bought it april 2010 and it had 42,999. right now it has 58k. haven't really used the auto stick yet. hope it works. it was a rental car previously. i think the pass air bag lite works.

there is a recall but my VIN was not covered (according to dealership)....i had my brake lamp switch replaced and it seems to have done the trick. ask your dealership/repairshop if your vin is covered by the recall. btw if you end up having trouble getting out of park, you'll have to push the brake pedal in REALLY far to get it in gear.

Very common problem. Just clean connections on Body control module by unplugging and reconnecting a few times, and put some dielectric grease in the plug, and reconnect a final time.

Me too

I realized that my cruise control only worked intermittently a couple months ago. On a long trip yesterday I noticed it again and found out a lot of owners had the problem. My G6 is a 2008 and thus not part of the recall (at least not on the ntsb site). From what I understand the first recall was in Jan 2009, so wouldn't it make sense that my 2008 would have the same problems as the 2005 and 2006 models for which a recall had been issued?

Well I decided to go with the cheapest option and put some dielectric grease on the BCM. Under the recall info it says "DEALERS WILL APPLY A DIELECTRIC LUBRICANT TO THE CONNECTOR TO PREVENT CORROSION. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FOR YOU FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON FEBRUARY 17, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT PONTIAC AT 1- 800-620-7668 OR OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM."

I'll keep you posted to let you know if the problem persists.
