2007 Pontiac G6 GT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought it used with 50k miles on it. Steering problem which the dealer fixed. The XM Radio transmitter on the roof leaks sometimes into my light and sunroof button and onto my shifter. Overall poorly build on the inside. The mechanics seem fine for now, no major problems...at 76k miles now. I'll probably keep it until it dies...maybe I'll be able to get it up to 120k...that would be ideal. Nice cheap car, but I should have done more research and I probably would have bought another car if I did...


Best Features

The interior design isn't bad, just the materials. Looks sharp.


Worst Features

Terrible plastic interior. Trunk slams if you don't let it down gently.

2007 Pontiac G6 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I like the way my G6 looks. Otherwise, the car make me nervos. My steering has made that infamous clunking noise since I bought it, but when I bought it, the car was already out of warranty, so I just live with it. At this point, I don't even notice it anymore. I also had to stick a piece of cardboard inside my key fob because the part that holds the battery in place broke. The interior is cheap, but attractive. The car has nearly 82,000 miles on it and hasn't seriously let me down yet, but I am starting to get worried. I do have a wheel bearing going bad I think. I will keep this thing until it dies, but if I could do it over, I would do my research and buy something else.


Best Features

I really like the exterior and interior appearance. It also gets decent gas mileage.


Worst Features

GM could have done a better job on this car period. I think long term reliability will be a problem with this car. The trunk is big, but has a small opening, the wind noise when the rear windows are down is like nothing I have ever heard. It's almost painful. The key fobs are junk, the electric power steering makes me nervous, and the car feels like the brakes are still on sometimes when i'm driving. It's hard to describe, but it sure doesn't feel normal.

2007 Pontiac G6 GT 2dr Convertible (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought one of these cars off-season last year, fully loaded with the Monsoon stereo, heated leather and low mileage on the 3.9L upgraded V6. This is my mother's "fun car," replacing a workhorse S10 pickup. We test drove all sorts of cars, and were looking at a Miata when I found this at a local dealership. She fell in love with it at first sight and after driving it, had to have it. This thing moves like a scalded cat and the touring suspension soaks up the bumps great, even with the 18" wheels. The transmission is smooth and you can "row" the automatic if you want. We got it as a CPO with extended warranty, to hedge against any mechanical or electrical gremlins.


Best Features

Torque, torque, torque, and top-down fun. That's what this thing is all about. Although the styling is European, there is no air of haughtiness about this car, no premise of "luxury" although the leather seats are supportive and comfortable. It is a Pontiac - a cruiser with a little bit of attitude. It says to you, "C'mon. Hop in, put the top down, and let's go somewhere." I am surprised by how livable this car is. The cockpit is small for bigger drivers, but the power seats are great and there's plenty of legroom in back. Don't think of taking a family vacation in this car though - unless you want to carry your luggage on your lap. The trunk shrinks to nothing with the top down.


Worst Features

None, since Pontiac is no longer in business. However, if I were to modify my own car to "fix" anything, it would be upgraded interior materials and a better stereo head unit. This car was more expensive than the Sebring but the Chrysler has better fit and finish overall. And it seems that very few manufacturers offered standard iPod / AUX jacks on their stereos until 2009 or so. The GM stereos integrate the Driver Information Center into the head unit, which means that upgrading is a pain. I have been told that the 2009 model stereo will work. We'll see.

2007 Pontiac G6 GT 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I would never buy one of these cars again, or refer anyone to buy one. I bought the car in March of 2010 with 30k miles on it. It was previously a leased car so I know the maintenance was kept on it. I replaced the tires, brakes, rotors all within a few months of owning the car. Pretty soon I replaced the water pump, tranny cooler lines, intermediate steering shaft, electric steering module, and some oil cooler lines. Just last week I had my car in the service department at my work, and all of my head gaskets needed to be machined and replaced, oil was leaking everywhere!! It was horrible, if I did not have an extended warranty if would have cost me close to $6,000 total for all of the work!


Best Features

I like the way the coupe and convertible models look, but thats about it.


Worst Features

There are way too many to name. I work for a General Motors dealership and I would never buy another GM car after seeing all the things that go wrong with them in the shop.

2007 Pontiac G6 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

2007 with 85,000 with no problems, minor issues. The engine rattles with AC on, steering wheel issues under warranty, radio knobs wear off. But the interior, although plasticky, lasts and the seats covers are durable. Seats are tough, not very comfortable, exterior styling is great, interior pretty good, too. Automatic start is great. Mileage is good, I have the 4 cylinder and get 25 overall (22/29??). For a 4 cylinder it's fast. Have XM Sirius which is awesome ($16/mo), I recommend it in any vehicle. Depreciation, though, is off the chart, I am very upside down. Best to buy this car used with 40-60,000 miles for like $7 grand.... I'm selling mine, taking a hit, getting nervous bout miles.
