2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Reviews – Consumer Car Reviews


Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor

Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix?

I like the size of the car. It looks big. I park it next to my neighbors Cadillac and it#39;s nearly as long. I love the shape of the GP. When they first came out in 04 I didn#39;t like it at all but over time the look has grown on me so much that I#39;ve been wanting one of these for years.

I bought an 06 used with a little over 100,000 miles on it. I love how wide the doors open up.

I like that the stereo automatically turns up volume when you speed up and turns down when you slow down. It#39;s a wonderful feature. The seats are comfortable. My tailbone never hurts on long trips.

Which is always nice.

I like how powerful the engine feels. I love how the car shifts. It drives like a dream. It covers many highway miles quickly! On the open road the car feels right at home.

It wants to accelerate and pass other cars! Very athletic vehicle. It takes turns nicely. Always a hunkered down, solid feel to the car. Corners very well.

Big trunk. Fold down rear seats. Love the stereo controls on steering wheel. Like the trunk open option on power locks/windows area. Big side mirrors. Strong strong brakes.

Even without antilock to assist the brakes really stop this car in its tracks! Roomy interior. Interior is pleasant for driver and passenger.

A friend of mine said he thought the interior looked ultra sleek. It does.

It#39;s an impressive car even amongst the newer cars out now. The onboard digital computer is good. Not over fancy mind you, but conveys basic information clearly. Not as impressive as the new touch screen systems in place on the new cars now. But it#39;s a practical feature.

Love the red interior lights. Like how when you turn the car on all the needles in the instrument read outs flip to maximum. It#39;s the only time the car#39;s speedometer gets to the 140 mph mark!

It#39;s fun. Engine sounds throaty and strong yet quiet when idling.

Like how my elbow can rest on window sill or the arm holder. I like the A/C. I like the heater. Rear defrost works fast. Love the built in cup holders in front and rear.

Like the two power ports for phone and GPS. Love the alloy wheels. Very sporty. Really love the shape of the long hood. Love the gas mileage. Great for commuting.

Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix?

Hate the emergency brake on the floor. Reminds me that this is a cousin of a Buick. I feel like an old man because of this.

I love how the interior looks but hate the quality of it. The center armrest squeaks and rattles like it#39;s going to fall apart. Very annoying. My drivers seat moves around a little.

Like a very large person drove car before I did. Annoying.

Some interior touches are nice, however, like the actual aluminum metal on the steering wheel. Feels high quality.

Most of the dashboard is of nice quality as are door panels. There is just this smattering of cheap plastic in odd places. One piece of dashboard so strong and high quality then another so cheap. I like the knobs on the stereo and environmental controls.

Feel like quality pieces. The switches for doors and locks feel alright. Just strange cost cutting thrown in at weird places. I think the car will hold up well, just don#39;t care for cheap parts.

I also don#39;t like the plastic used for the headlamps. I#39;ve known for years that all automakers including Toyota and Honda and Nissan have all been using cheaper plastic for things like headlamps. Which is why cars headlamps get yellow after a few short years. I wish automakers would stop with the cheap headlamp plastic covers! It makes cars look much older too soon!

Drives me crazy. Anyway, this car has some of that yellow plastic on the headlamps. Tacky.

I also wish the car came with traction control standard and antilock standard.

If you shop for a used Pontiac Grand Prix, these are things to look for. They make a big difference. I miss those features! No Auxillary port for mp3 player or phone on stereo. No biggie I just bought a transceiver that plugs in powerport.

But still, these days cars should have this standard. Only one key hole for the entire car. No key hole for trunk. Annoying if my key fob breaks.

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Review:

Awesome used car to buy. Great for single person or a family. These cars are known to go well past 200,000 miles. I#39;ve seen them for sale with 250,000 miles on them.

So don#39;t be afraid of high mileage.
