2009 Pontiac G8 GT

Dynamically brilliant; materially flawed. Although the engine sounds marvelous and pulls like a freighter, the transmission was easily confused in manual mode (and later decided to shun first gear completely). The structure wasn't as strong as it could be, as I experienced some scuttle shake. Ergonomics appear to be from the 1990s with dated red displays, and the smell of the cheap plastics gave me a headache.
