by sixatbat1 on Nov 4, 2013 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.

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.

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 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.
