Cons: Rear lights designI have enjoyed driving this vehicle since the first day of my purchase.
Pros: sporty look
Cons: all the problems
Advice: be leary.............I bought the 05 pontiac g6 brand new..... at 16,000 miles had to get a NEW TRANSMISSION. Because i bought this vehicle brand new, i babied it. took great care of it. At about 20,000 a thumping started in the steering column, had this fixed 5 times, and it still wasn't fixed. Many problems with rotors... Stereo acted up from time to time. Big Nightmare, I just traded it in last week for a Jeep wrangler Unlimited.....
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: Information System Built In With The Radio In The Dashboard
Cons: This does not apply because I like everything about my Pontiac G6.
Advice: Great economy carThe Pontiac G6 V6 is a smooth ride. Give it acceleration and it really surpises you on how fast it can go. The brakes are excellent, which is the reason why I have not been in an accident. This is a very low maintenance car and is a very easy upkeep. The black interior is the best due to no one can see the stains on it if there's any. The Pontiac G6 is also very spacious: a lot of leg room and the trunk is huge. The best part of the experience of owning this car is the reasonable price and not to mention it's good on gas mileage and even better for highway miles.
Pros: The look and feel of the car..(Absolutely Great!)
Cons: The cupholders are a little awkward but I can live with that.
Advice: if you are looking at the sedan drive the GT and the V6 as I did and thhe V6 with all the extra options is a better deal than the GT. My dealer had base GT sedan starting at 23,000 and the V6 I have has more options, V6 and was less expensiveI recently purchased a 2006 G6 V6 (Loaded) with all the extras. I have no complaints with the vehicle. The test drive was great and the car has a very smooth and powerful V6. I was amazed at how solid the car is and that it doesnt feel flimsy. My G6 is Black/Black with upgraded stock 17's and has the panoramic roof, this is an extra cool feature but it does cut head room down. With all the other extra features like the remote start, spoiler great stero with the in dash cd changer, I am very happy with the car and like all of the extra room that it has. I will recommend the G6 as a great alternative to those other cars out there.
Pros: Quality, Durability, 4 Speed Transmission, Steering
Cons: Having to explain what is clearly a great choice..
Advice: Buy it, tell Japanese Biased Owners/Reviewers to go to A very full Honda Repair Shop!I feel the awards the car has won sum up my experience: Consumer Reports says the acceleration is 'Excellent'. J.D. Powers & Associates gave the G6 the award as most appealing mid size car for content, layout and design. Strategic Vision gave the G6 the award for best ownership experience.. It's wheelbase is 4 inches longer than accord and Boy can you notice a driving difference. Items like On-Star Monsoon XM6indash Cd with Auto Volume Remote Start Adjustable Pedals 4 Panel Panoramic Sunroof..Not what you find on other models.. The plant it is built in is rated at the 4th best in North America..!!
