I am considering buying a 2008 G6. Any concerns in general about GM discountinuing the pontiac's in general in terms of parts avaialbility, ability to resell down the line.

Anything specific to look for before buying the 2008 model.

Thanks for your insights

Parts shouldn't be a major issue as all GM dealers will honor Pontiac stuff. The only caveat is that anything Pontiac specific will likely have to be ordered instead of in stock so there will be that down-time to consider.

Pontiac resale value has always stunk so I don't see it getting much worse :banghead:

I actually thought that Pontiac resale value has gotten better since the discontinuation because a dealership offered to buy my friend's 2007 G6 back a month after Pontiac was cut.

As for parts, most people here get their parts from gmpartsdirect.com anyways.

Yeah, I regret not getting the GTP. At least I was smart and got the GT though. Atleast I'm not hating myself for meeting halfway.

the thing about the dealers not having the parts in stock is definitely true. They've had to order bunches of parts for mine so most repairs that involve replacing a Pontiac-specific part take at least 2 days. At least the dealer over-nights the parts though and I don't have to wait a week. The car IS supported and the parts aren't necessarily hard to get, at least.

and unless you're really worried about mileage, I would have to +1 on getting a GT or a GXP. If you're anything like me and some of the other folks here, you'll regret not getting the next thing up.
