"I got this as a birthday gift from my husband with the trade in for my old Van on the cash for clunkers program. I had spent days test driving other cars around the same offering price but I just didn't find them to have the style and handling as the G3. The deal we go on the G3 was $7000 out the door. I have many people who want to see the car because it was so different, and I think I got the only one that was shipped to the dealer.
Gas mileage is 35 Hwy, And I love the ON STAR, I feel like it is my personal lifeline when I am on the road.
You have to get this car, you will love it too!"
Cons: "small wheels seem to make for rapid tire wear"

"Turns on a dime;parks anywhere. Not a speed demon but great car for both long trips&city driving.Size is deceptive from outside - fullsize inside, comfortable seats,excellent gas mileage, enuf speed response when needed for passing, good visibility.Cargo space with seats all the way down flat holds an enormous amount. Versatile - has worn well, no major mechanical problems at all. Small tire wheelbase (14") tends to wear out tires more quickly - my only complaint."
"I have been driving this car for a little over 600 miles now and love it! I calculated my mileage on the first tank of gas (390 miles, 11.2 gallons of gas) for 34.8 miles per gallon. That's with the five speed. Its cool having such a rare car too, I've only seenone other G3 since I bought it. I like having the peace of mind with On-Star knowing I can get help any time I need it. The XM radio is great in areas where the radio reception isn't good. The keyless entry is nice to have with the remote built in to the key. If you can't tell already the car is great and I would reccommend it to my friends and familty."
