"The Pontiac G8 GT is a great car for someone who needs room for friends or family and comes with a pep in it's step. Want to pass a car? Go ahead because you won't have to put much foot into the gas pedal. Want your seat a little warmer? Sure, there are 3 levels for that. Don't want an every day "mom car", get a G8 GT!"

"This is the first Pontiac I've owned since my Pontiac 6000 disaster back in 86. I swore never to touch another pontiac since then. But this one I had to check out. I've owned the 09 GT sedan since new. Since then, it's been a blast to drive. I got it after Pontiac was dissolved but still a bit pricey for the quality of car you get. But when you consider the performance, all of the sudden it doesn't seem too expensive. You can't come close to the amount of room and options you get for the price with the amount of motor that comes along with it. The down sides: right out of the box, the hazard/flasher button was broken and top front strut mounts collapsed. I guess known issues. The transmission has a small flare between 2-3 that comes and goes but never worsened. Various leather trim/plastic pieces wanted to separate at 20,000 miles. I'm up to 36,000 miles so far and nothing else has gone wrong. Everything considered, with my Vararam intake and Corsa cat back, this thing is the most fun I've had with a car. I don't really put too many miles on it but I just can't seem to sell the car. The styling is timeless (IMHO) and performance more than adequate. And when I see how they bastardized the Commodore platform styling with the Chevy SS, it convinces me to keep it for a while longer."

2009 G8 sitting out showing off :-)

"Love driving it. Handles so well. Very fast too :-) Great looks..amazing hot. However, the seats aren't real comfortable for a tall guy and has many blind spots. Interior not very convenient to get to the controls, etc."

"The only problkem with this car is the front seat trim has broken three times. I have had trouble locating parts too but I only use GM factory parts. Great gas mileage, roomy, large trunk and great on the road. Gas mileage 20 around town and 27 on the road.I wish Pontiac was still around because I would definitely buy another one."
