EXTERIOR LIGHTING

6/25/2017 - PLEASANTVILLE, OH
THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHT SOCKET HAS GOTTEN OVERHEATED TO THE POINT WHERE THE PLASTIC HAS MELTED AWAY CAUSING THE LIGHT TO FAIL WHILE DRIVING. I REPLACED THIS SOCKET MULTIPLE TIMES WITH THE SAME RESULTS. I HAVE ALSO MADE SURE THAT ALL GROUNDING POINTS WERE CLEAR AND WORKING PROPERLY, WHICH THEY WERE ALL IN PERFECT CONDITION. THE DATE I HAVE PROVIDED IS THE MOST RECENT OCCURRENCE. THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM FOR THIS MAKE AND MODEL. IF YOU GO ONTO THE INTERNET AND DO A GOOGLE SEARCH IT COMES UP INSTANTLY WITH COUNTLESS ACCOUNTS OF THE SAME ISSUE. MY SISTER OWNS THE SAME VECHILE BUT IS A 2006 AND SHE HAS BEEN FIGHTING THE SAME ISSUE. THIS ISSUE COULD POSSIBLY CAUSE A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT WITH FATAL CONSEQUENCES SHOULD BOTH LIGHTS FAIL AT NIGHT.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

5/11/2017 - PLEASANTVILLE, OH
WE HAVE REPLACED THE FRONT HEADLIGHTS ALMOST 3 TIMES IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS DUE TO WIRING 'BURNING' AND CAUSING THE LIGHTS TO GO OUT. THE ACTUAL LIGHT BULBS THEMSELVES ARE FINE. IT IS THE CONNECTION TO THE BULB THAT IS THE PROBLEM. IT IS FIRST NOTICED WHEN STARTING THE CAR WHILE EVEN HAVING HEADLAMPS SET TO AUTOMATIC, THEY DO NOT LIGHT UP. SOMETIMES ONCE YOU START DRIVING, ONE LIGHTS UP WHILE THE OTHER REMAINS OUT. HIGH BEAMS, FOG LIGHTS AND TURN SIGNALS ARE FINE.

STEERING

4/27/2017 - GRIFFITH, IN
TWICE IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS MY POWER STEERING HAS GONE OUT IN MY 09 PONTIAC G6. BOTH TIMES THE POWER STEERING HAS GONE OUT HAS HAPPENED WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS IN USE AND MAKING A TURN. I NOTICE THAT THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THIS ISSUED IN 2014, BUT MY VIN NUMBER IS NOT INCLUDED IN THAT RECALL. I HAD TO REPLACE THE PUMP IN FEBRUARY OF 2017, AND AM NOW ON APRIL 27 2017 HAVING TO TAKE IT BACK IN DUE TO POWER STEERING ISSUES. I AM UNCLEAR AS TO WHY THE 09 PONTIAC G6 POWER STEERING RECALL DID NOT EXTEND TO MY VIN NUMBER, BUT CLEARLY THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH MY VEHICLE'S POWER STEERING THAT IS ABOVE AND BEYOND NORMAL WEAR FOR AN 8 YEAR OLD VEHICLE.
