Pros

Great car to get around. good MPG and low cost to fix when it breaks. Even for a bigger guy like me the Two door G5 is a great daily driver.

Cons

snow can be its downfall  as many cars  do. but put it in 1st gear and  you can get anywhere

Great First Car. In My Case My Third Since I Started Driving — The Pontiac G5 is a great car. for either a new driver and hard worker or the Sunday driver. Gas to maintenance its all in budget with this car. parts come cheap enough from GM that doing something yourself makes it possible to get it done or take it to the shop.

Pros

My Pontiac G5 has proven to be very reliable and economical while providing a comfortable ride. A perfect highway car, it's 2.2L Ecotec engine provides 150 HP, and returns over 32 MPG.

Cons

The only thing I would change about the car would be the brakes; disc brakes all around would make it perfect.

Great Highway Cruiser — The Sun and Sound package really made my Pontiac G5 a fun car to drive. Great sound from the factory installed Pioneer speaker system and Sirius XM radio helped to make the miles fly by. In addition, the tilt and slide sunroof is amazing, a true stress reliever. The remote starter is a plus, especially on hot days. A safe (full airbags and traction control), and good performing car, I wouldn't change much about it except for the anti-lock braking system. Not a show stopper, but they really should have made it 4 wheel discs.

Great Value And Great Looks! — Wonderful interior, great options available. Build quality is good; however minor issues do exist (gap between hood and bonnet) Performance is acceptable-to-brisk, gas mileage is great (37mpg hwy with manual) Car is overall very fun to drive, with great handling and good stopping power.

Pretty Nice For My Second Car — small, pretty quick, good on gas, sounds nice (exhaust and pioneer system). Fully loaded, all black leather, Mods soon to come. Started with small red dome lights, hopefully red interior neon to compliment the awesome performance red tintcoat paint job.

Great Car — Great economy car. Couldn't be happier with it for what it is. It's a terd but i never have to touch it. It's freed up soo much time for other things that I don't mind the car payment and hike in insurance.
