Squeaking brakes on our 2008 Pontiac G6 squeaks often bought car new had back to dealer 5 times. They claim not unusual for G6 problem, and said they replaced pads & turned rotors, (do not believe since only in shop 45 min), and claim they cannot duplicate problem. Says it caused by dirt. No way!!!! lots of same complaint on very same problems from others. This should be seriously looked at!!!!

2008 Pontiac G6, brakes squeaking and after it sits for awhile, upon starting out, makes a clunking noise. I have had the brakes inspected 2-3 times since I purchased the car in April. They tell me there is nothing they can do about it. I become concerned when the brakes on my car begin to make noises, can this be a safety issue?

All four rotors warped after only 5K miles. Are they undersized for this model/weight vehicle?

At random points in time my Pontiac G6 will not brake properly. When you push the pedal the pedal will go down to the floor and then come back up. When it comes back up it normally will be functional. The problem is it takes a few seconds for my brakes to become functional which has almost resulted in a few accidents. The problem only happens about 1 a week or 1 time every 2 weeks. When it happens whoever is driving is scarred out of their mind. My parents do not even want me driving this vehicle because it has a definate safety issue. I have contacted the dealership numerous times regarding the breaks. They said the first time that there was an abnormal amount of break dust. After that they could not duplicate the problem so they will not repair it. I have contacted the Pontiac rep and they have been investigating the problem for a little over a month now with no repairs made. In the mean time I am driving an unsafe car, hoping that I don't hurt my self let along any one else. My car in the mean time always squeals when you break. My car is a 2008 G6 and just turned 10,000 miles. I should not be having issues this soon.

I am a current owner of an 2008 Pontiac G6 with the V6 option. It seems for only having the vehicle for 15000 miles the rotors are beginning to warp, as reading forums I found that this is a very common problem on this particular model and would forth hence like to file a complaint about it.
