Default Re: 2005 GT Vert owners need comments

As the owner of am 05 GT vert just under a year I would have to say seriously buying it. I would just say take it to a trusted mechanic for an eval. I've had a couple of issues since buying it used but all covered under warranty. I thought "just a year and a half old, what can be wrong?"

But overall it's a bit of an addictive car. It's got good power, a unique look, decent handling, while being the most practical sporty vert you can get. There are some inexpensive to expensive tweaks that can be done to extract more power and improve the handling. I did the air box mod this past wknd for about $50 (K&N filter and recharge kit) and 30 minutes. This simple mod really opens up the car's ability to breathe...and there are many other possibilities. I can't decide which to do next.

Other than what the above post mentioned other things to check or do- get rid of the stock Good-for-a-year tires ( I put 215/50/17 Kumho Ecsta ASX's), check the roof header for cracks ( not a big deal just put on the list to get fixed before the warranty runs out). BTW- if you are the second owner go to the local dealer and pay $150 to have the warranty transferred.
