The American Dream from Australia
By i12cunekid on


2009 Pontiac G8 GT 4dr Sedan (6.0L 8cyl 6A)


I simply love this car. 6 liters of V8 muscle with a 6 speed and rear wheel drive. Interior is nicely laid out with more room inside than anything else in or near it's class. Fun to drive and gets lots of compliments. Sat radio, power everything, heated seats, DOD/AFM, factory 19" wheels, Leather seats, dual climate control,... Looks like a 5 series BMW on the outside and has more room on the inside. Yes the BMW has a nicer interior but it's also twice the price. I've had the car 3 years and love to drive it. If you can get your hands on one, get it while you can. Only imported for 2 years by Pontiac from GM's Australian partner Holden. Only thing Pontiac about it is the name badges. :)

Best Features

GM LS 6 liter V8 with 6 speed and rear wheel drive. More room inside than just about any other sedan. 6'3" friend comfortable sits in the back with no issues and still has knee room. Great styling. Window switches in the middle and not on the door. Easy to mod if you like power.

Worst Features

Strut mount bushings collapse within 10k miles. Not a big deal, but if you drive spiritedly, you will want to replace them with aftermarket.
