I purchased this car to replace a car that was on its last leg. After reading reviews from a website like this I decided to purchase one. It was a well made decision. This car is very reliable. I lived 2 miles from work and found out the hard way how bad the car was on gas, especially with local driving. However on the highway I was able to get about 25 mpg. Things I noticed before trading it in was it began to burn oil. The indicator advised me of low oil well before the 3000 mile recommended oil change and I used synthetic blend. Overall. It was a great car.
LOVED the remote starter and the onstar feature as well as the 200hp motor (base). Stereo system was nice and loud.
Fuel economy. But no need to complain when Pontiac is no longer in production. However the G8 was bought back as the Chevy SS. Im sure fuel economy was rectified
