Love It! — I absolutely love my car. I bought it used and it was near mint condition. I ask alot of my car-I like to use all of the 219 horses under the hood-and it delivers every time perfectly. It's a dream to drive, smooth but it's not like most of today's cars that seem like they drive themselves. It's a responsive performance car, an absolute joy to drive. The styling inside and out is impeccable-simplistic, functional, and hot! The car turns heads. Gas mileage isn't bad for a car like this-I got 30+ mpg on a long highway trip and usually 24 into the city when I go to work. I wouldn't trade it for any car. Sad that Pontiac was cut from GM. I think they made a mistake!

Look At The G6 Before You Buy A 40k — I have the 66 GT, I have to carefully manage starts to avoid wheel spin on dry pavement. The car has plenty of power and good fuel economy at the same time. I get about 22.7 around town and 29 on the highway. This thing is aerodynamic because it gets its best mileage around 75 mph. The appearance is nice and my friends who drive expensive imports say the car has good looks but they wonder if it is too good to be true. I think the fit and finish is better than Acura. No maintenance besides the usual oil changes and such. The car is fun to drive and has better handling than the Audi A4 I owned previously on dry roads. Quattro was better in the rain and snow but had gas guzzler mileages in the range of 11-12 mpg, kind of like an H2 HUMMER. How did they do that in a 2.8 liter compact?

Good Car For The Money. — Good looking car, very reliable, pretty good ride. Nice all around commuter car. Head lights are very good and lights up the road well, I added HID and usually that’s a big improvement but they were not a big deal but made the car look better at night. Only 2 problems in 125,000 miles; First the Catalytic Converter clogged but warranty covered that, 2nd variable valve timing solenoid failed, out of warranty so I got one online $60 and installed it in about 10 minutes, very easy to access. Only had to replace front pads twice and rear pads once.

Pros

Performance and Handling

Cons

nothing such an awesome car

35

Get It! — Performance is outstanding, acceleration is good, braking stops on a dime, handles like a sports car with responsive steering. Car itself is pretty nice nothing wrong from factory. It's quite fun to drive and it handles like a charm. Sound system is the bomb, stock sounds better than most aftermarket systems. Gas mileage and maintenance is low, gets close to 20-25 city and over 30 on the highway.

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

Great car to get to and from, has a great sound system, good mileage, peppy, and fun to drive.

Cons

None that I have encontered yet(Everyone in my family that drives it says the side mirrors are to little and you cannot see much out of them.).

Awesome Replacment To The Grand Am! — Well as for performance, it is relatively quick for a four cylinder(there is for room for improvement to be added later). I bought it for gas mileage at the time I got it, so I did not expect much. As for build quality, it is a great car with good fit, no squeaks or rattles have developed yet. As for overall looks I like it inside and out, but would love it more if I opted for the metallic black. Right now this cars cost of ownership is low, great gas mileage and low maintenance costs. The car is great fun to drive, I love the sound of the engine, the sound system(factory by the way) and the seats are great, they really hold you in well. As for recommending this car to a friend, yes I would, but I would recommend the bigger engines if they want a little more power and are not just looking for a car that is easy on gas.

The Sun Roof

Cons

The Cost

Great Car — I love the look on the outside, but the interior room for the back seat is limited for anyone about 6 feet tall. The cost of insurance for 6 months is ridicules for someone under 25 years of age, but overall a great passenger car. Last but not least a great car on gas millage if you are nice to it.

Pros

Very stylish and flashy, nice wheels, very roomy, accelerates and handles great!

Cons

May attract too much attention with the 18" chrome wheels, easy to go over speed limit (speeding tickets), XM radio does not display song titles and artists (dont know why), not enought bass in sound system.

Young, Fly, And Flashy!! — I absolutely love this car! I previously had a 2005 GT model but had to upgrade to the 2008 GXP. It is worth the extra headaches and hours I had to pick up at work in order to afford this. Looks sporty and handles beautifully. If you get one, get the GXP Street Edition, thats what I have, it is the top of the line model. Nice leather seats and the sound system is great. This car looks good and will make you look even better. Better yet it will keep the haters hatin'!

Teenagers Car — I liked it because it was cheap on gas and it did not break down, tires wear good, stereo has its flaws,slow on big hills, but always gets you there.if you need a cheap economy car this is hard to beat.
