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.

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.)

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.

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 :)

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!
