun car to drive. Build quality- It's pretty decent, things in the interior aren't very ergonomical, seats are heavily bolstered, but not very forgiving on long trips. Dashboard rattles a little bit, but I think that's just mine. Very quiet cabin. Apperance -Very recognizable, very unique, quite sporty Cost of Ownership -It does tend to suck down the gas like it is it's job. I put in a high performance air filter in and that helped a little. 17 gallon gas tank

Pros: It's very quick, very fun to drive, great looks, trunk is huge, front is very spacious

Cons: Not a lot of room in the back seat, legroom nor head room, gas mileage isn't stellar

Perfect Starter Car If Your Into Sleepers — The car has a lot of torque for a fwd, and handles amazingly. It would be better if it was rwd, but you get what you pay for. It has an aggressive stance that is really eye catching. Plus eveyone gets out of my way on the highway. ( They think its a undercover car) :-)

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

Pros: Good performance for its price tag

Cons: Not a lot of leg room in the rear seats
