Pontiac G6 Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • 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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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???

    I work for a dealer here in Mesa, AZ, a geo is a GM vehicle, it was a joint venture between toyota and GM, so unless you own another vehicle that is non-GM you wont qualify for the conquest rebate.

    Hi Car_man! I too am a Michigander. I am looking at buying vs. leasing a 2007 G6 Sedan (not GT or GTP, just the basic) but adding on the Sun & Sound Package as well as the Preferred Package (w/ remote starter). I have been doing some research (on this website actually) to determine the MSRP and TMV. The car that I want has an MSRP of $20645 and a TMV of $19880. I have gotten a few quotes from different dealers. The latest one I got was $344/month to lease (for 36 months with 20,000 miles) and $398/month to buy (for 60 months).

    That includes tax and the current $1000 back rebate as well as the GM Supplier discount (which by the way do you know how much that is?).

    I'm just looking for some feedback. Thanks for your help! :blush:
  • Hi Car_Man,

    I am being offered 438/month for 36 months, 12k miles/year with premium package+ Carpeted Front and Rear Floormats + Driver and Right Front Passenger Side-Impact Air Bags.

    I am NYC do you think its a good deal ?

    Thanks

    Hi sk8namy. You should be able to do better than TMV on a Pontiac G6. Shoot for right around dealer invoice minus any available incentives. There is a total of $1,500 lease cash on the '07 G6 in Michigan plus if you haven't leased yet through July 9th GM is providing any additional $1,000 bonus cash on this car. I don't believe that GM is offering a special supplier incentive on this model any longer. When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure that the dealer you are working with uses GMAC's current base lease rate of 3.0% to calculate your monthly payment.

    Hi aryagaurav5. 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.

    I am looking at buying or leasing the 2007 G6 Convertible. With the 0% financing and $1,000 cash back, should I buy or lease? What should the final cost be with traction and stability control? I am in the Portland, Oregon area.
    Thank you, Car Man!
    (I was also considering the Mustang convertible, but the hardtop convertible seemed quieter on the highway and the deals now seem better. Do you agree?)

    I am looking to get the cheapest lease I can on a G6 with a V6 for 36-39 months and 10-12K miles. Could you please list the current lease residuals and money factors for those terms? Which model would be my best bet? I am also considering a fairly loaded Impala - would I do better with that considering the higher rebate and the fact that I can use $2000 from my GM card instead of $1000 for the G6?

    I think that I can answer your question. There is no penalty or additional fee for paying off a GMAC Smart Buy early.

    My parents just purchased a car using GM's Smart Buy program. My parents wanted to take advantage of the Smart Buy rebate, but not incur the monthly interest charges over the life of the Smart Buy lease.

    The finance person at the dealership suggested that they should purchase the car using the Smart Buy program and wait two months before calling GMAC financing to inform them that they wanted to pay off the car in full. After one month (before my parents even received the payment booklet), my parents called GMAC financing and stated that they wanted to pay the car in full. The GM rep gave them a mailing address and the amount they owed. The amount they owed was based on the price they paid for the car and interest charges accrued up to that day (about one month's worth). The GMAC financing rep added an additional four days worth of interest charges to the amount based on an estimate of how long it would take the U.S. postal service to deliver the check if my parents mailed the check that day.

    My parents mailed the check for the car on the same day (USPS Priority mail with tracking) and since it took only two days for GMAC financing to receive the check, they were reimbursed for two days worth of interest.

    Since it was so easy to pay off the Smart-Buy early, I wonder if my parents would have saved even more money in interest charges if they would have called GMAC financing sooner (maybe two weeks after they purchased the car).

    I know that I am responding to an old post, but my response is for those people who are searching the forums for an answer about paying off a GMAC Smart Buy purchase early.

    To be honest my grandpa actually works for gm and he gave me a good deal but now i want a bigger engine and more pull and im not getting that from the v4. He told me that if i trade it in i would be screwed so yeah im keeping it for 3 years think i could fit a ls2 into a regular g6.... :confuse:
  • The top won't go down. Again. Started a week ago tuesday (8/31/07). Could not bring it in to the dealer until yesterday (8/7/07) because they could not get me in until Thursday and I needed my vehicle, top down or not, to go out of town right after work on Friday.

    Called me yesterday to say that they had cleared some codes in the computer and the problem still existed. Service Rep called today to inform me that they have ordered 3 parts that need to be replaced on the top mechanism. Two of the three are in stock - the third is not in stock and they have no expected date for it to be in.

    So the dealership has asked me to come pick up my car and wait until all three parts are in to have service scheduled as the two stock parts cannot go in without the third.

    Just for stats, this is a 2007 HTC purchased in July 2006. It was in for service on the top at 1500 miles, and now it has 30,500. I drop the top every day possible(not raining and warm enough) to drive home from work... until last week. Now, there is a chance I'll be out of commission for weeks, again in the prime summertime fun days. We have snow here.. cold temps. Frustrating!
