Pros

Engine, looks, ride, handling, interior, solid feel, and speed

Cons

Auto tranny, I should've got 6spd. And mpg can always be better.

Smooth, Sleek, And Quick... — This is a heavy car, about 3500lbs, but the 240hp 3.9L V6 is more than enough to pull it around quickly. The 4wheels disk breaks stop it very well, and GM's FE2 suspension sticks it to the road , but at the same time is smooth over bumps. The 4 speed auto is "dated" but the tap shift lets you redline and won't shift which is nice. The optional 6spd has short throws and a fairly heavy clutch, but it's easy enough, and a lot more fun. 6spd is the way go go, just get the GT if you want an automatic. This car is a leap in the right direction for GM, and is more than up to the task to compete with Accord/Altima/Eclipse

All In All A Great Car — it handles pretty good for a four door. the build quality is good too, low maintenace costs. on average it gets about 25mpgs in the city, and close to 40 mpgs on the highway. The overall apperence of the car is pretty sleek, has a giant ass sunroof lol

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

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.

Great American Car — very nice car and great looking. very torquey. could use a taller 4th gear to get a little better mgp but its ok. it handles really nice and is very fun to drive. the ride is firm but not uncomfortable and the stearing is sharp and direct

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.

Good Car, Wish They Still Made Pontiacs — This is my wife's car but overall its been a good vehicle . I don't drive it that much but the perforformance is good, and we have had little maintance cost since owning this car. I like the 18 inch wheels and 50 seris tires, makes the car look nice.
