Leased a 2006 Pontiac G6 GT. Right after the 3 year or 60,000 km warranty was past, the automatic panoramic sunroof decides that it doesn't want to open. Guess what that means??? It means that unless GM is prepared to be merciful, I would then be stuck paying up to $3000 to get it fixed. Only to have to give the car back. It angers me because a 4 year old car should not have these types of issues, and the customer should not have to pay for it when there are sunroof issues all across the board. They say the issue is a mechanism is stuck. Very frustrated, and feel used and manipulated. Would never have another Pontiac. This was my second and my last.

I am leasing an '06 Pontiac G6 GT; lease is up Aug. of 2010.
I have had no real problems with my vehicle up until recently. It's the battery. I have less than 60,000 km on the car (can't remember exactly how many). Just like a few other people have mentioned, my car won't start on occasion. The dash lights up but there's a clicking. I find it hard to believe that a battery is in need of replacing on a car that is just over 3 yrs. old. Even with everything turned off and unplugged, I do this now all the time, it won't start. This happens especially if I haven't driven it for a couple of days.
I am guessing I'm going to have to replace the battery. My question is, when it's a leased vehicle can you just go buy a battery somewhere on your own or does it have to replaced by the dealership? I know it will cost more if I have to go through the dealership.
Does anyone out there know the answer to my question?
