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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

NHTSA — Visibility/Wiper Problems Notes: The 2009 is starting to have the same problems as previous model years, including the headlights blowing out due to bad connectors.

The wiring harness connections aren't a big deal to replace, as long as your dealer or mechanic doesn't charge you an arm & a leg to "diagnose" the problem.

2009 Pontiac G6 Owner Comments

The contact owns a 2009 Pontiac G6. While driving approximately 70 mph in light rainy weather conditions, the windshield wipers failed to operate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the windshield wiper transmission fractured. The vehicle was repaired. Prior to the vehicle being repaired, the windshield wiper blades were replaced because an unusual noise was heard whenever the wipers were activated. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was unknown. The approximate failure mileage was 95,000. Updated 07/28/16

The wipers failed to work. But after 10-15 minutes of the vehicle operating they began to then work. Sometimes the wipers would work with the washers and high speed only. When the wipers were left on and the car was parked, the battery drained and was dead the next morning. Then the engine on two occasions attempted to start itself when sitting and not on. On one occasion it successfully started itself. On several occasions the interior dome light stayed on.

Issues with low beam headlights randomly going out then coming back on at first for a couple of months, then went out completely. Replaced bulbs (low beam) with same problems. Finally found that the low beam light sockets (primarily passenger side) were arcing and shorting out causing bulbs not to work. Recall should be issued to have GM remedy this problem. This is a chronic problem with this line of cars!
