My annoyances, I could go on for days on how CHEAP these cars are built and the downright poor engineering and parts GM used to build these cars. The steering clunks (still can't design A I Shaft right), front end clunks over bumps (think it's due to the el cheapo rubber bushings everywhere that don't last 30,000 miles), rear end clunks over bumps, Electric power steering is poor with the power steering locking up which requires a new column worth about 500 bucks not including labour etc..., plastic on the back of front seats break off, brakes are to small for the car and don't last unless you drive like your grandmother, seats squeak, panaramic roof leaks (complaint from my buddy) Sheetmetal dings super easy, the 05 HVAC controls lights go out very quick, buttons seem to wear down quick due to the cheap plastic.... Lots of little things all over the car it gets depressing sometimes.

I have owned my 2010 G6 since March, here is my list:

The major thing I noticed is how poor the metal is on the body, it dents easier than any car I have owned.

The brakes are a pain, I replace brake pads every 3 months otherwise I am putting all my force on the pedal to stop the car.

The suspension is horrible, I feel every bump and my bushings sqeak like crazy over the tiniest bumps.

Poor gas mileage, I drive 90% city and I get a whopping 20mpg on average.

Cheap interior, the paint on the buttons is already wearing off, and the seats fabric snags easily.

So far, it's what I expected, a cheap and somewhat reliable car to get me around.

Wow, I have an 08 v6 with none of those problems.

Bought mine in June and pads are still like new, I get about 23 mpg city 34 hwy and I drive aggressively, my ride is surprisingly smooth, and as far as the paint wearing off mine are like new. No snags in the seats no dents on the body considering the hail its been through.

But you may be way harder on cars then me and my 9 month old son.

Not to revive a dead thread. But my annoyances are the fact that everytime i fix one thing something else goes wrong. I currently have a weird squeak in my seat, something is clunking in the front suspension, and my dad (mechanic for 42 years) believes my fuel pump is going bad. I already had the tranny blow. Replaced under warranty. One of the back coil springs snapped. And I can't remember what else right now. I can answer one thing though for the people who are annoyed by the gas tank. When I worked at a Subaru dealer the rep answered that question for us since most new subarus gas tanks are on the passenger side. This is in case you would run out of fuel while driving you are not standing on the road trying to fill it. After I thought about it, it makes perfect sense to me.
