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 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."
"Purchased the car for the performance to value ratio. Car is fast, handles well and has lots of room. Been driving it for over 4 years and 113k miles, mostly all highway so easy miles. No repairs needed to date. Just routine maintenance. Gotta be proud of the general for this one,,, and the Aussies."
"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!!!"
"Don't see a lot on the road. Wish pontiac could of stayed around just to make this one car. I would buy a new one every 4 to 5 years. It's a shame I won't get the chance. Car has a stand out look and drives great. For a big sedan it corners like a little car. Turn the traction off and have some fun. Stays balanced and easy to handle even in a drift."
