This is an overall "ok" vehicle. Sleek look, good handling, decent MPG. However keep in mind it is a GM and has a horrible depreciation rate (like most American vehicles) but for the money you get what you pay for. Many people have had this problem and there has been an official recall for the 05-06 G6 models, the brake lamps may not operate properly because of a corrosion in the wiring harness. Therefore not warning following drivers that the vehicle is braking and can possible lead to a collision. Anyway, it's supposed to be "fixed" for free so if you have that problem, there ya go. 3 star rating overall, nothing special -- decent car.
I love my G6. I love the space and the interior. It's got awesome get up and go and smooth handling. The only down side to the car is the gas mileage. It definitely makes you stay home and plan out all your errand trips as to not waste gas. Right now it gets about 19 to 23 miles per gallon and does much better on road trips that require even speeds of 65 or higher at about 26-27 miles per gallon. I still love the car though. Being 6'4, it has plenty of room. I would recommend the car to friends, but only if they do not plan on making small trips all over because of the amount of money spent on gas.
I purchased my Pontiac G6 GT V6 brand new off the lot. Within the first year of owning the car, I started having the thumping noise in the steering wheel. The dealer fixed it (thank God for the warranty). They had to replace the rack and pinion, which is a major repair for a brand new car. It took about 2 years for the thumping sound to return. I have read several reviews on the Pontiac G6 and they all seem to have to have this steering issue. Why GM has not issued a recall is beyond me. While the car is pretty on the outside, the inside is very cheaply made. If you were to compare this car to the interior of an Altima, Camry, or Accord, you would see that GM did not meet the standard for this level car. The interior paint comes off of the radio/heat console. I think that this is a "cute" car, but I won't buy American again. For a V6, it gets ok mileage. I generally get 25 miles per gallon. One thing that I can say about this car is that I have 110,000 miles on this car and the service stations always tell me that my car is in good shape for the number of miles. If this car last to 175,000 miles I will be happy. Then I'll get rid of it. Overall I would say buy a Honda or Toyota.
