Model Highlights

Pontiac's 2008 G6 includes three different body styles--sedan, coupe, and convertible. The sedan is available in base, GT, or GXP trim, while the coupe is offered in either GT or GXP models. The convertible is only available in mid-range GT trim.

The G6 convertible has room for four and a unique, tight folding-hardtop arrangement designed by German coachbuilder Karmann that can stow away in about 30 seconds.

A total of four different engines are offered in the G6 range, each paired with either a four-speed automatic or six-speed automatic transmission. Base G6 sedans get an economical 2.4L four-cylinder engine underhood, with 164 horsepower, matched with a four-speed automatic. GT models step up to a 219-horsepower, 3.5L V6, plus a four-speed automatic with manual control. The top GXP model, which is new for 2008, gets a more powerful, 3.6L engine with variable valve timing, making 252 horsepower, along with a new six-speed automatic, also with manual control. On convertibles, the 3.5L engine is standard, with a 3.9L V6, making 222 horsepower, is optional. Both come with a four-speed automatic.

With the four-cylinder engine, the G6 returns impressive EPA fuel economy estimates of 22 city, 30 highway under the stricter 2008 calculations.

The base G6 includes air conditioning, a CD sound system, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. The mid-range GT adds a generous amount of equipment, including fog lamps, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, cruise control, keyless entry, leather interior trim, and an upgraded eight-speaker Monsoon audio system with subwoofer.

Besides the new 3.6L engine and six-speed transmission, the GXP brings a sportier edge to the G6, with a performance-tuned suspension, larger 18-inch wheels, the StabiliTrak stability control system, and a number of other improvements in addition to what's offered on the GT, including a unique front fascia, dual exhaust tips, a rear spoiler, heated seats, and automatic climate control.

Six air bags are now standard on the G6, including side thorax air bags in front, and standard side curtain air bags on coupes and convertibles.

Major options--some of them available in value packages--include power-adjustable pedals, six-way power heated leather seats in front, an in-dash, six-disc changer, and remote vehicle start.


Pros

Unique folding hardtop convertible; standard side and curtain air bags; fuel efficiency (four-cylinder); solid acceleration (V6s).


Model News

For 2008, the Pontiac G6 lineup is bolstered with a new, performance-oriented GXP sedan and coupe, which replace the former GTP for all but the convertible. The convertible is now only available in a single trim, the GT.

Safety is also stepped up. Seat-mounted thorax side impact air bags are now standard on all models, along with anti-lock brakes. Entertainment systems are improved with a new auxiliary input jack for all models, plus OnStar. GT models now get standard XM satellite radio, and an 18-inch wheel option is new for the GT convertible.

Three new exterior colors are offered: Cranberry Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic, and White Diamond Tricoat.


Value Writeup

The 2008 Pontiac G6 takes a high road between efficiency, comfort, and sportiness, managing to appeal to those who value each; and it's one of few cars in its size class to offer the two-door coupe body style. The convertible model ranks as the lowest-priced vehicle with a power-folding hardtop.

Summary
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Saturn Aura and model year 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 vehicles, equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission. On these vehicles, the tabs on the transmission shift cable end may fracture and separate.

Consequence
If the tabs were to fracture and separate, the shift lever and the actual position of the transmission gear may not match. The driver would be able to move the shifter to 'PARK' and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in 'PARK.' The vehicle may not be able to be restarted and the vehicle could roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible crash without prior warning.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a retainer over the cable end or replace the shift cable as necessary. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, November 12, 2012. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-521-7300.

General Motors safety recall number 12106. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2004-2006 and 2008-2009 Chevrolet Malibu, 2004-2006 Malibu Maxx, 2009-2010 HHR (non-turbo), 2010 Cobalt, 2008-2009 Saturn Aura and 2004-2007 Ion, and 2005-2009 Pontiac G6. In the affected vehicles, there may be a sudden loss of electric power steering (EPS) assist that could occur at any time while driving.

Consequence
If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will perform one of four bulletins. Parts are not currently available. GM expects to send an interim notification around May 28, 2014. When parts are available, owners will be mailed a second letter to come in to have the applicable bulletin applied. Bulletin 14115 covers model year 2004-2007 Saturn Ion, 2009-2010 Chevrolet HHR and 2010 Chevrolet Cobalts. Dealers will replace the EPS motor. Bulletin 14116 covers model year 2004-2006 Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, 2005-2006 Pontiac G6 and 2008-2009 Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura built from March 1, 2008, through June 27, 2008. Dealers will replace the torque sensor assembly. Bulletin 14117 covers model year 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura built from February 1, 2008, through February 28, 2008. Dealers will replace the torque sensor assembly and EPS motor controller unit. Bulletin 14118 covers model year 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura built from O...

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2004-2012 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles manufactured May 16, 2003, through October 11, 2012, 2004-2007 Malibu Maxx vehicles manufactured June 25, 2003, through April 5, 2007, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 vehicles manufactured May 26, 2004, through January 4, 2010, and 2007-2010 Saturn Aura vehicles manufactured April 24, 2006, through May 26, 2009. In the affected vehicles, increased resistance in the Body Control Module (BCM) connection may result in voltage fluctuations in the Brake Apply Sensor (BAS) circuit. These fluctuations can cause one or more of these conditions: the brake lights to illuminate without the brake pedal being pushed; the brake lights to not illuminate when the pedal is pushed; difficulty disengaging the cruise control; moving the gear shifter out of the 'PARK' position without pushing the brake; and disablement of crash avoidance features such as traction control, electronic stability control, and panic braking assi...

Consequence
Any of the above failure conditions increases the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will attach the wiring harness to the BCM with a spacer, apply dielectric lubricant to both the BCM and harness connector and the BAS and harness connector, and will relearn the brake pedal home position, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), 1-800-762-2737 (Pontiac), 1-800-553-6000 (Saturn). GM's number for this recall is 13036.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
