Multiple blown Radiators 07 G-6 Hardtop Conv.
I had a small accident in my 2007 G6 Hardtop Convertible I drove the front end into a shallow swale that damaged the front of the car and broke the radiator. Since then I have had the radiator replaced by the dealership 4 times. They insist that they have used 4 brand new radiators 3 from Pontiac and one off brand aftermarket. The 4th NEW radiator has failed; all begin to leak terribly in the left bottom corner of the radiator (Facing the car).
Other shops have looked at it and said they doubt that the dealership in question has actually replaced the radiator 4 times but I have no reason other than the continued blown radiators and the fact that they all failed at the same spot on each NEW radiator. Now the 4th radiator has failed, the GM of the dealership claims this is an inherent problem with the Pontiac G-6 but so far I have only found one other person who had to replace his radiator 2 times. This will be my 5th. The last time they returned the car the check engine light was on and the code is for a catalytic converter issue, but this light was not on before they replaced the last radiator, they told me it will go out after I drove it a bit, it has never gone out. So far nobody has found any reason that this car should have blown 4 radiators in a year, or why they all seem to leak from the same seam in the lower left bottom (Facing car).
The General Manager of the dealership that has worked on the car, seems to be saying that this is a GM problem that I have to fix before they will honor the warranty and replace the 4th bad radiator, has anyone else had this issue if so did you find out what was causing the radiators to fail???? PLEASE HELP

Reason: used GM instead of General Manager then used GM again as General Motors
