Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Im looking to buy a Pontiac G8. I love the car, how it drives, all the features etc, however
I'm concerned with the possible repair costs that I might have in the future
So what should I consider or look into before investing in  a car whose manufacturer
doesnt exist any longer?
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated! - Sam

You can have it serviced and repaired at any GM dealership. I'd stay away from the Cadillac dealers though. They tend to be snooty. Car manufacturers, in this case GM, are required by federal law to produce parts for their cars for 10 model years. From my experience with GMs parts don't start to get hard to find from GM until they're about 15 years old. I can still get certain parts for my'94 Cadillac Fleetwood from GM. That model was discontinued after the 1996 model run. Parts in the aftermarket (Advance, Autozone, etc.) will be available for many years to come. At the NAPA where I work we have, in stock, brake shoes for a '63 Chevy Belair, and wheel cylinder repair kits for a '42 Buick. HTH. -Jim

I have a G8 for sale with only around 36,889 miles or so; the worst problem I have had with parts is the driver's side control panel; it was very hard to find to replace (dealer replaced it twice); I have a third one which I haven't installed, but is included with a sale. G8 is a fun car; parts can be found (I believe), but may be somewhat expensive; GM should have done something about the seat panels, but when I tried after warranty, after much case dealings, nothing was done; part was not that expensive, just hard to find one reasonable!!
