This vehicle has been excellent so far. It had low mileage when we bought it and was in great condition. We noticed two small problems after buying, which Carmax took care of with no problems.
Some of the interior plastics are cheaply made so care is needed in handling ( cup holders) and some of the flashing panels.
On the plus side, the car handles great and the included options on the GXP model are all welcome, especially the Moonsoon audio upgrade and seats.
Watch out for very low clearance on driveway entrances...you may need to come in at angle or get a bridgit curb ramp to alleviate this.
Overall much nicer and larger than the Miata, and more headroom and viewing space than the sky.

handles great. looks sharp. if you are looking for storage space, this is not for you. to bad it is no longer made, best looking model on the market.
Best little car
2009 Pontiac G5Nurse T - Wilimington, NC11/09/2017
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.
This is why now, even with all the newer more cars out there, I am considering buying another in 2017!
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.
