Various Electrical Concerns

Increased resistance in an electrical connection at the body control module (BCM) may result in voltage fluctuations in the brake pedal sensor circuit. These fluctuations can cause concerns with various systems that monitor the position of the brake pedal, any of which would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will attach the wiring harness to the BCM with a spacer, apply dielectric lubricant to both the BCM and harness connector and the BAS and harness connector, and will reprogram the brake pedal sensor to correct these concerns.

Transmission Shifter Position Inaccurate

The shift cable may fracture, which can mislead the driver into thinking the transmission is in a certain gear, while actually being in another. This can cause a safety issue, as when "Park" is selected, the vehicle may not be securely in "Park". Dealers will replace the shift cable assembly and mounting bracket free of charge to resolve the concern.

Unexpected Loss of Power Steering Assist

The vehicles being recalled are equipped with an electric power steering (EPS) assist system. The EPS can fail unexpectedly while driving. If this were to occur, steering ability would be maintained but much greater effort would be necessary to steer the vehicle, especially at slow speeds. One of four remedies will be applied depending on the model and year. Parts are not yet available so expect a second notification when they are.

I've owned this car for 7 years and never had a problem. At 115 000 miles Im just changing my shocks and struts for the first time. all I ever did was change the oil every 3,000 miles and change the breaks a couple of times. Completely happy with my car. Ive beenbuying Pontiacs since 1960. Im going to miss them. Never had a bad one.
I've never been so ready to get rid of anything like this in my life! Looks can be deceiving.
