G8 Review — My car is awesome. It is really fast especially on acceleration it does a 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. I am hoping to do more work to it and get it up to at least 500 hp but 700 would be better.

Pros: acceleration, power

Cons: inside is a little too plain and i get very bad gas mileage

Pontiac G8 Gt Will Put A Smile On Your Face!! — the only thing better than the acceleration is the fact that the brakes STOP the car asap when you need it. it is more money for the car than the chrysler 300 or dodge charger. Not many people on the highway can keep up with me or even come close. Along with OnStar voice navigation, this car takes it ti the next level and actually has a graphic navigational system. Very cool!!

Pros: Sleek, Carnivourous, what more do you need?

Cons: When I get home, I have to get out of my car.....

The 2009 Pontiac G8 Gt — This car is exactly what Pontiac has needed. It has superb quality and fit and finish is amazing! The performance is super. The truly wonderful thing about the G8 is the fact that it is practical, yet definitely a performance vehicle. The gas mileage is ok, but I guess good for a car with a 6.0L V8. The G8 is quiet, fun to drive, and good lookin. GM has definitely done an exceptional job on this car. Bravo! Now if only the rest of the Pontiac lineup was this good...

Pros: Muscle-car looks, practical, fast, handles well, great interior, good value

Cons: Gas mileage could be a little better, still a few tiny things in the interior that need work, overall nothing really negative.

Gr8 Gt — With 361 hp and 385 torque, this four door sedan will blow your mind. Brembo brakes, nice tight racing handling. Quality and appearance is incredible..its Aussie made. Get about 20mpg mixed. Its unbelievably fun... I would highly recommend this car to a friend. For a fully loaded G8 GT, you are looking at 33k compared to the bmw 550 at upwards of 60

Pros: everything

Cons: NOTHING

Bmw Killer — This was (and is) one of GM's best efforts in a performance sedan. It has the options to be cool and the performance to be extremely fun. The fit anf finish is very good. I am 6'5" and the seats fit and feel good. This car is very rewarding to drive. The Passport radar detector should come standard on this and the CTS-V. When was the last time you loved, I mean loved....any car? This car is truly one you can love with a capitol L. It is a sport sedan, so not for snow driving...but that's why SUV's exist. If you want a collector that is super fun, and will get more valuable over time (if you can find one) get this car. It has been a trouble free blast to own.

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

Pros: Power, style, handling, rarity, the "This car only costs how much" comments.

Cons: GM is incompetent (which is why they needed to be "bailed out") and killed Pontiac whereas they could have kept it as a niche brand to keep G8 and Solstice

Awesome Sports Sedan. — This car is awesome. Lots of power and excellent handling make it a ton of fun to drive. It's got an awesom interior and plenty of cargo space. It's great on road trips or just general cruising. I wish it was all wheel drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Tons of power.  Excellent handling. Roomy and comfortable front and back seats.  Great styling.

Cons: Gas mileage isn't the best.  Pillars are a bit large and the mirrors aren't the best so there are some blind spots.  Worst car I have ever driven in the winter.

I Wish Pontiac Stuck Around...i Would Buy Another One If Able — Great four door sedan with stylish looks and plenty of room. The 3.6L V6 has plenty of pickup and enough power to push this car through all weather in a state like Michigan. While the car is automatic the driver shift and sport mode make it fun to drive. The car comes with stabilitrak-stability, traction control, remote door locks, remote start and trunk release. The car came with premium package, sunroof, power glass package and comfort and sound package. Rear axle 2.92 ratio.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Big car; V6 has enough power with push it along; great sized car for kids, fits 5 adults comfortably; RWD has not been a problem in snowy Michigan; I average 22 mpg; great traction control; 5 speed auto with driver shift control and sport mode; Blaupunkt premium speaker system

Cons: Hubcaps are chipping and fading, shifting is not always smooth in sport mode, not a manual, drive key fab is cracked (spare key still works)

Head Turner — I own a 2009 Pontiac g8 gt and I can only say good things about it especially the power of a ls2 corvette engine under the hood. Unfortunately pontiac went out of business but this is such a great car I would have bought in to the company for a live time. If your looking for power under thirty grand this is the car for you with a 6.0L engine that Makes 361hp it will move but if you also want something that can handle the g8 has that too with just a tap of the brake you can move around a corner quickly. The interior of this car is also very nice and makes you feel as if you are one of those fancy European luxury cars and this car comes equipped with onstar. Overall the 2009 Pontiac g8 gt is a great modern muscle car but there are flaws such a terrible gas mileage so if your looking to go green don't buy this car.

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

Pros: Very fast

Cons: Terrible gas mileage

Great Driver And Excellent Design! — One of the most fun vehicles you will drive! Enjoy this car with many great options such as leather seats, remote start, and moon roof. The performance of this vehicle has been great and the look is one of best sport designs available! It is a real head turner along with a reliable ride.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Too many to list.

Cons: Not produced anymore
