Default Pontiac G6 opinions

I went out today, and looked at one..i must say, its a nice looking car, the insturment cluster is cool and its affordable
Loaded, black leather, all the goodies....i want to take one for a test drive. The Alero is has pushed alot of buttons with me latley as it practically lives in the shop now.
Transmission is acting up once again, tensioner bearing is bad..squeals when cold, and it clunks when making a right turn..not to mention the cruddy interior trim thats bubbling everywere. Its going in on Tuesday to get fixed ONCE again.
I may consider a G6 come this summer time..put a nice downpayment on it, then finance the rest over 6 years..
Thoughts or ideas anyone?


Also..the 3500 under the hood is the push rod engine not the short star right..

Yes, the 3500 is a pushrod. 200HP too. I had the privilage of driving my friends G6. It was a very nice riding car, and had some good pickup.

His was fully loaded. Leather heated seats, auto-stick, cd changer, on-star, premium audio, sunroof (not the one that folds up in pieces), chrome accents, NICE INTERIOR, remote start.

His was the GT model BTW.

I highly reccommend it. Nice car!

Unfortunately I have not heard much of anything about these cars. I was hoping to see someones opinion on here. I always thought that they had looked cool enough. Buy one, I want to hear all about them

The roof that flips up in sections is ugly IMO
What i want is
Leather
Auto Stick
Aluminum wheels
Sunroof

Things that arent important to me are OnStar, 6 disk changer, and a few other little nickle and dime options...i need to keep it right at 30G CDN.
I want one!!!

Sex on wheels. Interesting to see how it kills pontiacs sales of other cars

It'* DAMN good, interior is tied with GTO as pontiacs best.

I would like the 6 speed 3.9L coming out in a year..
