Please don't get me wrong about this post as I have been waiting and biting at the bit for the G8. Heck I even paid $8 to take the subway to get to the Auto show in DC then paid again to go into the auto show only to see the G8 and ask the reps a few questions and to get some fliers on the car (which by the way they didn't have)
, oh yea and paid again to park my car at the metro station parking lot. All just to go to see this one car in person.
I like the look, the feel, the room, the V8 & rear wheel drive, heck I like 97% of the car! However
after sitting in the car and talking to the salesmen at my local Pontiac dealership, I am disappointed in the lack of 4 of the "creature comforts" that even the Grand Prix comes with. The first is No XM, come on it is supposed to be a GM vehicle right. The second is No GPS, ok I know that shouldn't be a big deal but it already has a screen in the console, why not have a system that displays more than AM and FM... Let's add the XM and GPS to it; they already add On-Star in Australia. And the last 2 and really not the most
important but since I am listing things that I personally saw, Heads up display and why not add a memory seat configuration, you know for more that one driver.
Are these items going to be an option at a later time, this year or next year?
I was ready to get away from my current car for the G8 but I am now debating the issue of what type of car again.
Thanks and any input of what to look forward to would be greatful!
