2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I'm a young professional and I need a car to take clients out. I test drove a gently used maxima, a tsx,and an IS 250. Liked them all. I test drove the GP GXP and was pleasantly surprised. The V8 power,options,and handling of this car far outperformed the others above. And it was ~ $8,000 less. The car is not perfect. Fuel economy is not good and there are some cheap materials on the interior. There is torque steer due to front wheel drive but its not intolerable. But the performance and options you get for the value far outweighs the negatives.
A blast to drive. Engine sounds awesome. Great suspension. Great stereo system.
Poor fuel economy. Some cheap materials on the interior particularly in the dash. Moderate torque steer.
