GM is buying my car back!!!

After a long drawn out battle over the steering lock up. GM has made an offer to buy back my G6 for what I paid for it. Which was $26,790.00. So now I have to go to the dealership and pick out another GM product. Any ideas?? Should I get a GTP?

WOW....Im impressed that GM actually did something like that. Good going. Do they give you the difference if you get something cheaper??

If you can't beat them...arrange to have them beaten...

Congratulations!! May as well go for something better, with the red tag sale and all. I'd personally go for a Grand Prix, Bonneville, or a GTP G6. Just my thoughts, but go with your instinct! Good Luck!!

Here's what you need to think about:

Was the G6 big enough for you? Did you enjoy the car enough when it wasn't giving you problems?

Also, are you willing to sacrifice gas milage, as the GTP doesn't get as good of gas, no matter how you look at it.

I know you had a rough time with GM, but I think you should give them another shot.

do you concur?

i concur!

all excellent things to consider! if you can live with the gas mileage, and can afford it, get the GTP!!!

It seems the 06 is a little cleaner than the 05 models.

I honestly think with cars its hit or miss; you get a lemon or you don't.

gratz, yeah as mentioned in previous posts the big thing is how did the G6 fit in with your life and what you wanted it for. I had traded an 04 GP GTP for my G6, I really liked that car but mileage was bad, had to use premium because of the supercharger and the payments were killing me. When I traded I had to get an extra year on financing but I made the right choice because of all the costs involved. Coincidentally the G6 sedan has about as much interior room as the GP, the overall length of the Prix is where they don't compare.

Honestly after looking at the G6 coupes I wish I had waited a couple more months and tried to trade on one of them, but the Prix was killing me so I HAD to trade when I did. I've been a Pontiac guy most of my life but I kind of like the look of the Chevrolet HHR as well-- but nah, gimme another Pontiac. Don't be afraid if you like the brand, I also had owned an 85 Fiero but I came back to Pontiac again once I decided to trade that lemon. ( it would just die for no reason while driving down the interstate ) they never did figure that one out either.

Guess you didn't need a cliff after all. I'm glad to see GM taking care of their customers. I'd get a G6 GTP, GTO, or Solstice - all with a manual transmission!

COOL BEANS, CARISSA!!!!

if i were in YOUR shoes, first i would get bigger shoes (i doubt you and i wear the same size and my feet would be hurting from all the walking of lots looking for 'Mr Goodcar'!!!) and second i would pick me out the sweetest 2006 GTP 6sp i could find. i prefer the sedan myself because i'm an old fart and unfortunately practical. but if the COUPE can fill your needs, then go for it!!!

a word of advice; stay away from the Panaramic Roof.......you've seen the posts on these, right? just stick with the regular power moonroof. i have had NO POBLEMS with mine (knock on wood!!) and i would strongly recommend the heated leather seats. primo!!! i just ran this exact same senario on my local dealers 'build me a pontiac' thing and with the 'red tag' discount it came in UNDER $24K!!! thats $4k LESS than my '05 GT listed for!

again, just my thought on what "I" would do.......

kevin

p.s. great job, carissa!!!! i;m very proud of you and the way you handled a really BAD situation. hey, the little guy CAN win!

Good Job! I know personally I don't have time nor the patience to deal with them as much as you have. I usually skip the BS and go for the throat. Unfornately that doesn't work in the consumers favor EVER.
