#26 of 173 2006 Pontiac G6 GTP
Dec 15, 2006 (1:28 pm)
I leased my G6 in September of 2005. It has been in for service 15 time in the 15 months I have had it. I have been stranded twice, paint issues, black spot in middle of hood 3 weeks after I got it, clear coat peeling off. The clutch sensor has been replaced 2 times, body control module once, speedometer sensor once. The sunroof has leaked on 3 separate occasions. The car is at the dealers at this time because on 12/12/2006 the clutch went in it. It has been there for over a week with no end in site, because they cannot find a clutch!!! GM refuses to take the car back or even replace it. They have offered me to skip a few car payments and their last offer was an extended 72 month bumper to bumper warranty. If they bothered to read my file, they would know the car is leased for 3 years and already has this warranty!!!! I am at my wits end with them. I am going to file with the Better Business Bureau Autoline to try to get some help. If anyone has had these issues or know anything else I can do, please let me know. I will never buy another GM product again. I thought I bought the car of my dreams, instead it has been a nightmare from the first week I got the car.

wow! I was so excited when I found this car. My Volvo convertible's lease is up so I thought this might be a great replacement. Your story is a nightmare.

I received a voice mail from the owner of the dealership. Apparently due to my lack of response, he's now playing...which I don't consider a bad thing whatsoever. My guess is that this car has been sitting on their lot for quite sometime now and they just want to get rid of it. At any rate, they are giving me a 7% discount over the MSRP. I have received a few other responses from dealers offering 9% off the MSRP.
Here is one that I received today (MSRP was $26,105 inc/dest)...
Red Tag Discount - $2352
OTD price w/ 0% financing is $25,253.93
OTD price w/ $1000 cash back is $24,253.93
Factor in that I have over $3k on my GM Credit Card earnings and another $1k earnings on a Citibank Drivers Edge card, then that drops the price down to ~$21k (since I plan on taking the 0% financing for 60 months).
Still haven't made up my mind though...plan on giving the owner a call to see what he says.

When you say out the door, are you adding tax/title/license.

Sorry, my bad.
Tax, Title, License were extra. I guess I meant sale price. I think the best part, was what they gave me for my trade, working lower still from the 29,311 figure.

You asked about gas mileage..
I do mostly (75%) highway driving, and gas mileage gage sits around 22.5, unless I am doing 100% highway and then it will get 24-24.5MPG.
