Why the 2009 Pontiac G8?

Exterior styling

Muscular and sexy, especially from the front three quarters view. Graceful arching roofline. Optional sport rims/tires fill in wheel wells quite nicely. Looks killer in Panther Black Metallic.

Interior styling

High quality materials, especially when you consider the garbage GM has put out in the past. Control layouts are completely different from anything GM has put out before; definitely a plus. Absolutely rock solid with no squeaks or rattles after 3300 miles

Powertrain performance

Smooth and fast power delivery. GOBS of torque from off the line.


Extremely stable and confidence inspiring. Emergency lane changes at above legal speeds done without drama. Car goes where you point it with minimal body roll.

Ride smoothness

Car seems smoothest at highway speeds. Expansion joints heard as a distant thumping sound. Minimal wind noise at speed. High speed stability is awe inspiring. Rides like a luxury car costing twice as much.
