DescriptionThis is my 2009 Pontiac G5 base model.
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
What is still fine but will need changed in future:
Serpentine belt.. (im watching you..) No cracks yet, still good.
ZERO ISSUES, ZERO WARNING LIGHTS ON DASH.
Nothing wrong with it. Drives like a Cloud and handles so dang good. <3
