Love this car. Had it for about two weeks now and everybody notices it. Still having to get used to having no space at all, but from what ppl tell me space is not the reason to buy this car. It has pick up and go galore. The top isn't hard to put up. Only downside to the space is that to close the trunk you have to walk to each side of the car and lock the roof on to the trunk besides that best car ever.

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!
Pontiac G8 GT

A little about me and why I chose this car. I am not a Pontiac fan, but there are two Pontiacs which I currently own. Pontiac Fiero GT and Pontiac G8 GT. With an extra addition in my family my Fiero was not, lets say a family car, I had to find something else; something that would be unique and will not put a burden on my budget. After two months of research I stumbled upon a spectacle called Pontiac G8 GT. This car had everything I wanted: great sporty look, lots of power, unbelievable amount of room in the cabin and trunk, unique because not a lot of these cars were released and not a lot of people have them, price is unbeatable for the item which I was getting. Then my concern was the fuel consumption, but it wasn�t one of the high priorities on my list, but I still considered it. With expectation of spending a little more money on fuel I bought the car, but so far I drove 3000 miles on it and the average miles per gallon (MPG) is 16 both highway and city combined. If you ask me that�s very good for a V8, 6.0L engine. For those who don�t know me and most of you don�t, I do not drive in a way to save fuel lets stop at that.
Pros: Looks (Outside and inside), runs, handles, feels (Inside) great! If you want a car which turns heads, has power of a Corvette and still roomy for you and your family, but you don't want to spend lot of money, Pontiac G8 GT is the car to have. Surprisingly 16 MPG over 3k miles of both highway and city.
Cons: No Bluetooth on my 2008 model. Lock on the inside glove compartment is flimsy and will open when you drive if you have a lot of heavy stuff inside of it.
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.
Since their inception, muscle cars have transformed ordinary drives into adventures. Their beefy V8 engines, impressive performance characteristics, and aggressive stances make enthusiastic owners think up new reasons to grab their keys and take their next drive. If you want to reignite your passion for driving and experience the best muscle car the world currently has to offer, you’ll need to wade through the abundant options. Of all your four-wheeled options, the Pontiac G8 and Dodge Charger are worth a place at the top of your search list.
