Pontiac G6 Reliability and Safety


Because it is still a young model, long-term reliability information is not yet available for the Pontiac G6. However, Consumer Reports does state that so far, "reliability has been average."
However, preliminary reports indicate that there seems to be problems with the Panoramic sunroof option. It has been reportedly the cause of severe wind noise and in some cases may actually leak. For the Pontiac 2008 year model the option has been deleted.
Another issue is reported cases of batteries running flat. The problem has been, in some cases, traced to a faulty body control module that continues to draw current even when the vehicle is shut down.
