    I just worked my way to a 2006 Pontiac G6 GTP sedan.

    6 speed manual
    Leather Package -- $1265
    Premium Value Package w/ Sunroof -- $1650
    Total Package Savings -- ($500)

    MSRP (incl dest) --> $26,105

    I got it at $23,000($1400 under invoice) - $2500 rebates - $3300 GM Card Credit for $17,200 + TTL

    That just seems too good to pass up. What to do...what to do.
  • I am pretty set on buying a Honda Accord. I have owned a Chevy Monto Carlo and had lots of problems. However, looks wise the Pontiac G6 is younger and hotter than an accord. I would probably get a 2007, my dad has a GM card and is willing to give me money towards this car so he can use his points up. He has no need for them.

    Anyway, my question to everyone is regarding their G6 sedan? Are you happy w/it?

    The one I bought was for my daughter. She LOVES it! I think it's to small and has to many blind spots. However, she's 20 and I'm almost 50.

  • I am looking to lease a Pontiac GT G6 Convertible with Premium Pkg. with a MSRP of 29,969 for 3 years/10k miles with nothing out of pocket (sign and drive.) This is the deal they want to give me for nothing out of pocket...$411 a month. Is this a good deal? I'm looking to do this ASAP if you think this is a good deal.

    Thanks

  • I am wrong the MSRP is 30,960 and the buyout is $17,337.

    Please advise!!

    I just bought my daughter an 07 G6 1SV for $500 under invoice with 60/0% and free floor mats. This deal included the Conquest rebate of $500. The dealer, Suttle Motors, is located in Newport News, VA. We had a pressure-free, cordial, buying experience. To top it all off, the dreaded "dealer processing fee" was only $75.

    I bought my G6 two weeks ago at Royal Pontiac in Sussex, N.j. and couldn't be happier.
    Mine has the premium package, side air bags and the adjustable pedals and is granite with the ebony-morocco interior. Total list on the car was 31,200. They sold me the car for 30k less a $1000 rebate, a $500 presidents day sale cash, a $1000 Conquest rebate (I owned a honda), $1000 in GM Card dollars and a bonus $1500 in GM Card Dollars...a Total of $6200 off the sticker. The buying experience was upfront, honest and with no games being played.
    Now for the icing on the cake. Shortly after driving the car off of the lot, the car developed a rattle in the roof. In addition, the roof wouldn't open when I arrived home. Needless to say, I returned to the dealer the next day. They were extremely apologetic, both the Sales Manager and General Manager, in addition to my salesman, talked to me and assured me it would be taken care. They immediately gave me a loaner car, kept my car for a few days and repaired both the roof and the rattle. For my trouble, they arranged w the Pontiac factory rep to extend my 36000 mile bumper to bumper warranty to 60,000 miles. (and paid for the all weather mats I had ordered).
    A great deal, a fantastic customer focus, and a super car...a great combination.

    Hi,

    Could anybody tell me if this sounds like a good deal:
    $5,600 downpayment ($2,200 cash and $3,300 GM card points)
    $150 per month including taxes (in CA 8.25%)
    15k miles
    Pontiac G6 V6 non-GT almost $4000 in options

    Thank you!

    I went shopping for the g6 convertible with a sticker price of 32,375--down payment of 2800, rebates of 1k, the monthly paymnet is 440. With buy out at 17,800 and 12k miles.

    Vs I can buy the car zero interest for 3 years and see what I get for it at the end of 3 years.

    Implicit is a 7.1% money rate on the lease.

    Comments please. ?
  • Hey Car_man, this is my first time leasing a car. I am looking into the Pontiac G6 convertible among other cars. I am seriously considering the the G6 hardtop convertible, fully fully loaded, (leather, xm radio, side impact airbags, etc...). I will be leasing the car in Miami, and I have tier one credit. I would prefer a 2 year lease, although if it makes that much of a difference in price I would take a 3 year lease. After all is said and done (taxes, fees, etc.) approximately how much should I expect to pay per month?

    Hi um30. It is a great idea to use your GM card points to make a down payment on your lease, however I always advise consumers against making cash down payments on leases. You would be better off holding onto the $2,200 that you are using to make a capitalized cost reduction. The main reason that I advise consumers against making down payments on leased vehicles is if your car is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered, your down payment essentially disappears.

    You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the car that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this car's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

    Hello hal56. The lease rate that you were quoted for this car is way too high. GMAC's base lease rate for a 36 month lease of this car is only 3.0% right now. Make sure that this is the lease rate that the dealer you lease from uses to calculate your vehicle's monthly payment. The other negotiable aspect of this deal is your car's selling price. Make sure to find out what this number is before agreeing to any deal. Feel free to post the selling price in this discussion and I will gladly give you my opinion on it.

    Hwy andyking18. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    i probably will end up buying the car and using the zero% financing GM offers as the zero% is not flowing thru to the lease--if the dealer does come back and offer cheap money cost in the lease I will obviously reconsider--I will see what te dealer says today

    car price was good and can get a little better and the dealer already said he will reduce a bit more--its a game we have to play.

    Sounds like a great deal, how did you get the $1500 bonus?

    Thanks,

    Tom
  • Hi Car Man! Great service you provide. Here is where I am at with my dealer in Michigan. G6, V6 with MSRP of $21465, quoted $20605 (just above supplier of $20499 but I wanted to use my GM Card points).

    Lease was quoted with $1500 "lease incentives" and $2800 card points at $202.06 plus start up fees (I have to see what those are). Sound in the ball park? 39 months and 12,000 per year.

    I have asked for the lease rate and residual. What should they be? I am considering bumping to 15k per year - what should the impact be?

    Thanks! :D

    I've been a GM Card used for a few years. I simply received an announcement in the mail in mid-march saying that if I bought a new GM car before March 31st, I would receive an bonus of 1500 points or dollars. This could also be used in addition to the 1000 GM points I was able to apply from my GM card account to the purchase.

    I am in the middle of this right now. I did this and it showed up on my credit as a voluntary repo. Not good! Looking for advice on how to get that removed from my credit. Please help.
  • We bought a used 2006 G6 Sedan with around 6,000 miles on it for $16,900. But then we had to add on the amount we owed on the previous car which was around $5000 plus an extended warranty and Ziebart. I think it came out to be around $21,000-$22,000 after everything.
    We took the car in for the Ziebart a week after buying it and they ended up busting out the rear passenger side window and had to special order it. The car was suppose to only be there for a day or two and ended up being there for 2 weeks. The dealer gave us a Grand Am loaner car and the POS ended up dying the next day. The sent a 90 year old man to come look at it. I kept telling him it wasn't the battery but he insisted on charging it anyways. Go figure, the Grand Am still didn't start and we were given another one. This one was filthy and even had left over weed in the console, totally disgusting.
    After complaining again, the dealership gave us a 2007 G6 GT Coupe to drive and installed keyless entry on our G6 for free. It was a complete mess but atleast we got the free keyless entry.

    Am leasing 07 G6 GT, MSRP 25,609 lowered to 24609, 4% APR, 39 months, 15000 miles. Monthly payment $330.58, no trade-in, no downpayment. Amt due at start $555.58 Have acqisition fee $595.00 which I can understand. Other fee is "total add cap cost" $595.00. I have never heard of this and the sales manager said that it's just some "GM thing on a lease". I was not satisfied with his answer. I will pay it if it's justified but it seems like B>S> to me Can you clarify this for me "Carman"? Should I try to get this removed? Should I try to get them to lower the price more?
  • budmantombudmantom Posts: 33
    Last month I bought a used 2006 G6 GTP with auto and moonroof for $14k plus TTL(I think it was a rental).

    Great little car and a great bang for the buck

    I just did the deal tonight before the rebates end. MSRP $20,720 -$500 dealer discount -$2000 Cash Back Rebate -$1000 Conquest Rebate -$3773 GM Card points. Final price before tax and tags $13,447. I really wanted a Toyota but I just couldn't resist this price.
  • fenwahfenwah Posts: 58
    How were you able to get $3773 in GM Card points. It was my understanding that you could only use $3500 over the course of seven years (and this being on the old program).

    So pretty much you paid MSRP minus the $500 dealer discount. Did you try to negoitate more off MSRP, or did you just take what was in the ad in the Sunday paper?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Thanks running_on_mty. The selling price that you were quoted for this car is pretty good if it is just above GM's supplier purchase price. As you were told, GM is providing a total of $1,500 in cash incentives on leases of this car in your area right now. Just make sure that the dealer you are working with uses GMAC's base lease rate of 4.3% to calculate your car's monthly payment and you're in business. GMAC's 39 month, 15,000 mile per year residual value for the '07 Pontiac G6 is currently 56%. If you were to lease it with only 12,000 miles per year, its residual value would be 3% higher.

    Hi smithey. GMAC charges an acquisition fee of $595 on every vehicle that it leases. Individual dealers do not have the authority to waive this charge. You can either pay it at lease signing or have it added to your vehicle's selling price to make it part of your monthly payment.

    As far as this car's selling price goes, I see that you are being given a $1,000 discount on it. This is a good selling price...IF the dealer then subtracts the $500 bonus cash and $750 lease cash that are available on it. If the dealer is not subtracting these incentives from your car's price you can do better.

  • mikey00mikey00 Posts: 462
    The older GM card has a $39 fee per year, which gets added directly to your points each year. So you have $500 max points each year plus $39 times 7 years equals $3773. in total points. I also have 2 cards. One in my wife's name with me as secondary and one in my name with my wife as secondary. This way I get a $3773 discount every 3 1/2 years.
    The Sunday paper ad offered a $20,700 G6 for $17,200 including all GM rebates. This was $2000 cash back rebate and $1000 conquest rebate. I had to show proof of ownership of a non-GM for the conquest rebate. I assumed the remaining $500 was dealer discount. Instead of trying to negotiate this price down any further, I negotiated my trade price upward and got more than I was expecting for my 2000 Alero. Once the deal was done and I was in the finance guy’s office to finalize the deal, I brought out my GM points

    Is there a list of brands that this applies to somewhere? The reason I ask is that I have a Geo. When I tried to get an owner loyalty rebate for someone who owned any GM vehicle a while ago I was told by GM that a "geo" is not a GM vehicle. Now I am being told that a "geo" is a GM vehicle. I have been searching for the terms of the conquest rebate and can't seem to find anything. Apparently my car ends up not being anything whenever GM has a rebate. Anyone???
