    Lighning Fast Acceleration, Great Handling And Braking — I've owned this car for a year now and I havent had any problems so far. I am always ahead of the pack when the light turns green with little effort. It came with a drivers package (Dual exhaust, Remote ignition, leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter). The widetrak allows it to handle very well at high speeds, I had it gong 185 km/h with no problems. This model was produced in the award wining Oshawa GM plant and won a J.D. Power and Associates award for least problems reported per 100 cars for 2006.Overall this is one of the best cars I've ever driven and I would recommed this car.

    Pros: Fast acceleration, plenty of cargo room, comfortable ride, nice exterior, Great stock features.

    Cons: Lackluster materials on door panels,Stiff back seats

    Excelent Car — I would Highly recommend this car. No Car currently on market can compete with what Pontiac Grand Prix provided for the price of (mid 20K) The car represents what Pontiac is known for "Performance at a reasonable price" Even Though it is a FULL SIZE car I know it can give many 6 cylinder mustangs a run for their money. (Even with the smallest engine GM put in the vehicle) Handling is excellent especially for a full size!!!!!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great amount of power is available with the Naturally Aspirated 3800 V6.
    Excellent GAS Mileage for a 3.8L engine. Have routinely averaged on highway 30-40+ MPG  for long distances; speed, traffic, terrain, and weather depended.

    Great handling.

    Amazing braking brought the car to a full stop in under 1 car length from 40 mph under emergency braking conditions. (ABS Fully locked)

    Fold flat front seat really comes in handy when transporting long materials (such as lumber) With seat folded have easily fit 12 foot long 2x4's in the car with the trunk closed

    Front racing inspired Bucket seats Extremely Comfortable (Leather option) First coment when ever anybody gets in the car. These seats are amazing!

    Car Handles diving in snow with LOT of tire spin though.

    Great Sound System (clear, loud, great bass) Radio antenna is hidden in back window (no need for worrying about taking off the antenna at the car wash)

    Large trunk. Trunk hinges are located in the jam between the trunk lid and body of the vehicle. NO long arms to support the trunk lid that take up space when closed.

    Computer is Extremely easy to navigate

    Cons: Side mirrors Ice easily (should have been heated - i just have a can of deicer in the car)

    My car only has the enhanced traction system would recommend the upgrade of traction control (too much torque on take off causes you to burn out a lot).

    Doors open into hood. the One inch gap between the door, windshield and hood likes to gather ice preventing the front doors from opening when the car is iced over. Ice is easily removed with fingers or melted with deicer

    Lacking Rear Windshield Wiper

    Back seat leg room. (I'm tall so the driver seat is pushed way back) Great for 3 people. I only transport 3+ individuals on occasion, Plenty of room though for short drives (under 2hrs)

    Good Car — It's pretty quick. It's a great car, pretty good-looking and spacious on the inside. Plenty of trunk space too. It's fun to drive, practical, and not too expensive. The only unreliable part is the plastic heater hose bypass elbows cracked and leaked out coolant, causing the heater to not work, then the engine to overheat. I replaced them with aluminum ones, so I shouldn't have that problem again. I get excellent fuel economy, up to 33 mpg when I drive carefully.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I drive it.

    Cons: They stopped making it.
