Paid the dealer a visit

Given that my G6 is not in, I had to renew Cavy's plates, i.e. emissions test. I went to the PBG dealer I got my G6, and while doing the stuff I sat in 3 cars: Lucerne CXS, G6 GTP and Solstice. Here are my comments: Lucerne: Fit and finish is really nice, but the top of the dash material can really do better. Feels extremely rough to touch. Others such as seating surfaces are very plush and top notch. G6: Surprisingly I find the dash material here is better than the Lucerne. Except that there are some slight hints of cheap plastics (e.g. the lower part of the door, the centre console), otherwise I give it a pass. It's not exactly soft to the touch, but very similar to my friend's Mazda 3, which the media lusts over. Solstice: Same old. Huge gap in the door, extremely noticeable. Other than that, the actual dash looks perfectly fine. The only problem is the door panel. Personal opinions, feel free to bash me. Edited by ToniCipriani

I agree with you for the most part, except on the part about the Lucerne's dash. It didn't give me the impression that it was a "hard" plastic, and when I pressed on it a bit, it gave a bit, as if it was padded. This one i sampled had the tuxed blue/tan combo inside. The weak link in the G6 inside is the GMCSD. It looks like it was designed after the rest of the interior was completed.

Actually, it's not the dash top...it's the main dash panel below the woodgrain that has the hard, rough, brittle stuff....

Check it out next time you are in a Lucerne.....

The Lucerne is ok, not anything that wows you, but respectable. The interior of the G6 is pretty decent for the price. Everything about this car is much better than the Malibu. As for the Solstice, there are so many things that can be easily overlooked by the low price of the car.

To say the least. Including the amount of praise it gets even while it's dirty with snow and salt on it.
