Fun, Sport, Family Car. — This car gets the job done. From going fast and having fun, to transporting your family members, and to just taking a little sunday drive; it does it all. The A/C is nice, strong and cold for those hot summer days and you also have the sunroof. This is a great first car for anyone and will be a great deal of fun for anyone who is lucky to have it.

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

Pros: This car is nice and comfy and makes great for long trips. Plenty of room and little noise when driving. The engine is very nice and smooth.

Cons: Gas milage is not the best, only getting 17mpg city. It's only bad if you drive it fast!

One Of The Best Cars Out There For The Money — The cars acceleration for this V6 is brutal. It will throw you side to side if you don't respect it. The brakes stop on a dime. The car is more than willing to be thrown around corners. It seems quite happy to be driven hard. The build quality is very well. There is nothing else that looks like the GXP on the road today. If you put cruise control on the highway at about 70 mph, you can get about 36 MPG. Maintenance is pretty simple. This car is incredibly fun to drive.

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

Pros: I pretty much love everything about this car.

Cons: That they aren't made anymore

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good fuel economy

Cons: Needs more power

Great Car — I love nearly everything about my car. Great acceleration for its class. The only mods I have so far are a resonator delete and a CRAB cold air intake with a K&N cone air filter. The future mods I'm looking to get are: Magnaflow exhaust MMS headers Cam upgrade custom upper intake manifold all on a WAMS 93 octane tune

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast for a V6, Aggressive bolsters, aggressive front fascia,

Cons: If you step on it, it makes you pay

Middle Of The Road. — I dislike the turning radius of this car; also its backing characteristics. Huge blind spot. On the plus side, I enjoy its performance. It's very quick and agile in cornering and stable on curves. Braking capability is excellent. In all a nice ride. Buy another? Nah!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I like the quick acceleration when needed. The car is fun to drive.

Cons: I dislike the overall handling characteristics. Backing (without mirrors) can also be difficult.

Great Car For The Price. — I have had my Pontiac G6 (base, V6, 17' stock wheels) for two years now. There have been no unexpected repairs besides the intermediate shaft in the steering column (very common, is annoying, but doesn't need to be fixed.) Power is available at pretty much any time. Gas mileage has been about 19 observed, which I am OK with. My major gripe is that the trip and service computer is displayed thru the radio so I cannot easily upgrade the stereo. Overall I am happy with the vehicle, and it would be a great first car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power is more than adequate with 3.5 V6.

Cons: Driver's seat not very supportive.  Trip and service menu tied into radio.Fog lights need to be turned on every time car is started.

Price Is Great Car Is Excellent Others Might Be Cheaper But Not In The Near The Condition Of This 1 — I really like this car. But I've always liked the pontiac approach at style. Pontiac's were always the sportest of the GM line. It's a shame the did away with them. This particular car drives out perfect as you would expect with only 33,000 miles. No issues what so ever well worth the money. Getting hard to find these actually.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Well worth the money

Cons: Would buy it myself

Nice Drift/hod Rod. — I love this 2008 Pontiac G6, but I do not recommend it for anybody. The zoom zoom and brakes are amazing. It handles like a dream. I think it's fun as hell to drive. This car drives like a beast.

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

Pros: It's a pontiac.

Cons: Too many engine/frame issues.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: manual/automatic mode, smooth ride
