"I bought my phantom black metallic GTO with red hot interior in January of '05, and am still completely in love with her. I think the understated exterior styling is part of the car's overall appeal. I can't count the number of times some poor unsuspecting soul has pulled up next to me at a red light thinking to get ahead in traffic, only to be left wondering what the heck kind of car just blew their doors off. The interior is stylish, comfortable, and user-friendly. Ive taken my car out on the highway for long trips several times, and love that the leather bucket seats just hug my body. The car has amazing handling. I always feel like I'm in total control. Besides the discovery of a few loose ground wires causing poltergeist-like symptoms in my dashboard instruments and stereo in the beginning, I haven't had any mechanical problems with my car. This is the first time in my life that I haven't been seduced enough by another car to even consider trading up. I still look for any excuse to take my GTO out for a spin. She is the sexiest, sportiest, and most fun car I have ever owned. My GTO and I are going to be together for a very long time."
Pros: "price, comfort, fun to drive, handles well"
Cons: "small trunk and cd player isnt the best"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I purchased my 2004 nearly 4 years ago, and could not be happier. This is one of the most comfortable vehicle ive ever been in. It is perfect for road trips, the gas mileage is pretty good on the highway. Fun car to drive, fast, and easy to work on as well. I havent had any issues with mine whatsoever. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a sports car."
"I bought my GTO brand new july 06. It's been a fun car to drive however almost 4yrs later and i've had several things go wrong. For anyone wanting to buy the GTO, it is a great car for the money. The best thing about the car obviously is the motor, can't beat it. However, my first year of owning the car it was leaking gas and had to have a gasket replaced under warranty. 3 years later into owning my car the paint peeled off my door handles. The worst so far to this car has been the leather seats and it is a common problem i found out. GM replaced my back leather seats even out of my warranty. The leather used in these cars is not your normal leather. It dries out easily. This happened to my rear seats and the leather and the stitching were unraveling. They had to completely take the leather off my back seats and put new on. Now i've noticed my gear shift is drying out too. This car has been garage kept and the windows were dark tinted not too long after i got the car. They told me this should not have happened considering i had taken care of it. If you plan on buying one, check the back top of the rear seats and the leather to make sure you won't be in for some unplanned replacement costs."
