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.

Got headlight fixed and then it went out on me again. Sheeesh, this car is becoming more of a problem than I anticipated. My next car will NOT be a Pontiac, I promise you it will not.

This is the worst car imaginable. I tried to support American cars but it looks as though only foreign cars fit the mold. I've read many complaints about these specific cars online. And many have called an complained. We shouldn't have to spend additional money on a car that's nots even 5yrs old . Unless its everyday wear and tear. I won'ta called to tell me what it is they cans do to fix this mess. They call a car.. When we purchased this car we had the headlights changed not knowing their was a problem brewing. We've had the front head lights changed 3 times. And the tail lights changed 5to 6 times. We've gotten pulled over becaause we had no tail lights and didn't know it. Theres not even a signal to let you know ther is a problem like other cars. FIX MY CAR. I thought I was doing a great job by purchasing an AMERICAN car now I see it was a mistake.
