4 days ago day upon starting the vehicle coming from the gym the power steering started going out. Since then it has lost all power steering while driving. This is a very serious safety issue. I've done enough research and noticed there is a recall on this model up until 2009 model year but not on the 2010? there really needs to be a recall on the 2010 Pontiac G6 because it appears to be very common amongst us G6 owners. GM needs to own up to this and make these vehicles safe before someone or myself get seriously hurt. Also the service ESC message has been appearing as well and "ESC off" light is on. Please help to get this issue resolved. I have made an appointment for tomorrow or Monday if they can get me in. Of course I'll have to pay for it because no recall has been issued for this model. Seems I'm not the only one with this problem and lack of or loss of steering could cause a major issue!

The brake lights will come on and stay on and the cruise control will not work also the traction control will shut off I feel this is a major safety to me and my family but cant seem to get GM to feel the same way with paying the bill. I seen you had a recall from 2005 to 2009 on these cars with the same problem I think the 2010 should be included.

Low beam headlights kept going out on both sides. Occurred numerous time at night requiring the continuous use of high beams. After replacing the bulbs with recommended wattage 3-4 separate times over a 5 month time span took car into the dealership. Dealership service found that the bulb connectors were melted due to the terminal being spread, and the high amperage required to run headlight caused heat to build up and melt connector. Headlight connector, socket, and bulbs (4th set of bulbs in 5 months) needed to be replaced. Question quality and correct engineering of electrical used for headlights.

I have replace my headlights once about a month ago. They have just burned out again. It is not appropriate that I should keep having to change out headlights due to an electrical failure due to how the car was made. This is something that requires a recall.

I thought my headlight bulb went out and so I went to the car dealership to have them replace it. A few months later the bulb has been going in and out for the last 9 months. The mechanics are telling me it's a wire problem and with the vehicle being a 2010 I shouldn't be having that problem. It's now Sept. 28,2012 and once again it has gone out...again. Plus since I got the car I've been hearing rattling either in the passenger door or the dashboard. The dealership wants to charge me but I feel I shouldn't have to pay for GM mistakes.

Pins inside wiring harness connector for right headlight corroded, making low beam headlight inoperable. There was no electrical grease inside connection to keep moisture out.
