Hi all I'm new to the forum. I've already found it helpful to answer some questions I have had about items to buy for my 2008 Dark Gray Metallic G6 V6 sedan I just bought. Has the sunroof and some of the trim upgrades. Up to just over 32k miles now. So far I'm impressed with the comfort of the vehicle and its handling. I'll take some pictures after I get it washed. It's covered in salt from the roads now.

Only downside I've seen so far is the lack of a compass. Why have a thermometer but no compass? Obviously it isn't essential, but it's nice to have.

I also have a question regarding the GM Certified Used car program. My car was certified used (though I didn't pay for any extra warranty or any official fee for that purpose as far as I know). Does that provide an additional 1 year/12,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty from the date of purchase? I know it still has the original 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty as it was purchased by the prior owner in 2007 and it currently has roughly 32,000 miles.

FYI, if you have any chips in your windshield your insurance company will likely waive your deductible if you have comprehensive coverage and the chips are less than 6 inches. They do this to save money if the cracks spread.

Welcome and congrats on the G6. You may need to ask the dealer you bought the car from about the warrenty though.

Us michiganders have lost our faith in the lions... like 3 years ago.

But when you have teams like the Redwings, Pistons, and Tigers, its okay to have one absolute failing team.

Three years ago? I haven't been watching them for at least double that.
