Pontiac G6 Guides

Pontiac G6 Problems

Even during the car's budding, the first Pontiac G6 introduced in 2004 was immediately well-received by the public. Its stylish and sporty appeal has earned the fancy of car owners from around the globe, and in fact, the mid-size car was dubbed as Pontiac's go-to car. Despite its esteemed fame, the car suffers from several issues that can need to be addressed. Pontiac fan or not, better take note of these common problems encountered with the G6 in order to prepare when such issues arise.

Steering Issues

One of the most common issues reported by Pontiac G6 owners involves steering problems. The reports claim that the car's power steering may lock up or go out completely during the drive. Drivers reported several symptoms they encountered, which may include an increased effort in steering the wheel or a noticeable movement by the steering wheel itself.

According to most service bulletins, these problems were usually caused by low levels of steering fluid and damaged parts in the power steering assembly. To check, it is advised that the G6's sockets and steering gears are to be inspected for signs of defects. When looking for a fix, the most common solution reported for this steering failure is a steering column replacement.

Brake light problem

Another commonly experienced problem encountered with a Pontiac G6 is a brake light defect. The brake lights are often found to light up by themselves, even if the brake was not applied. This problem is primarily attributed to a faulty wiring. In fact, in February 2009, the General Motors Company recalled around 8,000 units of G6 autos due to recurring brake light problems.

Convertible top defect

The Pontiac G6 is offered in different body styles which include coupe, sedan, and the classy convertible. Among the body styles, the popular G6 convertible has been known to exhibit exterior damage, the more prominent of which is a stuck top. This damaged part usually gives excessive resistance, causing the top to fail to open. The most probable cause of this problem is a rusting pivot point. Luckily, this type of defect is easily addressed with a WD-40 and a wire brush.

Some Tips to Make Your Pontiac G6 Always Ready to Have Fun under the Sun

Before the winter comes, many vehicle owners become too busy winterizing their ride. Well, that's understandable as winter can really be too hard on your car. But you should also remember how harsh the sun's UV rays can be on your vehicle especially on scorching summer days. So, before the summer kicks in or if you live in a place that's mostly sunny throughout the year, you have to make your Pontiac G6 geared up for whatever the sunny season might throw at it. By keeping your ride in top shape, there's one less factor that could stop you have having fun under the summer sun.

  • Have the AC system checked by a pro.

During summertime travels, make sure that you can trust your a/c system to keep you comfortable inside your ride. If possible, have it inspected and fixed (if necessary) by a qualified technician. An a/c specialist will check it for worn or damaged belts, leaks, and any other problem that could hinder the refrigerant from doing its cooling job efficiently. Check your manual for the cabin air filter replacement schedule; if it's nearing its recommended service life, you'd better ask the technician to replace it as well during the a/c service.

  • Make sure the cooling system works well.

There's only one thing that could save your Pontiac's engine from overheating—the cooling system. Make sure that it is completely flushed every 24 months and that the antifreeze is topped up whenever it goes near the minimum line. You should also check the level, condition, as well as the concentration of the coolant; it should be made up of a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water. Also check the tightness and the condition of the radiator hoses; make sure there's no leak or cracks.

  • Consider putting on summer tires.

Summer tires will make your G26 run faster and handle better; they also help improve the vehicle's fuel efficiency. Unlike winter tires, the ones designed for summer driving come with less-aggressive tread and shorter sidewall. If your ride is already fitted with all-season tires, then you can pass up on putting summer tires on. Just make sure that your current all-season tires don't have signs of uneven wear and cupping. You can also consider rotating them if your Pontiac already has 5,000 miles.

  • Do a thorough brake check.

In some places, summertime is characterized not only by scorching heat but also by sudden downpour or violent thunderstorms especially at night. If you live in such areas, the more often you should check your brakes as they are more likely to become more responsive when they are wet. Before a long-distance summer drive with your family, make it a point to check your brakes; if the pads are worn past their minimum thickness, have them replaced with new ones. Also, be mindful of how the brake pedal performs as it says a lot about your brakes' condition. If you notice anything strange about the brakes—unusual noise when the brakes are applied, soft and mushy pedal, warning lights coming on—have your brakes serviced the soonest. Fix any issue first before driving your car again.

Pontiac G6: Conservative Styling, Aggressive Driving

The Pontiac G6 was introduced in 2004 to replace the Pontiac Grand Am. Most of the engine specifics of the Grand Am were retained, but the styling has been remodeled to suit the more conservative packaging of the G6. The ribbed cladding and the rear spoiler that were central to the design template of the Grand Am has been replaced by standard sheet metal. Despite the conservative styling, the G6 was never shy of convenient features; remote starting system, traction control/ABS, automatic headlights, and panoramic sunroof became standard on all GT models.

The launch

The base model “V6” and the sportier “GT” were the two trim levels that were available when the Pontiac G6 debuted in the market. Both trims ran on a 3.5L pushrod V6 engine that produced 200 hp, and 300 Nm of torque. The features of the base model included keyless entry, six-speaker CD stereo, split folding rear seat, power locks, windows, and mirrors.

Driving for power

A coupe and a retractable hard top convertible has been added to the body style choices during the 2006 model year. The four-cylinder “SE” and the high-performance “GTP” were also introduced as new trim options. The base engine has been reduced to 2.4L DOHC incline-4 with 169 hp; this was implemented to give way to the sport-package offering of the new trims and body styles that offered the previous 3.5L engine. An engine updates for the more expensive trims was also offered; a 3.9L VVT with 240 hp engine became available.

Aggressive driving

The 2007 model year saw more engine changes. The former 3.5L that ran on V6 engine has been updated to VVT to raise the horsepower to 224. The 3.6L DOHC V6 with 24 valves and VVT also saw an increase with horsepower to 252. Subtle interior updates also saw the light of day, standard side torso and side curtain bags were new.

Updates design cues

Midway through the 2009 model year, the G6 was given a facelift beginning from the front fascia, to its rear end. However, the last US-built Pontiac automobiles rolled off the assembly line on November 25, 2009. The final 100 Pontiac G6 units were built to complete a then-existing fleet order before the automobile was finally cancelled. After the 2009 model year, GM began marketing the Buick brand in Mexico as a replacement for the Pontiac trade name; the G6 was then replaced by the larger Buick LaCrosse.
