Pontiac G6 — Its a great car dont get me wrong, great price ride, but compared to my other one it has a 3.5 liter V6 but not as fast as id like it, with about a grand under the hood it would be fantastic though.

Pros: Comfy, looks good, roomy, nice sized engine

Cons: Not enough power pushed out of the engine

Pontiac Gt - The Car That Could Have Been Great But Wasn't. —

We initially had problems with the factory tires (shaking the car). Ditched the Goodyears ASAP after dealing with dealership, Goodyear and GM squabbling over who would replace these POS expensive tires. Eventual dealership replaced two tires and Goodyear replaced the other two, after numerous tire rotations and huge amounts of tire balancing lead. We switched to a cheap no-name brand from Discount Tire and never had another issue with the car shaking and vibration so bad you could not see out of the rearview mirrors. Headlights failing due to plugs melting. This was eventually solved by replacing all sockets with replacement parts from auto supply store. We did not use GM replacement harness that was hugely over priced. I filed a NTSB complaint on the headlights as both beams failed while my wife was driving 70 mph at night. This scared her so much she will not drive it at night. About a year after warranty expired, brakes failed. Towed car to dealership where it sat for a month having the ABS system replaced (big $$). Drove off with car and brakes failed. We did not make it home. Another week at dealership having break lines bleed. Third try and brakes failed again - brake pedal was mushy to the floor and required pumping to get the car to stop. Towed car to private mechanic who replaced an inexpensive *cough* master cylinder and we have not had anymore brake issues. Retractable hardtop has worked fine since day-one, but the car has had a rattle in the roof that the dealership never resolved. There are some things I really like about the G-6 and some things that make me feel like I bought an over-priced lemon. On a sunny day driving with the roof down I can almost forgive Pontiac for the many flaws in this car - almost, then I put up the roof and hear that danged rattle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A nice hardtop convertible with great Monsoon sound system and XM/CD/radio.  It has been a dependable daily driver. Nice leather seats with power adjustments and heated seats.

Cons: Plastic interior does not go with leather seats.  Poor electrical connectors in headlight wiring harness that melted and required replacement. Prior to replacement you never knew if you would have headlights as one or both would fail randomly.

Great Car For The Average Driver — Good car Looks nice Tinted windows and Taillights Black arrowhead vinyls and 3rd brake light Needs more trunk space K&N air filter got her gas mileage up about 3 or 4 miles per gallon. Long Lasting warranty. Great stock sound system, but adding an aftermarket system sounds even better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: She puts effort into acceleration for a 4 cyl. and is has a nice ride.

Cons: She is only a 4 cyl. and I really need more power to have more fun.

Love It Love It — Acceleration is not the best looking for a cold air intake to get a better low end take off. The braking is good with the all wheel disc brakes and it handles great the faster you go the smoother the ride. No build defects everything is great in that area. I love the lines and styling of this car its very sporty. The interior is good but I don't care what the interior looks like in any car. I currently average 27.6 mpg between city and freeway driving. I love driving my car everyday.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: smooth ride

Cons: my paticular year came with a four speed auto, could've had a six and better mpg

2009 Pontiac G6 GT Coupe Review
MAC8818 says:
This coupe in terms of gas efficiency, is significantly more as a v6 than its competeing coupe the 4cyl Nissan Altima 2door. The car handles well and has plenty of pep. It is reliable and consistant, and after owning for more than 7 years i have yet to experience any major problems or concerns but of course routine maintence has been a priority. Tires, oil change, bulbs, and other routinen maintenance is surprisingly affordable and has yet to threaten to break the bank. It offers a smooth ride with a sleek appearance. Affordable and worth its value.

Power Ranked 2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL better.
"Torche is the component that makes the Altima more powerful. Both vehicles have plenty of pep but the Altima will hit the speed quicker than the g6."
Looks/Style Ranked 2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL worse.
"The G6 has a sleek body shape that has sharper angles than the Altima giving it a newer shape and style. The G6 has 19 factory wheels that really sell the exterior whereas the Altima doesnt offer a stock wheel option of that capacity. "

You are giving up the luxury of a coupe for style. With having a hard top convertible its both cars in 1. It is always stylish to drive around with your top down during the spring & summer.
