Plus its made by an American company, why else?

Oh, this explains it, the reports are from Comsumer Reports. They suck at rating cars, all they do it recommened all the foreign cars and say american built cars suck pretty much.

All the interiors are similar in most cars ... foreign and domestic.

I find the 06 GXP interior to be really quite nice.

'06 Grand Prix = dreadful! Drove one last week for a couple of days. Cheap cheap cheap. Much prefer the previous gen Grand Prix circa '97

I've driven Jeff'* car and it isn't cheap by any means. It rides nice and handles well. I like the widetrack feature and it is just as nice as my 97 GP. The cars aren't ugly

Interior is not exacly award winning.

I would prefer an 03 over an 04 myself any day.

while i personally feel all the grand prix'* are "cheap" to some extent, so are all car manufacturers on the market. I loved my GTP i used to have and would give to have it again however i feel the interior of my 04 is better built than my 99, the seats are more comfortable, the the gauges are easier to read and the cheap plastic doesnt feel or look as cheap as the precious models. Again, I also personally prefer the styling and looks of the 97-03, but the 04 and up do have a look all their own.
