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....

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.:mad:

The LeMans? That little Geo Metro looking trashback?
Yes....but it was not a Geo...it was Daewoo I believe. Total POS.

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.

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 :cool:

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

That is not the same engine in the Aveo... unless they are using the Ecotec in '09. I don't think it's the same 2.2 found in the G5, rather the new 1.8 Ecotec (which I believe is also in the Astra).

Not an exciting car, but very cheap to develop (obviously) and will make money.
ROI on this car is huge, just like the G5.

Neither the G5 or G3 were planned at the beginning of these cars' lives, but like I said, ROI is huge on them, so here they are.

Where have you been? This has been going on for some time now. :screwy:


What are some examples of how the partnerships with Asian automakers have put Pontiac in such a bad position?

Seems to be working out for the Chevy with the Aveo...
