    hapywife,
    Please keep me updated on your situation. Your service technician is best to explain what could have happened to cause this. Please let me know if you would like to start a case with GM. I look forward to your response.

    CHRISTINA, I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH THE DEALER. HE SAID A NUMBER OF THINGS CAN CAUSE THIS, SO I HAVE NO REAL ANSWER. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH HOW THEY ARE FIXING THE PROBLEM. THEY ARE GOING TO REBUILD THE TRANSMISSION INSTEAD OF REPLACING IT. REBUILDS ARE NEVER AS GOOD AS NEW AND AT 39000 MILES THIS TRANSMISSION SHOULD STILL BE AS GOOD AS NEW. WE HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT TRADING OUR COLBALT FOR ANOTHER G6 BUT THIS HAS CHANGED OUR MINDS FOR SURE. :(

    Past 3 yr-36K your chances of getting a new transmission are slim to none.

    WELL I MUST BE IN THE SLIM AREA CAUSE THE DEALER CALLED FRIDAY AND SAID THEY HAVE THE APPROVAL TO PUT IN A NEW ONE BECAUSE IT IS CHEAPER THAN TO REBUILD ALL THE PARTS IN THE OLD ONE SO THANK GOD I REALLY DIDN'T WANT A REBUILD

    Good luck with your "new" transmission.
  • I bought my '06 G6 brand new in '05....problems galore. At 30000 miles, I had to spend nearly $2000 for repairs. Of course I contacted GM, who essentially told me that I was on my own. Now, I've got a clunking noise in the steering, after already having invested in a new steering rack. One rear speaker doesn't work all the time, and the interior plastics, primarily the visor mirror covers, are junk. This was the first GM car I have ever owned, and rest assured, it will be my last.
  • i'm sorry you had such bad luck with your '06. after transmission replacement, we left for north Carolina on 8/13 not one problem, came bad last night and same thing it is running good. but i wanted to tell you that some one told me that if 3 major repairs are done within the warranty that the lemon law should come into play. so you may want to check this out. not sure if what i was told is true but maybe it is and could help you.

    scottj794,

    I apologize for the problems you experiencing with your vehicle. Could you please email me your VIN? I would like to look further into your situation since you stated you contacted GM.

    You can get my email by clicking on gmcustsvc.

    Thank you,
    Caron, GM Customer Service
  • I recently had my transmission fluid and filter replaced on my 06 G-6 and now seems like the transmission is slipping. The car has 132K miles on it and this is the first time I have ever serviced the transmission.
  • I recently bought my Pontiac G6 from a dealer and unfortunately my car is experiencing a whining during acceleration and well as some kind of noise coming from the front while trying to turn. I am pretty upset because the car is under 30k miles and obviously out of the 3 yr 36K mile warranty and now I have to pay to fix these issues. That is ridiculous! Why cant GM take care of these issues especially since I have not even made my first payment yet? When I bought the car I was told I still had over 70k worth of warranty left. But now I have discovered that these issues are not covered under the power-train warranty. I am very unhappy

  • Iv been hearing a grinding sound in by the axle I had it at the dealer an they told me they replaced a seal and I still hear the same sound iv seen many posts with tranmissioms why haven't thair been a recall I'm taking it back to the dealer if it not fixed this time any ideas on what to do next
  • I HAVE AN 2009 G6. WHEN MY TRANSMISSION WENT OUT I CALLED THE PONTIAC DIVISION OF GENERAL MOTORS. THEY ASK MY DEALER NAME. THEY CALLED THE DEALER AND KEEP ME INFORMED ON THE REPAIR STATUS. THEY GOT THE DEALER IN GEAR TO GET IT FIXED. AT LEAST U HAVE A SOUND TO GO BY TO KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG, MINE JUST STOPPED. THE GEARS WERE ALL BLOWN APART ON THE INSIDE. THEY WERE GOING TO REBUILD. I TOLD PONTIAC DIV. I DID NOT WANT A REBUILD. IT WASN'T REBUILD WHEN I BOUGHT IT 39000 MILES EARLIER. IT RUNS GREAT AGAIN NO PROBLEMS YET ALSO THERE IS A LAW SOMEWHERE THAT AFTER 3 MAJOR PROBLEMS THE CAR IS CLASSIFIED AS A LEMON
  • The dealer told me they fixed it the first time if it's not fixed this time I'll be calling the head manager

  • I have a 2007 G6 Convertible with the 3.9L engine and 4 speed automatic. In the past 8 months or so it has developed an intermittent problem with the transmission. I will have come to a complete stop and the transmission will not have down shifted to first. It doesn't seem to matter how long I have stopped. It can be a few seconds to a minute. When I accelerate it will down shift to first with a clunk. The distance/time until it down shifts varies. The longer it takes the harder the shift. I have taken it in twice to the local former Pontiac dealer. The first time they had it for a day. The second time I took it in I was going on vacation for almost a week. Neither time have they been able to replicate the problem. This second time they did discover a leaking water pump and replaced it under the power train warranty so I assume they are doing something to try to discover the problem. There aren't any codes or check engine lights or anything. I've never had problem in manual mode but I don't use that very often. The only time I have a shifting problem is from a dead start. It down shifts fine when I pass somebody.

    Does anybody have any ideas or suggestion or possibly had or heard of the problem?
  • Thank you for posting this, Ocalag6htc,

    Thank you for being willing to work with our dealerships, and I'm sorry to hear that the problem wasn't able to be replicated while in their care. As we do need to duplicate the concern in order to make a diagnosis, should things resurface and you decide to go back into the dealership we're available to help you work with them towards resolving this concern.

    Best,
    Sarah

    A delayed down shift should lead the dealership some where. Could be bad connector, lots of corrosion problems on G6 and Malibu electrical connectors.

    Have you had the transmission serviced (i.e. fluid and filter service)?
  • Having the same problem as this, two dealer changed my trans fluid, and told me to bring it back if the problem remains. Can you tell me if the problem was ever found?, if so, what they found.
  • Unfortunately, I don't have information as to whether or not the problem was found in this instance (I respond to the posts here, and another Customer Service Representative responds to emails and handles cases). Would you like for us to work with you towards diagnosing this with your dealership? If so, please get in touch via email with more information, including: your name/Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of yoru VIN and current mileage, and the name of your dealership.
    Thank you for your patience,
    Sarah

  • Yes I've had the transmission serviced. They did that on the first visit. Most of the mechanics I've talked to suspect a bad solenoid.

    This message is for GM Customer Service or any one who can answer. I bought my G6 about 11 months ago with 27,000 mi and it's been great. Last week at 39,00 mi it started to act up at about 40 mph when in high gear at a slow acceleration prior to kicking into a lower gear. The issue is that it jerks or feels like the engine is missing until I give it more gas to down shift. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? It seems strange that the engine would only miss at this point so I am suspecting it may be the transmission? Is this a sign that the tranny is going out already?
  • The transmission may be a possible cause, but having the vehicle looked into in general wouldn't be a bad idea. If we can assist in working with a dealership, please contact us via email with more information (please include your name/Edmunds username, the last 8 of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your dealership). My coworker Christina will advise you from there!
    Regards,

    Just wanted to update you on this issue; it turned out to be a miss on one of the cylinders with the engine under load, not the transmission. Don't know what is causing it yet though? :sick:
  • My 2008 Pontiac G6 GT is doing this exact same thing. I am afraid its the transmission. :( I just spent $900 on new tires last month so I'm hoping this repair isn't expensive! Did you ever find out what was wrong with yours?

    Thanks,
    Abby
