From the surveys I have seen, the Solara (Camry) has an edge in reliability over the G6. In addition, on test drive, the retractable hardtop stalled the first time we attempted to close it. We had to open it again and retry closing it. full 2007 Pontiac G6 review

4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The OE tires are starting to get loud with very low mileage on them. As mentioned above, the rattling noise from the loose screws makes for a very long drive. It took five visits before GM corrected the problems. full 2006 Pontiac G6 review
