Now dont get me wrong, i LOVE my G6. I have 69k on mine but am curious to know you guys/gals problems. Myself? I have replaced rear brakes at 33k, raido replaced due to paint chipping, intermediate shaft 3 times and steering gear box once (at about 60k), soliniod valve replaced, front brakes 50k and one sway bar. No i do not hot rod my car, it gets babied and oil changed like clock work. Washed about every other week.

replaced...

When I purchased my 2006 G6 GT the CD player didn't work so I got it replaced...
The "EVAP Purge Solenoid" broke (a little vacuum tube that goes into the engine's intake manifold) and it was replaced...
the latches on the rear seats (which enable them to go up and fold down) were broken when I got the car as well... and that's all I can think of

Front and rear brake pads at 53K, tires at 47K, and just the normal maintenance. I do have the steering clunk so I have to see if my extended warranty will cover that. I have about 58K miles on it now.

Your "clunk" is your intermediate shaft. It will fix the problem for a few months and then if it starts doing it again then it will be your gear box changed. Gearbox change is 600 bucks and shaft is 300. Unfortunatley mine was not under warranty.

I don't know how good my extended warranty is yet, but it specifically says what it WON'T cover and I don't think it mentions anything about the intermediate shaft or the gear box, so I should be good. I just have to figure out a day to take it in to minimize the disruption.

recommend all the car owners find one professional diagnostic tool yourself,then you meet problems you can find where's the problem,then you can decide what to do next...

buy one in ebay,or just a eshop,recommend you eobd2.com..

I noticed on your list of mods that you have Eibach lowering springs. Are they the ones that lower it 1.5 in the front and 1.7 in the rear? Those were the only ones I could find. Did you have to replace the stock struts and get a camber kit? What was the final lowered height?

yeah those are the ones. Those are the only ones Eibach makes for our car. I havnt changed the struts, but I did change my rear shocks, but not because of the kit it was because the dealer told me they were squeaking, but come to find out after I changed them it was some stupid clip that hold the Parking brake line..... Didnt get the Camber kit either, just been rotating my tires with every oil change and they are weraring evenly... I gotta tell you their definitly one of my favorite mods. Love them.

Not sure the final height, but if you find my thread in the "members ride" section I have pictures.

Bought the car used with 25K on it.

Within two months, the battery failed and the power steering supply hose started leaking. In October the thermostat failed (stuck open). I just had the driver's seat track replaced (squeaky). All work was done under warranty.

Last April I had to replace a rim due to hitting part of a tree branch at high speed. It also ripped out that tire's sidewall, and because a replacement was no longer available I had to replace the whole set.
