2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
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!
The whole car. A great driving experience.
Should have oil-pressure gauge and inside gas-door release. C'mon GM. Pontiac had those features on their less expensive cars in the late 80's/early 90's! Built in garage door opener would be nice. I gripe, but I'd still buy another of these when the time comes.
