It only had the G8 going for it imo, and if it wasn't selling (it would be on my top 5 for a new sedan) it makes sense.

I think it sucks, but as Boo said, the only thing going for it was the G8 (which is the only 4 door sedan I want)

but then again I am a Pontiac fan at heart, so I would feel that way. but its the same as Oldsmobile when it went...it happens, nothing they can do about it, they aren't making money.

I have a GrandPrix and it has been a great car. I would buy another one.

I get turned off by all the plastic they like to tape all over every car they make, especially on the sides. Never really understood that. It was cool in the early 90's, but they didn't know when to stop.

The Sunfire was about the most Ultra-gay car ever made. When I see a male driving one, I automatically assume that he's a pole rider.

1) Old people with money buy Buicks (and then drive really slow and annoy other drivers)
2) The multitudes of Chinese LOVE Buicks
3) GM makes bigger profits per vehicle on Buicks than Pontiac.

Didn't it say Hummer was going bye-bye too?:teehee:

Yep, Buick sells less here, but more worldwide by a good margin.

Hummer, Pontiac, Saturn, Saab, Pontiac.

I think its the right way to go. Pontiac has, what, the G8, G6, G5, Torrent, and then one or two more out of the US (I believe a G3 in mexico).

G6 competes against the malibu, G5 is the cobalt, torrent is the equinox, So really the holden-based G8 is the only that really leaves some holes in the lineup. And the new buick is 4 dr RWD as well.

I thnk they need to shrink the company, and kill brands. Better to smaller and healthy, than large and dead.

The G8 must be incorporated into the mailbu some how.

The rest of the line you can keep.

I'd rather see them kill either GMC or the Chevy truck lines and offer one brand of trucks with a broader range of options. I don't see as much of a draw to GMC (Yukon, Denali, etc) now that Cadillac has some of the same shit.
