2006 Pontiac G6 Reviews

I have my pontiac for five yrs. it has 130,000 miles on it.I have not had any issues with it. and now everything is starting to act up. my power steering has been locking up. and my drivers side window will not let down anymore. but i'm going to fix her up and keep on moving because i love my car.

I love my G6! It has great accelleration and power, more than expected for a 4 cyl. Sporty look and lots of room , interior and trunk. It's bigger than it looks. Handles well in snow with the front wheel drive and with front cables, is unstoppable in icey conditions. Having some confusion with check engine light right now, differing codes than will clear up. Don't know yet what's up with that. One of the best cars I've ever had, very satisfied.

I have a G6 GTP Hardtop Convertible. Love the fact that the back seat is comfy and big. Would love it better if it had been a 4 door as I didn't realize I would be a grammy and have to load and unload a baby seat in the back seat.
"Top not secure" error message started out intermittent, but now is constant. I have been able to put the top up and down all summer so I let it go, but now would like to have use of the trunk, which does not open, either with fob or trunk lid button on door. I think the rear window defroster does not work either.
I also have an oil leak that the dealership told me could be any one of 4 areas and gave me an estimate of $1300 for all four leaks. I guess it would be less if they are lucky and get it right the first time... The post about the redesigned gasket is interesting. I may start there.
I have 82,000 miles on this car. It is red and must have a target painted on it because it was rear-ended about 4 months after purchase (new). Within the first 5 months I had the car, it spent 12 weeks in the shop, 6 weeks to fix a problem with the convertible top that they had to wait for parts to be made available, and another 6 weeks in the body shop after the rear-end accident due to having to order 5 trunk lids before they got one that wasn't so damaged that they couldn't use it. I had more miles on a rental car than the new car...

I love my car, the GTP upgrade is well worth it. Fully loaded, the sound system is great. I have a two year old son, theres plenty of room for him without kicking the seat. It handles great in all weather. The only problem i have had is the replacement of tires are pretty expensive, but thats all i have bad to say.

Great car. Fast, sporty, awesome handling & smooth acceleration. I own a GTP model, fully loaded and worth it. Only issue: After a couple of years had a problem with the passenger side headlight having a crack which allowed rain/moisture to get in it so had to replace that.
