2009 Pontiac G8 Sedan GT 4dr Sedan (6.0L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I've had my G8 for 3 years now and it had to be one of the best decision I've ever made. If you're looking for a car that turns heads in performance and looks then this is the car for you

Review

It sucks Pontiac discontinued this beast, this car easily matches up appearance wise with even the new 2016 model cars only thing it's missing is the newer LED headlights that most cars have now. Performance wise it's still one of the best. it's a nice suttle ride with a quiet comfortable cabin. People just look and stare they don't even know what kind of car it is and that's the best part about it. I preferred this over the Chargers, challengers, mustangs and camaros. The cars you see every 5 mins on the road. I get compliments everyday, and paired with a Borla exhaust this is the cream of the crop for uncommon American muscle. Wanna be different? Go with the G8 it won't disappoint

2009 Pontiac G8 Sedan GT 4dr Sedan (6.0L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Pound for pound this is the best car for you the price. The V8 is powerful and responsive, tires get great grip, good handling the weight ratio is almost 50/50 which helps the suspension and handling but if you have the option the fe3 suspension on the GXP is better. The fact that you can buy one for under 20K and the car is competitive to hang with last model Camaro's and Mustang's that are twice the price tag is the best reason to buy this car.


Best Features

V8 power with a manual shifter, above average handling, good acceleration with a solid 18mpg or better combined. Plenty of room to seat four healthy adults, and stick their luggage in the large trunk. Last but not least 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. If you so desire a decent amount of aftermarket parts to easily upgrade 400+ WHP!


Worst Features

Limited head space, The thick A beams create significant blind spots, and the middle console is slightly lower than needed for shifting manually.

Review

I've owned my G8 GT for 4 years now and it's been everything a car guy could want, it's very fast, reliable, and easy to maintain. It's Corvette derived high performance power-plant with the 6 speed transmission is a match made in heaven! 0-60 in 5.3 sec. I'm more than satisfied with my 16/19 MPG average in the city and 20/24 in the highway while cruising at around 80-90 MPH it feels very stable and well planted. It's awesome around corners with it's 50/50 weight distribution. The interior is quiet and comfortable but definitely sports car like. I have had no mechanical issues even though it currently marks a bit over 170k miles on the odometer. It's a shame GM discontinued this car!!!!


Best Features

Reliable. Accelerates and handles better than a lot of sport cars twice the price. Deep exhaust sound. Exterior Style. Safety features.


Worst Features

No rear camera. Heads-up display should be bigger.

Review

I bought my first G8 GT in April of 09 and have 23k miles on the car. I have modified it to be a track car and it has still been extremely reliable. After a few years of ownership I wanted to garage the car over the winter and knew I would miss driving it so I bought a second one that I DD everyday.


Best Features

V8 engine. Space for adults in the bad seat with plenty of leg room. Large trunk. Good fuel economy for a V8.


Worst Features

Factory bluetooth.
