Pontiac G6 MCE

44 posts in this topic

The only change they did was reshaped the front grille to give the squarer look of the G8 and Vibe, then paint the side skirt body-coloured.

Otherwise everything else is the same.

Sorry, but this doesn't work. GM, you showed us how refreshes are done PROPERLY with the 9-3, but you're giving us this? Try again.

No no! You're all wrong! This is CLEARLY the Blue Devil mule!

GM, if this is what you're planning for a refresh of the G6, let me sum up every car reviewer's article right now:X

Oh, and I highly doubt it's 2009, since the specs are out on the Online Guide and they didn't mention there's a refreshed fascia, as they usually do.

They're making it harder to care.

I've been waiting four :censored: years for a new interior and for all the exterior quirks to be fixed.

Just kill the damn car already and make an Invicta coupe/vert to pick up the slack, if there's any slack to pick up.

Exterior on the coupe is fine...always has been. Interior is where the money needs to go, though...

Sure that's an MCE and not some generic test car? If that is indeed the G6 MCE, then :lol:

If this is an MCE, then I can only hope the center stack gets some heavy work.

The styling of the G6 was always fine, but its poor driving dynamics and dowdy interior were never fine.

Lame MCE for a lame car.

Well, mostly, yes... The sedan looks odd and the convertible looks unfinished with the chrome strip not surrounding the entire cockpit with the top down... but the GXP coupe with 6-sp auto and 3.6l v6 isn't really a bad package. If they would just improve the dash and console a little, I think it could be a winner... Right now you could get a loaded GXP coupe for around $25k-$26k. That's a good deal in my opinion.

But then you'd have to live with the G6 knowing you could have spent $6k-$7k more on a loaded Accord or Altima coupe. It has recently come to our attention that normal people could not and should not accept a $7k difference as a justifiable compromise when purchasing a new vehicle. After all, what's $7k difference? That's nothing. Now... if the mileage is off by 1 or 2 mpg THEN that'll break the bank and no normal person should accept the G6 being more expensive to operate than the Accord or Altima coupe.

So… It’s been settled… the G6 is doomed. It doesn’t deserve buyers. All Americans should stop buying the G6 because it’s not best in class. :yes:

Though it may be a good deal for us, how much less did GM spend developing and producing it? I bet it's less than $7k.

more profit for GM... :smilewide:

You know I'm just being sarcastic. ^_^

The only real comment in my post is that the G6 GXP coupe is a decent vehicle. Exterior is attractive and the two-tone leather seats and chrome dash accents don't look bad either. It's probably the only Pontiac vehicle, body style, and trim that I'd recommend... and maybe the G8 :AH-HA_wink:

Not a fan of the bloated looking coupe, this doesn't seem to make it better. The interior is only an improvement if the centre stack is replaced.

Will you marry me? I'm sure our respective partners won't mind.

I've always hated the production version of the G6, and this does nothing to change that fact.

The new fascia is sportier, more interesting than the current car. The lower half of the dash is tan in the picture, I think all G6 dashes are all black now. At least it's something to let you know you have an '09. I like it, as always, and I like this version better.

I'm seriously betting the only changes will see to the interior is the black tie being added and MAYBE the HVAC to match that of the Aura/Malibu. One could only hope for different cloth seats. The current ones (at least the pattern on them) look horrendous.

I sit here and mull over this car and I just can't begin to tell you all how disappointed I am. :nono:

The Morocco (orange/black) leather was gone, but not the tan.
