Consumer Review Video - 2009 Pontiac G8 GT 6.0L V8

Car Displayed: 2009 Pontiac G8 GT 6.0L V8

The 2009 Pontiac G8 GT is a moderately difficult car that can be time-consuming for the inexperienced car owner. It has some high points, though. Both of the fuse boxes are easily accessible, and the one in the engine bay conveniently comes with a small plastic fuse puller. The oil dipstick is directly visible and its maximum and minimum level markers are easy to read. The front wiper blades are simple to remove, too, requiring only the press of a tab in order to replace them.

Not everything is perfect on the 2009 Pontiac G8 GT. In order to access the fog light and second parking light the wheel well lining needs to be removed, which can be a tedious process. The cabin air filter is located in the cowl behind a large, cumbersome panel. The battery on the 2009 Pontiac G8 GT is located in the trunk, and multiple panels, fasteners, and pieces of lining must be removed in order to access it.
