Default GXP

Ouch doesn't cover it. Just seeing that gives me a headache.
But, woring for a big rental car agency. I"ve see a few GXP'* and reg Grand Prix,
Monte Carlos, and Impalas come back worse.
One GXP (2007 Dark Grey ) came back. And It took awhile to figure out what type of car it was. It was mangled so bad that only one tire was touching the ground.
This just adds to my list of complaints for GM and the rest of the "Big 3" (Ford and Chrysler) Those damn plastic bumpers, with nothing inside but stryofoam. Need good Metal bumers, or something offering more protection.
Then theres the case of the basically plastic car and SUV meaning the Ion and the Vue.
But not going to rant it here.

Considering he was smoked by a F350 going about 50 i think it faired well... and who ever said there isn't a bumper... all cars have then there behind the crush foam

Yeah Toyota and Honda use some plastic bumpers too. So you cant blame the Big 3 only. The Vues plastic panels are ok, and you don't have to worry about being in a wreck if you are aware of you surroundings. Unfortunately Saturn'* is stopping with the plastic on the next gen Vue and Ion. Maybe the rental company'* should wrap the whole car with metal bars

Off-topic, but the hard metal bumpers hurt too many necks. Crumple zones are where it'* at these days, offering less jarring impact to the occupants.

Those damn F-150-250-350 drivers think their crap don't stink. They speed around with no care for others safty. My buddies dad'* F-150 is bran new and even he admits its a slow POS. Why drive around reclesly and endanger just because you are insecure about driving a slow a$$ POS. Well, I hope he learned his leason here. On the other hand I feel bad for the GXP driver that had to fall victom to the Ford driver'* small whinis.

Easy there. If it weren't for this Pontiac, I would likely still be a Ford driver, and I can tell you, I never once thought that way. And, uhhh....my wife can vouch quite the opposite for the other part you mentioned...
