Yeah I believe someone from moscow or another city mentioned the gas grade is lower, not sure if the octane is lower or if its leaded or what....

going to sh*t

they axed the bonneville.

they axed the grand prix

they axed the grand am for a G6

so we are supposed to have a high horsepower G8 coming soon, pontiac is not doing to well, and GM is sorta not doing very welll, they are overproducing gas guzzling SUVs and crossover SUV/Minivans.

Everyone in the states love Japanese cars....To their right, yes they are pretty good cars. In my opinion, Pontiac had perhaps the best fullsize car to date. For it'* size, weight and engine, the mileage is very acceptable....It'* not uncommon to get 35 mpg highway with these cars if driven nicely. I have a 95 Supercharged Bonneville with 220,000 miles on it, and I can still grab 30-35 MPG.....With the A/C on, I can get about 26-30 miles per gallon.

Also the reliability of these cars is pretty amazing.....The transmissions and some lil crap are the only questionable parts.
