Pros: "Fun to Drive. Fast. Tire Smoke!"

Cons: "Expensive to maintain/upgrade"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"As far as reliability goes, these cars have a few well known issues that are common among them and parts are not cheap. I would not recommend this as a daily driver car. However, it is a very fun car to drive and it is fast. The the horsepower per dollar value of this car is definitely among the best, if not the best, of any other car."

"Currently own a 2006. Previously owned a 2004. These cars are fun to drive and have lots of power. The interior is great. If you take good care of them, these cars will treat you well. The LS engines are amazing."

Pros: "Fun! Fun! and . . . . Fun! (And well-built.)"

Cons: "MPG ==15. Horrid in snow (unless 4 snow tires.)"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Car is actually a Holden (Australian brand) coupe with a Corvette engine (LS1) and transmission (6-sp man). Very powerful (350hp), handles very well (except in snow!), tons of fun to drive. Wears out rear tires fast! Everyone wants to race you off of lights. Resist the urge. Tickets get expensive. Fit and finish - better than any American car I've ever driven. After 100k miles, no rattles, no worn-out upholstery, most every gadget and function still works like new. Colors in interior unfaded. Ext paint in great shape. Motor still sounds like new - no ticks, knocks, etc. Most GTO's ended up in the hands of heavy modifiers - i.e., fancy exhausts, optimized air intakes, racing suspensions. If you can find one that was NOT modified, then it probably wasn't raced, and will last forever."

Cons: "Lacking in comfort/convenience."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Lots of fun in a true sleeper of a car. What Pontiac/GM lacked in style and design they made up for with horsepower and torque. This car wasn't made for a winding, twisting autocross either (although it's no slouch compared to probably 90% of all other production models), but from stoplight to stoplight or out on the open road...just try and keep ahead of it. I've owned two Corvettes, a BMW M3 and a few vintage muscle cars. Not one of them could even come close to keeping up with my 2006 GTO. I guess that is why I own two of them now. Not for everyone, but I sure love mine!"
