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