Hello!

Greetings all - just bought a G6, and subsequently came across these forums. Looks like a nice board!!

I purchased the 2008, 4-cylinder, base model w/cruise. It has 31,000 on it - it was a Hertz rental and then sold at auction. Got a pretty good price.

The dealership I bought from is very reputable - the car has been through their certified reconditioning program, and I've still got about 5,000 miles left on the warranty. It drives great, I'm quite happy at this point.

My main question, however, is this - are there any trends to look forward to after 30,000 miles, problem-wise? Its my first Pontiac, so I'm not quite sure what is out there waiting.

Great forum - Thanks!!

Welcome....yes...you will need tires and new rotors/pads before long...
after that it should be smooth sailing for another 50k miles at least.

Oh the horror! THE HORROR!


Actually the last 6 cars I've owned have been 5 Pontiacs and 1 Chevy and they've all been very good reliability-wise (well, the 89 Grand Prix had a few, ahem, issues along the way, but still...)

09 White Diamond Tricoat 'vert here!

Hello and welcome! After 60k just brakes and tires! You might not have these problems nearly as much because of th 4 banger but depends on driving habits! Have fun with it!
