2009 Pontiac G6 lights NHTSA complaints: Exterior Lighting:Headlights

NHTSA — Exterior Lighting: Headlights Problems

CarComplaints.com Seal Of Pretty Good

CarComplaints.com Notes: We are rating the 2009 Pontiac G6 as "Pretty Good", but very tentatively because of the serious problems that prior model years have.

The only real problem showing up so far with the 2009 G6 is headlights blow out more frequently than normal. The blown headlight problem seems to be 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.

When driving the low beam light will go out. The vehicle will be fine and then the head lights will go dim or even go out when driving. This happens about once a month. Problem started in may of 2012. I see several complaints online regarding this vehicle. This is a know problem with the computer and BCM module. This vehicle is not safe to drive at night. I need for GM to issue a recall.
