Bought my Mazda 3 from this dealership. Buying process was smooth and a great learning experience. Abraham, Oscar, and Anthony are all superb, professional, and friendly associates. They care about my satisfaction, took the time to learn about who we are, take the time to assist and answer any questions I may have with no rush, and made me feel like part of the family. Thus far, highly recommended dealership.I can't say anything about the quality of repair since I have yet to take my car in for a scheduled maintenance, but I'm expecting only the best when coming back for it in 6 months from now.

Bought at 30,000 miles and when slicked up and detailed it looked alright at first and I was hypnotized by the convertible top. I was wanting some power and was expecting the mpg to not be that great with a sporty ride. The problem is, as the car gets older the already poor mpg gets much much worse 16 in city (more like 10) and 24 highway (more like 18). The coolant system is a patchwork mess of connectors and hoses and none of the plastic connectors can be found anywhere but the dealer (for as long as they make parts). This system has leaked since I bought it and no mechanic was able to find a leak no matter how many I took it to. Drivers wheel hub assembly went out right at 60 thousand just like clockwork like so many others (with the other side to soon follow). Paint peeled off outside windshield panel on drivers side. Should have took a longer look at the paint quality when I bought it cause it is more poor than even the cheapest cars. The leather is durable but didn't ever feel high quality to me. Felt more like vinyl to me. Seat leather was starting to split but was repaired. Exhaust started to hiss when accelerating. Interior should have been looked at longer when purchased cause there are no good materials or even good plastics here. Just hard hard cheap plastic that needs to be kept in a garage cause the sun and age has made it look horrible after three and a half years even with using visors in front and back. AC control group back light burned out and the cheap leds are soldered in and can not be changed out easy. Have to get a new control panel for the AC controls. Gear shift lights went off as well and can't see the gear you are in without turning on overhead lights. I overheated on the highway and I soon realized my slow leak was a busted heater core at 110,000. All this was despite always having the maintenance done regularly all fluids changed on time. The engine was still solid though (not sure though if any damage was done to the heads cause of overheat). The fun factor is awesome with the top down though, except the door sill is rather high and you have to raise your seat all the wait up and you still feel like you are in a bathtub with wheels cause you are still low inside the car. The top has always rattled when driving over rough roads and the dealer said it was normal and that they all did that even when new. I found paperwork in the glovebox after purchase that said original owner had top repaired under warranty. I never had engine or transmission problems but after reading the horror stories and realizing that the magical 150,000 mile mark for the transmission to fall out (as 80 percent of owners will tell ya) was soon approaching, I decided to drop it like the dying horse it was. It needed at least a couple thousand in parts to make it just reliable again on a car that was in its ninth year already. Some parts were starting to be hard to find and I wasn't wanting to see what was gonna go next. I had been very lucky already not to have had the powertrain go yet. It's currently sitting on a crummy used car lot at an absolute insane price 10 grand after tax, tag, and title. 10 grand for a dead brand that is made cheap and usually never sees much over 150,000 miles. Most pontiacs are in the junkyard and that's sadly where this brand should go. GM really went cheap on a car that could have saved the company. I wanted to support America and buy American, but they are all junk next to even the cheapest foreign cars and my livelihood depends on a good car So I went asian as so many others have.

My Last General Motors Vehicle Purchase EVER!

I purchased a 2006 Pontiac G6 V6 3.5L with 40,000mi in 2/2007. At the time, I wanted to invest in a GM model vehicle because I wanted to stand by American made cars. Well, sad to say, that I will never purchase another GM vehicle in my lifetime. I can't even count on one hand how often I had to service the brakes, rotors, ball joints, headlights, and tail lights. Just recently I received a recall notice. When I took it in to have it serviced, there was not only 1 recall, as it was stated on the notice, but 3!!! So sad what the American car has become. My odometer just hit 151,000mi and the transmission is starting to go. Time to explore the foreign market!

Just got my G6 and so far it's a good car. Only problems I have so far is my stereo cuts out alot and it's just the front speakers that do this and the other is that if I'm going 55 mph my rpms are at 3000. Is anyone else seeing this or is it just my little 4 cylinder? That seems high and would get better gas mileage if it was lower. Would love to hear if yours is the same way.

My mother bought this car in 2008 I believe, and gave it to me about 2 years ago for better mpg. It was perfectly fine never had a problem. Then everything started to go wrong. The passenger headlight went out, the CD player stopped ejecting the CDs, the brakes squeak no matter what, I've already tried to fix it multiple times, and my power steering just recently went out almost caused me to wreck, scared the living daylights out of me. I didn't even have all these problems with my 87' IROC.

This car was the 4th car I have owned, and I was warned always to not buy this brand because of the way pontiacs usually turn out to be, But I love my car! its by far my favorite and im pretty sure I will drive this car until it just wont go anymore! I just love the way it drives and the way it handles, also its very spacious and great to take on long trips! The people who are having many problems are victims of cars that were not maintained and to be honest the way that they drive. If you drive it easy it will last you forever :)

Excellent purchase

I purchased my 2006 Pontiac G6 with less than 400 miles in March, 2006. This car has been my daily driver for the last 7 years. I have put over 197,000 miles on this vehicle. Of course, I have had regular routine work such as brakes and rotors. Have had a wheel bearing replaced. Very pleased with this car. Just wish it was bigger now that I have children.

Main problem: Passenger side head light

I've owned my 2006 G6 sedan for two years. Drove my long commute to and from work each day reliably and comfortably. Main problem with these cars is the passenger side headlight. GM used a sub quality harness which plugs the headlight assembly into the main harness. It overheats and melts (if yours hasn't yet, it will) Best thing to do is bypass the plug wiring in your own spade connectors. Headlight ground went on it too, had to wire my own. Wish there was a recall on this. Sometimes I get a check engine light which is accompanied by hard shifts. It clears up on its own. Drivers door seal leaks water. Other than that, just brakes and normal ware items. Overall car is very reliable.

Wonderful Car

If I didn't know much about used cars I wouldn't like this one. I have had some issues, but nothing that wasn't expected out of a vehicle with over 100,000 miles that wasn't maintained properly. Everything still works on it, and nothing major has gone bad. The most I've had to do was replace back rotors and brake pads after I got it because they had been let go for way too long. It's a joy to drive, the perfect balance of feedback and comfort. It has a good pick up to it, and wouldn't have any issues at highway speeds if I didn't have a bent wheel (aftermarket wheels). Even for not being maintained this car is surprisingly sturdy and is still running strong.

I am not one to write reviews but I have to write a review on this car. I hate I ever bought this car. Unreliable is an understatement. After about 3 months the car began to shift hard. Had that fixed (so called), and about 9 months after that it is doing the same thing. Had brakes and rotors done on a car I haven't even had over a year. My rotors were rusted for some reason. I have a camry that I've had for 10 years and never experienced rusted rotors but I digress. Point blank, stay away from buying this car. It is a POT (Piece Of Trash)

since people that dont know about cars are scared to buy pontiacs, this car is cheap. i got mine with 64k miles and ive put 3k on it. love this car. not great on gas due to gearing but i put an intake on it and it helps. love the handling. its firm but not uncomfortable. engine is amazing other then the electronic throttle...not a fan. i like my throttle cable just fine and didnt see a need for electronic. everything works great and this car is just so pretty.

P.O.S. please dont buy. JUNK!!!!

Bought a 2006 g6, I've had it about almost 2 yrs now. I've changed the brakes and rotors 6 times already, I've had 4 aligments done, I've had to replace some kind of sensor, had to replace tie rod and wheel bearings twice on passenger side, and the biggest thing is about a week ago i find out i need to replace my steering column and a intermediate shaft. With all the money i put into this car i could of paid it off by now or bought a new one... I've read a lot of reviews and everyone is having these same issues with their cars. So if enough of us write to the headquaters maybe they'll put out a recall like the other company's have. DONT BUY THIS CAR, ITS A MONEY PIT.

This car is by far the worst car I have ever owned. At 47,000 miles i had my 2nd pair of rotors put on. At 50,000 I had struts replaced. At 70,000 my cd player went out. At 75,000 My transmission needed to be rebuilt along with the catalytic converter and all of the o2 sensors. It seems like every time I have fixed it; it breaks down again. This could just be my experience but I would not wish this on anyone. I am at about $4,000 in repairs and the car is only worth about $5,000.

Bought my 06 g6 gtp sedan 3 yrs ago with 49,000 miles. I now have 80,000 miles. My breaks needed changed after awhile and I put the best ceramic pads on and cheaper rotors. Had loud squeky brakes til I put acid wheel cleaner on the rotors to get the glaze off. Wheel bearing hub assembly went out around 60k on front passenger was $120 to fix myself wasnt hard. Thats the only thing thats gone wrong. Get your transmission fluid and filter change at 50k and every 30k after. Its only $80. Changed spark plugs today cost $44.88 dealer reccomends changing at 100,000 miles but mine were definitly due at 75,000. Use the oem ac delco plugs "iridium". Replace all parts with acdelco or you will have prob

this car is fast and fast to break down. problems started as early 30k mi. the water pump was the first to go. that was wierd cause the car was new.then after that it was the battery. mind you that every part that i took i replaced with the top of the line parts available. i finally came up with the rasio that for every 1 new part put on the car 3 more parts broke. then the lower control arm snapped.wheel hub assemply went out. oil drain plug decomposed and the list continues. from transmission shifting hard to total loss of horsepower and deallights failing. just dont buy the car. when it works the car is gorgious and fast.

A real winner, returning it when the lease was up was very painful.

We had the top of the line G6. The GTP. This car stood out. Everything about it was spectacular, the power, Panoramic sunroof, seats, cabin styling, really showed how Pontiac was building some great cars to really compete and make people happy toward the end of its life. Overall, great car. Worth the money.

I've had my 2006 Pontiac G6 for almost 5 years. Very disappointing and lots of maintenance issues beginning at 12,000 mi. Engine, electronic steering, wheel, and paint issues. Very cheap interior plastic parts that continue to break or pop off, condensation in headlight, and now CD player has quit working altogether. I take care of the cars I buy but this one has been non-stop repair bills.

I bought my car 3/2006, brand new, and I have experienced several problems with this car. 2 years ago there was a loud noise coming from the engine and I went to the dealer on 3 occasions and eventually they fixed it. This Saturday while driving, the car just stopped with no warning, in the middle of traffic, on Crenshaw Blvd. I complained to the corporate office the 1st time about the noise and complained about it this time. I was told by the dealer that the engine was frozen and that I needed to pay for them to take the engine apart to see what was wrong. I paid for an extended warranty and smartcare, and I am still being held responsible. I did everything that I was supposed to do. Danger!

I have owned my G6 for almost 2 years. I still love it. It has great performance,acceleration, and handles curves extremely well. I get around 26 mpg on the highway. Hint: Use a product called STP gas treatment at every other fill up and you will increase your mpg. I can't imagine another car I would rather have. The only thing I would change is the cloth seats, I would rather have the leather ones, they are much more comfortable and durable, but these clean up pretty easy using Blue Coral.. Happy driving!

I bought this car in March of 2010 and I've had it for about 6 mos now. There were a few minor problems when I first bought the car, but it was under warranty so fixing it was not a problem (power steering had to be fixed). Everything's been excellent up until 3 wks ago when my check engine light came on and stayed on. I took the car to a mechanic who told me that I needed to replace my gas cap. After I replaced the cap the engine light went off, but came back on a week later. I called the mechanic back and he told me that I may have a leak so that's my next mission. Besides that I love the car; it drives great, turns corners well and I love how fast it accelerates!

I bought my G6 new and hadn't had any major problems so far, although now after 4 years, the paint is chipping on the radio, small problem, but the radio isn't getting good reception on AM and the CDs are getting stuck. The huge problem is this week - hottest week of the year - the compressor went out on the A/C - unbelievable at 4 years old. I'm wondering what is coming next. My brakes act weird at times also, like when I'm going 50 or so, it is grabbing when I brake. There's a lot of info in here about bad brakes on 2006 G6's.

Very nice car, but had nothing but issues on it from day one. Biggest issue is the 3900, the head gasket just leaks and leaks. Dealership made it worse, GM told me to sue dealership. Had my mechanic repair head, stop leaking for 6 months and still leaks. Wasn't for the engine issue I would love this car for years. One big complaint, I feel the seats are too stiff for long rides and need several seat adjustments. But body is very nice and slick, and this car performs well 0-60 in a tad over 6 seconds. Fuel economy average is 18 city and 23 hwy. Don't know how got a 26 MPG hwy ratting, I never have hit that even with car never going over 2500 RPM from a stop.

Bought this vehicle wrecked and replaced front end. Four months later the brakes locked up and I wrecked, having to replace the front end again. If you keep it out of sticky situations, it's a good car. Intake is really low on it as well, so its best to not take it through a deep puddle. Wheel bearings are out at 70,000 miles too. I like the vehicle and reliability, but it's best to invest some money in new brakes and such when you buy one. All wrecked G6s are wrecked in the front, making me think other people have had the same problems with their brakes. But, I think any vehicle is going to give you some problems.

If you're looking for a great performance, fully loaded car for around $10,000, this is your car. I'm only 20 years old and purchased this car a few weeks ago and so far it has driven great! I love all the features.. the huge sunroof is great to show off. The performance of the car STOCK is very smooth and very fast. And the stereo system is one to keep stock. Most guys my age are looking for cars like this, it's too bad there paying around 20k - 30k for them. I paid $10k for this fully loaded beauty! The one downside is the gas mileage. I get around 17 - 19 mpg city and 18 - 22 highway.. Which isn't too bad considering I'm on 20 inch tires. But it's worth it for this ride!

I have had nothing but problems with this lemon. The front made a clunking noise whenever I would make a turn, so I had it fixed under warranty. The u- joints and should arm out at 10,000 miles? Then the brakes went out. Now it is clunking whenever I make a left turn again. The paint on the radio knobs chips off. I was told and shown the rims are bent on the right side. Now the engine light comes on, reduced engine power, and TC light stays on. In the shop right now. The airbag light came on, and had to have the airbag serviced. I might as well have kept my 1994 car, and saved my pocketbook and headache. Power steering problems that arise from nowhere suddenly

I found a 2006 Pontiac G6 for my daughter that seemed to be a good car for the price. A year later I am faced with a $1100 repair to change the power steering assist motor and steering column because of a known GM problem with these type of steering systems. The Cobalt, G5, and numerous others are already on recall. Do your homework, better than that buy a Ford. What a piece of junk!

Bought this car used with 66,000 miles on it. Averaging 33 mpg on the highway, average speed about 70 mph. Plenty of power for a 4cyl. Reliability? The jury is still out because I have only had the vehicle a short time but so far so good!

We bought this used to replace our 2003 Grand Am that I wrote off...the Grand Am had been great by the way. We've only had the car a week but so far everything seems to be fine. Had to replace a blown daytime running light fuse, maybe cause the previous owner had HID lights put in..uped it to 15 amps. People have commented on the hard plastic cheap feel...the plastic is actually soft if you push on it and nice to the touch, looks much like a BMW 3 series I think. Fit and finish seem fine, love the style and the drive. Steering feels good too despite what others have said. Can't afford import and happy with North American made, too bad Pontiac is no more :-(

Fantastic car it's comfortable just depending on what day it is some days it's great others not so great i recently went on a 375 mile trip got fantastic mpgs epa estimated is only 30 highway and everyone seems to get it so i was very very happy when i got and average of 36.7 mpg which is fantastic for a car of that size and no i wasn't drive 55 like grandma i ran 80 - 85 mph the whole way and i had to slow down for construction then speed back up so it surprised the sh*t out of me when it got that good so far the only problem clunking noise from front driver side which is a known problem and i know what it is and GM updated the part in 2009 so in a G6 = fantastic you gotta get on

Bought this car less than a month ago and I love it so far. It drives awesomely and hasn't had any problems yet. However if you research it you'll find that the power steering does go out because it's electric and it cost about $700 to fix. so I'm just waiting for mine to go . This should be recalled . but I've only owned Pontiac's and this is by far my favorite. Really fast even with the 3.5 and awesome sound insulation. Remote start is awesome and the sunroof is sweet. However the monsoon system is probably my favorite also. And the 21 mpg is wrong. I get 26 - 27 highway easily and about 24 in the city.

The Pontiac G6 convertable is not a well made car. Since driving off the lot the roof has rattled,trim has come loose, paint quality is poor,and the muffler has developed leaks twice. However the engine and transmission have been trouble free.The 1st year of ownership resulted in at least six weeks in the dealer for the mentioned quality issues. Complaints through customer service resulted in a waste of time as no one really cared. Having owned many GM products in the past it comes as no suprise that the company's lack of quality and customer service resulted in the demise of the Pontiac brand. No one wants the cars and I have, as we all do the ability to buy elsewhere that is not GM.

I've owned this car for 3 months, and I am very pleased with this car. I personally spent alot of time researching and test driving different cars and this is what I settled on. A foreign alternative to this car would cost me an additional $6,000, and none of them would have pleased me like the G6 Coupe. The performance is great for it's class. Passing cars is a breeze compared to my 00 Taurus. The front seat is very comfortable and has plenty of head/leg room for my 6'0" frame. The remote start and heated seats are a MUST HAVE for this car. Granted this is not a sports car, even in the GT/GTP packages, but they definitely make for sporty, comfortable, and classy daily driver.

It's fun and pretty....rides quite and smooth...feel great when it turns...really nice to drive. But...I'm now at 84000 miles, and over the past 20000 i've constantly had to get the brakes replaced and rotars turned...it's ridiculous how quick they go out and it starts shaking. I'm also having tons of electrical stuff now....CD player stopped working, inside light quit working, trunk light, right window won't go down, cigarette lighter went out, now the sun roof is wanting to get stuck open, sometimes it has the same starting issues others have described, auto entry doesn't work, and I've been taking it into the show every few months to get something new fixed. After 65000, get rid of it!

My car, like some of the others also had brake issues. It also likes to hesitate when starting. The paint easily comes off the interior buttons and the visor mirrors break easily. Seems like it needs aligned often. Blind spots are bad when changing lanes. But overall the flaws my car has had so far have been minor. It's been reliable and handles well.

Nice car. Rather heavy, but that doesn't seem to bother the 3.9 engine. O correction to the reviewer who listed horror when the vehicle continued to crank after the key was let go because the system incorporates an electronic monitoring of the cranking system. It is designed to continue cranking after the key is let go until either 10 seconds elapses or the engine starts. Overall, the car has had a few major issues. Front Brakes continue to warp despite 4 rotor replacements and new pads. Radiator Leakage Steering column (popping) (known issue) Smaller issues are: radio keeping flipping between radio and CD on its own (usually when the radio signal call sign has a '*' next to it

I really give the car a lot of credit. My wife runs the hell out of that thing and I just maintain it with the standard maintenance items that I normally do. Oil change, filter, air filter, check tire pressure. Have not checked plugs yet. More than likely they are fine. I believe there are iridium in there and there is not enough miles on it to worry about it. The only thing I get a little scared about is the car likes to continue to try to start after you turn the key to the starting position. Really bizarre. I personally don't like the rear window pillars. I cannot see anything when I go to switch lanes. So take your time switching lanes. ake sure it is clear.

I brought my car to the dealership to get 4 things done. Oil change, replace windshield, fix my back seat b/c it wasn't going down, and fix my break lights. My break lights were reversed. They would always be on and when I hit the breaks they would go off. Really safe. They had my car for over a week and didn't give me a rental. When I got it back 2/4 things were done. They forgot to replace the windshield and never fixed the back seat. A couple months later, the break lights reversed again. I'm a school teacher and if 25% of my students were passing I'd be fired.

I bought the car online and after i paid i read all the bad reviews. my experience with the car has be mostly positive the only problem i had was with the brakes. i replaced the brakes myself(ceramics of course)and i replaced the rotors at the same time because of all the reviews about them. i feel if pontiac is more sport orientated they would use some decent rotors. a few other problems ive encountered is my throttle body keeps getting dirty and the car clunks and rattles. for a car with such a big engine it get between 33 and 29MPG (60-90 MPH).the sound system is great. i had to replace the radio(6 disc)and just got an aftermarket and got a device to replace the DIC.all in all a good car

We got our 2006 G6 buy assuming a lease from a family member. Normally I have always bought/leased a foreign auto but since we were paid to assume this lease from our family member, I decided to give it a shot..Yeah that was a MISTAKE. CAUTION: This car has intermittent loss of powersteering while you are driving. I has happened to my wife several times and we have taken it to the GM garage(towed it actually)and then when the car is restarted, the powersteering works for a short time until it stops working again. My wife won't drive the car anymore especially with the kids. Since I have taken it, it happens all the time. Fortunately, my lease ends in a few days so I can get rid of this car

I bought it as a demo car with about 7000 miles on it and did purchase the extended warranty. Glad I did after reading other reviews, it seems my car is on the brink of a breakdown because I have had many of the same issues mentioned. Sometimes it turns over real hard when you start it but they don't know what is wrong. The tires lose air pretty easily, and it makes this squeaky creaky sound like shocks/suspension but it is not and they don't know what that is either. Also, it has pulled hard to the left forever and I have had alignments done at all different places and even the dealer look to see if the specs were right and it is still weird.

Bought this car brand new. Smelled gasoline first day - cracked fuel injector. Visor mirrors have broken repeatedly. Fixed 3 times under warranty - now just broke. At 13,000 miles, groaning in the steering column. Left outer tie rod & steering gear replaced. Now, at 20,000 miles, knocking in the steering column. Dealer response: Sorry, warranty ran out at 3 years (even though there is a Technical Service Bulletin about this problem). The starter also hesitates frequently. I don't trust the car anymore and feel unsafe driving it. A recall should have been issued when the NHTSA investigated steering issues in the G6, instead of sticking owners with the cost. I won't buy another Pontiac.

I bought my 2006 Pontiac G6 brand new with only 7 miles. After a few months and some rain I got in my car to go to work one morning and noticed my seat belt was soaking wet (due to leaky sunroof). A couple of months after that I had a terrible vibration when turning left and come to find out my steering column was almost about to snap into! How's that 4 safety? Also having some starter issues that no one seems be able to figure out. All in all I've had the leaks fixed 5 times, brand new steering column 2 times, and I guess one day I'll get in it and it won't start from the starter issues I'm having.

About a year after having the car, the check engine light went on and the catalitic converter needed to be replaced as well as a head gasket. Thank goodness it was still under the manufacturs warrenty. The car is loud and nothing what I expected for what I paid for the car. I am trying to get into a different car because I am so disatisfied but the trade in value is nothing and I am about $7,000 in dept compared to what the car is worth.

*I'd like to note that I am a cautious driver & drove it softly* Came with a 3yr/36,000mi warranty off the lot, bought it with only 10,000 miles on it and at first no problems at all. Great car until I hit 39,000 (conveniently just off warranty) at which point my transmission, airbags, and CD player stopped working, bad timing belt & AC belt. EVERYTHING squeaks inside and out from braking to shocks, even the interior. Cig-lighter/outlets never worked in the first place & were not fixable because of a fuse or something. Oh, and not to mention the transmission isn't even checkable because the dip stick is UNDER THE CAR!!! BAD engine design (though pretty).

I have owned this car for 3 years after purchasing brand new in 2006 and it currently has 78500 miles. Since then I have replaced the tires once, had to have the fuel injection system replaced, exhaust replaced, steering column replaced and replaced the brakes and rotors once. The engine is noisy and the car squeaks and rattles under normal driving conditions. The average MPG registers about 25 on the information center with a mix of city and highway driving. The best mileage has been close to 30. The brakes are noisy but work fine. The resale value is not great, I would not recommend buying a new G6 but a used one may provide cheap transportation.

Ugh. We wanted to buy American but the G6 2-door convertible is a mistake we will not make again. We have not even finished paying off the 3-year loan and can't wait to get rid of it! Just had the entire exhaust system replaced ($1200!), we've had 3 flat tires (driver side back tire) and numerous trips for the rattles. Horrible in snow, no tractionIt takes FOREVER to retract the hardtop & you lose the trunk if the top is down. The lower dash/glove compartment areas shows every little mark if you brush up against it. Horrible trying to get into the back seats. "Terrable, terrable, terrable" as Charles Barkley would say.

I really did enjoy driving this car, it had great acceleration, hugged the road well and had amazing MPG. My Fiance did get motion sickness very easily with this car. In the spring, summer and fall this car was tops... in the winter this car was a liability. Traction in the snow was TERRIBLE, I was stuck in normal driveways multiple times because the traction and tire control was poor. In the southern states this would be a keeper, but since I live in NY I can't get rid of it quick enough. My lease is just about up and I am leasing a new Subaru Legacy which will be quite an upgrade over the G6 in almost every way.

This is my first car, and it still drives fine. I've had one odd repair needed, where a brake caliper had to be rebuilt, but that's because i ride the brakes, and i did it to myself. Car handles well, and can give you pick up when you need it. Very logical car, and would suggest to anyone looking for a well-priced quality car. People seem to be complaining a lot, but I'm a teenager and mine works fine for me. It isn't a Lexus, don't expect one when you buy it, but its a more than capable alternative. Make sure you rotate tires on time with this one though, seeing as how its FWD, and your front wheels do the majority of the braking. It's a good car, don't let others tell you different.

I bought my car brand new and was so excited about it. A year into it I started to have problems with it, and continue to, to this day. I own it for 3 years now and am currently out car shopping because I can't take the problems anymore. The car has been in for the same thing about 4-5 times and they can never find what I am describing. For 2 years now it makes a very high-pitched squeak and also creaking from the wheel shaft. We told them to replace, but would not. As I drive straight, take turns, the noises are always there and my passengers hear it, too. The moon roof rattles when open. A part of the seat belt and mirror also brooken.

1)Every now and then i would hear the double chime over the stereo and "Power Steering" warning message would flash across the display.I am still not able to locate the compartment to add fluid . 2) Now i am at 100,000, went away for a week, came back and now i have an intermittent problem where my brake pedal sits high at times. When this happens the braking is very sensitive,but shims(Shakes) right and left when braking.I have replace the front pads that seemed to help. Still like my car though ..Drives great ,fuel efficiency is excellent in my opinion. I plan to keep mine for awhile ..

Vehicle 2006 Pontiac G6 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A) Review 1) I have also had my G6 for almost 3 years and at around 63K I too had the issue where the transmission lips/jerks sometimes when it switches gears. Interesting enough, I've also had two(2) Grand Am's before this car that had the exact same problem of which would happen randomly.Needless to say i was very very disappointed when it started happening to the G6 especially when the warranty has also just expired. Although they were able to fix the problem ($600.00 later , most of it labor),history has taught me that it's just a matter of when it will happen again .

Again, another 2006 pontiac quality problem. I have a 2006 Grand Prix with many issues and my wife's 2006 G6 is worse. This one was bought new by her father for graduation. It now has just over 30,000 miles and has had the driver side mirror heater go nuts and melt the casing, had the power steering rack completely replaced, the vanity mirror broke and was replaced, and numerous other parts were all replaced under warranty. I wanted so bad to be a advocate for american car manufacturers but I have given up at this point. Still less than 35000 miles and the car has been in the shop so many times. New problems keep appearing but now not under warranty so cannot afford to fix

I have had my G6 for almost 3 years. It has 63K on it right now and the transmission slips/jerks sometimes when it switches gears. I have had it looked at 4 times and the last time they told me it needed a computer update and that would fix the problem. Hate to break it to them, but that didn't fix anything. PPl I talked to says it may be the trans fluid, but theres not anywhere to check it, you HAVE to take it to the dealership to have that checked. They said that wasn't the problem either. When you turn the car to the left the steering makes a clicking sound too. My CD player is starting to mess up on me, I'm just tired of having issues with my car. I'll never own another Pontiac!!!

I have 85k miles on this car (bought with 27k)and have replaced only "wear" parts, such as brake pads and tires. The replacement of the original battery did seem a little early. No mechanical problems and gets pretty good gas mileage ~27 with more highway driving. OK in snow with FWD and traction control but not the greatest. Snow buildup in wheel well seems to cause vibration at approx 45mph. Just need to remove before driving.

I've my car for about 10 months and have had many problems with it. A month after having it my car started dying even thought a month earlier a new battery was put in. I ended having to buy a new battery for it. Then in 11/08 the car started making noises. Every time I would accelerate or turn my car to the left. It sounded as if the suspension was about to come apart as still does it today. 5 days ago when I was driving the engine light was lit up and the engine pow reduced light also came up. My MPG reduced from 40 to 15 and my car eventually stalled. I took it into the shop and had it fixed. I drove it home and did it again and is now sitting in my drive way while I figure out what to do

The 6 speed manual tranny is a blast to drive. Gear ratios are perfect, especially in stop and go traffic. I can make u-turns going over 25mph. The dealer has tried to fix my leaking sunroof 3 times. They have turned my brake rotors 5 times. the motor mounts make a horrible noise. power steering groans in cold weather. Airbag light just came on. I am out of warranty and now had to fix my sunroof, brakes, engine mount myself. I would call it a piece of junk but if the dealer had fixed it the first time.... it would have been the best car I have ever had.

Have had the car 2 years. It has 27,000 mostly highway miles. When the weather gets cold, the suspension sounds like its coming apart. Had the car to the dealership 6 times for front suspension. Have changed intermediate shaft 2x, steering column 2x, struts once, and strut bearing caps once. Can't say they are not trying to fix it, but I am beginining to belive that Pontiac has a design defect in its front suspension. Have heard too many other horror stories about the same problem.

I bought this car used last year. Everything was good until I went to make a sharp turn and the steering locked up. It acted like I had no powersteering fluid. Still acts up off and on. My gear shift is hard to adjust, acts like its trying to stick. I can't get my key out of the ignition sometimes. It acts like it's stuck in there. I sat in my car for over 5 min trying to get it out. My "ice possible" light keeps flashing when the temps aren't even close to being freezing. My "time, temp, language" keeps resetting itself. My fuel range is unreliable. This car is going crazy and so am I trying to figure out what it's doing. Love the look, color, handle and style. Won't buy another though.

I bought this car a little over 2 1/2 yrs ago. When I first got it I loved it but since I have had some reservations. The car is hard to manuver in tight spaces. It's almost as if the wheel is locking or it gives the impression that there is no power steering fluid in the vehicle. I have replaced the windshield 2 times and I've had problems with it starting and no one can seem to tell me why it wouldn't start. It's running great now and I want to believe that every thing will be just fine in '09.

I can be on the highway going 60 and my speed will reduce to 35. I won't even be able to pull a hill. I thank God I didn't get in a wreck because of this car. I tried all I can. I don't have any more money to spend on parts that don't help the problem. I can't talk to the people at GM any more. I can't call lawyer any more. I tried giving the car back. I tried turning it in to be repo. But, I will still have to pay remaining balance after they resale the car. I hate this. Paying for a car for 16 months that I can't drive. cant be fixed

Have had this car 2.5 years, ordered it to my tastes and I love it. Have not had a days worth of trouble. Love the 6 speed manual, it really goes. Decent in the snow. The heated seats are awesome in the winter. Cavernous room for my two teenage boys in the back seats and all my friends think this car looks hot. Maybe because it`s in my favorite flavor-red. Sound system is sweet, tho it could use some automatic sound leveling and a mute button, but why be picky. I am deploying to Iraq next summer and I am thinking I may sell it and get a new one, but I love the 6 speed manual that isn`t made anymore, not sure I can bring myself to let it go. Might let the wife go before the car.

I've had more problems with this car in two years than any other vehicle I've owned. It has left me stranded on the highway twice. Do not like the 17" low profile tires that cost more to replace than my truck tires do. With only 24,000 miles I've spent over $2500 keeping this car on the road. It's comfortable and roomy but that is all that this car has going for it. It's not the economy making GM go under. It's GM's inferior products. I'm looking at trading it in before it leaves me stranded once again.

I have had my car going on 2 years, and the major thing I have replaced are thee rotors. However, I do hear an popping noise whenever I am turning the steering wheel, and this happened just a couple of months after purchasing it. My car does tend to shake when stopping, I hope its not the tire rod end. The interior paint is already fading. I do like the acceleration of the vehicle, the style, and the appearance. I just wish GM had put more thought into the other qualities of the vehicle.

I have just hit my two years of owning my 2006 G6 Sedan and I have already put $1000+ into the car. After reading the other reviews, I'm so sad to hear that others are having the same troubles. Two months after owning the vehicle, I was told by the dealership during an oil change, that the front struts were leaking and that my steering shaft needed to be lubed due to a clunking sound. A year into owning the car, I have had my brakes, rotors, blinker bulbs and front struts replaced. I am about to have my right front wheel bearing replaced this week. Just a note of advice if you hear a tingy sound while driving with the windows down, it could possibly be a clamp loose on the muffler.

Sun visors fell off, 3 CD players, rack & pinion, 2 wheel bearings, several rotors, tie rod end, steering coupler. Now at 56,000 miles, the struts are gone and a loud clunk in the front end again. Check engine light on again. I will never buy another GM product again nor will I recommend it to anyone. Thank goodness it leaves next year.

I bought my G6 a little over a year ago and was very happy with it even though it had some odd noises. Now if you try to accelerate the engine cuts out and the light comes on. Almost killed when engine cut out while passing someone. Dangerous! Has been in the shop 5 times for the issue (and others) told it just isn't meant to accelerate? (what, no highway driving or passing?) I don't believe it. I am ready to voluntarily have it reposessed and ruin my credit. I now officially hate this death trap.

I am so disappointed to see that I have all of the exact same problems that the folks here have had with their G6 4dr Sedan. I thought I was getting a really awesome car when I bought it over a year ago. NOT SO. Steering wheel pops& is hard to control (wobbles) brakes (front AND back) have been replaced, rotors, tie rod ends. YOU NAME IT, it's gone bad! I'm unable to trade it in because of the loss of value and I am sickened to think that I am stuck with this for at least another year. It's at the dealership NOW being evaluated - probably for naught, because I thought (stupidly) that after having all this work done at my local tire shop, THEY were the wrong ones.

I have had problems with rotors, breaks, turn signal burn out, passenger mirror cover breaking, CD player quit working, knocking sounds every time I turn left or right, squeaking sounds, and just today rattling sounds every time I step down on my gas pedal!

I do love this car. But I'm frustrated to no end with General Motors and their lack of responsibility. There is a major, widespread problem with this car's steering shaft and power steering. Even under warranty, GM doesn't want to replace a part more than once; and, even if they did, it would just brake again because the parts are faulty. And nobody seems to care that steering troubles are major safety issues. I am currently very uncomfortable driving this vehicle. And anyone in my path should be scared, too. GM seems to think it's fine with the steering wheel popping every time I turn. And they're not concerned that most of these cars have a failing power steering system. Beware!

So now I've had to pay out of pocket for front and back brakes. I've purchased Extended Warranty. I now have a hole in my muffler that isn't covered on that. Yesterday I went to open my top and the back part opened and the top went up and fell back down. Lots of squeaks and rattles that the dealer can't fix. Truly a LEMON!

Shortly after purchasing this vehicle 20k miles I noticed a spring sound coming from the front passenger wheel. Turned out to be a strut problem. 30k miles replaced the driver's side strut and then had to replace the entire front suspension. Now at 52k it is doing it all again. The interior door molding is pulling away from the door. Now I also think the the bearings are bad in the front passenger wheel because the tire sounds like an airplane engine taking off and landing as I reduce speed. This vehicle has been nothing but problems and would not recommend a G6 or any other GM product to anyone that I valued as a friend. I've replaced my rotors at least 6 times as well.

I bought this car used in Feb. '07 and lost it in an accident July '08. It was quick and accelerated smoothly, performed well both on the city streets and on long trips. Very nice stereo system-great bass. Minor drawback is some of the paint chipped off the radio's on/off button and the knobs/buttons in general seemed a bit cheap. Mileage averaged approx. 19 in city and 23 highway. In these times of high gas prices, one might struggle between choosing this higher performing car versus a more efficient auto. I had my fun but have now concluded I must choose a more economical vehicle; however, I will never forget my Pontiac G6 GTP.

The car is an all around piece of junk! The styling is ok but could improve in some areas. The paint is way to thin and chips easily on the front bumper. The transmission is junk, GM made a huge mistake by mating a 4 speed automatic to a 3.5L V6 because the gear ratios are too far apart and the power and response are not their when you need it. The cruise control lacks a good base, the car may drift + or - 5 mph before the car decides it want to accelerate. The interior is not much to be desired, the seats are not comfortable, the dash ugly and the radio can not be replaced. Overall the car is a HUGE waste of money, I am very disappointed!

I was impressed by initial style, comfort, and fuel economy. Soon discovered its limitations. V6 is a bit noisy and seems unrefined. Suspension is loose. The car wants to jump out of your hands- when you accelerate (I mean step on it) – it pulls to one side. Before our 36,000 mile anniversary we started having popping sounds coming from front suspension (especially while turning corners), even with a tire rotation/balance routine and alignment, the tires had cupped out, and rotors warped. Bye-bye G6 After 18 months together I’ll miss your roomy comfortable cabin and leg room. Will not miss your little trunk opening- awkward for large items.

I hadn't owned a Pontiac in years, but had some wonderful GM products in the past. This sporty, roomy car offers me the best of all worlds. The quiet of a hard top. The joy and sportiness of a convertible. The comfort and space of a luxurious automobile. And ECONOMY! I honestly get 20-22 mpg driving around town in stop and go driving. And on the highway I can count on 32 mpg. This is as good as many mini cars--and I'm surrounded by all this luxury and convenience. This car has been a joy to drive, has plenty of power and people often stop me to ask me what kind of car it is--especially when the top is down. Great car, have had no problems and economical too.

Purchased a red one, with a 6 speed, so it has the power I like and looks great. But within days of owning they needed it back for a recall to fix the sunroof. Then a couple months later I had a waterfall in the car. Sunroof is very loud when closed. Then the lock broke off. I had to get the rotors rotated at 20,000 miles. Will this cause more issues later? A sensor in the door must be going bad that sends the signal saying it is open or shut. The window is suppose to drop down when open & move up when closed. It moves back up before being closed & makes a horrible noise. Afraid it will break the glass. Also the radio doesn't always go off when the door is open.

I have owned this car since they came out. The first time I got into the car the check engine light was on, right their I should have stopped from buying the car. The 4 speed transmission is a huge let down, the power is their but not when you need it. The interior is cheap, the fabric stains easily. The paint on the front bumper pits easily from stones,etc. The doors are huge and heavy, heavier than a truck door. In GM's attempt to get a better looking car into the market than the Cobalt they have failed on a massive level. Overall this car is better in the junkyard than on the road!

My bought my G6 based on my husband's friend who loved his. I test drove mine and loved it. Two week later the problems began. In the two years I have had it the whole front end has been replaced (steering rack, steering column, struts, brakes, tires, some kind of suspension links and clear coat just to name a few) and still can not find the problem. I could not take it anymore I finally traded it in for my Jeep. Save your money and the problems.

We bought our 06 with 9000 miles on it last year. Over the past year of ownership, it has been in the shop 5 times: for several squeaks and rattles in the suspension (all struts and cv boots replaced); squeaky brakes; thudding in the steering; and what finally made us trade it in was the cv axle coming out of the transmission, which fortunately we were told didn't require rebuilding the transmission (this time...). Others we know have had Pontiac cars, and even the G6 without these problems. We were hoping to keep this car for at least 10 years, but with its shop record, we couldn't count on that. We went back to owning another Honda. I just think we got a Lemon.

I have been a GM - particularly Pontiac loyalist for years now. I have owned two. In any event - I think in recent years - GM has made a strong push to make the Pontiac brand a big player that it was in the 80s (Firebird, GrandAm) - and it all starts with the G6. Sharp design, ergonomics, and smooth and crisp ride make this car an excellent overall value for its class. The once dominant Accords, Altimas, and the like - have a real competitor here. Price, fuel economy, and style were factors in my decsion to buy this vehicle - and I'm not disappointed so far.

For a performance car it gets between 24 and 26 MPG depending on how heavy my foot is. Torque steer is a little much when you put your foot into it(I know this is a problem with front wheel drive car's). Have had very few problems.

I feel compelled to write a review about this car as we put a lot of hard miles on our cars, our sedan came with remote keyless entry, remote start, power pedals. We serviced the car every 5000 or as needed. We have replaced front and rear brakes and rear stabilizer bushings. Other than that everything works perfect powerful fun to drive. Great fuel economy for a v6. Just a note, when it comes time for a transmission service don't get the flush, they hacked my transmission line and has never since stopped leaking, they say it needs a high pressure line which cost more then the car is worth, LOL. We have recently purchased a 07 with 30,000 km hope it last as long as our 06.

This car is not very fun to drive. I had owned a Pontiac Grand Prix in the past which I loved so I assumed I would love the G6 even with a smaller V6 engine. I was mistaken. Aside from the negative of not being fun to drive, the positives are: 1) Very comfortable leather seats. 2) Decent monsoon stereo system. 3) Good gas mileage for an American car of this size. I have never gotten less than 25.7 miles per gallon even in city driving. So when I am fretting about the driving experience and counting the months until it is paid off, it always make me feel a bit better when I look at how many mpgs I am getting.

I bought this car new from the dealership and it returned frequently. I love the styling and the car is fun to drive when it's new, however I drove more miles with a shimmy, shake, or rattle more than not. At 4K the starter burned up and the car smelled like fire for 4 months. Tie rods wore out 3 times, struts broke, finally a rattle in the front end that couldn't be found. GM finally bought the car back and I move into a 2008 Malibu.

The vehicle interior is not handsome and the seats are by far not the most comfortable and supportive, the car should have been tinted by the manufacturer. If you live in a sunny state window tinting is highly suggested and get seat covers if you don't get one in leather. It does have some pep to it, when you step on the pedals it does take off relatively quick. The mileage is also surprising in that I am averging about 29/30 on the highway with the V6 so that is a pleasant surprise. The noise inside the cabin is moderate. Use ceramic tint in the rear since the radio antenae is built into the glass. The power pedals make it easy to find a comfortable driving position for my wife and I.

I bought this car thinking I'd be "OK" with it until I could afford my "Audi". I'm not even thinking about the Audi anymore! Not for at least three or four years! It rides unbelievably well. . . it's more comfortable than our Jetta, too. Gas mileage is not great in the city but using Shell gas vs. any other increased my gas mileage by 3 miles per gallon and I hit right about 20 whereas our Jetta gets just a few miles more. I have zero complaints! The GTP package has an unbelievable sound system and before this car I dont think I ever pictured myself cruisin' around on 18's! Haha! I love it! (And yes, I've had nice cars so this is not a case of "first new car" giddies!) Get one!

After driving a 98 malibu for a brief minute....literally, I gave GM one more chance especially for the affordability. The G6 is a great comeback! Once you get past the initial annoying defects (rack n pinion, paper brakes, and front wheel bearing) you have a car that floats at 80mph yet feels sturdy and reliable. I pray it stays this way!

I upgraded to the G6 from a Cavalier, and I absolutely love it! I have the moonroof, 6 disk changer, adjustable pedals, and driver information panel on the stereo panel. Only one problem in the second year I've had the car, and that is the brake/brake lights. When taking the car out of park and applying the brake, the shifter would lock. Dealership replaced a brake component. Then, the brake lights were engaged when I was driving, and they would disengage when I applied the brake. Dealership replaced the other component that is linked to the brakes. No problems since!

Very comfortable car, 19MPG city, 30MPG highway. I loved my G6 for comfort and style. But, at 8,000 miles the bumpy ride got much worse, rotors needed resurfaced, steering problems. (Many blog comments on these problems.) But, if you must buy this car - before you buy, drive this car on bumpy roads. Whatever you do, you must buy the extended warranty from the dealer. Ask about steering problems, riding problems, rotor problems. Car rides bumpy, close to the ground like a sports car. Takes turns great..like a sports car. You decide.

The G6 is the right size and fun to drive. Gas mileage is above average. Reliability is a major problem: Brakes,rough idle, spark knock, Frequent engine light and airbag light issues, Front suspension parts wearing out early etc. Add that the dealer only provides a temporary fix, so you have to take it back again and again for the same problem. I have lost count of how many times it has been in for warranty work. I know it is over 14 times in less than 2 years. If it was reliable, it would be a great car. Maybe the base cars are better. This GTP has not. I have owned many new Pontiacs and this G6 has been the worst for repairs. Choose the Grand Prix instead. It appears to be more reliable.

Love the interior room, decent acceleration from 3.5 (Non VVT version), great fuel economy (32-34 @75-80mph). Now for the bad stuff- the car has been in the shop 5 times over the last year. To date- rotors warped and turned 3 times. Finally being replaced under warrannty (problem with G6 non GT/GTP models). Rack and pinion went bad- replaced, interior dome light shorted, visor vanity door broke, water coming in pass side with heavy rain (drain tubes?). The more I drive it the more I hate the electronic steering.

I've had this car almost a year now and I have no regrets. This is my first Pontiac and I was very, very hesitant about buying it. I had problems with Ford, Dodge, Mercedes, Jeep, and Chevy in the past but none with Honda and Toyota. I test drove my G6 GTP and felt it offered the most for the buck compared to Honda andToyota. I was just worried about reliability. So far, not one defect or problem! I have aready recommended this car to a few people. Not the best car in the world but possible one of the best well rounded cars for $24,000 and 0% financing. I use it M- F for work and my '06 Vette on the weekends.

I've had my G6 four months now and I feel I can be objective. The engine is powerful at 240 HP and can really move. It is docile enough to cruise all day though. The leather seats are comfortable and firm. Plenty of leg room but I'm 5'8 and sometimes I hit my head on the ceiling, messing up my spiky hair. The ride is sporty but not bumpy. The fuel economy isn't great but my lead foot might have something to do with that. The sunroof, horsepower and 8 speaker stereo make it a fun car to drive. My girlfriend telling me to slow down, not so much. The body style is a love child between a 300Z and Solara. The grille is Pontiac but thankfully, no ugly body panels!

I drove one of these convertibles as soon as I could find one and fell instantly in love. Had to wait six months to find one slightly used, but it was well worth the wait. Drove it 2000 miles home from where I purchased and it was a perfect trip. Great ride, great responsiveness, comfortable and much more economical than I would have imagined with such good performance. I get between 31 and 32 mpg out on the Interstate. The interior is very roomy for four with lots of leg room. I have driven sporty Pontiacs off and on over the years and this is the absolute best. I saved more than $40,000 by not buying a similar Lexus and have better ride and lots more room.

Awesome car

So it was between the G6 and the Mazda3. I wanted a sporty sedan with four doors but with power since I was coming out of a Mustang. The G6 had more zoom-zoom than the Mazda3 and it was roomier with more headspace and legroom. I love the 3.5L enginge, I know I have enough power to handle cutting in and out of LA rush hour traffic. I get a lot of stares on the road and people asking questions at gas stations. I remember when I first rolled into work my co-workers mistook my G6 for a Lexus. I love the bold styling of the outside and the room inside, front and back seat. Trunk space is great as well. I love driving it and my friends always elect me to drive on outings since I have the fun car

Wow where do I start? I purchased this on recommendation of a co worker and a test drive. After 2 months had to have the computer replaced. After 6 months two (2) window motors had to be replaced, and the stereo conked out and had to be replaced. At first I enjoyed the ride, thought it was sporty but found out that it was just annoying and rough, very harsh. I used my girlfriend's Infiniti G for two weeks (we swapped much to her chagrin) and hers is a lot better ride, etc. \I also had borrowed a friend's Ford fusion and that vehicle is a lot better comfort wise. Save your money and buy something else. I did sell it last fall and purchased a used BMW 328 for about same price.

I love my G6! When I had went looking for cars I was looking for something sporty, but without the gas mileage of a sports car. I got exactly that with the G6 GTP. It has a lot of pickup and go. The sunroof is awesome for nice weather and the sound system is out of this world. The mileage is OK. I would like a little more, but the other benefits outweigh that by far.

After owning Toyotas for 35 years, I finally bought a new US auto. 06' GTP with the 3.9L engine. At the dealership I had no intention of buying a new car as I was there only to pick up the company vehicle. But there it was. $5k off red tag, $1k incentive + $1k off for owning a Toyota.$22k with all the options that I think that you can get. The last time that I had this much fun was when I bought my 04' Roadster. Gas mileage may be lower then expected, but what price can you put on fun. The 3.9L is snappy and the car handles well. If there was one thing that I don't like, might be that the exhaust could be a bit more throaty like the GTO.

I have owned this car for just over a year. Within 6 months I had to have both bumpers repainted because the four corners of the bumpers were rubbing against the fender wells and began to chip. The warranty covered the cost of the repairs, but would not loan me a car to drive for the three days it took to repair the car. I have also had the car in the shop six times since August 2006 due to an issue with the tires. I just this week finally received a new tire after waiting 2.5 months for a replacement after the tire was diagnosed as faulty. They said even though the car was vibrating, pulling to the left and nearly hydroplaned every time it rained, this was not a safety issue. Don't buy!

My wife and I bought our G6 after seemingly driving everything remotely comparable. The G6 has more usable room in the cabin and trunk than anything we drove. Its road manners are that of a bigger and pricier car, delivering a smooth & quiet ride that still lets you have a little fun. The standard features and build quality are superior to any foreign nameplate we looked at. When it was all said and done, the decision to buy the G6 was a no-brainer.

Love the interior options and exterior design. Car drives smoothly and accelerates quickly. Tires are a bit dicey--seem to slip at the least bit of rain, ice, snow. I would suggest a better gripping tire for this model. Get tons of queries and looks from passers by. The car is an eye catcher! The sporty feel and handling are excellent.

COLDER areas beware, in the winter do to the way the windows are designed in the winter the snow/frost can freeze the window in the UP position, not allowing door to close without running a credit card along the seal first, window may break if you try and close in the UP position!! impossible to swap out radio for aftermarket

Do not buy a Pontiac, especially from this dealer (Capitol Buick Pontiac GMC in Baton Rouge)! I have only had the car for six months, and it has been in the shop over six times for the same things (broken speaker, leak in the sunroof). I traded in a '97 Nissan Sentra that had only been in the shop for repairs twice in its entire life!!! The dealership keeps on giving me the run around about the repairs. I wonder how many of the dealers' have free leaks! They even made the mistake of telling me that there are several G6's that are being brought back because of the same problem!

I really shopped around before I chose the G6. I had it narrowed down to the G6 and the Dodge Charger but when I st in the G6 GTP, I knew it was the car for me. I have been driving this car for almost a year now and it a joy to drive. It was the best buy for the money in its class. I purchased the panoramic roof which I highly recommend. I was going to go with the regular sunroof until I sat in one with the panoramic and it's like being in a convertible but better. Overall, great car and incredibly satisfied with my purchase!

On my 12th GM car in the last 10 years and I am thinking about ditching this process. I am tired of the run around, Maybe some of the service reps should get the boot like what they have done with all the engineers. Just a wishful thought. I am at the point where I need to hire a life guard to oversee the water activities in the G6. Anyone else had this much fun with mold. Car is on the fourth trip to dealership with new seats,carpet , and been deionzed 6 times. Maybe GM and febreeze can make a commercial. Good PR...

But, when we drove off onto the freeway I saw my mom was going 100 mph! But, the car was in kph! We did not live in London or anything related to that.

I was actually in the market for an Accura TL, but the G6 caught my eye. The first day after I drove my G6 off the lot I was pulled over by a police officer who wanted to know about it because he was thinking about purchasing one. Great acceleration, a lot of power. Nice interior and very spacious. Great sound system, and fun to drive. I was very surprised by GM to make a car of this quality for the price.

I am entering a new review for the car I have already reviewed several months ago. To this date everything is absolutely great with the car. I finally got the "Panormaic" sun roof fixed from the continual creaking. But, I did the repairs myself in my driveway. Not a good score for GM Service Techs. It went in twice for the same creaking noise and came out as it went in. No, I was not a happy camper. I fixed the problem using cork stripping under the support brackets to the sunroof over the visors. 1 hr 30 minutes later it was fixed and I've heard no creaking to date. Anyway, just a little FYI to those having this problem.

Did I mention the car had 178,000 miles on it! We knew we wanted to stay with GM, and Pontiac, my wife is the primary driver and fell in love with the G6 as soon as she seen it. It has the 3.5 liter which has been around for many years, with two (2) displacement upgrades it is the old 2.8Lt v6, then it was upgraded to the 3.1Lt, now it is the 3.5 and the HP is awesome!

The wife and I bought two G6s within weeks of each other. Her's is the sedan, mine is the coupe. I fell in love with the car once I saw it and was able to drive it around. Now that the newness has worn off I started to notice some rather significant problems with the vehicle. Water leaks into the “B” pillars (where the seat belts are mounted) whenever it rains. Took a closer look and found MOLD in the insulation. Upon closer inspection, found that there are holes where at the front of the rear windows at the top and bottom that lead behind the B pillar. If you own one of these, check your windows too because unless you get a hard rain, you most likely will not notice the leak. Not happy.

I've always wanted a convertible. I grew up in Ohio, and now live in California. I figured there was no better place to finally take the plunge and buy a convertible, but I did not want a ragtop. This was the perfect mix of indulgence and practicality. The back seats are big enough for my Child Seat and booster seat (I have a 6 and 3 yr. old) and they LOVE it! Finally, a convertible that can actually be functional with kids! I got the 3.9 liter GTP and it's a blast. Good power and handling, and very fun to drive. I constantly get flattering comments from people when they see it, and most (including myself) have a hard time believing it's a Pontiac! I highly recommend this car.

I purchased the G6 after owning Toyotas only for the last 18 years. The incentives were the first thing that caught my eye, and after a test drive in both the V6 and 4 cylinder models, I decided to give the Pontiac a shot. I have put just over 10,000 miles on the car, and can say the performance, ride and handling are great. What makes this a somewhat negative experience for me is the advertised Hwy mileage, compared to actual mileage. I commute 50 miles one way to work, so the 28 city and 34 hwy miles was what actually sold me. About 95% of my drive is highway, and I have not achieved more than 29 mpg. It's a great car, but GM should put more realistic mileage estimates on the sticker.

I've owned many Pontiacs and this is one of my favorites. From the sloping rear deck to the 18" wheels, it's a looker. Little things like remote starter and heated seats come in very handy on those cool days. The ride is excellent for its size thanks to the long wheel base.

With over 117 models to choose from these days I went through several before making a decision and I can say this was and is a good decision. The car has great performance, handling and ride. Considering I examined cars from 18 to 36K this has everything a normal person could want at a great price. The last time I owned a pontiac was in 1990 and after that never considered them again until this came along the G6 coupe came along. All I can say is its about time!

I love the power, the steering, the design of the body. But when you get past all that and everything just seems to fall apart starting the 2nd day after you bought it, you get a little upset. Let me just tell you a couple of the problems i've had.........sunroof doesn't work (took it in 4 times and still nothing), sunroof and side pillars leak when it rains (causing carpet and seats to grow mold),......ABS,traction control, and airbags stopped working. car shakes when braking, rotors and brake pads replaced.

Decent Transportation - do not go out of your way to seek out this car. I got some really great incentives so I bought it. The gas mileage is not up to what the sticker says. The automatic MPG on the dash board is about 2 miles more than what I calculate myself. I have the 6 cylinder. I recommend that you go for the 4 cylinder to improve gas mileage. Very small glove compartment. This is my first Pontiac.

I loved my new G6 the first couple months, then alot of problems happened. First the headlight gasket split leaving moisture in my light. Then I experienced shaking and a knocking noise when braking. Also my sunroof had a leak plus I have a really annoying squeaking noise somewhere around my dash which my dealership still has not fix. So buyer beware!!! I can't believe I traded in my Camaro for this car. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!

I just recently purchased my G6 sedan. This car is a rocket and one of the quietest cars I've ever driven. A blast to drive and gets great fuel economy. Currently getting 33+ mpg. The only problem I have had with the car is the panoramic sunroof. It creaks when you drive over bumps or dips in the road. Other than that, great car. I'd recommend on to anyone but, with the standard power roof.

The G6 is amazing. I have had my for a little over a month and I love everything about it. The V6 engine has nice pick-up. The 6 disc stereo and sound system is great. The seats are comfortable, the back seat is really roomy. It is just a really fun car to drive. I have the regular sunroof (not the panoramic) and I love it, it has a net in the front of it as a sound buffer to keep a lot of sound out and its just wonderful! If you do not have a G6 you are missing out!!! Very Satisfied Customer!!!!

I love the G6, it's a beautiful well running car. The wind noise in the panoramic sunroof is so bad that i would not buy it again. It sounds as though the window is cracked. There is no beauty or no amount of performance that makes up for the noise and water leaks in this sunroof. Beware if you buy it, my experience is showing that General Motors doesn't want to work with the consumer on this problem.

I like the car's responsiveness to the throttle, it is almost intuitive. I like the size of the car in a metro area. My wife drives it most of the time and really looks sporty in the red car with chrome wheels and sunroof open. I dislike the poor visiibility out of the rear window and the difficulty getting into the back seat. It needs a bit more head room back there. There have been absolutely no mechanical problems. The red color makes it hot to touch in the FLorida sun. The car is hot inside when you get into it. It needs heavily tinted windows.

This is one fun car to drive. I live in New England and had a rag top for a couple of years and found that it was really difficult to take care of because of the weather, so I was not looking for another convertible. When I saw this one and read up on the stats, I decided to try one more time. I am real impressed with the comfort of the ride.With the optional wind screen installed (which only takes 10 minutes) the wind is minimal. I agree with other people about the switch for the hard top and they should consider an optional auto dimming mirror.

Approx 3k miles as of Aug 2006. At 300 miles, had oil leak. Dealer replaced rear engine seal. Multiple paint issues. Black paint did not cover primer and was very transparent on deck lid. Paint is very thin on this vehicle. Being in the auto repair business, I know what to look for and honestly feel GM could have done a better refinishing job on this vehicle.

Pontiac division has been needing a new product line to bring it back from its stagnant ho-hum stylings. I've bought Pontiacs in the past for improved style, comfort and roominess but had been shied away until this hardtop convertible came out. I like the idea of being able to either have a hardtop or convertible, like two cars in one. The hardtop doesn't leak water as in most convertibles tend to have and is much warmer inside in colder weather. The remote control start feature works great on days when it's cold outside and you don't want to sit in a cold car waiting for it to warm up. The heated seat feature warms up faster than on other cars. The GTP has more styling over the GT models.

Never before interested in Pontiacs, until this model series. There is something interesting and refreshingly unPontiac about every aspect of the GTP GT (sedan). Peformance, comfort, ergonomics and seductive appearance make this care a gem. This car has the best of Italian and Japanese aesthetics. If I had been told that this was an 80's Maserati compact GT replica, I'd have fallen for it. This is the best looking 4 pass sports sedan made by either Ford or GM.

I have had my G6 GTP for a little over 8 months and have had it in for repairs 9 times. I have a manual transmission and am continually having problems with it. I have lost reverse twice and they had to replace the shifter The sun roof (not panoramic) has leaked 3 times and the dealer has had to replace the carpet. When the car works I love to drive it but it doesn't work long before it breaks. I have spoken to 2 different GM reps and they refuse to replace the car. I am just a few days short of meeting the lemon law requirements and will be asking that they buy the car back. It does not appear TO ME that Pontiac stands behind it's product or cares about it's customers,

I recently went out and bought a red Pontiac G6 for my wife. She loves everything about the car. It is smooth quiet and easy to drive and it looks great. I have a co-worker who had just bought a new V6 Honda Accord and then saw my wife’s G6 say “I wish I had one of those.” My wife’s G6 has the 3.5 V6 it has a good amount of power and gets great gas mileage. The interior is very roomy. All of the audio and climate controls are big and easy to use. My wife loves the interior’s look and feel but it does use some cheaper materials than it competitors. I would have say that people shopping in this segment should take a serious look at the G6. It is a great car especially for the money.

Take you $26K and buy something else!

Very disappointed in this car. I had high hopes but they've been dashed. Car is plagued with leaks, poor fit and finish, and inferior materials. Auto transmission leaves much to be desired; has trouble finding gears and when it does it is anything but smooth. The only thing GM got right is the exterior styling.

The G6 is a real treat, with lots of interior space. My brother who is 6'6" even commented about how he was able to sit in the back seat comfortably. With adjustable pedals, and power adjustable seats it is very easy to find a comfortable driving position. The car looks very nice on the outside, but the "flare out" on the rear of the car makes for an interesting blind spot on the sides. The red interior dashboard lighting is sweet to view at night, and the headlamps are excellent for night driving as they light up the highway very nicely. All in all a great buy, especially with the great incentives & financing going on now (August '06).

What sold me on this car was the hardtop convertable. It performs amazingly well for the price. It has great pick-up. I love the sporty look inside. It does look plasticy, vinyl inside the door instead of leather trim. But where they chose to cut corners in order to acheive the affordable price was right on. It rides smoothly. The retractable top is so cool. The only thing I don't like about it is you have to hold the button in until it is complete, and the placement of the button is overhead by the map light. So you have to hold your hand up. It would be much more comfortable if the had it by the gear shift. And there is absolutely NO trunk space when the top is down, minimal when it is up

Car runs beautifully, bought it fully loaded, with more features than I could imagine. Great handling and acceleration.

I have only owned my G6 for a little over a month but I find myself looking for reasons just to drive it. I love the styling and it's handling. I think my only complaint is the "blind spots" in the rear. I really love the sound system, it's Monsoon 6 cd changer is great, and it's "play list" recorder is something I would never think of in a car. I have the panoramic moon roof and when it's open it like having a convertable. I think American cars have improved by leaps and bounds over the last 10 years. All in all, I LOVE my G6

I have had my G6 convertible for about 2 months and I LOVE it!! It is a lot of fun to drive with the top up or down. The only thing that I don't like is that there is not a locking compartment in the car. It makes no sense to me why Pontiac did not put a lock at least on the glove compartment especially since the car is a convertible. I am thinking about pricing to have a lock put on it myself. Other than that minor design flaw, the car is great!

We live in Chicago, so Convertibles would be fun, didn't seem logical. Didn't like the idea of a Cloth top in the winter, drafts, poor insulation etc. Hardtops were to expensive. The design is rich, looks great. You can see where they cut corners to keep the cost affordable, but its not terrible. I miss the memory seat, home link, and leather trim on the doors. But you can live with it. Having the retractable button overhead is uncomfortable also cause you have to keep it depressed til it is complete. Holding your hand over your head even though it's not that long, about a minute, feels alot longer. Absolutely NO trunk space, even with the top up. But does seat 4 comfortably. We love it.

I guess I'm just not as blown away as everyone else. We have put 10,000 miles on our GTP now and I think it is a nice car but I do have a couple gripes; fuel economy, and power. It seems like a car with 240 horses should be a little quicker (hint - push and hold the traction control button for 5 second to turn off stability control!). Our average fuel economy is 19-20 mpg with my light-on- the-gas wife driving. Interior and exterior fit and finish are great. The layout of the interior was well thought out. Big trunk with a relatively small opening.

I did a ton of research for a new car in the $20-$22K range and I can honestly say that you're not going to get a better car for the money, nor one that looks, feels, or drives better. When you opt for the premium upgrade package that includes the 17" chrome wheels, 6 cd changer, and sunroof, this car is gorgeous!! The 3.5L V6 has more than enough power for city driving and highways and the comfort for driver and passenger is amazing VERY roomy. The most amazing thing about this car (especially in black) is the way it looks at night!!! With all laser red dash and gauge lights it doesnt get much sexier than this. I would highly reccomend this car to anyone looking for the best around 22K.

I got the Pontiac G6 as a company car. I wasn't expecting much but was surprisingly amazed. The vehicle is quieter than most cars I've driven, including my personally owned vehicle, an Acura. It is fast and spunky ... just the way I like to drive. I haven't noticed fuel economy, mostly because the company pays for the gas. I'm interested to see how this baby performs after she gets a few miles under her belt! Being the research hog that I am, I looked up the cost of the vehicle and the ratings. I wasn't surprised by the great consumer ratings the vehicle received but I was surprised at the low sticker price. An absolute steal.

4 months, 6500 miles and loving it all the more. I purchased and Electric Blue GT coupe loaded except for Onstar, replacing a 2001 PT crusier. Guess I go for the "different" look in my cars. Love it love it love it! Fun to drive, hence the high milage. I am averaging 28.9 combo driving with the auto. Very impressed with that. The most out of my PT Cruiser was 23.5 for an auto. Many comments about the remote start for the winter which will come in handy here in Massachuetts as well, but works just as well in the heat of the summer. I leave the AC on when shutting down the car and remote start to cool as well.! First oil change at 6388 at 10% oil life left.

I'm two weeks into ownership. After driving numerous "sport" sedans, this was the first one to really stir some emotion with me. The engine has really nice pull, and the handling is great! The car is not quite as nicely put together as some of the Japanese and German sedans I drove, but what it lacks in fit and finish perfection it makes up for in style and performance.

My family and friends still can't believe I bought a Pontiac. Up until a few weeks ago I would have never believed it myself. Two weeks ago I traded my 2000 MB SLK 230 Kompressor for a G6 GTP coupe. With a new baby on the way I needed something with a back seat so my quest for a new car began. I've previously owned a '98 Honda Prelude,'95 300Z,'04 Elantra, as well as some trucks and other cars that my wife had. Make no mistake this is no sports car! It is though an extremely sporty looking car inside and out. In fact, I would say the best looking coupe under $30k. Handling was much better than expected but not as good as some competition. Ride was very smooth and better then others.

So far I have only had this car for about 2 weeks. I've driven it for 300 miles. I think it drives very smoothly, except for the braking. When it brakes, it has a pulsing feeling. I love all the features that it has. I have the panoramic sunroof and open it every chance I get. It is actually surprisingly quiet. The sunroof is so large that it almost feels like I'm driving a convertible! The monsoon 6 disc stereo system is awesome. It has great sound quality. The trunk is quite roomy as well. The backseat has plenty of legroom. One other downside is when backing up that there are a lot of blindspots because the back of the car is so high. Overall a really great car!

Bought this car to match the fun I have with my motorcycle. I use every hand and foot to shift and brake with it and I wanted a car to match that level of involvement. This G6 GTP is a hoot to drive and it goes like a fireball when I put my foot into it. Lots of fun but can get well over 25 mpg when I drive like my wife does.

I just bought a 2006 Pontiac G6 GTP Hardtop Convertible with the premium package. I love it! IMO, the GTP is definitely worth the extra $, for more horsepower and features. The hardtop works perfectly and fit and finish are top notch. Pickup, ride and handling are excellent.

I really dont like the monsoon sound system, its too boomy. I don't know if that's just mine or if all the monsoon systems sound like that. As Gib mentioned there is a leak problem but it's the sunroof, not the windows. The sunroofs drainage hose pops loose. Once reconnected, all is well. I love driving the car but wish it got better mileage. My old V6 (Dodge Avenger) would get 300+ miles per tank full. This one just gets 240-280, unless I take a long highway trip, then the mileage jumps. I like automatic but wish it were a 5 speed, or 4 spd w/overdrive. There's always gonna be problems, but these aren't deal breakers for me. I really do enjoy this car and recommend it. It's FUN!

I reluctantly bought my Pontiac G6 after my wife talked me into it. I didn't even want to test drive it. It looks like a small car from the outside...it's not. I'm an above average sized guy (6'4"), and I fit just fine. In fact, in most other cars I jam the seat all the way to the back. Not in the G6. I actually have to move it forward some. Inside the car is comfortable and somewhat stylish. The car rides amazingly well. There's only one word to describe it...smooth. It steers well, drives smoothly, and gets over 30 mpg. All in all, this car should rate above every car in its class for its style, comfort and its affordability. Finally, an American car to compete with the Japanese.

Great car for Pontiac

I, like anybody else, read all the reviews before buying. All I can say is don't listen to people who are trashing it. With my work I rent approx. 15 cars a year (Hondas, Toyotas, Nissans, Chevys, Fords). I honestly cannot say any car was better than the G6. Overall is a great car to drive. We got a great price on it, thousands less than a honda. Interior is worlds ahead of the old Grand Am it replaced. It actually has a personality. I never thought I would own a GM car, but I was actually impressed with this pontiac. If you go into it looking for a Lexus at $16,000 you won't happy. If you take it for what it is, its a great car for a great price. GM still does build some quality cars.

I love this car, My problem has been in the steering wheel... The car seems to do its own thing when driving between 50 and 70 on open roads alot of play in the wheel. but the seats are great!!! I traded in my Ford Escape for this car and drove the Altima and the Jetta and picked this one due to the DIS system in the radio along with some extras that they didn't come with. I feel that ABS sytems should be standard on all units in the 05 and current line up. I find it a hazzard not to have it. Oh and word to the wise..... the gas mileage is true. My avg. is at 26 if not better. ALso I se that the G6's rear is a copy of the Chevy Cobalt.

Bought the car in Aug 05. 3.5l G6. Love the handling and the performance. Traded my 03 GrandAm. The G6 is a huge leap forward compared to the GrandAm. My only complaint is at 5k the car needed new brakes and rotars. Factory defect defect I was told by the dealership. A fair amount of body roll when cornering. With a new job my annual mileage will jump to the neighborhood of 50k. My only question is: Given GM's quality record will my G6 make to 200K.

Picked up my car on 5/01/06 had been awaiting its arrival since February 2006. I can truly say,"I'm loving It". We took it to the mountains in Pennsylvania and to the shore on Long Island. It drives nice, has good Pick up, handles well and drives smooth. The top pops up or down in app 30 seconds and it's beautiful to look at!!!!!! Pontiac did a very good job. I almost broght a toyota but I am SO...Happy that I waited until pontiac perfected the G6! It was definitely worth the wait!!!!!!!!!!!

I have owned several convertibles and I find that this one is the most comfortable and quietest I have ever owned. The hardtop works very smoothly and the interior and exterior styling is excellent. The black exterior with the taupe and black interior works very well together. I don't think you can beat it for the price.

I agree with lots of people here. Fit and finish is awesome for the price. Comfort is astounding if you like supportive seats. My wife hates the support bolstering on the front seats, claiming it hurts the back of her legs on exiting, but she's not into "spirited cornering" either. Here's the clincher... I test drove only a couple cars, mostly because I prefer small cars and I'm not a small guy. I'm 6'5" and 285lbs. I don't fit into anything else in this price range that is fun to drive (Scion TC, 06 Civic, Mazda3). But I fit in the G6 and have room to grow. The power adjustable height drops the seat far enough down that I have head room even with the regular power sunroof option.

Great Value for the $

GM nailed this one!! Look at the styling of the car, especailly from the rear, and it is as good or better than the Lexus or Porche. Hardtop convertible? Nothing touches it for the money. Quality? WOW! Innovation? Watch how the hardtop convertible works - then you will know. Forget about all you preconceived ideas if you don't think much of Pontiac. I did - and I am soooooo glad. I found out that I don't have to spend 60 to 80 K to get what I really want. I see the light! Thanks Pontiac!

This is the second new Pontiac that I've owned and I think that GM has hit a home run with it. What a great looking car! The G6's styling, quality, and performance are all way above par. Thank goodness GM did away with all of that plastic cladding they had on the GrandAm. If you buy a G6, go with the GTP. It's worth the extra investment since the GTP model with the 3.9 V6 is a mover! The only complaint that I have with the car (and it's a minor one at that)is that GM could have done a little better job with the finish on the interior surfaces. It's a shame that GM isn't marketing this model much more aggressively.

After comparing the G6 with Impala, Civic, and Altima, we decided on the G6 because of the interior creature comforts. Love the Civic but still too small. I am 6'5" and fit in the G6 with ease. The dealership was helpful and made sure we were set up properly. Unfortunately the power pedals don't work and we purchased the car out of state. Plastics could be a bit more upscale but overall I think this car is a winner. At least the regular sunroof doesn't rob the rear passengers of too much legroom.

Overall I'm satisfied with my G6, the price makes it hard to pass up. I think GM should have been smarter where they chose to spend their money in this car. For example, the power adjustable petals are nice, but I could easily do without. They should have invested in some higher quality interior controls. I would recommend getting at least the GT version to anyone.

The panoramic roof is awesome gives the passengers in the rear seat an open roof. The leather bucket seats are sporty with the double colors. The handling of this car is great with the big 18 inch tires. The monsoon radio is loud and crisp which makes listening a good experience.I wish there was 8 days in a week to drive this sports car!

I've only had the car for a week, but I really like it. It handles well, and it is very fun to drive. I finally got rid of my 95 beretta Z26 with 133,000 miles because I have a six month old son, and I needed four doors. It is very easy to get him in and out of the car. I like the panoramic roof, and it makes noise just like any other sunroof. My husband likes the 6 disc changer, but as someone else noted, it doesn't play MP3's. The manual shift mode isn't that exciting. I didn't like the interior until I sat in it. Once I sat in the car, I really liked it. Note that to get your TRUE gas mileage, you have to calculate it yourself. Trunk is exactly the same cubic feet as an Accord.

I took delivery of my 2006 GT Coupe about six weeks ago, but it didn't take more than a few days for me to recognize some design flaws: cheap, manual seat recliner, no heated side mirrors, can't close sunroof by one- touch, no rear window wiper, akward cup holders, awkward head rests, speakers vibrate with bass. I have to admit, I bought this car on impulse. I walked in to take a peek at the Solstice and fell in 'lust' with the G6 coupe. Three hours later I drove it out of the showroom. Looking back I would not have bought this car (got lucky with this approach when I bought my Z3, so gave it another try!!). Now there is an interior leak that is causing the interior sidewall to collapse!! UGH

This was the first NEW (Brand New) car that I had ever purchased. I normally will pick up a car that has a year or so on it to save a few bucks - But No Regrets! This car is a ton of fun to drive and handles incredibly well on the road. In fact, I am in Wyoming, and the Winter driving was as good as the Spring. The traction control is awesome! The only problem that I have run into is with the Indexing Windows. Problem being, they freeze in Wyoming and I am afraid I am going to break a window to open the door. The solution, Remote Start! Wish I would have gone for the GTP and Climate Control, but other than that, no regrets!

We love our new G6 GTP. The car has lots of power and the exterior looks great, very sporty. My neighbors can't believe it's a Pontiac. From the outside the car looks smaller than it really is. In fact it is as big as the Camry and Accord, but you would never guess it due to the sleek low profile. The best attribute of the GTP is the power and sporty ride. Also love the panoramic sunroof which makes this 4 door sedan almost a convertable This is no boring Camry, but it is also not as refined or quiet as the Toyota or Honda. The interior has also been greatly upgraded, but again not to the standard of the Japanese. If you want a sporty family sedan, the G6 GTP is a great choice.

I've had my car for about a month now and I love it. The V6 packs a great punch, but can get you in trouble. When you hit 80 you still feel like you are going 40. The only thing I wish it came with was a navigation system. That was the only feature that had me looking at other cars, but when it came down to it the novelty and styling were too much for me to pass up on. The other feature that I didnt expect was the trunk space. This car has ridiculous trunk space for a coupe.

Bought this car to replace a bland Pontiac Vibe. 201 hp vs. vibe's 130, plus highway mileage of 32 vs. vibe's 34ish...no brainer. G6 looks good, ride's good, best GM interior I've seen. Probably will lack in resale vs. honda/toyota, but try getting in a V6 version of Accord/Camry for under $20k OUT THE DOOR. I have since test driven the G6 GT, and even though horsepower is the same, the GT is geared for fun, and you can tell. The space between the gears in regular G6's v6 is WIDE, not as exciting. Overall G6 is a great looking and performing car, like no other for equal "out the door" cost. Never compare imports to domestics on sticker price.

The 3.5 V6 engine provides plenty of power and the coupe is very quick at all speeds. Although the G6 uses a 4- speed transmission, gas mileage is pretty good. The G6 ride is firm and responsive, but there is a moderate amount of road noise. The interior is much improved over previous models, but still not perfect. The chrome outlined dash layout and controls are very nice, but there is way too much hard plastic that gives a cheap feel. Especially the steering wheel. It is hard, uncomfortable and will slip in your hands. The cup holders are put where drinks will restrict your driving. Overall, a well equipped and stylish vehicle for the money. Would recommend.

Impressive vehicle!

I have driven many different cars in my life and none have compared to the G6! It's amazing. I did my research before I committed and talked directly with other G6 owners. This car has received rave reviews from everyone and now I am a believer. You must TRY it....you won't regret it!

Bought the GTP coupe and it is fast and fun to drive! The GTP is a affordible and safe sports car with side impact air bags, stablity control, traction ect. Unfortunately, the 3.9L does like fuel. The first 1K miles best I got is 17.5 MPG and after that am now at 20.5 MPG. For me this is my personal car and not used for work so gas not a big issue. I keep looking foward to weekends to take my GTP back out on the road.

The performance on this car is amazing, it's 240 hp are extremely underrated. I opted for the automatic because the manual wasn't available at the time of purchase, if I had to buy again I'd buy the manual. The interior is great, except people over 6 ft tall will have head room problems in the back. The only downside of this car is fuel economy, I have a hard time getting over 23.5 mpg (another reason to get a manual), although for vacation driving on the highway it will get around 25 mpg if you keep the cruise on. This has been a great vehicle and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

I bought this car as my first American Car in over 15 years. I traded a 2005 Toyota Camry in for it. The legendary Camry isnt all it's stacked up to be. I owned 2 Camrys and Now, I realize it is mostly the Media who hates american cars. I find the Pontiac G6 to be better in almost every way than the 05 Camry. It has more power and about the same fuel economy as the 4 cyl Camry. I find no cars really get the advertised fuel economy they are supposed to. No sqeeks or rattles like the Camry and the Transmission is flawless and knows when to shift, unlike the Camry. The camry is a good car, but the G6 is alot more exciting and performs better. The interior build quality is better.

Get the GTP if you can swing it.

I had a 2004 Mercedes C320 and even though it was rock solid and handled the road well at high speeds. It was overpriced and a piece of garbage with all sorts of mechanical problems. Total waste of money. I leased an Infinity G 35 Coupe and loved the car. It was fast, beautiful, and fun to drive. The reason why I got rid of it because it was not ingress and egress friendly for babies. G 6 GTP has almost identical performance 0-60 6.2 seconds compared to G35 6.1 seconds. The G 6 GTP Sedan is beautiful inside and out and offers outstanding performance (Faster than the 2004 mustang gt with the 260 horse). I know beacuse I beat them all the time. G6 GTP really changed my views of American cars.

I have a loaded auto GTP with panoramic roof. 1st let's talk styling. The GTP exterior and interior are sharp! The dual exhaust & 18" wheels give the car a very diff look than its little brothers (a regular G6). The 2-tone leather seats and aluminum look trim look great. Seats are contoured, comfortable & supportive, but not as thick as European cars. Overall, very attractive and comfortable. 3.9L V6 is powerful and the car has good torque. Power off the line is good, but passing power at highway speeds even better. All this is a very quiet cage. GM has really reduced outside/road noise. Good steering. (only on GTP). Great brakes. Suspension not quite up to par of foriegn cars.

Great underated sport luxury car.

The GTP version is all about power and handling. The hydraulic steering and stiffer suspension give the car a sports car feel. The 6 speed feels similiar like a Trans Am. The leather seats are bolstered to keep you in place while cornering. The gas mileage is pretty good. I have averaged over 25 mpg in mixed driving. Love the 18" wheels and the excellent brakes. This car has personality and that is something you don't get with an Accord or Camry.

The Pontiac G6 is amazing, bottom line. There is no comparison. I traded in my Toyota Camry in August 2005 for this car. I was very skeptical. However, I have learned that this is the better car. I don't keep cars that often, but I will keep this one. I drive like a MADMAN! The Camry couldn't handle me, but this car does well. The engine power is great and the brakes are even better. Even driving like this, I get the great fuel economy listed on the sticker. Not to mention, the fuel gauge is accurate, when it is full, it is on F, not two inches past F. I love the panoramic sunroof. I was skeptical because of what the journalists were saying, but now I know they just don't like US cars.

Awesome Coupe!

After 5000 miles, this car is fantastic. I had a 2000 Grand Prix GTP coupe that I traded in for this (didn't like the new Grand Prix). And for it being smaller than the GP, it has a bigger back seat! Love the looks and design. If this is the direction Pontiac/GM is going, they should start gaining some market back in the US. Got many many looks and comments with the car. Only thing I had to do was buy snow tires and smaller rims for the winter. Upstate NY has the nickname "The great white north..." ;-)

The car is great there are only 2 negatives. The first is that i should have gotten the spoiler on the back, not for visual reasons but for function. The trunk doesn't have a spot to grab onto when you open it so if you have an armfull of anything it can be inconvenient. The other dislike is the front end comes to a very low point. You have to be very careful not to pull into a space too far or you may hit the curb or another car and damage the front end. Other than that it is an awesome car and i love it. It is very quiet and beautiful to look at!

Nice car. Very supportive seats, generous interior space. My previous car's engine was smoother (V6 Camry- '92), yet I prefer this more powerful engine with its nicely tuned exhaust. It has a solid road feel for such a spacious sedan. I've only owned this a short while, but it appears to be a very well made car. I'm very pleased.

The G6 is a fun car to drive. The 3.5L V6 is powerful for this midsize car but still gets good gas mileage (avg 24 city 29 hwy). The interior is nice and comfortable. There is plenty of front and rear seat leg room which adds to the comfort of the car. The exterior has a sporty appeal for a 4- door sedan. This is a top of the line automobile with a reasonable price. If you are driving a foreign brand automobile take a look at this quality built American Car.

This is my second car. I had a Dodge Stratus before and this car out performs it ten fold. The G6 rides smooth and has excellent steering contrary to what reviews say. It's fun to drive and it has a nice kick to it. I'm tall for a female (5'11") and am comfortable in this car. I've had my 6'6" brother in the backseat who said he was comfortable compared to any other car. The legroom is just fabulous. Gas mileage is pretty good too!

One thing I noticed about the G6 is that when you go fill up at the gas station, it never seems to fill up all the way on the gauge. If it does, it falls below the "F" with in a few miles. Also, I noticed that the panoramic sunroof does not have a complete seal when closed. While driving I can hear a slight whistle and I was misted with water at the car wash.

I bought the G6 to replace a 1999 Mazda 626. I also looked at the new Mazda 6 and the Suburu Legacy. The 6 cyl G6 offered much more options then the 4 cyl version of these cars for the same price. It has strong, smooth accelration, tight handling and suspension, and drives like a sport car. The four door is roomy in the front/back and can easily accomodate a family. The panoramic moonroof is huge, and really cool. Overall, a fun car to drive. The only suprise so far is the fuel economy, the sticker says 21-29 but it is more like 20-24. Also, small trunk space and headroom compared to the Mazda 6 and Suburu. It also has more blind spots then other sedans. A great bargin for 20K.

I just purchased a GTP Coupe w/a manual trany. Love the car and the ride, not too crazy about the way the transmission shifts as it's a little notchy. The car looks like a Accord and Solaria mated and the off spring took steroids. I'm getting approx 23 mph in mixed driving. I just figured out the sweet spot for mileage is between 1500 and 2000 rpm. 2000 rpm in 6th gear will get you 70 mph and 30++ mpg (red line is 6300 rpm). The front seats have a lot headroom even with a sunroof, the headroom in the back is tight (I'm 6') for me but the wife fits fine.

The Pontiac G6 is America's best kept secret, based on my experience. It is starting to peeve me whenever I read some smart-aleck journalist who slights it like they seem to do all US-makes, who would likely take the same car, if branded "Honda", and name it car of the year. My experience has been outstanding: It's peppy and stylish and fun and built so that I have had zero problems with it (although, I know, less than 10k miles). It feels great on the road, and people seem to like the looks and are surprised it's a Pontiac. I like blowing past Altimas and Camrys because of the horsepower, yet getting as good gas mileage if not better (30+ hwy even with the 6-cyl). It's a good choice.

Very average car with poor build quality. GM has really let their products slip over the past few years. Bubbles in the windshield, noisy transmission, lackluster power, poor fuel economy, and unresponsive electronic steering make a could-be good car below average. There are many better options from Dodge, Mazda, and Acura.

This car is fun to drive, the instrament panel is great and easy to see and use.The power train is very nice, I feel it is powered with the proper size engine for the size of the vehicle, great pick up and passing. The transmission is very smooth. I find the interior compartment of the car is great. Only thing that is hard to get used to is getting into the drivers seat, as I have driven full size vehicles and SUV's for the last 15 years, and therefore it's taking a while to get used to dropping into the car. The back seat is very comfortable and alot of leg room, also the front seat is nice. I have a friend that is 6'5" tall and he says both the front and back are very comfortable for him.

I have been sceptical of American made cars. The last 3 cars my wife and I have owned are a 2002 Acura TL, 2000 Audi A4 and my current car a Infiniti 2003 G35 coupe. This car is fun to drive and the GTP options gave us the features that we are used to at a good price. We were going to trade the TL in for a TSX, but this car loaded and with the good deal we received on the price all I can say is go Pontiac. Lots of interior space and nice looks. With the extended wheel base in handles well and I'm used to my G35. Very happy so far... I hope we stay as happy with this vehicle as we are today!

GREAT car!!!

When I purchased my '06 Pontiac G6 with the Ecotec 2.4L, I thought I was settling for something less than I was use to. This is far from the case. I have found the 2.4 to quick off the line, and easily gets out of its own way on the highway. I do miss not having ABS or traction....my error when buying the G6. I love the handling, but found the stock tires to be too weak on the curves. Replaced them with Goodyear Assurance (Eagle- Like)....which handle the curves perfectly, and matches the great G6 suspension. Only criticism is the interior switchgear could be higher quality. Very happy with my decision.

Not bad Pontiac, not bad

Looked at numerous midsizers including the Camry and Accord. While this is much better than the Camry, I think the Accord overall is a much better value. It had higher interior quality and materials, smaller panel gaps inside and out, a faster engine, better fuel economy, and more luxury amenities. However, I chose the G6 because of the low price. It's got a lot of the basic features the Accord has since the price is a couple thousand cheaper. Plus it has the cool big moonroof that opens up in panels.

I love this car

I bought my G6 GT a few months ago, I was going to get a 2001 BMW 540i M Sport with 80k miles Because I wanted something nice, different, something my friends didnt have, a friend who is a Pontiac saleman talked me into test driving the G6 GT, and I was sold, all the options I had with this car blew my mind, XM radio, auto adjustable foot pedals, leather, 6 disc cd, power sunroof, heated seats, lots of truck space, LOTS.. you wouldnt think so with this car, very comfortable ride, front or back, the car makes me think im in a $45,000 nissan 350z there is a lot of value in this car, soooo glad i didnt go BMW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just got this car and only had it for one day. Everything seems to be put together well. I always go with GM because my wife works for GMAC MORTGAGE and we can get a car at a great price without haggling. I opted for the regular sunroof because I heard too much negativity about the panaramic roof. Car rides beautifully. I am hoping it holds up with no typical GM dashboard rattles. Only time will tell. I am hoping for the best. So far I am very happy!

I never expected so much performance from a vehicle in this price range. Especially not from a non import. It feels like an Acura or a BMW - at 1/2 the price. These cars are going to go up in price as this "secret" becomes common knowledge.

I have had my car since mid August and love the way it handles. Have not seen any others on the road so far! Got the Electric Blue...great color. Has great pickup..have to watch your speed since you can be going 80 before you know it! Smooth ride, great leg room in the back seat, good size truck. I added the upgraded 17" cast aluminum chrome wheels, along with the adjustable pedals and the remote start. Getting 26 mpg in city driving so far! No problems to date! Great sound system. Glad I bought the G6 instead of the Toyota Solara. Better pricing and almost the same styling

I owned my 2005 G6 for 5 days. I purchased it from a local dealership as a GM Certified Vehicle.Unknowing to me, it had an open recall on it. It was a beautiful car, inside and out. It got great gas mileage and was a very affordable family functional vehicle. My problem is with the Steering. My family (all 4 of us) were on our way to my daughter's school on Tuesday morning. The steering went out completely in a curve when we were going 50 mph. We spun through 2 lanes of traffic, flipped 4 times and landed upside down in a ditch. I don't know what component is at fault but I do know it was not driver error and I would not purchase another even though they are gorgeous.

This car is great. The build quality is wonderful. I had an Audi A4 before this and although the G6 is not as nice on the inside, it uses very high quality materials. And of course the G6 costs about $17K less. I recently took a road trip and my highway mpg averaged 32. My mpg around town has been around 25. This car has a lot of creature comforts that I would expect to see on more expensive models. Mine came with a power sunroof, 6-disc CD changer, and power adjustable pedals for around $18K. What a great deal. General Motors should be commended for the great cars they are now making. They're on par (if not above for the price) with the rest.

I have the 6-speed manual. IMO, it's the only acceptable form of this car. The 3.9L is sufficiently powerful and the transmission has a wide spread of complementary ratios. However, first gear seems a bit short. You have to up-shift far earlier than one would expect. Overall, this car is great. Onstar, XM and the panaromic roof are neat gee-whiz features. The ride is firm but in no way harsh. The body is free of creaks and rattles (even the sunroof). Fuel economy is at 29mpg right now, which is far higher than expected. The clutch is smooth, if a bit long in travel. The seats are comfortable, rear legroom is impressive, and all the controls are logically placed. A well done car.

Nice Ride

Very quiet except on really rough roads, excellent stereo , and spacious back seat on base sedan . Some cheap plastic on the interior , but what do you expect for under 20k ?

I looked at, and drove almost every midsize sedan, (around $20,000.00) and the G6 is an unbelievable value! The 4 cylinder 2.4 liter engine has got all the pep and spunk you will need! The car is agile, tight,and quiet! The car has a fantastic ride, sitting on the standard 16" rubber. Seriously folks! You have to look at this car if Value for the "Buck" is important to you! You will save a lot on the sticker price by going with the standard 2.4 liter 4 cylinder but you won't regret it!!

If you have kids, and want performance this is definitely the way to go. Anyone who drives it absolutely loves it. Recommend to everyone.

Driven the car on all sorts of trips. One 2000 mile stint and it was very comfortable and pleasure to drive. This car is fun, and even great accelerations with the 3.5L V6. I averaged 33 MPG on the long trip and am getting 22 in the city. This is the first car I've had with Satelite Radio and I really like it. On Star is a great safety option that ever car in america should have. I must say the G6 has been a pleasnt surprise for me. I think GM/Pontiac has got a winner on their hands for sure. I picked the G6 over the Grand Prix. Mostly because of styling and more room for my back seat riders. This car is great all around!

I really am impressed with the styling of the G6. Very roomy interior and the exterior lines are smooth and simple. Ride is exactly what I expected in a car within this price range.

I recently purchased my G6 GT Coupe to replace my '05 Chevy Equinox. My main reason for the purchase was gas mileage. So far, I have been very impressed, as I am getting almost 25 mpg. The G6 handles great and has much to offer in additional options. I am impressed with the styling of both the interior and exterior. This car is a real eye-catcher! The manumatic shift is a fun addition to everyday driving. I have heard very little road noise and I am impressed with the power of the 3.5L V6. To me, I have received a lot of car for the money. So far this has been the best out of the 4 previous Pontiac models I have owned.

I've had my '06 GTP Coupe for 1600 miles now, and I love it. The 3.9L 240hp V-6 makes this car a blasat to drive. It let's you mess with cars costing a lot more. The gas mileage is good, around 22.0 mpg in mixed driving. The big 18" tires provide plenty of grip, handling, and a good ride. Interior and exterior build quality is on par with more expensive German and Japanese models. I would recommend a look at this car to anyone who does not want to go broke, but does want to have a lot of fun in an every-day-driver.

We bought this G6 new back in march 2005. Took it on a 1600 mile trip and got a whopping 34 mpg highway. Was very impressed due that the sticker said 20 city and 29 highway. I'm getting 23 in city driving all with the a/c on. Have taken the car back to the dealership twice because the foot control pedals never worked since day one. The dealership replaced a control module and it worked for a month and now have another module on order. The rear windows down and the front up makes a real bad air fluttering noise inside the passenger compartment. The 3.5L is very strong and the transmission shifts smoothly. Glad we traded our 2005 gas hog Jeep Liberty in on it. Very Beautiful car.

The ride is a little hard but the performance makes up for it. I'm hoping for a little better gas mileage. Right now I get 20.5 per gal. The style of the car turns heads all the time. There is not much room for passengers in the rear, but that's not a concern of mine. This is a 1 person car for me. I put 50,000 miles a year on a car and need a dependable one. I've found this in Pontiac.

Even though the G6 has a smaller motor than the Mustang, the G6 has more get up and go, way better on gas and plenty more room. It was rated @32mpg on the highway and on one of our trips we averaged a whopping 34.9mpg, way better than I expected. I'm glad we got the V6 over the 4 cyl. With that kind of mileage, why would you get a 4 cyl.?

I bought this car used (15k miles) and have just put over 1000 miles on it in one week (vacation). Good performance from engine and sound handling dynamics. Fuel economy is surprisingly good; 23 city, 34 mpg on country roads at 60-65 mph, and 32 mpg at 78 mph on the higway, all with the AC running and 3 passengers. This vehicle is a HUGE step forward from past GM efforts, but it has room to improve.

After years of fueling the SUV monster, the wife and I decided to get her a regular sedan. We liked the look of the G6 and we both were taken by the Panoramic Roof feature. Well... the thing rattles. The entire rack assembly inside the headliner never got installed properly and we have been dealing with an annoying poping noise from right above the drivers head. As of this writing the car is at the dealership for the SIXTH time since April 05 to get this corrected. All I can say is thank god we purchased the extended warranty as the rental cars would have bankrupt us. Hopefully the dealer and GM can figure this out as we are ready to lemon law this beast.

The new G6 Coupe GTP is amazing! WAY better than I ever expected. The coupe features Mercedes-Benz style windows that lower 1/2 inch to allow tighter seals around the window: class act! Pontiac looks like its turing itself around and putting the sport back into GM. For those of you who like seeing behind you while you drive, you may find the head rests and the small rear window to be intrusive, as the headrests block almost 50% of the rear view. Finally, the standard Stabilitrak system on the GTP keeps you on track...hopefully Pontiac will offer it to the "snow belt" on the other trim models.

It looks great and is very quite and is alot of fun to drive.The 3.5 engine gives you more horsepower the you will need in any situation. There are several what I consider minor flaws, one of which is the ride. The sports suspension handles great and is very responsive but gives a hard ride. When you go over a bump you will feel it and I haven't gotten the 21mpg City or 29mpg Highway the sticker claims you get yet. Check out suggestion improvements for more.

Glad I Got It

I had a 2002 Grand Prix which I really liked but was ready to trade in for a newer model, I never expected to walk out with a new G6 instead. I love it! It's got great pick-up, good on gas, feels safe, stylish and I enjoy the panoramic sunroof; however the leather interior makes it really hot.

This is my company car, and I have only had it for a month, but here are my first impressions. The engine is strong (especially above 4000 RPM), and the transmission is the best 4 speed automatic I have ever driven. The ride is reasonably firm for a domestic while not being overly harsh. The interior room is very good for a car in this class, and the exterior styling is fine if not a tad subdued. My only real complaint is the quality of the interior pieces. The door panels and the console are made of inferior quality plastic. It looks like something you would expect to find on a Yugo (pretty bad). Made sure to poke around at the interior before you buy. It is way under Honda/Toyota.

Impressive

I purchased this car over a month ago, and the driving still impresses me. It has excellent handling around curves and turns, and stay right with you wherever you want to go. The car gets decent gas mileage, and provides awesome acceleration for a 4-door. Unfortunately the coupes are basically the same car with less doors, so the back passengers will lose space to sit, but in my 4 door there is more room in there than you think. 4 full sized adult males could comfortably go on a road trip in this.

Good Alternative

Like other reviewers, the G6 was not my first choice, however with the financing and price specials it was very hard to pass up. Overall, I'm pleased with the performance of the car. There is room for improvement on gas milage and interior feel. Fully loaded, its a nice mid size car.

GREAT Car

Great ride, very smooth and nice looking. Plenty of power, who needs 400 horsepower any way. I would recommend this car to anyone. Had 2003 Honda Accord and the G6 is much better. Better quality and smoother ride. Handling is great.

All around excellent vehicle

If you are looking at Accords or Camry's you had better check out the G6 before you buy. GM hit the bullseye with this car. Great styling, great fit and finish. Interior is well laid out and comfortable. I have had the car 6 months and have 21,000 miles on it. I average 28 - 30 mpg on the highway, and I don't baby it! Tremendous room inside for a car this size. One word of caution. If you are tall (0ver 6 ft) the large sunroof may cut into your headroom. I am 5'10" and have no problems. Trunk size is larger than I expected. Because of the adjustable pedals and steering wheel, both my wife (5'2") and I (5'10") can easily find comfortable driving positions.

After my last two leases being a Volvo, the vehicle is not reliable the overall scenario is arrogance. I decided to shop around and this G6 is just better in every category with many more facilities to get help if necessary, than Volvo could imagine. The grand finale is of course ON Star, what a sensational item. I am absolutely excited about my G6 and so far it is head and shoulder better than the S 70 and S 60 volvo' I had recently leased.

This automobile is not only classy looking, it is fun to drive and has a very peppy 3.5L engine that will run with the best of them. It is the closest thing you can get to a Cadillac without actually having to pay the price of a Cadillac.

This car exceeds all of the expectations I had for a new car. Fun to drive, good on gas and a definite head-turner on the road. The only drawback I have found is the dark interior which gets very hot in the warm months. The XM Radio is a decided plus.

Our new Pontiac G6 is a lot better car than we had hoped for. We like the way it drives and handles on the highway, and we certainly like the way strangers walk up to us at a gas station when we fill up the tank and ask us what kind of car is that. They seem to be impressed by the sporty look of the vehicle. The inside is a lot roomier than it first appears. I only wish that there was a little more storage space to hide belongings. The car definitely has a little pep to it!

Good car. Room for Improvement

I really wanted an Acura TSX but admit that Pontiac discounts and low financing rates were too hard to pass up. When I test drove this car, I was impressed with its ride, handling, looks, and of course, price. There is lots of room for improvement. For me, 200 horses is plenty. The engine sound lame, however. There is too much lateral movement, especially at low speeds and the car could be stiffer. Way too much interior plastic. And finally, what's with the floor hump in the rear passenger area? Fuel economy is not bad. At 26 mpg highway, it is well below advertised value of 29 mpg.

The best car ever

I have driven 5 Pontiac Bonnevilles before I bought my G6 GT. I loved my Bonnies. They always met my driving needs as far as performance, handling and comfort was concerned. I test drove the G6 and was amazed that while the G6 was smaller, the performance and comfort was on par with the Bonnies. The handling was even better than what I was used to.

I leased a 2005 G6 just because I drove it when I needed to look for a better car, and once I drove it I loved it. I am 6'6" tall and it has more room and comfort than my old Caddy. It has great peep, good gas mileage, great room for 4 big people and rides like a dream it will be on of the biggest hits for Pontiac in the years to come

Gigi (my G6) and I have been crusing Central Jersey for 6 months and so far, I've loved every minute of it. In my heart, I'm a convertible driver. I feared that the panoramic roof wouldn't feed my need for wind. The reality has been the reverse. Due to the multiple settings, I've been able to open the roof at lower temperatures and get my fresh air fix. I'm sure I'll have a bit of lust in my heart once Pontiac launches the G6 Convertible next year, but right now, I'm enjoying the cruise.
