Why the 2009 Pontiac G8?

Powertrain performance

The LS3/TR6060 combo always have more than enough power. Always.

Handling

The steering is an absolute dream. Lots of feel but without beating you up. Handling is very predictable and free of drama. It's hard to get it to break loose, for something so powerful.

Front seat support & comfort

Fantastic seats.

Exterior styling

Has just the right blend of attitude and subtlety. People notice it but it doesn't stick out in a bad way.

Safety & braking

Braking with the front Brembos is outstanding. Super short stops, no fade ever.

Why Not the 2009 Pontiac G8?

Materials & workmanship

Interior materials are awful and the styling is uninspired.

Fuel economy

Average fuel economy 15 mpg in mixed driving.

Audio & nav systems

Audio system was terrible from the factory, and nav not available. Fixed both those issues in the aftermarket.
