Update: The car came back from the dealer again and Carmax said that it still isn't fixed. The turn signal and the air temp are right (all the dealer did was clean a BCM connector) but the fog lights still don't work. So the dealer is sending it to the dealer again because they said it seems to be a "computer issue." Any ideas would be helpful. They've had the car a month. Thanks.

Thank you for your response. I am working with Carmax since that is where we bought the car and bought the extended warranty. They have been dealing with the local Chevy dealership, where the car is being sent back to.

I absolutely HATE this car!! I bought it 1 year ago and have had nothing but problem after problem with it!! First my locks to my back doors NEVER unlock or lock, I have to open back doors and push locks down every time then when we get back in car we have to climb over front seats to unlock doors so they will open, my brakes have to be changed every few months cause they go out prematurely, my front end sounds like a loud, deep sounding creaking noise all the time, there is always water on my backseat passanger floor, and to top it all off I cannot even drive the car in the dark because the drivers side headlight doesn't work on dim or bright and I have changed the bulbs about 6 times in the past year they work for a week to a month then it goes out AGAIN!!!!!! I CANNOT STRESS HOW MUCH I HATE THIS CAR! There should be tons of recalls on this car but pontiac has ignored and avoided all the consumers complaints, there is several that I have found with the same problems as I have!! I just want to drive this car into a wall! So what is Pontiac/GMC going to do for my problems you ask? Well I can purchase out of pocket the $300 wiring harness and have all the lighting rewired and pay the labor fee of $1400.00!! Did I mentioned I just bought this car a year ago for $14,900 and paid cash for it? Where is the CUSTOMER SERVICE????

The dealership just redid the wiring harness in our 2005 G6 GT and we are still having problems so don't expect to lay out all that money and have the problem resolved. Its going back to them for the 3rd time since the end of November. I'm glad we got the extended warranty with all the repairs this piece of junk has needed. Good luck.

Good morning, Kathy,
As you're working with Carmax, I will step back. However, if I can ever be of assistance, don't hesitate to get in touch with us via email.

I can understand your frustration. Have you worked with Customer Assistance in regards to these concerns yet? You may still be within your New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and we can check that if you were to send us the last 8 digits of your VIN through an email.

#57 of 86 New GM same as the old GM

Good luck dealing with GM, After several emails and lack of promised return calls, GM's resolution was to offer me a discount on a new car which is useless to me as I wasn't planning be in the market for a new car for awhile. Its funny when you sell something to GM and there is an issue they feel should be covered under warranty they expect you to take care of it regardless of whether the equipment is still within the warranty period or not.
Looks to me like the new GM is the same as the old GM, I have been a loyal GM buyer for over 35 years with 15+ GM vehicles purchased in that time. I am extremely disappointed in the response from GM. I also have a 2008 Cadillac that I may sell before the warranty runs out, as the customer rep. explained to me that I might want to get rid of my G6 with all of the problems we have had and the warranty is gone. I guess 44,000 is the useful expected life of a GM car.
Thank You GM for rewarding me for my 35 years of loyalty.

The dealer replaced the body control module. It is one of the main computers on the car. It was staying on too long and draining the battery. It has been 2 months no problems yet.
