The car is getting dropped off tomorrow at the dealership and I dont want it back until its fixed! Please let me know if any of you have had any of these problems and whats been wrong!
I noticed this when I was merging into interstate traffic at 70 mph...Im not really sure what my RPMs were when I heard it but it was this high pitched squeak as the car changed gears. You know the noise that cars with the turbo in them make (like the Jetta with turbo), it was similar to that. But we all know our G6s dont have turbo!!!! It makes that noise everytime the RPMs get up there.
Your belt needs replaced.. mine was doing it the second I got over 3,000 rpm all the way to 5,000rpm.
PROBLEM 2: Shaking! I leave for work in the morning and my steering wheel shakes for the first 10 minutes of my 15 minute drive. You can see my coffee cup shaking, my Sirius Radio Receiver shaking...and also when im in the interstate theres a barely there shake that a new car should NOT have. Its definetly not a smooth ride
I am thinking out of balance tire. Not really sure..but the harmonic could cause this as well if yours is really loose. Get it checked ASAP!
BIG PROBLEM 3: Steering! What steering? This isnt a constant problem, but its enough to scare the crap out of you! I went to make a left turn and the car kept going straight. The steering wheel was locked. It let go right at the last second and I about landed in a ditch! Then as I was backing out of my parking lot at my office i turned the wheel a bit and it locked again. This has happened about a dozen times in the past month. Luckily it hasnt caused me to wreck!
This one is going to end up killing someone Im afraid. I saw a post on GMINSIDENEWS where someone rolled their G6 after her steering locked on the interstate. Ive personally had it lock up multiple times ..but usually when its cold and I havnt been going more than 5mph (lucky for me). Keep telling the dealer about this!!!! I try to bring it up everytime I go in... they at least need to address the issue.
I received a recall in the mail a couple weeks ago for the harmonice balancer so could this have something to do with any of these problems Ive had or could the harmonic balancer be PROBLEM #4?
If your harmonic is loose enough to cause the vibrations you mentioned about it can also cause major internal damage to the engine if you let it go too long. Get it repaired ASAP....
Also another annoying thing about my car is the rattle the sunroof shade makes. Is that even fixable?
Please let me know if any of you have had any of these problems and what had to be done! Thanks!
My sunroof shade rattles, door locks rattle, the passenger door rattles (if I hit the top of the panel..it stops for a while)... the car has a creak coming from the front end over bumps, another nice rattle noise as well... and the doors seem to shift in their frames over uneven surfaces causes all kinds of strange noises.
Aside from that my 05 G6 is great.
Cliff notes: Get your car to the dealership ASAP!!!!!
