    Awesome 4-door Sports Sedan — I purchased the G8 GT new and have been extremely happy with the style and performance. The 6.0L 361hp V-8 and 6-speed automatic really deliver amazing performance. Fully independent suspension, wide tires, and 50/50 weight distribution give it incredible handling. 4-wheel disc brakes, traction and stability control just add to the fun. With the Active Fuel Management, I get about 21 mpg which I think is great for a car with the G8's performance.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Super performance. Basically a 4 door Corvette. Room for everyone. Huge trunk.

    Cons: Some parts can take a while to get. Tires can get pricy.

    Amazing Car. Pure Fun. — If i did not have a 3rd child now i would never consider selling this. It has taken me almost 2 years just to list it. This is the car that you keep and will be in shows someday. Beastly power, great size with a huge trunk. Extremely good handling and excellent highway fuel economy 25 mpg for a V8 6 liter is unheard of.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The power for the money is amazing. Great handling and balance. Very good in snow as well with its weight.

    Cons: Fuel economy. However for an V8 its excellent on fuel.

    Love It! Power, Looks, Good Mileage And Collectability — Overall I love this car. It has everything you could want in a sports car but built into a family sedan. There are only a few minor issues with the interior designs and seat moldings which need to be refined. But from a 1 to 10 rating I give this one a 9.5.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great power for type of car while maintaining a good fuel mileage. It has sleek lines and looks great. Clean and basic finish on the interior with a European feel.

    Cons: They need to work on some of the gauges and their position in the vehicle. The oil pressure and battery voltage is kind of in an wierd place. The blocky look also is a little outdated.

    Love It! — When I test drove this car, I had originally gone to the dealership to test drive a 2005 Bonneville, of which I have already owned three, my last on being a 1999. The legroom was less than what I had hoped, so the salesman literally said "Try this on for size" referring to a beautiful black G8 GT. We took it up on the highway, and he said "Go ahead, open 'er up"...and boy did I! I fell in love. And boy does it have leg room! And I'm trying to figure out how I survived without OnStar all of my life. What I love even more is that not only has it not lost any value, but the car is already worth more than I paid for it! The power is amazing, I love the ability to switch between manual and automatic on the fly, I love the large pass-thru in the backseat. Oh hell, there isn't much I don't like about the car. It does suck in the snow. That's my biggest gripe, but my other car is back on the road so it will never see snow again!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The G8 is a head turner.

    Cons: Sucks in the snow

    G8 Gt — Great car for the price! it's fast, handles great thank's to Eibach and Giovanna/Nexen wheel package. Like the interior does not feel like an "american built car" since it's made in Australia. MPG is not to bad considering it's 6.0L V8.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: No one know's what it is.

    Cons: No one know's what it is.

    Overall It Is A Great Car. A Four Door High Performance Vehicle. Have Fun ! — This car has got to be the most exhilarating car to drive. The power that this car has is so much more than anyone needs. The interior is simple and basic and has everything someone would need including 2 outlets to plug in your phone or ipod, etc. Considering the 6 liter engine, the gas mileage is very fair at around 17 mpg, and i tend to have a lead foot.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The best reason to buy the G8 GT is for the raw power you get for a vehicle that i haggled down to under 30 grand

    Cons: The only reason i can think of for not getting this vehicle is the very high chance of getting a speeding ticket
