New Gxp — The car is amazing, plenty of power, looks and sounds great stock, turns a few heads when people know what they are looking at. Over all a great car, rides nice, very quick and still gets decent mileage. 31.3 mpg on the highway and when I can keep my foot out of it about 22 in town, not to bad for a 5.3 V-8!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome power, good looks, relatively uncommon.

Cons: Mad torque steer, FWD

I Think It Is A Great Car — The acceleration is very good,(if you you floor it you might to a burnout), Braking is quick and excellent, handling is good, but not so quite so much when you try to park. The build quality is great because it is a stiff tough car and needs but needs a good warranty, and doesn't squeak or rattle at all. The appearance of the car is awesome, The exterior and interior are sporty and cool-looking. The MPG is 21 miles with a base v6 version, and maintenance is mostly low. This car is fun to drive and is a cool sports car and family sedan.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The pontiac grand prix is a nice looking family sedan that is fast, sporty, and fun to drive

Cons: the transmission stick can be stiff and the turning radius isn't good

Gxp — I this my car is fun to drive, it has a 5.3L V8 and hauls ass. The car is bulit okay but the plastic rattles inside. I think it looks mean. I have active fuel management so it shuts off half of the cylinders. Its just fun.

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

Pros: its a front wheel drive V8

Cons: they don't make headers for it.

Grand Prix — Its a good car for commuting and hauling people. Its nice when we take it out on the highway as it will get us further on a single tank than my Firebird did. Hoping to wake it up a little with some bolt ons.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Big

Cons: Slow

My Car — It's a basic car, but it has some nice features...remote start is my absolute favorite feature! Wish it had a sunroof, but oh well! It is pretty fun to drive and I feel it is a safe car to transport my baby daughter in.

Pros: Remote start

Cons: No sunroof

Would Be Great If It Only Didn't Have To Turn... —

The Pontiac Grand Prix is no longer being made and is being replaced by the Australian Holden Commodore named the G8. Its fairly large for a car of its price but that price does sacrifice a few things. The 3.8L V6 this car got from Buick is very good, there is no denying that this V6 is probably enough power this car will need making me think the V8 and supercharged V6...excessive. Straight line power is where this car shines. Handling...this is where I think this car flops on. You have a lot of power going to the front wheels moving a heavy vehicle but GM just didn't design a good enough suspension to make this car corner well thus wasting a lot of the engine's power. The G8 should be significantly better being RWD and thus more balanced. The interior...I've never been very comfortable in the seats. They're oddly shaped and I always have to constantly adjust. The rest of the interior isn't exactly terrible, but you just can't say its nice looking since its just pure dark plastic. The wheel is gigantic, it just doesn't need to be this big. It is well equipped for a base car. Built quality is actually quite good for a GM car. To own a Grand Prix...if you bought it new you might not wish to sell it because it depreciates very badly. Great news if you want to buy one used. The large V6 is not fuel efficient along with the heavy body. Its size is good if you want to carry 5 passengers relatively comfortably and need a large trunk. This isn't the greatest looking Grand Prix amongst the whole line. The 2-door from the 80s was clearly the best looking. This car does look aggressive and the powertrain will convince you of this...but without that its largely forgettable.

Pros: Low value makes it cheap to buy used, great engine

Cons: Bad handling, unwelcoming interior, car replacing it is superior

Fast, Stylish, And Fun To Drive — Acceleration is good torque is unbelivable at the front wheels. PBR brakes have good braking and the stock exhaust sounds bettrer than a stock Vette (not Z06 though) over sixe spoiler with the bid forged wheels and cross drilled rotors and the bigger front facia. It is really fun to drive with the tap shift mode.

Pros: Looks power and comfort

Cons: When you first start it the brakes pulsate

Grand Prix Gxp — Love this car... Extremely fast, and agile. People are embarassed when they realize they got beat by a "family" sedan. Interior is too "plasticy" but it looks nice. Mine came fully loaded, with nav, sat, and monsoon sound. The mileage is around 18 city with me driving like the cops are after me. Had it at 135 so far and it felt as solid as my old impala did at 50. Really smooth ride too. Have some aftermarket items, will be getting some more in the spring of '09 when I get back from Iraq

Pros: Performance is great, looks great, "stock" sleeper, Really FAST!!!

Cons: Burns tires even with traction control on... t/c should make it pure excelleration when i punch it.  :)
