Are these good cars? They have big engines in them and have a lot of horse power but are they reliable?

They have a big powerful engine, but it's essentially the same as the Motors from the 50's. It'll run for 300k miles if you take car of it.

Excellent car. Definitely will be more reliable than many other cars on the market.

Yeah, i fear the same thing. The GTO didnt have a chance from the get go. Look back in the late 60's, the GTO was one of if not THE sickest, the most aggresive looking muscle car you could find. All those cars it was beating in looks now, have maintained that aggressive sport and muscle look, when Pontiac came out with this as a concept back in the early 2000's, idk what they were thinking.

It just was not aggresive looking or muscular enough to survive rolling with the big boys again, It still held true to its name by having one of the largest engines in its class though :cool: lol.

I'm sure if they designed it to have some same looks as the classic gto's, then it wouldve done better. sad sight to see it end production.

I know quite a few people in my area that have them and love them! Great cars, lots of power from the factory, and is very reliable.

But, I'd still own one.

I'd find a way to make it a bit more unique! :wink:

Guess no one has heard.....they have a major factory issue since new. The rear suspension was poorly built and it would destroy the inside of the rear tires within a few hundred miles if not sooner. We saw a few here straight from the dealer as our customers that bought them wanted to look under and get ideas for mods......thats when we noticed the problem. The dealers kept replacing tires rather than fix the problem.

After a few sets and calls to GM higher ups, they supposedly sent a couple of GM engineers to see what the big deal was about. GM ended up purchasing some adjustable rear control arms to fix the problem. Other than that, its a bad ass car, too bad it looks like a honda.
