2009 Pontiac G3 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this three weeks ago. I traded in a Nissan Frontier I wanted better gas mileage and no longer needed a pickup. My local Pontiac dealer had one left, with every toy I wanted (sunroof, cruise), and toys I didn't know I wanted until I had them (OnStar, XM, lumbar support). I liked the interior, especially the seats. Sad that Pontiac is going the way of the DeSoto, but decided to take up GM's offer on remaining Pontiacs. This is fun to drive, gets good gas mileage, and I'm not worried about finding replacement parts, since it's a rebadged Aveo. Wife likes it as well, and offered to give me her Jeep Patriot for it (I turned her down). All in all, a great and easy choice for me.

Best Features

Sunroof. Seats that are actually comfortable. Fun to drive, compared to the pickup I was driving and the SUVs I have to drive at work. The sunglasses holder is a nice touch.

Worst Features

Not that it matters now, but more center console storage would have been nice.
