It appears there are four (4) recalls on this model/make/year - we have never received a single recall notification. NHTSA campaign # 14V252000, #14V224000, 14V153000, 12V460000. I would appreciated further information in correcting identified recalls.

I have a 2008 Pontiac G6 and the electric power steering is going out but Pontiac said it was not a covered VIN# I found this and a letter that said there is some thing wrong. The extended warranties will cover the 2005, 2006 and 2008 models of the Pontiac G6, Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu maxx; the 2008 Saturn aura and the 2004-2007 Saturn ion. I had a problem with the oil sensor that all the other Pontiac G6's had and they said mine was not covered so I paid to get it fixed now the electric power steering is going out. My wife almost lost control of the car and it is a safety problem and I do not think I should have to pay for there defected part. Steering wheel shakes violently when driving and staying still, almost caused an accident. Here is the same thing that is happening to mine go look. www.aboutautomobile.com/complaint/2008/Pontiac/G6/steering.the contact owns a 2008 Pontiac G6. The contact stated the steering shakes while driving at any speed and caused the vehicle to swerve. The dealer was contacted and they advised that the 2008 Pontiac G6 steering failure was not recalled. The VIN information was not available. The vehicle has not been repaired. And steering makes a popping and clunking sound when turning. Is getting worse (louder) as time goes on. The noise is now pretty much every time you turn and steering is becoming more "stiff".
