I have had mine for 1.5 years now and it is still exciting to drive. Lots of room for all adults and a comfortable ride on the long hauls. I haven't had any problems with the car yet. No rattles or vibrations. It is a very solid car.
This is one car I may keep for good.
2009 Pontiac G8New York - Whittier, California10/08/2010
This is a fun car to drive. It drives similar to my BMW 750Li. It really hugs the road and handles well. The steering is very sensitive and the breaking is good. The fuel economy is fair and the only draw back is that it needs to be run on 91 octane.
I bought a 2009 G8 about a year ago, and I LOVE this car! I've always liked Pontiacs since they provided good performance and styling at a reasonable cost, and I drove two Grand Prix's from 1993 to 2003. I think the G8 is the best car Pontiac produced. This car handles great, and the power in even the base V6 model, which I have, is great. I do a lot of driving on interstates in the mountains of western VA, and I have NO problem accelerating past 18-wheelers up hill. The only knock is the interior is a little cheap looking and already dated, but it's a minor drawback compared to all the great features in this car. As another reviewer stated - if this car is reborn under the Chevy label - I'm buying!
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.
