2007 Pontiac G5. Consumer writes in regards to seat belt, engine and other vehicle problems. The consumer stated on July 30, 2012, the seat belts had to be replaced, due to the check air bags light was flashing. She was charged $100 for a seat belt kit. One year later, while driving in the passing lane at 70 mph, the vehicle slowed down to about 20 or 30 mph. The consumer was able to get off the road. She turned the vehicle off, waited and re-started it again. The check engine light remained on. The dealer replaced the sensor behind the accelerator pedal. In December 2013, the vehicle slowed down once again, while driving at 70 mph. The dealer charged her for an accelerator pedal, and the automatic door trunk, trunk opener and the electric start, never worked since. The consumer was informed, she probably dropped the keys and broke something inside. However, everything worked up until that point.

Driving around a corner in town at approximately 25 miles per hour in snowy conditions on a rough road; tried to accelerate to make it up a hill and the accelerator wouldn't work (could push down, but wouldn't accelerate); tried to turn the steering wheel to make the corner and the vehicle started sliding on the snow; tried to turn the wheel in the opposite direction and was unable to manipulate the wheel. Crashed the vehicle into two parked cars; the seat belt mount disconnected from the frame. The air bag did deploy. Driver was unable to shut off the engine after the wreck.

"service airbags" screen keeps popping up on dashboard. I've noticed many others with a Pontiac G5 2007 or Chevy cobalt have the same issue. When the light is on, I was told by a dealership, that the airbags will not deploy. The passenger seat doesn't register anyone sitting on the seat even when someone is sitting and buckled up.
