GREAT HANDLING & HIGHWAY MILEAGE, SPORTY 4 DOOR

THIS IS THE 4TH PONTIACT I'VE OWNED. I LOVE THEM!! THIS CAR HANDLES VERY WELL, ESPECIALLY IN WET OR SLICK CONDITIONS. IT GETS GREAT HIGHWAY FUEL MILEAGE, HOWEVER, THE CITY MILEAGE IS NOTHING TO BRAG ABOUT. I HAVE THE OPTION OF USING FLEX FUEL, IT TYPICALLY CUTS MY FUEL MILEAGE BY ABOUT 5 MILES TO THE GALLON. THE INTERIOR IS VERY COMFORTABLE, I AM ABOUT 5 FOOT TALL AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM REACHING EVERYTHING COMFORTABLY, MY HUSBAND IS ALMOST 6 FOOT AND HE IS ALSO COMFORTABLE DRIVING OR RIDING IN IT. HE CAN EVEN SIT COMFORTABLY IN THE BACK SEAT! THE TRUNK IS SPACIOUS, THE BACK CENTER SEAT IS A LITTLE TOO NARROW FOR A CARSEAT TO EASILY FIT, HOWEVER THE SIDE SEATS ACCOMIDATE ONE JUST FINE. MY G6 IS A V6 GT AND IT HAS PLENTY OF GET UP AND GO EITHER FROM A COMPLETE STOP OR PULLING OUT TO PASS SOMEONE. OVER ALL, THIS IS A GREAT CAR! I LOVE MINE AND I'M HEART BROKEN THAT GM STOPPED PRODUCTION! I HOPE THIS HAS BEEN HELPFUL FOR ANYONE LOOKING AT A G6.

Love, love, love my '09 Pontiac G6 Gt Coupe! Liked the look of it on the Internet and when I first saw it in person, I knew it was the one for me. I commute and put on over 20,000 miles per year. Driver seat has lumbar support and creates the most comfortable driving for me (I'm just over 5'.) Everything is within easy reach. Handles better than any other coupe that I've owned, especially considering northern Wisconsin winter driving conditions of snow, slush and ice. Would like a spoiler and a place for my purse inside, but a girl has to complain about something. Has all the bells and whistles and is a great drive.

Pontiac has continued the tradition of agressive exterior styling combined with a zippy engine and tight handling. I have owned both the Grand AM and Grand Prix models and the G6 is very comparable to a slightly smaller Grand AM. The 3.5L V6 in the GT model provides plenty of power and with the 4spd automatic with driver shift control this car is fun to drive. The G6 comes equiped with a nice set of features such as, On Star, tire preasure monitoring and remote start. So far I have found only a few cons. The front seats are very hard and uncomfortable. The interior styling especialy the look of the gauges is cheap looking. Bottom line is the G6 is a head turner and very enjoyable to drive.

Safe Car

While traveling on an interstate going 55 mph, the car to my right decided to change lanes and clip the right rear of my G-6 (classic pit manuever). I spun out of control and kept going round and round. I held onto the steering wheel while spinning out of control trying to keep control of the car. Finally, the car left the interstate and landed in a ditch barely missing a large wall of rocks on the driver side. I was ok, not a scratch on me. The car sustained body damage but was repaired and runs and looks brand new. I was shocked a small car like this kept me safe. When the state trooper arrived, he stated I was lucky going that fast and being hit I should have been injured or killed. Great car!

overall needs more performance for money other then that great car. If potntiac super charged the gxp and gtp series of the G6 and kept the same price sales would have 3 folded on GTP and GXP and for the 3.5L and the 3.9L they should have had somwhere along 200hp for base model G6, 250HP for GT 3.5L, 260HP for 3.9L and 300HP for 3.6L GTP excentially a supercharged 3.9L thats my opinion on the matter but obviously, They did other wise i currently own a 2007 G6 GT 3.5L its an awsome car except for the power. when people think pontiac they think power, and affordability, gotta give the people what they want, Because honestly id trade all the chrome interior for 25HP increase, should have based it off the grand prixx performance whise. And now Pontiac is being discontinued and GM is forced to sell the Camaro at insanly low prices just to stay in buisness go figure somone messed up bad when deciding the G6's power

We bought a 2009 G6 convertible for my wife with only 9500 miles in like new condition. When the folding hardtop is up, you would never know the car is a convertible. It is quiet and solid on the inside. When the top is down, the car is still solid with no squeaks or rattles. I would like to have a bit more power from the 3.9L, but she says it runs fine for her and since it is her car this will not be an issue. Overall it is a very nice car and one that I would recommend to a friend.

IM TYPING IN CAPS FOR EASIER READABILITY...I BOUGHT THIS CAR BECAUSE I ALWAYS WANTED ONE. MINE IS A 2009 G6 GT 2-DOOR IT HAS 90000 MILES ON IT I PAID $7,999.00 FOR IT. SO FAR I LOVE THIS CAR GREAT HANDLING AROUND ALOT OF THE CURVY ROADS WE HAVE AROUND HERE. RIDE IS VERY COMFORTABLE, GOOD ROOM IN THE BACKS SEAT IT'S ACTUALLY USABLE AND PLENTY OF TRUNK SPACE. GREAT TORQUE AND HORSEPOWER FOR A 3.5 LITER ENGINE. TAKE ONE FOR A TEST DRIVE, I'M GUESSING THE 4 DOOR ISN'T MUCH DIFFERENT BUT I DONT KNOW.

Finally found a 2007 Pontiac g6 retractable convertible that was affordable and in good shape. Never owned a Pontiac before but after 10 days its been all I'd hoped for and more. It's been dependable, fast, sporty and a blast to drive. The dealership did work with me on a fair price and put a new set of tires on the car to seal the deal. I'd spent a year and a half searching for the right car and after many disappointments I have to believe perseverance has paid off. Cars.com helped me find it!

Everybody should own this one

Drive 2,200 miles a month in this car. The front bumper cover sticks out pretty far; and low to the ground too, so stay back from the curbs. Drives good, runs good, a lot of people look when I pull up. The car comes out with 25,000 mile tires, so you'll have to buy something better. And when you buy, color really matters.

Bought new during "Clunker" trade-in era. Got $4500, plus reduced sticker, plus $3200 rebate! Runs great, sporty, handles like a roadster, fab satellite radio, plus On-Star. Nice interior was the clincher, though. Our third Pontiac and have gotten good service from all of them (Gran Prix and Montana).
