2005 Pontiac G6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought the car with only 20k miles on it and when we bought it we did not like the idea of buying another Pontiac because of our previous 1996 Pontiac Grand Am. Basically the Grand Am was just renamed and remodeled into a G6 and still had the same reliablity issues.. So far, we have had the usual Pontiac tranmission replacment, steering column replaced and still having popping issues, cd player broken, keyless entry stopped working (even after replacing battery inside the remote), power steering failing while driving, constant brake issue and rotor warping. This car is fun to drive its not all bad, but Pontiac just covered their issues with a new body style. no improvement.


Best Features

remote start, performance, quiet cabin


Worst Features

better transmission, better brakes, fixed steering column, fixed electronic power steering, fixed cd player, and fixed keyless entry

2005 Pontiac G6 GT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

When I first saw this car, I had to have it. It was sporty, roomy, and a good affordable price. Well, you get what you pay for!!! I have had to bring it in the shop several times....a ball joint and power steering column replacement, random lights bulbs go out all the time, keyless entry failed all of a sudden, belt replacement, shock replacement. I mean come on!!! The car isn't even that old. Might I add that I purchased the model with the panoramic sunroof...what a piece of crap. The noisiest ride ever. It is so loud I can barely stand it. I think it was cheaply made...looks good from the exterior, but runs like a cheap go-cart!! Thank god i bought an extended warranty


Best Features

Remote start. Decent sound system. Heated seats. Interior and exterior design; really like the chrome on the dash


Worst Features

Better suspension. Get rid of that terrible, noisy panoramic roof. Improve on steering

2005 Pontiac G6 GT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I can't believe all the bad reviews of the G6 GT. I bought my car with 11k miles and am selling it with 61k. I have had no major problems whatsoever. I have loved this car. I am only getting rid of it because I need something bigger to haul twin babies. The G6 has been reliable, consistent, fun, and a car I have been proud to own. The gas mileage is incredible. I averaged well over 30 mpg on the highway. I only wish I could convince my husband to sell his truck so I could keep my car.


Best Features

Sunroof, heated leather seats, remote start, reliability, 6 disc CD, spacious interior, sporty rear spoiler.


Worst Features

None.

Review

I purchased this car in 2005 new. Now it has 107,230 miles. It has been a great car. Mine has the 4 panel sunroof, which I love. The 6 CD in- dash 300 Watt stereo is really nice. Mine is metallic silver, which shines like a new dime in the sunlight. The performance is great! 200 HP with plenty of torque. The gas mileage is 36-38 at 60 MPH. To and from work in traffic I receive 24-26 MPG. The car is the perfect size and has plenty of room for everything. I need to get the 100,000 mile tune-up, but it runs fine. I have only had to replace the tires and oil. I am sick that Pontiac is going to quit making this car.


Best Features

Sunroof, stereo, looks, fuel economy, and dependability.


Worst Features

Opt for the leather interior.
