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


Purchased for $12,000 (Thanks, GM Card dollars!). At that price nothing really competes. I was able to get the dealer to add cruise, and for those that really want remote locks that can be added as well. Note the gas mileage will be less if the car has the 3.91 axle ratio, but will have more pep. So if you are shooting for 30 MPG be aware of the "optional" axle ratio issue. Easy to drive, but a little hard to get in and out of as doors are narrow top to bottom. I do 90% highway cruising, and this is quite and very smooth for its size. I understand wiper blades are expensive, so try and get covered under bumper-to- bumper warranty. Also, no key hole on passenger door, seems odd.

Best Features

Massive trunk, price, value leader has all the latest safety equipment, and car is easy on the eyes. Car is much larger inside, especially in rear seat room, than you would expect.

Worst Features

Hard plastic insides hard on elbows, and really bland in all black. I would trade some of the pep for slightly better gas mileage, I am getting 28.5 all highway and was hoping for more. Much better dollar value than Malibu, so I cannot complain too much about shortfalls.
