I got my 2007 g5 gt with 162,000 miles on it and i love it!!! The only problem i had was with the sunroof drains being clogged but that was it. Love the Pioneer Audio, sunroof, styling, wheels and comfort. Only thing i don't like is the rear visibility but that's it!! GREAT CAR!!!

Great first car but has it's own cons

I got this car for my first car and I can pretty much say I love it. I got it used with two previous owners that didn't take care of it it seems. I purchased it and have drove it a lot. I found it needed a fan, sunroof drain pipe fixed, and now it needs new struts. The dealership fixed everything and hopefully will fix the struts. But all of that are used car problems especially when the last owner(s) didn't take much care of it. I love my car. Has everything that comes with it. I don't know if they are added features or if the GT comes with all of it. Sadly mine is an automatic tho. I love the pioneer audio, the heated seats, the sunroof, everything. It's a beautiful car and gives a powerful burst when on the gas even tho it's only a small ecotech 4 cylinder. And when I go to fill it halfway up because that's when I always do. Never let it get below half is my way and I always fill it till it's full. I spend only $13. Some cons that I noticed are the doors swing pretty far out. Not a con but the con is they can sometimes swing open with small force so I'm constantly telling people be careful. Another con. Doors and trunk hit hard. When closing the doors and trunks the seem to slam. Doors I have no idea why but the trunk because the spoiler weighs a lot. Another con involving the trunk is the spoiler being heavy. Not so much a con but makes it hard to open the trunk because when pushing the button to release it it doesn't pop up very far and I don't like using the spoiler. One con is that it doesn't shift until the rpms are pretty high. Unless that's my way of driving. You may get better shifts and better gas mileage where I'm averaging only 20mpg where it should get 25-30. Those cons aren't that big of a deal but the worst con I have and the thing that I hate the most is the turn radius. You don't want to make a u-turn unless you are clear for a long distance. You may need to back up. I have a fairly big highway to u turn on and sometimes I'm still scared. I can barely back into my driveway because where everyone turns into to back into the driveway or back out. It's a pit filled in with gravel and I always end up in the wooded part behind it. So that's my review on the Pontiac G5. I love it but be careful turning always.

Great Little Car

Our 2007 G5 has the 2.2l and 4 speed automatic transmission. This car has about 165,000 miles on it and is still going strong. Being that we live in Michigan the suspension takes a beating, but components dont seam to wear out any faster than they will on any other car. The engine and transmission still feel strong and neither has ever had a leak. The gas mileage is fantastic, we can get about 36.5 MPG driving with the cruise set around 70 MPH with the A/C on in the summer time.

Awesome

When looking to get a new car I knew that I needed something that was decent in the snow, smaller in size, appealing to the eye, and better gas mileage. I chose the Pontiac G5 because it looks great and gets me to where I need to go using very little gas.

Everyone in my area that has a G5 has the same trouble.My car has 40000kms and I t has been back for strut boots,linkage kits in front end twice,brake trouble which they cant seem to figure out what is causing it,heater blower motor twice,door strikers on both sides,manual transmission shifter trouble,control arm bushings,Electric motor coil(which was only fixed for a couple of days now causing trouble again)radio and signal lights come on and off on their own(no one seems to know why)overall I would recommend to stay away from it.I was told by the dealership that the G6 has the same troubles so stay away from that too.My father has a 2000 Mazda Protege brought new and never had a hitch yet.

My G5 has been in the shop 6 times since i bought it in December 07 with the same problem. Radio has staic rpm fluxuates, tires blown out, gas milage droped from 35 mpg to 27 mpg the first 2 months. I will never buy another GM product. I'll stick with my good dependable FORDS. Dealer still can't fix the car. They just keep reprograming it.

Nice car but bad gas mileage

Bought this car because of the price, not a bad car but the gas mileage is horrendous GM advertises 5.2ltr per 100kms I wish, I'm lucky if I get 7.4ltr per 100kms. They also state you will get 952kms per tank. I get maybe 550kms. My 3.8ltr impala is better on fuel than the g5. I will never ever buy GM again. With today's technology there's no reason why a 4 cyl engine should get less than 1000kms to a tank of gas.

Stuck with it and hate it!

Got the sport edtion 10/07. Before the end of the year had door panel fixed (it was cracked) door handle inside was peeling, button on shifter knob and on shifter shaft both peeled,very slow acceleration,blower motor had to be fixed,speaker doesn't work in driver's door anymore,leak stain on my head liner by windshield, had to fix lower control arm bushings (after only a year), rims started peeling, center caps fell out, i am the only one ever in my car and the passenger door is cracked now, love the spoiler since i drive on the highway a lot ( it blocks the bright headlights from shining in my face)paid $18,000 and now only worth $5,000 and it is in great shape besides miles on it.

Stay away from this car! I've had nothing but problems with it. Steering column replaced, steering shaft replaced, right control arm bushing, a link in right stabilizer, weather stripping due to wind noise, and part of the left fender had to be glued on to the car because it wasn't fit properly...all before 18000 miles. Oh, also brakes done (rotors and pads), and was told by guy at dealership I needed new tires. I don't drive hard, and I respect the vehicle. Enough said!!!

I have had my G5 Coupe SE for two years now, and have had no problems but one small wire chaffing for my a/c. It has been an all around good car. I do wish the seats were more comfortable, on long trips especially. The trunk opening could be a bit bigger. Overall it's been a good car.

My husband drove a 1998 Ford F150 and it finally died. He wanted something economical on gas so we looked around and found a 2007 G5. WHAT A MISTAKE!!! This has got to be the most uncomfortable car I've ever sat in, especially on long drives. It shakes and rattles and so far the brakes, tires, rotors,control arm have had to be replaced. The windshield wipers are useless and the road noise is horrible. We've only had it a year. I drive a 2003 Neon with no options at all and it is a far superior car to the G5. My gas mileage is even better than the G5 Pontiac needs to go back to the drawing board with this one.

Haven't had a GM product in about 15 years, daughter needed a car for school and the price was right so i bought the G5, what a mistake, has been in the shop twice in less than a year for new rear axel and rear suspension failure covered under warranty. but i need a reliable car not a reliable warranty. Should have gotten a honda. I'm so stuck with this it's not funny.

Great overall car, I don't like cars but this is a nice mid-priced car, sporty, handles nice, but I have had MAJOR problems every time I take it to the shop and have anything to do with the brakes or hubs. New front rotors at 15000 miles, the g5 rotors didn't fit.. had to get g6 rotors, then a wheel bearing went in the back, have to get a whole new hub assembly, again g5 part didn't fit, had to get g6 part and now my abs and traction control don't work... also had to have some bushings in the front replaced 3 times!!! and my rear defroster never works. and they fixed it twice.

I love it - bought it brand new in '07, but it's only 2 yrs old with 23K miles & already running like my old 10 yr Chevy Cavalier! So I took it back to dealer for service; whoa, it needed 2 arm controls, a stabilizer and 3 wheel bearing - all still under warranty thank God! I asked them how much life expectancy for this vehicle, and he said that they do keep certain parts in stock for this model. I am very concerned and already considering trading it in.

I purchased my Pontiac G5 in 2007. I would not trade her for the world. Everyone assumes i spent alot more then i did on her. With the extra money i saved purchasing her, i was able to get the windows tinted and she looks sharper then any foreign car out there. She looks and sounds great with the exhaust tip i was also able to purchase with the fuel savings i enjoy. If you want a REAL deal, look into and purchase a G5. You will never be sorry...

I average 25/city and at at 75mph I get 36/37 mpg freeway! The car quickly becomes like an extension of yourself on the road.

I am in my 60's and have a degree in mechanical engineering. Bought this car new as a one year old model from the dealer's lot. First, the price was incredibly good, with 3 rebates piggybacked. After driving it for 12 months, I have no problems with it, except for one thing, it started bucking when I floored the gas pedal above 50 mph. Before taking it in to dealer, I poured a can of fuel injector cleaner in gas tank, and voila, it is running better than ever. Canceled dealer appointment! Power is very adequate for every day driving, the 4 banger engine is willing and able to rev up as much as needed without getting noisy. Love this car for economy & fun of driving.

What a disappointment this car has been! We purchased this G5, hoping that it would be similar in quality as the Pontiac Sunfire that we had previously driven. Not even close! We have always had a problems with the keys, to the point we can't even open our doors or trunk, and now the key won't even start the car! It's still under warranty but yet the dealership has chosen to spray my ignition with rustcheck instead of addressing the real problem, the keys! From months of juggling both of our keys to either get the doors opened and now to start the car, I guess the problems start now! Both keys are so worn out just from one year of driving. I also can't stand the noise whilst driving!

I owned my G5 for a little over a year, no problems & is used for a commuter back & forth to work. The best mileage I got was a little over 32 with the automatic. The second week of Dec/08 I was driven to work when a 05/G6 made a left hand turn in front of me. I was doing about 40mph & never had the chance to hit the brakes. I was wearing my seat belt & the air bag deployed, I was knocked out, fortunately when I came to I was basically OK. I did sustain some injuries,but nothing major! The G5 did sustain almost $6k in left front damage tho. So I was a crash test dummy & lived to write about it! My G5 should be repaied the second week of Jan/09. Thank's GM for a safe car!

I've had my G5 GT for almost a year and a half and love it. It is always a head turner, and hardly anyone else has one. The only problems I've had is a broken sunroof switch, replaced under warranty, and a glitch in the keyless entry that others have noted. This was my first new car, and I couldn't be happier.

Don't get me wrong, I love my G5. Love the exterior looks. Black leather, heated seats (That's what sold me.) But the windshield wipers are horrible, I can see better without turning them on. Rear spoiler blocks view, but you get used to it. I don't how anyone gets 36 mpg with it. I get 21 in the city(moderate traffic) and the best i have ever gotten is 26 on hwy. (I'm delicate with my car). And biggest concern, only after 30k mi. Both of my front tires blew out, on the same day. It was like something cut them in a perfect circle on the inside of the tire. I was stuck in BFE Arkansas at a gas station. Dangerous! also having problems with my remote keyless entry

Don't get me wrong all cars have their issues but the list is starting to grow on my new 2007 G5. So far within the first year and 35,000 km (21,000 miles) I've had the fuel sensor and pump replaces, the rear bushings on both front suspension replaced, the radio replaced 4x!! because the original radio that came with the car at the time of purchase was black and the company that GM gets to do the warranty work does not carry radios with black faces (on going issue). So far I'm really not impressed with the quality of my G5 and I'm just waiting for the next thing to go wrong. I can tell you this my next car will not be a GM (BMW, Acura, Honda). It's sad because everyone in my family owns a GM.

I've had my G5 for about 8 months now and I really like it. The power is there when you want it, and when you need it. It's real fun to take a sharp turn with, or fit in tight squeezes while switching lanes. The gas is very good, especially when going highway. I drive it every single day and every time I fill up my gas tank someone always comments on how nice my car is. White G5 GT with Custom 18" Black Racing Rims, with 40 meat kumho tires and 20% window tint all the way around.

I have had this car for almost 6 months now and it has been in the shop four times. The windshield makes noise, like wind is coming in somewhere. The front end has had the bearings replaced, the struts, and the rotors have already been turned, and need to be done again. I noticed if the car sits for more than a week, the rotors are totally shot. Is this something that anyone else is having problems with? I'm also not happy with the noise in the car, all the plastic is coming loose already. I actually own a Honda Civic Si, and I haven't had any problems with it, as well as my Scion TC. I wish I wouldn't have bought this car, but thankfully I purchased an extended warranty!!!!

I've had my GT for a little over a year without any problems. The gray metallic paint, coupe styling, spoiler and 17" brushed aluminum wheels get lots of compliments. It's fun to drive and I appreciate the maneuverability in city driving. City mileage is just fair, but I just returned from a road trip and got a little over 36 mpg on the highway. A little too much wind noise on the highway - but less than in my co-worker's 2007 Camry! I was very pleased with this car when gas was $2 a gallon - I"m thrilled with it at $4.50 a gallon!

After countless used cars, I finally decided to get a new car, and what a fabulous decision I made to buy a brand new Pontiac G5. Keeping price in mind, I went with the base model, which still has great performance and equally impressive looks. My personal record average was 38.7 MPG in medium/light traffic on the interstate for an hour. Unlike most other cars I have driven, the headrests are actually effective and the seats are amazingly comfortable. For being over 6 feet tall, I have more than enough leg room and my head doesn't ever bump the ceiling. The interior controls are clustered intuitively and to my taste.

If you drive it too much, it gets less fun

I loved this car at first. I still love the way it looks. However, I spilled fruit juice in the car and the gear shifter had TO BE REPLACED. The front of the car rattles. My steering shaft went out. My rotors are cheap and will soon need to replace them with made in the USA steel I've been told by guys at work because they are constantly wearing down even though I don't drive it irresponsibly. I drive 120 miles a day, and I wish I bought a foreign made car, because the rattling in the front of the car is really starting to scare me. This car will be worthless when I finally pay it off. It looks great, buy maybe good looks aren't everything. The feel of the drive really deteriorated.

This car is sweet

I just got a yellow 2 door Pontiac G5. It's a 2007. I love this car. I've had it for 2 days now, an couldn't ask for a better car. Great fuel economy, XM radio, great pioneer sound system (stock), sun roof, great interior an exterior look. Its a good car all around. I use to have a 04 sunfire, but I'm absolutely in love with this car. An wouldn't trade it even for a Ferrari.

Every time I walk out my front door, I look at my 2007 Pontiac G5 and say "Hello Beautiful!" I love my car. The exterior is nice, the interior is easy to keep clean and I get great gas mileage for an automatic. I do a lot of highway driving (70 mph) and this car handles beautifully at high speeds. I have no problems getting up to speed to merge either.

I have had my 2dr coupe for almost a year now and overall it is a good car. I have never had maintenance done on my car except for necessary oil changes. I do not have any problems with seeing through the back window because of the rear spoiler like a lot of other people have mentioned. I actually think the spoiler gives the car a more sporty look. Some people may not like the firm seats but personally I find them quite comfortable. The car accelerates well considering the 4 cylinder and is a great around town driver. I would not however recommend this car for someone who does a lot of highway driving as it is very light on the road and tends to sway because of the loose steering.

I have had my G5 for about 6 months now and I love the car but have had MANY problems with it. My dad works at the dealership I bought it from as a mechanic. I have had it in there for a number of problems. Sunroof button kept falling out, coolant leak (4 times for that problem), Oil leak was the recent one. None of them are because of my driving, the car has 8,000 miles on it there is NO reason for this to be happening. Other then that its a great car. Sort of a small backseat when using a car seat for an infant in back but what can you expect with a small coupe. The truck opening is also WAY small, Big truck but small opening

The turning radius is excellent, I can pull a u-turn just about anywhere and park in the smallest places. (I tried the Chevy Cobolt GT and it does not do this and they are suppose to be the same?) Great MPG 36 mpg, with automatic. Very Quite inside, not air noises, road noise. Great dash, XM radio, mp3 connection. Nice styling, inside and out. Beat all the imports. We have the base module with the confort package, and sport package that may be the difference between ours and other ratings. Great looking 18 in mag wheels, controls on the leather wraped wheel

I bought two vehicles in 07 this G5 and a mid size SUV. I drive 135 miles daily and picked this G5 over the smaller foreign brands for my commute. I am an old man compared to the kids driving this car. Have been driving 40 years and owned as many vehicles. I love this car all around.Handling, ride, and mileage obtained. At 80 MPH I get 30 MPG and at legal speeds on the interstate as high as 37.7 MPG! Power is good. Love the XM & seat comfort setting as low as it can go. I am 5’ 11” 215lbs and perfectly comfortable driving three hours daily. Good choice no regrets at 22K and climbing fast.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my 2007 Pontiac G5. But now it is starting to have problems already and it hasn't even been five months since I bought it brand new off the lot. I'm not sure if it is just my car experiencing these problems or if there are others, but there are not any recalls about leaks. Two months after I bought the car, the front windshield leaks. We just recently had a big rainstorm, I go look in my trunk and there is a good 3 inches of standing water in my trunk surrounding my battery. Other than these problems, which shouldn't be happening, this car is a great choice for my first car. Nice and smooth riding.

Very nice ride!

The car handles great, even at high speeds it's a smooth ride. I can pull a u-turn just about anywhere and park in the smallest places. When I baby it I can get over 35 mpg and so far I haven't dropped below 32. When it's cold out I can hear a rattle coming from the front passenger side, I don't know what it is but it hasn't been a problem. My car suprises everyone with it's speed. It's no race car, but for it's class it's impressive. I can easily turn em over in second gear with 3 passengers.

We looked at and tried a lot of cars, but didn't care for them. My wife suggested that we go to a Pontiac dealer and see what they had. I had never seen a G5, didn't know they existed. The G5 is a real sleeper. It makes you want to throw rocks at the other cars, especially those overrated Asian cars that people are so proud of. Phooey! When I saw the American G5, I knew it was right. I was so certain about this car that I bought it outright without driving it first. My wife and I love it. It's everything we want in a car. We are so glad that we found it. This sport coupe has class. The boring Asian cars have no more charm than kitchen appliances.

After a month, we've got 2000 miles and am really convinced it's the right car for me. We went planning to get another G6 but decided to check out the less expensive G5. I'm 6'4" and didn't really think it would work out for me but it does! I even had room in the one with the sunroof! Tight handler, roomy for 2 plus luggage and getting better than EPA rated 32 mpg. Have to watch it though, it sneaks up to 80 mph real easily!

The price was great, and the economy is typical of a 4 cylinder (hi 20s in town, mid 30s highway---regular gasoline). I don't see a compelling reason to go Japanese any more if vehicles like these continue being offered. Interior for me as the driver centers on ease of getting to the radio, ample opportunities of getting the iPOD connected to my radio, simple reach for the HVAC. Mine is the coup and blind spots abound, as others have probably noted. I would have no problem buying this car again.

My 1st car and just clicked over 13000k and so far the car has been good through the summer and very reliable in winnipeg's -40 weather.Brakes rust really badly and look terrible behind the revealing rims.This car is tough to upgrade power wise without putting alot of money into it,it can handle bolt ons but anything more and you will need new injectors and a tune that will void your warrenty.Premium fuel is recommended and it shouldn't run without it if u want optimum performance, but with the price of gas its getting harder to afford the extra 10-15 cents per liter.Gas mileage is so so i get about 24mpg all city.Overall very good car in 5 speed very fun and i recommend it!

This is my sec time posting about my car. I first posted when I got the car. Now I have had the car a year and it has 10k on it. I just took my car on vacation and we drove over 3000 miles in less then 3 days. On the highway with 4 people in the car, all our stuff in the trunk and the ac on max I got 32.5 mpg at 75 mph. After I got back I wanted to run the car at the track to see its 1/4 time so I did and with me, my uncle and a full tank of gas, it ran a 15.7 at 88 mph. This car has taken all the abuse I have given it and with it being my first 5-speed car ever it's been one hell of a car. It's never been in for warranty work and I definitely will be buying another Pontiac after this one.

I have had my cometition yellow G5 for over 3 months now, and this car really rocks. When I drive like a gentleman, with cruise control set to 57 mph, I get better then 43 MPG! I have a few packages with the car, #1 being the sunroof which includes an upgraded sound system (bass reflex port in trunk) and XM radio included for a full year. Just a wonderful experience for a guy who will never buy an import. GM got its act together quite well with this car. More trunk space then expected plus pass through to interior cabin was handy. The 16 inch tire/mag wheel combo helps hold the road.

I have this fun little car for almost a month now. Basically, it is as everyone else has said and if I were to fault this car at all, it would be for the interior plastics. The plastics are easy to scratch. Easy. I mean, you don't mean, but you look, and you see you scratched something. What did it, a coin? Ring? Finger nail? The design layout of the plastic pieces is good, and that is cause of the scratching. There's a cubby hole for pens, an area to lay the iPod, lots of nice areas to lay thing, but that is how the scratches occur. I gave it "5" for interior design due to this.

The Pontiac G5 coupe that I purchased and drove for two weeks has problems. The wind noise in the car is terrible. You can hear the wind noise above the radio when driving at speeds above 50 mph. I had warped rotors on the car that cause the steering wheel to shake upon braking. The trunk opening space is very small and makes things difficult to put in.

I have owned this car for about two weeks and have driven it about 1000 miles. The car sounds like it has a window open when driven over 45mph. You can hear the air rush over the radio it is so bad. The steering wheel has shaking problems when I step on the breaks. The trunk opening is very small which is a drawback to the big space inside it. I was promised a cruise control for it only to find the EVS dealer is putting on an aftermarket version with no warranty. This car is a terrible car in all of these respects.

I've had this car for about a week, so long term details obviously aren't here. But I've absolutely loved it. I had already bought a G6 earlier this year and was looking to get another, but the style and color I wanted was sold just before I got to the dealer. Looking around the lot I saw the G5, a 5 speed, very basic model. I hadn't driven a stick in years, but I found it immediately easy and fun to drive. The bottom line is this: needing 2 cars to replace aged ones, we were able to get a G5 and G6 for about the price of a Hummer's front end suspension! Can't recommend them too much.

Amazing!

The rims are great stock, not cheap. I drove a Miata and miss the convertible but I am getting an installed moonroof. It is a great car to drive and I can fill up for $35 and get 300 miles. It is a looker and I love attention. If you dont like attention, dont get yellow. I test drove many, and the stick GT is the way to go, great buy.

I bought this car with high hopes getting out of a high price for repair VW. Well good thing this car came with a great warranty because I used it 4 times already. My clutch had a manufacturing defect which made it pop off the plate twice leaving me stranded. So they put in a new clutch plate. Then my rotors went at 9000 miles and had to be resurfaced, which they called normal. I've had cars go 30k and not need that. This car just feels poorly made overall. It's peppy for a 4 banger but the handling is too loose and the transmission shifts awkwardly rough compared to my old cars. I really wouldn't waste your money. I'll definitely never buy another Pontiac again.

I was skeptical in buying this car since it was only out for a month or so when I bought it...But after I did I was very satisfied with my decison. The seats take a little time to get comfortable to. Acceleration and gas mileage are great. For me, the as mileage is peaking at 25 mpg for light highway, mostly city driving which is average. The handling is great too.

Bumblebee w/4 cyl sounds like V6!

This is my 4th Pontiac purchase and the smallest one yet - but not the slowest! The GT trim definitely outguns and is better handling than my '01 Grand Am SE, which was a 4-cyl. as well. Though the Monsoon system is a little complicated to work at 1st, the steering controls make it much simpler! And the acceleration in such a slight car is awesome!

Great Coupe

Vehicle runs nice and some, takes bumps in the road just fine. Takes turns really well and have not had a problem yet. Front seats have plenty of room for people with long legs

Love My New G5

I purchased my new Pontiac G5 on 9/30/06 and I love it! It is fun to drive and handles really well. The CD/radio sound is especially awesome. It is easy to park in small spaces with the manual transmission.

Excellent Car

The Pontiac G6 is an excellent car. So far I have had no problems with my car.

G5 is a great car

What a fun car to drive! This is a nice car that is a 4 cylinder but seems like a 6 cylinder. It has a great suspension system and handles bumps and curves nicely! It doesn't hesitate to get up and go when necessary!

What a great car for the price. I wanted to "Buy American" and couldn't be more pleasantly surprised with Pontiac's newest offering. Sporty looks, comfortable ride, nimble handling, and great gas mileage from a quiet, smooth, peppy engine. It has all the features I was looking for, many unexpected on a car at this price point. Leather, heated seats, On-Star, and the Pioneer sound system with the ipod input jack are all great in this class of car.

Very pleased with G5. Nice size, fun to drive. Wish gas mileage was closer to 30 around town.

what a great car

i just bought the G5 GT with the 5 speed tranny and i love the car. the power its got the sound of the muffler when you hit the gas is the best. it rides so smooth and the cabin has very little road sound comeing in. the sound system in that car is very nice with the 10 inch sub in the trunk and the XM radio free for the first year. i got the orange sunburst color and people always are telling me how nice it looks. i found a nice car and i'm very happy with it good job pontiac!

I purchased my G5 on 8/28/06. So far I am very impressed. This 4 cylinder engine is very powerful. Shifting is very smooth with the 4 speed automatic transmission. I live in a very hilly area in New York state and have had no problems getting up these hills. If you have looked at this car then take a second look. Breathtaking!!!

My new G5

I have had my G5 for two weeks now and this is an excellent vehicle in so many ways! I had the Vibe before this and the G5 has a lot of zip and is GREAT on gas! The black interior is very sharp and the bright yellow paint provokes all kinds of comments from people when I drive around. I have the 1st one sold in my small city and I couldn't be more pleased!! I choose to buy American made vehicles, have driven in similar sized imports that belong to friends and this GM car is FAR superior!! The 12 months of XM, music downloads and cool interior accents are just an awesome bonus!!

Solid Car

I am a current owner of the G5 GT. I am very satisfied with the car. The power of the GT engine actually works well with the auto transmission. This is my first car ever to not be a manual. The best part about the car is the handling. The sport tuned suspension of the GT combined with the electronic power steering can really hold the road. All GM cars I have driven before as rentals felt like I was driving a boat. The GT does not. It handles well, feels solid and secure, and allows for quick and nimble driving. Overall the car is a solid buy. Good power, handling, looks, and comfort for the price.

My first brand new car purchase the GT

The G5 GT is my first brand new car purchase. I couldn't have picked a better car. I love it!! It is perfect for me. It's sporty, great gas mileage I average 21 mpg every day to and from work and I work 35 to 40 miles from home. These are definitely not the 4 cylinders of old. The motor has power I never expected. It's fast and it's sharp!! I like the looks I get when I pull in somewhere. No one has even seen this car yet and I have been told several times that it looks like a GTO at first glance, that's sweet. My GT has an awesome interior design. I love this car and I am very lucky to have it. Thanks Pontiac!!

Great Car

I just purchased my 2006 Pontiac Pursuit G5 (we had it in Canada before the U.S), and I absolutely love it. The 2.2 litre mated to the 4 speed automatic is just great. It shifts smoothly, and has plenty of power to spare. The interior quality is superior to any prior gm products, and the silver-colored accents on the dash board give the interior an upscale feel. Furthermore the stock radio/CD player is very good (considering the price of the car). In addition to that, the trunk is of a decent size, although the opening is a bit narrow. As far as road handling capabilities, the G5 soaks up any frost heaves and cracks in the road, transfering very little noise into the car.

Great Car at an Exceptional value

Absolutely nothing negative. I think with quality like this the American Car perception is crazy. Anyone that thinks they can they can buy a better import is smoking crack. With a standard 5 year 60,000 mile powertrain warranty, 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty makes for worry free driving.
