Car Review: 2008 Pontiac G6
March 02, 2012, 09:14 AM
I have a complaint , in which my car decided to not place itself in PARK as my gear shifter indicated. The power doors would not pop open when it was in PARK, and continued to ROLL. I then could not start the car in PARK, and ONLY in NEUTRAL. I then tried to replace it back into PARK and it was NOT IN PARK , and proceeded to ROLL.
I had to place VEHICLE in my GARAGE and place EMERGENCY PARKING BRAKE. 2 hours later mycar decided to START in PARK as it should, and I took it straight to dealer in OAKLAWN ILL. They diagnosed problem as SHIFTER CABLE INTERNAL FLAW ,and said that I could use my EXTENDED WARRENTY in which I pay a 250 deductible. I replied that there is a recall and gave a
GENERAL MOTORS # 09041.
NHTSA # 09V073000
THERE IS NO RECALLS ON YOUR 2008 G6 is what I was told,and nothing I could do about it,but pay the deductible.
MY CAR IS DOING THE SAME THING AT 52,000 MILES THAT THIS RECALL STATES.
I filed a complaint with NHTSA, and do not feel that this is MY RESPONSIBILITY.
PONTIAC will loose my buisness, and will be a fight to get this problem on the recall list.
Please if you are experiencing this lets get PONTIAC to fix their PROBLEM !!!
