"I have had my G8 GT for a little over a month. I love this car. I finally found a vehicle that would fit me (6'2" and rotund) that has incredible power. I had been lusting after the new Camaro and realized that you get nearly the same power and more utility.
The winter handling takes some getting used to. I have had no problems except for the occasional back slide on initial acceleration. Simple to correct and worth it for the fun on the dry days."
Pros: "Excellent power, fun to drive-very responsive!!!"
Cons: "No XM/Sirius capability."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Outstanding, in comfort, drivability and reliability. The G8 has a great look with it's widetrack, aggressive stance. I love approaching it as it is parked on a lot...it just looks as bad as it is!! It was a major mistake by GM in deleting Pontiac from their line up."
"I've owned many cars but this is by far the best. With 360+ HP and 25mpg on the highway, this GT is a blast to drive. I had it for over a year now with no issues other than a bushing recall which was fixed quickly. The front end with the wide overhanging fenders looks menacing. I call it a 4 door GTO!"
"I LOVE this car; just purchased it 3 weeks ago and I can not stop smiling!!
I traded my 2005 Bonneville GPX, and have not missed the car. The G8 is agile, quick, fun to drive and has a killer sound system!!!
The gadgets are slick and easy to use (be sure to read the manual). By the way there are a few new interesting things to play with like the CD system.
One bad thing no "XM" radio available, but handy "AUX" plug for great sound from an after market system.
You have to drive this car "VERY, VERY" fast!
Can't wait to see what the G8 GXP will be like.
Congratulations Pontiac, I was mad when you discontinued the Bonneville, but the G8 is a nice replacement!!!"
