I HAVE AN 2009 G6. WHEN MY TRANSMISSION WENT OUT I CALLED THE PONTIAC DIVISION OF GENERAL MOTORS. THEY ASK MY DEALER NAME. THEY CALLED THE DEALER AND KEEP ME INFORMED ON THE REPAIR STATUS. THEY GOT THE DEALER IN GEAR TO GET IT FIXED. AT LEAST U HAVE A SOUND TO GO BY TO KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG, MINE JUST STOPPED. THE GEARS WERE ALL BLOWN APART ON THE INSIDE. THEY WERE GOING TO REBUILD. I TOLD PONTIAC DIV. I DID NOT WANT A REBUILD. IT WASN'T REBUILD WHEN I BOUGHT IT 39000 MILES EARLIER. IT RUNS GREAT AGAIN NO PROBLEMS YET ALSO THERE IS A LAW SOMEWHERE THAT AFTER 3 MAJOR PROBLEMS THE CAR IS CLASSIFIED AS A LEMON

The dealer told me they fixed it the first time if it's not fixed this time I'll be calling the head manager

#172 of 241 '07 G6 Convertible with tranny problem
Nov 15, 2011 (1:55 pm)
I have a 2007 G6 Convertible with the 3.9L engine and 4 speed automatic. In the past 8 months or so it has developed an intermittent problem with the transmission. I will have come to a complete stop and the transmission will not have down shifted to first. It doesn't seem to matter how long I have stopped. It can be a few seconds to a minute. When I accelerate it will down shift to first with a clunk. The distance/time until it down shifts varies. The longer it takes the harder the shift. I have taken it in twice to the local former Pontiac dealer. The first time they had it for a day. The second time I took it in I was going on vacation for almost a week. Neither time have they been able to replicate the problem. This second time they did discover a leaking water pump and replaced it under the power train warranty so I assume they are doing something to try to discover the problem. There aren't any codes or check engine lights or anything. I've never had problem in manual mode but I don't use that very often. The only time I have a shifting problem is from a dead start. It down shifts fine when I pass somebody.
Does anybody have any ideas or suggestion or possibly had or heard of the problem?

Thank you for posting this, Ocalag6htc,
Thank you for being willing to work with our dealerships, and I'm sorry to hear that the problem wasn't able to be replicated while in their care. As we do need to duplicate the concern in order to make a diagnosis, should things resurface and you decide to go back into the dealership we're available to help you work with them towards resolving this concern.

#174 of 241 delayed shift

A delayed down shift should lead the dealership some where. Could be bad connector, lots of corrosion problems on G6 and Malibu electrical connectors.

Have you had the transmission serviced (i.e. fluid and filter service)?

Having the same problem as this, two dealer changed my trans fluid, and told me to bring it back if the problem remains. Can you tell me if the problem was ever found?, if so, what they found.

Unfortunately, I don't have information as to whether or not the problem was found in this instance (I respond to the posts here, and another Customer Service Representative responds to emails and handles cases). Would you like for us to work with you towards diagnosing this with your dealership? If so, please get in touch via email with more information, including: your name/Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of yoru VIN and current mileage, and the name of your dealership.
Thank you for your patience,

Yes I've had the transmission serviced. They did that on the first visit. Most of the mechanics I've talked to suspect a bad solenoid.
