2008 G6 GT Convertible 3.9
I found this car on a BMW dealership's used car lot in 2018. I fell in love with it at first site. The car was in immaculate condition and was priced fairly reasonably at $8,900.00. I just got my first VA disability check and was able to purchase it with no credit. I am always proud to drive this car. It is a hardtop convertible. It is sporty but not a sports car. It gets horrible gas mileage as I primarily do city driving and have averaged just about 15 mpg. But I own it now and KBB is supposedly just $2250.00. I don't think you'll find one in this condition (as of this writing Jan 21) for less than 8500. Rightly so because it is a hardtop convertible. At about 89,000 the tonneau cover covering the whole behind the headrests blew off and I continued operating the top for some time. This further damaged the top and mechanism forcing me to have to replace the whole assembly. Fortunately I found a dealer in Clearwater (Autonation Chevy) who was competent and did an outstanding job. So for $1,500.00 I repaired my top on my $2300.00 car and I love it again. Only problem is tire pressure warning system. I also had to replace the thermostat in the engine ($250.00) and bought new performance brakes and rotors on Amazon and had those installed total price $300.00. And I still love it. It is the prettiest car in my parking lot and I always get complements on it whenever I stop at Sams club for gas. It is quick enough but as all the original reviewers put it, it is a family car whose top can come down. It has stood up to at least 6 grueling Florida seasons three of them in front of my condo exposed to the elements and no problems. I currently have just shy of 94,000 miles on it and wouldn't dream of replacing it any time soon because anything else would cost three or four times as much for the same value. And I didn't mention the Monsoon sound system which is amazing. I use my phone with a bluetooth dongle and quite simply the sound system sounds better than any other car in 30 to 40 k price range (I have tried premium sound systems in the Hyundai Genesis and Kia products) , the Mustang and a few others and quite simply this machine has an amazing sound system. Even though the FM radio stopped working a year ago, Spotify and Sirius XM always rock and that Bluetooth dongle does the trick and notably most phones now have Dolby Atmos which works with the Bluetooth dongle so no reason to get a new car just so you can get an infotainment system which will be obsolete in three years. Only thing now is to upgrade the interior a bit and perhaps some touchup paint on the hood and rear deck lid - seeing as how I've had a mechanical carwash membership for the car for about 2 1/2 years and it has been washed every other day that entire time.... just goes to show how much I love this car.
Good ole boys selling good ole cars
I loved driving this car. Fast when I want and not a bad style either. The price is about right with my trade this will work out fine.
Great basic car
This car is very basic but is also just enough to stay happy with. Rides nice and has pretty comfortable seats. Had no issues with it at 115k miles. Went through 2 front end accidents with minimal damage
