You are in the Pontiac G6
What is this discussion about?
Pontiac G6, Convertible
Sep 04, 2009 (8:36 am)
I agree with you everyone on here just complains and complains. My wife and I love our 2007 G6 Convertable this is our 6th convertable and you know what every one of them had little rattles and squeaks. It is a convertable that when you have a roof that is not WELDED to the rest of the car it will flex and do a little moaning and groaning. My aunt has a Merceded 320 convertable and it is worse than my car plus when the top is up it is still very noisy. I for one plan on keeping our car a long time esp. since Pontiac is no more.

I just hit the three year mark with my HTC. I have had numerous issues with my car and yes, I have complained about it on this board.
Through complaining and talking about the problems I have also been able to tell my dealer how to fix my issues (top rattles, airbag sensors, etc).
My car has been "problem" free for about a year and 4 months now and I still get looks and questions about the car.
It's ashame the car did not catch on..

Is there anywhere I can go to run the serial number on my 07 G6 Converable? I have been told that it was only the 38th unit to come off the line of the actual production cars and would like to verify that somehow.

That is an easy question. First off, the G6 HTC came out in 2006, so the 38th car of 2007 might be no big deal. You can always call Pontiac (the phone # is in your owners manual ....OR.....go to Pontiac.com). They have all the build info on each vehicle right in the computer.

Yes, I have to agree too! That we don't live in a perfect world. You sometimes have to take the good with the bad.
It is probably best anyway that Pontiac dies. The brand was old and stale. Which is all the more reason they should have lower amount of issues. I have an 08 G6 and you would have thought that it was the first car model out. Having silly parts replaced already. However, it does run better, but it still has 1 gear in the transmission that loves to show off a bit. I am not even going to worry about it. I cannot expect perfection at this point. Luckily I lease the car, and can walk away. Pontiac service was nice, but only after some force.
Getting the car you "want" from the very start is always wise. "within reason" of course. You'll keep it longer and be much happier. Do your research first on any car.
I never knew my car had a problem, never driven a GM car before, I was used to Hondas and the G6 had a problem at brand new!! Test drive your cars too! before signing.
When the windows are down and the sunroof open, music playing, I love the car.
Just be careful. I took a chance and well...I got my answer. I am not the only one...lol. I can live with it now.

Thanks I looked at pontiac.com but didn't see where to go to check. I knew the cars came out in 06 but thought they were all titled 07 mine was actually delivered to the dealership in Florida July of 06. Thanks for the info.

The 2006 G6's can be recognized by the side body molding. 2006's came in two models......the GT and the GTP. The GT was the cheaper of the two. Since the major portions of the options are basically the Premium Package and the Sport Package, the GTP had them both.
My 2007 has the both packages, the adjustable pedals, and the side airbags. The only thing that I know for sure that would be missing is the engine block heater.
Also, I mentioned Pontiac.com so you could find the phone number to contact them. They will even tell you on what date is what built.

I bought mine at Ideal in Middletown before they closed.
Their repair dept was great.

I purchased my G6 convertible in 06/06 and have to replace my exhaust three times due to the whistling sound. The dealership has also replaced the catalytic converter but the whistling sound has come back. You mentioned that the dealership said that there was a recall do you have any further information or a bulletin on this as both my dealership and GM Pontiac say that they have never heard of such a problem and can't figure out why this will be my fourth stainless steel exhaust?
Thanks would welcome any information to get this problem resolved.

I would probably expect less support on our G6's as time goes by. I have had a catalytic converter replaced, transmission is still acting up in one gear, they re-programmed the computer which controls the engine. Does run better, better mileage. Replaced the fuses to my windows 2 times, I couldn't roll them down.
My CD player doesn't always want to eject my cd correctly. These may seem quite small issues, except for the transmission or engine, which I believe is almost lemon! Been like this since new, been in the shop several times. GM sent me a survey, and it was honest and truthful. Not too pretty.
But, this is on a car that should have all kinks out by now, since its been out a long time. Luckily, I lease, I hope to try to get out next spring.
If I were you, I would get out soon at some point.
