Pros

I love this car! It rides smooth and looks amazing!

Cons

If you don't pay attention you can get a ticket in this car. I got 3 warnings my first 3 months and honestly just wasn't paying attention.

Chick Magnet, Even With Kids In The Back, Just Ask My Husband! Lol — This car is the best car I have ever owned so far. It is even spacious enough for 3 kids, 2 adults, and camping equipment, including a cooler. It was tight but honestly I was impressed. Our family trips and outings have sadly out grown this car. We are moving on to a SUV, but honestly if I could afford 2 car payments I would never let this car go.

Great Little Car For All Seasons — Fun to drive and great on long road trips. Ave. 32+ mpg on hwy trips. Trunk will only hold 4 med. suitcases with top up. After all it is a hardtop convertible and it makes up for those days when the weather won't cooperate for a dry commute on the motorcycle.

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

This Has Been A Great 2nd Vehicle And Good For To/from Work And Weekend Car. — The performance is great for the V6 with plenty of power and control on the road. Sportly little care with good gas mileage. The appearance is sleek and with the 17" alloy wheels the car is a streamlined machine. The car is fun to drive with good acceration and race type suspension, yet comfortable for long rides or commutes.

body kit makes it really low, bad for northern roads lol

Looks And Drives Good, Geared Very High — 6 speed trans is geared very high, 185+ km/h in 4th gear. 3.9L V6 seems decently strong but has a low red line. Read wheel drive would be alot more fun to drive, as front wheel tends to push in the corners

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

2006 Pontiac G6 Gtp — 6MT Transmission with 290 HP and 285 lbs-ft of torque to the wheels 0-60 in 5.9 seconds with K&N Ram Air Intake Definitely a fun car to drive, negative being the FWD. Upgrades in mind: - Exhaust - ECU - Forced Induction of some kind - Rims, but first I need to get new tires because I've burned mine out :)
