This Is A Great Car. All Around. It's Quick, Cheap, Good On Gas, And Very Luxurious. — This is the car my fiance chose when it was time to get her a new car. I'm proud of her, she did a pretty good job. There's so many good things about this car. We haven't had any mechanical problems with it yet. The all leather interior was immaculate. It comes factory with keyless entry, remote start, slap-shift, 17" chrome rims, and a sunroof so big it might as well be a convertible. The stereo system isn't bad either. Sounds great, comes with an in dash 6 disc CD changer. This is a very quick car for a V6. it comes with the bigger 3.5 V6, with loads of acceleration, great handling, and quick response. i took this car to the track and it ran a 16.5 stock. not bad at all for a bone stock V6. there's just not enough good things to say about this car. we are the second owners, only paid $11,200 with 39,000 miles and everything on the car was like we were the first owners.

I Love This Car — I am surprised that the gas mileage is so good for a V 6, winter driving in the cold and I am averaging 28 miles to gallon, mileage is not as good city driving but overall very good, handles very well, it has lots of get up & go power and I love the looks of the car, a fun car to drive

Good At First.....then It Sucks — I love the way it drives, its really fast and it accelerates quickly too. I love the way it looks, its so much nicer than the sedans. It was a little expensive, and its not too great on gas (only about 20-22mpg) but it has a lot of extras; like 6 disc CD changer, sunroof, the brake and gas petal move, leather heated seats and automatic start. Its so fun to drive too. That review was when I first bought the car over a year ago. Now, I haven't had any major problems with this car, but it is such a pain, I have had to take it to get the automatic strearing fixed, the brakes keep wearing out too quickly, it makes noise like the window is down if you drive over 60. I have had to take it in to have the sunroof worked on 4 different times, and its still not fixed. It leaks really bad, and now everytime it rains or is really humid out, the car smells. The leather seats look worn out, Im just ready to get rid of it. Oh also the low profile 18in wheels were very expensive to replace over $600

Great Car — Performance is great! it accelerates pretty fast, and the brakes are good as well is the handling. This car is built really well. I have had no problems with it, except for a rattle in one of my bass speakers. I love the appearance of this car both inside and out. Gas mileage isnt great, but its not horrible either, it gets around 20mpg. This car is really fun to drive, and i love driving it.

06 G6 Gtp — This Car is great. Performance- Acceleration is really good, brakes feel solid, A little bit of torque steer when starting from a stop but thats what you get with a front wheel drive. This car is a Blast to drive. Gorgeous Exterior and nice quality interior. Gas mileage could be better but it is a HO 3.9 liter V6 So i'm not complaining too much. goes with the engine

My Pontiac Rocks! — Build quality- steering column needed replacing already so not very happy there. Everything else is pretty good considering its a V6. Gas mileage could be better. But the performance is good and the fun factor is definitely high. And the sunroof rocks.

My G6 — Good performance and gas mileage. I feel safe getting on the highway and like the xm radio. If you keep some wax on it the bugs just wipe off. Great car

I'll Miss My G6 — I really liked owning this car. It looked good, drove well (was a great highway car, terrific acceleration, and awesome in the snow), got great gas mileage (I averaged 32 on most interstate drives, 25 around town), had a very usable trunk (which is a necessity in my line of work), and never once had a single mechanical issue in the 80,000 miles I put on it. Plus, the electric blue paint job looked really good with tinted windows and black interior. I didn't like the 4-speed manumatic transmission, though. It needs a fifth gear and a more responsive slap-shift. Also, the cornering was very "front-wheel-drive-GM." That being said, I would have no misgivings about recommending this car to one of my friends.
