Default Opinions on the G6 please.

We got that new flyer in the mail showcasing Pontiac'* latest offerings and she was taken by the G6. It was shown as having 240hp but that may be on a higher priced model. I dont like it though, front looks like it came from a Honda and back came from a Ford Taurus. The concept G6 was sooo much better and I would have jumped on it if that styling carried over the the production versions.

So whats your take? Im trying to convince my mom that for a fraction of the cost we can get a used Bonne which is even more powerful, as luxurious as our Seville, comftable, roomy, and of high quality as even she can attest with our near-200,000 mile SE. Plus you cant be a fan of the Bonneville without owning two anyway. :P

My mom wants to get a new car, but does not appreciate the value of the Bonneville, yet if she says I can find a good one at a good price she will take it. Hence this.

Shes probably afraid of used cars. Lots of parents are unless they are car nuts.

I like the G6

G6 coupe=sex
G6 sedan=also very nice

Plus the G6 apparently sets a new marque for GM quality.

I'm liking the G6 so far. Personally I like the sedan better, I like standing out from the street sport coupe group but that'* just me.
As die hard loyal I am to the 3800, I'm liking what I read about the 3900 as far as performance specs go. Especially mated with a 6 speed and super charger option.
Car could use a little more personality in it'* overall looks though

Yep, that'll be disgusting.

I like it. The design is also beginning to stray from the cookie-cutter mold we've all grown to love/hate.

Hope they keep it up.
