The Pontiac G5 is a sleek machine with some real punch to it. I'd forgotten how nice it is to drive a stick shift, hearing the changing purr of the engine as you switch gears. The fact that sticks get better gas mileage doesn't hurt either. It does almost as well as a hybrid with 28-35 mpg. It's a small car which is good for squeezing into parking spaces especially next to those behemoth SUVs you see everywhere, but it's surprising how much you can fit in the back, especially when you fold down the back seats. As a two door it's a pain in the butt to put people in the back seat and forget car seats especially ones you have to put backwards and doubly if you have to use more than one. The back seat is a little cramped in general But if you have kids old enough for booster seats or less but still in grade school you can fit three in back relatively comfortably, if you have to. I love love love the onstar it came with. I don't know how I ever did without it. I was able to find one for about $8000. Needed some paint, and new brake pads but ran pretty well. I'd recommend it for someone with one kid or less or as a second car for the family.
