Pros: The Agressive Look and Performance.
Cons: RadioI have owned my Grand Prix 4 yrs and I Love it....the performance from the 3.8 V6 is more than enough for any type of driving ( highway or City) ...No major Problems a small electric window motor malfunction , but outside of that I am happy with my Pontiac .
Silver 2006 Ponitac Grand Prix GT
Pros: The remote control startup feature is my favorite.
Cons: The spacing on the back seatNice, black leather interior 06 Ponitac Grand Prix GT, with remote control start, 17'' premium alloy wheels, shiny silver exterior, cd player, heated front seats-both driver and passenger, two front cup holders, two rear cup holders
Cons: The quality of the plastic for the dash.
Advice: SEE REMARKS INRight after my purchased my 2006 GP I drove about 75 miles to get back home. I enjoyed it. Most of the drive was Interstate and highway. This is my second base GP, the other was a 2000 that I leased. This second purchased was from a car rental company. A No haggle price of $13,900. The one that I leased was $308.00 a month payment for 3 years. Getting your GP this way gives you lots of bang for your buck. And gives my 'Overall Rating' extra points.
Pros: I have the wide track so it handles around corners and a very smooth ride
Cons: backseat lacks comfort
Advice: back seat might be a tighter fit if you have teenagersI just purchased a 2004 and Love the Car!! It handles like a charm. I love the fact that its sporty and drives like a sports car but yet its a good car with having small kids.
Pros: Interior design and layout
Cons: No XM radio on the base model
Advice: Compare with an open mind and don't let the experts convince you prematurely.If buyers have an open mind and compare this car to others on the market I believe they will be impressed. It has good size, excellent mileage, decent base model power, and a very smooth ride. If you want value then the GP is just what you've been looking for. Pontiac has done a great job at keeping this car a bargain and I believe it competes very well in build quality and performance as any other passenger sedan on the market. Compare the GP against the Camry, Altima or Accord and you'll see that it's great transportation for thousands less and I mean thousands.
Cons: It's all good.
Advice: Just buy itWhy anyone would buy an import when you have a car like the Grand Prix to choose from baffles me. This car has peformance, fuel efficiency, comfort, and the Special Edition package looks hot. Just bought this car last week and at 44 years old, this is the 23rd car I have owned. The last dozen have been SUV's, but I've succomb to shopping for gas mileage. It is a pleasure to drive, even at 6 foot 4 inches. The most common comment I get from those who see the car is, 'wow, is that really a Pontiac?' I'm sending out a plea to all my fellow Americans....buy American. Don't send our money to the profit centers in Japan and Germany. We're building a competitive product state-side.
Pros: The feel and view from the driver's seat!
Cons: Interior hum with rear windows down.
Advice: Drive it! You'll love it!You will not find a Hotter 4 door Performance car! I have room for the kids and their stuff while getting my performance as well! Great combination!
