Default Reasons why I should get a g8

Here's some of the reason I think I should get one, it seems to get goo gas mileage which wouldn't matter of it doesn't, and you get a lot for the money of one, they make good power with bolt ons, they are sleeper, and since Pontiac is gone it'll be worth a lot more down the road. They sound like sex. Anybody else can jump in, oh and I think their maybe one around here. So makes you feel special when you dont see a whole lot of what you have

For the type of car (4-door) I think the G8 is the only choice next to the newer CTS-V's if that's what your looking for.

I think they look great, the interiors are great, the preform great, they are V8. To me you can't go wrong I love them.

I knowwww! This dealership is being dumb, first dealership I've ever called and they never called me back. Never heard of that. It is a ford dealer so could have something to do with it

They are a great car but the Gas miles thing your a little off. Hwy they are good on gas as long as you stay at a constant speed and dont speed up to fast or exit the highway at all but city driving its pretty bad.. Anywere from 13-18mpg around the city.. Thats bone stock and stock with a Ram air intake avg..

At my power level I average 15 city 24 highway driving fairly aggressive. When I had a stock car I got 18 city, 30 highway with dod active. Car weighs a lot, which doesn't help, but is worth every bit you paid for it

Mine stock with a tune and vararam got 21 city and 27 highway. Now with my mods-headers, cam, CAI, gears, solo exhaust, I get about 18 city and 24-25 highway. DOD still active. The g8 is an awesome car, u have eat of three worlds. They are rare, have tons of room(leg room and trunk space) and can be fast with just a little bit of attention, good luck on ur search!
