My 2005 G6 has sentimental value, but she's a pain in my patutty. I've had brake rotor problems every 20,000 miles. I just had the steering column replaced and now she's having new problems. She seems to constantly be vibrating from some problem or another. I love her for the short periods of time she's not wobbling or vibrating, but those times are few and far between.

I bought the car about 5 months ago and I have absolutely loved it. I drive over 30 miles to work one way and it rides very smoothly and gets great gas mileage for a v6. Has great acceleration for merging and passing. Can get away from you a bit if you hit the gas too hard. Only problem I have with the car is that it does burn some oil. If driven aggressively it can burn through a lot of oil in 2000 miles or less. However I have no real complaints about the car, its a good looking, easy to drive, good on gas car that I think i'll keep for quite a few years.

Purchased the vehicle brand new. The vehicle is on its third set of tires. The vehicle is going on its third set of brakes and rotors turned. This has to be a manufacture problem. Rear window motor broken. Radio had to be replaced. Car would not start had to be towed to the dealership. Purchased a new battery last month. New windshield wipers.......the list goes on.

Where to start... After my new Monte Carlo, this car is a joke. Had a 2002 Monte and traded in for this. Never had a problem with the Monte (just high miles) so traded it for a 05 G6... Test drive was ok. After about 28k had to replace brakes in front and warped rotors, radio is a disaster, every time I start the car, the radio is somewhere else, the cd may come on at a random track, or a different radio station... weird. Dealership says never heard that one and won't fix it. When turning, a pronounced clunk is heard/felt in the front end. Speakers are CHEAP. Starter is going bad. MAY 09 Lease return, yay!

Best car I've owned so far.

by from Montgomery, AL on July 10, 2012

I bought an '05 G6 GT brand new in 2005. 102,000 miles later, I'm still very happy with the car and have had no issues with it. Runs well, easy to maintain and looks great!

As a consumer who regularly test drives cars for fun, I was completely impressed by every feature of the G6. It has the feel and styling of a luxury car on the inside, with the look and performance of a sports car on the outside. The cockpit is very driver-oriented, especially love the way the computer system tracks everything and alerts you when your fluids are low or its almost time for an oil change. I've owned the car for about 6 months now and have not had a single problem with it, not even in the middle of winter in Nova Scotia.

I bought this car used in Feb. 06 with 28,000 miles. I also drive about 72 miles(all highway) roundtrip to work 3-4 days a week. I have had nothing but problems with this car, there is a recall on the electronic rack and pinoin steering, i am on my 3rd radio, 4th set of visors, the rear passenger window mower motor went out. There is an extended start problem with the ignition that after about 7 trips to the dealership still can't be pinpointed. Then most recently said "power reduced" then wouldn't start. All I have to say is BUY THE EXTENDED WARRANTY.But I love the way it drives, it is smooth on the highway yet still handles good in the city. Maybe I just got a "bad one" but I would not recommend this car to anyone except maybe my enemies.

I love my G6. This is the best car I've owned. Before this I had a 1999 Grand Am, this blows it out of the water. The panoramic roof is so cool! I use it all the time. For those who want a car with great style, and is light on your wallet, the G6 is something you should 135% consider.
