Fun To Drive But A Gas Guzzler And No True Value For Money Either — amazing engine performance, minimal braking distance required from 140-0, sharp looks and typical GM low grade plastic interior, many manufacturing defects to begin with therefore many trips to the dealer required ,stock wheels have a chronic vibrating at 90-110 disorder

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: four door sports

Cons: very weak build quality. Thank God Pontiac is History, perhaps it was this model to bring them down.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The motor

2009 Pontiac G8 GT Review
Guru93H7S says:
Car is lighter and has very notable acceleration over the Camaro. Much rarer as well. It was produced in the Pontiac version for two years and the Chevrolet version (SS Sedan) for a much longer time. Side by side comparison of the SS Sedan is very close with the exception of V8 options. (6.0L vs 6.2L)

Handling Ranked 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"They handled very similar in most aspects, but the car seemed smaller and lighter. Traction control usually kicked in while shifting into second on the G8 GT. Also, while at higher speeds, there was more immediate acceleration by the G8 GT."
Back Seats Ranked 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"Much roomier. It is a full size sedan with a performance motor."

Beautiful car. Sleek arrow dynamic styling. However, very limited on amenities, even for a car of its time. The L76 motor with displacement on demand has big design faults.

Over all best car I have ever owned. Daily driver (110 mi. day) Very fast on the road, great ride. Not a track car, or a drag monster. Decent 22 mpg. average on the road. Lived in the left lane. It did stay home in the winter. NoGo in the snow. Used the 4x4. Fully maintained, Mobil 1 only. Still going strong. No issues at 172+ miles.
