2008 Pontiac G8 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Traded an 04 Tahoe on the car and have been quite pleased to date. The v-6 has plenty of moxie with just the right amount of cool in the styling. The fuel mileage could be closer to 30+ I would think, being it has a 5 speed auto. The rest of the car is still so new to us that we are still figuring out items. At first blush the one thing that sticks out to me is the tilt wheel. Seems it could have been more akin the tilts in pick ups and suv type vehicle. Not much range of motion, especially when one is in egress mode. Getting in and out is a bit challenging. I was also a bit leery about buying a vehicle that had the (odd size) wheels. Here's hoping the tires wear well. Expensive.
The ride and feel, as if you are in a cockpit of sorts.
Not crazy about the battery placement. How does one swap it out when it comes time? Better fuel economy. The numbers we are getting should be for the 6 speed v-8.
