Pontiac G3 Wave... WHY, PONTIAC?

Just when you thought Pontiac was inching it's way back up to the top. They pull this shenanigan..... Pontiac G3 'Wave' is CAR? No like I said on Autoblog, it's TURD : The Ugly Rebadged Daewoo.











If You want to post here, you have to give it at least one compliment. the little POS needs it....

'Those wheels sure are are round'.............

That color sure is red....what a freakin joke. Torrent, you probably do not recall a crappy re-badged korean tin can from the past known as the LeMans (sick). The car was a total FAILURE using a grand name from Pontiac's past. This car here is somewhat the same...as in..FAIL.

I know, but it looked freakishly similar to a Geo. What was GM thinking? Back then- and right now? It should be called the G3 LeMans, because they already destroyed the nameplate.

Yeah, that would be fitting...SAD, but fitting!

So it's a Pontiac Aveo, big deal. GM needed to get into this small car market and they did with the Chevy Aveo. Why not go the efficient route and take advantage of one of your partners who already have a car out instead of spending millions in R&D etc

This is a natural fit for GM. It will sell more cars and keep the company headed in the right direction

Hey, atleast it's better than the Vibe, which is a rebadged Toyota.

Atleast this thing is built by a GM-owned company.

EDIT: I wouldn't mind one if it has a decent engine in it, still much better than that **** Vibe.
