Mice Family Car — the g6 is a great family car I have owned it for 5 yrs and it hasn't let me down once. Weather on the highway or around town it has a smooth ride and handles well. There is plenty of back seat space for my passengers.

Pros

A nice hardtop convertible with great Monsoon sound system and XM/CD/radio.  It has been a dependable daily driver. Nice leather seats with power adjustments and heated seats.

Cons

Plastic interior does not go with leather seats.  Poor electrical connectors in headlight wiring harness that melted and required replacement. Prior to replacement you never knew if you would have headlights as one or both would fail randomly.

Pontiac Gt - The Car That Could Have Been Great But Wasn't. — We initially had problems with the factory tires (shaking the car). Ditched the Goodyears ASAP after dealing with dealership, Goodyear and GM squabbling over who would replace these POS expensive tires. Eventual dealership replaced two tires and Goodyear replaced the other two, after numerous tire rotations and huge amounts of tire balancing lead. We switched to a cheap no-name brand from Discount Tire and never had another issue with the car shaking and vibration so bad you could not see out of the rearview mirrors. Headlights failing due to plugs melting. This was eventually solved by replacing all sockets with replacement parts from auto supply store. We did not use GM replacement harness that was hugely over priced. I filed a NTSB complaint on the headlights as both beams failed while my wife was driving 70 mph at night. This scared her so much she will not drive it at night. About a year after warranty expired, brakes failed. Towed car to dealership where it sat for a month having the ABS system replaced (big $$). Drove off with car and brakes failed. We did not make it home. Another week at dealership having break lines bleed. Third try and brakes failed again - brake pedal was mushy to the floor and required pumping to get the car to stop. Towed car to private mechanic who replaced an inexpensive *cough* master cylinder and we have not had anymore brake issues. Retractable hardtop has worked fine since day-one, but the car has had a rattle in the roof that the dealership never resolved. There are some things I really like about the G-6 and some things that make me feel like I bought an over-priced lemon. On a sunny day driving with the roof down I can almost forgive Pontiac for the many flaws in this car - almost, then I put up the roof and hear that danged rattle.

Good Ride For The Gas Mileage. — This car performance is okay. The transmission has good shift points when you punch it and also when you drive down the highway. It does have really bad torque steer from the start. The speedo goes to 140 and dont know if it goes there but I bet it could. As far as appearance goes it a really nice looking car in and out but the build quality lacks when some moldings are starting to fall off and some of the interior panels dont quite line up or come together quite right.

Pontiac Will Not Be Forgoten — The car's got 3.5 220hp engine, quick on the get up and go. The car is large so it takes more thinking on making turn's. Hasn't had no problems yet and is sound. The style is a style many car company's I feel will have to try to match up to while this car is no longer in production.

Great Vehicle For A Great Price — Nothing. This car was very good to me! The heated seats were very useful in the winter, and the power sunroof was even more useful in the summer. Premium music listening quality including the speakers themselves, as well as the 6 disc changer, and the ability to plug in your ipod or iphone and listen to your music from that as well.

Great For The Average Driver — Handles like a champ, acceleration can be spontaneous at times. No powertrain issues, but the drivers side rear door lock sticks sometimes. The styling on the inside is the same on every pontiac car, I would like to see some more variety. Gas mileage can be very bad in the city. Overall I like driving the car.

Pontiac G6 — Its a great car dont get me wrong, great price ride, but compared to my other one it has a 3.5 liter V6 but not as fast as id like it, with about a grand under the hood it would be fantastic though.

Great Sporty Car That Fits Your Budget — They don't make Pontiacs anymore, but the G6 was a great car that gets you where you need to go. The G6 gets great gas mileage. Pontiacs have a nice red lit interior which helps you see better at night. Overall this is a great value car that is sporty and fun to drive.

Great Car For The Average Driver — Good car Looks nice Tinted windows and Taillights Black arrowhead vinyls and 3rd brake light Needs more trunk space K&N air filter got her gas mileage up about 3 or 4 miles per gallon. Long Lasting warranty. Great stock sound system, but adding an aftermarket system sounds even better.
