Anyone have any experience with this? I think it looks cool, however it is a Pontiac
I had a regular one as a rental and I was impressed
Yeah i am going to test drive one this week
pontiac nullifies any reason to buy it
that is what i was afraid of....so there immage is not much better then it was last time i was looking for a car
The only thing I didn't like was the lack of features of the Grand Prix
They have a better warranty than they use to.
what features are these?
New product != Old product
A lot of the gay electronics like trip meter, tire pressure and small shit like that. The trunk was smaller than the Grand Prix but the V6 made up for it.
was it powerful enough?
We all know that what other people think about it is the important thing!
needed more 5speed but the auto got up when I needed it to
wait......what? the 5speed needed more power?
No I had an auto and thought the 5speed would be more fun, but the auto got the job done nicely. I also had a 4door....
I have a G6 and like it. My '06 came with the 4-speed auto, so the gas mileage is dog shit. but I believe this has been solved with '07s getting the 5spd. Before I had the Grand Prix ('04 GT) and it had enough power for how I drive. Very roomy.
I own a G6 sedan, and I have no complaints. It is a 2007 model, and it has the 3.5L V6. It is pretty quick, but at 3300lbs and 225 HP, it isn't a rocket. It has plenty of room, and the trunk isn't that small either.
I have heard from some guys who hve the vert that it is fairly quite with the top up. Also long as you get the GT or the GTP model you will have fun. Those have the more powerful engines and the 6-speed manual (or automatic). Mine only has a 4-speed auto, and I wish daily that it was the six, or at least that it had 5 gears. The 4 speed just leaves lots of room for improvement.
As far quality, I have had no issues in my first 8500 miles. Though I do not expect any issues with this few miles either, so take this for what it is worth. Since it is a Pontiac, the resale isn't going to be that great. If you keep the car a few years and get it paid off though then that shouldn't be a worry for you.
I am not going to race it ot rice it out, i just wanted to make sure it was not sluggish.
because its got the fugly pontiac grill, the interior isn't that great, its got GM build quality , and I hate working on GM's. they make their cars a pain in the ass to work on and put shit in stupid places so to get to the part you need to get to, you have to take off 5 other things, each held on with bolts of different sizes, that take a 6 jointed arm to get to.
and yes old == new. alot of the parts are the same (alt, p/s pump, a/c compressor, etc), and you don't go from making turds to making the best cars in production in one vehicle life cycle.
well i guess my other question is, is there another convert that anyone would recomend for a similar price? (new)
I have mine with the i4 ecotec. I have the base base base model, we paid 14k out the door. For what we paid, it is an amazing car and has had no issues so far.
Most of them look like a chick car. and i am trying to stay away from that
Isn't the convert like 28k or something? Why not look at the mustang gt?
Definitely not sluggish as long as you go with the V6
