    They are in the teens...thats a lot of power for say...18k.

    What are the cons of this car? My cousing leased one in 06, and it was a manual. I had my way with it a couple times, but I wanna hear from some owners who actually drive the car everyday.

    Now, I know the gas tank is behind the backseat. Doesn't this render having a decent sounding system in the car impossible?

    How does it handle?

    No, but if you want to put anything in the tiny trunk, you can forget subwoofer boxes. But if you're not 16, this shouldn't be a problem.

    It handles pretty well for a 3900lb car.

    I Love my GTO, my 2nd favorite car ive owned yet.


    only shitty part about the entire car is the tiny fucking trunk (due to the gas tank taking up a majority of it) but beyond that its fantastic, fun, quick, comfortable, and honestly a great buy!

    Quite well, it does roll if you are driving aggressively through mountain twisties. As CJPA can attest to. :noes:

    I'd been looking at a new Passat (used), but why but some heavy, slow ass 4-cyl, when I can get the goat for the same price. It makes no sense to me. The RX8 was on the list too, but got wrote off due to reliability. :o
