Amazing — I love the power and the look of this car! Its amazing!! This is my second GXP! Great price for a sports car 5.3L V8 engine with this many extras. Its a shame they don't make these anymore. And if muffler sounds are something to appreciate then you'll love this car even more! Has a dual exhaust rumble that people stop to notice!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: V8 power is exceptional. Handling is exceptional because of the wide wheel base. Front wheel drive. Quality built GM product is very sturdy, products used to make this car are top of the line.

Cons: Repairs to a V8 motor are more expensive than standard engines whether car or truck.

Great Car I Will Never Get Rid Of It! — I love everything about this car so far for the most part, it moves when you need it to and can take turns at high speeds like an indy car lol, I have had a chance to drive this car out of state and loved the ride, the V-8 is pretty thirsty as expected however for me the performance is worth it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything, I have had my Grand Prix GXP for a couple of months now and love it, I have the heads up display, sun roof, V-8, great handling, FAST!!!, and looks good.

Cons: Back seat head room is lacking and it is not as wide inside as it looks outside.

Best 4 Door I've Ever Owned. — Had the car since new (07). Never left me down, looks great in black and overall performance is great. I've seen more than 900 km's per tank and it's always a blast driving on the open road. Resale value is pretty bad, but that's the case with most of GM's sedans.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's looks awesome in black with tinted windows

Cons: stiff ride, hard back seats.

Glad That The G8 Replaced It, But Not Surpised To See That The Pontiac Brand Has Died. —

Pros: Pretty fast car. Nice V8 sound from the quad exhaust tips. Good sound system, but would've rather had the upgraded Bose sound system. Steering stays stiff even at highway speeds with none of that "floaty" or "numb" steering felt which plagues many of the luxury brands. FWD performs a lot better than I thought; you can easily mistake this car for one with RWD. Standard remote start was amazing for the winter. Acceleration from a stop is pretty good as well. Gas mileage is decent for a car of this size, but I guess you pay at the pump as a compromise for the more powerful engine. Oh well. Cons: The interior has a lot of "empty" space; the same interior used in the first-generation Cadillac CTS is the same used here. The A-pillars are so thick; you have to really stretch your head out to peer around corners before making turns. Would've definitely like to have seen more aluminum trim inside the car. Pontiac was supposed to be the sport brand of GM anyways. Wind-noise dampening could have been a lot better. The red LEDs that illuminate inside the car could have been avoided as well as I find they really interfere with nighttime driving. Overall, this car really surprised me. It's a lot nicer than I had made it out to be, and a lot more powerful than I had expected. Hopefully the many downfalls of this car have been addressed with the G8 replacement for the Grand Prix. Too bad that GM let go of Pontiac; they weren't a strong enough brand to survive by themselves anyway.

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

Pros: Sick first car to have.

Cons: Too many on the road.

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

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
