STEERING

there is a steering-related problem with my pontiac g6 sedan. it has a clunk or snap upon backing out of parking-spaces and upon making turns from a dead-stop. it does not occur while at highway speeds. i am worried the steering-box is bad, as this problem occurred on a family 2005 pontiac g6. the box-assembly had to be replaced. why again two years later on a newer car.

STEERING

under good, dry road conditions on a freeway, a vehicle appeared to be moving into my lane and could have hit me. i started to brake to back off and moved to the right of my lane. the result was that the vehicle fishtailed 4 to 6 times before i regained control. there was no collision because i regained control and other drivers backed off. i took the vehicle to the dealership. their technician replicated the fishtailing. the service department person said that the combination of the g6 suspension, struts, weight distribution, and swept up design resulted in the g6 front dipping down when braked, lifting the rear and locking the brakes. gm and the dealership did nothing to correct the problem because they claimed that was normal for the vehicle and that the brakes and steering checked out as satisfactory. the dealership which checked the car out bought the car back for $3633 less than i paid for the vehicle a few months before. the vehicle had approximately 2000 miles on it. i believe the basic vehicle design is unsafe if fishtailing occurs with a common evasive maneuver under good weather and road conditions.

PARKING BRAKE

i've had my 2007 pontiac g6 in the shop several times for brake "issues". they changed pads, rotors and told me they couldn't stop the squeaking and that the strange "jumping" the brakes seemed to do was "normal" for abs - which i know is not correct as i have owned many cars with abs that didn't feel like this. recently, the traction control light came on, the brakes failed, the emergency brake failed and we hit the back of another car. gm sent an engineer out to look at the event data recorder; however, would not provide me with a copy of the report (they said it was "proprietary"). they are refusing to fix my car and when i asked why the traction control light came on, their "professional" told me "i don't know - i wasn't there!". i've seen several complaints on edmunds.com about the rotors, over-heating problems and the need to have them replaced with non-gm parts to (hopefully) fix the problem. this is a major safety concern for me and i intend to dispose of the car as soon as possible.

the sun roof of this vehicle creates so much wind noise when you exceed the speed of 40mph or more that it will give you a headache. i have address this problem with the dealer (wade raulerson pontiac, buick and gmc, gainesville, florida) at least three times. each time there is no improvement in the problems of reducing the wind noise. please let me emphasize that i am not the type who gets headaches. to me this is a safety issue which needs to be addressed.

driving to work on a winter day, had the rear defroster on to de-ice some ice on back rear window. i heard a "pop" sounded like a balloon popping, thought i had a flat, started to slow down, looked in my rear view mirror, that is when i saw that my back window was shattered. continued on to work, trying to avoid bumps on freeway. no luck, when i drove over a bump the glass started falling into the back of the car. when i got to work tried calling dealer, kept getting put on hold, called insurance company i asked them if a certain glass company was on their list of repair shops, it was, i had to pay a $100 deductible, the rear window of car was replaced. i believe it was a faulty heating element in the rear window.

my pontiac g-6 has steering problems. it started out making this popping noise whenever i turned a sharp turn. now the popping is getting worse. i was informed through a guy at work who has an 08' g-6 that the problem is in the steering knuckle. he has taken his to the dealership countless times to get it replaced and the new parts just keep going bad. he told me the problem was because of lack of lubrication, but yet there are no grease zerks to at grease. what a very poor design, what ignorance, especially this day and age. its common sense that moving metal parts need lubrication. i was told that the new proposal to fix it was to put a plastic shroud around the knuckle, pumped full of grease, and just hope and pray it works. i'm no mechanic but that seems pretty crappy if you ask me. i haven't had the time to take my car in to have it looked at yet, i'm hoping i don't have to pay for this out of my own pocket, because of pontiac's stupidity. i'm hoping that they come out with a recall soon before this problem causes a serious accident.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

the brake lamps may not operate properly because of corrosion in a wiring connector. corrosion in the connector could cause the brake lamps to illuminate when the brake pedal has not been depressed, or the lamps may not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. in addition, the cruise control may not engage, and greater brake pedal force may be required to shift the vehicle out of park. brake lamps that are not operating properly may not warn a driver in a following vehicle of the braking status and could lead to a crash without prior warning.

at around 51,000 miles my pontiac g6 (2007) began veering to the left and locking up. i heard a clunking noise several days before this happened when i turned the wheel from left to right. the clunk started off somewhat quiet and then got louder and cause it to become difficult to turn. when i would brake the car would shake and the steering wheel would turn left and right rapidly on it's own. i had all my brake pads replaced, even though the mechanic said there was nothing wrong with the brakes. i had the steering rack replaced. the problem went away for 3 months and then returned. the steering wheel began locking again making it difficult to recover from a normal turn. i had the steering rack replaced again. now 6 weeks later the clunking and shaking and steering problems are back. complaints of this problem are all over the internet. i have had this steering rack replaced 2 times and now it needs to be done again. all these replacements have happened over a 9 month period. it is extremely dangerous to drive when this happens and needs to be addressed.-

i have a 2007 pontiac g6 and the brake lights stay on when driving down the road and when i hit the brakes the lights go off. people driving behind have no idea when im actually stopping. also the cruise control will sometimes engage and sometimes it wont. this is a serious problem and pontiac needs to recall the 2007 or someone could get killed.

nhtsa campaign id number: 09v036000 unfortunately does not cover 2007 model year pontiac g6 vehicles and i am experiencing the exact same issue. this is a safety hazard with the potential for major injury. the brake lights come on at random and turn off when the brake pedal is pressed. from your own bulletin: brake lamps that are not operating properly may not warn a driver in a following vehicle of the braking status and could lead to a crash without prior warning. all pontiac g6 models should be included due to the safety issue at hand.

driving down the i75 expressway in heavy rain speed at the time was approx 60 miles per hour, decided to get of at the next exit until the rain cooled down. i then turned by steering wheel slightly to the right to merge onto the exit lane when the car instantly started spinning out of control...spun 5-7 times on the highway and then hit the median with the right tail end. upon impact the steering wheel along with part of the steering column snapped off into my lap with no air bag deployment. the steering wheel was in pulled right out and was now in my lap. the car is now in repair and i have requested the parts to be saved, the steering wheel is going to be replaced. i have contacted pontiac and we had a discussion...but i don't think they understand what happened i have not heard a word from them since the discussion.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

i have a problem that intermittently affects different aspects of the vehicle. the brakes lights will not operate properly. when the issues occurs the vehicle is very difficult to shift out of park. the brake lights will all be on with no pressure on the brake pedal. when the brake pedal is depressed the brake lights will go out. basically working in reverse. when pressure is applied to the gas pedal the brake lights will come back on. the cruise control will not operate when the issue is occurring. sometimes the issue can be resolved by stopping the vehicle, turn off the vehicle and restart. the issue will also just begin while the vehicle is in motion and may just as suddenly quit while the vehicle is in motion. there are no warning lights on the dash to indicate the issue is occurring. only at night, in a dark environment, are you able to know the issue is occurring because of the ability to see the center brake light is light. during the daylight, or city light environment, the non-functioning cruise is the only indication of the problem. improperly functioning brake lights is a high safety concern for me. when the issue is not occurring all brake lights are working properly as is the cruise control. internet search indicates this is a common problem with this vehicle.

i bought a brand new 2008 pontiac g6 base model 4 door 2.4l. at less than 20,000 miles i started getting brake problems. i brought it into the dealership and they told me that i needed the brakes turned and grinned. i refused to let them do that because other pontiac g6 owners have complained about the same issues and when they got theirs turned and grinned the same problems with the brakes occurred thereafter. now (@24,000) i have warped brakes, worn out pads, and a defective worn out i-shaft(steering rod). i brought my car in to the dealership last week, they replaced one of the rotors in the rear, replaced all pads and grinned and turned the rest of the rotors. they claimed my car was fixed but the second i drove out of the dealership the same warping noise was apparent coming from the brakes when i hit my brakes and also when the car was in motion. i was still hearing the clunking noise coming from the steering column. i have done extensive research and found that many americans around are experiencing the same issues with their brakes and i-shaft. this is a serious concern because last week at one point when i hit my brakes my car was not stopping. i kept hitting it and finally it gave in. this is a serious safety concern and pontiac/gm needs to do something about it before they get the same problems toyota customers have gone through! view website to view customers experiencing the same problems.(http://m.topix.com/forum/autos/pontiac-g6/tg830thjsjtp9bl0t) please do not ignore this complaint..this is a serious issue! do not wait until someone loses their life to this problem. let's enforce gm to recall this model and car so many americans can stop dishing out hundreds of dollars to fix problems with this car that continues to be a problem once fixed! thank you

vehicle was having numerous issue's when i originally bought it under "gm certified" warranty. the vehicle when a passenger exits the vehicle after driving will keep the airbag sensor engaged and left on. the car will continue to beep for the passenger to buckle up the seat belt until you either stop and turn off the car or buckle the seat. this is without any weight on the vehicle. the airbag will also randomly turn off and on while a passenger is sitting in the vehicle during turn's and other common driving techniques. i have had three gm dealers look at the issue and they have failed to diagnose and fix the problem. i have been notified that they are pulling a code out of the ecm that they don't even know what it means... gm has failed to fix or offer a fix for this issue and i am worried that if these continue to happen if i am in a accident with a passenger my passenger airbag may not deploy because of the sensor issue. it has been checked for faulty wiring etc all have come up negative.

i purchased a brand new 2007 pontiac g6 in 2008. the passenger side airbag light is always on. i had to replace the brake pads at 20,000 miles and the brakes are still giving me problems. when i turn the steering wheel, the car makes a crackling, loud sound. the headlight plugger had to be replaced due to them being burned out. i am very unhappy with this car. i am a single mother and i am sorry i did not research this car beforehand. i would not recommend this car to anyone. i took the car to the dealer and the price they will charge to fix everything is too expensive for me. *kb

STEERING

my power steering began to go out. at first it would just go out every three to four days and then it began to go out three to four times each time i drove it. it would go out when i was turning on the road while driving. i would have to put on my emergency blinkers, turn off my car, re-start it, and begin to drive again until it would go out again and i would have to do it all over again. it got to the point where i felt unsafe to drive my car so i had to get it fixed. i took it to the dealership and it cost me over six hundred dollars to fix the steering motor. it took the dealership over a week and a half to fix the problem when they said it would only take about three hours to put the new part in. i was without a car for that whole time and was also left to pay the large payment. gm did not offer much customer assistance in helping me to fix the problem and my warranty for the motor i had to purchase is only for 12,000 miles or one year. i am fearful that the part will go out again and i will have to pay yet another $600. there was a recall on the 2006 model of my car, and, although my car was made in july of 2006, gm refused to put my car on recall because they said that it was considered a 2006. i find this unfair and wrong. this is a major problem that could cause much harm. gm should be responsible for fixing the problem and also for helping out those people who had to fix the problem on their own. it is scary to have your power steering go out and the chance of getting into an accident because of it is a scary thought also.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

i have had my 2007 pontiac g6 gt for about 3 years and i have had numerous problems with it. the main safety concern i have is my brake lights will intermittently flicker on and off while i am driving it whether i press in the brakes or now. this causes the cruise control not to work as well as the cruise control is activated when you press the brake pedal in. i have had the brake pedal switch replaced but that only ceased the problem for a few days. i have had people pull over because they think i'm braking for a deer when i'm not. i have almost been in numerous accident especially in winter when the roads are bad and my brake lights will stay on causing the driver behind me to brake when there is now need to. thank god i don't have children because this is a huge electrical malfunction and safety hazard. the other main problem i have is my panoramic roof no longer works. it will open about a half an inch and will get stuck. i bought this car for that main feature and it was very expensive with a panoramic roof. my warranty will not cover any of these expenses because i have 40,000 miles on my car. i am very disappointed as i believe pontiac should have to pay for a malfunction such as these two. much roof also makes a lot of noise in which i didn't realize because now it is closed all the time and was usually open before this. i will never buy a pontiac vehicle again. just because they don't make them doesn't mean they should let people drive unsafe and dangerous vehicles on the road.

cruise control was active-on; windshield wiper was on 'fast pulse'; rain was moderate to heavy; road was hilly; event: when the cruise needed to decide to shift gears going up a hill the wipers stopped long enough for the rain to obscure all vision. the stopping was repeatable by setting up similar settings when the rain/road conditions allowed. this condition even occurred at 35 mph, with cruise on, with wiper fast pulse in light rain, again obscuring forward vision, on a much less hilly terrain. discussions with gm at the time resulted in the statement that because gm or the dealer could not 'observe' the 'stoppage' that 'it did not occur.' several attempts were made to get the information to the appropriate internal gm group but none responded. since the condition occurred both in hilly/mountain terrain and in hilly city terrain it seems that it would be an important issue to resolve -- due to the lack of forward vision at the time of occurrence.

STEERING

the steering on my car first started acting up so i took it to the dealership and they took forever to look at it. finally they said that they were not exactly sure but that the instructions said to first fix the steering motor and then the problem should be resolved with just that. so i had the steering motor replaced on my car, which cost over $600 dollars to fix even though they claimed they were going to try to help me get a good deal. i had the motor fixed and within a week and a half or so the power steering was going out again. it would go out when i was driving and would not come back on when i would turn off and restart the car. it was very scary and dangerous to drive like that. it would go out at any given second and on turns. i took my car back to the dealership again and asked them to replace the motor again since it was under warranty but they would not do that because they said that i needed a steering column now. i had to have the steering column replaced because a sensor in the column had went out and this cost me more money. i was very upset because that could have been the problem all along and i could have had that fixed in the beginning and not risked my safety with driving around with a car that?s steering goes out. also i could have saved money. i spent over $900 to get all of the steering replaced. i am a college student and i do not have money like that to be spending and the dealership should have gotten me a better deal like they made it sound like they were going to do. i bought my pontiac because i needed a good, reliable car but the steering problem is a dangerous and costly one. the 2006 model of my car was recalled but they refused to take mine as a recall even though it was technically built in 2006. this is a serious problem and i would hope pontiac gm would help out their customers with this problem.

STEERING

the vehicle's rubber power steering return hose is resting against the underside of the exhaust pipe. there is a reflectant covered fabric as a radiant barrier, but i suspect is not designed to prevent heat (from right after the pre-catalytic converter) from seeping through due to conduction. i have made an inspection through my fingers as there is no way of seeing the damage until the hose is removed. the reflective surface material is clearly off of the rest of the material and it feels to be completely burned through. the loss of power steering fluid could have been catastrophic for two reasons. first was the virtual loss of steering (luckily my wife was not driving at a high rate of speed). second, that power steering fluid could have caused a vehicle fire had it hit a hot exhaust instead of the one that was barely warm after less than 1/2 mile of driving. just the same, it created a lot of smoke convincing my wife that her car was either on fire or about to be. i have pictures of the hose routing and i'll be making repairs this week-end. please let me know if i can be of assistance in this matter. it is hard for me to fathom that the vehicle was designed to have this rubber hose containing a flammable fluid to rest against a hot exhaust pipe. this is either a design defect or somebody forgot to ensure clearance during assembly. gm seemed unconcerned when i phoned them this evening. ....updated 06/28/13 *bf updated 07/2/2013 *js

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

my passenger side low beams were burning out, i took my vehicle to the dealer in dec (2010), one year later, it's back. i noticed the connection was completely shorted and burnt. prob won't last much longer. this past aug (2011) my fuel pump started leaking fuel, it was the assembly which had a hairline fracture which was unrepairable, had to replace the complete assembly for $350. for the last couple years my steering does a popping sound and feel when i make slow sharp turns (as in u-turns). the dealer temporary fixed it once, but it returned before i could even forget about it. their solution was greasing the steering joint. my ac/heating fan was making a ticking sound while it was on a couple years back (around nov 2009), the dealer fixed the ticking but it returned last year. though it's not as loud or annoying as before i've learned to tune it out, not too fun for my passengers though.

i was turning my 07 pontiac g6 going approximately 10-15 mph and the whole steering system locked up, thankfully no one was in the other lane while turning since my turn now had to be wide. i also noticed that the display said "power steering", i pulled car over to the side and turned hazard lights on. i made a phone call to my brother who told me to try to get to the nearest parking lot, i was extremely upset at this time as even driving straight to the nearest lot was hard for me to control at a low speed. i made it and physically could not turn car into a spot. my brother came to pick me up. the car was turned off for about a half hour, when he restarted the car the power steering seemed to work again, as i was afraid to drive home, he drove it home for me which was about a half hour away. turning to the right feels like it wants to give out again. i contacted gm pontiac who said to take it to the dealer to have inspected. today i took in and waiting for a call back from the service center. i have read multiple complaints regarding same issue and i am truly afraid to drive car as this is bound to happen again, i have 3 children that i will not put in car now until something is done. gm needs to take responsibility for the defective product that they made. as of right now they are telling me no recall on this year and model. service person at the dealer said some vin# are included in the other model/year recalls he would have to check mine. something needs to be done before lives are lost due to this. i paid my car off upfront when i purchased it and do not feel the need to pay for it again. anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

a hairline crack developed in the plastic elbow connecting the integral fuel pump/gas tank fuel lines to the engine. this elbow connects a fuel line which is pressurized both with the vehicle operating (about 60 psi) and after the car has been turned off as the fuel system bleeds this operating pressure. the pressure forcibly ejects highly flammable gasoline liquid and vapor into the area immediately above extremely hot exhaust pipes. when garaged, these vapors completely fill the structure which houses a gas water heater and furnace with running pilot lights. no vehicle annunciation (e.g., check engine light), performance degradation (e.g., hard starts), or visible indicators alert the owner to this potentially catastrophic condition. the fuel smell is initially mistaken for normal exhaust fumes after parked until the crack enlarges causing the gas smell to become intolerable. the potential exists for death and destruction of both the vehicle and garage and home in which it is kept because of the insidious nature of this problem.

on the above date and time i was driving and a police officer pulled me over and told me that my brakes were coming on when i was driving but when i was stopping they went off i have brought it into the dealer to be fixed several times and they are not fixing it they are calibrating the brakes and putting a bandaid on it lasts for about 3 weeks then right back to the way it was i have called pontiac and they just keep telling us to bring it in i went online and there have been numerous complaints on this car i understand they are from 2005-07 that the issues are occurring according to the information i read on the problem. here is the nhtsa action number for you to reference with pe08054. they have recalled the 05's but the problem still exists in their later models. it has not been recalled and believe this issue should be addressed they know its a malfunction and they should be responsible instead of nickeling and dimming their customers just to not get the problem solved. do we really have to wait till someone gets killed in order to address the problem? i appreciate your time [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6).

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

car's key felt stuck one day and made the card do a "hard" start where the ignition didn't kick over right away. noticed right after ignition problem there was a strong smell of gas once car was shut off. smell continued to just get stronger and stronger over the course of a week. there is now an intoxicating smell of gas fumes that surround the car when parked. cannot park in garage any longer in fear that the fumes will ignite with our gas water heater which is also housed in the garage. three year old daughter feels light headed and nauseated when getting in the car now, and can no longer use it although it is our only vehicle. it goes into the dealership tomorrow despite not having any warranty. although it has not been confirmed yet, i am sure it is the same problem others are having with the cracked piece above the gas tank. i cannot believe that this has not been a recall yet, because this is a serious matter. i would imagine it is just a matter of time before someone's g6 ignites and causes a huge fire and explosion!

tl* the contact owns a 2007 pontiac g6. the contact stated that she noticed orange and red liquid on the floor of her garage. the vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnose that a gasket attached to the water pump had come in contact with a dex-cool anti-freeze and caused a deterioration of the gasket and the metal. as a result, the water pump had to be replaced. the manufacturer was made aware of the failure who did not offer any assistance. the failure and current mileage was 70,000.

STEERING

when leaving work one night i put the car in gear and heard a warning bell. i noticed that the words power steering lit up on my radio console. i figured it was low on fluid and decided to check it when i got home. during the 15 minute drive to my house the warning light came on several more times each time i was coming to a stop and/ or turning. once home i found that there was no way for me to fill or even check the fluid levels. it has gotten progressively worse and the power steering has begun to fail. i had the car checked out at a dealership( as instructed in the owners manual) but they were unable to pull a code nor had they ever heard of this problem. this car is generally driven by my wife and this issue needs to be addressed.

on multiple occasions the brake lights will illuminate when the brake is not being depressed, when this happens, the cruise control will disengage. if i then apply the brakes, the brake lights will go off and stay off, even if i come to a complete stop. also, while in motion, if this problem happens, i can tap the brakes and the lights will go off....i can then set the cruise control again, and it will work for a few seconds until the brake lights come on again. other motorists have told me my brake lights stay on while i'm in motion, and go off when i stop. this is a big safety concern, and someone's going to be injured. gm recalled 2005-2006 models for this same issue, but didn't extend it to 2007 models. however, i've read numerous accounts of this issue happening in 2007 models. can't something please be done before someone is hurt? i'm bringing it in as i'm afraid to keep driving it this way, and will have to pay to have them fix it, but i've heard the fix is only temporary, and i'll have to bring it back many times.

why was the 2007 g6 not included in the new recall by gm for several models including the 2007 pontiac g5 for a serious fuel leak problem? the g6 has the same fuel tank and line that is cracking in the vehicles recalled and our g6 smells of gasoline so bad we cannot park it in the garage and fuel constantly is dripping from the tank. several forums list this problem and numerous complaints with the g6 year 2007 and up. here is just one: http://www.g6ownersclub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12371 just do a search for "forum g6 gas tank leak" and you will find more complaints. local dealer wants over $2000 to replace the tank, pump and lines and we read that it does not cure the problem when others have had this work performed. (dealer installs the same plastic line that will crack in the heat and they refuse to fix just the line, stating the entire tank must be replaced) just what are we to do when gm does not fix a know dangerous problem? and just why did this recall not include the g6? and why does our fabulous government who bailed out gm not make them fix know defects?

my son noticed a smell of gas coming from his car. when i went out to look at it i could smell it also. it seemed to be coming from the rear of the car but i could not see anything and it seemed to dissipate as time went on that evening. i just assumed it came from the filler tube somehow maybe after a turn. the next day when he got home from work i was in the driveway when he pulled in and the smell was very strong and still seemed to be coming from the rear area of the car. we jacked both sides of the rear up and that?s when we saw gas run out of the protective plate that surrounds the bottom of the gas tank. further inspection revealed the leak was coming from a plastic elbow that comes out of the fuel pump that feeds gas to the engine. you could also see where the fuel had been spraying on the muffler which is located behind the gas tank assembly. this very easily could a serious fire if we had not located this as quickly as we did. i am to understand that this is the same fuel pump design as the 2007 g5 that has the exact same problem with that plastic elbow cracking and spraying fuel. this should be an immediate safety recall before someone gets hurt.

there is a fuel leak that is coming from the tank and flows onto the rear exhaust system. after removal of the tank, after gm care said there was nothing that they could do, out of warranty. i found out that it migh be leaking from the oring between the fuel pump and tank. while waiting for the parts to arrive later this week (oring and locking cam), i did some research and seen numerous post and a high failure rate of a plastic gas that supplies fuel to the engine, so i am assuming that this could be culprit and a dangerous and expensive problem since to replace this you have to replace the complete fuel pump assembly. this needs to be addressed to gm as a possible fire hazard and a recall in place to save lives!!

in june of 2012, the vehicle did not start properly, it had a long crank. then i started noticing a fuel smell in my garage after the vehicle was parked. the odor got worse and was apparent when just sitting. i had the vehicle inspected, due the strong odor. the gas tank was dropped and it was determined the plastic part on the fuel pump was cracked. the exact replacement part was unavailble at this time; due to a problem with the part. so the dealership sold my mechanic a more expensive pump, one that included repair for the odometer. at least that is what was explained to me.the total cost was $988.88. i have the cracked fuel pump in my garage. i have contacted gm to no avail.

POWER TRAIN

i was on my way home when i continued to pull up into my driveway and tried to put my 2007 pontiac g6 into park, but it would not park. i could continuously move the gear shift back and forth repeatedly and none of the movement would register with the car. my car was stuck in drive. when my car said it was in park on my gear shift, it was still in drive with the computer. if i took my foot of the brake, since i am on a hill, my car rolled backwards. i therefore was forced to use my emergency brake and put bricks behind my tires to keep my car from rolling backwards down my driveway. the next morning i had tried again to see what the issue was and my car would not start. i decided to call my car dealership and had organized to have it towed there. when the tow truck driver arrived, i explained my issue and he immediately knew what was wrong; my car was stuck in drive and you cannot start a vehicle when it is in drive. under my hood, where my car is in control of going from drive-to-neutral-to-reverse etc. was disconnected and broken. my car was taken to the dealership where i had explained my issue once more and they took it in and fixed the issue over the course of a few days. i have done many hours of research and discovered this has happened numerous times in various years of this make and model. the shift cable was broken for no reason.

STEERING

i have been having powers steering problems with my car for months. power steering light comes on, the wheel jerks making it hard to control sometimes. at higher speeds it seemed to be worse, and the steering wheel will vibrate. i did bring it to a dealer that told me there was extended warranty coverage on 2005 and 2006 g6 models , but not 2007. i would be responsible for repairs. yesterday i was in a car accident and i believe the steering problem played a role. the wheel was jerking, prior to the accident. we were driving on an interstate traveling at a faster speed. i don't know how i ended up bouncing off the back tire of a semi truck in the lane next to me, but i was fighting the car to gain control of the vehicle again. not only with all the "normal" physical forces, but the car still wanted to go its own way. over compensating and fishtailing the whole way. thankfully we are all alive, the car probably will be a complete loss.

AIR BAGS

a service airbag message and the airbag light comes on intermittently. sometimes it stays on for 3-7 days and sometimes it doesn't turn on for over 30 days. i took the vehicle to a pontiac/gm dealer and the light was not on at the time and they could not test it. i took it back to the same dealer about 6-9 months later and they stated that the sensor below the front-passenger seat needed to be replaced. according to them, the sensor and seat cushion comes as a one unit and both needed replacement. the estimated cost of parts and labor was about $1500. after searching online for possible solutions, i realized that there are many complaints from other owners having the same issue. i think that gm should consider recalling all vehicles with this issue, especially when it starts happening at a relatively early stage or at low mileage.

STEERING

hearing a popping noise everytime i turn left....getting worse....took to get new tires and brakes and was told i needed to take to pontiac to find out what the noise was...(.had it in at pontiac in 2008 for steering)...i paid $95 labor for them to tell me that the steering gear was faulty...my car has low mileage,it is well maintained and the steering gear is faulty..i called pontiac customer service about this and was told that there was no recall on the steering and i was responsible for the repair...in my search for more information on this i found that i am not alone and that there seems to be a lot of us g6 owners out there that have problems with the steering .....is this not a safety hazard......from what i have read i would say so....i feel its time to demand a recall for steering issues with the g6, there is a great chance they will lock up or you may loss you steering all together from what i have read from other complaints.....when i asked the mechanic at pontiac if it was safe to drive his answerer was ...."i don't know".....what an answer to give to some that is about to pull out of your lot.....really

STEERING

power steering locks up. locks up no matter what speed you are going. found that they replaced this for the 05,06, 08 years but not 07? really? apparently it is still a dangerous issue that has not been resolved by pontiac. i viewed several complaints and pontiac does not accept responsibility for the 2007. not sure how they are getting away with this. this is very dangerous and will go out at any given moment. very expensive to replace. must replace or don't drive. i have driven other makes of cars before and they have repaired them if there was a recall. this is my first new pontiac that they refuse to recall. next new car will not be pontiac. spread the word, don't buy a used pontiac g6. mine was brand new when i bought it.

one day, without any incident, the brake lights started acting up. when not applying brake, brake lights shine. when i hit the brake, the brake lights turn off. i have had the brake switch replaced and have had dielectric grease put on conductors. the problem went away for a few months and now is back to acting up. i have read many other posts and blogs about said problem and i cannot believe that gm and the nhtsa have not done something for models newer than the 2005 g6. someone is going to get killed because of this faulty system. i want these problems fixed before someone gets seriously hurt because of the company's negligence.

STRUCTURE

we bought this convertible pontiac 2007 g6 almost a year ago & had trouble with the top not working. it has been worked on 5 times since we've had it & right now still not working. if you try to put it down it will get stuck in mid-air & may set there for 12 hours before it goes down & it will say top is not secure so you can't drive it like that. place where we got it had it about 2 months ago & said they're waiting for a part that is ordered but we talked to the pontiac dealership this morning & they said that part is no longer being made & they told the guy we the car from if he could find the part & they start fixing it & something else is wrong they wouldn't be able to fix this car. so basically we have been paying for the car for 1 year now - haven't been able to use the top - my husband has missed work because the top was suppose to be fixed he'd try to put it down & it gets stuck in mid-air & you can't put it down when it does that it sets for about 12 hours before it will close on it's own. we can't drive it when is says top is not secure because it may blow off & then sometimes the trunk gets stuck & you can't open that and get anything our of it. i am just at a loss here we're paying for something that is not safe to drive & if you do luck out and get the top down after it's been worked on you just have to pray that it goes back up securely. and how can they stop making a part for a car that is only a 2007 & convertible top. we are just frustrated with this whole situation and still have to finish paying for this car or it goes against us. we are at a loss for what to do about this.

POWER TRAIN

my son was driving his 2007 pontiac g6 gtp on a highway (55 mph speed limit) and suddenly the car downshifted and started shaking. it started to slow down and he finally got to our hometown.... the car downshifted again, and went down to 10 mph before he finally coasted into our driveway. he could not get it up to speed at all and had to go as fast as the transmission would allow him in order to get home and get the car off the road. this problem - a broken 3,5,r clutch wave plate - has been identified via gm service bulletin 09-07-30-012 and i am getting the runaround from gm on them fixing it, all because it's over 100,000 miles. had this problem occurred on the interstate (which he was on just prior to this incident), he could have been rear-ended or even killed from the sudden drop in speed since the speed limit on the interstate in iowa is 70 mph). this problem is well known, yet gm won't acknowledge it since the cost to repair is phenomenal. gm needs to be held responsible for this faulty clutch wave plate, which is also a problem in acadias, buick enclaves and saturn outlooks from 2007 - 2009. i'm sure this repair will be very costly, but more importantly - my son could have been killed had he not been where he was when it broke.

while driving down the road i came to a stop when traffic ahead of me began to slow down. i was at a dead stop when a car came sliding past me in the gravel to the right of me. when we got to the stop sign the driver of that vehicle informed me that my brake lights were inoperative. i found this hard to believe considering i had just purchased the vehicle a month prior. about a week later i had a car honk at me and yell over to me that i had no brake lights when coming to a stop. when you start the car, you can walk around the back of the car and see that the brake lights are on, with nobody even in the car. i have followed my girlfriend while she was driving the car and they function the exact opposite way that they should, the brake lights are on the whole time you are driving and when coming to a stop the lights go out completely and do not return on until you begin accelerating again. i have had the brake pedal position sensor replaced, calibrated and it did cure the problem for a month or so, then the problem returned. next i had the "fix" for the bcm connector performed, the dielectric grease did nothing. so now the problem remains, everyday people ride right on my bumper and i fear that an accident can come of this, and gm needs to find a fix for this and recall these vehicles asap.

while driving down the road i came to a stop when traffic ahead of me began to slow down. i was at a dead stop when a car came sliding past me in the gravel to the right of me. when we got to the stop sign the driver of that vehicle informed me that my brake lights were inoperative. i found this hard to believe considering i had just purchased the vehicle a month prior. about a week later i had a car honk at me and yell over to me that i had no brake lights when coming to a stop. when you start the car, you can walk around the back of the car and see that the brake lights are on, with nobody even in the car. i have followed my girlfriend while she was driving the car and they function the exact opposite way that they should, the brake lights are on the whole time you are driving and when coming to a stop the lights go out completely and do not return on until you begin accelerating again. i have had the brake pedal position sensor replaced, calibrated and it did cure the problem for a month or so, then the problem returned. next i had the "fix" for the bcm connector performed, the dielectric grease did nothing. so now the problem remains, everyday people ride right on my bumper and i fear that an accident can come of this, and gm needs to find a fix for this and recall these vehicles asap.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

back in june 2012 i noticed the low beam headlight on the right was out so i took it into the local shop for repair. the shop replaced both bulbs. approximately four to five months later i noticed the same bulb was out again and took the same actions. i replaced the bulb. around february 2013 i noticed the bulb was working intermittently and flickering on and off. the light would not come on during normal operation so i would pop the headlight casing. at that point the light would come on but after driving a few miles i noticed the light was off again! at this point i have just started driving with my high beams just to ensure i was able to see because i live in a rural area. i recently received two traffic citations for using the high beams and driving with faulty equipment. i have read several online posts that gave the impression that others are experiencing similar problems with the low beams on their g6 vehicles. is there some sort of recall on these bulbs or the wiring that the bulbs stream into? if yes, please, please advise. i don't want to have to keep changing these bulbs every six months and having to pay labor. i also don't want to run the risk of getting citations just because i have to use the high beams to compensate because of the faulty standard low beams.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

the front electrical port was being used by an mp3 player fm transmitter while the vehicle was off. the fm transmitter turned off, and after the car was left alone for a few minutes, smoke was coming out from the vehicle and it smelled of burnt plastic. fm transmitter was removed and the negative battery cable was disconnected. the source of smoke was the rear trunk fuse block which had melted around the site of the front electric port fuse. once smoke cleared, negative cable was reattached. after a couple minutes of checking car electrical from drivers seat, the fuse block was checked and a small fire had started. this was quickly put out and negative cable to battery disconnected again. any remaining metal bits from electric port fuse were removed and once the negative cable was again reattached, no more smoke appeared. however, park lamps would not turn off, car did not know trunk was closed, the left rear turn signal did not work (even though it lit up when park lamps were left on). other random buttons on driver control panel did not work (rear defrost, but fuse was fine).

our elec power steering is going. in checking the internet i note that this is a common problem. i note in canada where cars are manufactured differently than here in the usa they have recalled the pont g6 for this exact problem. i would suggest you look at there data and investigate the same. canada's notice is below: a grand total of 67,414 sedans are being recalled by gm including the chevrolet malibu and malibu maxx (2005, 2006, 2008), pontiac g6 (2005, 2006, 2008), and saturn aura (2008). the electric power steering may experience a sudden loss of steering assist that could occur at any time while driving. a message would be displayed on the driver information centre and a chime would sound to inform the driver. steering control can be maintained, as the vehicle will revert to a manual steering mode, but requires greater driver effort at low speeds. this increases the risk of a collision. owners are advised to take their vehicle to a gm dealer to receive a special extended warranty coverage for a period of 10 years/240,000 km from the date the vehicle was originally put in service. for 2005 and 2006 models, dealers will replace the steering column. for 2008 models, they will replace the power steering motor control module.

advised by a fellow motorist that i was "riding my brakes" around the end of 2010 while driving on interstate 77 through very hilly terrain. not understanding what he meant as i was clearly not riding my brakes in the normal sense but maybe had tapped them once or twice to slow down going down hill, i dismissed this and figured he was angry. end of 2011/early 2012 advised by a friend that my brake lights were always on while she followed me and we spoke on the phone. i discovered through this conversation that they would go off when i actually pressed the brake. took this to a certified gm mechanic who could not find anything wrong with the brakes. after some research, i advised them of the service bulletin which had been issued for the 2006 model year of my vehicle that indicated this same problem and showed a fix for it. they fixed it according to that bulletin and it seemed to work at the time. july 2013, discovered while driving at night on a side road (could see the street signs illuminate behind me as i passed them) that once again the brake lights were working in reverse, they were on when i was driving and would go off when i brake. took it back to the same gm mechanic who had temporarily fixed it the first time. they replaced the brake pedal position sensor as they found that to be reading incorrectly at times and released the car back to me advising that it was working at that time. the day after i took it to the mechanic, i had a friend followed me to confirm that it was fixed. i was advised by my friend while again talking on the phone to him that this did not fix the issue as i would tell him when i was braking and he would tell me what he saw. i am currently still driving with my brakes working in reverse. taking it back to the same gm mechanic to see if they can fix this for good.

while driving at an estimated 45 mph the steering wheel preceded to shake violently from left to right and we immediately pulled to side of road to inspect the front wheels to make sure there was nothing wrong. tried to take off and drive again and the vehicle continued to shake violently therefore pulled over again and called a tow truck. paid $100.00 to have it towed. took it to the dealership we purchased it from and they proceeded to tell us that there were service bulletins on this matter with the car. they proceeded to tell us that our car was not covered because it had the wrong vin number under warranty. upon further investigation said that basically it was going to be our problem and we would have to pay for it to get fixed even though there are service bulletins issued for the same problem. i would like to know why they charged me $40 to check it out, plus quoted us a price of over $800 to fix the problem and plus the towing problem that gm has produced dangerous situations with there product and will not stand behind there product. this is definitely something that needs to be checked on considering the number of complaints that have been lodged about the same thing happening to other people while driving. i would like a response as to how they are able to get away with this problem and will fix some cars with the problem and not other ones. thank you.

approx. 2+ yrs ago i noticed that wherein pressing on the gas from a dead stop at a light resulted in nothing but high engine revs. after asecond or two the transmission would engage causing the occupants inside to be severely thrown back in their seats. happens intermittently at any temp and any driving condition. sometimes it happens a couple of times a day,sometimes it doesn't happen for a couple weeks. took car in and was told there was no error codes that they couldn't help me unless they could replicate it themselves. been a few times that i pulled into oncoming traffic into a parking lot or street and had the trans. hesitate. not the only one with this problem. not sure what the exact issue is but i'm not shelling out $4000 for a new trans. on a car that only has 42,000 miles on it. don't feel safe driving this car sometimes. especially when it happens on wet or icy roads as the traction control engages and the wheels just spin leaving me stuck in traffic until they find purchase enough to get going. if this vehicle had 95,000-100,000 on the odometer i would get a new trans. but as i stated before with such low miles it shouldn't be happening. gm needs to be held accountable for this. also have the brake lights that stay on then turn off when the pedal gets pressed. fixed that 4 times and it still happens. don't know if these are related but if its something electrical it could be. please help me get this rectified

loud constant clunking noise two weeks prior to incident pulling out of my garage and vehicle would not turn left or right no matter what,after turning ignition off and on numerous times i finally was able to get vehicle back in garage after doing some research on these cars they are known for having power steering and suspension problems also these vehicles have been in numerous auto crashes because of this! this vehicle also only has 70,000 miles on it there is no recall on this vehicle whatsoever,why is that?because obviously someone at gm dropped the ball!!! i am in the military and i am by no means financially able to continue to dump monies on a vehicle that gm should repair at no costs that has safety issues!!! *js

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

i have been notified during my most recent oil change that there is a fuel leak on my 2007 pontiac g6. the mechanic stated he has seen several gm vehicles including other g6's with this same issue this summer. the 2007 pontiac g5 was recently recalled due to this exact same issue. gm put me and my family in danger by not including the g6 in their recall. the fuel pump on this vehicle needs to be recalled before people start getting killed in fires caused by this faulty fuel pump. the heat in the state i live in (arizona) causes cracks to form in the plastic on the fuel pump causing a fuel leak. this is the exact same problem addressed in gm's recall campaign number 12190 which is an expansion of recall 09v-419 (nhtsa campaign id number: 12v459000). 5 other 2007 gm models have been recalled for this fire hazard. it is time that the recall is once again expanded to include all gm models with this fuel pump problem. this is an extremely dangerous situation because of the fuel leaks close proximity to extremely hot exhaust parts. it is only a matter of time before these fuel pumps start catching fire and killing innocent people who don't know there is a fuel leak. please investigate this problem and force gm to stop dragging their feet in this matter before they kill innocent people.

when i first purchased my 2007 pontiac g6 i had to have the steering shaft replaced, now just after 6 months my power steering light came on and made it difficult for me to turn. when i stop at the red light while waiting for the light to change my steering wheel moves from left to right on its on and once i press the gas to move forward it gets difficult. i'm having such a hard time trying to drive, i really hate to drive just knowing the problem i have and at any moment the steering wheel will eventually give out. i went to the dealership was told the cost for repairs would cost at least 680.00 to get the problem fixed. the repairman stated he knows a lot of people that continue to drive with this problem but is that really helping me when i know i could have an accident at anytime, at this point i don't really know what to do. please help i really love my g6 but there really needs to be something done about the steering problem. the care was purchased at sunrise pontiac here in memphis on covington pike.

i was driving to work, and while merging, the power steering alarm came on and the power steering stopped working. i was able to get to the side of the road without causing an accident. i turned the car off, and back on. everything seemed to be working again at that point. less than one mile later, the same issue occurred. there was not really a shoulder to pull over to and i ended up in someone's driveway to avoid and accident, as this was a very well traveled route. luckily, there were no accidents involved and that my daughter was not in the car with me. they ended up replacing the whole steering assembly. it had been giving me the warnings in the morning, which we thought was due to the cold. we didn't realize at the time that the power steering was electrically controlled. i could not imagine what would of happened if i was in the city and didn't have the room to pull over, nor the speed to do it.

while driving through a tunnel which comes up to a sharp bend a little after exiting at about 45 miles per hour i felt like i was not in control of my car as it felt as if it was locking up and moving in its own direction. so i hit the brakes (just got brakes done) to slow down a bit but it didn't seem to brake quick enough for me to feel safe. so before coming to the bend there is another exit to go into town that i took to drive at a slower speed. while taking that way home i had lights to stop at and as i accelerate it was hesitant at times to pick up. lastly every time i start up the car there is a ticking noise that is consistent which i still don't know what it is from. the brakes may be an issue with who did my brakes but the power steering is an issue and when i waited until today to check the fluid i could not locate so i went online to find out where it was and come to find out i may have an electrical one and found numerous reports regarding power steering issues. my car does not feel safe to me and it is now my only transportation to work.

since last year, let's say in spring, i had problems shifting out of park. doesn't do it every time. later i noticed that my breaklights are always illuminated. will not change if the break is pushed. but if i push hard enough on them they turn off all together. when pressed on the break again they do not light up at all. so after a few seconds the lights all come back on when i am not pressing on the break. back to the beginning. also my cruise contol turns off when i'm using it. sometimes my lights go in and out of climate controls. now i called gm about the recall on my make/model/year and gave her my vin number. she said i am not currently included on the recall. how is that possible? i need this fixed before i get a ticket or get into an accident!

on jan 21, 2014 the power steering light and beep went off and the power steering would not work. i could turn the car off, turn the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key back on and the problem was fixed - for a while. this technique no longer works. two years ago the steering went out sproradically for about 2 months-i could turn the car off and on again and the steering would work. we checked into getting it fixed but were told it was not on the recall list (why not??). for some reaon,back then, the problem just stopped happening and the steering was fine again until this past january. i'm not sure what is triggering this problem but i do know that it is going to cost quite a bit of money to fix. the 2007 pontiac g6 needs to be added to the already long list of recalls for this problem.

i have a 2007 pontiac g6 sedan. it has had several electrical issues in the past but they are getting worse. the delay power to the lights and radio do not seem to function properly. the radio is to remain on until the driver door is opened. well it now does not shut off at times. sometimes it will "time out" after the 10 minutes if the ignition is turned off but once i turned off the car, locked the doors and assumed it would time out. the next morning i got in the car and the radio was still playing and the interior dome lights were on. i was amazed the battery wasn't dead. this has been happening more often is is quite an annoyance to make sure the power is off when exiting the vehicle. sometimes is requires me to open and shut the door several times to get the delay to cut off.

POWER TRAIN

my 2007 pontiac g6 was no longer able to shift between gears as i attempted to park. once the shifter was moved to the park position and my foot released the brake, the car continued to roll. upon inspection, it became known that the shifter cable linkage was fractured. i found there was an open recall by gm on pontiac g6 vehicles manufactured from may 26, 2004 to september 28,2007 (model year 2005-2008 vehicles). the recall (recall 14152) contains the wording "if the transmission shift cable fractures while the vehicle is being driven, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash". this is the exact symptom which struck my vehicle. upon contacting gm about this recall, i was told the vin number of my vehicle isn't included in their predetermined lot of cars they believe to be affected. the fact that my vehicle exhibits the exact issue that gm openly admits to be a problem for vehicles they produced within the year range mine was manufactured, should be cause enough for them to accept responsibility for this issue. this issue is a design flaw which is agitated by the choice of materials used in this specific force application. this isn't a problem that can be isolated to certain vehicles based of the assembly process of select plants. the general engineering design approved and released by gm, or their supplier, was flawed. i find it unacceptable that i am forced to pay out of pocket for a fix relating to a design flaw that gm is trying to selectively downplay. an installation issue could be understandably focused on a specific assembly plant, but a component failure by breakage or fracturing is an obvious mis-application of a poor design.

purchased the vehicle with under 15k miles approx early to mid 2008. has been very difficult to steer since a couple months after purchasing. was told by a mechanic at an inspection there is something wrong in the steering column. acts as if it does not have power steering and it sometimes takes several attempts to make a turn into a parking stall. power steering and all other related equipment tested fine. recent recall involving this issue included cars before and after mine. i also reported electronic problems and messages which i was just notified about in recall 13036 this week "after" complaining of a problem for several years my vehicle has the identical problems as those with the steering column issue previously recalled. i am in hopes you will be revisiting the steering column issue and the possibility that it may involve additional vehicles. it is practically impossible to steer at times and happens sporadically without notice. car just hit 80,000 so wear and tear/excessive driving is not an issue. has happened as low as 5 mph and as high as 65 mph.

airbag lamp illuminates while vehicle is in operation. the driver information center displays an airbag malfunction message and has a warning chime. during this time the system is identifying that the airbag system is not operating. the issues seems to be related to the sensor in the front passenger seat. if the vehicle is shut off the error message and indicator lamp go away. this has been happening more frequently over the last year. in addition the driver information center sometimes fails to turn on with the vehicle, making it hard to tell when there is an issue with the vehicle. during this time the information screen/radio are not illuminated. this is corrected by shutting off and restarting the vehicle.

i was on may way home from work, the check engine light came on and has remained on, and the transmission all of the sudden wouldn't go in any gear, i couldn't go over 20 mph, i had to pull over turn off the car wait turn it back on put it in drive, then if i would have to stop at a light or stop sign i would give it gas & it wouldn't go, again i had to turn the car off put it in park, then wait turn it on & put it in drive, also if i tried to put the car in reverse it would not go, this caused almost serveral times of me being "rear ended" even with my hazard lights on. i took it to my mechanic & he said it was caused from the recall (tramission recall) gm had it towed to a dealership, all they keep saying is there is no recall on my car. they said the government puts the ven #'s on for recall, so my question is, how does my car or any car get put on the recall list? when clearly my car is doing exactly what the recall states? gm states that the government is the one to put the "vin" on the recall list

STEERING

power steering hose was burned by exhaust pipe and sprayed the hot oil all over the exhaust manifold causing immediate noxious fumes in cabin and immediate loss of steering while wife driving to work. this hot steering fluid could have easily started a fire in the engine bay. thankfully my wife was able to pull over and exit the disable vehicle. had vehicel towed and repaired only for the issue to occure again within 30 days. yesterday, i had the vehicle repaired again after making a uturn and watching the white smoke engulf the cabin while fluid shot all over the engine exhaust. a three incidents were from burned hole through the heat shield and finally the black hose itself. this is obviously a horrible design issue and will eventually catch fire to a very hot south florida climate. this car is all stock and driven by mature adult female with meticulous service records.

"transmission shifter cable; brake lights, air bag passenger side, ignition" shifter intermittently hangs up when shifting. called dealership first was told they had no recall for that vin number, that nothing was on file. then when i read him the notice i received today he said that i was to wait until they had parts. i felt uncomfortable driving this car and asked for a loaner. i was told there was nothing he could do. (service dept.) called pontiac cs. 800 762 2737 i was told after explaining my problem that it was the dealerships discretion as to whether to provide a loaner. she talked to dealership, came back and then asked me how many mi was on car. 82k then she talked to dealer again and she comes back and tells me they need to check it and provide me with an estimate for repairs then i am to call the pontiac customer serv back with the estimate. ???????? so i am still driving a car that i don't feel comfortable with because they need an itemized bill of repair? is this the process for a recall? i definitely will not take it to "that dealership" for an inspection as now i do not trust them as their computers had no recalls or repair reports for my car at all.. recall no. 14152 transmission cable i was provided with a case no. and told to call pontiac cs back. p.s. so is this part of the ignition switch and brake lights intermittently coming on while driving down the road also i am confused?????
