I bought the car in Jan of 16, so this year and since then I have had to put in 2300$ into the car, it was sitting 178000 miles on it... I got it with a brand new alternator- then the recall for the ignition came along, so of course I had to replace that after a month of owning the car. Then put new struts shocks sway bar links. My head gasket blew when it to 190,000 and today exactly 8 months later from the day I bought the car, my transmission crapped out on me... I regret buying this car. Don't buy it

Going on 195k miles! It been a great car

I purchased my pontiac with in 2010, it was 5 years old and had a very good maintaince history and 95k miles. It had just had its 100k tune up with new plugs wires fluids etc... It's been a great car I cannot complain at all. The car has fantastic power and the drive train Is very reliable so far. The interior is very nicely put together unlike some of its predecessors at at gm. After almost 200 k I have no tears in the seats, cracks in the dash, no paint coming off of switches or any of the sorts. The interior is one of the best interiors in my opinion. The dash is clean and straight forward, not busy like most newer cars which is not my style. Red led gauges illuminate cleanly unlike previous red interiors from gm. On the outside the quality seems to be just as good l. Paint still looks great and shines like new after 12 years. Suspension has been fair. It does handle very nice and is a comfortable car but it's had its problems which I will go into detail soon. Now for the problems. At 10k It developed a leak in the Hester core that was VERY expensive. 1200 to replace only to have the new one do the same (independent garage uaed au to zone parts o fear)..... the third Heater core has been good to me so far. At 160 k I had to replace the fuel pump as it had developed a crack in the line molded to the top of it. Pump still worked fine but required replacing the whole unit because of the tube. At 180 k I had to replace tie rod ends and left lower control arm but I believe this had to do with terrible oklahoma roads, not poor design. The steering column has a rattle when you hit a bump the I could never fix. Also the headlamps and connectors required rwplacing as thwy had corroded in the connector and shorted out. Last of all it has developed a small oil leak I noticed when changing the oil and I have yet to access and fix this problem. This has been the problems I have gotten so far. For a car I paid 8000 for I have probably put 2000 in repairs and have had almost 6 years I would call this a great buy. I love the car. I hope I get as lucky as the guy below me and make it to 338 k. I know for a car that is fantastic mileage

338,000 Miles, all original, still going strong!

We bought our 2006 G6 GT in 2007 with 16k miles on it. It currently has 338k miles, and still runs great! I changed spark plugs at 180k miles, and they weren't even bad, but just thought it was enough miles on them. One complaint is the suspension, for the last 200k miles, it makes lots of rattles in the suspension. I'm sure it's an easy fix, but it still works good. We did replace power steering around 250k miles. Other than that, we have had amazing reliability with this car. Just do regular maintenance, wash the car once in a while, and you'll have no problems. This is a MN car, and there's lots of salt on our roads in the winter, and the body is just about perfect still. Would buy again.

This was the first new car I ever own. I had all the bells and whistles. I drove this car mainly on interstate twice a month to and from work 120 miles each way. In 8 years I put 63,000 on the car 90% interstate. Feul milage averaged 31mpg. It had plenty of power pulling mountains. Car was not good in snow if roads wheren't plowed good. Only issue where tires. Went threw multiple sets on rear until I found a good rubber combination. Had issues one time with sunroof leak that dealer fixed without issue. Only replaced brakes once at 50,000. Very good power to pull into traffic at interstate speed. Had radio info center repalced under warranty once.

Had this for 3 years no real issues

My G6 2005 has 120,000 miles on it. Up til now I have only had to replace the tire, brakes, and battery. All of these things are due to be changed at its age. Tomorrow I am replacing a tie rod and a Control arm, both considered to be a wearable item. Given its mileage I think that there replacement is a no issue. I have no complaints other than the featureless radio and built in Info center. At 120, 000 miles my car still drives, looks, feels like new. I have a future plan to change out the stereo and say good by to the info display. I have in the past changed the transmission fluid, and I will do a spark plug and belt change all thing due at 100,000.

I bought my G6 in March and have put 3k on it so far. I bought it with 94k, and only had one owner who replaced pretty much everything that goes out at that high of mileage. I've had zero problems since I've bought it except my windshield cracked and I had to replace it. It's got all the features, 3.6L V6 engine, monsoon stereo, 6 CD changer, fog lights, power pedals, chrome wheels, etc. Definitely a head turner. It's a very sporty fun car for a daily commute. It's my first nice car I've ever owned and I'd definitely recommend for someone who is looking for a nice, cheap, sporty car.

The first 5 years were great, now it's falling apart!

I have had my 2005 Pontiac G6 GT for more than 5 years now and while I loved the car at first, the last year has been less than ideal. Once the odometer passed 80,000 miles, several expensive repairs popped up, and the future doesn't look bright. Searching the web reveals that I am far from alone with these problems; and GM's recent history from the bailout to Pontiac's untimely demise makes it all the more frustrating. While it's a nice looking car, and fairly fun to drive, the reliability seems like it will be a serious issue as the car ages, and there are safer, better performing, and more reliable options from the Germans and Japanese...

Garbage. Please do NOT buy!

I got this car from a local dealership closeby back in early Sep/2011. I loved it. It was the nicest car I've ever had. Has everything! 2 weeks later, electronic accel control goes out and the radio reads 'engine power reduced' Got that fixed. 1 week later it happens again. dealer says it was a faulty part so they fixed it. 2 weeks ago I noticed that when I press the brakes on the highway the car shakes horribly. Dealer says the alignment is good. Then last week I pull into aco-workers driveway, and the yellow wrench light comes on and says low coolant. Checked coolant and no problems. Right on the full line. Now today from coming out from wal-mart, starter seized. DONT buy this car! LEMON!!

I'll NEVER buy a Pontiac again.

I've driven this car for 5 years, so I know what I'm talking about. My car has 70K miles on it, and I've had more problems with this car than ANY car I've ever owned. Essentially, everything under the hood has had to be replaced. Today they told me that my transmission is OUT, and I dont push or pull ANYTHING! Electronic steering is out, electrical problems GALORE, brakes are crap and constantly have to be replaced. (keep in mind, all of my miles are HIGHWAY miles ONLY!) I dont speed, dont drive crazy. I can say it's definitly pretty to look at and thats it. Even my seats are squeaky, so is the dash. Its horrible. Dont buy this car.

Never buying american made again.

I purchased one and all I have to say I will never buy a GM vehicle ever again. Im always on top of any maintenance and im not a crazy driver, this car has been a money pit, something breaks on it every 5000 miles, im on my third engine, and have had nothing but problems with the rest of the drive train. For the amount ive put in, to keep it going I could have bought a new car. next car will be a honda after seeing what American made can do. now I see why GM has had such low sales over the years.

Great First Car!

Bought mine in June 2010 for my first car, it had 81,600 miles on it, I've had it two months and it's been great! and I don't drive it easy, its ramped a ditch and hit a field and nothing broke at all! my only complaint is the sunroof randomly opens as it pleases, and sometimes when it start it keep turning over instead of catching, but no big deal! I'm 6'2" and i have the seat only 1/2 way back and it adjust so that my head doesn't hit the ceiling. I always get compliments on the exterior of it, and that's always nice too:)

I love my G6! I've had it for 5 years now. It's at 75,000 miles and has not had any major problems whatsoever! The styling is beautiful, both inside and out! My only minor complaints about the interior are that the leather is fading a bit on the left-side edge of the driver's seat (I must sit extra hard on that side) and some of coloring on the radio dials is starting to fade just a tad. Mechanically speaking, it's been a great car! Lately, I've had an odd sound when braking, got it fixed before brake pads were adjusted or something, but now the noise has returned. But it's apparently no cause for concern. Despite these minor flaws, though, it's been a great car and is very fun to drive!

This was the first brand new car I've ever purchased and overall I've had nothing but headaches with it. The first thing to go was the stereo wiring within the first year, which was fixed under warranty. Then at 62,000 miles the timing chain in my engine broke. Thankfully a call placed to the GM customer center got my engine replaced for free even though the original warranty had expired. Last year I received a safety recall on it for brake light & cruise control issues, had that fixed and now a year later, I'm experiencing the same issues again with the brake lights. The only reason I've kept it this long is that the engine now is pretty new and it's almost paid for.

We bought this car brand new with 12 miles on it, then we had to take it to the dealership twice with a problem of power steering going out, when we told them the doors leaked, they told us they could not help that, it was a problem that would take time due to not having parts. Within the next couple of weeks she got a letter in the mail that said an ignition starter had to be replaced. The car is still a pain in the butt, when it's raining the top lights leak the doors leak into the floor board, and currently I'm in the market for a new car because, i went to the dealership for the same power steering problem, and now the ABS box is fried. Do not purchase one. Worst decision we made!

I bought this car used with about 48,000 and am now at 118,000. I have had no major issues with this car. There are certain things that annoy me though. Occasionally if I insert the key and start the car right away it stalls. I call the dealership and they said that was "normal." As a result of that I have adapted to turning the key to ACC and letting the car "prepare" for a few seconds and then starting the car. Also the Cd changer reads "Cd changer error" at random times. If you need new brakes get them fast. Otherwise it feels as though the car can't support it's own weight! Other than that I have greatly enjoyed this car. I have taken many successful road trips and always get looks....

This car was great in the beginning, well maintained, but consistent front suspension rattling (repaired, but still exists) had to replace intake manifold, catalytic converter and now instrument panel cluster that controls gas gauge, tach etc. I called gm and the "violin" was playing. I work for gm (25 yrs.) and they do build quality products, but they forgot the most important word. "reliability." Just go to technical services bulletins and you will find all the problems. I've had too many problems that shouldn't be. Come on gm, listen to us or you'll lose me and others to you know who!

I bought this car in November of 2008. One month later it was in the shop for a leak in the sunroof. I opened my car door only to find the floorboards in the front SOAKED with about an inch of water. Took the dealership two times and about two weeks with leaving my car there to find out it was the sunroof leaking. Also the lights on the dash and cd player flashed on and off and the cd player would stop working about every other week. About two months after I bought it, I started it one day and my wheel was completely locked up. I had to re start my car in order for it to be okay again but no check engine light came on. Now a year later I am having power steering and vibrating issues

I bought my car used and had a 60 day warranty with it. When I first bought it the power steering was a little rough so they fixed that. Then I had to take it in 3 times after that because it would shake real bad on the highway. On the third time they told me my tires were wearing unevenly. I bought new ones. I've had to replace them and later had to replace them again. Now I'm on my second year and it still is shaking real bad. It is to the point I am scared of driving it. It makes a loud clunking noise in the front when I'm going around 55. I can't wait until I can afford to get rid of it. I used to love Pontiac but I'm kinda glad they don't make them anymore. I'm disappointed.

We bought the car with only 20k miles on it and when we bought it we did not like the idea of buying another Pontiac because of our previous 1996 Pontiac Grand Am. Basically the Grand Am was just renamed and remodeled into a G6 and still had the same reliablity issues.. So far, we have had the usual Pontiac tranmission replacment, steering column replaced and still having popping issues, cd player broken, keyless entry stopped working (even after replacing battery inside the remote), power steering failing while driving, constant brake issue and rotor warping. This car is fun to drive its not all bad, but Pontiac just covered their issues with a new body style. no improvement.

Will never buy Pontiac again!!!!

When I first saw this car, I had to have it. It was sporty, roomy, and a good affordable price. Well, you get what you pay for!!! I have had to bring it in the shop several times....a ball joint and power steering column replacement, random lights bulbs go out all the time, keyless entry failed all of a sudden, belt replacement, shock replacement. I mean come on!!! The car isn't even that old. Might I add that I purchased the model with the panoramic sunroof...what a piece of crap. The noisiest ride ever. It is so loud I can barely stand it. I think it was cheaply made...looks good from the exterior, but runs like a cheap go-cart!! Thank god i bought an extended warranty

I will miss this car.

I can't believe all the bad reviews of the G6 GT. I bought my car with 11k miles and am selling it with 61k. I have had no major problems whatsoever. I have loved this car. I am only getting rid of it because I need something bigger to haul twin babies. The G6 has been reliable, consistent, fun, and a car I have been proud to own. The gas mileage is incredible. I averaged well over 30 mpg on the highway. I only wish I could convince my husband to sell his truck so I could keep my car.

I purchased this car in 2005 new. Now it has 107,230 miles. It has been a great car. Mine has the 4 panel sunroof, which I love. The 6 CD in- dash 300 Watt stereo is really nice. Mine is metallic silver, which shines like a new dime in the sunlight. The performance is great! 200 HP with plenty of torque. The gas mileage is 36-38 at 60 MPH. To and from work in traffic I receive 24-26 MPG. The car is the perfect size and has plenty of room for everything. I need to get the 100,000 mile tune-up, but it runs fine. I have only had to replace the tires and oil. I am sick that Pontiac is going to quit making this car.

I bought my Pontiac G6 almost 2 years ago & absolutely loved it. My husband is 6'9" & could fit in it nicely, loved the sporty feel of it but you can't drive fast with the windows down because of the loud humming noise. About 6 months after, we began our many trips to the dealership for new struts, squeaky driver seat and now lower control arm and ball joint on both sides & swaybar. I'm very thankful I bought an extended warranty. I have always owned GM vehicles but with the problems I've had with this car and the trouble I've had with more than one GM dealership, I will NEVER buy GM again and my grandfather and mother-in-law both retired from GM. This car was my worst purchase in my life!

I've driven my G6 for 9 months now, and it's good and bad. It has some power, but the mileage isn't as good as the competition. The interior is poorly made, most of the buttons do not display their purposes anymore. Electrical issues for practically the whole time I've owned it.

I got my 2005 g6 last night. Even in this short amount of time I have noticed several things. I am no stranger to gm I had an Aztek before this car and the Aztek was a GREAT car. As far as this g6 goes I'll have to agree with many of you on several things. First being the rattle..When you go over a speed bump it sounds like my tires are going to spin off. It creaks and moans like an old house when driving. Yes, the sunroof is awesome but i just hope it won't leak and that was one of my firsts questions , I was advised that I had nothing to worry about when in fact I'm still almost certain I'll have water inside my car.

This site's reviews have really helped us find the right vehicle for us to purchase next, so I thought I would weigh in on the car we already have. I love driving the G6, it's a lot of fun and handles great. Great acceleration, turning radius, handling. The interior has way more room than it looks! We've had several guys over 6' tall ride in the backseat with plenty of room to spare. Had it almost 5 years and reliability's been great. Even with several cross-country trips, it still drives great.

Like most of the reviews, my G6 was bought new. It rattles, shakes so bad that I am afraid to drive it. Sun roof leaks and rattles. The interior design is very cheap. I also bought a new Grand Prix two months later, big difference. My lease expires next month and I am sure I will get boned my GMAC with them having to fix all of the broken crap that should have never failed in the first place. What a cheap piece of junk.

Purchased our G6 in Dec. 2005 and had the brakes repaired twice under warranty. Now the front calipers are grabbing and causing rotors to overheat. Have a huge vibration problem on the exhaust when accelerating. Had the brake light come on and added brake fluid only to be told by mechanic I shouldn't have done that as it throws off the electronic sensor and they had to flush the hydraulic system out and put in measured amount of fluid to make sure it is accurate. For only 45,000 miles we have put a lot of money into service on this car. We are very disappointed with GM and will probably think twice about purchasing another GM product. They need to get their act together on quality.

After buying All GM vehicles for my driving career of 36 years, I am very disappointed with my G6 GT . The styling and gas mileage are great but the build quality is awful. Currently with 59000 miles I have moisture inside the headlights , A broken drivers seat, deteriorating leather , broken hood release handle , and a bicycle caused 1100.00 damage to the left front fender which now rubs on the drivers door when opening. This is a very cheaply built car. Pontiac owes us G6 owners an additional credit toward a next car. I have never seen such horrible workmanship on a GM product.

Purchased my Pontiact G6 new. Loved the look but disappointed in workmanship. Was back at dealer during the 3 year warrenty period many times. 4 Paneled sunroof took several trips to dealer to fix major rattle. Kept the car a week. 3 years later roof rattles again. Check engine light comes on about every 6 months. Changed sensors several times.Plastic parts on doors, windows constently rattle. Stereo speakers needed replacement. Biggest problem is with steering on cold days. Recall work done has not solved it. Love the car but Pontiac needs to get their act together and stand behind their workmanship! I might have to buy Japanese cars next time if they don't get their act together!

I bought a used G6 GT last March and have had nothing but problems with car. First the paint started to chip off the car. Then the break lights started to work opposite (not consistently) which made it almost impossible to have fix. I ended up buying a new BCM (600.00 computer) at 34K. After this, my CD changer broke and I had that replaced. I also replaced the brake pads and both outer tierods and tires (which wore out because of the tierods). Now the power shifts when the car is driving. The lights on the dash will surge to the radio and the rest of the vehicle. The radio will also shift from one side to the other. All in 10 months.

I traded in the SUV and bought this car for a high mileage commute. I could not fit comfortably in the sub compact models available at the time and ended up purchasing a used G6. I have put 70,000 miles on my G6 since July of 07. I bought the vehicle with the driver package (XM, 6 way seat, fog lights, power pedals). I drive mainly open interstate and get about 29 MPG average which I think is pretty good based on the size and power of the vehicle. I have had the car in the shop for warranty fixes on the XM radio and the electric power steering (69 k almost missed factory warranty extension for this known problem). I currently have 96k miles on the vehicle and have had no other problems.

I'm at the end of a 3 year lease on my G6. The car has, at times, been quite fun to drive but at others it has been completely maddening. I've already replaced the rack & pinion once, the 6 cd changer once, and the brakes have been problematic from the start, from squeals to shudders. Electrical issues are popping up now, and I just hit 27k on my car. This car drives and handles like a dump truck. Replacing the stock tires with helped, but not completely. Car has been to the dealer several times but nobody wants to find out what is causing the suspension/brake issues. Won't buy GM for a while, and I've been a fan all my life.

Had for Sunfires and son totaled the one that was paid off. Needed a car and was glad I stepped up to the G6. After reading many reviews I can agree with most all. Love it and fun to drive; drove across Canada 5 times. As well experienced many of the problems - Electric steering had to be replaced (warranty), brakes need new rotors, or at least turned spring and fall. I do myself so more just a pain. During the winter the inside of the windshield freezes. Oil changes have been regular when told by the info center; about every 7000 miles. No problems driving in heavy snow (Canadian 30 cm - about 12 inches) with OEM tires. Many 4x4's were getting stuck; might be more driving ability.

Also the radio not being on with start of car which resets all my info in the radio. For you that don't own, one your oil life, trip mileage, temp, time, security items, set radio stations and many more things. Also had the deal check my shocks, struts and brakes again. car sounds like it will fall apart when i hit bumps in road. i know i did not buy a expensive car but come on Pontiac take pride in your cars. All this and on 38,000 miles on it now. going to buy a Ford Fusion next month.

I bough my car about 5 months ago and Loved it. I researched the G6 for months before my purchase and test drove many. I owned a Grand Am GT1 previous to this that I absolutely loved. I found out one thing with this car that has sent me looking for another... it's horrible in the winter. I have never had so many issues or problems driving in the snow until I got this car. I have had one accident that could have been worse then it was due to the no T/C or ABS being on the car. I thought when purchasing that ABS was a standard feature, boy was I wrong. I am now doing what I can to trade the car in on something with a better braking system and that I feel safe driving.

I'm a 19 year old male in college, my first car was a 97' Grand Am GT-had nothing but problems with, got rid of after 2 1/2 years! I was at the Pontiac dealership yet again with my Grand Am and the G6 caught my eye from the sales lot, mainly the price tag, $14,995 with only 8,720 miles Certified! I test drove it and drove it home the next day! I find it very comfortable considering I'm 6'4" even with 5 people in the car and it still has plenty of pick-up. I drive about 100 miles a day, mostly highway and average 25 mpg @ 75 mph w/ the 3.5L V6 which was the only way I would get one. It is responsive with plenty of power, a smooth, quiet ride and great handling

I bought my G6 just 3 days ago. I bought it used I might add and got a really great deal on it. Whomever owned it prior took great care of it. It looks brand new and has 26500 miles on it. I was sad to trade in my beloved Mustang, but as my kids are teens now and my son is almost 6 foot, sadly I had no choice as he was scrunched in the back seat. I also own a 96 Pontiac Sunfire with 145,000 miles on it and still kicking. So I know how good Pontiacs are. They are reliable that's why I bought the G6. It is a sharp looking sedan too and I am thus far glad I bought it, even if it was used. It's got a lot of pep for a sedan which is nice being I owned the Mustang prior. Also handles like a dream

I will not buy another G-6 Pontiac, because of all the problems I have had with it! The body style allows the sand from the road to sand blast the lower parts of the car, especially the flare on the rear quarters! Had it painted at 17,000, and now at 35000, it is the same as it was! Have had the brakes worked on 3 times, and again another problem with them! Have contacted GM, and they just as much said sorry about that, we will not buy it back!They need a new design, or some type of lowers body protection! Plus a larger brake disc and pads!

My old 93 Grand Prix had 130k on it and it was time for something new. I needed another car with a little kick, V6 and something I'd love driving for my daily 50 mile commute to work. I already have a sports car, so I didn't need a V8, but I wanted something w/ a little puch to it. I had good luck with my Grand Prix so I gave the G6 a look. I've had the car for about 5 months, put on 8K already on it and I love it the more I drive it. Engine creeps up on you and before you know it your doing 80 w/o breaking a sweat. Great seats, like the interior layout and info center. Sporty looking style for a 4 door. Surprisingly good room in back seat and I get 26-28 mpg with good power. Great car.

At 6'4" I love this car. Tilt and telescoping steering wheel have come in handy. My shorter daughter loves the 6 way seat. I rarely use the air (temp has to be 90+) because it is so nice to tool down the road with the roof open. This car is the most neutral car to drive. No over or understeer. Upgrade the tires from the OEM and you have a great sports car. I don't car for the driver info center being incorporated in the radio. You can't upgrade the radio. Gas mileage is 26.3 for the life of the car and on trips to Florida we have 30mpg+ at 80mph, Wow. If you have a heavy foot at lights expect to get under 25mpg.

I bought this car used about a month ago and smile every time I look at it. It is very fun to drive and the steering is so light you can turn it with one finger. There is enough acceleration for me and still gets in the high 20s for gas mileage. I also like how it is so quiet even at speeds above 70. I live in central Minnesota so the remote start and traction control is a great option to have. The sound system is great even for being the base system. The driver information center is a nice feature, it has avg speed, mpg, oil life, and others. The back seat is enormous even for taller people. This is a great car and if you need a sporty car that is very reliable this is it.

The side mirrors and rearview mirror are needed a little more than on most cars, but if you can drive you can handle it. I would not trade this car for anything. I have had no problem with it. I drive it without abusing it. My family is constantly calling it the "show car" because I am washing it every week. I would recommend this car if you want reliability and most of all fun. We are all tall in my family and all have enough room in it. Great sound system also. Fantastic 8 speaker stereo system. Pontiac really got it together with this car. I hope they keep making it. My next car will be a G6.

This car is horrible it has spent more time in the shop than out on the road. Brakes replaced twice, electrical system needed to be re-wired, gears in steering column replaced, and now a problem with the anti-theft system. This car is noisy (rattles) and badly constructed interior (as far as position of instruments). Seats are made of horrible material that does not wear well (single business women who weighs 115 lbs, so driver's seat should not be falling apart). Dealership hates to service car. I hate driving it, cant wait until it is paid off so I can get rid of it!

I reviewed cars for months before I got into the G6. I've owned it now 16 months and I have to say its the first car I've had this long that I still like. Generally I get bored fast and want something new. It recently snowed in Seattle and I found the TC to be a royal pain. It wouldn't let me speed up to get the momentum to get up the hill. The TC kept coming on and my tires kept spinning. When I turned the TC off.. still couldn't make it up. Recently my windshield freezes on the inside. When the sunroof is open IT IS SO LOUD, almost not worth having it I've seen others complain about a bouncing speedometer and I've also had this problem took it to the dealer and they didn't find anything

This car by far the nicest design concept for a Pontiac sedan. the exterior is aerodynamic where it needs to be and has a good ground stance. the engine is responsive and powerful for a 3500 cc engine and the wheels have good traction. the only thing this vehicle needs (well actually gm needs) is to get rid of the amount of plastic the interior has. but overall the interior is roomy and comfortable.

I bought a silver '05 G6 STD sedan 18 months ago and haven't had a problem with it yet. The fuel economy is great, even though I only have the 4- speed automatic. The car drives and handles great-both in the city here in Washington, DC and on the highway on my way out to the beach or to Pittsburgh. When I first bought it, I couldn't stop staring at it. I still get compliments on the car's styling. If you're looking for something that looks great, is practical and economical, you've got to test drive this car. One note: I should have gotten the XM radio option. I had to retrofit an aftermarket unit, which doesn't look as clean as if I would have just gotten the optional radio.

I consistently get 25 mpg city and 34+ highway; I got around 18 city in a 4 cyl Beetle. Very spacious and comfy. Handles great and it's very fun to drive. Doesn't feel like a sedan at all.

The monsoon sound system is great & the information center is very informative. I like how the interior was layed out, with soft touch material everywhere & very roomy & I compared it to other vehicles in its group & they had hard plastics & small inside. The car's suspension is very good & corners without sceeching the tires. The leather interior is well thought out & great looking. I like the exterior styling with slick looking lines which makes it look sporty. The six way power seat, telescoping, & tilt steering makes it comfortable to drive.

I've owned my 2005 Pontiac G6 for 19 months and it has lived up to its billing as a car that is fun, economical, and dependable. If it has one drawback it is that you have to get used to using the side view and side mirrors when backing up because of the "chopped style" design, but I wouldn't trade that away to compromise on its great look.

this is with out a doubt the best car we've owned. my wife wanted a nissan altima but i looked at both and thought overall the g6 offered the most bang for the buck. my wife liked it also but thought that because she didn't see that many out on the road meant it wasn't a good car. i explained that this model hadn't been out very long. i finally rented an altima for her to see how she liked it. that took care of her doubt. this car drives wonderfully. smooth and quiet. feels like it has more than 205 hp. transmission is perfectly matched to the 3.5l v6. powerful at all speeds. i personaly like the different plastics they used in the interior they're easily cleaned. interior looks good longer.

I made the horrible mistake of purchasing this car 6-7 months ago. It was pre-owned with only 16k miles. . . BIG MISTAKE, HUGE! Aesthetically, it is a dream, really cute, but if you need more that cute, this is not the car. Power steering intermittently locks up,transmissions has delayed response, horrible handling, noisy sun roof. Learned today the car has a bum cooling system that leaks. I have been at the dealership so much I should be getting benefits or something. Save yourself time, trouble, money and lost time from work. . .DO NOT BUY A PONTIAC G6. I swear I bought a prototype or maybe Pontiac should still be considered a neophyte car manufacturer

I had owned a 2002 Honda Accord and was not ahppy with the new design change so decided to look at other makes. I had almost made the decision to go with a Toyota Solara when we stumbled upon the G6, I ended up getting a lot more car for the money, love the 6 cylinder and the best part is it gets better gas mileage than my 4 cylinder Accord did! Fun to drive, lot of get up and go. Only disappointment is they cheaped out on the plastic inside, you can tell it's not the quality that Honda makes but for $6000 less I am not complaining, plus I trade every 2-3 years so not worried about it I am always under warranty. LOVE the G6!

Last week, I traded in my '05 Acura RSX for a '05 v6 G6 std. sedan. It only had 2,842 miles on it. In comparing the two, I really like the G6 a whole lot better. Interior fit and finish is actually better than the Acura (I was surprised by squeaks and rattles in the RSX). Exterior F & F is close, but not quite there. I'm getting 31MPG in mixed suburban driving and 34MPG @85mph on the highway. My RSX got 33/36mpg. I have a hell of a lot more room and an AT. G6 Radio reception BLOWS away the Acura as does the sound quality (both have six speaker systems). The G6 handles well, but not as tight as the RSX, which was actually “work” to drive. G6 steering is a touch vague against the RSX.

great car!

I've only owned it a week and I love it. I formally had a Bonneville and I loved that also. There is a lot of head room in the G6, more even than in the Bonniville. Gas mileage is better and it is a smooth riding car. I had my son and son-in-law in the car with me and they are both over 6 feet, they said there was plenty of room.

I purchased a new G6 in early 2005. It is very sporty looking and I get lots of comments on the appearance. Appearance aside, I have had nothing but problems out of the car. It was in the shop within the first two weeks having a new amp installed because the original quit working. The drivers side sunvisor broke, the cupholder in the backseat broke, the automatic lock on the passengers door did not work and had to be fixed, a clicking sound on the drivers door was fixed, a new starter was installed, and the sunroof had to be fixed because of a constant rattle. Purchasing this car has definitely made me decide to never purchase another Pontiac again.

Is the G6 a foreign clone? GM did this one right! Power, comfort, quality control and affordability rolled up in a single vehicle. My G6 consistently exceeds the 32 mpg highway mileage on interstate trips. Lots of interior space and comfort for a vehicle that stickers for under $24K with all the appointments (sunroof, xm, and a V-6).

This is a wonderful car to drive and the price is inexpensive for the quality that you get. It could be easily be compared to a honda accord but it is bigger and more comfortable. If you are looking to purchase a great midsize, it is well worth your time to look at the pontiac g-6.

I bought this car in september 05 on the employee pricing program. I got rid of my Mustang for this car. Although this car doesn't feel as powerful as the mustang when accelerating, I find it way more fun to drive. It hugs corners very well, it has plenty of power, smooth comfy ride on the highway and a has way more interior room than the mustang. Also, as a bonus, this car should be much better for Canadian winter Driving! I love the interior, very sporty and modern. The seats are the most comfortable I have ever had. I am getting great fuel mileage, about 25mpg mixed driving. I have about 2500 Km on this car in just 3 weeks because I can't stop driving it! Great Car!

This was the first car in a while that was mine. I wanted a convertible, my wife did not. We settled on the Panoramic sunroof. Wonderful. The feel of a convertible without the intense sun. The auto stick is fun. I average around 27 mpg overall. The red with the chrome wheels sets it off. The leather seats are comfy. The monsoon radio is great, even with all windows down and top open. The A/C is cold and the car is very comfortable. Best of all it is a blast to drive. It is noticed by everyone and just looks sharp

I've had my G6 since January and its got almost 20k miles on it. I have had my fair share of problems but for the most part its been great. The major problem is the car doesnt start right most of the time and when you hit 5000+ RPMs the engine screams, literally. Everything else was just small stuff that either got fixed at the dealership or just went away on its own. They need different tires or something, i went to the dealership and they told me the tires need to be replaced within 10k miles, somethings up with that. Anyways the car is a blast to drive, its got every option but the bigger sunroof. Its go really crappy gas milage i found out, im lucky if i get 20mpg.

It drives like no other sedan on the road today. It does not handle like a sedan in the sense that you have to pay attention to what you are doing, and in this day of people yapping away on a cell phone this could be a blessing. It fun to drive and I find myself driving more than I used to drive. The cosmetics of the interior are uninspired with the notable exception of the gauge cluster. Acceleration is crisp and the sport shift 4-speed is just plain fun. The seats are comfortable for long trips or the short hop to the grocery store, but are forewarned, space in the boot is cramped. Two thumbs up, Pontiac finally put some excitement back into their basic grocery getter.

I never thought of owning anything but top of the line Chrysler, my previous vehicle being a 1996 LHS, leather interior, etc. However, I had sore knees from them being against the dash all the time because I am so short. I love how the pedals and the steering wheel come to me on the Pontiac G6 and I can now drive in complete comfort with my legs and arms outstretched. I love the way it handles and its sporty look. After 20 years with the Chrysler dealership out of town, I am now converted to a dealer in my own town who showed me this great little GT and let me drive it - well, one like it. Loved it so much, had the dealer trade for one in a neighboring town (they had none left).

I bought this car in March '05, and already have 7200 miles on it. I just love the look of the car - I bought a black one, so it really stands out with the chrome wheels. So far, it has gotten fairly good gas mileage (32 mpg highway, and around 27/28 city). As far as ride goes, it is a lot smoother than my previous car ('01 Grand Am GT), and I feel safer in it. The only issues I've noticed so far are in the driver and passenger doors. The door panels seem to be a little loose, as you can hear a slight (annoying) vibration when you go over bumps in the road, or when you are listening to certain songs with more bass. And the driver's side door sometimes sounds like it is not closed.

This is a fun car!

I was attracted by the design and the fact that it is GM. I guess I want GM to succeed. I looked at all the similar Japanese models & domestics, even looked at a LaCrosse. This is a replacement for my '00 Intrigue that I loved, so the LaCrosse seemed about just right. After 3 wks I have over 2200 mi. on the G6 and I have no major complaints about it so far. With GM employee discount, $1K for being an Olds owner, & points on my GM card, I paid about $20K for this G6 GT that had a sticker price of about $28K. I hope after 30K mi., I'm not disappointed. Time will tell. The dealer experience was great; they went out of their way to find me the exact car I wanted, brought it from 200 mi. away.

You'll do well with this car as it is not overly expensive and has very good fit and finish for a Pontiac. It's a sharp handling car and it has enough power so that you feel you can punch it once in a while. Compared to an Accord, it certainly looks better, has a V6 instead of a 4 cyl for the same price and has a ton more options. XM Radio is a nice feature. Side Airbags are a must and mine has them. OnStar was included as well.

The panoramic roof is way too cool and actually works quite well. Tall folks may hit their head in the back. The monsoon sound system is pretty decent for factory rig.

Was killing time and went to see the G6. Drove it about 15 miles and bought it. Had been driving a 4 cyl., 5 speed, 2004 Honda Accord, which is a fine car. But, the only edge the Accord has on the G6 is in the gas milage dept. Got an excellent "out the door" price on the G6 ($18,500, tax included). Like its appearance, handling and pep and the extras thrown into a pretty basic package. Got a sun roof, a super sound system, a 6 disc CD player.

Roomy (I'm 6'4"), really quick but great gas mileage (last car was an SUV), handles really well, great features but not 'gadgety,' very driver oriented, and great styling. I would recommend this car to anyone in a second. No joke, my calendar was booked for 2 weeks with people from work who wanted me to take them out to lunch so they could check out the car. They all loved it too.

I paid $15,700 for this car with employee discount and crazy rebates. All in all, a great new car for a price range in which I was only finding 40-60,000 mile 3.5L Altimas. Engine powerful, but needs a little more oomph against competition. "Touring" suspension in base models make car feel bigger than it is, only reason to pay more for GT. Overall the ride is very good. "Value leader" automatic brings back memories of my Olds Intrigue, not really a sporty feel. Back seat looks huge. Body styling looks import inspired, slightly generic but very sharp. Fit and finish seem great, especially for the price range. Something a little different from GM, and I've had a lot of GM cars.

The comfort and gas milage was the most suprising. I am 6'3" and get in and out with ease. We made a trip of over 2000 miles and could not have ask for more comfort. We previously has a grand prix and the g6 compares to it.

Awesome G6

Fell in love with this car from the first time I saw it. Exterior lines, interior design and chrome-type instrumentation leave top-of-the-line impession normally reserved for $45,000 cars and up. 200 horsepower with 22/32 gas mileage is unbelievable and so far after 600 miles is right on target. Interior lighting/electronic controls enhance night driving . . . luxurious yet functional effect all around. Just can't say enough about this car; don't miss my "baby" Firebird at all (feel guilty I'm not driving it more but it's just a classic backup for me now). Recommend you step up and enjoy a whole new adventure in driving. Way to go GM!!!

I love my G6

My G6 is my favorite car thus far that I have ever owned. My G6 is fun to drive and I look for excuses to jump in and take off. I origionally went in to look at the Grand Prix and was very impressed with it, however, I drove the G6 and found it was a car I had to have. I got a great deal on it and have thoroughly enjoyed it ever since.

G6 driving experience is great, firm and confortable ride, engine has more than enough power, transmission shifts very smoothly, very quiet and great looking interior, instruments very well placed, car interior space is immense, exterior style is eye catching, i previously owned a 2001 grand am, the g6 is such an improvement over the grand am.

The first impression I had was how quiet this car is. With less than 200 miles on it, we took it on a 300 mile trip. I could'nt believe a car that weighs 3400 lbs. could get 32mpg! This car is roomy and has every option imaginable, with the exception of a built in garage door transmitter. I have yet to discover any defects, inside or out. Handles well and has good performance. I could'nt be happier.

Very reliable and fun to drive. I have to drive 20 miles to work one way and needed to upgrade from an 8 mpg truck. The new G6 has gone above and beyond my expectations by getting over 22 mpg on the streets and I personally have seen over 40-55 mpg on the highway!!! The 6 speaker sounhd system on the G6 is incredible for a stock system, but 2 more speakers would be nice in the rear doors to make it surround sound.. XM radio free for 3 months, and I will be keeping it too. The in-dash cd player is a welcomed convenience in a mid- sized sedan. I love the factory remote start. My opinion of the Pontiac G6 is that GM made an awesome mid-size car suitable for a big guy like me.

I really like my new G6. I also own a 02' Grand Am GT. I still like the Grand Am but the G6 rides smoother, handles better, has more power, is more comfortable, and just seems to have a higher level of build quality. Im a manufacturing engineer and I look for all the little mistakes people make when they bolt, weld or snap parts together - so far I can't pick out any issues on my G6. My drive to and from work just got a lot better.

I am thrilled with the combination of comfort inside and sporty styling outside. The car is loaded and under $30K. The interior feels roomy and very comfortable front and back. The head room in the back is not as generous, but a small price to pay to get the cool panoramic roof. You could get picky with it could have this or that, but I think you would have to jump-up to $40k to get it. They got it right.

The car seems to be pretty good. I traded a 2001 honda EX 6cyl for it. My biggest complaint is that there is no light in the glove box (shame on you G.M.). I also do not like the high performance tires. I will be lucky to get 15,000 miles out of them. And they make high sounds when you hit any little thing on the road. The trunk popper is very user unfriendly. The steering is a bit unusual. In Florida we really don't need heated seats. That could have been an option. All in all, I like the car and time will tell the rest.

I will admit to being partial to GM and in many cases that is grounds to discount my comments, however, I have driven many cars and the G6 is a superb vehicle by any measure. In comparison, my fathers 05 Camry is generic, plain and in some cases cheaper feeling. The G6 will impress anyone, if given a chance. The design inside and out is elegant and well proportioned.

This is a new mid size line that we found to be excellent for driving in the city and on freeways. There is more than adequate room and comfort for each passenger and everything for the individual driver is adjustable for his/her comfort, ability to see speedometer and gauges, and pedal reach. Very economical to drive with the assistance of a drivers information center, we are getting 24mpg in city conditions. It handles very well on any road condition we have experienced to date. This car is very well designed and there is no loss of head room in the back seat with the normal sun roof. We are very pleased with the G6 GT.

Competent and looks good.

This car flat out looks good, and more importantly looks better than most of the competition, save the Altima. The V6 has good enough power for most use outside of drag racing, and the interior looks a lot better in person than it does in pictures. Handling is good for a midsize sedan, and braking is a non-event, which is a good thing. Seat comfort is very good for long trips with just the right amount of hardness in the seats. Backseat legroom is quite good, and without the panoramic sunroof, most 6 footers won't feel like you're subjecting them to torture in the back seat. The stereo on the GT is fantastic- 8 speakers, and some of the best sound in it's class.

I love the styling of this vehicle. It has good crisp lines and the color i bought, stealth gray, is easy to keep clean and looking great. Driving in the colorado mountains has been a delight with this vehicle. It climbs right up the mountain for me. Being a short legged person, i especially like the controls that bring the brake and gas pedal up to me rather than having to sit on top of the steering wheel to drive. Overall, i am very pleased with the vehicle.

This G6 is the best car i have ever had. It is really fun to drive. When you step on the gas then the other cars should just say bye-bye. The interior is the nicest and most creative there is out there. If your ready for a new car or ready for a change in your life, then the G6 is just right for you. And let's not forget that sunroof. What more is there to say about that sunroof. So if you want to stand out and let people notice you then do what you have to do to get this G6.

This is my wife's car but I drive it every chance I get. This is our 8th Pontiac, and I would rate it the best. No body side molding, 17 inch wheels make for excellent cornering and panoramic roof is a lot of fun. I'm 6'2 and it has more than adequate leg room. It looks fairly small from the outside but the cabin is quite large. Adjustable pedals and telescoping steering wheel would make it hard for anyone not to find a comfortable driving position.

I did a lot of research before i bought this car. I acutally gave up a cadillac dhs for this car and am glad i did. This is a great looking car and is pure fun to drive. The stereo is better than what i had in the cadillac but i love the panoramic sunroof the best. The sunroof moves quickly and easily. Acceleration is great and the trunk room is unbelievable. I just took my first trip in my new g6 and got 30.2 Mpg. Back to the stereo-it is loud and crisp and beats the bose i had. Someone put a lot of thought into designing this car. Fun, fun, fun, is what this car is.

Awesome Car. Just purchased the G6 GT and can't stop driving it. I was not a fan of GM vehicles after having worked for them for three years, but was really impressed with the design and specs. Test drove the vehicle and loved it, had to purchase it. The vehicle is very roomy, easy to drive, sleek, sexy and the panoramic roof is awesome. My son loves the vehicle and asks to ride in it all the time. Refuses to even get into our other vehicle an Altima. The G6 also handles very well in slippery conditions, had to swerve in the rain because of an animal in the road on a very rainy day, the vehicle handled well and the traction control stopped skidding.

This is the most fun car to drive I have had in a long time, and we lease two new cars every 2-1/2 to 3yrs. I traded in a 2004 Grand Prix GTP (it was totaled in a wreck) with the super charger, and this G6 is just as fast exept for the high speed passing. Everyone that see's it say they love it, young and old. I am 62 and I love it. I have seen pitcher's of the hard- top converable they are going to make, and when my lease is up on this one I entend to lease a loaded one of them. Everone that see's it just love's it. Everyone that see's the sunroof open ask's to see how it look's in the different posisions.

The G6 is an under-rated GEM.

I went to the car dealership with every intention of leasing a new honda accord. I test drove a fully equipped 2005 EX-4-Cyl Accord. THe car was flawless as I expected, but nothing special and certainly not alot of fun to drive. The high payments blew me away and I told the dealer that just for kicks I wanted to look at a G6. Same dealership sold Pontiac. The moment I drove off in the G6 I wanted it. It's V6 engine blew the doors off the 4-Cyl accord and for $3K less!. It was more fun to drive in every way and infinitely better looking. I test drove the GT model, but opted for the base model which runs circles around the similarly priced Accord. I saved $100 a month and got a better car!

Nothing like it before!

One of the reasons we bought this car is because of the massive discounts GM offered. I don't understand the current trimlines, really (mine is officially called the "6-cylinder"? okay...) but I think this will all make more sense in 2006 once more models and trims appear. Anyway, this car is pretty amazing. We didn't get ABS, and I'm regretting it now, even though the standard tires handle quite well in snow and ice. The dealer had 10 G6s, but none of the base models had ABS or remote start, which was unfortunate. The electric-assist steering is a bit strange at low speeds, sometimes making the wheel light as a feather in the middle of a turn. Otherwise, I have no complaints!

We have only had this car for two months but have thoroughly enjoyed it. A very comfortable car that rides and handles well on both highway and city streets. The 3.5 V6 is more than adequate considering the size of this car. Mileage has been averaging 22 mpg with approximately 33% of all driving on a freeway. The GT model purchased came with almost everything we wanted as standard. Back seats very comfortable with plenty of floor space. Trunk space is large and can be expanded with fold down rear seating. The car is designed with very attractive lines. At this point we are very pleased with our decision to buy it.

This is the most fun in a car I have ever owned. Great looks and awesome performance. I've had mustangs, toyotas, and big trucks. The handling is wonderful. At 110 it felt like 60 and still had room to go. I got the GT with all the extras. Stepping into this automobile is like stepping into a make believe world. I love to drive it. It stops on a dime when needed, corners well and accelerates quickly. I would pay the 25K for this car again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I purchased the g6 gt less than one month ago. It was love at first sight until it was time to parallel park on the streets of New York/New Jersey (which is a must living in the City). After a few left and right turns the wheel suddenly got extremely stiff that it was nearly impossible for my 6'3" 200 lbs husband to turn the steering wheel any further to park properly. Took the car back to the dealer to have it tested and he found the same problem. He contacted GM about problem waiting for a response since it seem to be a manfacture problem. The dealer also test another car but the wheels were not as stiff.

G6 Does Well

I bought my G6 (non-GT) a few months ago now and wanted to express how pleased I am with my purchase. After much shopping and test driving every vehicle of this type (mid size, reasonably priced sedan) this was the first one that I was excited about after the test drive. It is fun to drive, looks good, feels good and the price was competitive. I have had no mechanical issues or other problems.

Pontiac G6-GT - great car

This is a great automobile, considering I only purchased it over a week ago. I previously owned 3 Pontiac Grand-Am's before I purchased this vehicle. The engineering, design, comfort and handling are many steps above the Grand Am, which this automobile replaced. I wouldn't think twice about purchasing this automobile again.

My husband and I started looking at this car before it was available. We finally got to purchase it in Nov. Dealerships in our area didn't receive until then. I will tell you this! IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! We have almost 4000 miles on it already and I still want to just go everywhere and anywhere, just to drive it.

Over 2,000 miles and still happy

No problems so far. Got the GT primarily for the wheels and nicer cloth. My '97 GrandAm had been a great car since new. The 6-way seat with leather doesn't give you much more angle/height adjustability than the 2- way with cloth. I'd like a steeper seat angle adjustment and lower tiltability for the steering wheel, but probably both are by design to prevent the driver being launched OVER the airbag! Thankfully, much less interior chrome (taupe interior) than most supposedly nicer cars. To each their own, but I like its looks inside and out better than GTO or Grand Prix.

Sweet Ride

Since I moved to the Tri-State area, i needed to get rid of my gas hog truck. The new G6 caught my eye, so I took it for a test drive and was blown away. The european design, with the audi style design for the interior, this is one sweet ride. Once in, you are molded into the comfortable leather lumbar seats(heated is a plus). With 200 horses and a auto shift stick that you can red-line, this car has some bite. The tight suspension and the nice rubber is a nice touch when going around those bends at excess speeds. Way to go Pontiac, you have just re-invented the American Sport Seden. We just gotta wait now for all the after market parts, to really ignite this car!

This Car Rocks!

We got rid of an '02 Audi A4Turbo to buy this car and are so glad we did! What a fun car to drive!! Also, a great price considering all of the features that came with the car. It's a smooth ride that's much quieter than the Audi. Glad to be back with GM!

I like the g6 very much.I previously owned a grandam that I also liked. But the g6 I have to say is so much nicer. It is so much better on gas, faster,and has alot more room inside,especially the back. lots more leg room and so much more comfort.I notice a big difference in the quietness of the car inside when i am driving.I would buy this car in a second again. Very fun to drive.

I won this car at the Oprah season premiere. It is an amazing car. I have already put over 3,000 miles on it since I received it just before Thanksgiving. I have a family of five and we all fit very comfortably in it, we have even all gone on vacation already in it. It also is loaded with all kinds of safety features, which is important to me since I have children. The car handles very well in snow and icy road conditions. The back seats fold down to give you more trunk space which is very nice, I fit a very large bookcase in my trunk with no problem. So far I have absolutely no complaints about this vehicle. I love my pontiac G6 GT!!!!

I leased a base G6. To give some background I own a Toyota Highlander, I never thought I'd get a Pontiac, I hate their looks. The G6 looked different so I decided to take a look since I knew I could get a great deal on one compared to a Honda or Toyota. I only have 250 miles on mine but can tell you this. It handles really well and has a quiet and supple ride. It comes well equiped and like the V6. It is sporty enough for me and can handle 2 kids in car seats. It has been fine in the snow belt. My new Consumer Reports rags on this car which isn't fair. I never thought I'd defend a Pontiac but drive one and judge for yourself. I got more bang for the buck which Magazines don't consider.

It's good

All in all the G6 GT is Americas best mid level sports sedan, crisp handling and quick acceleration, very modern dash lay out, very roomy, excellant fuel economy, the manumatic shifter is lots of fun, the sound system is awesome, deep bass and rich highs, I am very pleased with this car, look at same type of import sedans, they pale in comparison to what you get with the G6, the Pontiac G6 is the best thing GM has put out since the Corvette in my opinion

Excellent.

The G6 is an excellent car, the best Pontiac I have ever driven. The interior is comfortable, the seats firm and supportive, controls easy to operate and read. Mine has the 6CD Monsoon system, which sounds and feels magnificent. The engine is top-notch, and the car offers a surprising amount of power. The ride is smooth and very quiet. Passenger room is at a premium. My only issue comes with the electronic steering. It transmits very little feel of the road back to the driver's hands, and is very overboosted at some speeds, while the other day in a parking lot I had almost no boost at all. It's still buggy, I think. Overall, the G6 is a great vehicle.

I did not purchased the GT model because I didn't see the need for the upgraded transmission. If you like doing a lot of shifting then go for the GT model and plan on spending additional 3K. I purchased the one with the panoramic roof and love it. The editoral says the back seat roof clearance is too low but I sat in the back and didn't noticed that much less room for my head. If your over 6 feet tall then, yes you're going to be bumping your head. The interior is very well laid out. Driver controls are all in a good easy to reach. The tilt steering and telescoping column is a welcome feature. The back seat has a lot of leg room. The trunk is larger than my Pontiac GM GT.

Very Nice Car

We love the new G6 GT. We've only put a few hundred miles on it but have a few suggestions, mostly cosmetic. The V-6 needs more guts Dual Exhaust should be standard on the GT I was surprised to find a manual rear view mirror dimmer! With all the whistles and bells why not an auto dimming mirror? The most annoying thing so far...The windshield wipers need new geometry. The passenger side stops right in front of the driver on the upswing and leaves a line of crud/rain/slush right in the center of the driver's view! I love the handling of the car! Over all, If Pontiac continues on this pace they are def headed in the right direction!!!!

This car is fun to drive. Great mileage, good acceleration and cornering. The ride is stiff with some road noise and a little wind noise. The tires take a cold set in cold weather which makes the tires feel like they are out of balance until they warm up after about 5 miles. Have some rattles which the dealer corrected. The electric steering feels a little numb but transmits vibration back to the driver. I expected more from this model.

I'm Impressed!

I'm impressed with my new G6. This is my first Pontiac and I was a little apprehensive in purchasing a first year model. I've had a few first year vehicles that have caused me nightmares. The feel is above my expectations and more! I love driving my new G6 and the LA traffic isn't so bad with the stereo system. I get a lot of approving looks and have been told that it looks like a BMW or some other over priced vehicle. Thanks Pontiac!

I bought my G6 because I wanted a "grown-up" car with bells and whistles that was responsible and safe. I am insurance-cost conscious and I wanted it to be young and fun. I found all of these things in my purchase. It is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time!

The gas mileage is great and the interior setup is user friendly. As a current owner of an 02 Grand Am GT, I find this car much easier to maneuver, better on gas and much more fun to drive. This one's a keeper!

I thought this was a re-make of a Grand Am ot Grand Prix. I was wrong. This car is tight, quiet and performs. A recent roadtrip resulted in 30.9 MPG! The weather was terrible and the car handles fine without the traction control. This car turns heads - most folks think it's a foreign car.

i recently purchased a GT G6 and I have to say that this car is awesome. You step on it and u fly, and with the clutchless manual you can redline it in every gear. The only thing that I have had a problem with so far has been the 6 disc in-dash cd changer. One day it was working fine then I got in my car and went to crank up the tunes and it wouldnt play the cd. CD CHANGER ERROR appeared on the display screen and then when i turned off the car, the stereo remained on. I plan on taking it back to the dealer for under warantee repair ASAP. other then that minor thing, its a fun car.

I like this car!

This is the second Pontiac I have owned. First was a Pontiac Grand Am GT 2 door sport coupe. It was a sporty looking vehicle, but definitely not practicel. The G6GT model offers both sportiness with practicality. Definitely a fun car to drive, handles well and gets good gas mileage. I'm definitely very happy with my decision.

I've been a huge Pontiac buff ever since my first car, 1986 Pontiac 6000 STE, Special Touring Edition, and then I thought Pontiac couldn't outdue themselves until the G6 came my way. This car performs like a BMW, handles the turns like and Audi, I love driving this car, I can't get enough of it. Well done Pontiac, you have another winner under your belt. Any chance of bringing back the 6000, that was a popular car.

The Epsilon foundation is solid and the 17" wheel and tire package is quite stable. The 3.5L is strong off the line and should deliver 25 mpg overall. The seats and build quality of the interior is the best of any Pontiac including the GTO.

Great fuel economy can be found on the 2005 Pontiac G6 GT. This sporty mid- size consistently averages 30 to 32 mpg. The car has plenty of pep when asked and handles the road tight and crisp. The sport suspension is a bit stiff but is expected. The rear seat leg room is spacious and the new panoramic sunroof is an absolute must have option. (It is like driving a convertable with the windows up when the roof is fully opened). The leather seating option includes all the bells and whistles to satisfy even the most demanding buyer. The G6 GT is a pleasure to drive and well worth the price tag of $28,000.00 fully equipped.

G6 is best in class

200HP, a 0-60 time of less than 8 seconds, with a ride usually reserved for much larger vehicles, the Pontiac G6 is a great car. Gone are the days of plastic body- moldings. The G6 is another sign that Pontiac is redefining itself as GM's performance division. Drive the Mazda 6, Jetta, and Altima. Then and only then drive the G6. The G6 will be the clear winner.

Regardless of model, the pontiac delivers a sporty driving experience. Spring for the GT if you are a serious driving enthusiast. Otherwise, you may find the standard V6 more comfortable. It's smooth and very stable.
