2010 Pontiac G6 Owner Comments

There were multiple occasions where we were locked inside our vehicle and unable to get out due to a faulty door handle/ lock. To exit the vehicle we would had to crawl out the window or through to the back seat. We ended up fixing the problem with a local car dealer, however could never get the company to admit any fault for the problem. We know of other G6 owners that have had the same problem and have not been able to get it fixed. This problem really needs to be addressed!

I have got locked inside my car. I was with my family at casey's and I could not get out of my driver side door. We unlocked it again and again but could not get the door to open. The other doors worked fine. Finally my daughter helped me out of the car. This just happened to my son too and he told me to file a complaint as well. There is one other girl that we know of that has the same issue. It was very scary being trapped inside the car. I was just glad I wasn't alone.

I have been locked inside my vehicle at least 15 times. Yesterday both the driver door and the passenger door would not open. The car was in park, I pressed the unlock button several times and could hear the door unlock, however the door would not open. I have called Pontiac and they have stated that there is no recall on this. So I looked further into this by doing a general search on google and apparantly there are hundreds having this issue. My mother and sister both drive a G6 as well and this has happened to them as well. I would think an issue like this would be just a serious as Toyota's brakes not working. If there were to be a fire or serious wreck I would not be able to get out of my car. I have had to crawl out the window or through the backseat to get out of my car. As a professional business man let me tell you how embarassing this is when you are arriving at a meeting with a client and they have to see you crawl through the back door to get out. Pontiac is not doing anything to remedy the problem and if you search the internet you will find this is happening to many people and the model of the year of the car really does not matter. I saw a 2006 with this issue all the way up through the 2010 model year.
