    G8 With The V8 — Everything about this car is great! The performance, the ride, the braking and most importantly the engine. The car gets good milage but I didn't buy a V8 to get good gas mileage. This is my first "GM" car and I love it!!

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

    Pros: Engine, performance and ride quality

    Cons: Heavy, tires are expensive to replace on a RWD ;)

    Best Value Car On The Planet. — This is the best car in Pontiac's history. It handles like a BMW although it is smoother over bumps. It's 6 litre engine has 361 hp, and it will probably be the last big engined passenger car from an American company. It's fast, comfortable, has a great stereo, and has cavernous amount of room for a big guy like me and my big kids. And I can blow away every Mustang GT and Charger/Challenger that stops next to me.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Performance and comfort

    Cons: None

    2009.5 Pontiac G8 Gt — I absolutely look my 2009.5 Blue Stryker Metallic Pontiac G8 GT. The acceleration is super smooth and gets up to speed in seconds. My favorite options are the integrated bluetooth that rings through my stereo speakers and Active Fuel Management (V8 to V4 at highway speeds). So glad I bought it as their not making them anymore....it definitely turns heads!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything!

    Cons: Nothing!

    Way Better Than You Can Imagine. — 0-60 in 5.3 sec. is not an exaggeration. This thing is fast. It will put you back in your seats. Also gets 20 MPG on average if i'm not speeding too much. Which is pretty hard to do. Amazing Car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Speed, Comfort, Luxury

    Hot Rod With Room For A Family Of 5 — The best Pontiac ever built. I've owned 3 Pontiacs in the past 15 years and my new G8 GT is a HUGE upgrade. It's really gorgeous looking and turns heads. Then you get on the 6.0 liter V8 and it turns more heads. Handles like a car half the size/weight. I can't recommend this car enough. A true performance bargain for a 4 door sedan with room for the whole family but lots of fun to drive at the same time. Do your self a favor and get the Onyx/Red interior. It really looks MUCH better than just Onyx. Also adds some red on the gauges otherwise it's black as far as the eye can see.

    Pros: POWER, Handling, looks inside and out.

    Cons: It's the last great Pontiac.
