I have been to a lot of dealerships over the years and usually do not look forward to it. Tried to buy a car at a Buick dealership closest to my residence. The sales consultant was good but the sales manager just would not listen or give me a price. Insisted it is a complicated process and needed me to commit to the purchase. I couldn't believe it. Visited Mike Juneau's . The sales consultant listened to what I was asking for. The sales manager gave me a price. I picked up the car the next day.Buying a car should not be complicated and this was the first place I have been to where it wasn't.Low pressure - they give you a price - no hidden fees at financing. Mike Juneau's gets the sale, service and a satisfied customer.Special thanks to sales consultant MARTINIS HUGHES. The next time I buy a car I'll be looking forward to it.Mike Kehoe

I have an '06 6-speed in Spice Red and this is by far one of the nicest cars GM could have offered. The interior is as comfortable as a new Cadillac, and very original. NOTHING on the inside was borrowed from any other US GM cars, since it's Holden. The only problems I've had are the junk stock struts and they're not difficult to replace. Also, it's difficult to get replacement parts since you can only get them Australia, otherwise if you find them here in the US, you'll pay through the nose. It's an absolutely amazing and powerful car, just take care of them!!!

bought new in 2006, manual trans. After initial problems with front struts (bad oil from factory), and subsequent front anti-roll bar link failure, car has run well. Its basically an engine with a car tagging along. Shifter rattles. Otherwise, I'm very happy with it. Love the styling and the ride, fuel economy good for a 400HP (typically 22.9 mpg). Low overhang in the back. I added a receiver (for bike rack), and it hits the ground on some driveway exits. Outward visibility is poor, but that's a style compromise. Ingress/egress hampered by low doorway - still hit my head on that. Love the car - probably keep 20 years.

Move out of my way!

I bought my black on black goat in March of 2010. I didn't even drive it, i just started it up. I drove it off the lot and hit the highway from Modesto to Sacramento. The wheels chirp with a touch of the pedal and I love my car and thank God all the time for it. No mechanical problems. My auto shifter did break (the part that pushes in to engage the trans) but I glued with crazy glue. People love to scratch up my back bumper because they're haters and careless. Don't hate, appreciate. Maybe if they save up their money and if there are any left they can have one too. People always say "what! you have a gto!" I say "yes, black on black and I love it", it beats anything on the road!

Pleasantly surprised

I have a 6 spd manual and I have to say its the best car I've ever owned and I'm putting this against past cars of mine such as 91 mr2 turbo, 96 Impala ss, 95 infiniti g20 and 00 Lincoln ls v8. It rides better than the Lincoln and has more power than the Impala. On one hand it doesn't handle like an mr2 but for what it is its fun to push into the corners and bring out with 400 ft. Lbs ! Sideways. The tires are cheap to replace because of size. Exhaust tone is better sound to me than the very nice 6 disc blaupunkt stereo. Bose should have been the choice on that. Service is easy. With 20k for miles when I bought it for 18k it's a steal ! Avg mpg is 24 and thats from stop and go to 75 mph highway.

I have a 6spd manual Spice Red Metallic with the black interior. It was love at first drive. I grew up riding in my uncle's 1968 GTO so when Pontiac came out with this car I knew that some day I had to own one. The torque of the LS2 is something you cannot describe accurately with words and the 6 spd makes it even more blissful. The suspension is adequate but you won't be winning any autocross meets anytime soon. Contrary to what some people may think as far as styling is concerned, the original GTO was nothing more than a dressed up Tempest with a bigger engine so I don't see the big deal with purists wanting a retro looking Goat.

Re-introduced in 2004, the GTO early press reviews raved about the driving experience, interior and build quality, but the exterior styling left everyone underwhelmed. Many of us who fondly recalled the GTO’s of the muscle car era felt the new version didn’t live up to the memory, and sales didn’t meet GM’s expectations. Oh so many missed a great car. Open the hood and you will find one of the best motors on the planet, the General Motors LS2, a 400 horsepower V8 that can motivate you to 60 in under 5 seconds. Stealth looks combined with the LS2 power plant make for a modern muscle car with capabilities that require you take a deeper look to fully appreciate.

Love my '06 GTO. Truly a refined modern muscle car with comfort. I now have 64K miles on my black/black Goat (have both factory options: 18"wheels and 6-Speed manual trans). First thing I did was replace the stock shifter with a HURST billet short throw unit (chrome flat handle/black knob). Other upgrades include a VOLANTE Cold-air intake, Magnaflow cat- back exhaust system, 180 degree TStat, E3 Sparkplugs, MSD plug wires, Royal Purple synthetic lubricants throughout and Diablosport tuning. The original 400HP/400TQ is estimated to be about 445HP/450Torque. Current best fuel efficiency is 28.51 MPG at 75mph sustained on a 1,360 highway trip. I average 19-20 city and 25-26 highway!

I wanted a GTO since they came out in 2004, I finally got one, in an automatic burnt orange. I couldn't be happier with this car. So far I have only put about 100 miles on it in town. It sure does turn some heads. This is pretty much the only sports car I can drive being that I am 6'7" 370lbs. I tried getting in a challenger, and charger, but the center console dugg into my leg in the wrong spot, and the insurance on the SRT8 was ridiculous. Plus the GTO will beat the 50k SRT8 all day long stock to stock. Hell if I put 50k into my Goat, I would have a 1500+hp car. In my opinion the GTO is the best muscle car. If you are looking at on, GET IT, if you have one LOVE IT!

Fun to drive good performance for the money. This is my second GM product and would buy a Ford next time. Have had a half dozen Fords and never saw the service department. This my second GM and new the service guy at both dealers on a first name basis. 5- weeks of ownership and already have my 3rd service appointment. Similar experience when I purchased a Cadillac Deville. No major problems but lots of small stuff. It s not the problems so much as the inconvenience. All the trips back and forth to the dealer, being late to work cause you have drop of the car and then having to leave early to pick it up.

From the day I bought my '06 quicksilver GTO had a smile on my face everytime I get behind the wheel. I like the fact that you do not see one on every corner and get a wave from fellow GTO owners on the road. Averaged almost 25mpg and 400 miles to a tank when I drove from New Mexico to Michigan.

Have always had interest in uncommon cars. Wanted a C6 vette (see numbers of these every day) but still have teen at home and needed a back seat. The power along with the not-around- every-corner availability has proven to be a fantastic match. Everywhere I go someone wants to know what it is and does it go as fast as it looks and sounds. It provides the ideal combination of usable pedal to the road power and performance wanted in a new muscle car with the comfort level the 60's cars could only dream of. Even though it requires premium gas, the 21 mpg average mileage is higher than expected.

What more can you say? 400 HP. Quiet, smooth ride, handles good and can take off like a rocket in a heartbeat. Sure the y could have done more with the appearance but that's what makes this car such a good package. Yeah some people may have bought a bad one and come on here and rip the car, but you'll have that with any model. Take it for a spin, you won't be disappointed. I sure wasn't.

I drive my GTO daily when I'm in town. Unfortunately the car sits at the local airport 3-4 days per week. The car is perfect for me as a daily driver. It has great power, it's unique in that the GTO is not so plentiful out there that people see them everywhere so they notice it when they do see one, it handles well for the muscle car it is and it's comfortable even for me at 6'4" tall.

I've got the more rare Impulse Blue Metallic '06 and I love her to death. Aside from a few things breaking (Water Pump went out, Radiator died twice, gas cap lock popping loose) I absolutely love this car. I've had several different Mustangs and once I drove this car I traded in the '94 Cobra I had to get this Lucky To Own car. I am actually designing a custom cold-air intake for mine and I hope to patent it and hopefully have it out for all you other goat lovers to buy at a much cheaper price than K&N intakes. Look for it soon! I've had mine on the 1/4 mile twice and had a huge grin all the way down the track. Especially since I went up against a Mustang GT and won on my first pass.

Acquired this car new after turning in an '04 BMW 330 coupe. Definitely great power for the money. It doesn't handle like a BMW or Porsche, but those aren't muscle cars. Got the 6spd manual with the 18" wheels. Average 21 mpg in mixed driving, when I behave. The rear can get sloppy with slight road imperfections or slippery surfaces, but it teaches respect. After over 2 years I still dislike the gearbox, though. I despise the 1 to 4 lock-out in city driving, and it repeatedly pops out of gear. But just one stab at the throttle removes all frustrations. The exhaust note sells the car. It is quiet when you're cruising, but loud when you get into it.

This car has a better build quality, inside and out than the domestics seem to have. The performance is first rate. Mine has the 6 speed tranny. This engine has so much midrange power...It flat out hauls.

After having owned a 320HP Supra, and a 280 HP Mustang, this is absolutely my favorite car to date. The LS2 is fantastic, along with the 6 speed tranny (borrowed from the Z06 Corvette) and the rest of the car is generally fantastic as well. The interior is large enough to fit my 6'2" 240 lb frame very comfortably whether in the front, or back. The onbord computer is great with more options than a car this price should have. The stock stereo is great quality as well with an adjustable subwoofer accessable through the trunk. With average fuel economy of between 18 MPG city and 27 MPG highway (based on my own spirited driving), fuel consumption is quite low. Overall a great performance bargain!

When I went to a quarter mile track near where I live and I heard and saw one of these beautiful sleepers go down the track, I had to have one. Luckily only 2 months later there was a beautiful Cyclone grey one in mint condition ( you could eat off the engine) sitting in my garage. I have loved getting up every morning since knowing that I get to drive it every day. It's powerful, comfortable and the most fun automobile I have ever owned. I cannot stop smiling every time I get behind the wheel. What an awesome car!

I purchased an '06 GTO over a year and a half ago and still smile every time I start it up. It is by far the best car that I have ever owned and a blast to drive. The car looks much better in person than in pictures and most people have no idea what it is. The engine sounds great and the acceleration is impressive. The car may have sold better if the styling was more retro and less European but it is nice driving a car that you don't see at every stop light. The seats are very comfortable and the gas mileage is not too bad considering the power under the hood. It has been very reliable and the car can be modded if 400 hp is not enough for you.

I bought this car brand new from the dealer in 2007 even though it was a 2006. I love the power, and the looks. I added an aftermarket sunroof (it wasn't an available option). My first time at the drag races in anything worth racing and ran 13 flat in an automatic. Even though I love the car, I would never buy another one. I have had nothing but problems with this one. Current mileage is 14911. Last week a sprag in the transmission went out. A/C broke twice, plastic chromes on console and steering wheel bubble from heat, glove box snapped, makes clicky noises all over that dealership can't fix. Floor mat clips are bad design (replaces 6 times), needs a convertible seat, Blaupunkt stinks!

The Holden boys get it. Big engine with great styling and quality goodies inside. No wonder Bob Lutz looked at this car and brought it to the states. Other than the Vette GM does not have clue when it comes to building a performance automobile. My initial thoughts about the car in 04 was that it looked like an extended wheel base Grand Am with a 5.7 liter engine which was just OK. By 06 the Aussie brain trust got it right. True dual exhaust, hood scoops and a 6.0 rocket engine under the hood. Mine is a red on red six speed pavement pulverizer. Gimme a break this is a 13 second car out of the box. It's a vette with a back seat and trunk with a high quality cowhide interior. None to the GOAT. RIP GTO.... The Pontiac / Holden boys need to develop a G8 coupe to compete with the 2010 Camaro and Genesis coupes. Hopefully GM will allow the boys from down under to make another great muscle car with a six speed and only two doors.

After buying the wife her convertible, I had eyes on a new Vette, but with a 12yr old still at home 2 seats just did not fit. Have had performance cars all my life (from SS402 Chevelles to 5.0 Mustangs, Shelby Z Daytonas, Turbo 350Z's and still have a 76 vette )and enjoy a car you don't see every day. Researched and found the GTO, power, handling, comfort and different styling. Found a 7500 mile 06 6spd (owned for only 3 months) and have smiled ever since. It is not a BMW M5, but the performance numbers are close enough, and my son enjoys riding in it as much as I enjoy driving it. Not to mention it is less than half the price of the M5 and a lot less to insure.

Well I kept the car for a little while and it was a good experience. I wouldn't buy it again though due to the following reasons. 1) the car has no steering feel and it doesn't communicate with you at all so you cant drive with precision 2) the back seat has a lot of room but getting in and out is big problem and trust me it is. 3) Resale values are horrible but I didnt look at this when I bough it brand new. 4) Moding can be expensive and there are some mods you need right away like shifter and springs and shocks/ struts. Better tires. Acceleration is great and so far it's faster in STRAIGHT LINE than these: 350z, evo,mustang, srt8,E46 M3, Speed6, S4,C55 AMG. It's a lot of car for the money

The car starts right up every morning. The drive is kind of bumpy due to the sporty suspension. I love the small block v-8. Runs better when driven hard, like most corvette engines. Dislike the locking mechanism for the door locks. Wont let you lock the doors with out pushing the button. The passenger seat is horribly slow to move forward and back. So getting people or children in the back is not fun. The shifter feels long, and the exhaust note is great at higher rpms. The headlights should have been xenon. The blaupunkt cd player distorts easily with bass. The steering is heavy on fast corners. straight acceleration is phenomenal. Ill never buy another one, but ill keep mine.

After taking a test drive I was hooked to say the least. and after finding the brazen orange color under the spotlight at a local dealer I had to have one. Less than a week later I am the proud owner of a brazen orange 6- speed that gets great fuel mileage and second looks from those not knowing what had just passed them. Getting on the local interstate is just some of the fun when those 400 plus horses are put to the test, the feel of the engines torque really sets you in your seat just proving the power is there, Pontiac sums it up best We Build Excitement (oh just to mention 23 mpg highway/18 around town occasional flogging is my est mpg) having fun

The greatest thing is power. First test drive hooked in less than one on ramp to the interstate. Excellent gas mpg 18/23 and with the power you've got this thing is sick. I changed out the stock suspension with the Pedders Street II and the ride quality is about the same but the way it handles through the curves is crazy fun. I cannot tell you how many times I've had looks from people - every stoplight it seems, and even from Lamborghini drivers. If you haven't bought one, and you're still undecided, you better try to find one that has less then 10K on it because once these babies are gone, they'll be talked about years from now, as the car that got away. I've had it for 19 months, 0 shop time.

This car is addictive to drive. I have an Impala and the GTO and it is so much fun to drive the GTO that it's hard to put it away when the weather's bad. I was addicted to it from the first test drive. I almost sold it due to the mpg but decided that anything this much fun SHOULD be expensive to drive. After the Pedder's suspension, it's been like driving a very expensive sport's car.

Okay, so the Monero didn't make it in the U.S. market. Under any other name, it would have been a hit, especially if the price had been competitive with the Mustang GT. Purists didn't like the exterior, non-muscle car styling, so the GTO died after '06. Those of us who own a modern GTO know the truth: this is one of the fastest sleeper cars ever built. The 400 HP V8 sets the Goat on its haunches with a toe-twitch. It handles superbly and the stiff feel of the steering wheel is a huge improvement over the numb and the mundane. Forget the Mustang GT. Forget the Charger RT or SRT8. None of those three muscle cars can touch the all- round performance, handling and power of the '06 GTO.

I bought my gto about a year ago, I passed the dealership and saw her parked out front so I stopped and decided to look a little closer. As I'm looking at her the salesperson comes out and asked me if I ever drove one. I said no, few minutes later he took a copy of my lic, gave me a dealer plate and tells me come back in like an hour or so. After about 20 mins of driving it I knew I was keeping her. I'm 6 ft3 I thought the car was very roomy for a coupe. And not to mention the power and torque, I missed having a v8. The next day I picked up my new car.

I love my 06 GTO. I currently also have a 67 GTO which I have owned over 30 years. I use the new one as a daily driver and find it to be extremely comfortable. My average gas mileage is about 15 which I don't think is too bad. It goes up a lot on the highway. I love the looks of this car. The people who were turned off because it didn't have the "retro" look lost out. I was thrilled by its looks. Who wants to spend this kind of money to have a car that looks like its 30 years old. The drivetrain is spectacular. Getting in the back seat is difficult but I have had myself and 3 others in the car on several occasions. I am leasing it and am planning on buying it at the end of the lease.

Absolutely love to drive this car. Punch the gas pedal and feel the smile on your face grow. The interior definitely was a pleasant surprise over other GM cars. The leg room in the back seats very surprising. 2 adults can sit comfortably in back. Getting into the backseats can be a bit of a pain but once back their its all good.

This car is great! It handles very well. The engine has a LOT of snap to it. Under the hood is a well organized engine compartment. The seats are the most comfortable seats I've sat in. The sound system is very good, but it would have been nice to have an auxiliary plug for an I-Pod. The craftsmanship on this car is outstanding! The 6 speed shifter had a longer throw than I liked, but after I installed a B&M Short shifter it performs extremely well. I love the "Spice Red" paint on mine. I wouldn't trade this car for anything!

Very nice ride which offers comfort and performance. Fun to drive and lots of second looks from car enthusiasts. Suspension is well tuned. Huge brakes are an advantage when you are thrusting 400 HP around. Style is good but could have been a little better when compared to some of the alternative vehicles but once you sit in this car and feel the thunder underneath and accessibility of controls you will be hooked. This car blows away my Z-28s and Formula Firebirds not to mention the Ford Mustangs encountered. Hope to see the GTO return. Early rumors indicate that it will be reproduced on the Australian Z body platform as will Camaro. GTO, fuel for the soul.

I have mainly great reviews for my GTO. I had strut issues at first with poor dealer support. I recently added the pedders x-treme pro suspension package, new clutch and twin 400 hp turbos. We are working out some bugs with the system but all I have to say at this point is I may need to add wings and a parachute. It's a BEAST.

This is a totally mean machine. Power beyond belief. My only complaint is the rear end alignment. It really wears tires out fast. After months in an out of the shop, and finally changing one part, it still is 15% out of aliment. When we finally got someone from gm to talk to us, their only reply was good luck. The tech who work on this problem said that gm has a bad problem. They just need to admit it, and take care of it.

I have had a many muscle cars in my years even some of the real 'bad boys'. I sold my Vette to buy it and love it. This car is amazing! Floor it and watch the tach rev up and when it changes gears the rear end twitches to the left..Raw HP !! What other cars on the market can you buy stock..that will do that. In the old days the cars screamed the tires after you installed a shift kit..06 GTO does it stock! It's an awesome car and rides great on long trips. No road noise and great looks. You don't see them everywhere like you do so many other cars. Sadly I just sold it because of two reasons..I need a 4 door and better gas mileage.

Unlike many who own a GTO, mine is a daily driver. My commute is 35 miles one way. In addition to that I take it out often on social occasions. Needless to say I spend a great amount of time in this vehicle. This is the best sports car you can buy for the price. The performance is immaculate, and a year and a half after purchase, it still surprises me. Another surprise was the quality of the interior. Leather all around, comfortable electronic seats, and a stylish dashboard. No part of the interior looks cheap or plastic- looking like many cars today. Gas mileage is low for current standards, but for the size of the engine, it can be preserved quite well if driven conservatively.

Bought this beast in Mar 06 n then I wrote a review in Dec 06. Since then, I've had a baby and because of the almost impossible feat to get into the backseat (esp holding a newborn) I was forced to sell it. I can't say enough about this car. I'm still unable to find the words to explain how awesome it is. Thick, solid, muscular, fast, sexy, sleek, smooth, low key but at the same time eye catching. Unbelievable

I purchased my GTO in August 2007. Coming from a supercharged 2000 Honda Accord EX V6, this car's performance really blows me away. I'm still afraid to go full throttle with the traction control turned off. My only complaints are that the interior lighting would have been much better if it were red like the rest of of current day Pontiacs, instead of the green that it is, and that they put wider wheels and tires in the rear. It's just too easy to break traction by depressing the throttle a bit. But for the price of the car, you just can't get as much power and comfort. I love it when people stop and stare at her. I don't know what critics are talking about when they say GTOs don't look good.

Bang for the dollar, best under 30k,A true sports car is RWD and with 400tq, you can kill 90% of the cars out there stock. I tell you why I bought this and not anything else. Also considered EVO/STI-good AWD but unless you live in snow, modify and then you ll get power. 350Z - very low tq and slow at topend , not comfortable Cobra-Fast car , about the same as GTO but interior is worse than a corolla. M3-best handling, but I am not going to the circuit, I want something comfortable and fast as a daily driver. Also the LS2 is very reliable stock and If you want 550Hp coming outof this beast ,slap a 5k supercharger. Love the whine. seats more comfortable than a C class mercedes,

Loved my 04 enough to buy an 06 both Blue with Blue interior. Absolutely love the car. The interior is my favorite. It's like a cockpit very well executed as well. As for "ugly" I like the smooth euro look.. It was not discontinued due to poor sales.The platform is was built on (The Holden Commodore Sedan) was slated for replacement in 2006 before the first GTO hit the US. It was going to be built for 3 years to fill the gap between the Trans AM and Soltice.. Which it did excellently.

I have owned many 60s and 70s muscle cars over the years, and bought 2 5.0 Mustangs new and this car is by far the fastest in stock trim. With only 1000 miles on the 06 GTO I went to the drag strip. It went 13.40s at 103.70 in the quarter mile, completely showroom stock. It gets almost 20 mpg avg and I drive 95 miles round trip to work daily. 7500 miles and not a problem.

My 2006 Pontiac GTO is my first new car. When I realized they were going to stop making then after 2006, I just had to have one. I ended up driving 6 hours to get the exact car I wanted. I drive the car everyday, and love every minute of it. I love having everyone comment on how much they like the car. This car is a steal at 30k. If you can find a new one buy it, if not get what you can find on the used market. The interior rivals many high end luxury cars, minus a few frills, and will run with just about any sports car. I just wish I could buy another new one when this one is paid off.

I have had this car for over a year and love driving it. Even with the problems I have had I would still buy the car again. The passenger door locks do not work occasionally, of course the dealership cannot duplicate. Additionally, there is a constant noise from the drivetrain. The dealership says it is functioning properly. I have owned an E36 M3 and this car almost competes, even considering the problems the dealership cannot fix. For the money, no better car in this market. I considered a low mileage E46 M3 and decided on the GTO due to the price differential.

I just got the GTO, after 3 Bonneville's, the last was an SSEi. My GTO is smaller and has a few less gadgets, which I actually like having less of. This is my first true muscle car and my first new car. It's going to be interesting to see if a stick shift will become a pain, but for now it's fun. By owning the Bonni’s I suspect bakes will become an issue but I'll offer a follow-up once I drive this puppy a little more. I plan to never ever sell this car. I'm hoping that because of the short life this latest genration of GTO will prove a good investment in 30 or so years...

I was actually waiting on the new Camaro, but have been keeping my eye on the "Goat" since '04. When they came out with the hood scoop and the 6 liter LS2, I could no longer wait. Extremely pleased with my decision. The GTO drives like a more expensive sports car, runs like scared cat and is priced like a family car. I've had no problems, even though, I've heard about the front struts going bad. What I really like about this car is, it is a real sleeper. I enjoy being on the road with a car that is virtually unmatched by other cars in its class. I would highly recommend a GTO to all my Dodge and Ford friends.

After spending 6 years in Italy, I was looking forward to buying a new Mustang. Boy, am I glad that I found a GTO still sitting on the new car lot in early 2007. This is an absolutely outstanding vehicle. The 6.0 and 6 speed tranny are a blast to use on a daily basis and they still get respectable mileage. I really can't believe that GM could not sell more of these. That's ok though, I got mine brand new and saved about $5000 off of the sticker price.

Kept driving past the dealer looking at it. Put off driving it for a couple of months, but after a test drive the car sold itself. The 2006 GTO is well styled, extremely solid, very comfortable, and handles smoothly. The interior is attractive, yet appropriate for a muscle car. I drive it daily, and the only negative aspect is fuel economy. I get 16.5 based on half highway, and half stop and go driving. As far as the small trunk goes, this car is built for driving, not utility.

Performance amazing, fit and finish perfect, interior appearance and quality excellent, understated external beauty, gas mileage very good for 400 HP and 400 lb/ft of torque, did need to upgrade stereo.

After a year and 12,000 miles in all weather conditions (Vermont), my red GTO still brings me smiles with every drive, a true pleasure. I use it mostly for a 44 mile commute over a mixture of twisty secondary roads, city streets, and low traffic interstate. A hoot to drive, the vehicle is well balanced with the tight crisp steering, firm handling and strong brakes expected on a 400 hp sports car. Abundant power can smoke the tires with ease when the traction nanny is off. At its selling price/performance point it is a bargain. The 6 speed manual transmission allows excellent fuel economy. I average 22 mpg commuting and 26+ on trips.

I traded my well loved 2004 Grand Prix Comp G for a red-on-red GTO and the smile has never left my face and my kids for that matter. This car reinforced my faith in Pontiac and the company's ability to build exciting cars, even if it's underpinnings are Australian. I think the car’s looks are great, the interior is well crafted especially for a 30K car and my car has been reliable. From a performance and driving perspective, I have not driven a better car. This is not luxury coupe loaded with all the "bells and whistles" but a back to basics muscle car with some refinement and I think this combination works. Turn the key, mash the pedal and steer; you’ll be amazed. I know I was.

I love driving this car. The pure power of that LS2 is amazing. I have been a pontiac man my whole life. I have owned a 66 GTO, 71 GTO, 74 GTO and a number of Trans Ams including a 2002 Firehawk. My 06 Goat has neck snapping power that is a joy to drive. The interior is the best of any pontiacs I've owned. I believe the exterior could be improved even though the sleeper look at times is beneficial. I hope they bring the goat back. I did have one problem which I learned about on other reviews. The problem with the struts. When I read there was problems I went out and checked my struts. Sure enough the strut on the right side had blowen. I took back to dealer and they fixed it.

I had test drove many different sporty cars before approaching the GTO. I tried out a STI, WRX, BMW 330i, Evo, a G35, 350z Then, after the advice of my father, I choose to test drive a GTO. That was all that was needed to seal the deal. While the G35 was probably the nicest out of the bunch, it still lacked any ummmppphhhhh. I got into the GTO and whoa, talk about making your neck sore. I wish more people would just test drive it. Realize it is NOT an American car and that it was built out of Holden in Australia who has a following of quality that is like the BMW and Hondas, just in a different country.

The Pontiac GTO is a tremendous value. Where else can yu get 400 hp, nimble handling, nicely trimmed interior with accouterments, and that big-block burble that anyone who owned a 60's big-block knows so well? And get it all for UNDER $30 Grand? It's quick, and it's fast. It's under the radar good looking, clean and smooth. It takes a supercar to out- muscle it. It's always fun to dust 100K BMW's and 80K Porsches, Benzes and whatever else comes along. The looks of amazement on their faces are worth way more than the price of this car. GM got the 2006 exactly right, then left it to wither and die on the vine. What A SHAME!

This is an unbelievable machine. It never ceases to amaze me with its power. The drive is just plain awesome. The 6-speed manual is a must. Just a few practicality cons, only because I use it for an everyday vehicle (which by the way I highly recommend). Access to the back seat is pretty close to impossible, in the rain the car is all over the place (which adds to the fun but takes away safety), and the trunk barely has room for groceries. But let me tell you I'd much rather have that engine than trunk space. It's such a monster. Better snatch 'em up while you can. Unless the decide to re-release at a later date, the 2006 is the last model.

I needed a sports car with back seats that actually had some performance - and that's one thing this car plenty of: performance. The vette V8 engine is the reason that you buy this car. Fit and finish is good (as good, if not better than the vette) but handling is, unfortunately, nothing to write home about. The suspension setup is a bit too soft and the tires are nowhere near grippy enough to keep traction. With 400 ponies, you need the traction! The stick shift is just awful and the stick shift is just OK (no overdrive ). Despite is many failings, I believe this is the best bang for the buck. Tighter handling than the gt-500 and almost as quick. A bargain!

Going from a 1991 Trans Am GTA to a 2006 GTO is like moving up to the penthouse suite. The GTO embodies raw power and a fun factor that is off the chart. Once you hit the gas in 3rd and 4th gear you had better be strapped in because the car takes off like a rocket; have some fun with a unsuspecting passenger. The ride is much different from other muscle cars, its nimble and handles the road like a mid size sedan. Thank you Pontiac for reviving a legitimate modern day muscle car.

This was the most fun I have ever had driving a car. The sensation when you push the throttle is mind blowing. The steering is crisp and responsive, you definitely feel in control even when your slinging around a corner. Inside is roomy for a sports car (it maybe hard to get in/out the rear but its comfortable once inside). All in all the only complaint I have is there is a defect in the ignition that causes it to seize (mine was fixed by the dealership in an afternoon).

I have owned 3 GTO's....1968,1969,and a 1970. I have owned the 70 since 1979. My son and I are rebuilding the 70 from the frame up. This will take several years and I need horsepower!! When I first saw the 2004 GTO, I was upset! It was missing all the markings of a GTO (single exhaust,no hood scoops,etc..etc.)When I saw the 2006,I test drove it. What a ride!! I love this car!! Please don't tell my 70. The build is perfect. No flaws,tight fit,comfortable, FAST and gas mileage!! I chose the automatic and it shifts perfectly and matches the engine's output no matter what the throttle position. I can't believe they stopped making it! The best way to describe the car is a 4 seat corvette!! GO GTO

I love my GTO. I've owned it since 1/06 w/o any problems, never been back to the dealer. I like the styling. This is 2006 not 1966. The 2006 GTO can compete with the German and Japanese imports with interior & exterior styling,quality and price. What the imports don't have is an LS2 400/400 engine. No comparison. I looked at Mustangs but interior was too plasticy and a little tight. I'm 6'4 200 and sit very compfortably in my GTO. I like having a unique car. Fords sells over 200,000 Mustangs/yr. Less than 15,000 GTO's /yr. Some people have complained about the GTO's styling but it's 2006, not 1966. Mustangs retro look is good. But don't take anything away from the GTOs modern look.

I was sold on this vehicle the first test drive. There was no lag in the response to the gas like in my CTS. I do not feel the roll as stated in some reviews, maybe I need to try the turns a little faster :) Most work days I spend 6-8 hours driving. This car is comfortable. The strong support of the seats makes you feel like the seat was handcrafted with you in mind. Fast, fun and made in America, what else can a girl say!

I have owned my new 2006 GTO for a week now and I can honestly say it is the the most fun car to drive that I've ever had. The acceleration is unbelievable for a four seat coupe. I am one of the few I guess that actually likes the exterior design. Let's face it, the original GTOs were not exactly ground breaking in exterior design, but who cared? You buy a GTO for one reason, performance!! Luckily, though, this car offers so much more! The interior is awesome and comfortable. The stereo is very nice. The programmable dash is great as well. The day after I bought mine I had performance mufflers installed and they just make this thing roar!!!! Do yourself a favor, get a GTO!!!!!!

The GTO is an excellent example of a classic muscle car (classic being mid- sixties rather than early 70's)...conservative ("sleeper" rather than "boy racer") exterior styling, jaw dropping power, and almost European handling characteristics. The ride is comfortable and compliant with relatively little body lean while having fun.

I have had my 2006 GTO for all of two days now. I took the day off work to just drive it around. I had a blast with it and plan on having many more days just like today. I recently sold a 1971 Oldsmobile 442 with a slightly built Olds 455. I restored the car and it was my baby. When I found myself in the market for a new car I needed one with power. I found out the Challenger if coming out with a 5.7L and was turned off by the thought of the price for the upgrade when it becomes available. I tested the Mustang GT and the GTO and immediately knew the GTO was the better of the two. Considering where the market is going, the exterior styling could be better, but I still love the looks.

Prior to owning my 2005 GTO I owned an 04 model, until a jackass in a pickup truck crossed the center line of the road and hit me head on. The fact that I walked away with only minor injuries is a testamonial to the quality of the car and the integrity of the design. The styling doesn't meet with the approval of some people, but I find it very appealing. The GTO gets plenty of respect at the stoplight, especially from Mustang drivers who know better !!!

So far so good. No real problems. A couple of defects upon purchase. But nothing crazy or unable to be repaired by myself. 4500 miles and nothing has changed. I know its not a lot of miles. But I haven't had it long enought to foget those problems i might have had in the beginning.. which happen to be none in this case. the styling is the styling.. think of it what you will. I think its very euro GT. Gets great mileage for the engine class, but thats not really an excuse for running an average of 20 mpg back and forth to work.

I purchased this car new on 6-30, noticed it leaking on 7-1. Both front struts blown. Cannot drive car and still waiting on parts as of 8-8. Fluid leaked onto front brake pads and rotors making dangerous to drive. GM knew this was a problem with all 06's and continues to sell them without fixing this first. Pontiac has been a nightmare to deal with. Refuses to extend warranty to cover time I've been without car. Do a search for 06 gto leaking struts and read other's stories. Terrible customer service.

I am soured today because my GTO has 730 miles on it and the left front has blown out for the second time. Each time strut oil is flung all over the place, melting the undercoating creating a goo that is difficult to cleanup. Look on www.nhtsa.dot.gov to witness the 55+ entries for this problem alone. Pontiac also doesn't appear to be too concerned about this problem as well. I get tons of lip service from their customer support but overall it is what we all know and expect as GM. I am very saddened by this as I want GM the biggest and baddest. Well... to my chagrin the latter is true. My wife’s Odyssey certainly looks like the better of the two purchases.

2 weeks from purchase my daughter drove the car to later find that she couldn't drive the car because it was making a very loud noise on the passenger side. of course we scream and question if she did something to the car. of course not . We found that the strut was defective we figure ok is a defective strut no big deal. The car started making the same noise on the left over the weekend of course is going in tomorrow for another strut I told the dealer to check the other 3 struts but they said they don't have anyting from the manufacture for a recall. a little frustration having a new car

I would rate it 10 in everything except gas milage (of course), I drive it 70 miles a day and its a pleasure. Has a great engine rumble to it. Stereo is pretty good, I do miss a compass and outside temp (loking to buy aftermarket rear view mirror that has it built in). To sum it all up, this car makes driving what it should be FUN! Plus there are loads of aftermarket goodies to buy. Go get one a have the next american classic. Sorry to see Pontiac saying goodbye to this rocket.

This has to be my favorite car ever. I do not know how many I have owned but the list includes Mustang GT's, Corvettes, Mercedes 560 SL's, Thunderbirds, etc. This is the ultimate driving machine so far. Outperforms everything else and is comfortable for my 6'3", 275 pound body. I do feel sorry for people that would have to ride in the back seat, but this vehicle was not purchased for them. I have had some initial problems that I believe are attributable to transit involving the front end and strut failure. Only 3000 miles so far so reliability would be slanted heavily by these problems if not properly viewed. Overall, this car is great and has me looking for the next generation.

I have had this car for 2 weeks now, and I can't wipe the smile off my face every time I sit in the driver's seat. Why more people haven't discovered this car I don't know, but better for me because it's that much more unique. Has undescribable power from the Corvette LS2 V8, great balanced handling, most comfortable seats in any car I have ever owned, good size back seat (better than a mustang), great interior design. GM finally got this car right for 2006 and now they aren't making them anymore. If you are thinking about buying one, just go test drive it. This is your last chance because they stopped making them last month. No wonder this car is an icon in Australia!

Just bought mine a few weeks ago. The engine is awesome, with a smooth, broad power band that lets you just drive around everyone else without a fuss. If you really open it up then hang on, because the GTO is FAST. The seats are top rate, the interior is very nice with excellent fit and finish. To me the suspension is a good balance of performance and ride comfort. The exterior is a bit bland, the trunk is small and the back seats are hard to get into, but none of that matters to me. Good hwy gas mileage, but uses fuel at a phenomenal rate if you romp on it around town. The GTO makes a very comfortable daily driver thats a blast to drive if you are into raw power.

Whether driving in the city, on the highway, or on rural roads, you know you're going to have a smooth ride. Waiting at the line of a red light always makes you feel uneasy with all the looks you'll get-ranging from a thumbs up, or another hand gesture. It was raining heavily one day, and I was driving home. Upon turning a 90 degree turn to get on the on ramp of I- 5, the car started to lose traction. Luckily the TC kicked in, and stopped my wheels from spinning giving me the ability to turn out from nearly smacking into a barrier. The car has been great for getting me to school, and the Dragstrip uptown. Only complaints from passengers comes from the 5th man-only 3 passanger seats+driver

It's about fluidity, and the new GTO has it nailed. It's fast, yet not rambunctious and noisy like the dodge "hemi" junk, and it rides very nice, it is extremely reliable due to utilizing the time-tested small block chevy. Its just an awesome car anyway you look at it, the price is excellent for what you get too.

Buy for POWER and driveability

After reading some of the other reviews, other purchasers seem to want a luxury car with high performance and 30 MPG. NOT !! The now departing 2006 GTO will be a collector's car soon enough, I'd highly recommend begging, borrowing, or stealing the $$ to buy one. The dealer I bought from in Arizona had TEN GTOs for sale - I had the pick of the litter. Sold at INVOICE $$, this dealer simply wanted to unload his inventory...advantage ME. NO VEHICLE currently made will give you the wide swath of luxury and performance this car will. Just drive one. 400 HP, great driving position and non-descript exterior will keep the idiots wondering what the hell just flew past. BUY ONE.

The GTO is fun and exiting to drive especially taking turns with out using breaks and just downshifting. This car is excellent for pontiac fans who want a big v-8 with a back seat. They will also know that it will knock off the competition with the charger and the corvette.

I love it

Was at the dealership with a friend and was talked into test driving an 06 GTO I really wasn't planning on purchasing one but wow!!!!2 hours later I was home with a brand spanking new Brazen Orange GTO This car is awesome, much faster than the 05 Mustang I just sold, it's hard to believe its only 100 hp more because it seriously feels like twice the power and the interior is way better So far the car has been perfect in every way

06 GTO best one ever

I have owned 6 GTOs over the years (1965-1971) and I was sceptical when I first drove the 2006 version but after only a short distance I could tell that this car was NOT a 60's musclecar it was better...more power and torque better brakes and superior handling The build quality of this GTO is superb and the interior is the nicest I have seen in all the cars I test drove (Mustang GT ,Mazda RX8, Dodge Charger) I seriously doubt you could get a better car in the 30K range with its 400hp,6 spd trans and independent rear This car is a pure blast to drive and not every boyracer in town has one

Most bang for the buck - AWESOME

Recently purchased a Red 2006 GTO. This car is outstanding considering the price range. I can stay up with anyone on the road, including high priced Euro sports cars. Very fun to drive. Handles well, very rigid and well build, no sway whatsover. Test drove a Dodge Charger prior to purchase, and there was no comparison. I have owned and driven many Ford Mustangs, and other very fast vehicles, the GTO demolishes all of them. The one negative would be... the exterior could use a bit more styling and not look so much like a typical Pontiac. Although you can look at like this, it blends in with traffic, not to fancy looking, and it is a true SLEEPER. Beautiful interior!!!

What Americans need to know is that the GTO was originally created by Holden (Australia) for Australian drivers tastes, in terms of design. The clean low lines (minus that useless rear wing is what aussies want in a big V8 RWD coupe. Pontiac never had any design input when the car was designed. It is Pontiac marketing people that got it wrong by trying to relive the Good'ol days, not the original designers that got it right! Pontiac insisted on smaller and uglier wheels, the pontiac grill and bonnet nostrils, the add on rear wing and the lack of climate control, all to fit U.S taste and budget contraints. What american buyers must face is that they are buying a Monaro, badged as GTO

Definitely could be better. The GTO name did not bring out the best in this car, it is more of a tag glued on. Performance is not the best, the exterior has that "Grand Am" feel. On the plus side, the fuel economy is pretty good, though it could be better for the lack of performance.

The outside of the GTO is UGLY! It is to plain. If you see one going down the road no one turns their head and say ooo there is a GTO because the are not that recognizeable. They look to much like a Mazda 6, or and other sport sudan. Unlike the new Dodge Charger or Ford Mustang everyone goes ooo look at that. It is because they are very distinctive. There are no other cars that look like them. On a good note the interior and performance are perfect.

The way the car drives even at slow speeds it great. Most people have no idea what it is at first then the original GTO folks all of a sudden do not care for it.. The aussies did a fine job on the car only gripe is going from a z28 to GTO is the seat does not go low enough but i am fine with it now. The more new style muscle cars the big 3 build the better//

I bought the '06, but I wanted one without those ridiculous "nostrils" in the hood. GM says no. Straight line fun all day and all night, gotta love that. I can only assume other reveiwers praising handling have never driven a car that handles. My wife's VW GTI runs rings around this on any corner and my old Subaru STI would embarass it on any road circuit. I love the noise, I love the power, but I'll be spending a lot of money upgrading the suspension using GM Europe parts, adding sat nav and upgrading the stereo. I like the simple styling and, once I get my 2004 hood (no fake nostrils), I think this will be the finest looking coupe on the road.

At 400 H.P. and 400 ft/lb torque and around town mileage with my 6 speed at just over 20 mpg, what else could you want? It is great fun to drive ... it is fast with crisp handling and very effective braking. The 200 watt Blaupunkt stereo/CD with surround sound is almost as enjoyable as just driving around with the windows open just listening to the motor hum ... the fit and finish of the interior rivals any of my buddies BMW's and the 6 way power adjustable leather seats are very comfortable ... which is excellent ... especially when you consider the GTO is a reborn MUSCLE CAR built for speed and a feel for the road!

This car is simply amazing. 400 hp and for 30k. There simply is not a vehicle that can come as close. My salesmen said that the car is made in Australia and I am starting to wish I lived in the land down under. The car purrs at idle and growls as you go through the gears. The interior is something you would never expect from a Domestic car. Absolutely perfect car.

This can only get better and maybe GM will keep it around. There are so many things that can be offered to maintain the legend, 'cause the new one is truly worthy of the name.

The body looks similar to other pontiacs, but still remains unique. Not only is it the strongest stock street car, excluding lambo's and what not, but it turns heads too. To make it look a little more hot, i bought front to tail custom work. New front kit, hood, rims,tires, roof,side kit, doors,tint, spoiler, rear kit, exhaust, cold air intake, a chip, QTEC, dyno, tranny, clutch, suspension.... yeah it was plenty of cash and voided the warranty, but who gives when you got a car this hot.

I was shopping around most of May for Mazda RX-8s, BMW 3 series, Mustang GT's, Infiniti G35's, Nissan 350Zs and Subaru STi's. I never gave the GTO a thought. I just wasn't interested. That's until one day a salesperson convinced me to take a look and drive the GTO. I humored him and gave it a good look over and a drive and it just about changed my mind on the spot. Do a comparison, the GTO gives you everything these other cars have and more in some cases for the cheapest insurance and cost! You'll quickly grow on the bland exterior and start to see it as a clean, sharp design. Pic's dont do justice. Go take an '06 out even if you aren't interested, you'll likely change your mind like I did.

Everybody should have one!

I have owned a 350Z, Acura, and RX-8. When I traded in my mazda for this car I was a little hesitant, but I am glad that I did. Aside from the power, the car is very confortable and roomy. I feel as though I am driving a cadillac the ride is so smooth. Many have said that the car's looks don't appeal to them, well it looks much better from behind the wheel. I am lucky enough to have gotten a 6-speed and it has been a pleasure. Oh, and by the way it has a 6.0 liter V-8. Enough said. If you are in the market for a practical rocket, this is the way to go.

GTO is awesome

If you love HP, you will love this car. It left my AMG55 in the dust!!! My friend just bought a new STI.. NO CONTEST!!! This cars quality and workmanship is one to beat for the price. Sure it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that some luxury cars do, but for the price I am saving on the sticker I can have those things installed, customized, and still beat them on the street and the price. I LOVE THIS CAR!! AND I LOVE DRIVING IT!! IT gets looks wherever I go.. Probably because they hear me coming!!!

Just got an '05 cyclone grey w/ 6 speed- -it rocks! I've had Mustang GTs, a Z- 28, Grand National and other "enthusiast" cars, none are even close to a GTO in performance, comfort and overall enjoyment. Apologies are in order to the motorists I've no doubt scared w/ the outrageous passing power and noise, but that's about the only downside I've seen yet. It is also cool how much respect this car gets, lots of looks and compliments and people asking what 400hp feels like. Traction control and abs allowed for a real fun ride recently in the rain, which was a big suprise recalling other muscle cars complete inability on the wet. Gas mileage well over 20 on a recent tank w/ mostly hiway miles.

I ordered the 2005 GTO with all of the features seen on the new 2006 GTO. In addition I ordered the 18 inch factory wheels and tires. The car arrived in July 2005. I is the best handling most powerfull car that I have ever owned. I would strongly suggest that it is the most exciting car that one could purchase for the money. The interior is excellantly styled and comfortable. The seating is satisfactory for four adults.

Disregard what you hear about the new goat not being "retro" enough and buy one before gm kills it off. I had a 64 gto as a teenager and again about 15 years ago. I have waited a long time for pontiac to do it again and the wait was worth it. The performance and the quality are second to none. I changed the front grilles and spolier to the sport appearance package items. Also bought three sets of the "gto" letters from the '04 trunklid and applied one set on the right rear decklid and two sets on the rear quarter panels, just like the goats of the 60s. Makes a big difference in capuring the gto look. I bought this as a "keeper" to tuck away and drive on sunny days.
