About Pontiac G3

    The Pontiac G3 is a subcompact five-door hatchback that first hit US showrooms in anticipation for the 2009 model year. It is virtually identical to Chevy's Aveo in just about every way, aside from décor and badging placements. Like the Aveo, the Pontiac G3 is constructed off of the T200 platform, as is the Daewoo Kalos. In fact, both the Aveo and G3 are derived from the design of the Daewoo Kalos. When it premiered, the Pontiac G3 was outfitted with a standard 1.6L four-cylinder engine good for 106 horsepower and 105 pounds-per-foot of torque directed through a five-speed manual transmission (although a four-speed automatic was offered as an option). As for the model's overall dimensions, the Pontiac G3 measured in with a wheelbase of 98 inches, a width of 66.1 inches, a height of 59.3 inches, and an overall length of 155 inches.

    Standard equipment for the Pontiac G3 included cloth seating, air conditioning, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, OnStar navigation, a six-speaker CD/MP3 stereo system, a tilted steering column, and an auxiliary input jack. On the outside of the hatchback were 14" steel wheels, foglights, and a rear spoiler. The G3 was made available in just one trim level. However, Pontiac introduced different packages with more options for drivers to choose from. The Preferred Package added on power accessories, remote keyless entry, and heated outside mirrors. A Cruisin' Package offered cruise control, steering-wheel mounted stereo controls, and satellite radio. The Sport Package took it up a notch with 15" aluminum wheels and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Other options such as a sunroof and leather upholstery could be had across the board.

    Pontiac implemented a variety of safety features including front-seat side impact airbag and OnStar navigation. Government crash tests gave the Pontiac G3 five stars for frontal impact and four stars for side-impact protection, respectively. Following the 2009 model year, the G3 was discontinued from the lineup due to the overall phasing-out of the Pontiac brand. Even still, the G3 managed to make a name for itself and is still a fresh, visible presence on the road. As the lone subcompact hatchback representative under the Dodge banner, the G3 was a staunch competitor in what has become a highly-popular segment.

    With a rounded body and plenty of smooth lines on Pontiac G3 parts, the model gets attention wherever it is seen. But that's not the whole story. Thanks to a deceptively comfortable cabin along with a nice jump in performance due to reliable Pontiac G3 parts, the model also scores high marks for its overall drivability. In a segment where most other models seem to blend in with each other, the Pontiac G3 stands on its own.

    The Pontiac G3, which was introduced last month, may become one of the biggest GM's failures due to the low sales volume.

    As you surely know, the G3 is essentially a twin to the Chevy Aveo. GM decided to sell the subcompact as Pontiac last summer, right when the gas prices reached $4 per gallon. Even though the hatch hasn't been on the market for all that long, it is already struggling way too hard. It was reported by the Wall Street Journal that Pontiac dealers managed to sell only 141 units in March, with this there are 3,479 Pontiacs in stock. Bearing in mind that GM has 2,700 Pontiac stores, it's easy to calculate that with the current sales level, the company has a supply that will last 617 days. If the automaker stops production right now, the last 2009 G3 will leave the dealer lots in December 2010. Hopefully, the numbers can go up. According to GM Spokesperson John McDonald, the G3 is a relatively new model, so it may not yet have won broad public awareness. He also underlined that one-month sales rate of any car is unlikely to stay static for a long time, which is why the Wall Street Journal's calculations may not be that meaningful.
