Default Pontiac g8 gxp?

I'm a ford gut but I kind like this car, has a family car sleeper vibe going on, considering buying one, but was wanting some feedback from people who own or have owned one before I decide.

Broke my heart to see GM kill Pontiac. They were always my fav. Still have a Grand Prix. The G8 is actually an Australian Holden with a Pontiac body.

Personally , I would stay away from it as its already way past obsolete , Although I may be biased as I am a life long Ford guy and work for Ford also .... Plus GM didn't go bankrupt for nothing either ...

Yes. They went bankrupt because the takers in the US have no idea who the makers in the US are nor do they feel in compulsion to support them...until one day they wake up and their simple, high paying service job has vanished.

Plus their car sales had dropped dramatically , which compounded their situation .

A sportscar enthusiast guy I used to work with had one and said it was the most fun car he ever had. Thing had a growl on it that was amazing.

Guess he never drove a Shelby GT500 , It would take a shot from Mike Tyson to get the smile off his face ....
