2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I purchased this car with about 12,000 on it, as a former program car. The car right of the bat sold itself as far as performance and comfort went. I fell in love with the rumble of the exhaust..And punch the pedal and you can feel the pull. As for torque steer, we are talking about an big torgue high hp V-8 in a car...Not some little handa with 200 hp and no real torque, so of course you will have this at times. Just hold on and make sure you are aimed in a direction other than whats desired! Torque steer can also be found in any Cadillac fwd with the northstar!
The Power obviously sold the car. The exhaust rumble especially. The exterior is fine although the editor, whom probably didnt even drive the car thinks not! As for 0-60 time ...its under 6 seconds easy! Again the editor who reviewed this vehicle could have been at the bar and not in the car.
Better interior components. Can GM ever make a sports car with door panels that don't rattle or make tons of noise? The offset wheel and tire combo wasn't needed! And come on the stereos GM uses don't have to be used 15 years consecutively!
