So i am wanting to buy a G6 but havent been hearing great things about it from this site as far as the sunroof and such.If i do get a G6 I am definetely getting a p.sunroof.I just like how they look and theyre much bigger than the regular sunroofs...Id like to hear from some of you who have them and tell me what u think of them.Also im going to get the 8 speaker moonsound system.Now tell me is this a good system.I like my music loud and bumping!!!

Ive narrowed it down between two brands of cars..It either going to be the G6 sedan or the ford fusion.I am leaning towards the g6 and i would like to hear from some of you and tell me if you enjoy your car.

Overall, the Fusion will be a better car than the G6 in terms of quality, engineering, and technology. It has more horsepower, a multi-valve engine, 6 speed auto transmission and a host of other more advanced features. Styling wise the G6 is a lot more sporty.
Both cars are built on very solid platforms.

Ive managed to put about 12,000 miles on mine in the past 6 months and have not had any problems that had me running to the dealer. I enjoy driving the car but there is one minor annoyance such as everything rattles inside.
Other problems ive had are, front roters are warped, transmission has a slow leak, and the paint on the car is very soft. I had a stone hit on the roof and it cut right through the paint, primer and through the galvanized steel and its starting to rust already. Other than that its a good daily driver. Ive been averaging 28mpg in the winter and 31-32 in the summer.

I had a 2005 G6 GT. It was a beautiful car, but not what I had expected. The paint was thinning in a spot, and I had some other problems as well. As for the Monsoon system, I had it. It sounded good, but the speakers with the system seemed to have a hard time carrying it. I busted 2 of the speakers and never listened to it with the volume more than half way up. COuld have just been mine, but you never know. No major problems, just a lot of aggravating little problems that took me to the dealership quite a bit. Inside does rattle, especially the dash cracking noises, but you get used to that.

Good Luck in whatever you choose!! :)

I bought my 2005 G6-GT new... still lovin' it!!

I know nothing about the Ford Fusion (other than it's a Ford). As for my G6-GT, as I said, I love it!! I bought mine with ALL the bells & whistles on it & I have the panoramic sunroof & wouldn't trade it for nothin!!! I have experienced none of the problems the other members have mentioned - thankfully! I now have put 4177 miles on The Oracle since March 21, 2005. I keep her clean & still receive the double-take looks. I would advise that you do a comparison online by building one & doing an onlne comparison that most sites allow you to do & proceed from there. That's my 2 cents. :D

I've had the Trail Blazer for little over a week. I went from an Xterra to the G6 and really missed the bigger vehicle, so we traded for the Trail Blazer. So far I'm loving it!! I still hand out here though b/c I couldn't leave my friends!! :)

Just a perk for the Fusion, it's built off the same platform I believe as the Mazda6, which has been hailed as far superior to the G6, apparently.

Personally, the itnerior of the Fusion is kinda blah, like most ford vehicles. The G6 is a good car, overall, depending on what you get.
