Review of the 2004 Pontiac GTO

  • It's got the power and the performance to wear the GTO name, but uninspired styling and an expensive price make the 2004 Pontiac GTO less likely to become a cult hit like its predecessor.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V8, rear-wheel drive, predictable handling from fully independent suspension, loaded with standard features.

  • Cons

    Forgettable styling, numerous standard features make it an expensive proposition.

  • What's New for 2004

    The 2004 GTO is an all-new rear-wheel-drive performance car from Pontiac. Although it is new to the U.S. market, it is based on a car sold by GM's Australian subsidiary, Holden, under the Monaro nameplate.

Garbage

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac GTO 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought used with 65,000 miles. 6 speed manual. It was a great performer and very fun to drive, but had a plethora of problems. After I got rid of my Ford Ranger 4x4 (daily driver) this became my daily. Whenever I would accelerate and bring the car to about 4300 rpm, all electronics would cut off and the headlights would get brighter, sometimes causing the bulbs to blow. Had an airbag light go on for no reason and it seemed to fix itself. Rode like crap, handling was mediocre, and build quality was less than spectacular. But it sure sounded good. I blew mustangs away all the time. It can also lay down rubber like nobody's business too. And fuel milage was surprisingly good. Almost 30 MPG hwy.

Bought used with 7,000 miles

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac GTO 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I bought the car used in August of 2012 with 7,000 miles. It was the best bang (horsepower) for the buck I found while car shopping. I use the car as my daily driver. Plenty of power for everyday driving. Passing people is a breeze. No mechanical problems to date.

2004 bought used

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac GTO 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased a one owner clean carfax GTO in December, 2012. The car developed some strange problems including the rocker panels filling with water (removing drain plugs solved the problem), which caused the interior floor to flood after it rained. The horn also went off randomly by itself and the air bag fault alarm was triggered by the airbag sensor located under the passenger seat. I had all of the aforementioned issues resolved and the car has been great since.




The best car i'll ever

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac GTO 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I've only owned my 04 GTO for a little over a week now, but have loved them ever since they re-released them. In this short time, I've come to the solemn reality that this is the best car I'll ever own! Everything about the way the car drives, handles, accelerates, brakes, was designed to perfection. Everyday I make a boring drive to a boring job, but I'm smiling ear-to-ear both to and from! My GTO is black, with black windows and black rims- very sleek. Anytime I'm just cruising around, I constantly see people turning their heads to watch me drive by and listen to the wonderful low rumble. I haven't pinpointed it yet- but there is just something about this car that is just menacing.




Car of my dreams

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac GTO 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I am the original owner of my GTO and it fits me perfectly, It should have had two hood scoops, but it actually keeps me "under the radar". Great to drive, extremely reliable. They'll have to pry it out of dead hands. Best car I have ever owned. If i get a new car, I will still have my GTO.




Look twice...

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac GTO 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 4A)

I've owned and driven a truck for eight years. After finally getting a chance to get my long awaited sports car, I bought the Pontiac GTO. My 2004 model drives and feels like a European business coupe, but the pedal feels like good ol' American muscle. The new GTO is a unassuming beast, only recognized when you hear it roar.

Pontiac is on the right track with going retro (but it's not as if it's a new idea either). However, the 2004 GTO (an import rebadged for the American market) is definitely NOT what they should have ...

So I'm closing in on buying a 2005 or 2006 Pontiac GTO, and I already know that it's a blast to drive. But then I happened to stumble onto a small forum on carsurvey.com where there seemed to be more...
