2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My wife, average height always complained about blind spots. We bought the car new in 2005 and got 10 good years out of it, but I can never say it was a comfortable ride, esp as WE got older. It became painful on my back to sit in on long trips, and we both had some difficulty climbing out of it as compared to an SUV

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car was my first car, and I drove it with pride until the day that it saved the life of myself and two other passengers. Rounding a sharp corner at night, I found myself approaching a fallen tree across the road. I swerved to avoid the tree and ended up on the embankment hitting another tree at about 45 MPH. Airbags deployed, but nobody was hurt. The car was extremely safe, and was an absolute blast to drive, with amazing handling and performance for a sedan. I am definitely looking into buying another Grand Prix, perhaps this time with a supercharger!


Best Features

Handling, performance from the base V6, interior comfort


Worst Features

Plastic interior does not last long

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have a 2005 gp that now has 361000 miles that has given me many years of use.
If you take care of the 3800 V6 you will get your money back in return.


Best Features

Just a awesome car.


Worst Features

need a lil more hp.

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this car to replace a car that was on its last leg. After reading reviews from a website like this I decided to purchase one. It was a well made decision. This car is very reliable. I lived 2 miles from work and found out the hard way how bad the car was on gas, especially with local driving. However on the highway I was able to get about 25 mpg. Things I noticed before trading it in was it began to burn oil. The indicator advised me of low oil well before the 3000 mile recommended oil change and I used synthetic blend. Overall. It was a great car.


Best Features

LOVED the remote starter and the onstar feature as well as the 200hp motor (base). Stereo system was nice and loud.


Worst Features

Fuel economy. But no need to complain when Pontiac is no longer in production. However the G8 was bought back as the Chevy SS. Im sure fuel economy was rectified

Review

Nice big car, lots of room, loads of power from the 3.8 v6. Love the exhaust growl.
I always compare this car to my 04 Honda Accord 4cyl.
This car has way more power and gets the same fuel mileage.
On the other hand it doesn't handle as well and the fit and finish are not nearly as good.
I love
the interior, especially at night.
Reliability is ok. Burns a bit of oil.
At 100000miles, its starting to squeak and rattle, which my Honda is not.
Overall a pretty good car.


Best Features

Power and performance


Worst Features

Fit and finish, reliability
