Don't expect GM to come to the table with anything. I had a problem that I finally had to take to different GM dealer to get fixed. I asked GM to pick up the tab as it was a problem since day one. Their reply was a coupon towards a new car which I don't need. The best part of the conversation was when I told the GM rep that both of my GM cars only had 50K on them his response was they were out of warranty so you better get rid of them.

Per the G6 Owners Manual:
Unlocked doors can be dangerous.
Your vehicle is programmed at the factory to lock all
doors automatically when the following are met:
• All doors are closed.
• The ignition is on.
• The shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) for
vehicles with an automatic transmission.
This feature cannot be disabled.
So, if something that contributes to vehicle occupant safety does not operate as designed, it is a safety issue.

You have manual locks, electric just makes it easier. It's just a guard against lazy people.
You have DRL, if not working, not a safety item.
Canada mandates DRL, US does not. US does not mandate that doors be locked when moving, that would be big brother.

So, what you're really saying is that it's OK that connectors melt and electric door locks don't work on a vehicle that's not even 5 years old?

What I am saying is, you won't get them fixed for free unless you have extended warranty.
The locks have been a known poor reliability, not just G6, other GM models, no recall that I have ever seen. The melted connectors go back to first Z body 04 Malibu, which is the same Z body design as G6.
A lot of GM design problems are not covered out of warranty, the infamous intake manifold coolant leak on GM V6 engines were never covered that I know of.
I have read at times if you had all your work done at the same dealer, they may at there discretion, give a customer satisfaction repair, not common though.

After reading all of the problems, I am very sorry I didn't research fully before I purchased my g6. My headlights don't work, my back passenger door does not unlock, my battery went out, I've had to replace fuses and hoses and cracked water tanks, all on my 2009. This is by far the worst car I have ever owned. And with person after person complaining of the same issues, you'd think they'd recall them and save their "valued customers" some money, but no. It doesn't matter that we make our car payments on time, paid it in full, and keeps their shops filled to the brim with repairs that aren't covered. I am diasppointed in GM, and will never, ever buy a car from them again. Thanks a bunch.

Well I am very disappointed in the customer service of pontiac!!! My car was brought to the dealer every time I have had problems which might I add was 6 times in 1 year and I had bought the extended warranty for my car and none of the times could they get it fixed. My extended warranty expired at 75,000 miles and I brought my car back with 77,00 miles on it. Hmm once again they had to put a body control modular in I had to pay over 400.00 for it even though I had brought it there well in my extended warranty time frame and they could not pinpoint the problem because it was electrical and did not always do it when I brought it there. BS . Pontiac customer service has jacked me around for weeks because I thought they should pay for these repairs. Well after numerous phone calls of the same BS they tell me tonight they are not going to pay for it!! NEVER buy a PONTIAC G6 and I will never buy another GM product!
