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


So it's a low-life's dream car, so what? It has many assets: Much cheaper than the Volvo S60R I was also looking at, expressive appearance, dark cherry red exterior, cool rims, black leather interior, smooth ride, lots of cargo space, and rumbling 303hp V8 that runs on 4 cylinders for 28 mpg when cruising. And fun to drive, with great acceleration, control and braking. On downside, w/ my ht, driver's seat must be tilted back so I don't hit roof. Also, headrest is fixed parallel w/seat back, so it's too far back to be of use even if seat weren't tilted. Was car designed for Neanderthals, or should I drive with a racing helmet? I just slouch along, but somehow it works for me.

Best Features

Engine, handling, auto volume adjustment on stereo, remote staring feature, cargo space with fold-down seats, styling, and general versatility of car.

Worst Features

More headroom, legroom and adjustable headrests, firstly. On-Star should be an option, not a standard feature...who needs it? A spare tire should be available for the GXP, but isn't. More chrome on exhaust pipes. Better outward visibility. Free satillite radio Hybrid version, ethanol capable.
