I like the GXP'*, but for the price i wouldnt get it or a 300, I would get a GTO. I looked it up on Pontiacs website before, there isnt much of a difference in price.

you can't compare the gto with to the gxp or the 300 for that matter. The gto will get you fom stop light to stoplight quicker but in snow the gxp will get you home. The goat may make it to a Holiday Inn. The gxp has 18 cu. ft of trunk space the gto 9ft The gxp is much
larger on the inside. THey are much different cars. Both are very nice rides. The gto is
much more of a pure muscle car;and with the limatations that go with it. The Bonneville
gxp is a large fwd touring sedan . It'* a shame more people flock to that new butt ugly
Avolan instead of the sharp clean lines of thr Bonny. The Gxp will be my next car very soon when the rebates hit 5 grand again. Oh, and about the 300; sure the hemi is nice
but will that DOD still be working in say 3 years. And say what you want about traction control in a RWD car ; FWD is sooo much better in bad weather. And that cheese-grater
front end on the 300; how could any one think that looks better than the clean linnes
and sexy shape of the gxp is beyond me!;

The avalon is a great car, i've liked it when i was in it, but the front isn't working for me. Im sure a redesign will be along in a few years. But it is differen't..

RWD in snow? That'* all people did till the 80'* and 90'*.... All BMW are RWD or AWD, they don't die in winter, IMO TC and a stability control on RWD will beat a FWD with nothing.

Wait for the $5,000 rebates again and the Bonneville GXP may not be around by then. Rebate no good for used GXPs.

People keep ripping on the 300c DOD saying will it still be working in 3 years etc. Hey its not the 70s and 80s anymore. Things dont have "Solid State" printed on them anymore and btw 300 comes in AWD so soo much for your bad weather concern.

I onw a 2005 GXP and I love it.

All I am trying to say is dont crap on other good cars for no reason. All cars have their advantages. BTW the GTO didnt seem that much faster than my GXP and the 300C was faster than the GTO.

my 2 cents

I just compared price! Not the actual features. BTW-I live in Florida. I havent seen snow in my life. I dont have to worry about that down here.

how was the 400hp GTO slower than the 340hp 300C? And the GTO has a manual shifter and is ALOT lighter.

The GTO has much better suspension, tires, power deilver, and transmissions.

05'* Run low 13'* maybe even high 12'* in the quarter. They flat out haul. The GXP is 125HP short, FWD, and runs high 14'* maybe even 15'*.
