I drive across country every 30 days - and I drive a 2008 G6 4cyl. Get about 32mpg on average, and have a stylish, confortable car. Never has left me stranded. I have XM radio - so I listen to alot of talk shows... sound system is very good. I bought it used from a fleet company - great value!!!

I purchaced the GXP model. I was surprised that this car was quick off the line. It has pretty good gas milege. The only small issue that I have is that when you step on the gas too hard,plenty of torque steer will be the result. Other than that,its a nice car!

After seeing that there are no other reviews on your website of a G6 convertible, I decided I had to write one. I waited 54 years to get my first convertible, and this one was worth the wait! It's performance red, has the base V-6 (which is plenty lively for our needs and gets 28+ mpg on the highway), remote starting, and XM radio. My only regret is that I didn't get more bells and whistles on it, like leather seats and rain sense wipers. I thought I'd just use it to go to the golf course and back, but it became our road car (which meant that our 2005 Cadillac DHS stayed home!) - road trip from Illinois to Colorado, several trips to San Antonio, where we now live, and lots of local exploring. I have the top down every day it's not raining, and it's still working fine. I think GM made a big mistake discontinuing Pontiac, which I now call US Motors - I hate the idea that I won't be able to replace this one with a newer model.

G6 The North American Bang for a Buck!

by from British Columbia on June 15, 2009

Awesome vehicle inside and out! The interior is fantastic and the exterior turns heads. Pick-up is fast and is smooth on the road.

It's the car I've always wanted.

I purchased my almost new 2007 Red G6 convertible in Feb 2011. It only had 20k miles and even smelled new. It has alot of power with the 3.9 engine and has every option. My family thinks it's beautiful and my friends are envious. Monday this week I was in a drive thru with my pup in the passenger seat and I hit the button and dropped the top. All the people within eye shot watched liked little kids. The seats hug your body and the sound system is so hot. It is the best of sport, luxury and of course sun and fun. This is my fun 2nd car and I really believe it will be more than collectable. Hey, with Pontiac badge gone, and a Chevy Cruz going for 24k, you might as well buy a low mileage cool car like this beauty. Life is way too short to not have a G6.

I just bought a used 2008 G6 4 Door to replace my 2006 G6 which was totaled. This is actually my 3rd G6 I've owned since 2005 and was sad when they stopped making them. Good things about the car - good looking, handles well, hugs the road, roomy interior, V6 is fast with good average MPG (about 27 for me), they have never completely broken down for me. Bad things - the rotors seem to warp about every 25K miles (or every summer for me it seemed) and the power steering went at 85K miles on my last 2006 model. I hear this is common. But factoring in these problems, they are still good sedans for the money.

decent small GM car

the G6 fit the bill as a nice small car, an upgrade from our Cavalier but still good economy and size. So far, reliability and performance has been typical GM. (you can interpret that any way you like...

Got it slightly used at 19,000miles. Have had it for 18 months, not one problem. Good performance, and paid a low price. Gas mileage is average, could be better. It looks good as well, and the leather seats are very nice. Its the second pontiac i've owned and both have worked out nicely.
