2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

Grand Prix 8-cyl

  • 35,000 miles


I have a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix gxp with 35,000 miles on it. I was just told that it needs its third set of front brakes and rotors. After the last brake and rotor replacement, grooves were being made on the front rotors within 2 months and the dealership said the brakes were wearing normally. I understand that GM knows about this excessive brake wear problem and is doing nothing about it. The last time the dealer replaced rotors and brakes free even though not under warranty. This time they are telling me they know of no problems with the vehicle's brakes and that it is normal for these brakes to need replacing this often. There appears to be some problem with the brake/vented rotor combination that is causing excessive wear.

The contact owns a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. While driving 55 mph a deer crossing the road caused the contact to lose control of the steering as she avoided hitting the deer. Also, the brakes failed and she was unable to stop the vehicle. The vehicle rolled over 3 times. The driver and the passenger were injured with broken backs. The vehicle was destroyed. A police report was taken. There was no mention of photos. The current and failure mileage was 34000.
