This car is a very unusual style - sort of like a mini-bat-mobile, so it really gets attention. It looks much more expensive than it actually is, and rides very smoothly. Has a great safety rating - I bought one for my daughter and another for my grand-daughter.

Purchased this car in Feb 2012. Wanted a roadster for a long time, but Vettes and BMWs are way outta my league price wise. Took a look at this car and totally loved it! Super fun to drive! I think the best features on it is the fact that the manual top is very easy to operate. Car as pretty good get up and go for a 4 cyclinder. Transmission shifts smoothly and quickly into gear like a roadster should. Mine has a manual 5 speed with cruise control, which is a first in a car with a stick for me. Drives and handles great! The car also really loves corners for sure with it's responsive and tight steering that gives great feedback all through the turn. Plus, I average approx. 25 mpg. I use it as a daily driver and my commute is 50 miles roundtrip each day. The interior is nice and simple. I am glad I did purchase one with leather seats. The only real complaint I have, which I have heard from other owners as well, is that the cupholders are in a very weird location. Almost behind driver and it makes it difficult to reach. And the trunk, with top down becomes almost useless. But then again, it is a roadster, not a minivan. I expected these things when looking for this type of vehicle. But all in all, especially for the price these cars go for, I am totally happy with my little American made roadster! I am, as they say, a very proud owner of this car! If you want fun, capable convertible two seater, this car is an excellent choice!
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.
