2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Bought my 2008 GXP used from a MA dealer who bought it at rental auction at 12k miles in June '08 (was a former Alamo rental). Excellent car, but burned through brakes like crazy. After replacing front brakes with rotors at about 18k, needed all brakes/rotors again at 25k. Some light arm twisting at the local dealer and GM rep agreed to a whole new set of rotors/pads front and back. Still holding at 37k though there's a lot of brake dust on the front wheels. Smoking, fast car. Even better than the 2000 Grand Prix GTP turbo I drove for 8 years prior. Too bad, it's the end of an era.

Best Features

Acceleration. Roomy interior. Signature red aircraft like instrument cluster at night. Heads up display. Decent mileage for V8. Good room in back seat. Price vs. comparable import.

Worst Features

Doesn't matter now. R.I.P. Grand Prix.
