Pros

It's convertible and catches people's attention

Cons

That I have to drive it in the winter and get rock chips on it.  Wish the button to drop the top was one touch instead of having to hold it the entire time.

One Sweet Ride — It has awesome leg room in the back seat unlike most convertibles. Stereo system is pretty good, but could be better.

Gorgeous Car That Growls With Power. — For those who want that perfect balance between power and style, the G6 delivers. This car is solid-as-a-rock reliable and is one that you'll be proud to roll up in at any occasion.

Pros

The panoramic roof, remote start, and 3.5L engine.

Cons

The traction control and blind spots.

85

Its Fun For A Person On A Budget. — Its not a sports car, and its not a top of the line car either, but for the money, its one of the best cars out there in its class. The back seat has lots of room, there are many options, it has great engine power for the size, many desirable features, large trunk space, and an overall solid appearance. Downsides are the large blind spots in it, and the traction control I have found to be rather lacking in Northern Michigan weather.

Pros

Looks, front and rear legroom, trunk space, MPG, acceleration

Cons

Turning Radius, Handling, Size (little large)

Beauty Is Skin Deep — A Gorgeous car, the looks are definitely a reason to but this car but it has some disadvantages. While it has agile acceleration and good MPG it lacks firm handling especially at low speeds. The interior is comfortable and spaceous excepting rear headroom. The turning circle is a little large and the length of this vehicle makes it sometimes tricky to handle. In short if your not sold on the looks don't go out of your way but otherwise it is a solid car.

Very Sharp Vehicle — Have not had to do much maintenance on this vehicle, regular oil changes and had a problem with the service airbag light. The vehicle has a couple of recall notices on it and these will be left inside the car are you can find them online.

A Fine Little Car. — The G6 GT makes a good commuter car. Mine has been very reliable with decent gas mileage and it's fun to drive. The power steering had intermittent issues, it would quit working, from about 100,000 miles that got worse aroung 150,000 miles. Fortunately GM replaced the steering column under waraanty at 150,000 and everything is workinig good again.

Pros

This car has gotten me everywhere I wanted to go. Enough power to get out of jams, and enough fuel efficiency to help the bank account.

Cons

Pontiac is out of business. Leather is cold in Oregon.

My G6 Will Live On In My Memory As A Great Coupe. — I like the sports handling and the power that it had. I did not like the complaining I got from rear seat passengers that were taller than 5 feet tall. I did not like replacing the rotors. I especially like the manumatic shifting option.

The Best Value On The Market At The Price Point. — The combination of gas mileage and reliability coupled with an outstanding price point makes the 2006 Pontiac G6 a wonderful value. Its reliability (MSN.com/autos) is very high, and the maintenance is very low. Parts are still very easy to get through any Chevrolet or GMC dealership and they're pretty easy to fix. All in all, its the perfect car for a frugal budget!

Pros

It gets good gas millage and is fun to drive. Perfect for a teenager just starting to learn to drive. As long as they can control themselves with the slapshift and 201 hp and optional traction control

Cons

Could have more hp for a 3.5 V6 and a better audio system as an option

Very Good Car. Easy To Drive And Fun. — Very fun and good car to drive all in all. I could ask for a better sound system because it doesnt sound the best but you could replace it yourself. The traction control button allows for some "fun" driving. Its one of the only FWD cars ive done an acctual burnout in

Discontinued Pontiac G6 — Got this car to commute to and from work. It is a sedan so it was very useful as a family vehicle as well. It seats 2 car seats in the back comfortably with latches and has surprisingly large trunk space.
