it seems i need to repair or replace something on this dang(mean it in the nicest way) GTO every six months...btw i'm the first and only owner. its got 59k mile...anywho, i love my GTO so i cant get myself to sell it so...:willy::shutme
It's an age thing. When I pulled the motor out of my '70 last winter I was expecting couple hundred for paint and some touch up parts here and there. Then it was found this was broke, that needed replaced, this was original and will go at some point, since the motor was out it was wise to replace everything. The 200 or so turned into 1900. Most was all age of parts. Best thing you can do is expect things to start needing replaced and have a rainy day fund for it. Kind of like an GTO escrow account.
I wasn't sure if it was new or old. A newer GTO shouldn't be needing this kind of attention unless it was used hard, especially for a one owner. If its a new age GTO and its needing this that and the other thing... Triple the deposit funds to the GTO Escrow account.
** OK I looked ..... its an '05 ... guess I should have looked first before rendering an opinion -)
Mine has 40K. Just a battery and a few warranted parts (BCM, door actuator, rear springs, PCM, rear seat covers, rear end) mine was new as well and one owner. These cars have their share of issues. If you're lucky they fail under warranty, if not..... ouch. Many take pride of low miles... with the reported issues with these cars, its wise to drive them good and utilize the warranty if needed. Having a car with a few hundred miles that is way past warranty and then driving it good, the "normal" reported issues begin happening and repair is on your dime instead of GM. There are too many issues with this car as it is and at 59K miles with issues happening is inexcusable like most cars.
it's an 05 gto. i live in L.a. so there is really nowhere to drive it seriously hard. I love the stop light to stop light racing until i get burned by the cops or the person with deep pockets that i'm racing. onramps and passing on the freeway are especially fun. if i sell it now i"m bound to get raped so i'm keeping it for the long haul(or at least until the wife takes it in the divorce, haha)

Clark's Auto Repair for engine rebuilds
Thought I should mention... if you're in NorCal and need a Pontiac engine rebuilt, talk to Clark's Auto Repair in Cupertino. They rebuilt the stock 400 in my '68 GTO from the ground up in less than five weeks this summer -- which was their original...
