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.

While driving on highway at 60 mph on highway right line almost at my exit. The gps fell from the window and must of hit the area of the shift column it didn't come out of drive though. The car shut off. I was able to move over to the shoulder push the flashes and emergency break when the brakes did not work just a large nose steering didn't work well. Bringing it to the dealership and have them check the steering column out again. This is the 2nd time the car shut off while driving I feel this is a part of the original recall in 2015 that listed this make, model and year Pontiac G6 2007 Massachusetts route 2 West leominster. MA. restarted the car, got to my destination, and drove home that night lower speeds.

I have attempted to speak to the dealer I purchased this car from and have been unsuccessful. I have an engine oil leak, gas leak, and I am not able to turn my wheel left or right as something is and has been going on with my powersteering. I have paid for repairs but have been pushed off and given the run around about all that I have said. My car is and has been unsafe to drive and now I do not know what to do as it has gotten terribly worse. I have been advised that all recalls were done (by the dealer), and other sources have advised me they could not have been done with the problems that I am been having and that I am currently having.

General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in 2004-2012 Malibu, 2004-2007 Malibu maxx, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6, 2007-2010 Saturn aura vehicles. On these vehicles, over time an increased resistance can develop in the body control module (BCM) connection system and result in voltage fluctuations or intermittency in the brake apply sensor (bas) circuit that can cause service brake lamp malfunction. As a result, the service brake lamps may illuminate when the service brakes are not being applied, or may not illuminate when the service brakes are being applied. Additionally, cruise control may not engage. If cruise control is engaged, additional service brake pedal travel may be required to disengage it. Service brake pedal application may not be required to move the shift lever out of park, or additional service brake pedal travel may be required to move the shift lever out of park. Traction control, electronic stability control, and panic braking assist features, if equipped, may be disabled. Service ESC and/or traction control tell-tales may illuminate with this condition. General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in 2004-2008 my Chevrolet Malibu (gmx380) and 2005-2008 my Pontiac G6 with 4-speed transmissions (MN5); except for vehicles already repaired under safety recall 12106 12V-460 with labor code V2671 or V2672 and 2007 and some 2008 my Saturn aura vehicles equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission (ME7/MN5). These vehicles have a condition in which the transmission shift cable may fracture at any time.

While driving on the express way, all of a sudden the reduced engine power / service traction control alert comes on..I have an 07 pontic G6 that keeps giving me a "reduced engine power" message, then cuts your power and you can't drive more than about 30 mph. This is so dangerous to have the power go from 70 mph to 30, it keeps doing that. I have replaced the gas peddle ($180) and it still does that, so I am have the throddle body replaced, god knows what that is going to cost me. Is there any recalls on this happening to others? like I said, it is very dangerour when your pulling out in front of cars and it does this.

•May 2013 – engine shuts off when manually downshifting. Restarts shortly afterwards. •April 2014 – engine shuts off after decelerating to drive over a speed hump. Will not immediately restart and must be towed. Tow truck driver is able to get car started by "jiggling the key." •April 28, 2015 – engine shuts off while waiting at stoplight. Will not restart and must be towed. Again, tow truck driver "jiggles the key" to start the engine. •April 30, 2015 – fuel system service and adjust "loose transmission cable" - $203.25 – check engine light comes back on the next day. •May 8, 2015 – engine shuts off after decelerating to drive over a speed hump. Restarts shortly afterwards. •May 15, 2015 – engine shuts off while coming to a stop to let a car in front turn left. Car restarts after a few minutes. Every time the engine shuts off, the power steering and power breaks fail as well. Fortunately, every one of the nearly half-dozen times this has happened, it has occurred at low speed or while stopped. I can only imagine what would happen if this occurred at 70 mph on the highway. Although the G6 is not included as one of the 20 models and 2.6 million cars recalled for a faulty ignition switch, the likenesses between my issues and these other cars are strikingly similar.

I have just received my fourth recall notice only on my 2007 Pontiac G-6. I have twice spoken with someone about the importance of this matter, and when they thought it may be fixed. I have concerns on this as the car does have to be used on a daily basis, and occasional 350 mile round trip. I am not very dissatisfied with the way this is being handled, I do not want to see another notice of the recall, I want it fixed !!! I would think this time frame should not have to go by when a safety issue is at risk. Safety recall#14152 and 13036 I plan to report this issue to whom it concerns.

Returned to car, after leaving the gym, car would not start making loud noise when attempting to start. Triple aaa came attempted to charge battery then change battery still not starting so it was towed to dealer. Dealer reported could not get engine to go forward or backwards questioned if warning lights came on or any leaks which there were none, informed I would need new engine and decided to go forward with that. Rebuilt engine put in vehicle, dealer then informed me that car had loss of power no acceleration that the catalytic converter is bad and needs to be replaced, but is under warranty by GM. Now I'm upset that theres been a known problem with the catalytic converter, I was not notified and it cost me an engine.
