i am thinking about picking up a 2004 gto and would like to know what
everyone elese thinks. i took one out for a test drive the other day and
was in complete shock, i instantly fell in love with it, even though i
managed to get my first speeding ticket ever on the test drive, but i would
like some feed back from people. It seems that edmunds gave it a good
review but i was wondering what others thought.
You got a speeding ticket on a test drive? :laughing:
If it's your first speeding ticket, then this is probably one of your first cars, and I wouldn't suggest it, because you'll probably total it, but I love the car, and if you're positive you can drive her safely, then I'd say go for it :thumbs::2cents:
I thought I made a thread on this... *searches*
Yup, I did. http://www.car-forums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=3770
Perhaps some of the responses in there will help you out some. :thumbs:
i have been driving for 7 years now so i think i can handle the car, but
yes, that was my first speeding ticket ever. i really like the car alot
and i was just wondering how others felt about it.
How bad were you speding and where
Whats your name?
Where do you live?
Any relatives I should know about?
I personally don't like the GTO, I like the performance but the styling is too boring. It kind of seems like a Grand-am with 2 doors and some minor styling adjustments. My oppinion shouldn't really matter though, if you like it I say go for it.
You idiot. I was asking how fast he was going in what speed limit, and if it was highway, main streets, backroads, etc.:banghead:
the new GTO's are great and all, maybe not the 5.7L ones though
I just wish they looked more muscle-car like :2cents:
i was on the beltway in baltimore, MD. the speed limit is 55 and i was
doing 76. good thing they did not catch me when i was doing 120.
I think what Benson meant was, Who gives a shit?
I personally love the GTO. Although here it's the Vauxhall Monaro (Or Holden Monaro in Aus). It's still the same car though, with pretty much the same engine!
I don't see a point in asking how fast he was going, he was just asking your oppinion on the car and you got off topic.
save up a few more grand and get an 05+. 6.0L LS2, Dual exhaust, ram air hood. 50 more horsepower...
i am shooting for a 2005 but i don't know if i want to part with that much
money. i am in the process of buying a house and can't afford a real high
payment on top of my $200/ insurance on the gto.
there is a lot of disbute over this car, mainly because people say it does not look like a gto, but who knows what a gto should look like. nobody has seen a new one in over 20 years, plus i have a grand-am now and for some reason i just love their styling. too bad hyundai does not make a real sports car yet, i would get a great deal since i sell them for a living.
there bring there v8 coupes over here in 2007or08 I think I am just unshure of its name I will google it.
Well, its your choice and money.
More engine, power, and style for a few more bucks
a wee bit smaller bills for a slower, more boring gto IMO
Im all for 05, and i think you'd be glad u did if u got it
sure it may be booring but didnt Delorean design it before he died?
Yeah i would still go w/ the 05 but even if you get the LS1 you can still get a ton of performance upgrades for it so i say go for it and tune it up yourself!!!!
I never heard of delorean designing it...
Theres no replacement for displacement:thumbs:
I think it's a very sexy car. I do favor the '05s and '06s more than the '04s because of their power and the dual hood scoops (and the new tail lights for '06), and the fact that it's an Australian-made car gives it a more...I dunno, 'exotic' feel to it, in my opinion. True, it's no Ferrari, but at least you could afford it.
