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: MPG and performanceHandles great Power when you need it
Pros: how well it drives.
Advice: I am sure which ever car you pick will be good but i strongly suggest a pontiacWhen i seen it i knew it was the perfect car. So affordable, but not cheap looking. Rides like a dream, even looks like one. Everyone that see's my car loves it!!! I would recommend this car to anyone. The only problem i have with it is that it only gets 22 mile to a gallon. But thanks pontiac for another great car!!!!!!
Pros: Body styling and chrome wheels.
Cons: I don't really care for look of the rear end on the GT coupe.
Advice: Take heed to the negative customer reviews. I've had a couple of problems with things I had previously read about prior to buying the car. I ignored them. I had the wet seat belts and a faulty dome light. The dealership fixed both problems. Happy now.I was basically sold on the test drive.
Pros: Engine performance and body style
Cons: They should eliminate the 4 cylinder engine and keep the 6 cylinder.
Advice: Buy the 6 cylinder and buy a 4 door. Get the sunroofI bought my silver 4 door 2006 G6 1 1/2 yrs ago. It had 14,000 miles on it. I'm still in love with it. The 6 cyl engine is super quiet, yet powerful & responsive. The stering is very agile. It has a sunroof that does not leak. A great sounding stereo system. All the power options. A great buy for the money. So far I have not had any problems under the hood. It's been the interior where I've had a few problems. The power drivers seat frame broke. They replaced it. The outside temperature gage on the radio is late on updating the temperature. It'll be 70 outside in the afternoon, and the temperature will read 58 from the morning. Then all of the sudden it will update. The dealer has ordered a whole new radio because the temp gage is built in. I hate that because I dont want to part with the wonderful stereo system that I already know. Other than these two interior problems I have had no mechanical problems with the car. The engine is great. Make sure you get a sunroof and rally wheels. Forget the 4 cylinder. Anybody buying this car should get a 6 cyl.
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.
