Had I not joined this forum I may have never heard these troubles you and others are having. I owned 2 Pontiacs before the G6 and have had great expereinces with them both. Now, with the G6 I am still in favor of Pontiacs cars. Maybe I'm just getting lucky. (?) Sure, there are some small issues that pop up but nothing a little TLC won't cure.
With that being said you need to know I also own a Mazda and it has its share of "little issues" too.
Good Luck!

I have a 07 with a 4 cyl and I get right around 28-33 mpg. I drive 70+ miles a day with some city driving thrown in. I have 21,000 miles on the car. I backed off the gas from 70 mph on the highway to 60 and the gas mileage jumped from 23.5- 25 mpg to that 30 mpg. It takes an extra 5 mins. to get to work in the morning but its worth it for the extra 6-7 mpg. I was filling up about every 4 days. If I do just highway miles I can get 33 mpg. would have never believed it made that big a difference.

I calculate the gas mileage myself because I find the computer to be a little off. I have an 06 GTP (3.9L V6) and the best i've got so far was 24MPG mainly hwy driving on a 240 mi trip. On average I only get about 19MPG with city and hwy combined.. not too impressed.

I drive a 2007 G6 4cy Sedan with 37,000k

I do mostly local driving in upstate NY and average between 21-23 mpg. Took it on a few highway trips to Pittsburgh and Connecticut this summer and got around 29-30.

30.2 mostly highway, a little stop and go on the daily commute this week. I drive 55-70 depending on the flow of traffic. On my road trips to PA I usually average about 32.7.

I have an '05 G6 GT with approximately 28,000 miles on it (bought it used a few months ago with only 19,000 on it).

I have an '08 4-cyl, with about 8500 miles on it. I get about 21-21.5 mph with mostly city driving. On the highway, normally it's 28-32. I always thought the city mileage was a little low for a 4-cyl.

I think that is due to the weight of the car. Personally I feel a 6 cyl should be standard. My 6 with an LX9 gets better gas milage than the 2.4 so why
would you want to put a 4 in a G6. I dont understand it.
