Pros: Horse power under the pedal!!!
Cons: Looks like a grocery getter!!
Advice: Get the 6-speedThis car brought back memories of my teens with the 60's muscle cars. Test drove it for few hours from the car dealer. Outstanding performance and handling. Shifts and drives like a dream.
Cons: Access to the back seats
Advice: Don't! if you expect Power without frequent trips to the gas pump.I love this car!it's quick, it's muscle and then some,it corners far faster than any car that I have owned, no tilting, just 'G'force,it has traction galore,and it looks like, at first glance 'Clark Kent', but just a touch of the accelerator pedal and you are driving the true King of the Road,all controls are at your finger tips,the gage colors change between day and night,wide performance tires...You can use low grade fuel,however,your performance will be according the grade you use.High test is suggested
Pros: The entire inside of the vehicle
Cons: Not having 18 in. wheels
Advice: You need to drive this vehicleI bought my GTO in September 04 and it is one of the best purchases I have made to date. All the numbers out the window, this vehicle is clean, solid and a great value for the money. I would like to say that getting behind the wheel and experiencing what Pontiac has to offer with this beauty is just the begining of what could be a wonderful relationship. Pontiac has done the legecy justice with the rebirth of the GTO, driving excitment would be an understatement! Drive this vehicle and enjoy what life truely has to offer.
Pros: Power and exhaust sound
Cons: Premium Unleaded Fuel
Advice: Forget the automatic. Performance vehicles operate the best with a stick shift.Awesome! I'm an Aussie who moved to the US about 2 years ago. I had the CV8 Gen III Holden Monaro in Sydney, but, sadly, sold it upon my move to the US. As soon as I heard the vehicle was available here, I was excited! I purchased mine (6-speed Yellow Jacket) in early August and couldn't be happier. Interior is stylish, ergonomic, classy and clean. Exteriror is a head turner (don't believe the BS reviews), elegant flowing lines, stylish and has that 'flow' to the panels. The ultimate 'sleeper.' Ride comfort and quality is exactly what you would expect from a performance vehicle....it does it's job to perfection. Perfomance is overwhelming! Power is amples for every situation. Overtaking, kick-back, cruising....you name it, this vehicle performs it with next to no effort. Exhaust sound is sweet and earth shattering under load. It has a very pleasing 'throaty' sound when this animal opens up. Music to my ears! This car is NOT a purchase. It's an investment!
Cons: could have come in my strikeing colours
Advice: not much,but its sure worth a real lookthis car is an all round good performer,,,and I was surprized to find out the shape of this car has come from Australia,,,,well done guys,,,if this is the first from down there, cant wait to see whats comeing next
Pros: Power...Awesome Smooth Power
Cons: Seat motor too slow
Advice: Buy it now, or better yet, buy it when the LS2 comes in (if so)I love this car! I believe the power and torque specifically really make this car. It seems to be very comfortable and luxurious compared to most of the vehicles I have drove. It's paint and looks are real head-turners! (Don't listen to the BS...people chase me down all the time to see the car).
Cons: Apperance. Does not look like a sports car !!!!!! Too much like a Gran Am.
Advice: Spend some more and get a Vette.Grate speed and power!!!
