Pontiac Grand Prix GXP 2006

    Did anyone see the show on SpeedTV? I saw it on sunday. It was mostly about the GTO but they did show the GXP for about 5 minutes. The test driver seemed impressed considering it was a front wheel drive car. Interestingly enough the GXP had no more body roll than the GTO when speeding through corners at the track. They compared it to the 330, Maxima and G35 automatic and the GXP beat the Maxima in every category and the other two in some categories.

    Just bought a greystone on Monday. I had $416 on my GM Card. When the dealer called it in, GM Card bumped the amount up to $916 for me.

    Loving the car so far.

    Do you know why the GM card bumped your amount up to $916 if you only had $416? Seems odd they would add even more to your credit card rebate, but I wouldn't mind any.!

    For those who have been waiting for the GXP review Rayainsw mentioned a couple weeks ago the dates were wrong. In a post between Ray and Editor_Karl, Karl apologizes for the incorrect date. They will receive the GXP on July 6.

    There is a $500 bonus added to GM cards on the Grand Prix. With my GM card bonus and rebates I got my GXP for $25.6K. The sticker was $33K. That was last month before the employee discount promo.
  • mitsurobmitsurob Posts: 38
    That makes sense. Seems like each month GM has a different promotion. In the end it sounds like you can end up with the same bottom line depending on how they package all their promos.
    Just wonder what promotion they will have in July or even August. I was really wanting to wait closer to August to buy something...but the current offers seem to be a good deal. Does anyone have any insider info on what promos might be like for July or August?? Would be great if they continued the current employee discounts till then.

    We have confirmed info that the remote start SHOULD turn on the AC. GM knows about this, and a reprogram of the PCM should fix the situation. I haven't heard when it will be ready or how everyone will be notified.

    GM Card sent out Bonus offers a while back - $1000 on selected models and $500 off others - expires end of June. The GP has a $500 GM Card points bonus.
    I'm going to look at a Dark Cherry w/Ebony leather tomorrow. (This dealer sold the Dk Cherry one I saw last weekend) It's loaded except for the Navigation system. (I could do w/o the sunroof, but... Its got XM + 6 CD changer and I love both.)

    MSRP $33395; GMS after rebates of $27637 - then I can use $2000 off my card points plus $500 bonus and they said they will give me what I asked on trade in for my 2002 GA.
    Will update later on if I go for it or not. ;)

    I heard (in other 2004-05 Grand Prix models) that the rear seat lacked sufficient padding and was not roomy. Does the GXP's rear seat have more padding than the other '04-'05 models? I presume the rear seat isn't roomier than the other '04 and '05s though. True?
  • ocmike3ocmike3 Posts: 232
    no, same as other GP's - but with the leather option the rear seats get the suede inserts also.

    Thanks for the definitive answer; I'm still waiting for a reply from GM. I guess it'll be probably be winter before they can get the fix out.

    Thanks, so we just don't get the "FULL COLD" on RVS. Do you know of the email address to bother them some more and get them in gear or should we just wait?

    Test Drive - Oh Boy! Resistance was futile.
    Dark Cherry Metallic
    Leather w/inserts & Heated seats - Ebony/Dk Pewter
    Premium Audio w/ 6 CD Changer - Monsoon System
    Curtain Side Impact Airbags
    XM Radio
    Auto Dual zone A/C
    Remote Starter
    plus all the std stuff like DOD V8, OnStar, HUD, TC, Stabilitrak, etc...
    MSRP $33,395
    - $2000 rebate
    - $2000 GM Card points
    - $500 GM Bonus cash
    + $168 License & Title fees
    My Price $25,354.98
    There is nothing that comes close to this car with its options and performance for the price.
    I've only driven it ~ 25 miles home on the back roads (Fwy grid lock Friday night)
    Sticks to the road like the tires have glue, ride is taut but compliant, not harsh over pavement breaks, rough spots, acceleration is quick, powerful and endless...
    I will take it over some of my usual byways this weekend and will have a much better feel of it - but it is impressive. GM didn't just gussy up the GP it did some re-engineering and it shows. :D

    A guy over in the 2006 Impala SS forum provided us with this link about the LS4:

    The DOD system sure looks complicated! I was thinking of buying either a Gran Prix GXP, Monte SS, or Impala SS, but now I'll just wait and see how reliable the new V-8 motor is.

  • Since folks are driving and actually own the new GXP GP isn't it finally time this thread moves over to the sedans forum?
  • Kirstie@EdmundsKirstie@Edmunds Posts: 10,677
