Bought it in Feb 08 and very happy with it. Sure enough, MPG is 33 or better in highway with automatic transmission and AC! Very handy space layout inside. Great radio and stereo. Comfortable seats and surprisingly high head room for a small car. I don't know why these aren't selling like crazy; one of the better things to have come out of GM and Pontiac.
A few issues: the cupholders on the center console are awkward, and the side mirrors need to be larger and cover better field of view towards the rear. Also, visibility when going reverse is somewhat constrained; one needs to be pretty careful when backing up.
Wonderful car. Perhaps a bit too expensive, when buying used.

I have purchased it recently, and I have enjoyed it, with a few exception.

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.
