Always wanted a coveriblle but was afraid of damaging the soft top. The hard top was the perfect solution, not to mention it turns heads as the top goes down. The design keeps the wind turbulence to a minimum for the people in the front seat very well. Hit the gas and zoom your off, love the power of that V6. In the first week I had it in the parking lot at work a guy that owned an Infinity G series convertible mistook it for his car.
Car looks great and offers year-round use of a convertible, considering the hard top, front wheel drive, and even heated seats. Trunk space is a big compromise, and driver legroom is cramped, but it's a great ride. A little rough on anything less than a perfect road, and more rattles than I'd like, but after exploring for months, this was the right car for our needs. And the couple very minor issues were easily corrected quickly.
I have a 2006 G6 GT. At first sight it is a beautiful car. I get compliments daily. It's cute and sleek and people ask about it all the time. On the down side, if you have a problem you are on your own. GM is not easy to deal with, nor was the dealer, frankly. The sunroof leaked and was "fixed" 6 times before a recall was issued and it was properly fixed. The rear speakers blew, there was some water damage (again a sunroof related issue) and they were "fixed" 4 times before they were in fact fixed right. The vanity mirror on the driver side won't close tightly, it hangs, and the dealer "fixes" it then when you open it again, you hear a snap and it's hanging freely once more. There was a 'thumping' sound in the steering wheel that the dealer could never hear and therefore couldn't fix. A private garage did finally solve that problem for me. My issue is that while this vehicle is cute, gets GREAT gas mileage and is overall a nice enough car, if you have any problems you are on your own with GM. I wrote numerous letters, contacted BBB and threatened lawsuits to get repairs made. Now I use a garage that honors my warranty but isn't the dealer and I have had success in getting issues resolved. Think long and hard about purchasing this car.
