The G8 and CTS are two great looking cars.
You can get a base 08 CTS for about $40. The direct injected 3.6 v6 in the CTS puts out 306 hp. Or you can go a little cheaper and go with the base 3.6 which puts out 255hp if I remember right. My CTS gets about 22-24 mpg mixed and runs great. 5 spd auto trans and rwd platform.

I didn't get the G8, CTS or the 300. I got a ..... G6 3.5 GT! WTF! hear me out I went to a used car dealership looking for a used CTS or 300 that I could do a straight trade for my Xterra. I found a used 300 for about $12,000 very good looking car (black, w/22's) but once I sat down and talked number they bumped the price to $18000 +tax, title and license and dealer add-ons. I was pissed and walked out there. So I went to another used car and saw this G6 and it was only $11K and they took my trade for $9K the other palce only offer $4k and I wasn't able to sell my it quick enough. so I pull the trigger, this car is great I get about 29 MPG highway with a 3.5 V6! and it is very light and peppy! and I'll pay it off in a month! no more car payment! I love the MPG i went from 13 to 29!

the wife still wants the CTS but this will do until next summer, then I get a used 2008 CTS with the 3.5 Direct injection engine.

Congrats - I drove a G6 GT once and I loved it too. And having no car payment definitely rocks.

G6 is a good little car. I thought that it had a 3.6 not a 3.5, but I could be wrong.

The High Feature DOHC 3.6L is an option. Standard GT engine is the old OHV 3.5L, which is no slouch either. Works well in both the G6 and the Malibus that I've driven.

I love how there are tons of power options for the G6 - everything from the base 4-banger Ecotec to the High Feature 3.6 and even the 3900 V6. Too bad they dropped the 6-speed manual transmission.

actaully they have a 3.5, 3.6, 3.9 and 4 cylinder 2.4. I have the 3.5 and it's very peppy.

Man, I hate being wrong. I guess I just never looked to closely. I was looking at these last year for a new work vehicle and every one that I saw was either the 4 banger or the 3.6. I guess you learn something new every day.
