    Use the lawyer money to have a independent repair shop do the extensions.
    You will then get results.
    If mine leaked, I would just repair myself, the instructions are online.

    WEll, first off, I'm a girl, so I don't do car repairs myself. :-)

    Secondly, I have an excellent auto body guy who will probably be the one to do the repairs depending on what my attorney says, and how we choose to proceed.

    But most importantly, GM should be held responsible for fraudulently marketing this product from '05-'09 and selling it to unsuspecting customers who trusted them. It is a manufacturer defect which they were aware of and they are the ones that need to be held responsible, not the people who purchased the defective merchandise. IN a class action suit, the lawyers don't get paid until there is a settlement so it won't cost me anything… we get our cars fixed and GM pays for the damages as they should have done all along. They should not make people sue them, they should make good on something they never should have been selling in the first place. It is a real shame that GM is this pathetic. Look how many suits are against them in general. I googled it, and they have plenty of people suing them for the garbage they sell. They just don't want to make good on any of their defective merchandise.

    Good luck on your class action suit, let see 1-2 years to get done, maybe.

    What you say is true; however, lawyers don't just take on any old lawsuit - they only take the ones they believe they have a good chance of winning. This one would likely be un-winnable due to the bankruptcy protection GM received.

    Additionally, as gonogo mentioned, lawsuits generally take years to resolve and frequently do not get resolved to the benefit of the consumer.

    Reporting your issue to the NHTSA at www.safercar.gov is a good idea.

    Thanks for the info I'm going to report the issue to everyone and anyone that I can. Even if I have to call the news media… It doesn't do me any harm to make everyone aware..
    and lawyers will take any case they believe they can get paid on. I'm sure there are loop holes somewhere… GM is not bankrupt, they are still responsible to handle warranty and safety issues of the cars that were manufactured under the GM name even if the Pontiac division went out of business, GM didn't.
    It only takes a few people to get the ball rolling… I don't have the money to make over $1,000 worth of repairs myself.. replacing the moldy carpet, paying for their labor charges, etc. They should be held responsible. I'll do what I can...

    I'm sure an attorney can give you more complete information on this; however, the statement quoted above is untrue, legally, even if ethically you are correct.

    most of the time this issue can be resolved for under $200.00 without the extension tubes. it takes about an hour and a half.
  • amscottamscott Posts: 9
    WEll the GM dealer quoted me $700 to install the extension tubes, so if you can tell me how to fix it that would be great… since it was raining inside my car yesterday.

  • Problems with my Pontiac G6, when it rain hard I have water leaking inside the car thru my light fixture. Took the car in to the dealer but could not find any leaks. Took it back home and ran water for about 10 minutes over the sunroof but did find any leaks. Not sure if anyone is having similar problems.

    Thanks,

    Yvan B
  • hello navy2929, my pontiac g6 2009 is leaking from the ac unit into my floor board in the back passager side. i first noticed a smell the first week i bought the car in 2009.took the car into the service department and they put this deoderizer in my ac and i was ok for a while.but the smell kept coming back.the dealership put a new ac unit in my car and said it was fixed.well the next couple of day water started pouring out on both sides of the console took it back in and they said they fixed the problem.now the ac is leaking down my console into the back seat it always has water in it and smells like mold.the other day after i turned my car off i noticed water dripping on the out side under the car on the passagers side right were the water is on the inside.it was dripping in 4 places under my car from the ac unit. one of the sales person from the dealership stated it is a manufactor defect and they always have the g6 in their service department...what it is the ac unit can not be installed properly in the car causing it to slip and fall and leak inside the car and everyone thinks it is leaking somewere but its not ..let me know what you find out and i would love to know the year your g6 is and how long you have had it...thanks deonna

    I would like to know more about this slip and falls blocking the evaporator drain, does not sound right.
  • gonogogonogo Posts: 869
    This Service Bulletin from GM water on front and rear floor, AC drain needs modification. GM knows all about it.
  • Yes my dealership knows all about mine since 2009 when I bought it brand new with 16 miles on it. One week later I took my car in with a mold smell coming from ac unit and 3 years later they still are unable to fix the problem. And after doing research the issue has been going on since 2005-2009 and they have continued to make a defective product my allergies are serious and mold can make people very sick and even death. Please enlighten me and hundreds thousand other consumers that buy American made products. Deonna

    It's inexcusable that they can't get the evaporator drain to work properly after all this time, it's not rocket science.
  • For the mold smell coming from the a/c (out of the vents), have the dealer activate the "blow after" feature on the HVAC controller. I had it done to my "08 G6 in 2010 and have not had the moldy smell since.
