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

Handles well, looks cool, much better looking than the grand am it replaced.

Cons

Crappy gas mileage for a 4 cylinder i think, it averaged like 23 mpg on the trip computer for a mix of city and parkway/turnpike(highway) driving. And i wasn't even driving it fast...

Pontiac G6 — We rented this car from Avis when we visited relatives and friends in NJ back in 06. Its a neat mid-sized car, we had the 2.4l 4 cylinder model with Automatic.

Great From The Line — The car has amazing power and acceleration. It will push you back in the seat and give you goose bumps as it changes gears.

Gorgeous Car That Growls With Power. — For those who want that perfect balance between power and style, the G6 delivers. This car is solid-as-a-rock reliable and is one that you'll be proud to roll up in at any occasion.

Pros

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

Cons

The traction control and blind spots.

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.

2006 Pontiac G6 GT Coupe Review

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.
