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.

Don't Trust A Pontiac. — Great car... until the warranty is out! At 37,000 miles my airbags, breaks, and transmission all began to go out. I drove it like an old lady, never slammed on the breaks or pushed the acceleration too hard, and still it started breaking down! While the car was fun to drive and great on gas and the interior was decently comfortable, the engine quality couldn't have been much worse.

I love all the interior features.  Heated seats, slap stick, leather, climate control.

Cons

I need new brakes!  There is not one thing that I can pin point that I do not like about my car.

I Will Miss Pontiac!!!! — I love my car. She has 74000 miles and still running strong. Gas mileage could be better...23 miles per gallon...that could be my driving though. I have not had to make any major repairs as of yet. hhmm It says i'm poetic...nice

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

Love It! — Overall, this is hands down, the best car I've ever owned! I love the 6-speed manual, it's great in the curves or cruising down the highway. The interior is above average for GM and the seats are great! The engine is very smooth and has a lot of torque.

Pontiac G6 What What — I wish it had more power!!!!!! I am a speed junkie though, for normal people it would probably be perfect. I am planning on trading it in toward a G8 after we pay it off! Then I will rule the streets!

Good Car For What It Is — I love it as a car but I would prefer a truck, I am not a car guy. Veicle has great performance and hadling. Intake and exhaust add a lot of torque and HP. Great car for someone who prefers a coupe. I do not like the sedan model.
