    Pontiac hasn't made a decent car since the 70s.

    You don't think the G8 is a decent car?

    If it wasn't for China, Buick would be history.

    What's your criteria for a decent car?

    To start, something that doesn't look like a blind mental patient designed.

    The Lucerne is pretty decent, overpriced, but decent.

    The G8 and Solstice are both good cars.

    I have always enjoyed my GrandAM. I would of taken a G8 in a heartbeat.

    Of all the places I have lived, I have noticed that the GrandAm is very popular in Iowa.

    I agree that design wise, Pontiac has been a little lacking on most models but I could say the same thing about Ford, Honda, Toyota, Subura, etc.

    I'm really disappointed to hear about Saturn. They have made solid cars and have been pretty affordable.

    I used to really like the Grand Prix's when the body was changed in the late 90's. I drove one for work (50,000 miles per year) and it was only in the shop once...but despite the comfortable seat, kick butt factory stereo system and service history, I had problems with 2 pieces of body molding and the door and trunk seals sucked.

    The G8 isn't made by Pontiac. Either was the last decent car with a Pontiac logo - the GTO.
