Pros

Looks and sounds good

Cons

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.)

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 :)

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.

Pros

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

Fun To Drive And Ok On Gas, It Loves The Highways — She is an over hole in one, i love the 3.9 V6 and its ok on gas. Would like to try it in a 6 speed only for 2006. 2007 had a different motor and 6 speed auto. I would buy G6 but they are not going to make Pontiac after 2009 or 2010.

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!
