"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."
"Never thought I'd own a muscle car, but when GM offered its employee pricing, I couldn't resist. Best purchase of anything I've ever made. Got it with the 6 speed out the door for $30K - to buy anything else new that can match the Goat's performance, you'd have to spend twice that. The ride, the handling, the cornering, the steering - every aspect of its performance is first rate. And that LS2 6 litre should win awards for acceleration and tractability; it is absolutely awesome. And it makes the sweetest V8 burble out of the dual exhausts. Sitting at a red light, the idle is quiet, smooth and virtually undetected - except just for the slight occasional rock and sway that confirms there's a radical cam under the hood - a mild version of the muscle cars of the early '70s. You have to hand it to the Aussies, Holden builds a world class product. The car is tight and rock solid - no rattles or vibrations. It rides far better than most sedans, but corners flat and has great steering feel. Only complaint - the tranny software compels a mandatory first to fourth gear shift under certain loads at pre-specified rev levels - this feature (for fuel economy purproses) is pure, unmitigated insanity. I can't believe GM puts that same tranny in a 'Vette. Overall the Tremec tranny is not up to the rest of the car; notchy, long throws detract from the otherwise perfect driving experience. And the back seat is perfectly roomy and comfortable - you can't ever say that about a Mustang. And yes, the Goat is BLAZING FAST."
