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.

Pros

Terrific styling. Handles great. It is sporty and gets very good fuel economy.

Cons

Trunk opening is a little small (although the size is good & there is a pass-through into back seats)

Stylish, Sporty & Fun — This is an excellent car! It drives great and gets decent fuel economy. It's sporty, handles great, has great seats (both front & rear). It is also very well made - no shakes or rattles. This is a very reliable vehicle and has never let me down. I love this car!

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

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.

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

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.

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.
