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?
Bought this car on a whim. Went to test drive a Mustang. Hated It. Drove by this Dealer by accident, and test drove a Trail-Blazer. Then I HEARD this car pulling into the lot. From there I was in Ahhh. But to get behind the wheel of this Powerful V8, what a dream. This is my third Pontiac (others were Grand-Am GT's) and they have done something Right with this GXP. I put 32,000+ miles on it the 1st year I owned it. Its a great highway car. I love to take it out to the deserted stretches of straight rural roads, and let her loose.
i bought the car bran new in 06' the car was great but at 60k miles the transmission went out first time left me stranded 50 miles out of town, sents then ive had replaced the trasmission its gone out 3 more times up to now it has 210,000 miles not to mention i had the motor rebuilt 2 times as well. on that note the car is only worth $4,500 and i have well more money in repair costs than its worth now but when its not breaking down i really love the car
This is one of the most rounded cars I've owned. I have had 5 Corvettes, ranging from c4's - c6's. And far the money, you get an awesome vehicle! I am very impressed by the gas mileage I achieve, I am averaging 27.5! Now keep in mind, this is a V8! Very responsive! Very quick for a midsize sedan. I love the looks and stares I get from others that wonder what im driving. Most people have not even heard of a GXP!
