My 04 gt really seems sluggish lately when I am driving at the 20-30mph range. I really have to hit the gas for it to go, but at any other speed it seems fine. I have 64,000 miles on it. I mostly do city driving. Yesterday i took it on the freeway up to about 75mph to blow it out a little bit. At higher speeds it takes off just fine. What could this be? And I know all these newer cars are claiming to have 100,000 mile spark plugs, but I think this is crap. Any suggestions?

yah do a good italian tune up, you know plugs, wires, filters, maybe look at the 02 sensor, after that clean the maf and TB....the normal stuff. that should take care of most of it.

Yeah, I'd focus on the 'cheap' things first, like a fuel filter, MAF cleaning, etc. It wouldn't hurt to do the plugs/wires. Maybe throw some injector cleaner in, cheap fix...
