GM has issued a recall for 8,012 Pontiac G6 vehicles from the 2005 and 2006 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Corrosion in a wiring connector in the brake lamps may cause those lamps to fail during braking.
Also, the faulty wiring may prevent the cruise control from functioning and make the vehicle more difficult to shift out of Park. Of course, the greatest danger is that other drivers may not have a warning when the driver of the G6 attempts to brake.
Dealers will apply a lubricant to the wiring to prevent corrosion, free of charge.
Owners can contact Pontiac at 800-620-7668 or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
