    The front looks a little odd, but overall good. I like the interior.

    I might be retarded, But what do you mean by 56k warning? Do you mean the vehicle is approaching 56k? I thought it would sell for mid 20's

    It's a warning for guys with 56K (or lower) speed internet connections. The pics might take a while to load for them.

    This thing doesn't hold a candle to the Grand Prix GXP.

    It's AWD, so that's nice. The raw 0-60 and quarter numbers are less than impressive if I remember correctly. Those rims are atrocious. I like the front, and loathe all front mounted license plates and plate brackets.
    "I cannot wait for the new fad to come along, one that doesn't involve making respectable looking cars look as though they were parked nearby when the plastic factory exploded."

    Paint it black and it will look much better. I love the two-tone interior and the black lacquer looking center stack.

    I'm glad I didn't set sail on your boat. The Mazda is better inside and out. Power is debatable.

    Mazda has AWD. Pontiac does not. Mazda has stick. Pontiac does not.

    That's your opinion. The grimmlin-look of the front and the piano-colored interior turn me off. Plus, I would take a V8 over this any day... I wonder how they compare in fuel economy?

    It all depends on personal taste obviously! I guess I wouldn't compare there cars with each other, 2 totally different beasts if u ask me. But did you ask....no, so I'll shut up now

    Vintalage, I think the V8 speaks for itself

    I'll pass on the I4, I already have a lawn mower.

    Re: Mazdaspeed 6 (56K warning)

    Comparing the Mazdaspeed6 with the GP GXP is not exactly right due to the very different drivetrains these to cars have. However . . .

    Mazdaspeed6
    Price: $27,995
    Turbocharged 2.3 DOHC 16 vlave inline 4
    274 HP @ 5500 RPM / 280 lb-ft @ 3000 RPM
    6 speeds manual
    AWD

    Grand Prix GXP
    Price: $29,335
    5.3L 5300 V8 SFI
    303 HP @ 5600 RPM / 323 lb-ft @ 4400 RPM
    4 speeds auto
    FWD

    So, for $ 1,340 more you get a V-8 with extra 29 HP and 43 more lb-ft @ considerable more RPMs. But more importantly don't get AWD and 6-speeds Manual transmission. You have to consider looks, the GP is simply one of the ugliest cars in America if not the ugliest now that the Aztek is no more. The Mazdaspeed6 on the other hand is simply gorgeous.

    Advantage: Mazdaspeed6 ZOOM-ZOOM
