May 13, 2005 (7:27 am)
how do you check the coolant level on the 2005 GTO....reservoir tank is under a shroud...has a dipstick???what level cold/hot...what coolant should i use....car manual says nothing...thanks..
p.s. yes saw the new "2006",,,,,,,,how do i get "darkened tailghts"" or should i just put black tint on my 2005....yeah...that will make it a 2006...................boy Pontiac is really making big changes and investments in the GTO.....it is only matter of time before it is "by by american pie"...
hope they don't do to GM WORKERS what they did to AIRLINE COMPANY employees.....pay cuts/health benefit cuts/ and PENSION cuts
soon parts will start falling of planes....hope i don't need service on my PONTIAC....NOBODY WILL AROUND...

Brazen Orange could be a cool color.

4th gear or D on the automatic does engage as early as 30mph. 4th gear at 30mph is only about 1000rpm if that. Not much faster then idling. Hoping for better gas mileage now. Most cars it usually doesn't work until about 40-45mph.

Can anybody give me the address of the site where you can find out which GTOs are at which dealers? thanks

I use 93 octane in my 2005 Automatic tranny GTO.

Broke down and got a black on black, automatic, 05 yesterday.
Had exactly 4 miles on it.
Pick it up tomorrow - they need to clean it up (the union guy's don't work weekends).
Declined on the clear coat finish (another $700) - would like to hear what others do in terms of maintaining the finish. Mine will be in the garage except on weekends - not going to use it for commuting.
So what's the best wax & other info/tips on keeping it looking good?
