    What reviewers liked least about the Pontiac G6

    • If we had our druthers, we'd replace the way-bright chrome surrounds on the gauges with brushed rings and find better-shaped, more supportive seats.

      - Car and Driver
    • Equipped with this so-called sport suspension, we expected the GT to be, well, sporty. It wasn't.

    • Bumps cause slight knocking in front end.

      - MSN Autos
    • A variable assist electric power steering system provides the feel of the road, although it isn't as precise as we'd hoped.

      - Cars.com
    • ...a few cheap bits here and there keep the G6 a step below the class standards.
