Pros: NICE SEATS GOOD CONTROLS.
Cons: BACK SEAT COULD BE MORE SOFTER.
Advice: TEST DRIVE THE CAR YOU WILL LOVE IT.THIS CAR IS GREAT.I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT.IT DRIVES AND FEELS SUPER. IT IS VERY QUICK I GOT THE COMP G GTP LOADED. FOR THE MONEY YOU CAN NOT BEAT THIS CAR. WHEN I TOOK IT FOR A TEST DRIVE I WAS LIKE I WILL TAKE IT. SOLD
Pros: wide track driving
Cons: size of ashtray for smokers only
Advice: test drive it and you'll love itI test drove this vehicle and it drives smoothly and rides smoothly and consequently I bought one. Looks are important to me, but the way a car drives and handles is much more important. I had test drove other vehicles before this, but liked it best. The test drive was done with our family of 5 and we were all comfortable and have recently taken it on a vacation and everybody was comfortable for the 800 mile each way trip. In driving it you have to watch your speed or you will be cruising at excessive speeds without even knowing it.
Pros: Interior and performance
Cons: GT2 spoiler is small
Advice: GT2 is perfect for the younger/non-racer driverI test drove the GT2 model. I recommend the GT2 if your like me and trying not to get pulled over for speeding and to avoid higher insurance rates. It still has POWER and the take off speed is great. I love the new look, but I have notice that some die hard GP fanboys don't like it the new look. GT2 cost less then the GTP so use that extra cash for a sunroof and chromes. Peace
Pros: Interior design
Cons: Back seat comfort
Advice: Compare performance value to other import sedansThe GTP with the competition group package provides loads of power with great handling at a great value compared to similar sport sedans. The styling inside and out is a major advance from previous models. It also has practical features including a spacious trunk and fold down seats. This car is a lot of fun. I keep looking for excuses to take it out.
Cons: NO FOLDING MIRRORS, NEED MORE POWER OUTLETS AND NAVIGATION THAT TALKS TO YOU.
Advice: ONLY GET THE GRAND PRIX GTP WITH COMP PKGTHIS CAR FOR THE PRICE IS THE BEST FOR ANYONES BUCK. HANDLING, PERFORMANCE ETC IS EXCELLANT. COMP G PACKAGE IS OUTSTANDING AND RIDE IS NOT HARSH LIKE SOME REPORTS INDICATE
Cons: The back seat
Advice: Test drive the car over different types of roadsI test drove the GTP first. It was very quiet and little road noise from the tires. It drove very nice, not as smooth as my Passat, but it's a different car. I next test drove a GT2. It had more road noise from the tires, and I just didn't feel the ride was as good as the GTP. Also, didn't care for the cloth seats. I got the GTP and have had it for about a month, and love every moment of the drive to and from work. Haven't seen to many on the road. Get a lot of looks.
Pros: The power!
Cons: Curtain air bags are not available yet as of 5/28/03
Advice: Get it fully loaded,it's a bargin!I have test drove this car 3 times, each time It was the GTP with the Competion package. This car handles very well on the curves, it hugs the road like the magnets on my refrigerator! The tap shift is a blast, I love the control of a manual, but at times prefer an automatic. This car gives you both! The heads up display also prompts you to shift before the red line. I had the car going 92mph up a steep hill in 3rd gear! Needless to say I was impressed! So much for the 500 mile break in period.
