2006 Pontiac G6 Gtp — 6MT Transmission with 290 HP and 285 lbs-ft of torque to the wheels 0-60 in 5.9 seconds with K&N Ram Air Intake Definitely a fun car to drive, negative being the FWD. Upgrades in mind: - Exhaust - ECU - Forced Induction of some kind - Rims, but first I need to get new tires because I've burned mine out :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, Acceleration, Stability, Driver and passenger comfort

Cons: Body Roll, Cornering

My Pontiac Rocks! — Build quality- steering column needed replacing already so not very happy there. Everything else is pretty good considering its a V6. Gas mileage could be better. But the performance is good and the fun factor is definitely high. And the sunroof rocks.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling, fast

Cons: Repairs can be costly so keep it running good

Don't Trust A Pontiac. — Great car... until the warranty is out! At 37,000 miles my airbags, breaks, and transmission all began to go out. I drove it like an old lady, never slammed on the breaks or pushed the acceleration too hard, and still it started breaking down! While the car was fun to drive and great on gas and the interior was decently comfortable, the engine quality couldn't have been much worse.

Pros: good gas mileage

Cons: transmission, airbags, brakes, p.o.s.

I Will Miss Pontiac!!!! — I love my car. She has 74000 miles and still running strong. Gas mileage could be better...23 miles per gallon...that could be my driving though. I have not had to make any major repairs as of yet. hhmm It says i'm poetic...nice

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love all the interior features.  Heated seats, slap stick, leather, climate control.

Cons: I need new brakes!  There is not one thing that I can pin point that I do not like about my car.

Good At First.....then It Sucks —

I love the way it drives, its really fast and it accelerates quickly too. I love the way it looks, its so much nicer than the sedans. It was a little expensive, and its not too great on gas (only about 20-22mpg) but it has a lot of extras; like 6 disc CD changer, sunroof, the brake and gas petal move, leather heated seats and automatic start. Its so fun to drive too. That review was when I first bought the car over a year ago. Now, I haven't had any major problems with this car, but it is such a pain, I have had to take it to get the automatic strearing fixed, the brakes keep wearing out too quickly, it makes noise like the window is down if you drive over 60. I have had to take it in to have the sunroof worked on 4 different times, and its still not fixed. It leaks really bad, and now everytime it rains or is really humid out, the car smells. The leather seats look worn out, Im just ready to get rid of it. Oh also the low profile 18in wheels were very expensive to replace over $600

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Speed, Power, Sound system

Cons: Gas Mileage, Noisy, Leaks, Expensive to fix.

Love It! — Overall, this is hands down, the best car I've ever owned! I love the 6-speed manual, it's great in the curves or cruising down the highway. The interior is above average for GM and the seats are great! The engine is very smooth and has a lot of torque.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's quick, quiet, and engaging

Cons: Low resale value

Pontiac G6 What What — I wish it had more power!!!!!! I am a speed junkie though, for normal people it would probably be perfect. I am planning on trading it in toward a G8 after we pay it off! Then I will rule the streets!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's handling, speed, looks.....

Cons: I think the ball joints are shot, gotta check them out.

Good Car For What It Is — I love it as a car but I would prefer a truck, I am not a car guy. Veicle has great performance and hadling. Intake and exhaust add a lot of torque and HP. Great car for someone who prefers a coupe. I do not like the sedan model.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, fast, nice

Cons: Interior seat handles fall off
