    ...and based off of what I know of it now, I'd have a hard time taking a new Maxima over one. But I haven't had a really close look at either car.

    Pontiac did GOOD on this one. Even the interior looks nice... not so over-the-top like the new Maxima.

    Drive a 6spd SE with navigation.

    Your mind will be changed.

    I have to admit.. this is the first Pontiac in a while that I actually like. It does feel like a boat compared to my car but that's what a 1000+ lbs heavier car is going to feel like. The HUD is sweet, and once you're used to being in it, it is a very sweet car.

    Seems like the performance is pretty decent. I don't care for the looks though. That black one is the best one I've seen so far.

    I love the black, but I'm still getting a 04 F150 instead. :bigthumb:

    I saw a monochrome dark shadow grey 04 FX4 yesterday. It is such an awesome looking truck. Better than in pictures.

    At least it will hold a gear and not shift for you.

    It's all in the details. The Grand Prix is still a GM.

    True. I suppose if I had one I'd rather have the paddles than the auto.

    The 98-03 Grand Prix body style didn't have body cladding.

    yup yup.
     
  24. This I know. Remember, I own a GTP.

    We have to fight off cladding comments like focus owners have to fight off recall jokes.
