2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GT 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

This was the first car I purchased after graduating from grad school. The Grand Prix had everything I wanted and it was a great price. I am so happy I have it. I am constantly getting compliments on how nice the inside looks. People are always impressed with the "extras" my car has.


Best Features

Dual heat/airconditioning, sound system, sunroof, roomy interior


Worst Features

I don't like that you can see rust behind the rims. (It was like this when I bought it). The rims should have been made differently so that you could not see the parts that hold the tire on. Also, some of the paint is coming off of the buttons to change the radio

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

2 1/2 half years experience, 31500 miles. Replaced the battery this week, no other issues. Changed Bridgestones for Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S - 10,000 miles on the Goodyears, just do it. Upgrades - K&N Series 63 intake system, Magnaflow muffers (yeah they sound mean), upgraded floor mats and piano black dash trim kit. Adding LED taillights soon. White exterior/sand ultra lux leather interior. No Nav or optional paint. A+ build quality. Have some fun? Disconnect the battery overnight - drive the GXP hard the next day over several drive cycles. Becomes a REAL hot rod (I promise). Rare model - turns heads. Almost 20 mpg town w/27 highway. Wanna race?


Best Features

Rarity/great looks - FAST - did I say FAST? Superior fuel economy - use premium only. Heads up display, paddle shifter. Details to a very high standard - red brake calipers with those plated wheels - A+. Flip down the seats? Becomes a pickup truck (not really but you get the picture).


Worst Features

K&N Series 63 intake system. Magnaflow mufflers, dash kit, floor mats/truck mat. LED tail lights. Use Meguiars products only for exterior maintenance. Treat yourself to the mufflers - then use the remote start and listen to your GXP "talk" to you as you walk up. Make your friends jealous.

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I got a lease and I just recently turned it in and got a new lease on a Pontiac G8. And man, everything the GP does right, the G8 does so much better and all the flaws from the GP vanish. But this is for the GP, though. The Grand Prix is a great car just to push the the limits. But when it comes down to business, it did terribly. I bumped my head in the back, causing the sunroof to get dislodged. I had a headache and a car repair bill. I was so mad. Also annoyances include archaic stereo system that looks like my old 1998 Grand Am. It's ugly inside and out. I was not satisfied at all.


Best Features

Neat information panel, good acceleration, good value, trunk space


Worst Features

Terrible build quality, worst back seats in the world, the front aren't so good either, 1990s stereo, information center is distracting, terrible resale value

Review

Base model with leather and heated seats. Great car no problems at all. Was getting around 22-25 mpg mostly highway and doing 70-80.


Best Features

Red dash lights, the way the controls were set up, easy to reach


Worst Features

move location of trunk release, easy for someone (unwanted) to reach in your car and pop the trunk
