    - Edmunds.com
  • The suspension returns a surprisingly sporty ride, and the solid structure helps make the interior a serene place to spend time.

What reviewers liked least about the Pontiac G6

  • If we had our druthers, we'd replace the way-bright chrome surrounds on the gauges with brushed rings and find better-shaped, more supportive seats.
