Biggest bang for the buck

My 05 GTO has been completely trouble free since purchased new in January 2005. True muscle car performance with Caddy comfort. It is a Corvette with a back seat. Low production numbers makes the chance of seeing one on the road very rare. If you can find one, get it. It's closest competition in price is the Mustang but the GTO is twice as nice as the out dated styling and cheap looking interior offered by the Mustang .

Factory ROCKET

This car is a full IN YOUR FACE hot rod, Both the LS1 and LS2 make big HP numbers right out of the box, enough power to take on ANYONE on the street, It responds very well to Mods, either minor on major. I have done a CAM, headers, exhaust, Cold Air Intake, Typhoon intake Manifold and a few others, Car now has over 500 RWHP and still gets great gas mileage, very civilized in normal driving, but get hard on the gas and it hits like Mike Tyson in his prime.. If you can find one, BUY it. There is nothing out there anywhere from 25 to 45 thousand dollars that can match it's Raw power and brute strength..Even in stock form, this car will distroy Mustangs, Chargers, Magnums. ALL OF THEM

Love it.

very happy with it. If your not a car enthusiast steer clear. Its sort of a specialty car. Needs some suspension work and it only has 39k. But I love it so much I don't care. Paid 16k for it so it was a steal. I would not recommend this car for a daily driver due to the city milage and suspension issues. It eats tires like crazy. But that's also caused by a heavy right foot.

The 2005+ GTO is one of the best bang for the buck performance machines you can buy in the used market, it has fantastic power, good handling, and cruises more like a bmw/mercedes than a muscle car. Has plenty of power at any rpm and still gets up to 30mpg with the 6-speed, there is simply no comparison. The only thing wrong with the car is the exterior styling is slightly bland, but that can be remedied with a good set of wheels. Otherwise this is an untouchable muscle/sports car at a great price in the used market!

I purchased a 04' GTO in 04' and it was the best decision I ever made for purchasing a new muscle car. You cant beat this car for the cost. Out of the box it has HP and handling. With mods its almost unbeatable in its class.

Most bang for your buck

Best car you can get for the money. Ultra fast,rwd,6-sp,6.0litre. If you are considering a Mustang, take a look at the Goat. No comparision. Bought mine used with 14000 miles for $23500. Some guy I know bought a 2006 stang convert. for $34000! Rip off. Stangs stink, goats are where it's at!

This car is rediculously fast. Though it weighs a plenty you wouldn't know it when you step on the throttle. It takes off and keeps going rediculously. It looks beautiful, maybe not what you'd think a GTO should, but still very nice. All the ladies think it is super sexy (Very nice). Mine is a red 6-speed. Have had a few problems (corroded wiring harness, blower control head) but nothing huge. I would recomend this car to ANYONE. Roomy, fast, sexy, and it eats up Mustangs and Chargers all day.

The '05 GTO I purchased is awesome! You can't touch it's performance for the price. The interior is something special. The seats are the most comfortable butt holders on the planet. If anyone out there is contemplating a GTO or Mustang, please go and test drive both cars with an open mind and there is no doubt that you'll be leaving the Pontiac dealership with a much bigger smile than when you leave the Ford dealership. I LOVE MY GTO!!!!!!!!!!

If you drive this car, you WILL buy one. Period. Powerful, Great Handling, and extremely will built. I get 26MPG highway, pretty impressive for 400HP 6.0L to deliver right out of the box! Best performance value for your dollar out there, hands down.
