Greetings from Southern California! Bought my G6 hours ago!!!

Hey everyone,

To start off - the name is Jordan. I recently owned a 96' Eclipse RS in great condition... But driving home last week (on wednesday - if memory serves correctly) with my Eclipse I was hit my another driver pulling out of a parking lot who didn't see me (I was going ~45ish mph) and totally destroyed my passenger's fender and crushed my hood back. The damage to my Eclipse was more than the value of my car AND the other driver was uninsured...So I pretty much got screwed.

So here I am, 19 years old - I'm a full time college student (currently on summer vacation) and working full time...I needed a ride. So my mom knows someone (actually one her employee's) whose father works for the GM / Buick / Pontiac dealership who was willing to try and help get a used car...He was trying to get me to qualify and purchase a used 2008 cobalt

I immediately went online and looked up there inventory and saw that they had a 2009 Pontiac G6 GT Sedan in stock (Actually, it didn't even make it to the lot with the sticker price on it, they had JUST aquired it from one of those "GM Pool of cars" - and so nobody (who was browsing their selection on "foot") knew it was for sale - I was the lucky first.

I found out about it Saturday - however it was still in the process of being detailed and yadda yadda, and the manager couldn't find the keys to the car but wanted me to come down to buy the car anyways... I (as well as my parents seeing how i'm a "first time buyer") agreed we wouldn't even look at it until we both knew I was qualified for it AND I could test drive it... Theres no sense getting your hopes up for something you can't have/afford/enjoy.

So...to make a really long story medium-ish (lol) today they had the keys, and I had to wait until I was off work and my mom was off work to get down there. I had to wait from saturday till 9PM (tonight/yesterday?) to actually see, touch and "feel" the car.

To sum things up, I got myself a 2009 G6 GT metallic blueishy sedan. I'm in love with it....

I'm happy to be a part of the community.

Edit: Oh and the one thing I'm most proud of (besides being the owner of a new sexy-beast) is that I qualified and was able to buy it all on my own.

I must admit - its painful (for me) going from a 5-speed manual to an auto. I loved my Eclipse because of the control I had over it with my gear box and compact size. However, it rides nothing like the G6. The Eclipse was a much firmer ride... The G6 drives smooth like butter, handles good, accelerates quickly enough - when I go to M-mode, and all around is a much nicer car (as much as it pains me to say that. haha) Sorry to all of my 2G DSMer brethren!

Now I have already compiled a list of things I want to do to this car...But I'm going to wait at least a couple years to see if I really want it - as for now, I'm worried about my warranty and any possible mechanical problems that the internet seems to be filled with... So I don't want to touch anything (other than cosmetics perhaps. )

And thanks Jascot! I thought the Cobalt was a joke, I would have waited a week and purchased another eclipse if my only choice was a Cobalt. lol.

Depending on the lighting (which in this case sorta sucked as the sun was going down) my car looks either blue/silver or goldish. In most of these pictures it really just looks like a plain jane silver.

BUT HERE WE ARE! PICTURES










The last one is with me and my car.
