I've had this same issue. It happens so random and when your not prepared to hear it. I think it might have to do something with flexing of the body or something with the audio. You aren't the only one though. This happened to me the other day. But to be honest your most likely going to be wasting your time when you take it to the shop. They will just say they didn't hear it. Good-luck and let me know if you find something out!

Mine does this too, I have a 2006 G6. I took it to a mechanic and he said it is in the steering and that many GM cars do this. My mom had a G6 and said her's did it too. The mechanic said that it does not affect your car any way or cause damage. I am not sure why it does this but I called a Pontiac dealership and asked about the click and he confirmed that this was a common problem and does not really mean anything is wrong with your car.

Thank god. Such a life saver. I didn't think it was anything major but I only hear it here and there. Its almost as if someone threw something at my car.

My guess is that its flexing/stressing or something. Thanks again.

Have anything dangly on your keys? Try driving with just the key for a while see if it clears up.

I think it's Pontiac in general. My GTO had a squeaky noise when it was up to operating temperature, like a belt slipping, but it wasn't. My G6 had a clunking noise on occasion, before I had made any modifications. My Grand Prix is plagued by the infamous whine of it's breed, and I've tightened, changed, lubricated, balanced, and rerouted just about everything on it.

The other simple solution I can offer is that when you hear it check to see if something is stuck in your tire treads. I had a black sheet rock screw caught in mine length wise. Didn't figure out what it was for about four tire rotations...
