Bad brakes and bad Breaks from Pontiac!
By General Lee GXP on
2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Please know that I am a Loyal GM owner! Unfortunately, even with the high performance and fun driving factor, I will Never own another Pontiac and I have owned Numerous Pontiacs over the past 40 years. With fewer than 11K-miles, Pontiac had to replace the throttle-body which left me stranded on the freeway for 2 hours. With fewer than 13K-miles, I had to pay out of pocket for front brake pads And Disc Rotors; almost $700! I had to replace those Awful Bridgestone tires on front with Kumhos at the same time as the brake fix! I drove it from coast to coast right after the Disc replacement and it started scoring the front rotors Again! Neither the dealers involved not Pontiac was of any help!
Acceleration with acceptable fuel mileage.
Typical crappy stereo/nav system. Pontiacs I have owned have Always had the worst stereo even the upgrade ones! Too much cheap-looking plastic trim, too!
