You are in the Pontiac G6
What is this discussion about?
Pontiac G6, Coupe, Sedan

I've only owned my 2007 G6 GTP for a week, but I'm SUPER happy with it! I currently have a 1999 GMC Sierra pickup truck that has been our primary vehicle for 8 years with 220,000+ miles on it. I am one of those fortunate people that has NOT had tons of problems out of a GM vehicle. My brother and sister have 9995, 9994 respectively Chevrolet S-10's that they still drive, my dad has a 1996 Suburban that he drives, and my husband has a 1998 S-10 that's still going strong. I do NOT anticipate problems with the Pontiac, but we did purchase the extended bumper to bumper warranty due to the fact that we have the remote start and panoramic sunroof. Would NOT want to have to replace a bad starter in a year; bet that sucker's expensive.
AS FOR THE BATTERY: Spend the money and get RID of the AC Delco battery. Those things are crap. Out of all the GM vehicles, 3 of those AC Delco batteries have had broken cable posts, the battery has leaked, and gone bad. On our 2 trucks, we replaced the batteries with Everstart batteries and have had NO problems whatsoever. It will end up saving you money and time by just doing that yourself and not getting the runaround from your dealer.

Actually there is no difference in the starter. It is mostly software changes and a few safety items to assure nobody gets killed by a car running on its own. The roof is another story!!

the wipers while on wipe at different rates of speed w/out changing the wiper control to do so.
Are you saying that you noticed that the intermittent (delay) setting on wipers will vary the delay time without changing switch position? If so you might not know that the delay rate varies by vehicle speed

I have had the same problem before with my 2007 G6. Other than that, there were noise and squeak everywhere after driving it for about 2 weeks..so I decided trade it in and get a 2007 Accord V6 which provides me smooth and high quality ride...never buy Americans cars again!!!

I have a 2006 GTP 3.9L that is currently at the dealer for a low coolant warning that appeared on the DIC. The coolant tank is 3/4 empty when cold. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what was the cause?
I too have had brake problems. The car has 17,000 miles and so far the original rotors have been machined and then later replaced. Now the 2nd set has been machined. The dealer states this is the only car they have seen with this problem. As I can see, this is clearly not the case.
I would like to thank everyone for all the information posted on this forum.

For the record, squeaks and rattles occur in all types of cars, even import models. This is an issue that hasnt been totally solved by the auto industry by any means. I dont know that it's wise to swear off domestic cars based on a few squeks and rattles. It kind of seems like you wanted to get an Accord all along and just wanted an excuse. To trade a car in after a few weeks isnt really smart.

Lxs333 is right. You have one little problem and you want to go running away from the hometeam? Actually the domestic's are already caught up if not better in intial quality and long term quality compared to the import headquartered manufacturers. Plus the Accord isn't gonna come with the warranty like GM. Be wise, you're going to pay more up front for it, and you'll be paying more for it over time for sure.
#2215 of 2458 Steering is difficult when parallel parking.
Jan 29, 2007 (9:09 pm)
I have an 05 G6 GT, and have recently had problems with the steering wheel locking up when I am trying to maneuver in tight situations where short bursts of acceleration are required, like parking. I can move the wheel, but it is difficult. Car has 31000 miles on it, steering fluid is fine. Any ideas?
#2216 of 2458 PRICES OF GM EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR 06 GT COUPE
Feb 05, 2007 (9:22 am)
My son purchased a new G6 GT Coupe in June 2006. He's putting on miles at a brisk pace , so I thought he'd better investigate an extended GM warranty. I know that there other providers out there , but I'd prefer to stick with the GM plan .
I've been told that dealers make different deals for the same coverage. I plan to check out what our dealer in Flemington , NJ wants , but I'd appreciate first hearing what others paid for 4 years/ 60,000 miles and 5 years? 75,000 miles( with a $100 or zero deductable) Thanks in advance and please provide the dealer's name /state/ phone # of your dealer- Who knows, I may purchase it from them !
