    It's the base model G6, 2.4L/4-speed only, and only in sedan form, equipped with everything that's usually standard but with the following nixed, to make it a 1SV (special value)/1SA:
    -Cruise control
    -Remote keyless entry
    -2008 and earlier, 16" steel wheels & caps vs. 17"+ on all other models

    So, a 4-cyliner sedan G6 base without a couple of typical goodies, to make it the lowest priced version.
    Certified car nut...ask me, I've probably owned it, driven it, sold it...or thought about it...

    Jury still out on this?

    Caddycruiser: you described a base model and a couple options that would put it in the 1/SV or 1/SA category, but how does one distinguish between the two?

    I'm leaning towards the "1/SA*LtdAvail*" because it's the 2009.5 with the updated front facia and center stack, however I'd really like to be sure and I've found nothing official anywhere (yet) to help me pin this down.

    Seems like the kind of information a buyer would like to know, esp with the demise of the brand.

    Thanks in advance for the discussion.

    I drove this car home for my mom to test-drive. It was a 2.4 and it was very nice. It made me want to trade in my recently purchased 05' GP because it just drove so much smoother.

    I (think) I May Have Cracked The Code...

    After spending quite a bit of time on the online auto configuration sites like NADA, Edmunds, Truecar, etc... I think I've found some information that helps me to make a somewhat educated assumption on which particular model I have...

    So, for whoever may be interested, here's my findings.

    What I knew: 2009.5 G6 4dr SEDAN
    What I didn't know: (1SV) (1SB) (1SA*LtdAvail*)

    When you try to build a 2009 G6 online here's the engine options I found for each:

    1SV - 2.4L (LE5) ONLY

    1SA*LtdAvail* - 2.4L (LE5) or 3.5L (LZ4)

    1SB - 2.4L (LE5) or 3.5L (LZ4) or 3.5L E85Flexfuel (LZE)

    Verdict: Since my car is a flexfuel vehicle I can only assume that the particular configuration is a 2009 G6 Sedan w/1SB.

    The base invoice for the 1SB is ~$650 higher than the 1SA. Assuming no other differences, is it realistic to assume that accounts for the price difference in the engine???

    The SV in "1SV" is "Special Value" - the de-contented value leader sedan. I assume 1SA/1SB is another equipment package. They may have changed from 1SA to 1SB for the 2009.5 G6 leading to the "limited availability" of the 1SA package (only out there on existing 2009 models)? I believe that Flexfuel capability was new for the 2009.5 model.

    It's a 1SB. Was that the question?

    Yes, seems like a 1SB... what's the reference? I've been trying to find something somewhere that describes what a 1SB is and what a 1SA because there's a difference in base price of about $600.
