problem #4

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • 180,000 miles


The gas tank is not sealed in the middle allowing gas and fuel vapor to leak from car! all the sway bar on the driver side has separated due to the rack and pinion, car has no sound when turning to the right but if you try and turn the car to the left it is as if the power steering is going out and make a loud grinding noise and is getting very difficult to turn left, also the windshield wiper do not work proper and cause problems in the rain, the key get stuck in the ignition all the time, feel as if motor is twisting or moving forward, will be contacting Pontiac due to recalls and problems arising.

At approx. 9200 miles a sudden increase in the braking distance and the pedal effort required to stp. When taking the vehicle in for scheduled maintenance at 9510 miles a noise in the front end was noticed that increased when turning. The noise was traced to the left front hub which was replaced. The brakes were said to be in specification although no quantifiable measurements were taken. The issue remains unresolved.
