Better than good, but not quite perfect

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


JD Power rated this vehicle as a good buy for reliability and I have to agree. I've had only two minor issues that were quickly corrected under warranty. Very comfortable around town and on the highway. Acceleration with the supercharged engine is excellent, as is braking. This is a large vehicle, so handling is good but not great. Fuel economy is in the low 20s with mostly highway driving; nothing close to the 28 mpg listed on the window sticker. Interior materials are a mix of good to cheap, with some areas nicely padded and textured; others are cheap in feel and durability. Red illumination of instrumentation is very appealing. All controls are easy to operate and very intuitive.

Best Features

Acceleration, cabin noise, HVAC controls and operation and seat comfort are all good. Very much like the dash layout and the red illumination of the instruments.

Worst Features

Too much cheap looking/feeling plastic on the interior. Steering feedback could be better.
