I've got roughly 75k miles of a mixture of city and highway driving, and so far she's held up fine. Electronics are hit or miss as many things are failing. Two blown door speakers, CD player skips and scratches up CDs, auto door locks are buggy, cruise control lets go at random, oil life minder resets itself, power steering motor died, just to name a few. However, the mechanics are good, never had a serious problem since buying used with 37k miles. Just standard maintenance things like loose endlinks, spark plugs, weak battery, questionable accessory belt, hole in flex pipe, broken rear springs, brakes (drums last much longer though) minor things really, so you could call it reliable. I learned stick on this car and have beaten it on more than one occasion so I really can't complain about the little issues.
However, being a 2006 base model G5 sedan, the resale is appalling. Best offer I've ever got was $2000. My plan is to stick it out with the old girl until she is no longer roadworthy.
