The G6 was Pontiac’s midsize family sedan before Pontiac was dissolved amid the GM financial crisis. Te most recent model is the 2010 version, and it is currently going for just above $13,000. While this might be an attractive bargain, you’ll want to consider the costs of ownership in addition to the sticker price. Your expenses don’t finish once you pay off the car. Ask yourself if fuel economy will be an issue? What will it cost to repair this car? Will your insurance premiums be high? If you’d like to learn to save on your Pontiac G6 insurance, read on.
The latest G6 was family-minded car, offering plenty of interior space both in the front as well as the back. It has attractive exterior styling, and was particularly tech-feature-friendly coming with many power features as standard.
It’s 3.5 liter V6 was powerful and ample enough to propel the car forward, while allowing you to cruise by comfortably. However, it’s possible to opt for the G6 convertible’s slightly more powerful 3.9 liter V6. However, it isn’t much of an improvement over the 3.5 liter.

One of the simplest ways to do this is simply by doing your research before sticking with an insurance company. Keep in mind that not all of them will give you the same rates, and not all of them will have the same discounts.
As a rule of thumb, you’ll want to get quotes from at least 3 different insurance companies. As you compare and contrast between the quotes you’ve been given, it’ll become evident which is the right choice for you.
In addition to this, you can consider dropping existing levels of coverage. Have you been accident-free for the last couple of years? Consider raising the deductible on your collision and comprehensive. Why? I’ll tell you.
Your deductible is supposed to insulate you from up-front costs in the event of an accident. This is contingent upon being in an accident. If you raise the deductible, you will lower your insurance premiums on a monthly basis; it is a sure bet. However, you will be responsible for more up-front costs in the event of an accident. It is a tradeoff.
Safety ratings are important because they could potentially lower your insurance premium. The safer your car is perceived to be by your insurer, the lower your premium is likely to be.
