Re: Bigger money traps... G60 or VR6?! (stic)

I voted tie, My g/f owns a vr6 and I own the g60, mine may break twice as often but when hers breaks it costs twice as much to fix so therefore the cost to fix both cars is pretty much the same.

Re: Bigger money traps... G60 or VR6?! (stic)

I have had a few of both and what i have gone through is g60 is a headache. I loved my g60 dearly but that thing was a money pit. W/ as much i ave had to fix my vr6 i can say that it was over all cheaper to fix. I just blew the headgasket and needed a bottom end and could care less for 3 reasons, 1 the parts are easier to get and more available 2 the vr6 when built seems alot faster then alot of g60's .3 my vr6 doesnt leave me stranded near as much as any g60 i have owned.I always seem to atleast be able to get it home w/ a huge tow bill.

Not to be offensive, but it's remarks like that - not actual bad experiences with g60's - that perpetuates the g60's bad reputation.

I think this poll should only be open to people who have owned both for more than a year each.

yep, that attitude is what makes the G60 have a bad name...
in the 6 years I have owned my G60 my brother has spent more on his SLC repairs than me. the only major repair I have had was the powersteering rack, maybe the waterpump (if you consider that big). the rest of the money I have spent was maintenance (g-ladder rebuild, suspension bushings, yadda yadda).
I think no matter which you you slice it they are about equal. labor on SLC's are def. more and it is easier to work on a g60 IMO.
