2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I was quite happy with my 2000 Gran Prix GT until my friend took me for a drive in his new GP GXP! I was blown away. Had been seriously looking at the new Mustang, but no more. Acceleration, high speed driving in all conditions, rain snow,(with winter performance Goodyears Eagle Ultragrip GW3 V rated) even city driving in stop and go traffic, the finesse this car has in stopping, lane changing, accelerating makes even the trip to work in heavy traffic almost enjoyable.
Rock solid handling. Braking, acceleration. In fact,all of it!
The sunroof cuts into the head room too much. Heated mirrors, manually controlled 4 cyl mode, would make for much better hwy mileage, a spare tire, tap shifter on the gearshift.
