You are in the Pontiac Grand Prix
What is this discussion about?
Pontiac Grand Prix, Sedan
#3612 of 4457 Probably Wouln't Have Taken a Genius

to figure this out, I just couldn't devote my full attention to it before now.
OK, as I said yesterday, to get the background info on what the ratings mean, click on the blue sub-headings underneath the column titles. Print that out, if you care to. Go to the '03 and '04 GP (requires that you pull up the table 2 times) and click on 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix, on the left side, to the left of the "stars", and then on the 2004 Grand Prix (back to the home page to get the '04 table) to get a DETAILED summary of the vehicle crashed.
I've mentioned this discussion in the Malibu and Maxx discussions, so this is for their benefit to.
LOTS of info. Will take time to digest.

Oh my gosh! Crashing in the 04 GP would most certainly be fatal, even if I just hit a shopping cart in the parking lot. I better trade it in immediately.....

mrrogers, congratulations on the new GP. We love our GT2 and I'm sure you will like your car for the long haul. We have had no issues at all with our car and feel good about the purchase. GM has a winner with this car in spite of a few little niggles like the back seat. Hopefully over time they will be addressed. Luckily, I don't care about the back seat so it's not an issue for me anyway.

Your death, not mine. I really like the new GP, but it's like the Corvair, of many years gone by, unsafe at any speed.
Oh well. Later.

Oh yes - I can see Ralph Nader coming out and protesting the GP because it is so unsafe. Get real.

I don't have to get "real". I just won't buy one. Simple as that.

GP: Great Product, I had a bad experience during a test drive last year and ended up bypassing the GP for a Taurus. I use rentals quite often recently using a GP GT1, Camry, and Malibu the GP was far superior to any of those products and also far superior to my current Taurus. If I had to purchase a car today I certainly would not hesitate on a 04 GP.
#3620 of 4457 GT1 vs GT2

Any difference in the handleing/steering ect between the GT1 and GT2. We have fantastic deals on a GT1 here in Canada and I was wondering if I really needed to buy the 2 over the 1?
#3621 of 4457 Alan34 - Handling Question

I think the answer is no, but go here:
Then click on "Handling" on the left side. You will see a chart of the differences between models.
This is a site used for training Pontiac dealer personnel, but there is a lot of things that interested me there.
