You better be glad that is all you have to deal with. I've had so many problems with my G6, every since I leased it back in 2006. The lease will end Jan 2010, and I will be so freaking glad. I'm trying to get out of it early, due to the fact there is serious mechanical problems happening. My gear shift keeps getting stuck in park and the dealership does not know what to do or how to fix it. Ain't;t that something. I will give by the end of the week, and if nothing, I will take it somewhere else. Good luck with your G6.

Well since it is under lease, why are they giving you such a hassle? Honestly, it can't be that hard to find the source. What is the point in having a lease, where you are covered under warranty, and can be secure in knowing you can take the car in if there is something wrong. As an owner, as long as you keep up on the service, than you are doing everything you are supposed to. I would take my service elswhere, as that would tick me off bad, if I had a lease and they don't fix the problem. Pontiac cannot expect you to keep a defective car, and as a consumer you do not deserve that treatment.I would like to say to the dealership, Its like "Duh" fix it, take the initiative to get someone who can fix, lol... that does not give them a good image, now does it. In fact, I would report it to Pontiac immediately, get a file started. You want this problem fixed. As to trading out early, good luck, honestly, I am going to trade out soon as a can, I will try about a year or so into the lease, when my payoff is a little lower. I actually tried yesterday to see what would happen if I traded it in now with having it only 5mths, and it was going to be a bit ugly. Honestly, I feel the contract is way too strict on leases, I understand why, but some of the crap they put us through can be avoidable.
The dealer said I could trade for an Accord, but would have $200 negative equity rolled into the payment, $200 on top of the payment.
Did you know the salesmen tried telling me to start paying more, like $20 or so more a month to lower my payoff, now tell me that makes sense....?! It does, but who does that on a lease, its not my car, I wouldn't be paying off the principal. Only paying down a negative equity to trade early, but still BAD idea... Just goes to show you the salesmen is all talk, and I think I know more than they do sometimes things. Mainly because of this website! Anyways, its okay, I am happy with my G6, I will look again next spring, perhaps at a new Acura TSX or the Accord. I am a Honda guy!

Well, I tried getting out of my lease, I have only had my car for about 5-6mts, but wanted to see where I stand on trade in for my car. So I went to a local Honda dealer, and it was ugly, they told me that it would about another $200 on top of a new payment for the Accord. They could do it, but that would be the deal. I kinda find it unbelievable. I am sure I can do much better than that, if I really kept trying. I think in a few month, I might trying talking to a successful salesmen here locally, he is really good, and see what he thinks I can do. He can sell Honda, but normally sells toyota. Every time here is salesmen of the month. It is possible, regardless of what people say, people can get out, but you have to try, and it is hard to do.

I know - they are WAY expensive and only available at dealership. The nice thing is that you can replace just one, or both. Don't have to go through a pair every time you need a new blade. I did replace each of mine once already - owned my G6 for about 18 months now. Do you use yours alot?

#2392 of 2458 first issue
Oct 14, 2008 (2:36 am)
Okay, Well I have had my first issue with my 08 G6. I got in my car and realized I could not roll down any of my windows. Although, the sunroof opened and nothing else seemed to be out. It is a little frustrating. Actually really annoying. I am documenting everything.
This has nothing to do with the windows, but I am thinking of transferring the lease to a new owner. GMAC is allows this for $595 processing fee. I really want a Honda product back. This would be the only way to get out without some major expense.
Now getting someone to take over will be interesting. But, with only 8k miles, and $319 a month, it is a really good deal for what you are getting. Leather, roof, 4cyl.
Then once a new owner has been approved, then they are responsible for the lease, and the account is closed on my end. I then can go get a new lease.
Hopefully, if I decide to keep the car a bit longer, I will not have any more issues.
