2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
It's easy to be drawn in by the sexy stance, the leather, moonroof and the 17 in. wheels that the GT has to offer. However, once you get past the vroom vroom shiny red race car surface stuff, the disgraceful fuel economy alone is enough to make you list it for sale after a month. Excessive road noise is even worse with the sunroof shade open. The interior especially the headliner feels cheap, even tacky after the new car smell wears off. The worse paint I've ever seen - there seems to be no topcoat or clearcoat as there are hundreds of chips down to the metal after 22k miles. Not worth the ins. and payment. I'm going to get a Honda or Toyota which might seem boring but definitely smarter.
Supercharger. Accelerates like a Mercedes or BMW. There's nothing like it on the open road. Flash. Looks like I spent 30K Can beat anything on the freeway!
Gets WORSE MPG than my '98 Suburban Cheap, plastic flimsy interior feel. Monsoon stereo has too much bass, even when I set bass to -3. I'm not a fan of thumpin' tunes. Backseat is worthless for even petite passengers. Again, never seen such pitiful MPG from an American sdn. 20 hwy is generous.
