Um yeah... i agree that if you don't like the seat then why in the world would you buy the car and then complain about it.

You mentioned something about a "rubbing" when you 1st pull off, I am experiencing the same with my Grand Prix... did you ever figure out what it was?

I totally agree with the very limited headroom. I thought it was because of the sun roof or something. My wifes 03 GP has ample head room for me. Why did I buy the car if there wasn't enough head room? Simple, I had the 03 and figured it would be the same inside. I did not testdrive the car as it came 400 miles away from another dealer.

What I find hilarious is that the original poster somehow wants GM to retrofit the car so he can fit into it.
That said, there are about a zillion aftermarket seats available.
Or maybe he should do what the 16 year old kid did on the Lincoln Continental review - take a hacksaw and turn it into a convertible.

Uhhhh...the seat on MY Pontiac has an "up" and "down" height adjustment. I thought they all did if they had power seats. Am I wrong about that? My head rubbed the ceiling too until I pushed the button and lowered the seat.

I'm only 5ft tall, so head room really won't be an issue. Are there any serious defects that I need to worry about?

You likely have nothing to worry about, other than the standard things that need to be looked for any time you buy a used car. I have an '03 GTP 4 door, and other than the headroom issue others have mentioned, it's a great car. Mine now has 114,000 Km (68,000 Mi) on it. I'm noticing the suspension is getting soft, and it's pretty bouncy going over railway tracks and humps in the road. If I keep the car it needs shocks and struts all around soon. This car has not been driven hard, so keep that in mind when you're looking. Check out all the power options to make sure they work. Things like faulty stereos are expensive to replace or fix. Mine all work fine. By '03 GM was building a pretty good product. (If you're in western Canada, and want a very clean 4 door, I'd sell mine. I've found a convertible I want instead.)

"Things like faulty stereos are expensive to replace or fix."
Not really. A local shop here specializes in upscale sound systems removed from damaged vehicles. They even advise you on how to install them if you don't want to pay them to install it. I picked up a like-new factory premium stereo for my last 5.0 Mustang for $50.
