My daughter bought a 2008 Pontiac G6 in 2010. In June of 2011, the left headlight went out while she was driving at night. She took it in for repair and they found that the connector had melted and needed to be replaced. In April 2012, the right headlight quit working. Again it was a case of the connector melting. This appears to be a case of faulty parts and presents a serious safety issue when the lights suddenly quit at night.
