As far as I know, my brakes have never been bled since i've bought my car. You think it would be a wise idea to have it done when I have my new rotors + pads put on?
I wouldn't ever fool around with bleeding brake lines unless I had to. Its highly unlikely that there is air in the brake line if its still stock or has never been messed with. IMO, seraphim11 had a shop replace his/her pads with low to medium grade pads or the shop didn't turn the rotors. A question I have about the original post is, the soft braking, is it soft for the first few miles? Low quality pads will work fine after they get up to the proper temperature.

Actually, I had the dealer replace them. They resurfaced the rotors and then threw new pads on. The back they resurfaced also because they said the pads were fine (under warranty). Apparenty warped rotors is a problem with this car.

When I mean soft, I mean I brake and it takes longer than I expect to come to a stop. I had a 96 Honda before this and when I replaced them, they were really tight, hard stops. I had a friend of mine drive it around they said it was biting and should be fine. Some cars are different than others and it could also be that I'm half way through with the back so the combination of the 2 keep me from feeling the newness of the front.
My guess is the pads, perhaps they're not the same type as stock. Who knows? You could ask the dealership what name pad they use, then try to find out what the G6 came stock with. I doubt it will be the same pad.

He told me they were stock GM pads but I'll ask him..have to go back anyway bc they are replacing the weather strip for me. Have you had any luck with mudguards or are they just not necessary? I've heard there are some rubbing issues which I can see as possible. But since I have some extra 3M film, I may just use that instead.
I haven't heard of rubbing issues.:confused:
I plan to get some mud guards within the year.
