Pros

great looks, performance and handling

Cons

if you dent it or have to replace something it's gonna be so pricey, like the diver side a column exterior wraps up and over the driver side doors and underneath them too in a big c shape which means you dent or damage that and they'll have to take the whole thing apart just to fix that.

Awesome — Well, the black leather and the rims were the best part, but i loved the sunroof and the style overall. a real eye catcher. fold-down pass through seats which came in handy more than a few times.

Nicest Car I Have Ever Been In — Very comfortable to ride in. The ride is extremely smooth especialy on the higway. Acceleration was very good. Stereo was very nice. The teloscopic stering wheel is very neat and handy, especialy for you big and tall folks.Very quite ride.

Nice Car For The Cash — for an american car, needing to please the cushion behinds of our nation, the g6 is not bad. quick off the line, great steering, modest oversteer and of course, the dreaded FWD push...

Pros

Engine, looks, ride, handling, interior, solid feel, and speed

Cons

Auto tranny, I should've got 6spd. And mpg can always be better.

Smooth, Sleek, And Quick... — This is a heavy car, about 3500lbs, but the 240hp 3.9L V6 is more than enough to pull it around quickly. The 4wheels disk breaks stop it very well, and GM's FE2 suspension sticks it to the road , but at the same time is smooth over bumps. The 4 speed auto is "dated" but the tap shift lets you redline and won't shift which is nice. The optional 6spd has short throws and a fairly heavy clutch, but it's easy enough, and a lot more fun. 6spd is the way go go, just get the GT if you want an automatic. This car is a leap in the right direction for GM, and is more than up to the task to compete with Accord/Altima/Eclipse

All In All A Great Car — it handles pretty good for a four door. the build quality is good too, low maintenace costs. on average it gets about 25mpgs in the city, and close to 40 mpgs on the highway. The overall apperence of the car is pretty sleek, has a giant ass sunroof lol

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good Car, Wish They Still Made Pontiacs — This is my wife's car but overall its been a good vehicle . I don't drive it that much but the perforformance is good, and we have had little maintance cost since owning this car. I like the 18 inch wheels and 50 seris tires, makes the car look 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.
