Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

My headlight burned out on the driver's side of the car. I replaced it and it lasted about two weeks and then burned out again. Found the socket melted and burned up real bad. I replaced the headlight socket assembly and it worked for about a month and then would come on only when I slammed the hood (sometimes.) and then stopped working for good. The bright light on the driver's side of the car worked fine up until then, but soon after went out so I replaced that bulb and socket assembly with no result. Neither bright nor dim light works on driver's side. I can't figure it out. No one can tell me why it's doing it, and none of the mechanics I've been to have any idea why the headlights aren't functioning properly (at all.) it's frustrating. It's dangerous. And it has cost me more money than lights should ever cost a person. I haven't driven the car in months because I'm tired of getting pulled over. It sucks and I still am paying on this car and can't even use it. I hate Pontiac. GM needs to shutdown. Never been satisfied with a GM vehicle.

The contact owns a 2007 Pontiac G6. The contact stated that the brake lights remained illuminated on the vehicle. The brake lights would disengage when the brake pedal was depressed with great force. The failure was intermittent. The dealer diagnosed that the pedal position sensor needed to be replaced. The contact believed that the diagnosis was incorrect because the pedal position sensor had been replaced two weeks prior to the diagnostic test. The vehicle was serviced per NHTSA campaign number: 14V252000 (electrical system, electronic stability control, exterior lighting, service brakes, hydraulic, vehicle speed control), but the remedy failed to repair the vehicle. The contact mentioned that the brake lights would remain illuminated while driving after the recall repair was performed. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown.

Ever since I purchased this car the headlights never stay on. It's either one or the other, no matter how often I replace them, one goes out. It's dangerous for me to drive with my child in the car with one headlight. I've had it "fixed" several times, even the wiring. Despite my attempts, I still always only have one headlight.

Takata recall for about a month now my vehicle has been randomly dying. I was on the highway when suddenly everything locked up I couldn't stop, couldn't brake, the engine seized and I was unable to restart the car. The steering wheel was moving in both directions by itself, then locked up. I had to get out and push the car into a safe place and was unable to re-start it.

Electrical spasms. All gauges(including speedometer and tac) flake out, bounce around, go to zero. Traction control shuts down. HVAC electrical goes out. No way to see out windshield as defrost will not work when this occurs. Warning lights come on an off and on again etc. This can occur when driving or stationary, you never know when it will occur. Very unsafe and relates very well with recall already made by GM on 05/15/2014 for 2007 G6 but not for my G6"?? how??" I have been fighting this for many years and can't get them to take care of it properly. Dealer did actually fix one problem once when the blower fan would come on whenever it felt like it even when the car was off, key out of the ignition, doors locked, and us walking away. Needless to say we had a few dead battery instances. Actually had a dealer and GM involved. Dealer wanted to have a blank check to continue to do diagnostics after having see the problem and extracted 17 error codes from the vehicles computer. They couldn't figure it out, asked GM who had no idea, and wanted me to let them diagnose with no limit. Unbelievable. Many reports of the same problem can be found on the internet.

I have had to change my driver's side headlight bulb four times in four months. The last one that I had changed blew almost immediately after installation (within three hours).when I took it back to be fixed I was told that the connecter cable has melted because the light gets to hot. Now I have to have that part replaced as well, and I am given no guarantee that it will last either. The worst part is that the dealership wants $55 for the part and $143 for labor! crazy!
