A: When they road tested it the check engine light came on
B: There is a bolt missing from the control arm (the control arm is what they replaced to correct the steering locking up)
C: AND they notified me that my front tires are bald...the car has 19k on it. (I drive alot) BUT theres no way the tires should be bald.
I am sick and tired of this car!!! Does anyone know what I can do to get rid of this lemon?
Or does anyone have these same problems??
hey Carissa249.....i can fully understand your frustration and if it were me and MY car, i would feel the same way. fortunately for ME, my car has been great, except for of course the steering lock-up deal.
i suggest you do what BobG stated......if you want to keep the car, then ask, no DEMAND, that Pontiac replace your front tires since it has obviously had a control arm issue which could cause excessive tire wear. and again, find out WHY the check engine light was on. did they offer any reason?
BUT, if you really 'want out' of this car, then do as BobG suggests and speak to either the New Car Sales Manager OR the General Manager. remain calm, but explain all the problems you have had and how you have passed these on to the members of the G6OC!!!! maybe even take some copies of the posts with you to show them that we are having issues like yours.
let us know how it goes. by the way, if you DO pick up your car, ask them if they are willing to GUARENTEE, that by replacing your control arm, that your steering will not lock up again. i would be intrested to see what they say, as i have a hard time believing the control arm is the 'culprit'.......good luck
