Holy COW, this car is great!

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Drove every other car in its class and this one came out on top by a HUGE margin. Super engine, quiet, awesome driving position and seats. Very good mpg and incredible brakes. Consumer Reports rated this car poorly. I think they must have hit their heads on a few washing machines. This car is FANTASTIC. Try it, then see if you agree with me. The GXP is an animal.

Best Grand Prix Ever

Review

As the 3rd time owner of a grand prix, I must say this is the best one ever. I had an 01 GT, and 03 GTP, and now an 06 GXP. They just keep getting better. This is just a great car all the way around. Acceleration is great, looks are nice too, and interior is much better this time around. Pontiac really has a winner with this one. Keep up the good work!

Review

Purchased GXP after much research. It is AWESOME - just as the other GXP owners say it is! It has nice styling cues borrowed from classic Pontiacs of the past (turned-aluminum style dash, fender vents from 2nd generation TA's), but is not a rehashed "retro" car. I believe this FINALLY is the car Pontiac had in mind when they presented the Grand Am in 1973: a sporty sedan with performance that surpasses imports costing many $$ more. Handling is superb; build and paint are outstanding; interior look and feel are nice, especially compared to GP's of a few years ago. Cabin is ultra-quiet, until you hit that gas pedal! This car is the proverbial "iron fist in a velvet glove"! Love it!

4 Door Corvette

If you want a truly quick 4 door car with a nice size trunk and you know that rear wheel drive just doesn't cut it in the snow belt then the GXP may be the car you are looking for. Blazing fast (Car & Driver says 14.3 seconds in the quarter) with very good handling for a large front wheel driver. Yes, I know rear wheel drive is better for 10/10s driving, but be honest how often do you drive 10/10s? On the other hand I drive in the snow every winter and front wheel drive wins hands down there. The Heads Up Display is a hoot and watching it display direction to your destination from the nav system is extremely cool. Build quality pretty good, nice even gaps, no squeaks or rattles.

As a grand Prix fan, I must say that I am impressed with the 2006 GXP. It not only beats its competitors on paper, it beats them on the pavement. Great handling, a true driving machine. This car makes the daily commute a little more pleasurable. One will not be disappointed with this choice, a true head turner.

It is a magical, beautiful car that I like very much. It is very very pretty and it flies like the wind. It handles very well on all types of roads.

Third Times the Charm!

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

As this Ameican's love affair with SUVs wanes, it was a pleasant suprise to test drive a "real car". After having owned (okay leased) one of the first 200 supercharged GTP's off the assembly line for the 1997 model year and later trading that for a limited edition "Daytona 500" GTP the new GXP comes out way on top. It is a shame I had to stumble accross it while the wife was test driving the new Soltice. She also is impressed, with the looks, power and feel of our new Grand Prix. If she wasn't I'd be looking at convertible "garaging" the rest of the winter out. Pontiac states you may not be happy with the "beasts" snow manners, quite the contrary in the 3-4 inches we got caught in.

Wow. Awesome car.

Review

Much much better than I expected. Tried ALL midsize cars, both foreign and domestic and this was the clear winner. Fast, quiet, handles excellently at both high speed and low. Tracks very well. Excellent stability system and the brakes drag you to a stop faster than an aircraft carrier landing deck. If you have a bias against the Pontiac name, I suggest you try this car. My Saab-loving wife drove it once and decided that this was the best car going for the price -- 27,600$ with leather and airbags and a few other toys.

My wife and I love all of the features on this pontiac. I do not know of another Auto that is so packed with features. Fast, farily economical (18.6 MPG Average)and a-blast to drive. Very comfortable for four people. Onstar, XM Satellite Radio, great Transmission. Black Cherry Metalliac Paint is beautiful.
