This is a great car...not the most stylish. It's a mom mobile, but the cargo room is great, it's easy to get kids in and out as it's higher than a normal car and the gas mileage is awesome. I get 32 MPG on the highway, sometimes higher. I have a 2006 and the tires that came with it were worthless, but other than that, we like it. It's basically a Toyota for a Pontiac price.
This car is just fun to drive. My wife and I take it out on country roads and just enjoy the ride.
2010 Pontiac VibeBeth - Raleigh NC12/07/2010
The car is very comfortable and has a surpising amount of pep for a 4 cylinder. Better than some of the 6 cylinders I test drove.
I have not had a chance to drive on a long trip to test the highway mileage but around town I average 28mpg. I love that!
The only complaints I have are that the paint is a bit thin and even though I have only had the car less than 2 months any rock that pops up from the road lhas left a mark. The motor in the CD player is noisy also. All is all it is a very good value.
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.
