  • Description This is my 2009 Pontiac G5 base model.
    2-door coupe
    2.2L engine 155 HP
    90K miles original

    Paid $4200.00 for the vehicle in 2017 with 75K miles.
    I bought this car in 2017 with 75K miles on it and have replaced and fixed all its problems or issues it had when I first got it. AND got all its interval services done as well that it was due for.

    I poured just over $4000 dollars of repairs into this car. Excluding maintenance. Thats why the price is 8 Grand because its worth that and drives brand new, it will take you across the country and back without an issue at all. A1 Certified Reliable and Dependable.

    Less than 30K miles driven currently in ownership, I have replaced all of the following:

    All the Struts & Springs suspension
    The steering column i-shaft
    New Brakes & Rotors
    4 brand new tires
    New Throttle body
    New Headlights because water damage to old ones
    New Fog Lights
    Entire LED kit bulbs for the car
    Replaced the Battery
    Replaced the dome light with one with map light toggle buttons
    Replaced the buttons on the steering wheel (left) for cruise control and info, since they werent working properly.
    INSTALLED the right side steering wheel buttons from a flat silver plain plate, to full functioning buttons for radio and call accessory, just need bluetooth now
    Replaced the cracked windshield
    Replaced the radio as it was completely scratched up and destroyed on the buttons

    For Interval Mileage maintenance, I have done the following:

    Cabin Filter Replace
    Engine Air Filter Replace
    Full Synthetic Oil Changes every 3K miles
    Transmission Fluid Exchange
    Fuel Injector Induction Cleanout
    Brake Fluid Flush
    Coolant Flush

    What is still fine but will need changed in future:
    Serpentine belt.. (im watching you..) No cracks yet, still good.


    Nothing wrong with it. Drives like a Cloud and handles so dang good. <3
