2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


As far as this thing compared to a European sedan, that's like comparing a Jackhammer to a golf club. It does go - but, pretty much where ever the surplus of traction happens to be - hang on tight! or you might kiss the guard rail. Amenities are good but overkill - "Stealth Mode" is a bit sophomoric, as are the useless fixed tap shifters in a dated 4 speed slush box. (they work fine as a two speed stoplight racer). Brakes are more aesthetic than athletic - and where is the Spare tire? a can of goo? Interior quality typical GM with loose door panels(one fell off in parking lot after opening drivers door!), cheap plastic buttons and drooping headliner. Not too reassuring in a new car

Best Features

Get up and go (when pointed straight) - heated seats - finger tip controls Last year of this dinosaur model. You'd think after 4+ years they could get it right.

Worst Features

Refine the drive line (G-8 is the right move), address quality not quantity issues - I can do without the redundant controls and electrical gimmicks. Ridiculous tire set-up (can not rotate - fronts larger than rears) Move on to a more modern approach.
