I wish you well trying to get general motors to fix your problem. i have a 2006 g6 with the panoramic sunroof and it's been in the shop 7 times for a leak and major wind noise. the dealer says it can't be fixed and the noise is not normal. general motors says it's normal. i have invited them down to ride in my car and tell me if they still think it's normal. so far, they offer to let me pay 5700.00 for them to take my car back and leave me with no car. the other option they give me is to pay them a "usage fee of 1250.00" and they will exchange it for another car. Neither of those options sound like a good idea to me. I'm so frustrated i dont' know what to do. It affect the resale greatly. I first took it in when it had only 2500 miles on it, now it has 8000 and it gets worse each time they try to fix it.
General Motors doesn't care about their customer service at all. Search the internet and check the blogs to see what people are saying. I believe in strength in numbers. eventually if enough people scream loud enough they will stand behind their product or go out of business.
If anyone has suggest on how to handle this or would like to share their story with me so i can share them all with general motors , please email me at joanelmoreyahoo.com
#2160 of 2458 G6 Panoramc sunroof
Sep 17, 2006 (5:32 am)
I have a 2006 G6 with the panoramic sunroof. It has horrible wind noise. It's been in the shop 7 times now, 2 different shops, they have had to replace the head liner because the roof leaked. I finally filed with the BBB Autoline. General Motors says it's normal wind noise. I have invited them to please come ride in this and then tell me their opinion. They offered to trade my car if i pay them $1250.00 usage fee or they said i can pay the $2000.00 rebate (they kept the rebate to begin with) and the $3700.00 i was upside down in my trade. So for only $5700.00 i can give them back my car and have nothing to drive. Neither of these options are suitable to me. General Motors just kinda laughs and says "oh well, we think the roof is just noisy, they all are". I think one day we will see a class action law suit against these roofs because general motors has no fix or the problem.
Does anyone out ther know what i should do? I don't want to be out another dime. I just want them to replace my car with one that is not a lemon. If i file lemon law on the car ... the law says that general motors would be due a usage fee. I feel i pay this fee each month when i make my payment. I need help with this problem. Any suggestions at all would help.
If you have had this problem or another problem with general motors then please email me at joanelmoreyahoo.com and share your story with me. Thanks

i saw a new 2007 g6 blue gold crystal mettalic. it is one of the most beautiful colors i've seen in a while. if i replace my g6 it will be with one of this color. it's a light blue. sort of like a silvery blue but instead of having a silver glow in the sun this has a golden shine. i can't say enough about how pretty this is

I have a 2006 g6 v6 sedan. the other day i was headed to the store and all the instruments dropped. there wern't off they were dead. nothing worked, then i got low fuel lights(just filled it), check engine lights, no gauges at all. i stopped and turned off the car. started it again and it was still doing that. got to the store and went to leave and everything was fine. yesterday though it was a nice morning so i left the sunroof cracked. went to leave as it started to look like it was going to rain and sunroof didn't work as well as the gauges. its at the dealership now but i wanted to know if anyone has seen the same problem.

Hi. Are any of you G6 folks having issues with rattles and clunks from your front suspensions?
Us Malibu folks are having this problem, and I am curious if Pontiac is using the same components in the G6, and if you folks are having a similar problem.

The problem is the hub caps are rubbing on the wheels and creating the noise. This is a problem with the 4 cyl base model hub caps. I brought mine into the service center and they said that they could not hear the noise. Other people also were having trouble hearing the high pitched noise. So I was forced to fix the problem. It kind of seemed like the WB frog in the box. It would dance for me but no one else. So to fix the problem you need to take off your hubcaps and put some grease around the edge where the hub cap and wheel rub together. You will see wear marks on the wheel.

Yeah i had it at the dealership about a month ago. they said it was the hub caps rubbing against the wheel weights. Their brilliant idea was to put velcro around the edges of the hub caps. It worked for a couple weeks, but i think the velcro wore and the noise is back. Stupid dealership.

a few things you might try (they shouldn't cause any trouble but I can't guarantee they'll work );
try using a tire repair kit, with the thinnest rubber cut and glued on top of the wheel weight so it, not the weight, rubs against the hubcap.
or perhaps a thin coating of "goop" or silicon rubber over the tire weight (be sure to let the stuff dry first before putting the hubcap back on!)?

There are normally stand offs on GM wheel covers which hold the cap away from the wheel rim. If yours have those put some thin rubber pieces on the stand offs.

yes...strut hitting firewall in mine...4 times at dealership for them to figure it out...the area rep came and "adjusted the firewall away from strut housing/wall" sprayed in household body filler...noise went away for now...I figure when the "bodyfiller" wears down the noise will come back....good luck
