RichM4, they NEVER had to rebate the 1997 GP back in 1997, sold like hotcakes with sales 50% better then 1996, I remember having to wait for my 1997 GTP and actually order it, there were mostly just SE's on the lot, GT and GTP were hard to find in august 1996
the Pontiac dealer I was at today for the HUD repair, said the new 2004's are not selling that well as he had hoped with the minor redesign. The COMP G editions are still sitting there.. knowone is buying them, too much $$. The 2003's he had left were flying out of there with the $4k rebates... Esp the remaining '03 GTP's. very good bang for the buck !
Also seems like Maxima sales are so-so as well..
part of the problem is the GTP comp G loaded is nearly $31k MSRP, Knowone is going to pay that much for a grand prix without rebating. You can get a BASE Infiniti/Acura/Lexus for that price range.

Oldsman01, Yeah the 1995 Aurora was unique in that it had the SAME 4yr 50k warranty as the Caddy's, not the std 3yr 36k. You got alot for $32k in 1995, on paper a complete winner, handling and interior room was the only negatives I had. My W body had nearly the same interior and trunk room. Aurora was never the seller Olds hoped it would be. Sales doubled when they offered the V6 std in 2001 re-design, but the V6 kind of said, gee I wanted an Aurora but really couldn't afford one and of corse increased sales
The riviera/Aurora were the same chassis in 1995, and YES the Riviera 3.8L V6 with 240hp was faster 0-60 and 1/4 mile then the 4.0L V8 250hp Aurora, go figure?? I wanted the Riviera, and they should have had the 4.0 too.

If you have 3 kids then you need a van/suv, with 1 or 2 a car is fine. I have many friends now just having kids, where they are running out to buy these big gas guzzling SUV's for one kid?? Ok... to each their own.

Having had 2 doors and 4 doors in the past, I will stick with the 4 doors. Life is easier for me that way. Coupes will maybe return to our garage in 12-15 years.

With over $2000 in rebates and all those additonal features, the 2004 sounds like "more bang for the buck" to me!!
