2009 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible Review
This good-looking and smooth-shaped vehicle is a relatively, as far hardtop convertibles go, affordable excuse to alleviate boredom. Driven by a decent 3.5-liter V6 engine that emits a pleasant hum, the rear spoiler-clad 2009 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible is also available as a coupe or sedan, competing with models such as the Nissan Altima and Volkswagen Jetta. This front-wheel-drive droptop is equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, and shows off suitable handling although with some torque steer.
Inside are comfortable cloth bucket seats—heated leather versions are available—and an XM satellite radio-capable AM/FM/CD audio system with audio jacks for iPod/MP3 players. There’s plenty of room in the front, but noticeably less in the rear. A slow-to-retract top and a small trunk with a heavy door doesn’t charm. The G6 GT convertible’s slew of options helps, however, including features such as dual exhaust outlets, a six-way power driver seat and an audio system with a six-disc CD changer.
