My 2004 Barbados Blue GTO is quoted by Newagegto.com and LS!GTO.com as being THE RAREST of THE RARE. Very , Very low production ( only 302 Barbados Blue auto-transmission out of 15,756 manufactured in 2004) . The color was stopped at the end of 2004. My GTO has only 14,500 miles ,kept in excellant condition. You Quoted my GTO as having a value of $10,670 Trade-in value, $12,719 Dealer Value,and $11,411 as Private Party Value. I have serched the internet for other GTO's to compare value . There are GTO's selling for $12,999.00 with 40,000 or more miles . Most of the GTO's have 75,000 to 125,000 miles and they are being sold for more than the quote you gave me for my GTO BARBODOS BLUE w/ 14,500 miles and is quoted as being " The RAREST of THE RARE". I only found one other GTO that had fewer miles ( 8,750 miles and they were asking $30,000 ). I think my GTO Might Just Be The RAREST in the country, Because of the low miles and the color being the RAREST COLOR . YET you are saying it is only valued Between $10,670.00 and $12,719.00. This doesn't make sence ! ! ! ! !

This car is great, and for the price unbeatable. The ls1 and tremac 6 speed combo is a great combination. Wonderful power and sounds mean when you put the pedal down. But, it also has the ability to be quite when leaving the neighborhood at 6 am. This is not a car for the Eco conscious or one looking for the cheapest route from point A to B. This is a car where you will enjoy the commute. Right now, I am measuring the car in smiles per gallon, and believe me, that number is quite large.

I really hope this hits the top if the list lol. Car is awesome I love it, but if you don't know anything about cars these 2 things will save you a lot of grief and time pull the glove box in the top right hand corner under the dash is the bcm wiring harness put a wire protecter on it. it rubs on the glove box support beam causes a bunch of issues if you don't fix it. Secondly pull the driver side engine cover replace the fuel line with a steal braided one or else fire will probably occur besides those 2 issues 138xxx miles and she's still running strong with a stage 2 clutch header back exhaust stage 2 brakes and poly eurothane bushings gets ride of the body roll for most of your handling problems. Also the power steering line if not adjusted after about 100xxx miles will leak on your alternator but that's kinda just wear and tear

I purchased my 2004 gto in 2009 I can say to date I have had know real problems with my gto other than getting pulled over by the cops just because I'm in a car that can beet them standing still and I have gone threw a few sets of pro rated tires untell I learned to keep my foot out of it,witch is real hard to do I might add.I park my car in the winter usually,one year I had no choice I had to drive it and leave it to me it just so happened to have one of the worst winers in a decade in Montana and had to drive my gto in three feet of snow and ice I was stunned how well the gto did my gto has 89'000 and I plan on having it forever I have owned many vehicle in my life and a few sports cars but the gto takes the cake.best car I have ever owned.

Bought used with 65,000 miles. 6 speed manual. It was a great performer and very fun to drive, but had a plethora of problems. After I got rid of my Ford Ranger 4x4 (daily driver) this became my daily. Whenever I would accelerate and bring the car to about 4300 rpm, all electronics would cut off and the headlights would get brighter, sometimes causing the bulbs to blow. Had an airbag light go on for no reason and it seemed to fix itself. Rode like crap, handling was mediocre, and build quality was less than spectacular. But it sure sounded good. I blew mustangs away all the time. It can also lay down rubber like nobody's business too. And fuel milage was surprisingly good. Almost 30 MPG hwy.

I bought the car used in August of 2012 with 7,000 miles. It was the best bang (horsepower) for the buck I found while car shopping. I use the car as my daily driver. Plenty of power for everyday driving. Passing people is a breeze. No mechanical problems to date.

I purchased a one owner clean carfax GTO in December, 2012. The car developed some strange problems including the rocker panels filling with water (removing drain plugs solved the problem), which caused the interior floor to flood after it rained. The horn also went off randomly by itself and the air bag fault alarm was triggered by the airbag sensor located under the passenger seat. I had all of the aforementioned issues resolved and the car has been great since.

I've only owned my 04 GTO for a little over a week now, but have loved them ever since they re-released them. In this short time, I've come to the solemn reality that this is the best car I'll ever own! Everything about the way the car drives, handles, accelerates, brakes, was designed to perfection. Everyday I make a boring drive to a boring job, but I'm smiling ear-to-ear both to and from! My GTO is black, with black windows and black rims- very sleek. Anytime I'm just cruising around, I constantly see people turning their heads to watch me drive by and listen to the wonderful low rumble. I haven't pinpointed it yet- but there is just something about this car that is just menacing.

I am the original owner of my GTO and it fits me perfectly, It should have had two hood scoops, but it actually keeps me "under the radar". Great to drive, extremely reliable. They'll have to pry it out of dead hands. Best car I have ever owned. If i get a new car, I will still have my GTO.

I've owned and driven a truck for eight years. After finally getting a chance to get my long awaited sports car, I bought the Pontiac GTO. My 2004 model drives and feels like a European business coupe, but the pedal feels like good ol' American muscle. The new GTO is a unassuming beast, only recognized when you hear it roar.

The nose of this car is cheap plastic. It pulls off whenever the rear of the nose comes in contact with anything on the ground. The interior is also a very cheap plastic along with the siding under the car. Overall poor build quality. This car is not as fast as it should be with this kind of engine in it and the poor gas mileage it gets. It is heavier than most SUVs so power to weight ratio is terrible!

I have loved mine since I have purchased it. Wish it had the 05-06 Ram Air hood and dual exhaust but other than that I love it. I have replaced the box air filter with a K & N cold air intake. Removed the stock exhaust and replaced it with a Corsa exhaust and replaced the stock headers with a set of Edelbrock and love it. Are there cars out there faster? Sure, but there are not to many and a lot of those have some form of power adder. If you purchase one be prepared to have Mustangs, Charger's, and Challengers want to see what you got. You can show them or do what I do, let 'em go, because they are not even worth the gas.

I bought my GTO a few months ago and I love it. I have been a hardcore Camaro guy for some years now and I am happy with my change. It runs great and the interior layout is perfect for my taste. For the enthusiast who enjoys working on their own car the GTO has plenty of room under the hood to work. Great car!!!

If you have anywhere from 12 to 20k to spend on a very fun car to drive on weekends and have a blast. But as a daily driver, it drinks gas and SHOULD burn premium if you want the performance when you need it. 350 LS1 can easily achieve over 400 horses with minor mods. Nice low naturally rumble. You will need all new suspension by 15k miles - maybe earlier. Read up on it. Handles well for a legendary straight liner but it's heavy. Tires at come with are 245s with bland 17" wheels. This car has a dorky design that you get used to. Some people justify it as "stealth" or euro. Live with it. They don't make em anymore although I hear they will be reincarnated as a 2011 Caprice.

To put it simply, why drive anything else? That's the thought that goes through my mind when I drive. My GTO is fantastic. It is clearly the best car I have ever driven. Its scary fast (top speed and acceleration) and the exhaust noise, to die for. Thanks to our Aussie friends. Good work, great car. Although there is one thing that upsets me about my car; its the braking performance at high speed. It's like the pads are terrified of the wheel hub. Perhaps I need Brembos. And finally, my girlfriend hates the car. This is the final confirmation I needed.

The GTO is actually a hybrid in the sports car industry. The characteristics of American Muscle! The truth be told the European design becomes questionable with American tag on it. The GTO is much like Audi S4 or a BMW M3 as apposed to the Mustang and Corvettes. I further would like to add that I have had the privilege of running all the cars mentioned. For those who look for a performance daily driver this is a good reliable automobile. If you want to step it up a notch and have the coin. This car can produce 550hp to the rear wheels and handles it quite nicely with the traction control. In a nut shell this is a euro handling vehicle with American muscle. It is the best of both worlds.

Installed an aftermarket transmission and bolted on plenty of Holden parts from Australia. Get positive comments from passers by constantly. Have no idea why this car wasn't a huge success for GM.

Fuel mileage is about 20 on the hwy, could care less about trunk space or passenger comfort, good sound system, did i mention the seats, styling is fine for a guy my age. I plan on keeping this car a long time.

I returned from a deployment and I was looking for a car with 3 things speed space and style. SUVs was more what I was looking for concerning the last two and very very few cars where on the list, but once I hopped in the Butte it was curtains for everything else, space was the only knock but I cant think of any car that can get close to SUV in that department. But, as you can read, speed is all over the place.

Either you "get" the last generation GTO or you don't. Those who "get it" almost feel like they're in a club - there's that occasional eye contact from other GTO drivers that says "there's someone else who understands". The GTO is all about "stealth" - especially the 2004. Looks like any other car on the road (especially to police) while more capable than anything even remotely close to its price. I've wanted this car for 20+ years - I'm glad GM had the guts to build it. This is a BMW "6 series" for the masses.

This is my first GTO--the car was more than I could have hoped for. Pictures don't do this car justice. Its comfortable, fast, and looks good. This owner gives the 04 GTO two thumbs up. I am a large framed person, over 300 pounds and I fit in the car with no problems. Plenty of room for me and passengers. I would by another but I we get snow here in Ohio and sports cars don't do well in the snow. I have not had the chance to get this car on the track but I will the first opportunity I get!

I bought my 2004 gto 6spd with 28,000 mi. The car has been running great ever since I bought it. No problems at all and for one of my cars to have that last that long with no problems. That says a lot about the car, I like to drive the car the way that it was meant to be driven if you know what I mean. 175 mph stock and I was just shifting into 6th gear at 160 it was still pulling for more. Tires don't last the longest but you have to do a burnout here or their its a muscle car. Everyone underestimates the car until they go for a ride in it a true sleeper around town about 19 mpg on a recent trip up to Canada I was getting about 26 mpg doing 80 mph+. The 6 spd tranny really gets the job done.

Bought car used with around 29,000 miles. I have put almost 10,000 miles on it and have had only one problem--gas cap went bad (???). car runs great. It's a blast to drive. The interior is good too. The styling isn't great but it grows on you. Also gets pretty good gas mileage (around 20 city/hwy avg).

Forget about all of the naysayers that expected a retro looking car like the Mustang. This car fits the bill just fine. It is fast, handles decent, and is bigger on the inside than it looks. Trunk space is my only issue because the fuel tank occupies half of it, but mine isn't a daily driver so it isn't a big deal. The car rocks and is almost everything I could ask for in a new car purchase.

This car is arguably the most solid car that have driven, or even been in. It has an Audi grade interio, and has 1 important feature imports do not have: The legendary 350 chevy in the form of LS1. The amount of refinement in this entire car is almost appalling from a muscle car standpoint. I am 22, just got the car about 3 weeks ago ans simply love it. There is a strong possiblity that after I graduate college (in 1 year) I will by a 2006 also.

All GTO owners that I have talked to grows more pleased as time passes. Initially I was impressed with the muscle and speed. After a year of driving I began to love this car's European look! My car is black w/red upholstry, Calif.Chromed stock wheels, L&N air filter, best set of headers made, you can imagine the compliments that follow this classy and sassy road machine! When I purchased it I thought I might change it after 3 years,but it's the best car that I have owned. I plan to keep it. I have bought Pontiacs since the 60s, that includes Trans Ams Gran Prixs. All were good for their time, but none compared to my '04 GTO!

While some dislike the body style as "bland", I found it to be exactly what I wanted - no fake fender vents, no exaggerated body lines. Since the car was only built in high-performance versions, there are no "Barbie-Doll" GTO's out there like the Mustang. If you see a GTO, you know it's hot. You don't have to check for a medallion or emblem on the fender. And the "plain" appearance makes it less likely that anyone will be able to identify the car as they watch your taillights disappear over the horizon. :)

Took it on a 2 week trip out west in September, put 5400 miles on it in 14 days, and never got tired of being in the car. 15 hours the first day and 10 plus on other days, from 1000 feet up to 11,000 feet, car did not skip a beat and averaged 26.4 mpg for the trip, all at or above the speed limit, and in some moments very fast. I will never get rid of it!

The new GTO is a true modern muscle car. Yes, I remember driving the original GTO's, and my 2004 is as fast or faster than the best of the 60's. The difference is that it handles better than most sports cars and is quiet and relaxed on the highway. I've owned mostly BMW's, Porsches and other euro cars, and the build quality of this built down under GTO is as good as any of them. With a 160 mph top end, 14 seconds flat in the quarter, and real world economy of 18 to 24 mpg this is a great car.

I Love my GTO

I bought my GTO with 18,000 miles on it. Took it to the 1/4 mile track in Ennis, TX. Ran 14's stock. Should've been better, but I guess my reactions are a little slower now that I'm over 40. I've had it up to 145 mph, knowing there was plenty more, but almost missed my exit. Looking at getting an '06.

In, my opinion the 2004 Pontiac GTO is very underestimated. The Car exudes inpressive performance for the price and the interior is spot on. There is no other way to discribe it. Many people argue that its not a muscular as they wanted. My question to them is have they actualy driven one? Now i agree that it seems as thought it could have a faster 0-60 time or that the engine could have put out more, but and this is a big but if you could ever take one out on a track you would see where Pontiac was trying to go. It seems as though you and the car are comunicating with one antother. It was one of the best track cars for the money i have driven. It gets a big two thumbs up from me.

I bought this car as a 30th bday present to myself. Got it in silver, had only 800 miles on it for an awesome price! Wasn't too impressed with the looks until I drove it. Also looked at other cars in similar class but realized this car was in a class of it's own. Love that there aren't very many around town. I have only seen 5 others during all my travels in various states. I am the only one in town. Had it up to 156 at the last glance against an 06 GTO. The car has alot of power and a good driver is a great combination. Love this car.

My last American car was a 1969 Corvette with a 435 h.p. 427 c.i.d. engine which I bought new. Lots of fun, but everything broke. Since then it has been mostly BMWs, VW's, Porsche's etc.. GM made an offer though their GM credit card that I couldn't refuse, so I bought a 2004 GTO, 6-speed. This truely is a modern muscle car, but with no rattles and NO PROBLEMS! The car is quiet, but with just the right rumble of exhaust. It gets up and goes when you want, and excels on the open road with 22-24 mpg at 80 mph. Don't let the looks fool you, this car is better in every way than the 1964 tri-power GTO that I drove back in the good old days.

I took over a lease in october 2005. It was a great deal or I would not have considered it. The lackluster styling of the car is a real fooler. Once I took it out for a drive, I was hooked! I owned a 1964 GTO, 4 barrel with auto transmission in 1968 & 1969 with fond memories, but WOW what a difference. all I can say is if you don't drive a new GTO you have no idea what you are missing. The plain Jane styling is somewhat of a blessing since the cops don't seem to notice the car at all, so far so good, no tickets yet! I did have it up to 135 MPH & there was alot left to go, but that was fast enough for me.

Great car all around so far. Plenty of power with decent mileage. Six speed is a lot of fun; the only way to go. Haven't owned long enough to gauge reliabiltiy, but to date very good with 9000 miles. Stereo is good with fair equalizer features (would like to do more manual adjusting). Front seat motors are very slow so backseat entry is a pain. Trunk is small but don't really use it anyway. Front seats are excellent.

I had named this review the American M3, but that would not be entirely accurate. I purchased my GTO late in the 2004 model year when GM was offering great incentives. The GTO has been a joy to own. I now have just under 21,000 miles on it and I couldn't be happier. This car has plenty of power on tap, yet can achieve over 30 mpg on the hwy. (6- speed manual). Around town, driven with care, I average 21 mpg. The interior is among the finest GM offers with a clean design and rattle-free construction. The handling is decent for a car this size. The car offers a comfortable ride and feels solid, as it should with the weight this car packs. Overall a nice, clean powerful car.

Great car to own. Gear shift is not as smooth as the Vette or other sports cars, but is still good. Handles well on dry pavement, but gets loose easy. Not good in areas with snow. It is great quick and is truly a sleeper. Most people don't notice the car until they hear the rumble. This a great car for a mature adult. DO NOT BUY FOR ANYONE THAT IS NOT MATURE. Performance, as stated before, is unbelievable. This car rates well in its class, but don't think it is as fast as Vette or Viper. It can be modified to push 600 hp for $6000 at some custom shops. Thank you for your time.

This car has 1960's Muscle car performance with all the modern comforts. My last GTO was a 1970 and the 04 GTO puts it to shame in just about every way except for looks. The new GTO is reliable, fast, gets good milage (for a performance car) and is very comfortable. I drive this car all through the Michigan winter (traction control and all season tires make this possible with RWD). My zero down 24k 2yr lease is $300/month. A lot of car for the money.

This is one of the most mild natured cars we have owned. It is quiet and smooth riding with an almost luxurious interior. Very civil and predictable putting around town and in the parking lots. But when you head up the entrance ramp to the highway and push down on the throttle, the thrust is unbelieveable. No complaints about anything on the car. The stereo is adequate. The mileage has been between 20-21mpg consistently with the automatic. With 350HP that is pretty good, I think. A 117HP car would need to get 60mph to match its MPG/HP efficientcy.

I bought this car with 20 miles on it and have loved it ever since. Decent fuel mileage for the power. Comfortable and affordable, I paid under 23k for it, technically used but new. I didn't realize all the wheel hop everyones talking about. CAGS is annoying and there is slightly too much body roll, but what do you expect for the ride you get. Brakes could be improved as well as the sound system. Overall very easy car to drive and I'm sure glad I got the 6 speed. Love the styling, and I just laugh at the people who say it looks like a cavalier b/c they don't have any taste. Overall a great recommedation and car for the money.

My first time in the car, i drove it 900 miles to get it home. I averaged over 27 miles per gallon! The power is very addicting and that doesn't help with the rising fuel prices.

This car is awesome! Bought in Nov 2004, it just gets better all the time. It looks like a grownups car, drives (and sounds) like a teenagers car. Interior is roomy and extremely comfortable -- 2 day road trip with 4 adults was great (mildly annoying getting in and out of back seat). Best road trip car I've ever had -- ride is smooth and all the power you need. Took it through the mountains in Colorado and never felt so safe -- barely touched the brakes going down -- mostly downshifted. Getting on the highway is like taking off in a lear jet. Drive it once and you're hooked!

So I just came home with a Yellow 04 GTO and I am loving everything about this car. It has the power of an american muscle car but not the crappy quality of the majority of american cars today since it's built in Austrailia. It really does have the build quality like a european car but the raw power of an american bad boy car! Yes some may say the styling is bland but I personally get looks and people trying to talk to me about the car all the time. My girlfriend gets annoyed when we pull up to a light and another guy is trying to yell at us through the window to talk about the car. At first I wasn't totally sure about the yellow color choice but its grown on me and I wouldnt change a thing!

Speaking of which these are the best most comfortable seats i have sat in.. Add to that the limited production its like driving a Maserati or somethign equally as rare.

This car is an absolute blast to drive. Drive one just once and you will be hooked. The 5.7L V8 is a great engine that's well-suited to this car. It handles great for a large coupe and delivers better performance for your dollar than probably anything else out there. The interior is very nice, especially for a Pontiac. There is nothing cheap-looking about it. The seats are large and supportive. I've had mine now for 6 weeks and can't think of a thing I'd change.

Being a former Z28 owner (highly modified), the comparison in quality is unmatched. For a similar level of performance and much better interior design, this car wins hands down.

Car is an awesome driving car. Quite comfortable for 4, though getting into the spacious back seat can be a challenge. If a trip anywhere is on the agenda, pack light... as the GTO has a shockingly small trunk. I have the 6-speed, and it shifts OK except when cold. But what I really dislike is the forced 1-4 upshift under light throttle.

I purchased my 2004 GTO in November 2004. I have 2600 miles on the car and to date have had no problems with it mechanically. I do have a few concerns in the fact that the drivers and passengers windows do not defrost when there is inclement weather. Also the fact that you have to shift the 6 speed manual transmission from 1st to 4th (CAGS) under certain conditions is a pain in the neck! There is a bypass kit to eliminate this feature so I will probably install one soon. Also the fuel economy isn't close to what is stated on the window sticker. I thought that the power would be better but with a heavy car I guess its not too bad. In general I like the car very much and for the pricing it is great.

The 2004 Pontiac GTO was built in Australia by a GM owned company called Holden. The car is well built with a tight body, a decent sport suspension which does make it ride a little rough and includes independant rear suspension. The car is equipped with the LS1 Corvette engine of 350hp which provides the GTO with good power. I chose the manual 6-speed for my transmission option. The interior is leather with bucket seats both front and rear. I have not had any problems with the car since I have owned it and I thoroughly enjoy driving this vehicle.

After having 1999 and 2002 Grand Am GT's, my GTO is an excellent step up and with all the great incentives offered, only very slightly more expensive. I also like the fact that there are very few on the road. Hopefully future models will incorporate suggested improvements so my next GTO will be even better!

I love this car, it handles well, it's a torque monster, the engine note reminds me of the cars from my youth, and the interior is outstanding Pontiac and the Aussies got it right! I have driven my GTO from L.A. to Las Vegas twice what a blast (26MPG) I had the car up to 110MPH and I had plenty of pedal left. I've had my GTO for 6 months and at least 2 times a week someone tells me how cool the car looks and sounds, bland exterior I don't think so. I just saw the 05 Goats at a local dealer and I don't like the hood-scoops. I have only seen 3 other GTO's on the road in 6 months but I see at least 10 to 20 Stangs a day on the road. Pontiac has brought the Muscle back to Muscle car.

Patience paid off as I waited to buy until GM finally offered incentives. Car is comfortable enough for my daily commute, yet still has the power available when I want / need it. The only drawback to this point has been dealing with every 18 year old kid in a Mustang wanting to race at stop lights - I'm 32 and the tickets (and danger to other drivers) stopped being worth it long ago - although I have to admit I've had it up around 120 on open roadways and it purred along at about 3,000 rpm - plenty left if it weren't for the electronic governor! I've owned lots of vehicles and this is the first one I've had that's still a joy to drive every day six months later.

Love this car.........

My first V8. Owned many 4 and 6 cyl and turbos. I Love it. Power at any time. Awesome sound under full throttle. Plenty of comments from bystanders. THey always ask "Is it fast?" My response. Oh yeah, plenty. The build quality is not typical pontiac for this is my third to own. Styling is sleeper which I like. Don't need hoodscoops and other eye candy. Glad there is not tons of them on the road which makes me feel lucky to own one. My wife even likes to drive it and she didn't care for it at first. I took the automatic because not interested in shifting gears anymore and can still get a nice chirp shifting into second gear. Way to go Pontiac with the GTO. Thanks.

I drove a friend's Cadillac CTS-V and immediately decided that I had to have something that was close. I couldn't afford the Cadillac but with incentives and deals the GTO gives me 95% of the performance for 50% of the price. The GTO has excellent comfort and interior style to go with the power and performance. The exterior styling is on the generic side but at least it isn't ticket bait. I grin every time I drive it.

I bought this car in March and have enjoyed every minute of driving it since then. Rebates have dropped the price but I have no regrets. Everyone that sees the car compliments me on it. People have driven up to me to tell me how much they like the car and called out to me, beautiful car, while I was getting gas. The power is great. This takes me back to the feeling of the old muscle cars. Interior is well done. Once you get into the back seats they are as comfortable as the front. GM really did a great job on this car. What a kick it is to drive. I can't wait to go somewhere just so I can drive this car.

Paying $30,300 I was really hoping that Pontiac would at least stand behind their product if something were to go wrong. With only 250 miles on the car the transmission started coming out of second and first gears and would not go into reverse without some coaxing. Along with dark gray paint spots all over the bright yellow exterior, I have already attempted on 3 different occasions to allow Pontiac to correct the problems but they will not even acknowledge them. From Showcase Pontiac's Service Mgr explaining to me that I was not driving the car hard enough to Don Mackey Pontiac telling me they do not know how to work on the car, I CANNOT be MORE DISAPOINTED!

As the owner of a Porsche and Nissan Z, I was innitially impressed by the quality and performance of the GTO. The power and torque are great, but the gas mileage should and could be much better. I'm averaging about 15 miles per gallon mixed driving. Only 20 on the highway. The six speed manual forces you to shift from first to 4th at certain speeds. I find the feature annoying and dangerous. It's very distracting and requires too much effort. I hope no one has an accident. Secondly, my glove box 'fell off' with fewer than 900 miles on the car. Bad sign. Additionally, the defroster does not defog the driver/passenger windows. And the paint is flawed on the front bumper.

When I read on a car forum the amazing discounts on the 04 GTO I could not resist especially since I got a total of $10,000 in rebates and incentives!. The car is great, and I love the overall feel of the car. As a former 02 Camaro SS owner, the interior and build quality of the GTO is a huge leap forward. At first I did not like the styling, but its growing on me. Once again GM has dropped the ball on marketing their products correctly, because for the money these cars should be selling better.

This is the best new muscle car I've ever driven. Interior is very comfort- able. The amenities are outstanding. The only bad thing is the gas mileage. You can't tweek it like the old Muscle cars. Saw the new 2005's and the scoops are great, but are they true ram? Reliability of the GTO is great. Only two prob's to speak of. Seats started to make a ratchet noise after 2 months. (No fix yet per Pontiac), and on steering volume controls go up instead of down once in a while. (Can't determine prob). Car is stylish, mean and growls nicely. A head turner of today. The six stick and engine vet pack is perfect! Gotta get one for my mom. (She's a motor head too!)

GM service was friendly and helpful, not pushy or annoying. This was the third GM dealer I've worked with and they all have a consistency for low key sales push which is wonderful for a consumer. The vehicle purchased was manual yellow jacket with antracite interior and I couldn't be happier. It is a 2004 model and yet has all the power one could ask for.The vehicle has one of the smoothest rides you'll encounter. Corners amazingly. Stereo is loud and clear, picks up reception well even in difficult spots.True dual exhaust sounds wonderful; there is always a nice humm while crusing without stops. Idle sound purrs. Windows tinted perfectly.Leather quality fantastic. Clear coat superior.

I like the style better than the '99 Camaro I traded. This car looks great in my garage, and goes like a demon on the street. Traction control is almost idiot-proof on wet roads.

My 2004 GTO is by far the most refined, comfortable and fun to drive vehicle I have ever owned. It easily surpasses the performance of both the '96 Mustang GT and '98 Camaro Z28 I have owned previously. I do not miss the scary feeling of the rear ends of these cars trying to "kick out" every time a slight road imperfection would be encountered when cornering. The GTO's independent rear suspension (which, along with its motor, it shares with the 2004 Corvette) is a huge improvement over the live axle setup of many other muscle cars, including the '05 Mustang. While the new Mustang may have more flavor in the styling department due to its retro look, I have really come to appreciate the GTO.

Bland styling? No way! I get compliments all the time on how this car looks. Even I thought it looked somewhat bland before purchasing. It looks better and better as the weeks go by. But the performance is what I wanted and I got that in spades. What else you can you buy that comfortably seats four, has a fabulous interior, runs like a scalded cat & costs only $27,000? Nothing. The six speed is smooth and with the amazing torque I usually just go 1st/3rd/5th around town. The exhaust note is very cool, exactly right. On the highway it's quiet and tracks very well. I'm not a boy racer anymore at 53 but I love a hot car that's comfortable. GTO is a grand touring car with lots of bite.

The inside sold me as much as the performance. I am in love. I look forward to going to work in the morning now. I'm most suprised about the build quality. Just like an import. Handling is amazing for a non- Vette. Ride is a bit rough, but well worth it. You have to be an acrobat to access the rear seats, but they are roomy and usable once inside!

I love my GTO, Pontiac may have rushed this car to production, but I think they did a good job. Only irritation is with the dealer, tried some underhanded stuff and took their sweet time with the financial stuff. Car is a rip snortin' good time though, and that traction control on the shifter makes green light tire chirping more tempting. Always turns peoples' heads, especially when the exhaust note hits their ears. Loud Tim Allen grunts with every punch of the gas pedal. Gas mileage is as expected, also like the constant monitoring system and modes on the dash, fun to play with. Strero rocks, but would prefer Boston or Bose like my 2001 GP.

One month into 24 month smart buy on red 6 speed GTO. $7500 off msrp and high residual made this an easy purchase, ($114 per month!) Interior is extremely comfortable, power is immediate, shifts very smooth and wonderful braking action. Averaged 24 mpg on 1000 mile trip running 75. Solid, confortable, fast and rattle free. Higholy recommend any real car enthusiast drive this and you will want one, expecially with the heavy discounting on 2004 model. Only saw one on the road in TX, so it is also a unique car to own. Friends who drove it cannot believe the power and sheer performance of the GTO. As a 60's teenager, this car has the spirit of the original

I am very happy with my 2004, GTO. Every time I get into my GTO I am just as excited as the first time I drove it. The car is extremly fun to drive, and the power is awesom. The pick up you feel when you accelerate really puts you back in your seat. I have had my GTO up to 145 mph and it drives just as smooth as it does at 65 mph. Though I do not recomend driving that fast. In my opion I would recommend the GTO to anyone who is looking to buy an affordable sports car that does not sacrifice on power or comfort to keep the price down.

Some find the design bland, I find the clean lines to be perfect. Not too busy, and very The interior is fantastic and the seats are the best I have ever sat in and yet hold you firmly. The fit and finish of the interior is by far the best I have seen in a GM product. Suspension is tight, and yet on the highway is smooth as silk. Reminds me of a 8 series BMW, but with a better overall ride. With a fully independant rear end with posi-traction grip and handling are well communicated to the wheels. While the suspension may feel German, the sweet sound and powerband is all American V8. The horsepower is right there, with a ton of torque that will put you in your seat.

Wow

Was fully impressed from the first moment with this car and two thousand miles later I still havent gotten the smile off of my face. Before buying, I probably was able to put 20 miles on the car with the salesman in the right seat, so was unable to realy get a full feal for the car until after all the paperwork was signed and drove home. That first drive feeling was unbelievable. It is fun to drive at speed or slowing moving down the road and is still fun to catch the glimpses of other drivers who either catch the GTO badge on the side or the 5.7 on the rear. The inside is perfect and the fit andthe finish is flawless.

I have owned 15 new pontiacs, including 2 other GTO's. Although the exterior styling is somewhat bland this by far is the hightest quality Pontiac I have owned. It is also the fastest in Stock Form even faster than the 1970 GTO Judge Convertale that I owned. the Handling is Precise, The Interior will rate up there with any General Motors product that has been built to date.

In Love With My GTO

I got the manual 6-speed. Good Choice. Fun to drive. At any time I can push in the clutch and give it a rev and the sound of the downshift is incredible. I was anticipating that it would not get any looks because of its non-vintage look, but the opposite is true; people stare at the GTO/5.7 Litre logo as I pull beside them. You can't beat the power, speed and performance $33K.

Still "new" but a great car so far...Rides and drives great, corners fine for what it is. It has plenty of "gitty up" and it seems to stop on a dime with no brake fade. I think it is a real kick to drive. It handles good and It looks a little deceiving then you mash it and it becomes this other car. Fit and finish is really good and my car's paint is flawless. I pretty much love it so far.

I drive 40000 miles a year with work, bought my first gto when they first arrived, didn't have it long before my wife took over, just bought my 2nd just last month. totally awesome. people knock the fuel, but if you want performance, power, and the enjoyment of it, then you can't beat it. it's actually quite acceptable on the highway with the 6th gear, in town not so great if you like to play, but it's worth it. a few complaints about the sound system, but unless you are looking for maximum, it's fine too. just take this care anywhere, and for all the plain styling so many criticize, people just beg to look and ask questions. i'll keep it til it drops and then put it back together. love it!

Much superior daily handling than the Trans Am it replaced. It's faster, has a drop dead gourgous interior and is tight as a drum. Driving it after owning two T/A's in a row takes a bit of getting used to but it's well worth the wait. It was like going from a shifter cart to a Formula racer. It has done things in the handling department the F-cars could never approach. The IRS makes a big difference in keeping the rubber on the road. This car seems German in it's execution. Fit and finish is excellent, both interior and exterior. Materials and workmanship are the best ever for a GM car. Though the price seemed high initially, after living with the car, it ture out to be a bargain. Awesome!!

This is the kind of vehicle that you enjoy to drive on the road. It demands attention and respect in eveyones eyes. At first peopel will look and then look even harder to see what it is. This machine in my mind is the equivilent to any overseas vehicle that would like to tango. For the price it is the best you can ask for, pure muscle and respect. I think the only downfall is the sound system could have done better. But if you are thinking of getting a performance car forget the foriegn and go american--------- I have the kills to prove it.

I've had my GTO for a little over a month now and have read a lot of reviews. It's discouraging to read many of consumers negative 'low-blows' to this GTO, but then again, I have seen just as many positives from people that actually own them. Everyone has an opinion... I am sufficiently satisfied with my GTO. Performance- wise...couldn't ask for more. Exterior, I could agree that more could have been done, but then again, if GM built the car to have 'louvers, scoops, vents...etc' then what would car owners get to add?? I look at my GTO as a blank canvas for me to custom. GM did the hard part by installing a killer interior with performance that sends riders to the chiropractor.

I feel the new GTO is incredible. Yes, the new GTO marketing doesn't hold a candle to those of the 60's. True, it's the first GTO w/o a Hurst shifter and hood scoop. But have the naysayers driven this thing? Apparently not. It goes like no factory GTO before it has and has more features than Bonnevilles (minus OnStar, moonroof, and heated seats). Standard. More would have embraced it had dealers not been greedy w/$5000 premiums. Yes, I long for trunk space. I have had a few oddball glitches occur, but overall I love it. Nothing bites my backside more than people who gripe about things they haven't even taken a moment to firsthand experience. Before you base an opinion on it, drive it.

I drive 35 miles each way to and from work. The GTO is a real fun car to drive. It's a fast car that will easily beat the Mustang GT. My brother has a 2003 Mustang Cobra and we ran them 3 times. I won the first one but unfortunately he won the following two but none of the three races were run away wins and 2 of the three were decided by less than a car length. My brother likes my car as much as he likes his and concedes that my interior is much better with the exception of the stereo. We both agree that the GTO stereo sucks and that my cousins Monte Carlo has a better stock stereo. In close I guess it's like this. The GTO is a refined sports coupe that's fun to drive with great power.

I've had this car for just over a week now. I have bought a K&N filter and a Beltroics Vector Accelerometer from Jegs. The factory stats on the 6sp is 0-60 in 5.3 and the 1/4 mile in 13.8 @ 105. After alot of practice on the starts, my best time WITH a witness in the car is 0-60 in 4.70 flat and the 1/4 mile in 13.35 at 106. I knew from magazine articles that the car was faster than advertised by Pontiac. I had seen sub 5 second 0-60 runs and a 13.53 1/4 by muscle car mag. By the way, if you want to look it up or don't believe me, the Beltronics Vector FX2 has an out of the box accuracy of 1/100 of a millisecond. Super high quality GM that handles good

Okay, I know people give this car low ratings on it's styling but I really think this car has nice clean lines and it is devoid of any typical excess Pontiac cladding and ground effects. I like the fact that it doesn't scream out, "here I am." The sleeper factor is awesome. The GTO is a very well built car. The interior is first class and I don't ever expect a shake or rattle. Performance is beautiful. The last car I can recall with as much factory power on tap is the 1986 Buick Grand National. The LS1 with 6 speed provides plenty of good old American tire shredding horsepower and torque - you have to love that. The only, and I mean only negatives I have on this car is the trunk space.

So far I like the car. It is very well put together. I'm not crazy about the styling of the rear of the car. The interior is comfortable, with lots of leg room, and well put together. It has much more power then you can use and get wonderful gas mileage for a car with that much power. So far, it has averaged 19.2 for all our driving. It handles very well and ride is a little harsh but no more then expected for this kind of car.

Many people keep refering to the fact that the GTO doesn't look like a muscle car. Well a lot of that is the perception of history. The original GTO was a plain jane Pontiac Tempest with a common styling for it era. Pontiac took this everyday two door 'going to church' car and dropped in a powerful drivetrain, added a hood scoop, exhaust and a bigger set of shoes. With the New GTO, they took a well established up to date styled car, the Holden Monaro, dropped in a powerful drivetrain and added a healthy exhaust. Sound familiar?? The only thing missing is the hoodscoop. Of course with the new technology in 30 years, the creature comforts are much stronger.

I am very impressed with the performance, build quality and ride. This is a BIG automobile with a real (comfortable) back seat. A true 2+2 sports coupe. I choose the six speed version to avoid the "gas guzzler" tax and because I prefer a standard transmission. The design is clean and contrary to most opinions, I like it! The color, Torrid red, really pops! GM also offered $3500 cash back with 2.9% financing for five years. Altogether, I was able to reduce the price to $25,200.00 from $33,179.00. What a deal, world class performance for the price of a family car!

I've had my GTO since February,and still have the grin on my face. No problems after 6700 miles, and having fun safely and with authority on the road. I have the automatic, and after a recent dyno tune and tranny adjustment, the car has a performance level close to a manual transmission. The 'sleeper' look keeps me out of traffic court, as does the necessary radar detector. This car is a bargain at MSRP--the deals offered right now make it an absolute steal.

I waited until I got some miles on my new GTO before submitting a review. I now have over three thousands miles on the odometer and I have not had one problem or any squeaks/rattles with this car. The car is very quick (I have the automatic) and comfortable. I can drive the GTO like a regular car 98% of the time (freeway commuting) I even have room for a baby’s seat in the back. When I want a sports car all I have to do is hit the throttle. This is the best car I have ever had in my driveway. I think the GTO most practical sports car on the market. I made the right choice.

This modern muscle car did not have to have the GTO name. It is it's own muscle car made with today's features and technology. This is the first car of my era that I can think of that could possibly be an icon in the future. The 2000's has not seen too many strong American cars that have the right to be considered 'Muscle'(without being $50k or higher). I am as excited about this as my Ftaher-in-law was when he was my age buying his GTO brand new. Who would have known then that his car would have been such an icon. This is history in the making. Thank you Pontiac for giving my generation the chance to be part of something great!

Sunday morning coming home from Toys R'Us drove past the Pontiac dealership and stopped just to look around. Never saw or heard of this car before. What is it? Had to bend down to see the side plate, GTO 5.7 L. What? Got behind the wheel, nice! Salesman comes out of nowhere and sits on the passenger side. Want o test drive it? Gave me the key and I started the dammed thing. Rooom! I could feel the power in my hands as the seat vibrated, room, roooom. Shifted to drive and the whole car tilted backwards. Stepped on the accelerator and I felt the G force as I was pushed against the seat. Awsome machine!!!! Bought it. Expensive and a thrill to drive.

As an owner of many of the late 60's early 70's muscle cars, I was one of the many that were a bit leary of the release of the 'new' gto. Most of us said the same thing..."Well, it sure don't look like a GTO." But after many months of shopping for a new car, I found myself repetedly returning to the Pontiac dealer. After several test drives, I just could'nt get enough! It may not have the reto look, but after driving one for 5 months, the gto has earned my respect. It has the muscle and grit I remember of the gto's of the old days, with the agility and grace of modern technology. For me, this GTO has renewed my faith in GM, and, made driving fun again!

I just bought my GTO 07/31 and it is a BLAST to drive, the power is great and the throaty sound of the exhaust reminds me of my High School days when everyone had a muscle car. The rear bucket seats are cool and the instrument cluster is very impressive I almost forgot the suede on the doors and in the front. I like the brushed aluminum finish this is not my Father's Pontiac. The interior is also made with very high quality parts and materials unlike other Pontiac's which kept me from getting a Grand Prix last year (I am very thankful for that). The GTO is PURE MUSCLE with a little luxury thrown in to keep you happy. It is a mixture of a 67 Firebir

I just got my goat and she's a keeper. This vehicle is awesome. The performance is outstanding. Interior and exterior finishing on the car is awesome. The comfort level is very high. This car is most definately a winner on all levels. Sure, it doesn't look like the "old school" goats, but does it need to? I think not. Awesome. Simply awesome!!!

I love my GTO and its Performance. The interior is well done and I like the red suede and red leather mixed in with black leather. The red stiching mixed with black leather on the stering wheel and shift nob are great details. It also does not matter what gear you are in using the six speed manual, all you have to do is give it some gas and you have fairly instant get up and go. The handling takes a bit to get use to but settles in and corners very well. My prior car is a 2000 Honda Civic Si.

I went from a 2004 Chrysler 300M Special to the GTo and all I can say is wow. This car is definitely more "me". Black on black, and yes, it's an auto, but that just makes her a quick performer. I took her on a 1200mi road trip to Tucson and back, averaged just shy of 22mpg, and let me tell you, I wasn't going "slow" by any stretch of the imagination. In this car, that's impossible. When you turn the car on and hear that rumble, it's simply intoxicating. When you rev the engine, people look. And Autozone employees LOVE to fawn over it. But so do I.

This is one amazing vehicle. I have owned the car for a little more than 4 months and have around 5,500 miles on her. I still get excited every time I get behind the wheel. I love it when I am stopped at a light and people ask me to roll my window down so they can ask questions about it. And to see people driving by doing double takes is great too. One of the most comfortable vehicles I have ever been in. This car comes highly recommended by me.

I'm over 6 foot and with my seat all the way back, there is still plenty of leg room in the back. 350 horsepower. 0-60 in 5.3 secs. (Less with just a couple of modifications)

This is a car that deserves the GTO badge. I may only be 23, but I have been in cars a long time and have driven a lot of them. When I heard that GM was comming back out with the old Goat I thought that I would see if it would compare with the old classics. And I was suprised by the power and agility that GM has put in this car.

I'VE HAD THE BMW M3 TOO SMALL, HARSH RIDE, NOT THE SAME POWER. GO GTO. GREAT AC GETS SUPER COLD. I HAD A LEXUS FELT LIKE DRIVING IN YOUR LIVING ROOM VERY BORING. GREAT SEATING I'M A BIG GUY AND HAVE NO COMPLAINTS, I CAN EVEN STRETCH OUT MY LEFT LEG FULLY, WHICH IS GREAT ON A LONG TRIP. NEED TO PACK LIGHTER ON A TRIP USE COLLAPSABLE LUGGAGE.

I love the power the GTO has. It has a stiff sports car ride and corners well. I am 6'0 and have plenty room in the back seat. I wish I had some more trunk space. I like the "plain" design because it doesn't attract attention until I leave a light.The 17 inch wheels are a standout.It's really a nice toy.

I had to choose between a Corvette and the M6 GTO. While the Corvette definately looks better, it has one thing working against it. It looks like a Corvette. The GTO's non-flashy styling will probably save me a couple of tickets. The interior: I find it simply amazing that GM was able to create something so awe inspiring and functional. I can easily seat 4 adults comfortably. Although the gates are a little questionable and the shift is a little long it is not unreasonable. Nothing a short shifter can't fix! The drive shaft/Axle halves could stand to be a little larger. Wheel hop is a mild problem as is on most independent rear drive V8's.

What a great car. I traded in my 02 TA WS6 for this beauty and I am in no way disapointed. It blows the TA away in every aspect. The GTO has superior performance, handling and comfort. OK, it may not have the looks of a TA but I prefer the understated look. The engine note is wonderful. I have the Torrid Red six speed manual.

This may be the car that renews my belief in American auto manufacturers. A true "spiritual cousin" to an M3 (could use a little better handling), if you're "sitting on the fence", do yourself a favor and save $20K over an M3. Quality build, fit, and finish plus that lovely American V8 rumble. What a pure pleasure!! The first car I've bought since my M3 that has brought just a huge smile to my face every time I drive it.

This is one of the only cars I could find in the 40k or under price range that offered rear wheel drive and v8 power and will seat 4. The other cars I drove before buying the Gto were (Acura TL V6, cadillac cts v6,Lincoln ls v8,mustang cobra and crysler 300c) the v6's felt week, The Lincoln was price allot higher, The mustang felt fast but is not as nice inside and does not seat 4 adults in confort, the Chryler felt to big and did not handle as well as the GTO.

My new GTO is one great muscle car. I am 55 years old. I owned a GTO in 1970. Since that time, auto mfg has produced gutless cars. Nice bodies and creature comforts but no muscle. I've waited for the new GTO for a while. It's 350 is all there. The comfort is truly Pontiac. Thank you for bringing raw power back to an American automobile. By the way, my other car is a Porsche.

Sitting in the driver's seat is like coming home. Once you find yourself there, it can be difficult to remove yourself. The comfort found in it's wonderful seat is almost therapeutic. The feel and location of the wheel and stick are right on key, and a pleasure to hold. Once on the road, you forget yourself. Acceleration and handling manners that ask "How much more would you like?", and willingly comply to your every whim. The smooth ride makes any journey comfortable and tireless. I find myself taking the long way home. This is one classy vehicle, and I fall deeper in love with it after every mile!

Three mustangs and one trans am later the gto is hands down the best ride:performance yet. It almost looks like three different cars at the front back and side angles. A performance car without a oil pressure gauge is a little disapointing. A higher geared O D would be nice for those long trips. Overall it's a pleasant driving experience.

I've owned my Red Goat for about 3 weeks. It is true that the exterior is a bit subtle. But on the other hand, when you start it up, that is when you turn the heads. It is hard to keep from smiling when you drive it! And like another reviewer said, you find yourself turning down the sound system to listen to the engine!

I thought the car has a boring exterior, I thought the interior was really well designed, but the audio controls on the steering wheel felt very cheap, and so did some of the interior hard ware, the sun visors feels like they were made out of card board that were covered with cloth, The seats were top quality on the other hand. I have no doubt that the power train will hold up, I just dont think that 31k is what this car is worth. Save a few bucks, and put a ls1 v8 in a Saturn L300 AKA Catera, and you get 2 extra doors free, that basically is what this car is.

This car is just a blast to drive. I purchased a 6 speed sight unseen. The vehical has turned out to be better looking in person that any of the photos that have been published. The interior fit and finish are better than anything I've seen from any GM product in years. Unfortunatly the shifter is a piece of junk. Each and every morning it's like arm wrestling a gorilla in an attempt to get it in gear. Thankfully my dealer has agreed to make any fixes that they can. If that dosen't fix it I'm going to look for an aftermarket replacement

I have had my 6 speed GTO for 10 days. It is simply awesome. It sucks $2.50/Gal 91 octane like a banshee, but what do you expect? Lots of wheel hop when shifting because of the torque/hp. Have to get a CAGS (skipshift), eliminator like my 95 Z28 6-Speed LT-1 Ragtop has. Where is the oil pressure gauge? I guess in the computer. Computer takes time to learn. But when all is said..

I've driven nothing but Japanese and German for 15 years.This car changed my view of what American cars can be! Everything says:"Quality":terrific seats,top-notch fit and finish,tasteful styling that lets the performance send the message. Engine response is "right now" and ferocious;handling tight and predictable, yet without screaming: "look at me". The normal American shakes,rattles and rolls, just aren't there; but the "fun factor" is in spades.

The acceleration and smooth shifting 6 speed are incredible and have to be experienced. I find myself turning down the stereo so I can listen to the exhaust note while running through the gears. The leather seats and trim are luxurious and comfortable but that’s where the impressive interior stops. The stereo isn’t very clear and not very loud (even for factory). Also the Heat/AC knobs have that cheap, fragile feeling. The steering column is plastic and pops out of place when being adjusted (tilt/telescope). Over all it is a great ride and way too fun to drive. I just wish people would go to the dealer and stop chasing me down to look at it!

A fix for the headlights is to aim them up a bit. Its not that they are not bright enough, all cars are the same, its that they shine too close to the front of the car. Adjust them up just six inches against a wall. To do this: 1. Open the hood and locate the headlight adjustment screw (maybe look in manual or ask a mechanic). 2. At night, adjust this screw so the headlight shines approximently 6" higher. DO NOT adjust it up so high that it shines into the backseat of cars in front of you, thats too high and annoying to others (extremely!). I know this will work. I don't know why GM has taken to adjusting them too low (same on my '97 Z28).

Took delivery this weekend and haven't slept since. Fantastic car!! This is an affordable,QUALITY, sophistaced hot rod. Forget the understated looks... it's suppose to be that way. Just like the original. I added an aftermarket cold air intake and stage 1 chip to boost the HP to 455. Interior is far superior to any US built GM car, except possibly the Cadillac line. Save enough on the car to afford lots of tires and tickets. Gas isn't an issue with an average MPG of 20. Also very pleased with the interior room, as I am 6'3" and 280lbs.

The GTO is Back, baby!

Waiting over 30 years for a "real" GTO, the wait has indeed been worth it. No Pontiac in recent memory gives more bang for the buck. Fun, fast, comfortable; all of the pluses of my old T/A with none of the vices.

it goes fast and is sooo comfortable

about all I can say is this car is awesome. megga power and so comfortable. I love everything about this car. the mustang cobra svt may be a tad faster but when you sit in a gto and then get into a mustang there is no comparison. the mustang feels like a cheap econo rocket.

New GTO Rocks!

After a 30 year absence, Pontiac's legendary GTO is back. A trim midsize coupe, this car features the LS1 5.7 litre engine, packing 350 horsepower driving the rear wheels (as a proper sports coupe should). The GTO sports one of the most attractive interiors ever in a GM car.

The best car I've ever owned

The '04 GTO has to be the best car I've ever owned. From its understated exterior, to its Corvette underpinnings, to it excellently appointed interior the GTO is the perfect car. The $33,000 price tag is a real bargain given the performance and total vehicle package. In the interior you will not find another vehicle with better seats. The controls are clearly marked and easy to operate. There is not a lot of "fluff" inside to distract the driver, just a great stereo, good HVAC control, a non-GM cruise control (this is good) and a trip computer with meaningul information.

AWESOME

This car is everything I expected it to be and then some. Performance, handling, ride, and interior comfort are superior to anything Pontiac has produced previously. It is a joy to drive and does live up to its heritage of being the first true Muscle Car.

Anyone who complains about this car must not have drove one. I bought mine and love it. Smooth but responsive ride and loads of power. Not many cars advise you to shift from 1st to 4th if you are not getting on it. Interior is superb. Exterior styling is sleek and looks great. I know it is not the eye grabbe the trans am was, but at every stop light, people stop and looks at what i am driveing. I have no complaints.

I put a deposit down on this car 18 months ago without even seeing a picture of the new GTO. We're just thrilled with the actual vehicle. The fit and finish are supurb as is the quality of the interior. It is as exciting to drive as my first GTO was in 1964. The six speed is very smooth. The car is exceptional in all respects and Bob Lutz should be commended.

SPEEDING TICKET (21 MILES OVER) 81 IN A 60 NOT EVEN 24 HOURS OLD. I DIDNT REALIZE I WAS GOING THAT FAST. I WAS DISAPPOINTED WHEN I FIRST SAW IT, WAS EXPECTING TO SEE MORE OF A GTO LOOK, I THINK IT SHOULD HAVE THE HOOD SCOOPS ON IT LIKE THE NEW GRAND AM. FOR SOME REASON THE WINDOWS FOG UP VERY QUICK WHEN ITS RAINING OUT,AND LIGHTS AT NIGHT ARENT VERY BRIGHT. 1ST GTO IN OKLAHOMA.

NICE RIDE

My only complaint is the manual trans skip shift feature. It's not the easiest thing to get used to I've been shifting 1,3,5 for years. I'm hoping that someone dosen't run into the back of me while I'm struggeling to find a usable gear.

Better than I had imagined

I have owned several Corvettes and a Z28 and was looking for something that was a little more livable. When I saw the GTO I thought that was exactly what I was looking for. The car handles great, is very comfortable, does not have the typical tacky Pontiac design "features" and has a wonderful engine. Some argue that the car does not look like the original GTO, but few cars look like the cars from over thirty years ago. I also like the somewhat conservative styling. The more I drive it the more I am impressed with it.

Great!

Great performance and handling. Very nice interior but truck space is limited due to moving the gas tank. Styling is too conservitive but oncce behind the wheel that goes away. This is what the GTO is all about lots of HP in a small passenger car.

best car ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't let the tame exterior of this car fool you. I am very excited with the performance and handling of my new GTO. This car drives like a true dynomo Everything from the the nice deep rumble sound to the wheels burning rubber. I also think that this car can be an everyday driver as well. Perfect combination for me!

I love it! Already have over 1000 miles on it. This sucker goes...in a straight line as well as the twisties. It is a pain in the but to wait for the rear seat to go forward or backward. Once again, handling and acceleration is unparalelled with any other car I have driven...which is a few.

I cant believe the performance and feel of the GTO! My husband talked me into buying the car even without driving it. (I had NEVER done that before). But, I can honestly say this is the BEST car I have EVER driven. I would recomend this vehicle to anyone!!!

The 2004 GTO is an awesome car! I actually like the understated exterior look. The interior is very well done, with excellent head room, and comfortable front and rear seating. The Blaupunkt stereo is also a nice touch. However, for me, the new GTO is all about performance. I have the six- speed manual, and have found the power and ride of my car to be simply fantastic. Bottom line, you are getting Corvette-like performance for $20,000 less. For me, this car delivers the goods at a fair price.

The GTO has finally here !!!!

I was the previous owner of a 1967 Pont.GTO and I loved the car. This car I hope will only inhance the immage of the name Pont. GTO. I just hope its as reliable as it looks. The front looks a little like the Pont. Grand Prix. I presently own one, and its a Great Car and fun to drive.

No matter what the magazines say, this car was worth every penny! I've gotten alot of positive comments on it's looks, and the enterior is really nice. And of course the power is the icing on the cake. The things I look for when purchasing a car are: Looks, power, good radio, and quality. This car has them all. With only 18,000 built a year, for 3 years, I'm totally happy that I have mine now.

The riding was flauless. I've always grown up in a AMerican made family and the Pontiac GTO has had nothing but improvements from it's older models. It can still live up to its standards.
