About Pontiac G8

Attempting to bolster its image – and drive a whole new generation of performance-oriented buyers back into its dealerships – GM's self-proclaimed excitement division last year added the G8 sport sedan to its U.S. lineup. Built in Australia and based on the popular Holden Commodore model, Pontiac's new flagship is its first rear-wheel-drive sedan in several years and is available in three trim levels, a V6-powered standard model, the sporty V8-powered GT and, for 2009, an all new high-performance GXP trim with a proper six-speed manual transmission. The G8's aggressive appearance, impressive array of features, superb handling dynamics and attractive pricing should also help it appeal to those who might want something with the performance and feel of a European sport sedan but at a lower price.

"Having owned about 40 new & 10 used cars from acura to vw,including several high performance cars(boss 302)(280Z turbo),&several mid range luxury cars Acura legend,cad seville.The pontiac is probably the best compromise in my opinion, it seems to do everything extremly well.mixed driving over 1000 miles yields 19.7 mpg.Not perfect,but no mechanicle issues, I agree with other reviews passanger seat travel should match drivers,& power seat recliners would have been nice.We purchased a oem 19 in rim & tire, that fits in spare tire recepticle.power,handling & braking are exceptional."

"This car is a collectors car, I debadged my car and have so many curious onlookers, i have seen people taking pictures of my car.It looks very agressive, and all for 38Grand. with 0%APR.It has the same engine as a corvette. Those who think that american cars are just muscle cars will have to drive this car and Im sure they will change their opinion. It handles great.The platform is awesome and built for very high upgrades,Truly an enthusiast best car.This is the best buy of my life so far."

"Great car particularly for the money. Bought it in December, 2009 when Pontiac was blowing them out with $6K in rebates. Made it the buy of a lifetime. Great handling, sporty feel fast etc. Love this car."
