There isn't one
Yeah, I'm away that they are huge...just thinking if there wasn't an access point on one and there was on another, it could be retrofitted...theoretically.e2helper said:Those things are huge - the G6 one isn't even the same as Malibu
no, no, its not just the cabin air filter. Its ALL of the little things. The things that make a good car a great car. The G6 is lacking with not having a cabin air filter, no auxilary audio input, has a crappy 4 spd auto, crappy looking key, dull gauge cluster lighting, not implementing the variable displacement feature the 3.9 was designed with. Its the little things that are holding this car back. Don't get me wrong, I still like it because I think its has very tasteful styling and good performance characteristics, but its not wowing me like it should. I guess I'm still up in the air on it...thunkele said:haha.. no cabin filter.. no purchase.. that's a funny reason.. but.. it's your money.. spend it as you please.
I'm pretty sure GMC Sierra's have them too. For a 2006 model to not have one is pretty pathetic in my opinion.Bob G said:Grand Prix has them

Do you ever find your dash covered in dust? It would probably take about a year for enough dust to build up in my car to be visible. And that includes driving on gravel rodes rather frequently. The filter makes a bid difference.GTPGuy82 said:cabin air filter? Lol. On my last car I changed the cabin air filter at 70,000 miles and noticed no difference whatsoever. Coming from a Ford, I'm happy with my transmission. In tapshift mode it really takes off the line and pushes you back. I have no problem reading the gauges at night...you sure you had the dimmer adjusted correctly?

If you're already having doubts, then by all means look at something else. They are great looking cars, but in my opinion there are too many little problems. I realize that there will be problems with most new model cars, but I've just had way too many (that have been fixed and since come back, plus some that have never been fixed). I know I should be happy that I have not had any major problems yet, but when I buy a car I don't expect to have it in the shop for anything other than oil changes and tire rotations. Just my thoughts!
So if the dust builds up you just clean it lol. Of course my dash had a lot of dust on it, it was custom painted and the car was 6 years old. You say you've only driven Hondas, my first car was a pontiac, then a ford, now I have another pontiac. And my parents both drive Cavaliers, and we've had no problems at all with and are happy with GM. Little things that have been mentioned in this thread should be expected, I mean, it's not like the car is a BMW or Mercedes. You can't even compare it to a Honda because even the top of the line Accord goes for close to $30,000 no? My top of the line G6 was $24K and I think it's worth it for what I got.jp375 said:Do you ever find your dash covered in dust?

Perhaps your perception is different because you have only driven crappy cars. I've driven only Honda's, and I have to say they set a high bar for competitors to reach. Everything has been pretty much flawless. Of course any car is going to be good compared to a Ford. I don't want to make this a big foreign domestic debate debacle, but I just wish GM would step it up a notch as to not be lacking in any areas. The 4 speed may perform well, but it hurts your gas milage. The guages.....have you ever been in a car with gorgeous electroluminescent gauges? They are worlds better. There is nothing wrong with the G6, but it doesn't quite compare well to competitors.
