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

Love This Car — my g8 gt is the sweetest car I have ever driven. The performance is unbelievable. the fit and finish is such a vast improvement over previous pontiacs. A car you can feel cool in and still take the family out to dinner. I absoulutely love the car. sporty infinity's and lexus's look at you with envy knowing you can smoke them with ease. And for fuel economy, who the hell buys a 6.0 liter v8 for good gas mileage. Did I mention that I love this car!!

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

Pros: Looks, Power, Practicality, Quality, Price

Cons: Arn't any

Awesome Car!! — Performance – Acceleration, braking and handling on this car is phenomenal. There is a reason all of the car rags compare it to BMW.... Build Quality – Has not needed any repairs. Has nice and tight panel gaps. Appearance – The exterior has a very European flair, but with the Panther Black Metallic paint, it is fairly stealthy. The interior is very nicely styled (with the leather seats). Cost of Ownership – Hwy mileage is great for a 6.0L V8 - 27+ mpg. In town, it is a function of how much you can keep your foot out of it. Only other maintenance costs to date is oil changes. A little pricey as it takes almost 10 qts of oil. Fun Factor – This car is an absolute blast to drive. I ALWAYS enjoy driving it. Other- Tons of leg room for everyone, especially the back seat. Largest trunk in its class (17+ cu ft, Charger & Maxima both have 15 cu ft).

Pros: Great performance, styling and has a lot of utility

Cons: I wish I had more than 1!!

Pontiac G8 Gt — Fast and sexy. What else could you want. 0-60 in about 4 seconds now, 1/4 mid to high 12's, huge breaks, great handling especially for a 4000 lb. car, amazing exterior styling, very nice and roomy interior, mileage sucks around time but is awsome on the highway and fun to drive id say is a 9.5 on a scale from 1 to 10.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Ass hole dealers, ridiculously restrictive stock air box and exhaust.

G8 First Look — Fast as hell and still a family car. The seats hug you well and the stereo cranks real nice, especially with 2000 watts pumping to two 12's in the trunk (my specialty). I get lots of great comments and a respectable MPG to boot! Definitely recommend this car!

Pros: Excellent performance

Cons: glove box pops open if you jump railroad tracks

Amazing Machine — Amazing machine and so much fun to drive!!I just bought this car and I have never had so much fun driving a vechicle before. Sleek and fast and it is not 1 out of every 5 cars on the road. Only reserved for cool people. Best car from Potiac

Pros: Slick and unique

Cons: nothing

Sharp — I bought the pontiac g8 because of the way it handles on the road. I've owned pontiacs before and I wasn't quite as pleased as I am with this car. It has everything heated leather seats, sunroof, digital stereo, V6 engine, and one of the sharpest looking cars I have ever seen.

Pros: 18in wheels, leather seats, perfect handling, great gas mileage

Cons: Nothing!

Excellent Bmw 5series Contender — Big interior, big engine, excellent built at a low price.... what else can you want

Pros: REAR WHEEL DRIVE...at last, an affordable sedan that is rear wheel drive and powerfull
Superb sound system and plenty of options to  select when buying

Cons: Let me say this.... V8 6.0 engine.... although it has DOD (Displacement On Demand) this puppy like to drink fuel..... specially in the city.
Also, back tires do not like the engine too much, they produce smoke to signal their protest.
