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.

Pros

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

Cons

The traction control and blind spots.

125

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)

55

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.

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

Cons

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.

My Review — I LOVE my car!! Its fast but still great on gas (it'll get like 35 on the highway if you drive it right). I love the bucket seats. I like the stripe, the spoiler, and the sunroof. Its a little sporty but still economical. And NO ITS NOT A CHICK CAR!!
