    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.

    Great Car For Price! — I like the wheels and the color since I don't have to wash often but its still an American car and do not have long life spans. Im happy to have it tho, its my baby! I have people that always manage to find a way to hit my car while its parked so its not the same ride anymore but I still am happy with my G6!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: manual/automatic mode, smooth ride

    Cons: once in accident its never the same..(but thats every car)

    Get It! — Performance is outstanding, acceleration is good, braking stops on a dime, handles like a sports car with responsive steering. Car itself is pretty nice nothing wrong from factory. It's quite fun to drive and it handles like a charm. Sound system is the bomb, stock sounds better than most aftermarket systems. Gas mileage and maintenance is low, gets close to 20-25 city and over 30 on the highway.

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

    Pros: Performance and Handling

    Cons: nothing such an awesome car

    For An American Car, Its Pretty Damn Awesome. — I love the monsoon sound system with built in subs and i love how quick it gets up and gets going and the price is pretty good too. i love driving but i cant wait to get the 17in alloys taken off and get a spolier on so i have better handeling.

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

    Pros: the sound system and red dash

    Cons: the handeling

    Love It! — I absolutely love my car. I bought it used and it was near mint condition. I ask alot of my car-I like to use all of the 219 horses under the hood-and it delivers every time perfectly. It's a dream to drive, smooth but it's not like most of today's cars that seem like they drive themselves. It's a responsive performance car, an absolute joy to drive. The styling inside and out is impeccable-simplistic, functional, and hot! The car turns heads. Gas mileage isn't bad for a car like this-I got 30+ mpg on a long highway trip and usually 24 into the city when I go to work. I wouldn't trade it for any car. Sad that Pontiac was cut from GM. I think they made a mistake!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great styling, awesome performance, affordable and fun!

    Cons: windows fog very, very easily

    It Is A Very Good Car If You Are Looking For A Smooth And Fun Car, Even For A Family Car. — i love my car just bought it and i have found nothing wrong with it. I also love how it handles on the road. I paid a very good price for it, even though it was used. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants one. Plus the look of the car is very good looking. good gas mileage for a v6 car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good gas mileage

    Cons: don't have bluetooth on my car radio
