2009 Pontiac G5 Se — The performance is underwhelming, but I have beat a few cars I never thought I could. I get about 55 mpg on the highway when I drive REAL nice, and have gotten better on occasion. THe interior is nice, and the stereo is decent for stock. Its a pretty fun car to drive, but its no SS.

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.

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.

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.

Worth What I Paid ($12,000 Cdn) — Poor acceleration at times in first gear but great on fuel. Still fun to drive. Styling is good. Comfortable seating. Can't say much for the radio/stereo. All in all, great car and I'd buy another Pontiac in the future.
