Tips for best mpg by Ryan, Buffalo on 11/10/2010. Trim: 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: -Over 70k miles on it and only regular maintenance. No expensive repairs/problems whatsoever. -I see complaints about the highway mpg; Put some good tires on it (many are now rated for better mpg), keep up regular maintenance (use a good fully-synthetic oil, especially ones that last longer to make it more worth it, like amsoil). -I took a 2000 mile trip driving at speeds that would make mpg worse, and still got an average of 28 mpg!
Cons: -I could no longer read the radio display, which was mostly to see the time. Once replaced, the new stereo doesn't allow the internal clock to keep the date. This was obviously minor. -Newer GM vehicles are very apt to not pass inspection because of emissions problems. Not because emissions are poor, but the extremely integrated computer monitoring can have small problems, like a $200 valve that had to be replaced...
Overall review: Solid car; not a plastic toy. Plan to get another 70k out of it. Just take care of your cars and they'll last you forever!

I'm very pleased with my Grand Prix by Nick, Seattle on 08/21/2004. Trim: 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Full size sedan, large storage capacity, powerful at a reasonable price, nice clean lines.
Cons: The mentally challenged drivers looking to challenge the GTP.
Overall review: I was undecided between the Grand Prix and the Chrysler 300C. There were no 300C's available with the equipment I wanted. My decision was made for me. I'm very pleased with the GTP with the comp. package. No more Japanese cars for me.

Time to buy a Honda by Nadia on 04/27/2013. Trim: 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Stylish and sporty good size sedan for the price.
Cons: Terrible in any sort of bad weather rain or snow. Even with new brakes and tires it still slides.
Overall review: Overall a decent car for the price. However the gas mileage is poor and braking and handling is not impressive in bad weather.
