Do I have a lemon?
I bought a used 2007 G6 with about 50,000 miles.
About a month in the windshield wipers ran constantly. The local dealer ( greenfield IN ) installed a new "body control" ( about $500.00 ) module under the dash. That fixed the problem.
Later the transmission was very erratic and the dealer replaced a "transmission control" module ( about $200.00 ) on the left front inner fender below the electrical box. Transmission worked fine for about 6 months then it would shift into reverse going down the road! Very scary - - - took it to the dealer in Rushville IN and paid them $1,500.00 to rebuild the transmission. Dealer stated not under warrenty as the car was originally purchased in Canada.
Car started taking off - - - very scary as you would be driving about 30 MPH and all at once you were going 80 - - - as soon as you take your foot off the accelerator it would calm down and show a code S2135 or S2101 or S0101 - - - put a new accelerator pedal ( about $100.00 ) in and the car ran fine for about another 6 months. This is very dangerous in traffic or in a parking garage!
Started taking off again so , same codes, replaced the accelerator again but no change. Now I get the above codes plus it will give a code S1516 and put the car in limp mode. I now have about 62,000 miles on the car.
I am thinking I need the main computer - - - would this be where you would go next?
Rushville dealer put it back on their computer and told me I need a bank 2 catalytic converter and a fuel filter! I can't believe a plugged filter or converter will make the car take off, I feel like if either of those were bad the car would lack power and not spin tires.
I asked the dealer about the throttle control module and was told this car does not have one. I told him I wanted to trade the car for a new Malibu and was told the dealership computer would not allow him to take this VIN in trade as the car has had to many problems over the years!
If there is a throttle position sensor please tell me the part number and where it is and I will replace it next!
In Indiana the lemon laws do not apply to used cars!
When this car is right ( for months at a time ) it is a great car - - - - but then it gets gremlins and needs a block of C4 in the tailpipe!
