Vehicle: 2007 Pontiac G6 GTP 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)

If I didn't have a mechanic boyfriend I'd be in a lot of debt. Don't just don't.




Do not buy this car!

Vehicle: 2007 Pontiac G6 GT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I know I'm not the only one with issues with their '07 G6 as many of my friends have them too and continually have the same issues. If you live in the city, it's nearly impossible to curb park without popping the beads on the tires. Constantly had flat tires, and always when it was 40 below in WI. On top of that, I basically rebuilt the car and put in all new brakes, wheel bearings, roters, brake lines, tranny lines, etc. up until I traded it in when I started to have radiator/antifreeze problems. I DO NOT recommend this car to ANYONE. Sure, it's sexy as hell and goes fast, but it is not reliable in any way.




Good ole car

Vehicle: 2007 Pontiac G6 GTP 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)

I needed to replace a 2008 G6 that had only 70000 miles and I put all of them on it. It was totaled in an accident. In "car shopping" through Edmomds, the G6 was a car that I put into the search. I found several of years 2007 to 2010. Many were high mileage. I found the one I bought with mileage of 58,200. It was one owner and 50 miles from me. It is a V6 vs the 4 cyl. that I had before. However I had a 1994 Grand Am that was a V6 and I loved it and traded it with 200,000 miles. It's only a month, but the 2007 looks good.




Pretty good car but wouldn't own again

Vehicle: 2007 Pontiac G6 GT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I've had my G6 GT for a year now and it has 114,500k miles on it. It's a very quiet drive which I love but the fuel economy for a daily driver is less than exciting. I have to fill up very frequently and it runs out as quickly as I do so. I would love it if I used it as a distance driver, it's great on highway mileage. It doesn't notify you when there is low coolant or any other fluids except oil and even then it only comes on the radio bar, not even in the driver's line of vision. No oil light. She has some real get up and go in her if you let her accelerate properly and goes very fast which I like but it is a problem in icy environments as you need to start very slow and she likes to take off. I've replaced my sparkplugs which was no biggy but now my suspension is having issues and making horrendous noises and GM is giving me a hard time with a lack of diagnosis, just that it's the suspension. It's been incredibly reliable however and would make a great first car or distance driver, not so much a daily driver.

Best car i've ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Pontiac G6 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I bought a 2007 G6 sedan (base) brand new in 06, just came on the lot. I have had the car for 9 years and I have put 195,000 miles on my G6 and it's still going. The only major repairs was a leak in the gas tank ($800) and a new catalytic converter (at 190,000 miles for $1,000). Other than that, just normal maintenance. The paint has held up well and the the dash looks like it just rolled off the show room floor. I have owned 3 Toyotas and 2 Nissans, and again, this is the best car I have ever owned. It has never broken down or left me stranded, and again...very low maintenance costs. On top of that, I average around 22 mph in the city and on the hwy I still get up to 35 mph (higher than what the manufacturer rates). The "design", although 9 years old, is still in "style". It's a fun car to drive and own. Maybe I was just lucky and got a "great" one, but I am thinking of buying another one when I hit 200,000.

Edmunds Summary Review of the 2007 Pontiac G6 GTP Sedan

  • With the 2007 Pontiac G6, GM's performance division offers an enticing entry in the midsize sedan, coupe and convertible segments thanks to distinctive features (including a retracting hardtop for the convertible), sharp styling, a roomy interior and solid performance.

  • Pros

    Spacious rear seat, peppy yet fuel-efficient V6 engines, sporty suspension tuning, retractable hardtop in convertible model, available panoramic sunroof in sedan.

  • Cons

    Some low-grade interior plastics, numb electric steering in base sedan, panoramic sunroof eats up rear-seat headroom.

  • What's New for 2007

    For the 2007 Pontiac G6, there are substantial under-the-skin changes. The GTP version, which is now offered as a coupe or sedan only, is powerful this year, thanks to a new, all-aluminum 3.6-liter V6 with variable valve timing. The engine produces 252 horsepower and is matched to a new six-speed automatic transmission. The engine in last year's GTP, a 3.9-liter V6, is now an upgrade option for the GT trim. Pontiac has also increased the output for the GT's standard 3.5-liter V6 by 23 hp this year (16 hp for convertible models). Other G6 changes for 2007 include expanded availability of side curtain airbags, hydraulic power steering for GT models (versus the former numb-feeling electric power setup) and a couple of new sport- and luxury-themed packages.

What's New for 2007

For the 2007 Pontiac G6, there are substantial under-the-skin changes. The GTP version, which is now offered as a coupe or sedan only, is powerful this year, thanks to a new, all-aluminum 3.6-liter V6 with variable valve timing. The engine produces 252 horsepower and is matched to a new six-speed automatic transmission. The engine in last year's GTP, a 3.9-liter V6, is now an upgrade option for the GT trim. Pontiac has also increased the output for the GT's standard 3.5-liter V6 by 23 hp this year (16 hp for convertible models). Other G6 changes for 2007 include expanded availability of side curtain airbags, hydraulic power steering for GT models (versus the former numb-feeling electric power setup) and a couple of new sport- and luxury-themed packages.

Introduction

Although 2007 marks just the third year of the Pontiac G6, a number of changes should further boost its appeal among style-conscious and performance-minded shoppers. Based on GM's "Epsilon" platform, the G6 shares its basic architecture with the Chevrolet Malibu Maxx, itself a lengthened version of the Malibu sedan. As such, the Pontiac G6 offers passengers plenty of room to stretch out thanks to its long, 112.3-inch wheelbase. In addition, that generous span also makes for a smooth and stable ride. This year brings more power for the base 3.5-liter V6, which provides up to 224 horsepower, while the performance leader GTP gets a new 3.6-liter 252-hp mill. Another improvement is the adoption of hydraulic power steering in the GT, which promises more road feel than the former numb electric setup that only the base sedan retains.

Along with eye-catching style, the 2007 Pontiac G6 offers sun worshippers a rare option, a retractable-hardtop convertible. One of just two such vehicles offered for under $30,000, (the VW Eos is the other) the G6 convertible's retractable hardtop promises the security, styling and quietness of a coupe when the top is up. The transformation to alfresco mode takes place in fewer than 30 seconds with the touch of a button, and the car's rear seat is still roomy enough for two adults. The main drawback to this hardtop design is that it takes up considerable trunk space when lowered.

While the spotlight may be on the G6 convertible, the G6 coupes and sedans hold their own in the midsize car class as well. With more performance on tap, in addition to its spacious cabin, unique features and competitive pricing, the stylish 2007 Pontiac G6 lineup offers enticing alternatives to status quo choices like the Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Pontiac G6 four-door sedan is available in four trim levels: Value Leader (known as "base w/1SV"), G6 (known as "base"), GT and GTP. Coupes come in either GT or GTP trims and the convertible comes only as a GT. The G6 Value Leader sedan comes surprisingly well equipped with 16-inch wheels; air-conditioning; power windows, locks and mirrors; a 60/40-split-folding rear seat; a CD player; a four-way power driver seat and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. The standard G6 adds 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control and keyless entry. The GT adds an eight-speaker Monsoon sound system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, foglamps, a sport-tuned suspension, a rear spoiler and chrome wheels. Pontiac G6 GTPs feature 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler (sedan only), automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, XM satellite radio and a six-way power driver seat.

Notable options include a remote start system, power-adjustable pedals and OnStar telematics. There are also a few theme packages available. The Sun and Sound Package outfits the G6 with an in-dash CD changer and a sunroof. On the standard G6 sedan, opting for the Sport Package adds the 3.5-liter V6, antilock disc brakes and hydraulic power steering. For the GT trim, this package adds the 3.9 V6, 18-inch wheels, stability control and a six-speed manual transmission. The Premium Package for the GT and GTP trims features leather seating, heated front seats and remote vehicle start.

Powertrains and Performance

Standard power for the base sedans (Value Leader and G6) comes from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 169 hp and 162 pound-feet of torque. The standard G6 sedan is eligible for an optional 3.5-liter V6, which puts out 224 hp and 220 lb-ft (217 hp and 217 lb-ft in the GT convertible). All GT cars have this V6 as standard equipment. A four-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels is standard with either of these engines. Optional on the GT is a 3.9-liter V6 (240 hp, 240 lb-ft) that can be paired with the standard four-speed auto or an optional six-speed manual transmission. The performance-oriented GTP series comes with a 252-hp (251 lb-ft) 3.6-liter V6 matched to a six-speed automatic that offers manual-shift capability. Fuel economy ratings for the 3.5-liter V6 are impressive at 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway.

In terms of power, the four-cylinder Pontiac G6 compares favorably with competitors' base engines but is lacking in refinement. The fuel-efficient 3.5-liter V6 offers plenty of torque down low for easy passing and merging, but can also get a bit thrashy at high revs. The 3.9-liter V6 offers plenty of power and the attraction of a six-speed manual gearbox. Alas, the transmission's shifter is rather clunky to operate. As expected, the GTP offers the most performance and sophistication with its impressive output and manually shiftable automatic transmission.

Safety

Four-wheel disc brakes are standard on all 2007 Pontiac G6s, while ABS and traction control are standard on all but the Value Leader ("base w/1SV") and standard G6 sedans. You can get ABS as an option on the standard sedan, but it's not available at all on the Value Leader. Full-length side curtain airbags are standard on every G6 except the convertible. Front seat-mounted side airbags are optional on all but the Value Leader. The GTP features a standard stability control system ("StabiliTrak"), which is optional on the GT.

In NHTSA crash testing, the G6 sedan and coupe earned five stars (the best rating possible) for protection of the driver in frontal impacts and four stars for protection of the front passenger. Side-impact testing in a sedan equipped with the side airbags resulted in five stars for front and rear passengers. In IIHS crash testing, the G6 sedan received a top score of "Good" for its protection in frontal-offset impacts. Side-impact tests conducted by that agency resulted in an "Acceptable" rating (the second highest) on a G6 with the side-curtain airbags. However, those without the side airbags rated "Poor," the lowest possible score.

Interior Design and Special Features

The interior of the Pontiac G6 features stylish seating with generous side bolsters to hold you in place during aggressive cornering. The gauges showcase Pontiac's signature red type, and are set in an attractive cluster with chrome rings. Plenty of chrome and faux metal accents brighten up the interior. Materials quality is a step below class standards, with cheap plastics on the dash and console. A unique option on the G6 sedan is a panoramic sunroof that opens in four sections and remains exposed when it's open so it looks like a roof spoiler. Rear-seat room is generous no matter which body style you choose.

Driving Impressions

With hydraulic power steering now standard on the GT and GTP and optional on the standard G6 sedan, our previous gripe about the G6's numb steering feel (due to the electric power-assist system) has been addressed on all but the Value Leader sedan. Regardless of trim level, the G6's suspension returns a surprisingly sporty ride, which is taken to a higher level in the more firmly sprung GT and GTP. Choose either one and you'll enjoy flat, composed cornering with a minimum of body sway while pressing on a twisty road. The G6's solid platform makes for a flex-free ride over the bumps and the convertible's insulated hardtop allows the G6 drop top to rival the coupe for serenity while cruising at freeway speeds.
