05 GXP, 46K miles. Bought it a year ago with 32k miles. Replaced tires(4) and both front bearings. Other than that, love the car. Pontiac should have come up with the "zoom zoom zoom" phrase before Mazda.

My 05 GXP just turned 20k miles and still runs like it did when it was new. I review many of the problems discussed in this forum and have been fortunate to have only one of them. The dreaded intermediate shaft. That was replaced by the dealer but haven't had any problems with my fog lights or any other weird GXP issues. Love the car as it'* unique and rare and it doesn't hurt that it moves out well for a full size car!

My '05 has about 75,000. Needs drivers wheel hub, coolant crossover gaskets, heater control module, and im guessing oil coolant lines. Other than that its a great car. Wouldn't trade it for the world.

69K on my 05 GXP... Besides the Oil smell about once or twice a week if that and the popping sounds i get some time when turning it'* great!!! But it'* under warranty so the Toyota dealership is going to get the local GM dealership to fix or replace the steering system.... Im thinking the oil cooling line leak should be covered also!!! Anyway, Great all around car IMO except on fuel.

Good luck getting the oil cooler lines covered. I tried pretty hard to get them fixed under my Nissan warranty, but oil cooler lines are the one thing they don't cover on any of their warranty tiers, and GM refused to offer me any solutions even though they had charged my warranty company over $3200 in repair costs and parts in the first year I owned it.

You win nothing, but hearty pat on the back.

It'* nice to know that my car has the potential to go another 50,000 miles, at least.

What is the secret of long GXP life?

2004 at 122,000 km (75,000 miles).

Couple of minor issues. All will be dealt with quickly.
