2008 Pontiac G6 Value Leader 4dr Sedan w/1SV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Low gas mileage. Head room is average, so if you are tall this is not your car! Looks great with top up and down. I get a lot of compliments and head turns because there aren't many of them out there! It is fun to drive and the sound system is great. Getting in and out of the backseat is difficult, but this is not a car you buy for a family or for frequent trips with groups. Getting groceries is ok with the top up, but of course with the top down the groceries have to go in the back seat because the top is in the trunk. Surprisingly good trunk space with the top up though! Overall this is a great convertible and the hard top is a great thing for those of us with cats! The only negative is that the trunk is very heavy because of the roof lift mechanism, and the trunk eventually "wears out" in that it won't stay up when you lift it. A friend with the same car said it is very expensive so e to fix that so you just live with it.

Review

I had my G6 almost 5 years & put a lot of miles on it due to my commute and l loved if. My husband wants to keep me in a car under warranty so we just traded it. I am sad!
The car drove extremely well. I put over 140000 miles on with no major problems. It was a very nice car. Pontiac needs to come back!

Review

I drove my '08 G6 GT for exactly two years (to the day) before any major mechanical repairs were needed (I had to replace the engine but it was due to the mechanics error, not the car). In general the car is a great car but what really got me was the safety. I always swore if I got in an accident in that car I would be dead or extremely injured, due to the bucket seats and the car sitting so low. Last month I was in a 4 car pile up on a highway 301. I was the middle vehicle (the smushed one) and had an F-150 slam full force into the back of me and ultimately on top of me. Because of the body of the car the trunk actually caught the F-150 and stopped it from going any further on top of my car (opposed to a Honda Civic or Toyota Camry which the truck would have driven right over and crushed the backseat). Although the car was totaled (obviously, I was SMUSHED BAD) it did everything it needed to. The engine shut itself down to prevent a fire from a gas leak or anything else, the underneath of the car took most the damage from the front, opposed to smashing everything into the dash. Not a single window broke. Right after the accident everyone involved got out, including myself, and just stared at the car in amazement that it held up the way it did. I never write reviews or go to the extent of doing this but it's the least I could do for the car. Hands down I would buy the car 100x times over. I miss it SOOOOOO much. I've been test driving all different cars and have been in 3 different rentals since and nothing compares to it. Everything about it was great (minus a few electrical issues like windows rolling up or down or random lights coming on and off but that's a GM thing and those issues usually fixed themselves over a course of 24 hours or so). Plus, for all the fellow lead footers out there, the acceleration is great but it also maintains speed very well.

Review

This is an extreamly great car for school, work, and just to either deck out or just drive. Its verry fun to drive and the fuel economy is the best ever compared to my old 85 s-10, it had a v6 2.8l but it was a mess, this car saved me and its awesome.

Review

We have had this car for a few weeks now.
I do a lot of driving, and it has been a very good car in the few weeks we have owned it.
I activated the XM radio in it, it tends to loose a signal when going under bridges or parked next to 3 story buildings.
the engine is very responsive and the steering is tight.
I bought it with about 91000 miles, so it has already been well broken in.
The interior is roomy, and the back seat is very roomy for the size of car it is.
One option that I wish it had was being able to pull down the 40/60 seats from the interior of the car and not just from the trunk.


Best Features

The monsoon sound system, and power steering


Worst Features

Bluetooth connectivity
