2008 Pontiac G8 Long Term Road Test

2008 Pontiac G8 GT: Blaupunk'd (WITH ADDED VIDEO)

February 02, 2009

I just ran out to take the Pontiac G8 to the car wash. I was in a hurry so didn't bring any entertainment with me, no iPod, no CDs. The radio DJ was getting on my nerves, so I pushed the volume button on the Blaupunkt audio system. This doesn't turn the system off, it just mutes it. I was driving and didn't have time to fiddle.

But then I realized I could still hear the radio very low. So, even though the screen displays "MUTE" in a huge font, it doesn't actually mute it, it sorta mutes it. I had to turn the volume down to zero to get rid of the DJ.

I used the CD player all weekend and it sounds pretty good when you feel like listening to it.

Sorry, no picture.
