Drive Train, March 15, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The shifter cable adjustment may become dislodged. This may cause the vehicle to show that it is in "Park," when it could actually be in another gear. If this happens, the vehicle may move and not be secure. Dealers will inspect the shift cable adjustment clip to make sure it is fully engaged, and will replace any shift cables that cannot be secured. The General Motors recall number is 09041. The recall began on March 24, 2009.

Electrical & Lights, February 10, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles are being recalled because the weight on the key ring and/or a jarring event while driving may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern.

Pontiac G5 Reviews

I've had my 2007 GT since 2008 and I love it! Only issues I've had is the back brakes sound horrible (briefly) after it has rained and there is a clicking noise with the air/heat on. Other than that, this car has held up, everything works just as it did when I bought it. Pontiacs are really good cars. Hated to see them go.

Great value car. Owned this car since 2008. It is now 2014, and she has over 125,000 miles on the odometer. I got the base model with no power locks, windows, etc. Never had any major repairs at all. Replaced a rear strut after a four drive on rough gravel road and had a a/c hose break, replaced the accessory belt once...regular wear stuff, that's it. Been coast to coast and over terrain only trucks usually brave. Too bad they don't make them anymore.

DON'T DO IT! Tranny went out before 80k and has only cost me ridiculous amounts of money. Cheap car.

2007 Pontiac G5 while driving all at once: the doors will
unlock the speedometer goes to zero the mileage reads power steering and
the transmission goes in to 2 gear (no matter how fast your going) if you put it on mileage or trip it
shows 000-000 or something to this effect

THIS HAS BEEN THE WORSE CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED....THEY SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET...MYIGNITION HAS WENT OUT AND ITS BEEN TWO WEEKS AND THE DEALERSHIP KEEPS CHARGING ME MORE AND MORE BUT THEY DONT KNOW HOW TO FIX
