Pleasantly surprised

2007 Pontiac G6 Simon Allaway - Chesterton, IN 07/12/2010

First of all, being born in Britain I am used to cars being small and under-powered. But this also means a car that has generally good handling as we're used to ripping around roundabouts and tight country lanes. In the ten years I've been in the US I haven't seen many US designed and built cars under $20,000 that qualify as "European". That is until you get to the Pontiac G6. I had rented a Pontiac Grand Prix a few years back and was impressed. Then last year I got to drive a G6 (in 2.0l form, not the 3.5l V6) which was nice in terms of build, but not quick enough. But that experience was enough that when I was in the market for a reasonably priced used car, I first searched for a G6. I found a 3.5l V6 Pontiac G6, which had previously been a lease car, and was in immaculate condition with not a scratch on it. Add to that the fact that it had only done 9,500 miles and I knew it was a great deal. The engine and gearbox combo is great. With a light foot she's a nice easy ride that positively glides everywhere. But if you keep the accelerator towards the floor and she'll keep the revs high and move very quickly. It's especially good at accelerating between 50-70 when you just want to pass that irritating guy in the middle lane. It appears the gearbox was designed just for this maneuver. The disc brakes all around give good stopping ability too. Handling is great around town and as I implied earlier evokes a more European feel. Even my father who is a devout Audi fan commented on how firm it felt. On a few occasions, in the wet especially, you can get some under steer in low speed bends. But I would expect that, rather than over steer, in a road car. The driving experience is most pleasant inside. Visibility out front is more than adequate, but rear-view isn't perfect due to the head restraints in the back. I am considering removing them temporarily as they create a blind spot. As for downsides there are a few concerning aerodynamics. When you have your driver's side window open a few inches you can get a very load and unsettling buffeting noise at about 40mph. You can get rid of it by also lowering the rear passenger window about the same amount. Secondly, it's not the easiest car to get into if you are 6 foot 3 like me, but once inside it is very comfortable with plenty of headroom.

Best little car

2009 Pontiac G5 Nurse T - Wilimington, NC 11/09/2017

I purchased this car used in 2012 when it had about 60k miles on it. For the next 5+ years I enjoyed this car beyond belief. It was recently totaled and I am devastated. This 5 speed was so fun to drive. It was a primary car for me and I really enjoyed the responsiveness of this car. Not to mention it was quite a looker and the only thing that I added was aftermarket rims. The biggest pro was that this car was extremely reliable and I had no major issues at all. I maintained it well and it served me well. I had planned to drive it forever and estimate that I could have easily gotten another 100k out of her. Great car! This is why now, even with all the newer more cars out there, I am considering buying another in 2017!

Reasons to Buy a Pontiac G8
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.
