i have a 2006 G6 with just over 78,000 miles on it. I bought it with 73,000 miles on it (i know, thats a lot of miles for a 2006) but, the only thing that I have done to it so far was put new brakes on. There is a rattling noise in the front drivers side corner which i should get checked... and the only other thing i can think of that has happened is one time i left the windows opened and it rained (=[) annd i think it like shorted out the air bag on the passengers side because the service air bag thing came up. However, once it got dried out and such it went away, but thats not really the manufactures fault that happened.

I have an 06 G6 GT with 33k on it, brake rotors, seatback releases both sides, right headlight peeled inside, blown rear speaker, a/c leak, passenger seat belt, and two chrome wheels peeling that the dealer won't make good. Is that enough?
sounds like you got a lemon son.

I have a 2.4L with 80K miles, my catalytic converter needs work currently. I had problems with the rotors not long after i bought it used 5 months ago. Those are my issues so far.

I have a 2006 G6. I was getting major vibration in the front when braking, so I had the rotors turned. Problem not solved...and actually got worse. I had to replace the front outer tie rods, and the problem went away. Not sure if anyone else has had to do this...seems like they should not have had to be changed that soon. Now I have a knocking in the back of my car and have no idea what it is. I hear it at slow speeds, but not when I brake.

This sound kind of funny to me :confused:. Did you take your car to a shop or do the work yourself?

I took it to a shop, who told me that the tie rods needed to be replaced...so I called my brother (who mechanics) and he did the work. Yes, they were bad. I was out there with him when he did the job, and I still have the old parts in the trunk of my car. I later told my brother about the knocking, but he was not sure what it could be (I do not live very close to him, so I cannot just bring it over to him on a whim).

It just scares me to have a knock and not know why or what needs to be replaced.

Can you elaborate on the knocking?

Yes. It is a loud knock, but not sharp (loud and dull if this makes sense). I hear it at low speeds, not when braking, and it is not always consistent (I may hear it consistently..knock, knock, knock, or I may hear a couple of knocks, then quiet a few seconds, and then a nother few knocks). Sometimes I do not hear it at all, and other times it is constant.

Did you try taking out all your old parts from your trunk, that may stop the noises! [I'm just trying to be a smart ass so if you don't have a sense of humor, just ignore me.] Being serious though, have you checked your spare to see if it's loose?

I have had several people ask the same thing. I have not checked yet (guess I should), but I am not sure why it would be the spare when it has not been moved, and has many things on top. The spare parts, by the way, are in the box the new ones came in, and then inside the net pocket in the trunk.

Yesterday I closed the driver's side door and the reflector fell off, not a big deal and I can fix it myself. But annoying because I had a 97 Grand Am that had the same problem. Let's hope Pontiac doesn't go into the bycycle making business or those kiddies are in trouble at night. :p
Ohh that happened to me on my drivers side door as well... they had to order a new one and it took 3 weeks, then they didnt even have the courtesy to put it in for me, lol, they just gave it to me to do myself... not a big deal, more comical than anything lol

I'm sad that all these people have been having problems with their G6's. My baby is an '06 Sedan (3500 V6) with 52,000 miles and the only problem I've had with her is the rotor warping, which I was ever so slightly annoyed with and had temporarily fixed with a resurfacing. Maybe I'll replace them somewhere down the road. I plan on having her a for several more years to come! Hope you all are enjoying your G6 as much as I am enjoying mine!

clunking noise on the steering of the 2006 G6, could be the rack and pinion, this is what is happening withmine and it is getting fixed for the second time on the same part.
