2005 Pontiac G6 from North America
This car has a lot of glitches
The car, from time to time, will not start. I have to jump start the battery (even though it is fully charged) to get the car to start. I now carry a portable battery jumper (first time I've ever had to do this).
The CD player does not work, I cannot even get my Cd's out of it.
I took it to the dealer to be fixed, asked for a loaner car which they provided through a rental car place. They called me the next day and told me they could not find anything wrong with it, and didn't want to pay any more rental car fees, and to come pick it up.
The trim peeled off the side.
The driver door does not stay open. When I open it, I then must hurriedly jump out of the way as it slams shut.
This is probably the biggest lemon I have ever owned.
However, it is a cool looking car, especially with the sun roof opened all the way. I like the way it drives (when it starts), and it accelerates beautifully, which comes in handy because I tend to pull out in front of people.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Okay, you have 122k miles on it, so obviously it won't be spectacular. Its practically scrap metal now, so you can't say that you honestly expect to drive the bejeebers out of a car and expect it to last forever.

What the heck? 122k miles should be nothing for a car this new; the car should still be running as tight as a drum. You should demand something be done about your car.

As someone who has put over 300,000 miles one one domestic, and over 200,000 on about a dozen more, I have to agree with comment 17:52.
The car is only 22,000 miles out of warranty and definitely should NOT be having ANY problems this soon. I'd try to get GM to check it out at no charge. I've never had any problems with my Ford, GM or Chrysler vehicles before 200,000 miles. This is not typical, especially for GM.
