2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


My GT has been trouble free. Original tires wore quicker than I thought they should, but Goodyears I bought holding up good. I've been very pleased with the gas mileage for this size of car. 17-31 MPG. Alot of remote start in Chicago winter or Phoenix summer and mileage obviously drops. 65 MPH on interstate and 30 MPG. 85-90 MPH on interstate and 25-26 MPG. Over 68500 miles and still on original brakes. I'll need them soon, can feel rotors have a shimmy during hard braking. Like the oil management system, saves oil, have gone 9000 miles on a couple of changes. This is a great highway vehicle. Quiet and quick when it's needed. Good in snow when lived in Chicago. Great AC now in Phoenix.

Best Features

MP3 CD player. heated leather seats. Driver information system helped when I picked up a nail. Warning tire going low so I had time to get to right lane before needing to head to shoulder. Electric Sun Roof with interior shade. Fold down seats for trunk pass through. 90 degree open rear doors.

Worst Features

The car needs more headroom for taller passengers. Over 5' 10" going to be cramped. This and previous Pontiac original tires had quick tread wear out. Too much cheap looking plastic in interior.
