Pontiac Grand Prix GT: Take another look
By DMV on
Vehicle2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewLooking forward to the release of Buick's replacement for the Regal, I kept looking at the Grand Prix. After driving both the LaCrosse CXL and the Grand Prix GT, the choice was easy. The GP-GT is more to my personal liking due to its crisp handling (for a midsize vehicle, it is great), and the responsiveness in acceleration, even though the LaCrosse & GP are built on the same platform and use the same powertrain. The GP is simply more sporty than its cousin from Buick. On a rercent trip, I experienced 31 MPG at highway speeds. The comfortable leather interior that kept away fatigue on a 5- hour drive: very nice! The Monsoon system would be worth the extra money
Best FeaturesRemote starter option: great for cold- weather warm-ups: automatically sets heat/defrost mode if below 40 degrees! Comfy leather seats - nicely contoured. Engine is quick & responsive; crisp, tight handling. Styling well done. Good features/value for the money. Huge trunk!
Worst FeaturesCould have done a little more with extra touches to the dash. Arrangement is good, but needs more "looks/design." Would have been nice to have a rear seat fold down center armrest/console/storage area.
