2009 Pontiac G5Nurse T - Wilimington, NC11/09/2017
I purchased this car used in 2012 when it had about 60k miles on it. For the next 5+ years I enjoyed this car beyond belief. It was recently totaled and I am devastated.
This 5 speed was so fun to drive. It was a primary car for me and I really enjoyed the responsiveness of this car.
Not to mention it was quite a looker and the only thing that I added was aftermarket rims.
The biggest pro was that this car was extremely reliable and I had no major issues at all. I maintained it well and it served me well. I had planned to drive it forever and estimate that I could have easily gotten another 100k out of her.
This is why now, even with all the newer more cars out there, I am considering buying another in 2017!

I would recommend this car to anyone. It has alot of comfort for 2 booster seats and 1 adult in the rear seat. Its an economical car with the luxary feel.
2009 Pontiac G5 GT
2009 Pontiac G5Blondie9597 - Four Oaks, NC12/22/2010
I just recently purchased the 09 g5 GT about 2 months ago. I bought it because I was looking for something cute, decent priced, and good on gas. This is my first "real" car being bought so i wanted to make sure it was what i wanted. As for overall the car is nice, quiet and has the sporty look I was going for. I thought the gas mileage would be better then what it is, I was expecting somewhere around 31mpg highway but i only get around 28ish... the automactic read out in the car states i get 28 close to 29 highway when i'm driving on the highway alot but i know i dont get that much bc i will watch my needle drop fast. The pickup it has isnt as much as i had expected either. its a decent pickup but no nascar start off. I love the car overall though, every car is going to have its flaws but for the price and the look of what i need it works well. I wouldnt trade it. The interior is perfect too! People warned me about the truck space before i got the car but i'm young and dont really need alot of trunk room but i did learn..you cant put anything too big in bc it wont fit in the trunk opening. I think its a perfect car for a young driver like myself or someone older or without any kids. I did add a tint to the car after purchasing so the windows arent normally that dark.
Though its tenure was short-lived and it was only available in the US for a single model year, the Pontiac G8 is still largely considered one of the best American sedans produced in recent history. The G8 was first developed and produced in Australia, where it was known as the Holden Commodore. It was rebadged for the North American market in 2008, where it replaced the Pontiac Bonneville.
