Excellent Performance Sedan with great Highway MPG

I own one of these and they are very good car. Over 300 HP, handles great, and can get great gas mileage on the highway with how GM turns off four of the cylinders so its a four cylinder. Plus with Front Wheel Drive gets around great in the winter. A little know feature is that the passenger seat folds flat forwards, making it able for me to haul an 8 foot 2x4 with the trunk closed. The satellite radio is nice as well as the on-star. The engine is basically a 327 that's all aluminum and basically bullet proof and should last well past 200k.


the most reliable car I've ever owned

This is a great car I've owned a 2004 grand prix no probl mems what so ever the had a lot of power pretty good gas mileage I just recently bought a 08 grandprix gxp absolutely love it rides smooth v8 power and a absolute head turnwe very durable dependable cars and I love the style of them recommend to everyone thinking about buying one


Grand Prix

I purchased this vehicle to replace a 2006 Grand Prix with over 100,000 miles. Because GM is has discontinued this vehicle, I will drive this one until it dies.


Quality and safe car

This is the best car for the money on the market. GM made a serious mistake shuttering the Pontiac from the brand. I was an enthausiast with the GTO and sorry to see it become extinct.



I recently contacted cars.com to help me to find a replacement for my 15 almost 16 year old Grand Prix. It was the BEST car I ever owned so I was looking specifically for another Grand Prix and I found the best car ever!! I purchased a black 2008 Grand Prix that was a one owner vehicle with 31,000 actual miles on it! Also the car was owned by a nonsmoker and as an asthmatic, that was a big point. Also wanted seats that would fold down for larger cargo and this car has it all! It does say regular fuel is routine but I have always used the best in my cars and found it to be best for good performance and mileage. Well worth the extra money. This cars' gas gauge dropped so fast when I purchased it but after a few tanks of premium gas, it is as good as my 97' Grand Prix. I love it and would definitely use cars.com again should I need another car but I think it will be a long time before this car needs replacing so it would be to help a friend. This was an excellent source to plug into to find the best car ever like I did!


I own

This was my first time getting car from another state and from the internet. Eberyone turned out good.


Its a fun car

I must say that I have never been a Pontiac guy but this car is fun. It handles well has a lot of power and does not do to bad on fuel if you keep your foot out of it. The only think I have done to the entire car is tires oil changes and a supercharger. But its getting close to 55,000 miles and time to change it out.


Great car

I love this car. It looks good, drives and handles great. Runs good, very comfortable interior. Wish it got a little better fuel economy, but a great car.


Pontiac Enthusiast

The 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP that I own is by far the most bang for your buck, considering all the amenties the car has; A powerful 5.3 V-8 300 plus horsepower engine that I'm surprised by the gas mileage it get's 18 mpg city, 21 hwy, power seats, moonroof, AC, heated seats, XM satelite, leather seats, CD, remote starter, polished alloy wheels, premium stereo (monsoon), manual "tap shift"(when you want more of that powerful sports car feel) I'm telling you I can go on & on about this beautiful muscle car ! The steering is absolutely superb & on point. All I can tell you is drive it & you'll "Be sold"


Worst car on market

The 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP does not have much in common with its earlier model. This car appealled to me based on the side curtain air-bags and the fact it was a "Grand Prix". After reading a few reviews I was convinced it was the car I wanted. Now that I have owned it, I am simply looking for a way to get rid of it without taking such a big loss on its depreciated value. Below are the reasons I hate this car: the tires can't be rotated, and there is no spare tire (just and air compressor). The front tires are different size than the back tires. In the trunk Pontiac only supplies the car with an air-compressor. The compressor is no use if you have a blow-out. Sorry, Pontiac... my driving involves more than just driving around the block. What do you do if you are miles from home on the interstate?
