Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The look of the interior
Cons: Could only get it up to 260 horses
Advice: Get the at least the GTAmazing styling. The GT has great handling and acceleration. It comes with 224 horsepower but I got it up to about 260. Definitely a better buy than the toyota.
Pros: 4 seat hard top convertible
Cons: Trim items a bit flimsy.
Advice: buy sunglasses.Caveat: Just picked my convertible up over the weekend, so not a lot of experience to go on. But, I put 350 miles on it over a gorgeous weekend, top down the whole time. What blast. It has room for kids in the back and boy did they love it. A little tight, but we have another, bigger, car for longer family trips. But getting dropped off at school in the convertible made my son's day. The hard top makes it QUIET with the top up. Ride is smooth, good power. There aren't many 4 seater hard top convertibles on the market -- and none in this price range. Yeah, there's a little cheapness to some of the fit and finish itmes -- but that's what makes this so much more affordable than the C70 or the EOS. Highly recommended.
Pros: 6 CD-Changer
Cons: Haven't had the car for a year and had regular brake problems; power window problems, new starter, and new steering wheel/column.
Advice: Be sure to get regular service checks; pay attention to car's performance (warnings); and buy extended warranty.Absolutely loved everything about it! Especially just looking at it for the first time!
Cons: The auto lights that come on during he day
Advice: get the alloy wheels instead of the granny wheelcoversMake sure you get the aluminum wheels instead of the basic 'granny wheel covers'. I bought silver a 2006 Pontiac G6 four months ago. I was surprised by it's wonderful peformance; the peppy 6 cyl engine, the steering and handling. The monsoon stereo is entertainment in itself. I love to play CDs while I'm in the vehicle. Good buy if you want style and full power options, but dont have a lot of money. This car is the best kept secret. Pontiac could have sold a lot more of these cars, if they had make the alloy aluminum wheels standard. Many G6's on the street, have the basic wheel covers which give the car a granny look. That's why I never noticed the G6 until I saw mine with the fancy aluminum alloy wheels.
Pros: The sun roof
Cons: The whole Front end problems.
Advice: Do Not WASTE UR MONEY!!!Do NOT BUY ONE OF THESE!!! I have had problems since I bought it. I've had the car 1 year and I have had the Rack and Pinion replaced 2 TIMES, the rotaters 2 times, 2 sets of brakes, and 2 sets of tires. I'm not joking. GM will not help me with the car now. It was under warranty when it all started and they act like it is all my fault this continues to happen!! Everyone knows that it takes a lot to brake the rack on the car. All GM offered was they would tow my car if it needed that. I have that on my car insurance. Do NOT BUY THIS CAR. I Love mine but to many problems!!
Pros: the whole veical package. The fit and finish. My friend just bought a 07 Camry and the interior is not put together as well as my G6. A lot of gaps in the Camry.
Cons: I have the 4 panel sun roof that closed gives off lots of wind noise during higher speeds, but when you open that baby up it is worth it.
Advice: test drive one for yourself. I have had mine for over a year and aside from a minor steering gear problem it has held together quite nicelysmooth and handles nice. Has ample power with a 200 hp engine . Fuel economy is good, I get an average of 25 mpg. I drive about half and half city and express way.
Pros: the info and audio system
Cons: no ashtray
Advice: you will love this vehicleit handles well and is comfortable and is worth the money
