New Owner-Birmingham AL
Hi all, just traded in my '98 Monte I've had since high school and got a 2007 3.5L G6, Sport trim, but not the GT, metallic gray, 50K miles. Had a G6 as a rental a couple years ago and knew it would be on my short list when it came time to buy.
No mods yet, as I have a couple minor issues to clear up first, maybe some of you would have some insight:
-I'm the 3rd owner, and the place I bought it from (car lot, not a GM dealer) had only 1 key and no remotes. Need to get at least 1 new transponder key (can I get this at any GM dealer?) and I'm just going to install a Viper alarm, so that should take care of the remotes.
-Steering wheel squeak: The rest of the car rides perfect, except for a squeak when I turn the wheel. Sounds like it's coming from right behind the wheel and not deep in the steering system. Still under warranty (again, any GM dealer?) so I'll let them take a look at it, but I hear this has been a common problem? My steering iss all hydraulic, not the electric.
-Aftermarket brakes? When I bought it, the calipers were red. Was this a stock option, b/c I can't tell if they were stock and a prev owner painted them or if they are aftermarket (no stamps or labels). Going to pick up a haynes manual anyway.
