#406 of 2056 Got my $$ back, lemon lawed 2005
May 03, 2005 (6:56 am)
My 2005 Mustang was Lemon Lawed. Got all my $$ back. Fuel Tank and Shaker radio was fixed. Window problems fixed, Electrical problems and rattles that couldn't be fixed on 5 tries. Still there. Very nice car, but enough was enough. It was in the dealer more then I had it. Apparently I'm not the only one based on some of the comments I have read on the Mustang Problems and solutions board. I should have learned and listened and NOT bought a first year car. I'm sure hope by 2006 they willl have this fixed. My Mustang looked real good on the back of the flatbed truck though. Going down to Pontiac tonight. GTO has been our since 2002 as Holden so I'm sure they got the bugs worked out, I hope. Still not crazy on the lack of styling, but not ugly. I want to see how it drives. Maybe buying it.

GM has sold alot of Holden Monaros in the last 9 years so parts won't be problem. One of the benefits of buying an existing established design. Nice try though.

HEY,Just as Jack Nicholson said,YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!I'd take a 300c srt-8 even over a GTO.Don't get me wrong,I love the GTO----THE OLD ONES,Not the cavalier like new ones, with the vette engine in them!!!! Cheap Lutz,very cheap!!!!

Hey,The best thing that could happen to the new gto is that it DOES need some hard to get parts like Body Parts.Heck ,if ya collect enough of them,and put them all together,you might be able to melt them down and put together a nice designed gto ,of a retro classic gto,not the new cavalier one that CLUTZ seems to have designed over at GM!!!

"I'd take a 300c srt-8 even over a GTO"
300c srt-8 available with a stick shift? Is the handling, braking, steering feel up to the GTO? What Mustang-like qualities does the srt-8 have that the GTO doesn't? Are you saying that if you were cross-shopping the Mustang and the 300c, that you wouldn't even consider the GTO based on.........? Styling alone?

Get it straight,its not a gto,its a cavalier with a vette engine,which by the way,is the only good lookin' thing on the whole vehicle----THE ENGINE---WAY TO GO CORVETTE, at least its not been totally put out of its misery yet---well,that's until you start driving it though!!!!!

It's a Holden Monaro from GM's Austrailian Holden Division, not a Cavalier, that was rebadged as a GTO for our US Market. This car was NOT designed by Lutz. This car can be equipped with the Corvette engine in Austrailia as well. It's also sold as the Chevy Lumina SS in Saudi Arabie as well. Get it straight!
Theoretically the 1964 GTO wasn't a REAL GTO either, it was a rebadged Lemans with more powerfull engine, badging, etc.
Give it a rest.

Let's take main rants about GM to the News & Views board where we have a number of GM and Lutz discussions.
This discussion is about the new Mustang and the new GTO.
