Hey, My name is Jonathan. I'm about to pick up my recent purchase in a few hours. It's a 2006 Pontiac G6 GT. I joined the forum in hopes that this car won't have the flaws that I've seen on some sites and I can contribute to here periodically. I do have one question. I haven't driven a car in awhile as we've been a 1 vehicle family for a few years, "mini-van". When I test drove the car I couldn't help but notice something and I couldn't find anything in the manuals about it. When you start the vehicle are the gauges suppose spike and then go back down? Is it a self test? I can't remember if my old car did that or not though I believe it did. I feel really stupid but I'd love to see what you guys have to say. I'm hoping it's not electrical although it is used it's "GM Certified". Any replies would be appreciated and I look forward to talking to you guys in the future.
