2007 Pontiac G6 Owner Comments

problem #5

Oct 172010


  • 48,500 miles


Have owned vehicle since Oct. 2008. Approx 1yr ago in 2009, started to experience airbag problems. Adult person of sufficient weight will sit in front passenger seat. At random points of car ride, passenger side airbag indicator will show "off" and car will chime while displaying message "airbag off" even though a person is sitting in the seat. Also, randomly when driving "service airbag" will show on dash and indicator light will show "on" when seat is not occupied. Contacted manufacturer and was told VIN is not included on airbag recall NHTSA # 07V146000 despite experiencing those issues.

Passenger right front air bag light stays on. Computer diagnosis indicates faulty air bag sensing system. Recall issued id# 07V146000 but does not cover 2007 Pontiac G6. GM refuses to fix at no cost because vehicle is beyond warranty.

G6 6-cyl

  • 500 miles
Air bag sensor does not turn off airbag when a small child sits in the front seat. There is a 359 unit recall on this make/model for this defect but dealer states it doesn't cover my car and that airbag should turn on when passenger weight exceeds 30-40 pounds. NHTSA campaign id: 07V146000.
