Best Car I've Owned — I've had a Javelin, AMX and a Vette but my G8 is the best car I've ever had. It has everything I want. Size, looks, handling, power, comfort, maintainability. I plan on keeping my G8 to the end so mostly she is a garage queen.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

The Dingo Makes It To America — Rare breed on this side of the world. Thankfully some of them made it in before Pontiac went bye bye. Simply a rebadged Holden HSV8, this thing HAULS!! It looks sporty and aggressive and with a few tweaks became very fun to drive. Handling isnt its best dance but then again, its a full sized car.

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

Pros: Unique, Fast, can get bolt on parts from GM

Cons: Handling is not up to par

Amazing Car That Pontiac Finally Got Right! — This car is beautiful to look at, as well as being fairly rare to see on the road! This is my favorite car I have EVER owned or driven! It holds the road and handles like a much smaller car. It has tons of power and possabillities! This car has held its value better than any car even remotely in its price class! I haven't had any problems with it. Check out the consumer reviews for yourselves... When a cars only complaint is gas mileage... You have a winner! Also this car was built to compete with the M series BMW! AMAZING car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, looks, handling, amount of leg room, comfort! Honestly EVERYTHING!

Cons: Gas around town isn't great, but it is a 365bhp V8 car that weighs 4200 lb.s stock. The back seat is a bit loud with the mods I have done to it.

4 Out Of 5 Isn't Bad — Performance in a car this large and heavy is rather impressive, its essentially a 4 door Corvette that has no problem running with, say a late model M3. Build quality is OK. It would have been nice for GM to have a more impressive stock or optional stereo. Gas is ruthless to be expected around town, but on the highway isn't really all that bad. I have a fun time driving it, but need to take it well past 100 about once a month or so to fully appreciate the car.

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

Pros: Impressive sedan performance

Cons: Stereo is terrible

Buy It And Drive It !! Be The Participant In Life And Enjoy A Real Bargain And Understated Car. —

I love this car! Simply it is the 4 door Corvette that those with families will appreciate. The throttle response is crisp with the step off feel of the transmission strong from a stop. The build quality is superb and the ride quality is good. The road noise is still heard and could be better softened by laminated side door glass. The only complaint I have is that the recliner is manual and is very stiff to operate while seated in the car. Basically, you have to get out and adjust your seat which is surprisingly odd for the quality refinements of this car. Perhaps the Australians do not mind, however in Canada we like the power electric recliner and have come to expect this option when all other functions of the seat are power. The fit and finish of the exterior panels are very good indeed and rival vehicles worth ten of thousands of dollars more. The six speed automatic transmission is programmed for fuel economy and is sluggish and not very responsive until you move the gear shift to sport mode. This adaptive mode learns your driving characteristics and operates quite well. I personally would like a competition mode to firm up the shift points more aggressively. The Brembo brakes stop the car very well. The heavy dusting of the pads is annoying on the rims however a trade off for the performance of this brake system. The air conditioning system struggles to get cold within 15 minutes of starting the vehicle when experiencing common 30C days, even when in recirculate mode it performs poorly. The passenger seat does not move back as far as the driver's seat. I have compared with 3 other G8 vehicles and have come to the conclusion that the passenger seat track sits forward about two inches further than the driver's seat when fully moved back. For taller passengers this is annoying.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance priced famliy seddan second to none.

Cons: You are too fussy and should spend the additional $30k for that BMW.

Alot Of Quality Car For The Money — LOVE IT!!!! I have been wanting this car since even before it came out and it is even more than I expected. The motor is quiet but has a ton of power. It is a sleeper car that people least expect to be fast.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It is comfortable and fast for a stock car.

Cons: The rear tail light went out too soon, and the inside temp controls are messed up.
