2009 Pontiac G8 GT

The G8 is an impressive car for the money, but it's let down by a slow, easily confused transmission and a slightly floaty ride on the back roads. The interior is decent for the money but there are some seriously cheap details like the handbrake and some secondary plastics.

I was pretty impressed with the steering and overall chassis feel.

The G8 needs polishing, but I like it. I can't wait to drive the manual GXP version. GM should also consider putting in a ZF six-speed automatic. It would transform the car.
